Survival of the Cuddliest by Psithyrus Survival of the Cuddliest by Psithyrus
Yay! My first completed picture of the new year. I found some very cute photos of tiger cubs and baby elephants. They inspired this little paleo scene of two buddies. A pack of sabertooth cats were stalking a herd of mammoths, when an avalanche separated these two cubs from their parents; although natural enemies, they formed a unbreakable friendship. The duo rests safely in a warm cave as a blizzard roars outside.

Hope you like this mixed media drawing of baby smilodon and mastodon. I used pencils and acrylics, with some digital touchups.

Thanks,

Blair

Hey, would you try to do a pic like that, only with a Przewalski's Horse and a Quagga? I just thought of that, but your art talent makes it sound like it'd look better, just sayin'.

I thought of it because they're both prehistoric equines, and they'd make quite a duo, as you've done with other prehistoric animals!
