I agree, feathers are a bitch.
Oh dear---is that perhaps Twilight's feather?
Dude! The shading and detail on the feather is amazing! For a second, I thought it was a photo.
is that a alicorn Twilight feather? < w >
Yes they can, but if you get it done right, or at least make it look right, then huzzah!
This needs more views. Looks awesome.
Oooh, very cool!
