Smilodon by LUNAtic-36 Smilodon by LUNAtic-36
Roar!!

Because smilodons are awesome.

I would post links to the references I used, but I used like a BAGILLION. Tigers, lions, cougars, house cats and extinct kitty skulls all went into this. It was crazy.

(I wish I had blended out those big teeth before I scanned this, but I don't wanna rescan the fixed version so pttht)

Edit: This guy has a background now! I will scan him again when I can.

the biggest cat that ever lived. weighing up to 1300 pounds, this was an assassin among cats. smilodon had a weak bite, but this was little matter to a cat with 9 inch teeth. it was a pack-hunter and behaved like wolves do today. no animal was safe from Smilodon.

very nice i particularly like the tongue, but as a composition have you thought about what to do for the background?

I thought about putting simple landscape, like a plain or savannah in the background, but I didn't want to distract from the scary kitty. I may go back and add to this, though.

i agree whatever you do keep it simple, you've got a strong focal point and you dont need to loose that.
i would think something blurred and subtle, like the animal i in focus, while the background isnt.
