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!

The wings look amazing. How long of a process is it?

Depends, but I've estimated about 40-50 hours of work - it takes longer than that in reality since there's waiting time for the feathers/paint to dry & such. FOREVER WAITING
