Nice! I agree about the foot placement. The flower seems to sway rather unnaturally at the beginning, against the wind.

Cool stuff!

Great start... yes the foot looks like it glides a bit just clamp the keys of the foot in the graph editor.

thanks guys! great c+c, the foot does slide too much, I was trying to make it look like it was squishing the butterfly like a guy would put out a ciggarete. but as I look back on it, it just looks like he is moon walking.

I like the idea about the butterfly coming back to life - or maybe a mad scientist brings him back to life. Franken-butter stein-Fly, or something. And then BFly gets its revenge Muwahaha
