Bird wings can come in many different shapes and sizes, as diverse as the many bird species that inhabit the planet.
The complexity of a bird’s wing makes drawing seem difficult, but it can be made a lot easier if you know what to do!
How to Draw A Wing
In this first step of our guide to drawing a wing, we’ll start with a curved line like the one you see in the reference image.
This may seem like a bad starting point for a wing, but you’ll find it will make a great foundation for your wing in the next few steps!
Now that you’ve drawn the first line of your wing, we can start adding more.
To draw the wing, extend the left side down a little and the right side a little.
The reference image will show you what it should look like before proceeding to step 3.
The lines you’ve been working on so far in this guide will make up the top section of the wing, and in this step, we’ll start adding the wing tips.
To do this, extend a line down from the left side of your line, then shape it into several long, jagged shapes.
The reference image will give you an idea of the length of these tips, as some should be longer than others for a more realistic look.
The next step of our guide to drawing a wing may be complicated. To make things easier, you could use a pencil to help you.
Using the pencil, draw a sharply curved line from the left side of the wing to the right.
Once you’ve drawn this line as a guide, you can use the pen to add sharper shapes, e.g., B. Wing tips extending along the line.
Once you’ve drawn the tips, you can erase the pencil line you drew as a guide.
Your wing design looks good so far! In real life, wings are made up of multiple layers of feathers. We’ll add another layer to your wing to make your drawing more realistic.
In this step, we’ll add sharper, jagged lines similar to the ones you drew in the previous step.
These are above the row of wings you drew earlier and extended to the left side of the wing.
This is another step where accurate reference to the reference image is very helpful in getting good spacing and placement.
You’re about to finish this tutorial on how to draw a grand piano! As mentioned in the previous step, the wings are made up of multiple layers, and for this step, we will be adding the last one to bring this design together.
To finish, add another row of much smaller jagged lines across the top of the previous row you drew.
These are the final details we have for this wing, but feel free to add more lines and small details to personalize your design further.
Once this line is drawn, your glider is ready for the final step of this guide!
When you’ve drawn the wing, you’ll be glad to know that it’s time for the final step of our how-to draw a wing guide, and it’s one of the funniest steps of all! In this step, you can show us how creative you can be with beautiful colors!
We only showed you one way to color your wing in our picture, but you should let your creativity run wild for your drawing!
Birds come in all imaginable colors in nature, which gives you a lot of freedom to choose your favorite colors for your wing.
If I were to color this wing, I would use acrylics for more vibrant color detail, but whatever you use will look amazing!
Your Wing Drawing is Finished!
