Improbable hybrids

A couple of new drawings.  Drawn for a contest over at DeviantArt.
The premise is that they are the products of genetic engineering gone wrong, the first a monstrous cross between Homos sapiens and Aquila chrysaetos, the second a more innocuous cross between two organisms whose names I can't recall at the moment.  Perhaps a polar bear and a Vidalia onion.

It is actually an interesting exercise to imagine what a hybrid between two or more distinct species might look like.  It's very difficult to avoid drawing chimeras.

The spidephant makes me nervous. How big would it be?

That would depend on how old it is, I suppose....
