Tired of seeing my old journal up on my front page, decided to put something else there in the meantime.
It has taken a while to get where I am now, but I seem to FINALLY be in the right place to finally tackle the project I have avoiding - the final(ish) part in my Realistic Wing Tutorial set, THE ARM-COVER.
While I busted out a cool-looking one a while ago I am not really satisfied with it. However it has worked well for some (pictures/links to come!) so rather than leave everyone scratching their heads - or pulling out shanks of hair, depends on your level of frustration - it behooves me to at least illustrate how I came up with the preview I posted [link]
. Tentative date for completion is May/Mid-June, so keep an eye out for updates.
After that (dare I dream of the day AFTER this accomplishment? I'm getting ahead of myself...FOCUS) I will throw together a page that will use to host any new things like alternate materials/methods used for the tutorials that I haven't gotten around to updating in them directly yet. EXAMPLE: In Part 4 - Assembly, 1/2 inch ribbon folded in half WORKS AMAZING as it is thin yet strong, and doesn't fray or rip like the braided cord would.
I will also include (with their permission) the results of others who have used some part of this tutorial to build their own wings, believe me there are some cool & amazing creations! This will be my favorite part of all, the sharing.
Wish me luck! ~Sunnybrook1
PS - Only now realized this is the first "new" journal in over a year, the previous one I'd just update/edit instead of make new. Kind of...strange.
