And it looks amazing. It was estimated to take two hours but only took an hour and a half. I’ll tell you right now–there were three main parts of it that hurt more than I thought I was going to be able to bare.
The tiny birds that are just coming off the feather were brutal. They are tiny and plentiful.
Then there’s the tip of the feather. Again, the detail is amazing but it’s tiny and close to my spine.
Lastly, the down section just before the quill point. Right on my spine. Not near any of my archer muscles. Flat out-agonizing.
And in a few days, when it heals, I will be very happy that I had these details because it looks absolutely gorgeous. But right now, since it kinda burns–owwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
