We had an amazing time with this Hero Challenge! Thank you so much to all of the participants. Your creatures were wild, beautiful, and completely unexpected.
Terryl's chosen her three favorites, and two runners up. With no further delay, here they are:
Beautiful drawing and unusual blend of serpent and sloth--this is an exotic, attractive pet that would appeal to both reptile fans and those who adore furry mammals. It's calm, serene attitude implies a gentle, loving pet.
Favorite #2: TruBlueArt
I love the playfulness of this marsupial-canine hybrid--it's happy cheerful expression combined with good anatomy makes this a winner, and probably a pet that one could win a frisbee match with!
Favorite #3: shambok
Wonderful character and expression--who could resist such a jolly creature and its pup! Great technique as well as inventiveness. I love the fuzzy texture of the fur and the sly look in its eye. I wonder if it purrs!

This purple pet with its beady eyes, little legs, and rabbity ears is fiendishly funny, yet his fierce appearance belies both a gentle and brave personality. He'd be a great pet to come home to at the end of a long day, and cuddle in one's lap. Where can I buy one?
Special thanks to our pals at Wacom for donating Intuos Pro Medium tablets for the favorites, and our friends at DeviantArt for memberships for all of the chosen artists. And of course - thanks to Terryl Whitlatch for serving as our inspiration!
