Smilodon by ClausThomsen Smilodon by ClausThomsen
Smilodon Fatalis.

My first attempt at drawing prehistoric animals. I've started out with coloured pencils. We all have to start somewhere, right?

We do all indeed need to start somewhere and coloured pencils is as good a place as any! It's a good piece and captures the power of Smilodon well.

What is the difference between the smilodon and other prehistoric tooth-saber cats?

Lot's of people don't realize these things looked more like bears than like cats. Good job. ;)

Hi Blue-Uncia

Thanks for your comment (it is a few month old by now, but I don't visit this site very often).

I feel sorry to read about your cat. I lost my own cat in 2008, and I think what you wrote about the experience was very precise.

best wishes for the new year

regards Claus

You're welcome. ;)


Thanks for your sympathy. Losing a pet is like losing a family member, and in this case Tiger was also my bed-buddy. We always slept together. So it's strange to have him gone. I'm sure you must know what it's like. Part of me still has some trouble believing it, I think.

But like I said, thanks. Best wishes to you too.

Remember, there is always a lot of cats out there who urgently needs a good home. They can't replace the one you've lost (no two cats are the same), but perhaps you should consider it anyway - you would be doing it a favour.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I love cats and I know I will have cats again in the future. I just can't bring myself to get one right now, a week after losing my first one. That would feel awkward. I just need some more time.

But thanks. :)
