Revised Honey Bee Model

Reworking my Honey Bee model (Apis mellifera) for a larger project I'm starting. I revised or redid everything from my older model except the thorax. Fur is just Paint Effects brushed converted to Polygons with the Arnold hair material. Model done in ZBrush/Maya, textures in Substance, rendered in Arnold with some color adjustments done in Photoshop.
