I've never considered vultures an attractive bird of prey but when this one turned to look at me the pose felt like a beauty shot and I wanted to translate that feeling into a drawing so others would see her the same way. She was a joy to draw, from the blue crisp detailed feathers on her back to the soft fluffy feathers around her head and she has the most beautiful eyes.
The title popped into my head as I was working on her, one of those rare moments of inspiration!
