One of the Giants Saved Me by Zimeta One of the Giants Saved Me by Zimeta
Woo! Another picture finished. I'm on a roll. :D

I came up with this silly concept a few weeks ago while I was on a short vacation in CA. We went swimming a few times and -of course- saved every bee we could from drowning in the pool.

So, here's someone saving a bee from drowning. Not quite your average bee. She kinda looks like a fairy, huh?
She's even got a pollen bag. I guess she didn't let go of it even in the face of drowning.
Luckily one of the wingless giants took pity on her. Boy will she have a tale to tell when she gets back to the hive. :o

I'm trying to think of a way to reference the bees in the Vodaphone adverts but since you're from the US you probably wouldn't get the reference anyway. Nice work though.

Bees would totally not let go of their pollen for anything.

Looks great! Love the bee's design.

I know what you mean about drowning bugs. I try to save them if I can get to them in time.

Funny how most people will try to kill one if it gets in the house, but then when you see one drowning, you're like "aww. Poor baby!" :XD:

:iconsapphirexblue:

Yeah. I guess it's because they're helpless there, and not flying around your room bothering you. xD Really, I try to leave bugs alone when they're outside.

Mosquitoes are the exception to that, though, since they love me and I'm really sensitive to their bites. :(

I love the water effect the most though. It's got a different look to it, it has this misty look to it which I just find kinda different and beautiful! 83
