Flight Study: Flight Motion

Two sketches of the same pegasus in flight, with different wing positions

While looking for reference pictures of birds’ flight motion, I came across some studies by Etienne Jules Marey, in particular his “Motion study of gull’s flight” (second to last picture in the article). For these sketches, I’ve tried to transfer two of the mid-flight poses to my pegasus model. By the way, she should really should get a name and cutie mark some time. 😀
