Sumi Feather Pattern

I've been obsessed with painting feathers in sumi ink lately. So I thought they could make a great pattern together.

Here's a small sampling of them:

I brought them all into photoshop and started playing with them. It took some time to find a pleasing pattern. Below you can see the transition from the first to the final pattern.

Then I put it in a few monochromatic (because I'm a sucker for monocramatic patterns) colorways.

I uploaded the dark blue one to Society6 and thought I would show you what it would look like on a few bags.

Please, let me know what you think and if you have any ideas on what I can improve. Thanks!
