Commission - Untamed by jocarra Commission - Untamed by jocarra
For years I have wandered these lands...

Treading the cold, biting earth below me...

Enveloped in the infinite white...

A mere whisper in the storm...

And yet...

You know me.

I am that legend that lives beyond this realm...

Beyond this ice, this snow...

Past these shadowed forests...

But now, to you...

I am myth no more.

Commission for ~ArgentFatalis of his smilodon, Argent. I have a particular penchant for his kind (which I fondly refer to as "Bities") so I really enjoyed painting this one :3

The background, as is likely suspected, is mostly a photomanipulation of stock photos of rocks I took near the beach in Oroville - from semi-arid scrub desert to snowy mountain cliffs, haha. The trees are from another one of my stock photos, found here if anyone is interested :)

~8-10 hours Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Do you know which?  It's not a big deal, but I don't like them being posted if I can help it, usually.

This is amazing! Did you do all those fur strokes by hand or was it a photoshop brush?

jocarra Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks so much! The fur was done all by hand :) I generally don't use fancy PS brushes for fur.

So you have been working with the cats of America in this particular instance the saber-tooth an extinct species. This who image looks like to me a 3D rendering, just on step below full photo manipulation, the snowy rocky face to me matches the cat appearance. The landscape is very nice as I see snow field as it makes the time of the ice age, seem quite apparent so I like it, a creature of no name. :) :thumbsup:

Thank you very much :3 No 3D rendering used, although I sometimes am jealous of those who have that option available to them :b

No worries, you just need a stronger computer to render 3D, and a nice torrent, to get a 3D program, for free, LoLol

Aww, that's awful. I definitely know how that is - despite being fairly productive this month, I still haven't ever quite found my own personal inspiration again, even after two years :b But at least I'm still able to produce (I had better, or else find a "real" job real quick!) ;P

Thanks so much :)
