Smi-Sma-Smilodon by BloodhoundOmega Smi-Sma-Smilodon by BloodhoundOmega
Smilodon Fatalis is a name for felines, that equals Max Power for humans. XD

Another small piece for AC, hence the lack of details, I guess. It hurts my hand to work on such a scale, when I try to add the same detail to it as to my larger work.

It's been ages since I last drew a sabretooth tiger... 10 years or so. They are such spiffy creatures though. :D

Inspired by the art of the incredible :iconbalaa:

Wonderful artwork; just the way I would expect the mighty saber-toothed cat to look.

Hi, can I use this as a reference ?

Well, in general I'd say yes, if the result in the end is non commercial and not too closely leaned on my piece? :) May I ask what exactly you have in mind?

Basicly I am planing converting it to a lion and create something like this : mufasa111.deviantart.com/art/A…
I will use only body lines and pose from your picture.

Smilodon Fatalis (deadly knife tooth). It's 7 inch sabers give it that name. It's bob cat tail ment that it could not turn in a hunt chase. It could not run down a kill, so it used stealth to get close to it then wreastle it down to the ground using its hooked thumb claw to hold onto its prey while its large limb muscles wreastled it to the ground. Its sabers were SO fragile and delicate, that it could not bite into bone or hold onto its prey with its jaws. It would first weaken the animal from blood lost and hold it down under the mass of its body. Once the prey is fully submerged, then it would drive its sabers into the neck of its victim closing the windpipe and sufficating its prey. If you want to know more about saber tooth cats, just ask me.
LOVE YOUR ART !!

The original has been sold at last Anthro Con, but I might be able to send prints to my art agent next year. But if you check the "Felines" sections there --> [link] I still have two prints of it left at home.
