Someone requested I do this, so here it is.

Here are some examples of wings at different angles. I did this pretty quickly, in about 30 minutes so apologies that the wings don't look that good.

Best advice I can give is to study birds in flight and perspective.

For drawing the actual wing, please refer to [link]

This will be very helpful. I struggle with angel wings a lot. People say i do them very well, but i know inside myself that i am not doing them accurately. So, i shall keep this around for reference, thanks.
