Hey, remember this: fav.me/d31ofq8 well I went and did some research :D hopefully more useful/clear. And now I can move on with my life :B

These are you're basic 'donts' with wings in general with some of my pet peeves thrown in there

Thanks for this :3 I think I'm going to keep my design as it is currently (shrunken ribcage to accomidate flight muscles so that the exterior effect resembles that of a human with majik chemicals in the blood for better oxygen efficiency despite that, so in general, pretty much no exterior change other than huge honking wings :P) but if I ever want to be more... realistic... I'll definitely know where to come~

'sides, I use our chickens as references, and they're good models :|

Practicality in conflict with beauty. What else is new?

Thank you for the research, this saved me time.
