The Luna Moth / Actias luna

I couldn't really understand the fascination with moths but still signed up for the March inspiration on Art Elements - the Luna Moth. I have to admit it's impressive :)
Не мога да разбера какво толкова им харесват на нощните пеперуди, но въпреки това се записах за мартенското вдъхновение в блога на Art Elements - Actias Luna (не успях да намеря в мрежата популярното наименование на български на тази огромна зелена нощна пеперуда, която обитава Северна и Южна Америка - размахът на крилата й може да достигне 18 см). Трябва да призная, че е впечатляваща :)


First comes this wire wrapped brooch - I took some liberties with the interpretation, it's far from the design I had in mind and I'm not quite happy with it. Plus, it's distorted (how did this happen?). But my husband liked it and kept showing to our friends :)
Първо, брошка от тел. Интерпретацията е твърде свободна, дизайнът няма нищо общо с идеята и не ми харесва особено. Освен това е крива (това пък как стана?). Но съпругът ми я хареса и постоянно я показва на гостите ни :)


Follows a sketch. My drawings were awful and the only one acceptable was on checkered paper! So I embraced the possibilities of the sketching software - I took a picture of the drawing, imported it to the SketchBook and this is the result.
Следва рисунка. Скиците бяха ужасни, а единствената що-годе приемлива беше на карирана хартия. Тогава се възползвах от възможностите на таблета си - снимах скицата, импортирах я и се получи това.

The colors of the Luna Moth reminded me of a flower brooch I had made a long time ago.
Цветовете на тази нощна пеперуда ми напомниха на една отдавнашна брошка от плат.



This is a blog hop and from the sneak peeks on Instagram I figure you will see some amazing things if you visit these blogs:

  1. That's very sweet!
    I would never have thought of a wire wrapped piece and the sketch is pretty!

    1. Thank you, Cat! Wire wrapping is my current "thing" :) I quite like the drawing myself, even though it's not exactly what I was hoping for :)

  2. I love how your husband was so proud of it and showing it to everyone, that's so sweet of him! I love the brooch and I actually quite like the sketch too and think it would make a great print. I didn't even try to draw one myself. If I have to be even a little bit symmetrical, it is not going to go well at all. Thanks for participating in the challenge again this month!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! My husband is quite honest and never spares me a negative comment, so I know he really likes the brooch :) A print, um? I'm glad you think so!

  3. I am in awe of anyone who can do wirewrapping especially with beads. Your brooch is sweet & I love that your husband is so proud of it. Great idea to take a photo of your drawing and import it. I think it's a beautiful sketch.

    1. Thank you, Caroline! I am actually planning to wear it at the next craft show, I think it looks much better on me than just on display :)

  6. All three of your inspired pieces are brilliant, each in its own way! I love the colors in your flower! I wanted to use some Luna Moth green beads I have in a project and just didn't have time.

  7. I initially thought that the brooch was seed beading for its done intricately. Maybe the eyes and the body are bigger on yours, so you don't feel its a moth? But as a stylisation it works. I really like the soft texture of the fabric brooch. Its a great indirect representation of the delicate nature of the moth

    1. Thank you, Divya! I added the eyes when I realized the brooch had deviated from a more literal (and symmetrical) interpretation :) And
      I'm so glad I remembered the fabric brooch from ages ago, I have the same feeling about it!

  8. Beautiful job with these pieces! I do really like the beaded moth. I hate that you're not happy with it. At least you tried this challenge, I couldn't bring myself to do it. You totally did better than me by just trying. That's a win!

    1. Thank you, Hope! I usually sign up only when I have an idea what to make :) It's just that sometimes things turn out differently :)
