I made this 3d model fairly quickly after being inspired by a post on the Daz Forums. I started very simple but then had so much fun with it I got carried away and made a full Poser figure hehe. Making the textures was also very enjoyable. I have always done more dark type artwork and it was nice to use some bright colours for a change :)
About the 3d figure
Please Bare in mind that this figure is far from finished. When I first released this to help the forum member I wasn't aware that there were any butterfly models readily available. I intended to rig the legs and tune the joint parameters but then realized Daz3d had a much nicer butterfly package ( available here ) so I discontinued work on this one. Though unfinished I hope this model serves you well.
For Daz|Studio, Poser 5+ and Carrara
This was tested in Daz|Studio 1.8-2.0, Poser 7 and Carrara 6 but I assume it will work ok in earlier versions. The zip contains a few Poser Mat Poses and Daz|Studio Materials. UV templates are also included and I fully encourage others to make more texture packages.

Mike W. made some really nice textures for this butterfly model which you can find in his ShareCG downloads. Thank you Mike!
