Bees! This is "Busy Bee", weilding a hammer, and "Bee-autiful", with a flower. D'aww. I'm working on "Bee-have" (police bee? haha) and "Bee mine" at the moment, but I've run out of bee-based puns, now.
They're sort of a "cute"-reworking of my Danata, just for the sake of being cute. ^^
This of course is Mirii, albeit with four arms and a scary tribal Mayan-esque look. The papyrus in the background is real, with real stitching; it originally was a sort of "lotus" design but I note it looks more like wings, right now. The image is marker and inks, digitally cut out and "pasted on". I'm probably going to re-draw the character, but keep the papyrus, as I'm not 100% satisfied with the picture - the clothing in particular, not so much the anatomy of the character.
This is technically another of my book cover attempts, hence the big title. (You'd think finishing editing the thing would be a better idea, right?) I need to strip the thing down to its bones and rebuild it, essentially. Mirii's story was mostly fluff - weird for weird's sake, I suppose? - with a lot of parts that didn't really seem to add anything to the story. I need to give Sunstone a more consistent personality, too. I might use the "record cards" type technique to edit it, it might be easier to visualise where I'm taking it.
