Finished yay! I did think about darkening some areas more, but I decided I like this the way it is now. Could always darken it later a few months down the line if I see it again and think it does need to be darker.
Close up of a floofy light feather. It can be hard sometimes to etch these types of feathers if they are surrounded by dark areas but thankfully only one side of this area is dark.
Getting closer to being able to film tutorials on making one of these plates. Just need to clear some more space for the tripod and then I can start filming. Just going to be a small plate since it would probably take way too long to make a video for one this size.
