How to Draw Cartoon Wings

Step 1.

We will start by drawing the right wing first. Begin by making a swoop like line for the wing bone, and then come around at the top making sure to draw the tip rounded. Continue the lining process by drawing the bottom part of the wing with feather tips.

Step 2.

You will repeat the same process that you just drew in step one when you draw out the left wing. Notice how they are close together, and how they attach at the base.

Step 3.

The arrows represent the direction that you should draw the wing feathers in. Even though these are cartoon style wings, the feathers should be drawn in the same fashion which is larger feathers at the top, and smaller feathers on the way down.

Step 4.

Begin drawing the first layer of feathers for your cartoon wings like so. This can be done just by using a back and fourth motion.

Step 5.

Repeat the same process on the left wing following the same technique you used to draw your right wing.

Step 6.

For the third layer of feathers you will follow the arrow pattern which is pointing the feathers line of motion upward instead of being drawn in a straight out manner.

Step 7.

Begin drawing the last layer of feathers for your cartoon wings, and notice how the feather are a lot larger, as well as longer then the ones you drew in step five. Once they have all been drawn in, sketch in detailing to the feathers like so.

Step 8.

Again, repeat the same process on the left wing by drawing the feathers the very same way. Clean up the drawing by erasing all the mistakes and guides if you have made any.

Step 9.

When all is said and done, your cartoon wings should come out looking like the set you see here.
