There are alternatives, you know.

a) You use an alpha that has a bunch of feathers instead of the single one which should cover a bigger area.

b) You can create a black and white texture, convert it into a mask then inflate or just sculpt over your mesh to give you your feathers en masse. Use projection master so you can create lots of feathers at once in Photoshop.

c) Same as above but you use this method to create your initial texture:

Yes, it is one of my tutorials and, yes, it is blatant self-promotion

Hope this helps.

PS: Also, you don't have to do the whole body at once using techniques B and C. You can do it in chunks. And if you are not happy with the resolution, you can still get a decent sub-feather base using techniques B and C. Either way, you should still save yourself some time.

I was watching a documentary last night called "Birds of the Gods" and I think I'm going to go with these colors.

Nice God I like the feathers in the wings a lot.

Some posing would help a lot to your model's appeal.
