Tutorial: Drawing Bird Wings by Tiamate Tutorial: Drawing Bird Wings by Tiamate
I know this topic is difficult for some people. For me, using this method has made it super easy! These aren't perfectly realistic wings by the way. I just find that they have a really good quick/quality ratio, that works fine for me when drawing angels or beasts or random birds.
If you're looking for really anatomically precise wings, check out these 2 tutorials: [link] & [link] they just take longer.

So I'm sharing /o/. :iconfabulousplz:

EDIT: Because some found this confusing, I'm explaining better what I mean by top/under, inside/outside:
"under-side" = stomach-side
"top-side" = back-side
"Inside" = closer to the body of the bird
"Outside" = closer to the edge of the wing = further from the body.




Beware randomly shaped birds in this tutorial and please note that if you want to make fantastically-shaped wings, you can! The main thing to remember here is the structure.

Please tell me if you find this useful, and don't hesitate to share your drawings if you use it, I'd love to see them!

This is literally THE MOST useful bird wing tutorial out there. The others - while they do a great job of teaching you how to use nature as guidance - don't make it as simple and as easy to catch on to as this.

I've looked at a lot of wing references but this by far is one of the best and also easiest way.

Thanks for making!
