Bottled Up: "Serene" Making of

This is my entry for the "Bottled Up" project. 

I wanted to create something realistic but posed in a stylized way. The idea behind this project is a personal project that I've wanted to work on for some time but never got around to it. I love the idea of nature made from mechanical parts. For this I chose to construct a bee on a flower from PC parts. The base is a power supply unit and it's sprouting Ethernet cables, USB cables and PC fans. The cable ties represent thorns on a rose bush. I used heavily corroded textures on the bee and glass spheres on its back to create a sense of a fuzzy coat.

The idea was to take very hard objects and create something soft and yielding - something serene.
