Creating A Digital Feather

I've had several requests as to how I create the feathers for my wings, thus this tutorial is born, I hope that you find it useful and easy to follow.

I created the feather shown in this image in photoshop CS5.

This feather can be created using either a mouse or a tablet, though it may take longer to create using a mouse than using a tablet.

Note: This is not supposed to look like a real bird feather.

Please let me know how this works for you.

Please fave!



Created with a feather like this one...
