Skull of Dinictis by Qilong Skull of Dinictis by Qilong
My favorite sabretoothed feline, Dinictis squalidens ("shark-toothed terrible biter"), has a curious and short skull. Done from several specimens, this is a sort of "generic" skull.

I don't really try to compare my art to anyone else's, so yours is just fine. Mine is, if anything, substandard and heavily in need of improvement (new style, method of rendering, etc.).

And yes, i know is closer to nimravids than felids, but both are feliform carnivorans, and that's "cat-like" enough for me :)

Glad you like it.

Yes, which is why I only call it "kitty" in general.

Nice scientific illustration (as if I expected anything less from you). =) You've captured the grace of the feline skull very well. And has anyone ever told you you have nice penmanship?

Thanks. It is a beautiful skull, and I've always liked my buck-toothed Dini.

People comment on my tiny hand-writing, which just developed with the need to cram a lot in a small space. I think penmanship is a dying art, and the need to keep up my hand keeps me writing in notebooks.

nice job you should work in this area for drawing the bones of dinossaurs and other mamals

Thank you. And in fact, I do draw bones and other things. These are more of my less scientific stuff, things I did for myself....
