My contribution to the fantastic RARE Anthro Calendar, currently in it's second year! This year's calendar highlights both some of the more well known and some of the less known about species that have gone extinct.

I managed to luck out and actually got a chance to illustrate a Homotherium, which is one of my very favorite of the sabertoothed cats. I'm not sure I managed to capture the anatomy as elegantly as I would have liked, but I was ecstatic to be able to work on something, more or less, for myself and be able to submit it to such a great project! I wish I had more time to work on this, but alas been plowed by deadlines left and right along with a lot of goings on in my life x]!

This calendar IS available for pre-sale RIGHT now, but the presales close August 31st, after which only a limited number of calendars will be available as private sales through artists. The number available after pre-sales is undetermined, so if you want to ensure owning one, please do purchase one now! Thank you to all of you in advance, ordering information is at: Order Here before Sept 1st

size: 5000x3500pixels at 300 dpi
tools: Photoshop and Intuos 3
prints: Find prints in my store at [link]
Thanks all! Im sorry my uploads seem to be more and more spaced apart! Ive been staying incredibly busy and haven't had much time for personal art between projects! I still haunt DA whenever I can, just don't have the chance to share as much as I'd like to. In anycase, miss ya all!

I love how there's that one rabbit trying to hide in plain sight.
Or, maybe it's the Homotherium's pet.
