But after much long review and discussion, the panel has picked maggock's entry:
Congratulations, Maggock!! Stay tuned for a Very Special Email from the lowly Bestiary lackey (me), who will tell you what you've won.
(For those of you not familiar with LJ, you click the bit that says "the winner" etc etc etc to open the LJ cut and see what's underneath)
Thanks again, everybody who submitted and commented. Truly wonderful work! :>
