Wing Studies

As you can see, I’m trying to figure out how to draw wings. Sadly, there are no real pegasi to study, so I’m looking at the next best thing: birds. The most useful resources I’ve found until now are:

The video is probably the most useful, because the bones and their relationship with the feather sections are shown in different poses and animated movements. The most important things I’ve learned so far are the rough bone structure and that there’s a section of feathers for each bone section. I’ve marked those in the sketch above.

Appropriate music for the topic: “On Pegasus Wings” by Dreamsong. 😉
