Daeodon, The Terrible Hog by deskridge Daeodon, The Terrible Hog by deskridge
This is not a bear, dog, or fantasy creature. It is a Daeodon, also known as Dinohyus, an ancient relative of the wild boar that lived in North America and went extinct about 18 million years ago.

I thought that boar relative was Antelodont.

Entelodont was no one species, it was a whole family.  Daoedons were the largest genus in the Entelodont family.

I saw it portrayed on one of those NOVA episodes.  Nothing I would have wanted to run into back then..

"extinct about 18 million years ago". Proving that being pretty does not count for much.

Very nice image and posing and quality of light make it real! Cool looking creature. I have never seen this offered anywhere. It isn't a DinoRaul figure that I am aware of. Where can I find it?

Seems to have a bug on the page though that shows the wrong images.

He looks like he would make a great house pet...NOT!! Let's just say, he would certainly make life really interesting if he were still around. I wonder if he came before or after the Inteledont- don't know if I spelled that correctly. At any rate, this is an awesome work! You certainly have a flair for ancient creatures. All I can say is Encore!

Whoa! Did you make that creature yourself? I'd love to get my hands on something like that.

Thanks. Whilst I do sometimes make my own models, this guy is actually a rather old one from smith micro. You can get him for about 4 bucks here: [link] However, I did spend some time in Gimp with this one sprucing up his fur, so it's not the results you'd get from rendering alone.

Ohhh! Where can I get one?
He looks snuggly.. in a semi-agressive sort of way.. He could keep burglars out of my house :)

Great image and I love that fur! I think the Dinohyus was in one of those animated "documentaries" they did :)
This one looks a bit surprised or embarrassed :D

Excellent!
I really like the vegetation, the moss covered trees, the ferns, etc. My only minor crit would go to the leafless tree in the background which could use some higher resolution in the plant editor (it has some really sharp angles). The animal looks great!

The model has the 'mohawk' section of the hair included. The rest of the fur is just an image map that I enhanced in post production using a fur brush and the smudge tool in Gimp.
