Steampunk Hive by sweetgreychaos Steampunk Hive by sweetgreychaos
I'm very incredibly proud of this, even though I can see the errors in it, & it is easily the most time consuming project I have done in over a year.

Steampunk Bee FTW. PS) Yes, I know putting gears on something does not steampunk make... but jeemuz, I made it, I can call it a frikkin pumpkin if I want to. :XD:

:heart: I was so afraid of messing this one up, because any section needing cleaned up would also need the honeycombs redone... so I took my sweet azz time.

Awesome! I find it rather appropriate that I was listening to Steam Powered Giraffe's song 'Honey Bee' when I ran across this photo. Brings a whole new imaginative concept to the song. I could easily see this automaton as the one that they were singing about. Steampunk Bee FTW!

Thank you! The funniest thing is- I'd never even heard of that song, and then after I painted this several people brought it to my attention. And it's awesome.

It's funny because the only Steampunk band I listen to is Steam Powered Giraffe... Their song is Honeybee :D
How ironic
Amazing makeup!!!!

Thanks! :D Even funnier is that I'd never heard of the band OR the song until I painted this- and then I was directed to go watch. XD
