Realistic Wing - UPDATE 01 by Sunnybrook1 Realistic Wing - UPDATE 01 by Sunnybrook1
Here's my test wing w/cover feather patterns (currently poster-board, to be replaced with fabric :faint: ) and a spare piece of faux fur to hide where my arm would be. Not sure if I like the results - the fur is off-white, so maybe that's what's bugging me.

Any thoughts on a different material that will cover my arm but still give the fuzzy/smooth wing-top impression? I do not relish the thought of cutting out dozens of tiny fabric feathers & sewing them to a sleeve.

Maybe shorter-hair fur w/painted on details?

Hmmmm.....decisions, decisions...

how much would one cost?

Lol, just one wing? :D Less than two :p but seriously, materials aside these take about $600-$800 of time/effort to complete, so I'm still debating over how to open commissions for these. :/

Amazing job so far. As for the cover issue, I'm not an expert, but what about getting a longer pile fur and shaping it with scissors to look like a few layers of feathers? I saw another deviant on here do the same to make 'scales' on the fur of a stuffed animal, and the result might be worth the work.

*BELATED REPLY* :paranoid:
I have seen a few examples of this from other costumes and don't like how it clashes with my layered feathers, short of shaving it down really short and styling it with something somewhat permanent I don't know how to keep it bird-feather-smooth & not all fluffed & furry-like (good in most situations, bad in this one)...

This is so awesome. I'm going to try it when I'm done with my current projects, I think.

My God! These are fantastic! if you ever go to taking on commissions, sign me up! I would like to fund you to make me a set of wings; painted or unpainted for a gryphon project I will have going in the next 6 months to a year.
I can supply a longer pile fur or real goose/turkey feathers for the sleeve.
