Wing-Movement Sheet 2



A: A "popular" movement you see very often, landing/starting birds move a wing "like" that.
B: A similar movment, just with another angle and more bend down.
C: Streched up, you can see such a movement when the bird stops in the air before landing.
D: Bend forward, a pretty useful pose for winged people and anthros, just "waiting" before they take off.
E: This is more a comical movement of a wing, just if a bird would use it like a hand.
F: Similar pose just with the primary feathers bend down.
G: The same here, its more comical... It is like you would make a hug with wings. (The red part is the invisible part of the primary feathers)
H: Unusual Wing-movent you still see often at Bird Anthros or Character, you bend the part with the primary feathers like the wrist, to create a natural movment of the "not existing" hand on the wing.
I: A bird folds his wings on his back when resting, this is the movement just before he finally folds it on his back.

EDIT: Updated... I wanted to make that available as print, but I can't get the inked drawings scanned in a higher quality.. so if you are intersted in a print of this one, just tell me ;)

Another Edit cause.. yes... I get too much feedback concerning this not being correct, this is supposed to be a WING AS AN ARM! not the inverse way, just if you want to bend a wing in the pose of an arm, I know this isn't perfect and I never said so, but still, I hope it is helpful at all.
and please keep in mind, this is OLD, REALLY OLD ^^;
