I haven’t posted any of the Moth and Butterfly concept sketches for quite a while now, so here is a larger collection of a fair number of them all together. Sometimes I would find myself doodling something else to get a fresher feel going, you can see some of these extra bits here and there that I have left from the scans.
There is some interesting development in some of the ideas, bringing out the more geometric Butterflies through their jewellery and the Moths with those tattoos etc. The hair differences and materialarity of the two cultures is also there. (earlier sketches are at the bottom if there is a trend…)

While we are here, I liked the way when I just leave all those multiply layers on they all merge/mix together and these cool patterns emerge.
