I'm also trying to model a bird with realistic-looking feathers.

I've tried to use the above tutorial, but it's about five years old, and the instructions with it don't seem to conform to Blender's newer interface, so I can't figure out how to make it work. Does anyone know of a tutorial, or could someone make a tutorial that demonstrates how to make feathers with Blender's updated particle system, i.e. with version 2.46?

Thanks!

I'd like to learn how to model a feather as well as how to cover a bird in feathers in a way that looks realistic. I'm working with a duck model, and using the particle system, I've successfully covered the duck with something that remotely resembles feathers, but the end result makes the duck look like it's covered in wool.

Thanks

Ya a bit, but my brother has been updating the site on and off.

If anyone is curious, the site is http://thesimpler.net/

so you can request a tutorial, and the entire site will be based a round tags. currently, you cant make tags, i currently have Blender, Particles, and Gimp as tags that would be useful to you guys
