Saber-Tooth on a Rock by deskridge Saber-Tooth on a Rock by deskridge

..............................:buymyprints:..............................

A smilodon sits on a rock outcropping surrounded by golden fall fields. Looking down into the dense grass, he sees something he doesn't like. He snarls and bears his wicked teeth as something threatens him from below.

This one is a bit more simple than my usual scenes. It started out because I decided that I did not have enough casual long-sleeve shirts for the winter. So, I decided to make one featuring one of my favorite paleo animals. It really wound up not working well for a shirt, but I rather like the way it turned out as a general artwork.


Note this scene uses purchased content. The cat was posed in poser then imported into Vue where the rest of the scene was constructed. Final rendering was done in Vue and took about 24 hours on an Intel I5 2.8 GHz with 8 GB of RAM. Post production was also done in GIMP.

Thanks for looking!
Daniel

There was a time where people like us were hunted by animals like this.

Very cool! I would imagine these cats were just spectacular, wouldn't you love to time travel and see them in the flesh? Protected of course ;-P
