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.

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!

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

You should have tried with a Leptoptilos.

This one is still a beauty. I've to say it's still strange to see breasts on a bird's chest. It's no maya codices neither egyptian hieroglyph, so must be a new religion, culture.

Pretty nice work.
