This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
A very simple icon that shows a beehive surface (regular hexagons placed together, made with MS Paint, and bumpmapped with GIMP). I'm just a newbie so I'll be starting with the more basic ones.

In order to get this icon to the point where it's quality meets approval, you will need to add shading and highlight to every single hexagon, use color variations between different hexagons and try to make it not so texture-pattern-lookalike. Use dynamic style to express the shadows like the Warcraft artist do - and try to avoid copying one finished cell to others.
