    concept:

    In order to protect Cupid, as he is still just a boy, the gods created this creature to give him a way to get away from all the jealous lovers he tends to create by making others fall in love. Made from the best parts of horse, bird, and lizard, it is extremely intelligent and swift, so that when Cupid's small wings fail him he can jump on the back of the creature and make a safe getaway.

    concept:
    Motile Stumpf-tumper
    These creatures are sometimes used by the Cherubic hoard as carrier birds. Cupid makes use of them as misdirected arrow fetchers.
    They are notoriusly hard to train and have a tendency to collect all of Cupids shots, good and bad. This accounts for the long periods of my life that seem devoid of female interest (it can't be my fault). Cupid became so frustrated with his pet that in the 60's he switched breifly to an iguana. The iguana's inability to fetch even a single arrow resulted in what is now refered to as a "groovy scene, baby!"

    The Lovorrowmus
    These creatures create pure love from the airvents in the heads. If u take a closer look u'll notice it's even shapped like a heart
    Cupid keeps one of these to load his arrows with love.
    Before flying of to work, he holds the arrows in the smoke coming from snookums (that is what he called him) head. This way they are charged with love, and cupid can get to work.

    Cupids pet for over a decade. Isn't very house-trained yet and doesn't listen at all but when he puts up those big bleu eyes you just gotta love him. He hates his name and doesn't want to be cuddled or taped on the head, then he bites.

    concept:

    I envisioned cupids pet at first fuzzy and nice, much like everyone else did. But cupid is kind of a nice guy too. So I went with this demon gorilla thing. Why? Well I feel cupid needed something that contrasted him. Something that could protect him. And something to straighten out anyone who did not fall in love from cupids arrow. You see from time to time people defy cupid, and as such his pet has to come in and either eat their soul (hence the green ethrall mucus coming from his mouth) or scare them into following orders. Because cupid knows that if people do not fall in love from his arrow, his credibility amongst other mythical beings is gone. Think of the chains like his leash. Cause I am sure you would not want cupids pet chasing your car down the street

    concept:
    Cubit
    Cupid's pet, Cubit, stands at most a foot high, two feet if you include the wings. Made of sparkly love, and fluffy tenderness, this shiny-eyed fluff stands in front of Cupid's hapless victims and slowly waves its wings back and forth, disarming them with cuteness, and stupefying their minds, giving Cupid plenty of time to shoot his arrows.
    One can always tell when Cubit has been around from the heart-shaped footprints it leaves. With two toes, and a pointed heel, it hops from one foot to the other when on the ground. Other times it seems to float at eye-level, leaving a trail of good natured sparkly Cubit dust behind. Cupid says he's been trying to find a shampoo to fix the dander...

    Aphrodisiac Imp
    These troublesome creatures would have been banished to Hades long ago, if it wasn't for their close relationship to Cupid. These flying Imps constantly secrete an ooze from thier underside that is the most powerful aphrodisiac in all the worlds. This potion is so powerful it defies all laws of natural attraction. Once in the victims blood the next living thing it sees it falls madly and blindly in love /lust with. This spans all species and Known races. This love elixir even effects the gods. That is why they are kept under careful watch and not allowed to run amok. Cupid of course uses the secretion on the tips of his arrows.

    My snout is long in celebration of Phallus.
    I carry a collar like the fruits of heaven,
    Symbolic wings for the sake of soaring romance.
    In blindness, like all Love’s victims, I walk.
    My tongue seeks sensual the path to tread,
    When to Cupid, my master’s call,
    I return his golden arrows.
    I am Cupilion,
    And in canine grace, I’ll make your heart bleed.

    artist: Irish_Jim
    concept:
    Petunia
    Rarely seen by human eyes, this mysterious animals appears to be the only one of its species on earth. Kept by Aphrodite's assistant Cupid, "Petunia" as she is called was originally enlisted to carry an extra quiver of arrows for Cupid. Ddue to the smaller size of her wings (which are barely adequate for Petunia's sole body weight) and her excellent stealth skills this task was soon abandoned in favor of arrow retrieval. Gifted with a prehensile tail, dual opposable digits on the forepaws, and velvety-soft silencing pads on all four feet, she is surprisingly mobile and undetectable for a bright pink mammal.
    Cupid's arrows, although extremely important to the species, are not only finite in number but far too powerful to leave laying about. Unfortunately, leaving one stuck in the heart of a victim for too long will not only sour the love that it created, it can lead to awkward situations like burning your name into the front lawn of the object of your over-affection. However, the spell on an arrow will be broken if the victim knows what hit him, so the discretion and stealthiness of Petunia has helped to bring Cupid's productivity up nearly forty percent since her enlistment.

    concept:

    Eros greatly disapproved of Kratos' killing spree of the great Pantheon one by one. He knew he was no match for the Fallen Spartan so he attempted to buy Kratos' favor by gifting him his most favored pet, the Sulhana Delphinim.
    The beautiful magenta steed was born of a coupling of a lovely Sea Nymph in the form of a swan and one of the followers of Aphrodite. Sulhana can and does fly. Sporting a thirty foot wingspan, it takes great pleasure in diving and playing in the air. It's happy chirping song is renowned for lulling victims into a deeply powerful trance of love. Those affected by the Sulhana-song become Love zombies, which can be some of the most dangerous creatures to deal with, for a person in love knows no bounds.
    Sulhana Delphinim lives close to the shore forever diving and gliding along the briny surf, floating on the air currents just above the waves like a seagull or frigate. It eats fish and small sea birds as it flies happily over the waves and it can pump it's powerful wings to take it high into the clouds, where it playfully spins and prances it's happy go lucky existence.
    Of course, Kratos was disgusted with the 'weakness' displayed by the frightened Eros in his gifting, but far more infuriating for the Spartan was the chirping gaudy flying creature. It's cuteness so enraged the fallen god, that he tore it in half from the jaw, rending the beautiful purple and pink flesh into nothing more than rainbow colored chum. Kratos punished Eros for his candor by leaving the young god of love in his Masturbatorium looking like a pin cushion having been penetrated by every single one of his arrows... and his bow.

    concept:
    Amorus Vermis - the Love Bug
    This critter is one of the very few remaining of Love Bugs that originate from the mountaintops around famed Shangri-la.
    Concidered extremely dangerous, the Love Bug has a poison that will kill a fit adult within half an hour by arousing them.
    Unknown to most, the species was actually the main reason for the Shangri-la-ites friendly behaviour. In very small dosages the poison will create a sensation of strong friendship, or even love, to one another, and this was what happened- the poison of the Love Bug would mix with the melting ice of the mountaintops and stream down to form the fresh water from which the people would drink.
    Cupid, upon finding one of these, found that they where dying out. Extensive hunting to eradicate the "threat" had made the bug scarce.
    He now holds George in a golden cage, that he hangs on clouds as he works. But every now and then, he will reurn and let the poison of George's coat the arrows, just enough to create love...

    Portrayed here in his teen years; he will eventually become a giant, part ways with Cupid and become known as the vengeance of the broken hearted-Ekdikisi.

    scrupulous and really slow, they never waste arrow, but they give the love which is the strongest and immortal.

    Robert has been Cupid's pet since it was a young Pupp. not too bright yet highly trainable, it eventually became Cupid's little helper. tagging along on the daily routine missions, Robert (Bobby) just hangs around, taking over on those killer Morning shifts, or whenever The Boss had one of those nasty after lunch (burritos and Tequila) stomach "flus".
    And being a Chusma-ta-quala, the naturally friendly and happy-go-lucky breed that it is -
    Robert doesn't really mind.

    concept:

    When Cupid turned six years old, he was given a gift from his two loving parents. The boy, yet still unable to fly (They flew when they were ten of course), was given a creature of such. This creature, named the Gizo's, was a special type of four legged feline. Nor cat, nor tiger, nor lion, but a type of hyprid fantasy mix. It had these tiny wings, that shot form it's shoulders, and ears that could grow to 1 foot long. His ears we're used to hear the giggeling and flirting from far off of those who saught out love. A very rare animal, only suited for a very rare type of child.
    Cupid and his pet, which he named, Magi, quickly became bestfriends. They we're always together, whether it was playing or getting 'work' done. Although tales have been rumored to what Magi could become when he's older.

    Amor
    Not only Cupid's pet, but it's best friend. This creature that strongly resembles a rabbit goes along with Cupid on all of it's trips and helps at times carrying it's arrows with it's little mouth. The golding markings and garnment(?) helps identify the creature as Cupid's pet to the other gods and humans and symbolizes love and peace in three different ancient hieroglyphics. When Cupid has free time, it and the creature both go out flying through the sky and looking at romantic couples fall in love; basically sitting back and seeing their magic work.

    Moist Toad. turpis amor
    Living high up among the clouds, the moist toad is one poisonous critter. It lives off the moist in the clouds where it gather and process the water to extract various substances from it, producing both gases which enables it to float and poisons which Cupid more then happy uses for his needs. However, depending on what ends up in the water, the poisons varies. To make a long story short, you can blame the moist toad and Cupid for pretty much everything that happens around the world. Be it good or bad.

    concept:
    Steve
    Cupid's lovable pet, Steve, had been around for years, but disappeared suddenly in the late 90's. He hasn't been seen since, and Cupid has never been the same since, leading some to believe that's where all the love in the world went. Cupid still blames his cousin Marvin (who was watching Steve at the time) for his disappearance. Some believe that there was a conspiracy by the major toy manufacturers to abduct Steve. These conspiracy theorists point to the fact that toys resembling Steve appeared on the market shortly after his disappearance. It was also odd that Cupid's cousin came across a large sum of money which he said he won at the track. To this day the debate still goes on as to what happened to Cupid's pet.

    artist: longwrat
    concept:

    The LURT are born beasts of the ground, the young only the size of guinea pigs and very adorable. To see one would be love at first sight. The lurt does not bond very easily, and to earn its trust would require much patience and plentiful amounts of its favourite food; the warmest feelings of love. Even if the lurt may thrive during the beginning of its relationship between itself and its master, tragically it would soon fade and die if the master bores of it. The average lifespan of a lurt can range between 2 years to well over 50. Its unique requirements and sensitive nature make it a very difficult beast to keep.
    The lurt feeds via a pair of peculiar organs which extend from their shoulder blades to the base of the tail and hang freely at its sides. These rubbery appendages filter in the surrounding air, and sift out emotions and feelings from its surroundings. It is easy to tell when the lurt is busy feeding, these 'filters' will pump furiously and occasionaly vapours can be seen emitting from the ends. These vapours are only produced if the feelings of love in the area are especially potent.
    One very special Lurt stands out amongst all others. This lurt is by far the largest and oldest lurt ever recorded anywhere. Named ARK, he belongs to the god of love Cupid. Ark has grown to epic proportions, having never once stopped feeding since Cupid first got him as a pup. Just as the feelings of love makes one soar, so has Ark been able to glide through the skies, an ability only possible with a rich and readily available diet of love. Ark always remains near to his beloved master.
    Ark's favourite time of the day is when his master finishes another hard day of work and takes his nap on his soft furry belly. In bliss, Ark would lazily glide along, protecting his master and puffing out little clouds as he goes.

    concept:

    Dubbed McQuivvers by Cupid this little fella is inseparable from everyones favorite cherub. But why you ask? Well thats quite simple, you don't really think Cupid makes all of those love arrows by hand do you?
    You see, while the feather like fur on top of McQuivvers' head may be soft and cuddly, as you follow the hairs on back towards his tail you'll find that they grow increasingly longer and more rigid. Once matured these hairs will actually become easily detachable from his skin, bringing along a little something special.
    Inside of McQuivvers' hair glands resides a natural aphrodisiac secretion, all it takes is the few drops that now saturate the fibers of the quill to get the ol' sexu- err amorous feelings flowing through the victim. A curious defense mechanism in nature, but a powerful god-tool in practice.

    concept:

    The name, Cupid's pet, has its origins in the peculiar mating habits of the creature: all members of this species are male and in order to reproduce, will mate with any available and appropriately sized female. In order to attract females of other species and dupe them into mating, male Cupid's pets secrete a potent sex-attractant pheromone. All offspring born from such unions carry only the genes of their father, since this species is haploid, and females merely act as surrogates for the embryo. This pheromone is so potent, that it has been used for centuries as an aphrodisiac by humans, and the creature that produces it often appears in myths and illustrations as Cupid's constant companion, hence the name, Cupid's pet.

These creatures are searching for people who are ready to love somebody. They are like pigs looking for truffles. When they find a heart ready to love they sing for this person. Their song wind around the heart, marking it as a target for Cupids arrow.

    While the gesture was born of good intentions, the loss of targets resulted in couplings too bizare for discription. A Blue-Tipped Faryl by the name of Artemesia was summoned to confirm that Cupid's arrows did indeed reach human flesh. Loyalty to her master far exeeded this simple task however, as she provided not only a guide for his arrows but for his path as well. She became an extention of his will.

    concept:

    “Hex” (as Cupid calls him) is a hexagonerian, a rare six legged spawn of the quadragonerian family. The chances of finding a 6 legged quadragonerian are roughly 1000000 to .0000001, or equal to the chances of finding true love that lasts a lifetime the first time around. Cupid couldn’t help but fall for “Hex” based on those stats alone. But that’s not the only reason… hexagonerian are specifically in tune with pheromone’s, aura’s and all other manner of human kind’s “love vibes” so having Hex around is a big help for Cupid as he can sense when a person or couple is “ripe” for love. Hex will “sprinkle” said target with some… well, there’s no way to spin this that will sound good so here goes, urine. Happily for the “ripe” target hexogonerian’s urine is excreted as a mist and smells like lavender. Cupid can then hone in on the target and fire away. Hex’s other duties include puncturing condoms with his claws, misting wedding parties and sharpening Cupid’s arrows.

    concept:
    Amoralis
    The Amoralis is a creature whose design is so weird that normal persons can’t see it. The race evolved from the dinosaurs several million years ago, the comet might have wiped out most of them but this little bugger survived since its natural food and territory aren’t restricted by climate, height or depth. The Amoralis feeds of the human emotion, whether they are good or bad feelings. The processing of eating a emotion is fairly slow, as we notice how a state of happiness or sadness diminish we can tell that there is a Amoralis nearby feeding on them. This however is of little problems to humans as we can constantly produce emotions.
    Two or three million years ago the species was discovered by early human and ape Gods, by then the Gods were crude and undefined but there still were some Gods representing love and compassion. These Gods have evolved into a weird divine creature in the shape of a nude, slightly overweight child, the Cupids. These gods tamed the Amoralis for their ability to track and mark people that could fall in love. The cupids then track the scent back to the would-be-lovers and fire a few arrows.
    The Amoralis have a very sensitive snout which they use to sniff out the emotions the Cupids have trained them to find. When the ‘prey’ is found cuddling somewhere the Amoralis turn their back on them and urninate to mark the humans as part of their herd. Couples usually notice this as a brief rain and a smell of flowers or sweetness.
    On their backs they have silly, little deranged wings that evolution haven’t yet chosen to get rid of, whose only function is for the Cupids to hold on to if they need a ride. Long elegant legs give the Amoralis the ability to cover great distance in little time.
    At the end of its tail is a heart formed tip. The tip gets swollen and turned purple during mating seasons. Furthermore, the Amoralis have no natural enemies since their species existence is neglected by all other species as well as humans.

    I didn't write any reasons for rejection for the last round. I added them in the last post of the poll thread, in case you're interested here they are:

    For this round there are no special reasons, rejected pieces are unfinished or not good enough

    This was tough, lots of good entries.

    I voted for cannibalcandy because the rendering on the creature was superb - love the gold accents! The description was fun and interesting as well.

    Marco Mazzoni (if I'm spelling your name wrong, I'm sorry) was a very close second. Love the organic look and coloring of the creature. Nice.

    A lot of good entries, with many hard choices. I ended up voting for Cloister (explained below), but it was a difficult decision!

    Cloister - I actually liked the second incarnation better, rather than this third one with the shadow of Cupid. I love the skin color, and how you've worked with light and shadow, especially the little flecks of gold and red embers. All in all a very serene piece.

    Cannibalcandy - The colors were superb, and the armor really made it, but it just bothered me that it was so dolphin-like. I agree with your historical concept, as far as "head of this, tail of that" that the Greeks and Romans loved so much, but...

    Adonihs - The floppy ears were cute! The small, glassy eyes, along with the chin-beads - very nice - it screams "Pet me!"

    Bluefooted - the old-style wood-cut was really working for me. The high amount of detail...drool...

    Marco Mazzoni - One heck of a kick-ass pet. I liked how you worked the light/shadow.

    Bluefooted: I thought you had an outstanding illustration, but it didn't feel as close to the title of Cupid's Pet necessarily. Inspiring image really, your style is one of my favorites on here... unique with rich colors.

    Cannibalcandy: You got my vote, from the very beginning it looked like an animal that might appear in greek mythology or something. The colors, layout and gentle creature seems like something Cupid would have around. The ornate jewelry was a nice touch

    Dragonforlunch: I loved your scene, and your animal...but the background owl and border distracted my eyes from the creature itself. He's an interesting design, I've been noticing you improving each round. Great stuff!

    SuperV: You know I'm a big fan of yours I laughed at this guy. The flying pig was well executed, and would have had my vote if not for a couple other really strong ones making my decision difficult.

    JakkaS: Really interesting creature, it seems like you have an entire new planet in your mind... as your stuff always stays consistently believable yet alien. He looks like he might ignore cupid to graze in the pastures though lol.

    Chuck,mate.: Maaan, I love your work Every submission on any challenge brings a smile to my face. You always put enough detail and humor and character to sell the picture. Just fun!

    Marco Mazzoni: This guy is sweet! Reminded my wife of He-Man's pet tiger! I loved everything but the color on the beast to be honest. I loved your back story.

    jfwalls: Hahahaha... you're description! Dude I had an awesome laugh from your entry, when you posted "oh its just a furby." Cute.

    JLAlfaro: Really honorable entry, it feels like he'd make a great pet for Cupid. I like the design.

    Lots of other interesting ones, Joey-b keep on improving man you've come a long way already Penumbra I liked your render, but I'd have loved to have seen him tie into Cupid in another way other than holding arrows. navarrot really pleasing style, interesting two people chose the flying pig! Thalion My wife loves yours, but is he stealing Cupid's Job?! hehe. wizo5454 Cute little creature, I really enjoyed stopping to look at this one. Maybe some more color variation on his fur and lighting could have really popped him out of the scene. Nice gentle pet though.

    Cannibalcandy: My favourite one almost from the moment I saw it, thus it got my vote. I agree with Frostdrake that it seems a little too dolphin-like, but I voted for it anyway because the exocution was superb.

    Bluefooted: My second favourite, and I think best actual creature design, just doesn't fit the theme as well as cannibalcandy's did.

    Chuck,mate.: Third favourite. Really cute and funny, just didn't hit me quite as hard as the other two did. I love the expression on his face.

    It's too bad mine didn't make it, but I didn't expect it too. I'll work harder next time!
