"Sabre Tooth Pounce"

Kicking up a spray of dirt, a massive smilodon, a mountain of fur and fangs, leaps out of the murky mists of time. With its muscular frame, razor sharp claws, and long curved teeth, this predator is a force to be reckoned with.

This is my latest addition to my paleoart gallery.  As always, the saber-toothed cat is one of my favorite ice age beasts, and for this artwork, I wanted to get in a bit closer to the cat and keep the environment rather minimalist.

I created this scene using digital techniques including CGI and digital painting.

Such amazing creatures. You capture the Smilodon so beautifully! Have you drawn any other prehistoric cats related to the Smilodon?
