The Butterfly Collector by MyNameIsSwann The Butterfly Collector by MyNameIsSwann
I'm not very happy with this one's colours (the only thing I was sure about was that the skirt was going to be in blue and yellow stripes), but I'm so sick of looking at it I don't think I'll rework it in the near future...

Um, what exactly is she suppose to be doing; is she eating them or just breathing in the fumes/dust from their wings?

This is such a beautiful piece of work ma'am you should be ever so proud the grotesque mismatch of metal and flesh forming to give way to a collector of diverse butterflies of colour and shape. it is very poetic (:

Um, no, although I too can see some similarities. :)
I was thinking more about how I'd model the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, haha.

Doesn't look that bad to me, but, of couse, the artists are always way more critic with their own work.
