Realistic Wing - Update 02 by Sunnybrook1 Realistic Wing - Update 02 by Sunnybrook1
Since I promised to finish her wings first, here's what we've been working on for the last 3 days (on & off, anyways - there was a Rodeo somewhere in there...).

Primary/Secondary feathers & harness only - cover-feathers are on the way. Her gloves are recycled band gloves, and have worked well so far~

Questions are welcome~ :D

And sort of - paint is used as the "glue" that keeps the fabric together - the whole process is detailed here :pointr: fav.me/d2wi2xh

Glad you like - if you're interested in commissioning a pair from me, shoot me a note. I should be opening in the next few months & there's already a list forming...:floating:

Hmmm...maybe. I dont really have the money right now, but if they're not too pricey I might think about it. =3

Not sure, is a couple hundred dollars qualify as "too pricey"?

A couple hundred to be honest is rather cheap. If I ever do an avian and you are still doing wing commissions, I'm certainly going to be contacting you for the job <3

Well, the materials all add up to between $80 - $100, but they're so time-intensive...buying the materials is the easy part! ^^; Ah well, we gotta do what we gotta do~

I just had an idea, and by no means am I telling you what to do or anything like that, I just want to help :)
Would it be better if you used arm-length gloves and sewed the elastic to it? Then there wouldn't be as much of a gap between the arm and the feathers as I noticed in other updates. Even with the arm coverings, in my opinion, they still kind of look funny (but still amazingly awesome too! :))
Just a thought, I have no idea if it would work, though I might try it when I find time to make my own pair :D

:iconbast-incarnation:
Bast-Incarnation Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2011
Hmmm... thats a great idea actually. Sounds a ton easier too. ;)
Im sure there would be a few different ways to make these. Whichever way works best for you I guess. :)

:icondoganie:
doganie Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It would definitely change how they worked, and you would have to make sure the sleeve didn't bunch up and stuff, but it would make it a lot easier to make the feathers look like they are part of the arm. I would experiment, but I'm not sure I have the time ;)

:iconbast-incarnation:
Bast-Incarnation Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011
lmao ya... me either.
But I would think just attaching some wings to an armband and then making like a chris cross on your back so you dont have to attach strings to your pants. I dunno... Im just thinking out-loud. lol

Ooh, I love ideas~

And the reason for the elastic is to keep the secondary feathers spaced correctly when opening/closing the wings. Flight feathers (usually) connect into a birds bone, but are still able to flex to some degree. I haven't figured out a way to imitate that on an arm/sleeve contraption, but until I do my current set up works alright.

Thanks for the input! :thanks:

I can't wait for the next tutorial, I'm really excited to see how it turns out :)

Would you be wiling to custom make a pair similar to these? I wear a Seahawks game day outfit that would look amazing if I could get these wings in a bright green and blue. How much would you want to make them? Or could you send me the list of supplies I will need, or more importantly where to find the supplies please.

Sunnybrook1 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ah, I'm still in the process of adding it all up, but they use up many yards of fabric, heavy-gauge wire, LOTS of alligator clips, elastic, yards of harness-straps, 3-4 feet of latex tubing......gah, just check my tutorials for a complete-ish list (I'll have to compile an overall list when I finish...:plotting: ) and go window-shopping for prices~ ^^;
