I do believe that this is a beautiful piece of stock, the texturing and details obviously have a lot of time spent on them, and a very apply-able piece. I'll start with the nitpicky things first, though.

The reason why I didn't give so well on the technique is because, (and I'll have to disagree with the person below me) the anatomy of the wing just doesn't look right. It is far too triangular in shape, especially near the base where the feathers grow back up towards the arm/bone part of the wing. (Which means this wing cannot fly, since there is nothing against the side of the creature with which to catch the wind) The wing lacks the organization and arc-shapes that a realistic wing should have, and it looks like it's all just radiating from one point of the wing at the top bend. The bone of the wing also lacks a joint, the elbow-like bend where it initially comes out from the back. The feathers themselves are too 'fuzzy', which might work for young fledgling wing-feeling, but a real wing has very stiff and light primaries and secondaries that can catch and slice the wind.
Here are a few pictures that should give an idea of the layout of the feathers of the wing, how it follows the bone/arm part. [link] [link] [link]

I'm sorry if anything sounded too harsh in that, I just want to point out the technicalities of the anatomy.
I have to say, though, your painting and colours are lovely. It's very neat according to what you drew, each stroke purposeful with nice contrast in the piece.

That wasn't exactly nice, you know.

I was thinking angel wings and the like when I critiqued this, not birds.
wispywaffle's avatar
Oops, I think I misunderstood. You were referring to how I 'disagreed' with you as not nice, was it?
DoJayMi's avatar
Yeah, it gave the impression you were trying to make me look like an idiot.
wispywaffle's avatar
Not at all. :U I was merely stating my opinion, which differed from yours. That`s not an insult.
DoJayMi's avatar
Glad to know, you can never tell what people are implying in a chat box or texting, because you can't really convey emotions or intent very well.

Angels don't exist as far as I know, at least not enough for people to do detailed studies of them. What do angel wings look like?

I was making a suggestion, because picture with their base in reality sometimes just carry that bit more oompf.

I don't understand why you think it's not nice? I never said the picture was not beautiful, and if the artist likes her own stylization, I'm not about to force her to do anything.
DoJayMi's avatar
Yeah, angels do exist, they're just not really winged people as most guys make them out to be; that's Cupid. :D Anyways, look up Kid Icarus to see what angel wings look like. I can't guarantee a lot of good results on deviantart, though there are a lot of good ones.
wispywaffle's avatar
.___.
Kid Icarus is a video game - see, that's someone`s idea of a winged kid, not something you could ref off of and call it real. What I'm trying to say is, 'angel wings' don't exist. There may be a lot of styles of wings that look similar.
DoJayMi's avatar
You don't need to get into specifics. I'm just saying that this is good for angel wings, pegasus's and dragons (yes they can have feathery wings), not anything realistic.

I'm going to try to say this as nice as I can:

I didn't mean anything like birds. There, that wasn't so bad! I bet you thought I was going to insult you!

Look at my gallery. I think I know feathered wings can go anywhere. x'D

Also, no you've never said angel wings in your critque. "The fluff and down on the feathers are very realistic, you clearly have a knowledge of how wings should look. I studied birds and other things with wings, and I can tell you, the feathers and bones are all in the right spots. This is perfect for those who are looking for a reference on how to draw wings. The picture, and how the wings are positioned, are perfect for aspiring artists like myself. "
If you really aspired to draw realistic wings with the 'bones and feathers' in the right place (which, by the way, they are not, but that's almost beside the point by now)- reference real wings instead of someone's stylation.
And if you had meant angel wing in the first place, then say so and say how you like the style of the artist.

There's nothing wrong with saying either, but I disagree with the fact that you said the bones and feathers are in the right spot. You obviously had not studied real wings. And no, video game wings do not count.


??? @A@ And I don't know about you but I don't really go around expecting people to insult me.

I happen to be an avid bird watcher, FYI, and I grow tired of this conversation.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and critique my image, I appreciate that.

I'd like to point out that I am aware of the anatomy issues that are stated here. I'm not good with anatomy, not in the least. Honestly, it doesn't matter very much to me, I was really aiming for an image that is visually pleasing and very usable as a stock piece.

I'd also like to say, that even if I managed to fix the bone structure, no wing in the real world would ever be able to curve like this one, so in theory, it could never be repaired.

Either way though, I'm quite pleased with the overall outcome of the image and I'm absolutely thrilled with how this has been received by the dA community.

Wing anatomy is one of my top pet peeves, that's why I go around pointing it out sometimes. Dx

Well, there isn't much you can do if you want to keep the triangular arch-shape, but something like this [link] could be done if you didn't mind extending it.

Not that I suggest you change it if you're happy with it, and good job on the support you've gotten.
Thy-Darkest-Hour's avatar
Its okay.... Perhaps you should take up wing-stocking yourself?

Thanks for the visual, but to be honest, this doesn't really help me any, I don't seem to have the ability to to tell bone structure from rough sketch.

As it stands, the only thing I may change is that I think the area at the very top seems a little fat.
wispywaffle's avatar
Mm, not for me. I don't like creating exploitable work and lose track of it. Keep up the good work though, many people love it.

Well, no, it's pretty hard to fix at this stage, I was just suggesting what could have happened.

This is very well done and realistic! It is also the very type of wing that could be applied to many different things, such as angels, pegasuses or however that plural is, and even dragons! The fluff and down on the feathers are very realistic, you clearly have a knowledge of how wings should look. I studied birds and other things with wings, and I can tell you, the feathers and bones are all in the right spots. This is perfect for those who are looking for a reference on how to draw wings. The picture, and how the wings are positioned, are perfect for aspiring artists like myself.

This is a work of art. Keep up the good work!

Love these! For me these are the best yet, though many times I've clicked on a preview and been like 'WOW!' Versatile too. I can brighten them to make them more angelic, and use Photoshop command-I for a demonic version! Thanks so much, making a small donation now so you'll know you're appreciated Hug

Rhial by DimrillDale-236344 Thank you for your wonderful stock. I apologize for the crudeness of the image- I'm still working on manipulating with GIMP.
