Here's my second entry:
The Stava - a predator with great endurance hailing from Honoghr (home of the Noghri from the Thrawn series). The stava is mentioned in the Essential Guide to Planets and Moons
. This is the only source for a reference image, which is a black and white line drawing. The image makes the stava look essentially like a dog. I took some liberties with the image in creating this creature as a result. I chose the color based on the premise that as a predator it would have camouflage for the tall grasses of pre-contaminated Honoghr. I also thought the dog look was a bit uninspired, so building on the more reptilian nature of the Noghri, I made the stava more of a repto-mammal, while trying to keep the same basic idea as the drawing.
This particular stava is named Nhukhu and is part of a stava pack that was domesticated by the Noghri and consequently survived the catastrophe on Honoghr.
Here Nhukhu is pictured hunting with his owner Kharnubachk
Nhukhu is made from the body of a "Terra" brand (found at Target) tiger and the head of a Schleich velociraptor. I obviously added the ears and I enlarged the eyes as well.
PS - I didn't include the reference image but it can be seen on the Wookieepedia site entry for "stava."
