So: I took the starting point of the green highlander from the other day and just exchanged the green part with blue materials. I don’t know if something like a blue highlander exists, but this was a experiment to see how the colors comes together with blue instead of green ( will try different colors in the near future )

The fly itself came out quite good but this is a massive piece of fly! I will try to cut it down to half the size and keep the colors and general design because I do think that the blue/red combination will work very well
