STEP 1. First, you must understand the basics of a bird wing. Here lays a diagram of a typical wing expanded. 1. Are the primaries of a wing. 2. Are the secondaries of the wing. It usually morphs it's height and length from the primaries in a harmonic pattern (like shown).   STEP 2. 1. (rounded feather) Smaller feathers that scatter the body of feathered creatures, are more commonly round, typically because of the role they play to enable a correct flight process. The closer they reach to the base of the body, the smaller they get. They also start small as tiny furs near the head and gradually morph larger towards the core of the body. 2. split ends in the feather give it a more realistic appearance. 3. etched scratches in the feather indicate the tiny individual furs that create the feather. Add a few of these to make it realistic.   STEP 3. When bird semi folds it's wings, there are some key points to focus on. The head of the wing becomes more oval-ish - closer to the body. 1. the width between the primaries and secondaries create a blunt space. The closer the primaries, the closer it'll be to the body.   STEP 4. Here are a few views of wings. Take a full hour and study on feathered wing references.   STEP 5. First, start off with two lines that create the base of the feathers. In this case, you're exercising your skills for drawing feathers.   STEP 6. Next, shape the feathers around the base line. You have freedom to create any shaped feather, depending on what creature you're drawing feathers for.   STEP 7. Lastly, finalize some details that you can decorate your wing with. Remember, the more detail, the increase in realism.   STEP 8. This is typically the line art your feathers should resemble. Always keep in mind to keep practicing and to research what you draw. Without knowledge on what you're drawing, you'll prone to falling in a pit of mistakes. All there is to say is, good luck and have fun! Thanks for viewing!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
