Animated Butterfly

Hello everyone, I recently finished my 3D Butterfly and I’m here to share it with you!

When I make a model I like to use it to create small scenes and trying different kinds of renders, so here is some works I did with this one

A single image - rendered in cycles.

A little scene - rendered in Eevee (1684 frames).

A changing wings effect - rendered in Eevee

I also posted different Sketchfab scenes if you want to zoom on it or turn around it!

This is my first post here, so I hope you like it! :butterfly:


This looks great! The modelling, texturing, animation and composition are good!
If you want to make the butterfly realistic though, its animations won’t look so perfect. However, you don’t always have to go for realism.
A video a found of a rather avid butterfly, not so graceful as in your animation:

Hey Thanks a lot for the feedbacks!

I based my animation on a slow motion video
They’re doing something like a wave when they raise their wings (That I like a lot and pushed me to do this model) to probably be less affected by the wind

Of course their real speed its maybe 4 or 5 more faster than my animation and you see nothing of their movement, but I’ve intentionally slowed the animation to get something nice and more graceful!

This feels like a realistic slow-mo cam of a butterfly! You really captured the weight when the wings flapped downwards!
