The many types of avian wings. part 1 by camelpardia The many types of avian wings. part 1 by camelpardia

*Note*
This tutorial does not go over the basics of drawing avian wings, I would recommend being familiar with the basics before reading this tutorial.
Here are a few good tutorials if you're new to bird wings or are feeling rusty:
TheAntimonyElement Bird wing tutorial  fav.me/d2ht4et
Ciameth Ciameth's wing tutorial  fav.me/d4ajtub
Majnouna Drawing birds part 1  fav.me/dd5tid

So, this took a while to create and is mostly based on information I collected for my thesis. I really love how birds have mastered the sky, and I also like analyzing things to death :3
I hope to continue with this project and create three parts in total, and I'm currently working on number three.

Most of the information in this tutorial comes from
-Cornell Lab of Ornithology Handbook of Bird Biology 2nd Edition
-Fåglarnas ekologi

Part one, Standard wing types: fav.me/danpkgt
Part two, Aspect ratio and wing loading: fav.me/dao4odc
Part three, Wing types based on flight patters and foraging styles: fav.me/daq3zns
Part four, Application: working on it

Good choice, it's the one I'd personally recommend for gryphons and gryphon-like creatures.
By the way, I like the gryphondrake's design, very classic.

gillar att det är olika färg på olika typer av fjädrar, så man kan jämföra sorterna

Mmm, har sett folk göra det när man har jämfört olika skellett så ja tänkte att det kanske skulle funka på vingar också

XD tänkte på det. och det är ju ganska logiskt
look foreward to see more of this kinds of stuff (be cause when you know shit, and both enjoy telling about it and rage when others gets it wrong, there should be more of it!)

and often enough. But it's like smokers; they'll always be around, even if you stab everyone you see, so there's no way of fixing it really
