  • $\begingroup$ I am not quite sure with your image of "wing on a cube". Do you want to attach a 3D, realistic of wing or a 2D, cartoon-like wing or something else. $\endgroup$ – Allosteric Jan 2 '18 at 9:30

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Blender.SE. Your queston is quite unclear at the moment. I would suggest to add more information about what you have and what you are not able to achieve. Why would you use the grease pencil? $\endgroup$ – Carlo Jan 2 '18 at 10:51

    $\begingroup$ This seems like a very basic modeling project, what exactly are you having trouble with? $\endgroup$ – VRM Jan 2 '18 at 16:15

Using your reference image, here is a quick solution:

Under the Properties panel in the 3D viewport, enable Background Images, then click Add Image. Pressing Open will bring you to a file browser; here, select your winged ball image. Image highlighting Background Images panel.

Switch to orthographic view (5 on the numpad), than press (on the numpad) 7. Add a plane, then go into edit mode. Select all of the points but one and delete them. Move the point to the edge of the wing in the picture. Then, pressing E (for extrude) make a line around the wing. After getting to the end, select both end points and press F to fill in a line.

The last two points.

The line is finished along the whole wing:

Finished line image.

Now that the whole outline is created, press F to fill the area with a face. Exit "Top Orthographic" view. Press E while the whole outline is selected to extrude the outline and add depth to the wing.

Here is the finished wing: Image of the finished wing.

Here is what I made with this: My render

Hope this helps!
