Every now and then I try to finally make something realistic, and, well, it doesn't always turn out that realistic. This is my attempt to make a six-spot burnet moth (Zygaena filipendulae) for no explainable reason... anyway. I still have the patterns for the wings somewhere on my computer (kinda impressive, considering my obsession with deleting every file as soon as it's not necessary anymore), but they're pretty useless anyway as I made them in the dumbest way possible; the graph paper was turned ninety degrees and I realized it after finishing the pattern. It would be way more reasonable for the "horizontal" rows to go across the wing, not along it; this way, the wings are floppy and were pretty confusing to make. But to live is to learn, right?
