Very nice.
The entelodont is sorta reminding me of that boar god from princess mononoke :)

Hopefully, without the poison musketballs, of course.

Beautiful illustration of both species! Are the helohyids in any way related to the modern capybaras?

No, helohyids are more closely related to hippos+whales+pigs+entelodonts than they are to rodents. Rodents, in fact, would be more closely related to (rabbits and) primates than they are to helohyids.
