Having built quite a few dragons, I think I have (for the most part) most aspects of dragon anatomy down. What challenges me to no end, however, is coming up with a proper wing design. Does anyone have any tips for building wings?

Brick built wings could be a challenge especially for a dragon.

First of, I'll use your yellow dragon for an example. I think you're yellow dragon's wings are alright, but not my favorite part...

I would suggest expanding(make it larger) the wings to reveal the dragon more. It also does seem quite tiny. And also, you're dragon seems quite big for the wings. I don't think wings that tiny would be able to carry the dragon's weight while flying. So yeah, make the wings larger.

I would also suggest putting more "detail" like spikes on the wings to make it more interesting and all that. (Minifig hands and yellow toooth peices would be a good idea)

Also, some of the end look "squarish" Try to make the end of the wings "pointy".

Examples of dragons with wings that have pointy ends:

http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/304230 < Stormbringer's idea of putting clips and attaching purple spikes under the the ends of wings is a good example.





I hope this advice helps :)
