TUTORIAL: Wings for Dragons by SammyTorres TUTORIAL: Wings for Dragons by SammyTorres
Here it is!
My tutorial on how to draw wings for dragons!
If there's anything I didn't bring up or if anything was incorrect please write it in the comments so everyone knows :D

As you might have noticed I used a lot of images that I could find on Google. I do NOT own any of these images and I'm sorry that I can't credit them :(

Here's some links that I found most useful:

If you want more dragon artwork you can go to my group - DCP-Dragoncyclopedia and add it to your DeviantWATCH -->:icondcp-dragoncyclopedia:
I'll certainly post all my dragon related artwork there as well as other highly experienced artists like:

:iconshinerai:
...and many more!


Hope to see you there (^_^)

I like how you added in the differences between wing shapes!! Almost no other tutorials even bothered listing them off at all, and I think it is very important to learn about them. I love that you took it a step further and listed bat wing shapes besides each bird wing too!!

This is great Sammy!! I love the details 0-0 so many people draw mop-wings on their dragons XD I'm hoping to do a similar thing with 'common mistakes' as so many people draw horrible wing anatomy x-x love this though <3

Very informative, thanks ^_^ I had an amazing dream the other night about people with bat/dragon wings and have been dying to draw something like it but had no idea where to even begin. Can't wait to put pencil to paper with the cool tutorials and photos I've found and hopefully get something fairly believable done rather than my first attempts at terribleness XD

In all seriousness, this is by far the most informative tutorial on wings I've seen. Getting an idea of how to draw the wings from the different angles and in motion is far more beneficial then knowing which type of feathers are found where ;)
Thank you! If I could fave multiple times, I would!

>w< DA has a lot of tutorials, but not all of them are this helpfull and true when it comes to anatomy. You might whant to change the category of this tutorial to Ressources and Stock images -> Tutorials, Instead of putting it in the digital art section so more people will get help ^^
