Wings, wings, wings have been my life lately.  I don't mind though, because I think they're coming out pretty good.  Here's the latest progress:

Everything finally cut out: 

Trial paint.  This is the hard part.  I want them to be black, like a raven's, but I also want them to be visiable in the dark... hmmmm.  So, I painted them as dark gray as I could and painted the recessed parts black.  Didn't really look all that different and I was afraid to go any lighter with the gray...

Then I tried some highlighting.  The top three came out a lot lighter than I liked, but the bottom three are just about right, so I think that's the method that I'm going to go with.

And here is something for you to laugh at. ;) I wanted to show the size of the wings, but I was making a really goofy face in this picture, so I edited it a little ;)  I'm 5'7.  
So there we have it so far.  I'm still working.  Lots to be done and only 99 days to do it.  I can't believe we're in the double digits already :)

Happy Haunting everyone!!!


  1. Nice work. It's coming along-really looking forward the seeing the finished Raven.

  2. Nice job! I got a laugh out of the last picture. At first glance, you had me fooled. Then I noticed that there's a rectangle around your bird skull. :)

  3. the wings are coming along nicely ...will do a couple of "special" posts on its completion....and I have presented you with a "Leibster Award... See My Blog Tomorrow for details....And keep up the Great Posts,,, Your "fiend" the Doctor...
