WIP - Realistic Wings by Sunnybrook1 WIP - Realistic Wings by Sunnybrook1

Well, this has sort of become the splash page for the rest of my tutorial, links are below! :D


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've replaced the circulation-cutting arm brace with a glove, and I still have to add the arm-hiding fabric/feather combo, but I'm really excited about how these look~

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

These are fantastic! I understand you're not selling them at the moment, but I was using these for a conceptual design project for school that I need to budget out, and I was wondering if you had a rough estimate on what you would charge to make them? Or at least how many hours they take to make?

Hi, I would like to know if you sell these set of wings. I would be highly interested in buying these or do you know where I can buy these? 

Thanks, 

John

Oh no :( thank you for replying though. Please let me know if you do reconsider. By the way, how many hours do you think it would take a not so crafty person to make these?

I saw this a couple months back before i had a deviant art. I was looking for moving wing tutorials for my humming bird costume I'm going to make for Halloween. These are so beautiful and look so natural with the fold and then fully extended. Now that i have an account I thought id say thanks for the awesome tutorials and I'll definitely post a picture of my wings if i make them. Awesome work!
