Like many others, I also think bearded vulture has some dragon-like traits.
This kind of creature has been on my mind for awhile now and I actually have painted her a couple of times - not to mention drawing. This was pretty enjoyable to paint. [:
I might do a full body picture of her later. She is like a wyvern of some kind. She has usually gold under her body because of her crawling in caves of her beloved mountains. I thought her name could be "Kuningatar" which means simply "queen" in english. c:
