The climactic return of the butterflies. Ben Eisenstat, an illustrator himself, was the model. Ben is the father of my SJSU colleague, Bunny Carter.
When we we're shooting the reference, I explained to Ben what was happening in the story, got ready to shoot, and as soon as I said okay, he took the most perfect pose I ever could have hoped for!
That's the nice thing about using another illustrator as a model: they know what you're looking for!
