That sounds great. Wings designed for the purpose will be bound to have fewer things that have to be worked around.
In the meantime, here are some more horsefeathers. The Malaik wings, scaled and parented. I had to turn off the long auxilary featherssince they are long enough to extend the length of the horse body, and spread enough that there’s no way to avoid intersecting.
No postwork in this, if I were to use it for anything I’d have to do some post to mask the junction of wings and horse. There may be a section of feathers that could be turned off to make the join easier, but I didn’t go hunting it. I’m not sure of the position, not being an anatomist, but the wings seem to be above the shoulders anyway.
Scaled up to 140% and then boosted another 114% in the x-axis to avoid having to go turn one off and load another set.
