I wanted to draw a strange and ugly anthropomorphic creature. This doesn't come from any real culture but she looks as though she could have been.

Yes, she does have a vulture head :P A griffon vulture.

Also this is a beautiful piece. The blend of anatomies is perfect.

This reminds me of two things:
1: A harpy.
2: A realistic version of The "Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker" Rito (bird people).

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that she looks like tzeentch, one of the warhammer gods of chaos. Theres a trailer out somewhere from one of the recent games where he makes a very impressive appearance, thought i don't know which one off the top of my head.

Before I read the description, I was convinced that she was based off of a real-life ancient character. Egyptians had all of the anthropomorphic crocodiles and such... a vulture makes perfect sense.

I'd never call this an ugly creation; vultures have such a bad reputation. Beaks aside, they're cool birds. It's still a pleasure to see an anthropomorphic creature that isn't shaped like a runway model. l3 I love her expression!

Aaaaahhhhhhh! AH!
AHHHHH!!!
So freaking epic. The physique of the being is enchantingly ugly. Love the talons and the oddly graceful position. Excellent work.
