I was craving to build a dense modelling scene and after some research decided I would try a steampunk animal. I really wanted to make a feminine piece with a lot of intricate detail so I chose a butterfly and made it from golds, glass and small red stones, standing on top of a copper-feel flower inspired by the 2012 London Olympic torch.
This was showcased in 3D World Magazine, Issue 116 (March 2013) and was on display in the 'Steampunk at the Sangre' exhibition that was held at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, Colorado during Summer 2014 for its 42nd anniversary. The exhibition was centered around steampunk art, culture, and history.
This piece is available to buy as a limited edition print. Please email me to find out further details.
