So here is my entry, after a long time contemplating what to do!

Description of drawing:
Hell is closely associated with death and suffering, hence the almost skeletal/decomposing state. The front legs are actually useless, due to be small and fragile, therefore are only used for picking up small prey. The blades are welded into the bones themselves and are neigh-on unbreakable. They are used for, not only battle and to cause damage, but to also walk on.
This one's hind leg was torn of when fighting with it's pack Alpha for the highest position and he lost -- they often go for the limbs as, as mentioned before, they are exceptionally fragile and can be broken/torn off easily.
The chains are embedded directly into it's wings and remaining flesh, causing it eternal pain, placing it into a rage like state, therefore causing it to be even more vicious and unforgiving.
The wings, though looking useless, are in reality extremely strong. Masters of these hounds often chain many of these creatures together, forming a sleigh. They have been seen to fly in the human world at night, with their masters, and were the main instigators of the misconception of "Santa Clause" and his reindeer. In reality...it was not sweet little carrot munching reindeer they saw, but these terrible, skull crunching, creatures they saw flying through the skies.
Hope you like these, they're a little dark for my liking but hey-ho!
