RWT Results Feature #5 - Sparkly Norwegian

An oldie but goodie, wings made for a stage production in Norway, for their use of my tutorial I was even credited in the tiny print at the end of their program, kyaaa! X3

The fabric is sparkly and they used colored fabric for the insides & all silver for the backing, a VERY neat effect. Made their own improvements as well, that I’ll be sharing more specifically at a later date…

Video of said wings in motion (but a bit earlier in the development, so may differ slightly from these pictures of the final result) :D

Corvid Paper Template finished: 15-20 hrs (waaay longer than I anticipated)

Not meant to be pretty, but will buy clear tape sooner next time. ^^; These are based on my original raven wings that I sent off to Sweden last November & are for a potential customer. :D

These function just like my fully-fledged fabric feathers, but are obviously lighter and more fragile since they are paper, posterboard, and small bits of wire hardware. They also tend to stick together more, but still make a quicker/cheaper result if one wanted to substitute these materials in my tutorial. ;)

So for post #101, I give you - swan wing concept! :D
8+ hours in Photoshop (gosh I’m slow…)

Each of the 25 feathers has been shaped and measured so if I wanted I could import them into Illustrator, arrange them flat, and print them to scale.

Should make my pattern-making MUCH easier. :3

I can also fiddle with the silhouette easier here, but I’m liking the look so far - will see if I can imitate how it looks when bent as well…
