Wing 1 is yellow polarbear.
Wing 2 is fox sunburst yellow.
Wing 3 is black temple dog.

And finished with some JC cheeks and a silver ufo disc from futurefly

Glad to see another with a nice long wing.

Most that I looked at online had far longer wings than many posted this month. A lot aren't that much longer than a standard hairwing. Being completely new to this style, I thought I had copied something completely wrong. 馃槉馃槀

Having never owned a piece of actual colobus monkey, can I assume that it also does not compress, similar to goat?

Not sure what are the criteria for a Monkey, but...

-body; fluorescent green, yellow and bright red
-wing; black Bucktail and two bunches of Monkey
- hologram eyes
