Developmental Commentary

The vulture is an ugly scavenger that preys on the weak, dying, and dead. With very sharp beaks, talons, and splined tongues the vulture can tear and eat even the toughest of hides. Other than tearing and eating meat, vultures hover over the desolate regions they inhabit in search of potential food sources, abandoned carcasses, dying animals, baby antelopes, and lizards. I tried to find a middle ground, something that was sharp and showed no remorse yet was still lofty enough to hover. What I ended up with are a lot like lofty lightening bolts that don’t seem too friendly yet still seem like they could catch a dessert thermal and hover for hours.
