I'm not entirely sure this goes here, but I'm putting it here anyway, temporarily.

I was in a butterfly swap last month, and made this death's head hawkmoth t-shirt for my partner:

(The circle above its head is from my camera, not part of the design. I had a hard time getting good pictures. In fact, my caterpillar picture is so messed up, I'm borrowing the picture my partner posted in the gallery).
And on the front of the shirt, I painted its caterpillar:


I basically took an image of a death's head hawkmoth off the internet, printed it out, and drew a grid on it. Then I drew a (larger) grid on the t-shirt in either light colored pencil, and transferred the basic outline, then painted it in as best I could.  I'm really proud of how it turned out, as it's the first time I've used the grid method and come up with something that looks decent.

Comments welcome!

That looks really awesome! It makes me want a luna moth shirt.

Thanks!  I'm not really very good at painting, but I do like doing it, so this was a fun project to work on! The bonus is that my partner really likes it, too!  Smiley
