In my feedback I was advised to rescale the machine in order to find the right proportion between the feathers and the mechanism. In response to that I decided to work more on the feathers.
After looking at different kinds of fan I decided to add more feathers to the upper part to make it look bigger without rescaling the mechanism.
Subsequently I realized the first version of the hero prop looked quite boring and bald just as though the feathers had been taken from a very old and sad peacock.
Here is the result of my further development of the fan:
I am not quite sure which one I prefer. Any feedback would be appreciated :)
