Is my drawing suppose to be this waxy?
As you can see the left wing is looking like a solid black. But the right wing has a glossy waxy effect to it. My question is if its suppose to be that waxy since I used prismacolor pencils or did I do something wrong. If so can you offer help on how to fix it thank you.

Prismacolor pencils are wax-based and when you lay down heavy color with them, you can get what's called a "wax bloom," which is what you see. Why it's more noticeable on the left wing vs. the right, I don't know. But you can take a soft cloth or tissue and gentle rub that to lift some of the bloom.

You are using the wrong media, coloured pencils will not achieve the perfectly flat colour you seem to want.
If you want a flat consistent colour use gouache.
With some practice and the right paper you could use markers.

The left wing is not identical the dark colour is slightly thicker giving the impression you describe

I think your paper had residues on it before you started drawing.
