So, I don't believe that the "angelic" type winged human can exist (y'know, the kind with the feathery wings sprouting from the back). Too many problems of anatomy, weight, etc. But I am trying to create something where the humanoid is winged, but with a more plausible anatomy.
Added to which: I'm creating a microgravity habitat where humanoids have developed wings to fly there (I don't know the exact amount of microgravity as compared to the gravity of Earth but very low), with air composition and density to match Earths atmosphere.
Here's a drawing of what I imagine (better art work forthcoming):
The wings are not feathery, but more fleshy with cartilaginous joints like those seen in these x-rays of animals.
That being the case, maybe the wings could even do what the tail of this animal is doing:
So the appendages/"wings" are connected to the body the same way that a cats tail is connected to a cat or that lizard, can move about in many different ways, and can flap to propel the humanoid through the air of this microgravity environment.
Say we hand wave the possibility of how these humanoids developed this way (extra love if you tackle that), do you think this anatomy could work to give them flight in this environment?
p.s. In the drawing I made one hand webbed, and the other not, to ask if it would make difference either way, though I've kind've decided against it myself.
p.s.s. I also took some inspiration from this (in terms of the wings):
