MAN I'M SO HAPPY WITH HOW THIS ONE TURNED OUT

First time in ever that I basically let loose and did wtfever I wanted for an assignment. I love me a big bird monster. Also it's all conceptual and ~deep~ and deals with the Shadow Self archetype and whatevs.

Feels reminiscing of the 1978 version of Beauty and the Beast, where the beast is like a giant crow or raven.

this needs an adult filter. Some of us are tired of having to look at women being objectified no matter where we go.
