So I've bit the bullet and begun the long process - a lot of work it will be, but I'm already happier with the progress I've made on part 1.
Still, it's more difficult to accomplish this sort of thing alone, and I'd love to hear any opinions or ideas about how the tutorial or this site can be improved. Should I release some of my back-burner wing ideas, put up a poll, and build on stream the design that gets the most votes or shares? Should I implement a forum or message board of some kind here? I haven't seen the need, since most people chat about my wings on their preferred art, costuming, or social media sites already.
I'm pretty open to new ideas and possibilities right now, so if you have one you wish to share please feel free to do so~
