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 like your study of wings. Often times people stick wings on the characters they draw or paint without consideration for how it looks ad function so they forget to add the skeletal adjustments to the body and how this would affect the person when they walked. Or how the wings  would actually move...

Thank you for the comprehensive analysis.

Very detailed and creative! Sir/Ma'am, I salute you. I would love to see more from you and please don't stop! :D By the way, can you draw something like this but on webbed wings. I would love you even more if you did :D oh yeah, screw what scientist and wing-major have to say. science is not always right and I still believe that humans would be capable of flight when they have wings. now, how do I favourite this? I'm new to deviant art so I don't really know much :L
