The first thing I think of is butterfly effect. Not sure what I can do with that, though.

The wikipedia disambiguation page is helpful to find an idea. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_(disambiguation)

Sun Catcher

Non-competing

Cycles, 2000 samples, hdri

Maybe a little busy this weekend so made a quick scene just in case. Dichotomy of war and peace, represented by a warhorse statuette and military badge adjacent to a a delicate butterfly sun catcher.

Beautiful!

One thing, though: I noticed that character was posted on Instagram back in July 2019.

I think if you were to create a background scene, place the model in there, you could then enter it as an “Open” entry, indicating it made use of a pre-existing model (the character).

Turns out my original idea isn’t so original after all.

There is a type of rollercoaster track that is called a butterfly. It kind of forms the shape of butterfly wings as it loops twice.

Here is my progress:

Nice catch, @RobertT. I only wish it were possible to remove likes from a post now.

And it is even marked as pure! Some people have no shame…

I noticed that you updated your entry to say it’s Open, however I am still seeing the same image, which was originally published on this forum back in July 2019.

Of course, @Helge can correct me if I’m wrong, but I think if you were to model a new background and combine it with this image, you should then be able to enter it as Open.

Other than that, on its own, I am not sure it qualifies for as a de facto WC entry (i.e. something made during this specific Weekend Challenge time frame).

What really helps is that your background color is uniform and easily isolated (e.g. instantly selectable in GIMP’s “magic wand” / Fuzzy Select Tool, and therefore removable if you have an alpha layer).

Then the isolated render of the fairy would be easy to combine with a newly modeled background element.

I certainly hope that makes sense. Just trying to help!
