This project is an evolution of techniques and turned into a complete animal that took over my life in the summer of 2013. Thus, I decided to give this piece a biological genus and species name; quad- means four, -ptera means wing, and scintillus means sparkling. This is by far the most difficult project I have ever developed, and the longest direction set as well!
