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!
