That buzzing sound by cabroon That buzzing sound by cabroon
So I was reviewing the design of Q Bee and let me tell you that the artists at capcom nailed it again. I read about her mythology and found out that she is a soul bee, in charge of feeding her beehive with souls. She is also kind of a mimic. her face is so unexpressive because ... that´s not her face!!, her real eyes are the blue orbs on top of her head. That´s the reason thatr during her fighting stance she is kind of looking at the floor, she is actually looking at you with her bee eyes. So in fact she is not a worker bee, she is a highly evolved predator. 

Sooooo if there is a soul bee, then there must be a soul spider, am I right??
based on these supositions I designed a soul spider based on the design traits of Q bee (fake face, real eyes on top of the head, insect elements hidden on outfit design, etc) and in my honest opinion it was really close and the idea was really good but I couldn´t nail the design as satisfactory as I would have wanted to. So long story short: the soul spider is not included in the pic because I didn´t feel satisfied with her design and she would have looked kind of not in the same universe as Q Bee. 

I´m not a fan of full body wrapping, which a spider would normally do with her prey. so I thought long and hard on a pose that would leave her inmobilized, exposed and with the "bee butt" out of the way for ... ahem... somethings. So moderate webbing. sometimes less is more. 

Anyway, I like how the bevel and emboss filter makes the webbing look 3Dish with little work, but if you try to make it all in one layer, it will all turno into a big blob of gooish web. So I made 3 different layers of webbing to give it enough volume and to be able to add enough  shadowing. 
I used Q,bee sprite pallete, but ended up changing it to fit the mood of the pic. mostly a Hue Sat adjustment. 
background, beehive pattern tweaked with an overlay of spider web. 

So all of this trouble for a bee on a web.,.. yep. 

Cabroon out.

Hello Cabroon,

I have a couple of gaming channels and gaming social media pages, and I was wondering if you would be interested in making some channel art for me? Art similar to this particular drawing based on a female bee. Please contact me if you are interested.

Q-Bee + Bondage = YYYEESSSS
Really nice angle and shot for her as well to show off her 'best' features~!
Ironically, you even uploaded this on my birthday ='D
So, I don't know who you are, and I'm sure you have no idea who I am, but thanks a ton for this~!

Nice I agree the full webbing does tend to leave a lot to the imagination

The detail on this one is fantastic. I like how her bottom (one of her bottoms) is lifted up to show the other, nice :D

Nice, funny thought would be a MvC related idea. One of the spider-men webbed her up after she buzzed by onlookers and freaked them out.

I believe that if I research about the character, the pic and the situation portrayed give much better results. I've even researched about your O.S. tan girl ;D

Is that so? Will XP-tan feature in one of your future works, perhaps? I'm excited by the thought!

Not wanting to sound like a nerd but web strands are stronger than iron strands of the same thickness, so she is really secured and going nowhere. :D

well yeah, spider webs are, proportionately.. but obviously you can easily break one.. so yeah. I doubt the adhesive on them is that strong either lol, so again.. yeah. but! I'm not in any way saying this is a bad pic for being light on the webbing. I love it! nice work.
