Hi Friends

I have a beautiful vector monarch butterfly example and so excited to teach you the technique witch I used to create it in this example, I have fully described every step to learn easily and used different color to make it beautiful butterfly so follow this example without loosing any movement.

First of all we need a new document with appropriate size, I have taken (Width ="399", Height="399"). Select Pen Tool (P key)  and draw some anchor point to make a shape that should be look like butterfly wing.

Select Ellipse Tool (L key) and draw a little circle with "White" fill color then drag and drop in the Symbol Panel (Ctrl + Alt + F11). A window comes on the screen and you have to make adjustment with any name as done here.

Now apply same upper step to make white spot again but make sure the circle size should be increased. You can also do it manually, select Ellipse Tool (L key) and draw some white colored circle as below.

Now you have to draw another shape inside the wing to make it attractive, select Pen Tool (P key) and make some anchor point with selected "#F77D1E" fill color, you can take any color as you like but make sure that should be light than black.

In this step you have to make parts of the shape, select Pen Tool (P key) and draw some line on the shape with only stroke Black color. Select all the line to make them group by pressing (Ctrl + G) then select shape with hold Shift key and click on the "Divide" option in the Pathfinder Panel to make parts.

Now you have separate parts of the shape and you have to apply inner glow in them. Select one part and follow this path (Effect menu > Stylize > Inner Glow) and apply "#C15810" color with different settings, apply same effect in the rest parts as done below picture.
