I've been wasting a lot of time trying to draw plumes effectively. I tried doing a feather, drawing it on both sides of the paper, Cutting round the top of the feather, with tape, sticking some thread so I can fold it over to see what really happens.
Pulled over to the left
Pulled over straight down
Pulled over to the right.
And just drawn with what 'felt' right.
I'm going round in circles over this. It should be so simple but these things never are.....
