Winged People Anatomy: Bone Structure. by Blue-Hearts Winged People Anatomy: Bone Structure. by Blue-Hearts
You'll probably need to download to look at it properly.

This is just kinda how I think it would work (shhh people who want to say "But its not possibleeeee" I'm drinking Rum-Redbull and its not meant to be a biology report, its fantasy/sci-fi).
Where the wings are on backs always annoys me and how it would work also annoys me too because skeletons are weird. I like drawing bones and wings. But I get irritated when it makes no sense.

A/N: This will be updated soon and broken down into Bones, Muscles and Feathers.
Edit: You may have noticed it has changed. That will be because I have been doing a lot of studying, research and talking to actual doctors and physiotherapists who understand anatomy and asking for their opinions. Also done one for the muscles and wings themselves which i'll have up soon.

Bones, Anatomy Ref from www.biodigitalhuman.com/ , medical books, doctors, various sources of photos and ornithological books and diagrams.

This is really damn awesome! Haha!

question though: what are your thoughts on what keeps the body extended during flight? Like, what keeps the lower torso and legs up?

Their own muscles and the airflow beneath (depending on how fast they fly) but they'd have to use their legs anyway, if they don't have tail-feathers, to control the finer turning moments in the air. But to get off the ground anyway they're gonna need the body and control of a gymnast, so a lot of muscle and strength in all their limbs.

I have a character who has completely useless wings (as they are too small to lift her up in the first place) and this reference makes me realize (despite her wings being more bat-like) they look very... off. Maybe her wings are deformed, too. :dummy:

I'm doing a wing drawing tutorial soon to help with wing-to-body size proportions as well as how to show how i draw them, if you feel like the wings on your characters are a little off you can always take a look (or go 'Nah, they can be like hummingbirds and be small but beat real fast' because hey they're your characters c: )

I meant the shape was off, but she's not the only winged character, but thank you anyways.
