SleepyTime Bee by Jaydenwolf SleepyTime Bee by Jaydenwolf
Progressively working toward more and more detail in work- it is really a test of patience.
Inspired by my apartment being infested by Yellow Jackets for 3 months. (I am afraid of them, honey bees are much cuter and I preferred to paint them.)

Critique is very welcome- I have a new years resolution to make a work worthy of a DD, and I'll only be able to do that with improvement.

Anyway just wanna start by saying your style of art is super cute. Now you said you were trying to create more details in a picture (I'm trying the same right now :D ) anyway i think you could have added a bit more stars and made it a bit darker on the top and made the liquid appear to be sorta glowing (not really glowing but that light affect you get when its dark and something like liquid is reflecting some light, sorta makes it look like it was glowing) any way i also think some of the liquid could be dripping down the tubes on the right of the picture. Maybe also a design or some words on the mug the bee is holding. Anyway i don't see anything wrong with the picture just thought i'd give you some ideas to help you with your detail goal :D
What do you think?

I was immediately struck by the originality of this piece, because I knew immediately I'd never seen anything like it before: in a heavenly night-time cloud space, I'd expect to see whimsical bears or angels in nightcaps or something... not bees and alchemical potion delivery systems :) It's very cute and eccentric.  I found myself wondering exactly how all of the elements of the picture occurred to you while you were fending off wasps (a negative situation not inducive to creativity, I would think). 

I agree that there needs to be a bit more shine and line sharpness on the vertical glass tubes, so that they "read" as glass tubes.  The rest of the complex is alright, because the honey swirling through them makes it clear what one is looking at.  The darkness of the starry sky is alright now, and I like how you've traveled through yellow, green, gold, and deep blue in this picture, with tiny punches of pink and purple in the mug and nightcap :)

This is cute and I really like the whimsy of the honey tubes. I like the details of the mug and hat, too. :'D I think more contrast could be added, most likely darkening the sky as well as providing more color toward the bottom to make the bee and that cloud stand out. I'm not sure if this was intentional, but the tubes look pretty wobbly, so polishing that might help things look cleaner all around, but it's definitely not necessary because it works both ways.

Did you make a thumbnail of this before you drew it out? That can be crucial for deciding proper composition- although this composition works, it could be stronger- perhaps have the tubes even come toward the viewer?

Since you asked for some kind of feedback on your drawings I would suggest to study some topics to widen your knowledge on how to construct an image better:
- composition
- color theory
- animal anatomy
Here are some sources for that:

And various tutorials on conceptart.org, hope i have helped :)
Merry Christmas.
