Butterfly progress

Tue, 12 Oct 2010

I've been working on the colour and layout for the butterfly model. The picture here is of a rather large painted lady butterfly.

The art work is made up from several photographs of painted ladies manipulated in photoshop and stitched together.

Having made one wing I simply flipped it to make the second. I then printed the wing out onto paper rather than card. In this model the front and back of the wings will need to be aligned accurately. Alignment printing is always difficult so I think I'll suggest printing the front and back separately onto paper then gluing them together.

I'm hoping to finish most of the layout tomorrow.

After that, I have an interesting idea for a cam based model 😉
