This is a tutorial made to help the beginning artist better understand how wings function as they close. =]

This one was done in photoshop, but it's pretty much the same concept with traditional media. Just remember to draw lightly!

Let me know if anything is confusing at all, or if there's something that you think can be improved on to help better understand the process. (Aside from the fact that it's not 100% accurate...I know that. And go-go typo lol).

Hope you guys find this useful! =]


DISCLAIMER:
-I am in no way an expert on wing anatomy.
-This is artist reference for beginners as a -basic- explanation for better understanding wing anatomy.
- The drawings that appear in this tutorial are not 100% accurate.
-This is only to be used in conjunction with other wing guides to help better understand drawing wings for the beginner.
-There are many great books and tutorials out there, if you'd like to learn true wing anatomy pick up a book such as "artist's reference guide to birds".

This is super helpful. Whenever I try to draw feathered wings they would never come out right because I didn't really know how they should look. Thank you for this :D

Hello! I read that you don't want this to be reposted, but it's alright to link it? I was wondering if it would be alright for me to post it to my Tumblr? It of course would have credit listed and a click back link to here! If not, that's perfectly understandable :)

Tumblr is OK if you set a click-through link back to here.
