    You would be better off finding a hand and butterfly pattern and designing your own version. Images do not translate very well into patterns.

    Watch this tutorial and pay attention to the first 3 minutes of Joe's discussion on the subject.

    I posed a 3d hand I had as closely as I could and made a pattern from it but may be too flat.

    I do not have any butterfly patterns. I tried from the image but it is not very good.

    It will be a lot easier to use the image as a reference and build your own version.

    Have you thought of making it into a lithophane?? I tried it and got very pleasing results.
