Step 3

We depict radially diverging lines that cover almost the entire surface of the wings. Unpainted should only be areas similar to small wings that are located medially.

Step 4

You think this will be a very difficult stage, right? In fact, we just need to depict the ovals in each gap between the lines from the previous step. Keep an eye on the symmetry as well as the difference in size and shape of these ovals.

Step 5

Repeat the previous step with minor changes. We also draw oval shapes, but now they should be smaller. Also these figures should be directed down.

Step 6

Now we are starting the stage in which we will depict the last row of oval shapes. We should depict the smallest figures of all that are in our drawing. Ovals that are located laterally should be directed upward.

Step 7

This will be the easiest step of the whole lesson, in fact. Here we need to depict smooth curved lines that follow the contours of the feathers. Only the most medial row of feathers has no lines.

Step 8

At this stage, we evaluate the shape of our wings and the symmetry of the pattern. Compare the segments of each wing and the difference in size. If you do not see inaccuracies or errors, you can proceed to the next step.

Step 9

Add some color. We decided to choose a light gray color for the wings. You can choose another color for these wings if you draw a character with dark or blue wings.
