So Nicholas Kole challenged people to come up with a genderflipped version of Beauty and the Beast, where the lady-Beast was actually beastly, and not just a pretty girl with tusks and horns – so I took him up on it during today’s lunchtime scribbles.

A lot of the others who have taken up the challenge have gone with mammal-based beasts – so I decided to go in another direction, namely birds! With some extra horns and tusks, sure, but she’s mostly bird-based.

Also, lady-Beast isn’t pink because she’s a girl. She’s pink because she’s a Bearded Vulture:

A species that ought to shut up all those silly people who whine about how feathered dinosaurs wouldn’t look cool. Look at it. It eats bones.
