This project is for two large butterflies I have created recently. The first one is the monarch with traditional colors and the second is a frost version I put together with ice and water for the colors to give the wings a more translucent look.

I created this by first finding a basic black and white outline and pattern image for the butterfly which I imported in using a pixel art script. I then cleaned up the imported pattern and changed it to a colored version with wool blocks. After, I modified it to make the wings look 3d and finished it by manually adding in the body and the antennae.

Both the monarch and frost version are included in the schematic and world save files.

Thanks! Ice is a fun material to build with, I think it looks a lot better than glass, it's just a pain when you need some light around it...
