Mockingjay Wings - Concept to Design
So Lalaithiel (https://www.deviantart.com/lalaithiel) is looking to make some Mockingjay movie style wings and asked for help sizing them properly. Now, Mockingjays are a fictional bird species, but have similar properties to actual birds, so its tricky but doable. This journal should document my process from concept to design, hopefully it'll help anyone else out there with questions about Part 1. References - Mockingjay's are a hybrid between the fictional Jabberjays & actual Mockingbirds, so starting there: +  =  ? Not bad, on the book cover art the wings are a little longer/thinner than an actual mockingbird, so they have a few more feathers to them, but they seem t

I am sort of a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to art - drawing, vectors, animation, costume and wing-making, 3D modeling - whatever medium best serves me, I use.

All comments whose contents reflect a single thankful thought will be read, appreciated, and hidden - I am a bit OCD about this so it's for my own sanity. Thank you.

9 years later and still commenting on your super awesome wing tutorial. . .
Since I haven't gotten through the whole thing, how much is the materials vs. commission?
I have a year to build these so there is that too... Honestly was hoping to wear it with my ravenous costume I bought this year www.amazon.com/Zagone-Studios-…

so a super nice pair of black wings would make my costume even scarier

Time really flies, huh? :floating:

And I haven't sat down & made a full set of wings in a while either, so things are probably different than I remember. My last set was around 3 years ago, materials $300+ and time spent 45-50 hours (cause I work meticulous & slow, I guess).

I'm not doing commissions right now, if that's what you were asking, though I know a few folks who make/sell wings, maybe I should make a page to list them on for folks who are considering the same...

 if you have time and it is possible a list like that would be fantastic

Thanks again

I saw the $300 price first and was like HOLY $HIT....
then it dawned on me that I just spent over $200 on this costume sta.sh/010sqgjv056m
So $300 for materials isn't bad for wings that look as good as you make them
I was thinking that adding wings would make mine too so much freakier

I unfortunately had to buy everything separate
MASK 75
Dragon feet 40
Hairy monster hands 40
Black death robe 80

then about 2 hours hand coloring the green dragon feet silver (they really resemble bird feet)
plus I need to make what I bought for a robe look similar to that picture

I'm sure ill have a few questions to ask once I start my wings, hopefully you will be around to answer
