Another winged dude in a skirt pic. Yay, as if DA needs another. :-P I've never quite understood the whole fascination with wings, but apparently people like them. Which is fine by me since they're really enjoyable to draw.

Thanks very much to *fongmingyun who suggested a winged dude when I asked for ideas for AX in my journal. I hope you enjoy. :) I had a lot of fun on this one. He didn't come out very anime-styled though. I'm afraid I got carried away....

Used some refs for this one. Male figure was modified from this Posemaniacs pose: [link] And the wings are based off of about a dozen crow and raven pictures I found on Google. Not gonna post any of them, though, since it's not based off of any one image in particular.

Otherwise, the usual. Start to finish in Photoshop. Don't even try to make sense of the lighting on this one. There is no sense to it, I'm afraid. :\

...I need to practice drawing guys more often.

Hey, I wanted to know if it was alright if I used this picture for a English project for school, if not its fine, I understand that not everyone wants there are to be used by others.

That looks cool, the lantern, background and his expression give the picture a mysterious kind of atmosphere. And his wings look great^^

Really beautiful. I'm writing a fantasy book for the past year and It's basically a World of Wings (ppl have wings'n'stuff, they evolve etc.) and this really made it easier for me to imagine what I needed. Good work with this one! :)
