:Royal Jelly: by Asher-Bee :Royal Jelly: by Asher-Bee
so many months ago, i was asked by a very kind friend of mine ^ChewedKandi aka shar aka dollface aka editor and author, whether i'd like to be featured in Adobe's New Book, set to hit stores December 27th....to which i replied "heck yeah!"

you have no clue how hard it was to keep this under wraps, especially after she also asked me if i'd be interested in doing a tutorial for said book....to which i replied by flailing around in my chair...the book is called Adobe Master Class: Illustrator and it's already in pre-order mode!!!!

Follow this link to order at 40% off the cover price!! :star: [link] :star:

So there is a tutorial on the step by steps of how I made this in the book, as well as some of my artwork and links to all of my social media sites. :heart: I can't wait to order mine! I'm extremely proud of this piece and my friends who are also in the book which include *ssst and *CQcat Congrats ladies!!!!

This piece is just gorgeous! I'm totally jealous of your talent. The fact that this is so realistic just amazes me. It really makes me think about other universes that may exist that this could me normal. Well, that's because my stupid brains are leaking all over the place and the only part left is the one that's kinda crazy and the part that daydreams. Obviously I've lost my sense of logic too! :D

That really is a stunning piece of art. The colours are chosen so good, they establish a certain mood and the background is so great and detailed and the character design is amazing too. I just totally like this :dance:

Which one? The haterade about how someone doesn't "like them"? Oh ya dude!!! It can get a lot worse. Not everyone realizes the impact of their comments... They might hate it in relation to what they were expecting because they had misconceptions.. Also, there are some angry angry people out there. Best to just ignore and forget :shrug: Although if there's anyone who's great at turning the negative into positive with kindness it sure is you!!! I've even used your shower-them-with-compliments-first technique to get credit posted on some more adoptables XD So thanks!!!!!

This is so beautiful!! I pre-ordered my book from Amazon ('cause it's a few dollars cheaper there and I had a voucher I needed to use anyway lol) Can't wait to get it!! I was saying to Nas, I'd love to be able to post it around to all of you to autograph it, but that would get quite expensive with postage...but I'll think about it seriously! I'd have to pay postage on my end and postage for all of you to forward it to the next person...might be difficult..lol

Africanized bees are extremely aggressive though. We have them in my area, and they have killed both dogs and people in their own yards. Arizona's a weird place in general, but I didn't know swarms would come after you in your own territory eek. >_<

ah, killer bees were introduced, African bees are the ones that swarm but venom's weak so they go in numbers. but introduced they bred with our honey bees that have more stronger venom, making the killer bees that are a deadly mix. :c
