Stamp Carving.

 Using the pencil sketches as a guide I carved the designs that you can see above and below. Because of the very fine markings I couldn't, or at least I personally would find it too hard, to make the moth white with black markings as I did with the computer images. I carved two sizes of each design, as the finished multiple image needs to be very large to fit on paper that measures 50 cm x 70 cm.
Starting at the top left the carving is modified to include more fine markings and to refine the antennae a bit. A little bit of colour is fun to add.
