I'm having way too much fun drawing Kor's wings, though they're certainly time consuming. HUGE thanks to Nambroth's relatistic wing tutorial: http://nambroth.deviantart.com/art/Realistic-Bird-Wings-96309379?q=favby%3ATheSilverTopHat%2F39513207&qo=1.

I think I've mentioned before that Kor is based off a roadrunner, at least in coloring. Roadrunners have the white and brown speckling part of his wings have, but the rest I kind of made up off the top of my head. This page shows very well how Avians use their wings when talking, like some people gesture with their hands. I think it's important to make wings look like part of a character that twitches and moves and shifts as the rest of their body does, and not like a strap-on backpack that just hangs there unless they're using the wings to fly.
