Wing Tutorial Art

Here is a splendid tutorial on rendering wings on a humanoid body.

This is how I handle extrapolative biology.  I look for something similar to start with, if anything relevant can be found.  I try to imagine the details as precisely as possible.  I look for potential conflicts and consider how to resolve them.  I aim for something both plausible and appealing.  And I try to follow natural rules such as "use what you have" and "whatever will do the job is okay."  Usually I end up with functional monsters, aliens, etc.  The original tutorial was aiming for angel but I never think of them as exclusively corporeal, so mine can do things like adjust the size of their wings.
