step 1 of 13

These are the metal textures I used and what I used them for.

Creation of Butterfly Repair: Step 1

step 2 of 13

I began by cutting out the shape of the wings using the pen tool. On separate layers, I used a low opacity paint to color the wings.

step 3 of 13

I used a section of the corragated metal texture to make the pipes. Distort to make it skinny, then warp to shape. The very curvy part I made by picking up the colors from the pipe and using the pen tool and stroke. Dodge and burn to give the pipe a rounded shape.

I used gaussian blur on the bumpy copper texture to smooth it out, then cut out the shapes using the pen tool. Dodge and burn to give them shape.

step 10 of 13

This shows how I made the supports for the wings. The extra bits were erased later. A circle from the "steel" and some dodge and burn to make the bolts. I took a small section from the butterfly and then used match color to make the wings yellow.
