Drawing anime and manga figures is a concept that many artists on this site love doing. That is why I wanted to make another cool tutorial that is based on the very thing that some of us love to create, and that is anime wings. You will learn "how to draw anime wings", step by step and with this tutorial you will get some pretty cool helpful tip steps to make drawing anime wings a whole lot easier. The character or figure I made for this tutorial is an anime fallen angel, and I think he came out pretty darn good. This is one of my favorite drawings that I have made in a long time, and I can't wait to submit the video lesson for it. The way that the angel is in position makes him even more desirable to sketch out. The drawing took me two hours to complete and that's not including making the tutorial steps. I had a hard time choosing what type of background to draw with this character, so I went back to some old lessons on some of the angels I've drawn over time, and looked at some ideas. Eventually I came up with this background and I think it works well with the anime fallen angel. All in all I think you will enjoy learning "how to draw anime wings", and if you have an idea you would like to see as a tutorial, let me know like always and I will see what I can do to get the lesson filled. Thanks guys for joining me once more with this brand new submission. I will be back later or even tomorrow so either come back or stick around for a few. Adios people and enjoy the rest of your drawing day!

How to Draw Anime Wings, Draw an Anime Angel

how to draw anime wings, draw an anime angel step 1

STEP 1.

Now, this is a very common type of wing seen in various types of animes. This is the traditional and simple angel wing (feathered wing) that varieties of characters obtain in tons of animes. Whether your character is an innocent angel girl or maybe an evil fallen angel, these wings can be drawn in many styles. Drawing sharp edged wings will portray a darker character rather than drawing soft and fluffed wings. 1) are the primaries. There are usually 5 - 6 feathers on large - soaring birds (eagles, hawks, vultures). These wings go perfectly for humanoid characters, specifically because they are designed for aiding larger birds in tactical flight. 2) are the secondaries that are much smaller compared to their cousin feathers. Most wings are detailed in 3 regions, which taper into large to small feathers.

STEP 2.

Here's a take on demon type wings that you can add to villainous characters. I find drawing bat type wings pretty cool for villains because of the bare flesh of the skin membrane and bony human type fingers. 1) Bat wings such as these, generally have 4 - 5 fingers. You can add as many as you like for a more unique creation. 2) Adding wrinkles to the wing finger joints, wing membrane base, and other areas that have stretched flesh, will create a more realistic appearance. 3) Adding rips and tears into the wings will make the character seem as if he's been through rough times. 4) Adding toned muscle to the base of the wing is essential because of the fact that it acts as a third arm attached in between the shoulder blades.

STEP 4.

Wings should connect to the base of the back, in between the shoulder blades. NEVER draw the wings below the shoulder or above the shoulder. This will make them look totally ridiculous and unbelievable. Think of them realistically and how they would work on humans or any other type of creature. Keep in mind that having a large person and small wings wouldn't be logically possible for the person to fly.

The flow wings are established, can be hard to pinpoint, especially since it depends on the actions your character engages. Look at various types of bird/bat wings on the web and observe on how the bat is angling. To create diverse types of wings, you must observe and experiment.
