This is an Animation Clip I made for Maya class.

It was the first time I used the software and I had no idea what I was doing back then. Texture Map on butterfly wings turned out pretty nice. I researched how many times a butterfly flips its wings per second to make the animation believable.

A butterfly is looking for some nectar, but many obstacles keep her from getting any flowers. Unfriendly crowds, spider nests ...after she is blown off in the strong wind, she finally hovers on a mysterious blue daisy. Her wings change into the color of the flower. A butterfly flies away into the blue sky.

Music is from my favorite movie, Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away.
