Thank you, Aedosama, so much for taking the time to not only check the drawing out, but offer such a valuable observation. I did the piece on a whim, and wasn't paying attention like I should have. That wing bugs me to no end and if it were a piece for a client, I'd redraw the entire thing (or edit it digitally). As it is, it serves as a good reminder to myself that mistakes happen and to be more careful.

Funny enough, in the speedlapse video I made while doing this drawing (called "Old Artist vs Young Artist" on my YT channel), at 14:12 in the video, I put a callout to that very wing you noticed.

I may go back and edit it digitally at some point, and if I do it will be because of your advice. I'll repost, as well.

Thanks again and I sincerely appreciate your generous thoughts! Cheers!
