Although it is not really noticeable I designed this nearly without any computer by using stickers of animals. I cut them up into parts and set these parts together in a new way. Then I took a photograph of the LadybugButterflyDuckFrog. I also took a photograph of a picture I felt suitable as background. In a photo editing software I darkened the image of the background and combined both, animal and background. I also have softened some edges of the animal, but left some interesting lines which are the result of cutting out around the animal.
Maybe this is more an insect than an animal or maybe insects can be called animals.
Looking at the result I realized that a ladybug and a butterfly already have been interesting for me in the past. I created some characters and decided that my hero, who is a ladybug should have a companion who is a butterfly. Now in this illustration I even made one animal out of them.
