This is a beautiful piece, and your wings are closer to being anatomically correct than many other incarnations... including Cas' wings on the show. If I might provide a few pointers, though...

You've definitely got the major groups of feathers, and your primaries (the first set of feathers on the outer edge) are shaped well... and the scapulars (the shoulder feathers) are beautifully fluffed. I also love the way the alulas (thumb feathers - the little flaps at the outer joint) are flared. It's a little difficult to tell from the lighting, but it looks like you've layered the feathers starting with the outermost primary on top? It's actually the other way around... the outermost primary is layered underneath all the others, with the innermost secondary on the top. Like I said though, the back-lighting does make it difficult to tell precisely which feathers are on top of which, since feathers are pretty translucent (especially with dramatic backlighting like this :D ).

The other main thing is that the elbow joint of the wing shouldn't be able to open quite that far - it looks a little unnaturally straight... kind of like there isn't a joint there at all. Real wings (birds, bats, or otherwise) can't actually straighten out all the way like this. Again, this could just be me getting confused by those beautifully intense highlights and the angle we're viewing the wings from (which might be the case, now that I'm looking at it again). Did you reference from a photo? I'm just wondering, 'cause they look a bit like swan wings, and swan wings always amused me with how awkward they look when they're folded. :XD:

Also, here's a tutorial I really like. Just 'cause it's awesome, and it makes drawing wings freehand so much easier. :) nambroth.deviantart.com/art/Re…

Anyway, I'm probably just being nitpicky... or possibly blind. I might need new glasses soon, I admit. :P Also, I'm a total nerd about birds, so every time Cas shows off the shadows of his wings on the show, everyone else is like "OH LOOK. A REAL ANGEL. WITH REAL ANGEL WINGS", I'm just like "Hey, he's molting his flight feathers. And his alulas are dislocated. He should probably have that looked at." Heh. :XD:

Those wings are absolutely stunning and very well drawn, like the rest of this masterpice.
I still hope we get to see his real wings someday in the actual show. I am so curious about how they will look like :)
