WIP - Realistic Wings by Sunnybrook1 WIP - Realistic Wings by Sunnybrook1
Well, here's what I've been working on-and-off for the last few months - cool, eh? I'm aiming for wings that will fold & function (visually, anyways) just like real birds wings. Each feather is made out of straightened hanger-wire with two pieces of fabric painted back-to-back over it (think fabric sandwich, with the wire on the inside).

I've added more secondary cover-feathers since these shots, I'm replacing the circulation-cutting arm brace with a glove, and I still have to add the arm-hiding fabric/feather combo, but I'm already excited about how these look~

Want to make your own? Check out my budding tutorial!

Sorry Clarenda, but I'd need to get permission (and funds) from your parental figure/guardian first for something like that. ^^;

I'm glad yo like it though, and in case you do get them, just click HERE and then the [Note la Send a Note]  button on the top right of the page to leave me a private message~ :)

What the... holy hella f*ck.

Firstly, that's f*ckin cool, like the coolest thing freeking ever. Secondly, IS THAT YOU??? YOU LOOK LIKE ME. OR I LOOK LIKE YOU.  I'm like sitting here genuinely shocked because our faces are a little different but we're like the same size with the same hair - like literally the same hair - color, frizzyness when in a braid, length of braid, and even where we part it - and ok not quite similar faces but I'm still extremely confused by this o.o
