(brush and digital post-production)

As a fan of cryptozoology I knew about sightings of the orang bati —a flying ape creature from Indonesia that eats children for breakfast and lives in a volcano.But recently I learned that there's an American version.Its name? Batsquatch —because,you know,it's half bat and half sasquatch.
The idea of a flying carnivorous ape who lives in a volcano sounds like something out of a pulp,a Silver Age comic book or an action cartoon so I just had to draw it.
