Mr. Draelen again, this time from behind. Obviously, this drawing is quite a bit more conceptual than the first, given that he's missing one wing and the membrane on the other. I wanted to show the scale of his wings, but did not want them to obstruct important anatomy and marking details so this was my solution.
Drawing this forced me to confront a couple of crucial anatomy problems of anthropomorphic characters: how does a digitigrade posture effect leg and pelvis anatomy? How does a thick, muscular tail attach to a humanoid torso? How do the addition of wings affect torso musculature and bone structure? Unfortunately, I wasn't ready to answer any of these, so said body parts were just pasted on xD. I did tuck the wing into the small space between the lattissimus dorsi and the trapezius, which is an incredibly poor solution but at least it looks OK from an aesthetic standpoint. I must continue in my anatomy studies to arrive at better solutions for these problems~
