This is how I created the wings on Photoshop.
I have uploaded the butterfly into Cinema 4D to make it a moving image.
This shows how I created the model of a butterfly on Cinema 4D using plane and symmetry and linked them together to make double wings. I found this really easy and had no problems at all.
The tool that I used to add texture and animate is material editor, alpha, spline, null, align to spline and record the frame.
This shows how I animated the butterfly.
It was amazing to learn how to create a moving image and I really enjoyed playing around with these tools.
I decided to animate the butterfly in a scene.
I experimented with four butterflies flying in all directions and people looking in awe.
I enjoyed creating the butterfly and decided to take this project furthur with the animation. The scene was sometimes a bit fiddly trying to get everything in view but making the butterflies the main focus. In the end I am satisfied with the animation even though rendering took forever!
