After 3 weeks I finally finished this.
One night I woke up sweating cold and I remember clearly that I whispered "I think I know how wings work" and quickly started to sketch this.
I gotta say I like how the wings came out, whatcha guys think?



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I wasn't planning on commenting, but after reading the one below with 0 stars, it seemed too harsh. The wings might not be perfect, but they are definitely an attempt at authenticity and pretty good in my opinion, compared to other drawn wings that I've seen.

I don't really know what's going on in the picture, but it all seems very surreal (which is a good quality in drawing, especially here on Newgrounds. There aren't too many kinds of pictures like this). It actually reminds me of the Binding of Isaac (which, from looking at the faded big guy in the background and other things like the blue fairies, cements this thought even further in my mind). The picture's kind of creepy so I'd say you hit the nail on the head.

for suggestions, I say trying adding more detail to it, especially in the places around the winged character (you can barely see the blue bugs). I look forward to your next creation. Good luck!

Hey, thanks for the review!
Yeah I see what you mean, you see this thing has been sitting unfinished for MONTHS so I rushed it so I could move on other stuff (I hate leaving good stuff unfinished, which results in deep detail in some parts and half-assed stuff on the rest), so yeah, the background and blue flies were all rushed and didn't pay much attention to it. I might go back and do some proper work on it!
Again, thank you so much for taking your time into analyzing my artwork and writing a review, it really helps a lot <3

You need to draw a ton of different types of wings from life so that you can understand how and why they work. Start with the skeleton, then the musculature, then the feathers. Even Frank Frazetta used reference.
