I love these wings!! If you don't mind me popping in out of the random dA void and asking, where did you buy your feathers? I'm needing a good place to get some for a wing project I've been toying with for some time. (not fully peacock...but sort of crow/faerie combination...mostly feathered with a bit of cellophane here and there.)
Bah! I digress. These are beautifully put together!
The base of the wings was a panel of bent aluminum. Glued the feathers to the flaps and then covered the center with the same leather of the top so that it wouldn't stand out. Because of the aluminum, they flap slightly when I move my shoulders.
