Wizard of Oz: Winged Gorilla

I liked bringing in black next to the red and yellow as feathers below, but it covers up the body paint a little more than I like on the shoulders. The feathers on the shoulders also give the character a more aggressive warrior look and I'm shooting for just hunter - before enslaved by the Wicked Witch.

 I saw a picture of a hairless gorilla, and it seemed a perfect match for leathery bat wings. I designed this character not as the Wicked Witch's henchman, but more like a hunter gatherer of the deep dark jungles of Oz.
