About this cartoon...
This ferocious sabre tooth tiger is better known as Smilodon, who roamed the plains of America during the Pleistocene era some 10,000 years ago.
Smilodon had a very robust build for a sabre tooth tiger, with particularly strong forelimbs and oversized canine teeth; perfect for a precision kill.
Luckily for you, this one has already eaten – although I think he might be partial to a nice chunk of Mammoth!
Creating my sabre tooth tiger cartoon
As with many of my cartoon characters, this sabre toothed beastie cartoon began as a pencil sketch.
Once I had a pose and composition I was happy with, the next stage was digitisation.
Outlines are created first and then base colours added. I went with similar colours to today’s big cats.
I then created a little earthen mound for him to stand upon, proud as punch!
