Tutorial: Bison latifrons and smilodon attack!…

Whatever strange google search drove you here, (Or maybe you have strong opinions on the Late Pleistocene, how am I to know what goes on in that head?) I'm looking at some big cats. Smilodon fatalis and their lunch, bison latifrons. Because the internet needed more cats on it. Let me list the ways...

A new painting tutorial with step by step examples of how we go from goofy slops of colour on an iPad to a finished skeleton painting. Cheers!

To sum up the last few months, another book is in the works.  By way of thank you to everyone, I'm in the process of building This site is an ongoing labor of love, in efforts to share many of the tips and techniques an equine artist should have.  Many of the tutorials can also be viewed here on Deviant Art or in my books, but posting them all in one place for easy, accessible, and most importantly, free access just seemed right.  Also, that's just the sort of financial mastermind I am.

So I hope you like it, or at least, like the parts I've managed to finish so far.  Chances are you won't get hurt, or not hurt bad anyway, and if you're really brave, you can drop me a line with requests or questions.  I'm usually responsive although, no guarantees on making any sense.

Thank you, thank you, and thank you all again.  Seriously.  I mean it.  For the support, laughing with me, or at me, and making it all possible.

Hello, I just now found your deviantart but i knew you for the HTDH page, and wanted to stop by to tell you THANK YOU so much!!! your drawings have being a great resource for me and have helped me A LOT in understanding how the whole horse-machine works! I look foreward to when I will be able to make myself a paypal and be able to buy your book.
Please keep drawing these beautifull animals as you do now!
PD: I was curious to know if perhaps you draw so well because you own a horse of your own.
PPD: sorry for the terrible english.

Thanks for having done all the horse tutorials. It's hard to find ones that have proper conformation/proportions. I'm not taking art classes from school anymore and I don't have enough money to pay for expensive programs or any type of schooling or a lot of books on art, so I really appreciate anyone who makes tutorials like this because it helps me learn and develop my skills.
