A client of mine wanted me to create an animated butterfly in Flash for her site to mark the birth of her granddaughter.
"I want it to be pretty, but I dont want it to be too cute and feminine," she said. "I want it to be sort of mysterious and magical."
I created the aforementioned animation, and my client was delighted. And then she said, "Oh! Can you put more pink in her wings? And how about a little heart for her lips? And long, fluttering eyelashes! Oh, that would be so CUTE!"
