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 )

I think I already commented here somewhere already, but what the heck. For some reason, winged people make the Dragon Roost Island theme from LoZ Wind Waker pop into my head. Does anyone else have a similar thing happen to them when you think of that kind of thing?

This is really helpful! I love to draw winged characters, and was thinking about writing a story involving some. (Then again, I have a lot of stories in progress.) This will also be pretty useful reference for drawing Kid Icarus characters. Thanks for making this! :D

Waoh! I was searching for something like this because I read an scientific article that explains why we can't fly with a pair of wings. Our anatomy is not for this, what a disgrace :(
But in fantasy all is possible! :D

This is really good. I'm definitely going to need to hang on to this. 
Just a though, wings would require a completely separate set of shoulder blades and collarbones, and maybe a modified sternum, don't you think?

Actually, for a human to be capable of flight, the wings would have to be at least 40 feet long. But that would look weird. Who needs size calculations when you have BIRD PEOPLE!

I've been toying with an avian character of mine as well, for years in fact, and still, the placement and anatomy of the musculature surrounding his wings always confounds me.  I've toyed with the idea of a second set of Pectoralis Major as well; it makes sense, no?
This definitely helped cement some concepts in my mind, thank you much for sharing!

Hey, your drawings are awesome and helpful, but I was wondering how do you know what size the wings suppose to be. Like do you calculate it somehow or just draw and see if it fits?

i really like how you acknowledged that the anatomy was going to be a little messed up and explained some ways to fix it. the extra pectoral muscle was a definite necessary thing! thank you for this
