Thoughts on Wings by Uzlo Thoughts on Wings by Uzlo
So, I did a little wing thing (Or, I did this a long time ago but never bothered to upload it). I'm no wing-major, but I thought it was funny to do and that perhaps someone would appreciate it considering how effing difficult it is to draw wings...

So, here's to all of you who care! : D

Mattias, the main model of this little tutorial-thing, is mine. His wings aren't that rainbow-ish (They look like the orange-brownish plumage one of the miniature wingpairs). It's for the sake of clarity!

Enjoy! Or something.

Edit: D....DD? ;___; *tears of Joy* Thank yoooou!

And since everyone ask me, all the time: No, I have not read Maximum ride.

Thoughts on Wings by *AuroraCarina-chan is almost an anatomy class about fantastic winged creatures. Every detail is very well explained and put in a way that is easy to understand. ( Suggested by Raulzito2112 and Featured by shelldevil )

Nice tutorial, but don't you think the wings look way too big compared to the human in some pictures?

The wings would have to be big in order to support the weight of your body.

Anatomically speaking, if a human were to have wings, they would need to be quite big. Birds may go with ones that are roughly the size of their torsos, but they have honey-comb skeletons, no extra limbs, less mass, and small statures.

Then add in the idea of different types of wings; speed, power, cruising, ect.

But, aesthetically speaking, that's just how this particular artist enjoys to draw their wings~ It shouldn't influence you on how you work, it just shows you a way to make your own~:heart:

Hope this helps some

Hmm. What would the extra chest muscles look like on women do you think?

Resa already has somewhat unique wing anatomy to account for her being able to hide them under a baggy coat, and she is wiry in general but...
How do I ... boobs hang from the pectoral muscle so how would that work?

I think I'm gonna need a few minutes to recover from all this education...
