Ambush: Smilodon and Bison Latifrons

A sunset ambush by a pack of Smilodon fatalis on a herd of Bison latifrons, the so-called ‘super bison’.

One of my fave pics, I did this on spec and sold it quickly to a private buyer.

Could have sold it several times over.

Woah. The sense of motion and life in this piece is amazing. Speed and agility vs. size and bulk! Awesome job!

Is the smilodon sucker punching the bison?
Your paleoart in general & this drawing in particular is (IMO) 1 of the best examples of "accurate awesomebro" paleoart. I'm guessing it helps that you're a comic book artist (& thus, make awesomebro things all the time).

Very interesting the texture of the fur in the bisons

Sweet! That's some great action, very extreme poses but still convincingly feline.

Thanks - much appreciated! My plan is do a more updated version - this one is about 15 years old!
