Sabretooth by AxelMedellin Sabretooth by AxelMedellin
This was an odd one... they actually wanted a photorealistic sabretooth tiger. Which this isn't, but it was as good as it got...

I honestly never want to spent two full days again drawing hair...

I think that I would have the most trouble coloring the tongue and and the.. yes.. hair. But it turned out amazing. I dont know but something about it makes me think of a dog.. I dont know what tho

Actually, I stared at it for so long on the screen that it did'n look like any known animal to me at the end... that's work.

Heh, that is kinda strange. I'd expect that with enough advertising your art work could be used in sci-fi books, but sci-fi doesn't seem to be doing very well at the moment ;_;

The problem with sci-fi is that there's a lot of it and not a lot of readers... I love it, and even I don't read much lately... anyway, if I wanted to be rich I would have been a stock manager :P

Thatone is great again! It's very realistic, the theeth-texture, the hairs, the tongue - just the eye seems a bit out of place for me, as if it be made from glass :shrug: perhaps just me...
