Just Adorable

I was recently commissioned to make a pair of angel wings based on a specific character design. These were a little more tricky to create but at the same time very fun. In the process of making these wings I learned just how easy it is to dye turkey feathers (provided the color intended is pretty straight forward)

En lien of this project I've decided that its about time I learned how to airbrush. Then I'll be able to create all sorts of fun designs and color palettes.


  1. this is completely off-topic for the first post listed, but i also saw your crow-wing based designs and i think it's actually spectacular that you're this painstaking and authentic in your artwork--i wonder what a wing shape based on that of a larger bird--like a hawk or falcon--would look like? i am writing about winged things right now so i have birds on the brain!

  2. Hahah, thank you for the compliments and for also having a love for the details. I nearly had the opportunity to make a pair of hawk wings but the client backed out. Unfortunately I don't have the time to make wings on such a grand scale just for my own enjoyment. Lately I've been drifting more and more into fantasy designs. I start with what I see and learn the rules, then I'm able to bend and break them and still turn out a cohesive piece. (ie: believable proportions with fantastical structure and layout)
