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:

Hope to see you there (^_^)

I'm really sorry but I can't promise to look at them right now since I'm busy with other projects ;;n;;
I looked at your gallery real quick and it's amazing how colorful everything is and I really like your style! It's also difficult for me to critique you drawing since most of them are very stylized. I just think you should keep going and experiment when you feel like it ^^ ask your watchers to give you feedback or ask in the description :> best of luck, hun!

are the dragon wings always behind the front limps?
Reply
:iconsammytorres:
SammyTorres Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2015  Professional Filmographer
It's really up to you :) most dragon artists draw wings behind the front limbs but if you have a concept of placing the wings upfront just do that ^^ Something that's unpopular though it to place the wings on the frontlegs' scapula. No matter the construction of the skeleton, the wings should be independent from other limbs of the skeleton. :) Hope this helps!

Reh-Star Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh! So it could be placed everywhere but the importent thing is it isn't conecctet to another limb? do i get this right?

Useful tutorial, thanks for the reference!

I spotted a problem on the second to last white panel though. The lower arm being extremely long, one would expect the wing to jut out much more than on the drawing on the right when folded.

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
