Here I started to make the "wing" for the angelic structure, starting with one piece of the "feather". Having it curve a little and with gaps in between made the finished wing look pretty decent and this is done with a simple custom brush (Fig.11).

I then hit the record button on my actions editor in Photoshop. With this I was able to record the transformations I applied to the "feather". With that button activated, I duplicated the "feather" layer, free transformed and rotated it a little bit downward, as shown in Fig.12.

I then stopped the recording and played it back several times to get this result, which is pretty cool (Fig.13).

Now with the entire wing selected, I rotated it up to give it a spread wing feeling (Fig.14).

Then I flattened the layers to be able to paint on top of it. I added the fog on the lower parts of the wing to establish distance and space (Fig.15) & (Fig.16).

I continued to define and detail the cityscape. Then with an overlay layer, I was able to do some adjustments with a soft brush, such as pulling the colors and brightness in a direction I wanted (Fig.17). This was more useful towards the end of the painting session, to harmonize the colors a bit more.
