Somehow nature decreed that human beings are born without wings and can fly only with the help of various technical devices.
Probably, this can explain the interest of many artists and illustrators to the image of the wings.
Wings are different in form and structure, but almost all of them can be divided into three large groups - a bird, an insect wing, and the wing of a bat.
Before the draw, learn the anatomy of the wing. If you draw a bird's wing, consider carefully the structure of the bird skeleton. It is similar to all the birds - small or large, will change the proportions. The outlines of a predetermined length of the wing feathers, small feathers cover the pen top.
To draw a wing of a bird, first mark theskeleton line. Then, one by one, start painting layers of feathers, from the shortest to the longest. Then work through the fine details - draw a groove on the feathers, feathers little extra that will add realism wing.
If you draw a bat's wing, herestart with the structure. Bats, like humans, are mammals, so the structure of their wings is something vaguely resemble a human hand.
Draw the base of the wing to the shoulder joint tofingertips. Give her a form that will take wing later. Incidentally, unlike the human, bat fingers never be completely straightened.
According to the planned lines joints draw membranous wings. Add toes and claw a little volume and shadows.
The ability to draw a wing will help you learn how to draw, for example, dragon wings.
To draw a butterfly wing or any otherinsect, check out some photos from these wings. You will notice that these wings have many veins and like the leaf of a plant, if you look through it to light. Draw the general shape of the wing, split a pair of guide lines and thin lines, draw veins.
If you draw a butterfly, add on a wingpatterns and designs, and then paint the bright colors. Also, if you draw the butterfly wing close-up, do not forget to draw the scales, which is covered with a wing.
