Hello! This was probably the most challenging projects undertaken so far.
The feather went through all the process of sculpting, and retopo - this was by far the hardest part. some parts I have nailed, other parts not so much.
For the body I have used a different approach, drawing directly the patterns, then converting them into normals.
Fun fact I wasn’t able to color the red bits as intended with Quixel Mixer, so I took out the texture and colored them separately in Photoshop.
Time working on this about 40 hours T_T
