the feathers at the edge mostly become bigger, and you can try to draw the feather a bit different every time.
i think this will make the wing look more natural. good luck :D

You should draw the feathers in little groups, like you would do hair in locks. To give more structure, drawing every feather makes it look fake, or you have to be very patient and draw every little detail for it to work.

Thiiiis.

It does also kinda depend on what look you're going for and what you're doing. If you're doing a study about wings and feathers, sure, I can see drawing everything, but when rendering an illustration it's so much easier to do wings in groups. If you're looking at them from close up, more detail would likely be shown, but from a distance it wouldn't be nearly as detailed. Looking at different type of birds and their wings is probably a good idea if you wanna learn to draw them.

To be honest I was going for something that may resembled manga wings, like in D.N.Angel (brilliant anime by the way I recommend it) or Yu-Gi-Oh. I'm practising this skill(?) because in school, on Tuesdays after-school, we are having a comic club where we actually make our own . (note: This is rare for my school to have a club that is about making something like this (something to do with art)).

I know this is a few weeks old, but I just had to comment xD

Your wings are bending wrong. Or rather, they're missing a bone.

Wings are, crudely put, arms with feathers on them. They start at a shoulder joint, have an upper arm bone, two lower arm bones (radius and ulna), and fingers. With bird wings the fingers have merged, pretty much.

This means you can actually use your own arms for reference to see how a bird/angel/feathered wing works. The only way you can get the wings the way you have them now, is by raising your arm in a weird, uncomfortable upward angle.

I recommend taking a good look at this tutorial. It explains a bit about how feathers work and where they should go, too.

The monster thingy is cute though; it reminds me of something I drew a long time ago, haha.

Just had a quick look at it. Yeah that looks like it would be helpful. Thanks :D
