Lepidoptera - Silk Moth Alien Creature Bust

'Lepidoptera' is a concept creature bust I created having been inspired by the markings and textures of silk moths. I wanted to create a humanoid female, that mixed both human and moth/butterfly-like features. 

She was sculpted in wed clay, moulded in fibreglass and cast out in TinSil with a J-Foam centre. I painted her with silicone paints, made the resin eyes and fabricated her detachable moth antennae from pampas grass and emu feathers.
