Ancient King in a Modern Realm by Art-of-Sekhmet Ancient King in a Modern Realm by Art-of-Sekhmet

Finished Commission for argent-fatalis of his sentient smilodon character Argent.
(I actually really appreciate your critique guys(major thanks), but if you want to leave some please note it to me out of consideration for my customer. Thanks!)

A very fun subject, as I am a big fan of prehistoric creatures. Despite Argent being a very large Smilodon Fatalis, it was fun to try to piece together a reconstruction of this extinct animal.

This painting was fun to work on! It gave me a chance to practice my digital painting, lighting and landscapes.

Endless thanks to Balaa for her wonderful advice! :) It was insanely helpful. Now if I could only procure an industry standard screen of awesomeness, it would make the task of digital painting slightly easier X3

Hope you like it argent!
Thanks for looking everyone.
