Draw Detailed Angel Wings

  • Position angel wings to look like they grow out of the angel's back or shoulder blades to make them seem more realistic.

  • Draw an upside-down "V" on each side of the angel to make the shape of the angel wings.

  • Add layers of feathers to the wings. To draw feathers, use small curved "V" shapes that point in different directions.

  • Make angel wings with long feathers by drawing feathers that look like ribbons hanging off of your "V."

  • Create lifelike feathers by adding detailing. Draw lines through the feathers and make them cut and jagged to create texture.

  • Try using a teardrop shape for your angel wings. Make the curved part of the teardrop connected to the back of the angel and curve the points of the teardrops upwards to make them look more like wings.
