Tezturing Wings

Hi, I’m terribly sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, I’m new to Blender, but I’m making a duck and can’t get the texture for its wings right, in fact I have no idea what to even use.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Are you using procedural textures or uv mapping? Can you post an image of what the wings look like with and without your current textures, a wireframe view and maybe even the texture map. This will give us an idea of what is going on and what you are trying to achieve. Also, have you looked at the unwrapping and texture painting functionality in Blender?
