Butterfly Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Butterfly Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
This is my entry for the "Colors Of Spring" Contest at :iconsoulcollectors: [link]

Branches, leaves and flowers have been carved from the pages of the book. Butterflies have been hand drawn and colored. Some are modeled after specific species, some are of my own making.

:la: This is so amazing! :D I like how you colored the butterflies but nothing else is colored so they really pop! :happybounce: Also how the shadows give the piece a lot of depth.

It's great! All the branches and flowers are shaped neatly and really nicely (i'd torn the pages into bits maybe if I tried to make this) the butterflies are also beautiful.. I hope this book isn't an expensive one! But I think it's worth the art, the concept is pretty creative. Good luck, I hope you win!

It is, it's definitely not my normal work. I made it for a contest that's concept was spring, so color seemed to fit. I've made a few books that I drew birds for in the past.
