Survival of the Cuddliest, Smilodon fatalis family by Psithyrus Survival of the Cuddliest, Smilodon fatalis family by Psithyrus
Wooo, this is perhaps the most detail I have ever rendered in a picture. It's a sequel to my first smilodon picture "survival of the cuddliest". A mother Smilodon fatalis is helping groom her cub, just to be sure he cleans behind his ears. I hope you like this cute arctic saber tooth cat family.

Thanks,

Blair

The texture is amazing, I don't know how you do it but the fur is so realistic.

Not only the cuddliest, but also one of the most majestic and beautiful reconstructions of smilodon I've seen. Bet this is pretty much what they looked like.

Hah, I actually never thought of them like that, probably because they're usually portrayed as bloodthirsty predators rather than loving mothers. I can count the hairs on this one. Not that I'm going to of course. :D

Amazing. :)

The scene is really impressive, as usual :)
Bones is a sign of... hunting, hunger, surviving... very detailed, indeed ;)
Textures on the rocks are great. Good job!
I like both... mother and child in such a lovely attitude. They're full. Besides, I love Smilodons ^^
Superb job on the poses and fur.

I love how you made this look so adorable despite all those bones from dead animals all over the place, it gives this piece a very interesting contrast: the love and care of the mother Smilidon for her cub vs. their deadlines as hunters. Love this <3
