Neck bite of a Tiger: Phase 2 by ancestorsrelic Neck bite of a Tiger: Phase 2 by ancestorsrelic
Something educational... Your are here to learn something too and not for looking only for ponies... or big and even bigger boobs, damnit ;-)

Small and medium sized prey will be killed by a tiger with a bite in the neck:
Phase 2: The teeth of the cat are crushing the neck vertebraes and cutting off the spinal cord of the prey. The victim lost its consciousness in a few seconds and die in a short time.


Two works to practising the neck bite my workflow and transparancy-settings in DS 4 Pro. Inspired by CGI-works done by "National Geographic" that i found on the WWW a few days ago. My intention was to (re)create a free version of it in much higher resolution, so it can be used, reused, mixed, shared and easy sampled down for websites, blogs, school-work, etc. Basing on real facts it shows what would happen to you, if a hungry Tiger invite you to dinner :evillaugh:

Technical side:
A clean and fast kill, done in DAZ-Studio 4 Pro and PaintShopPro X4. As all my works free to use under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike.
Working with transparancy-settings in the DAZ-Studio viewport is a pain in the *ss... You can never really see what part of an object is actually hiding another. Countless movements in the "perspective view" and testrenderings are necessary. I made two rendrings for each image of Phase 1 and Phase 2: One with the tiger and its catch, another only with the tiger and fine-tuned the blending of both in PSP X4.
The victims carotid arteries are actually made by using the tongue of my Tetradactylus-model... Another usual 3D-trick: Sometimes items can be used for totally different things as they are intentioned for.

    You know, tigers are one of our only carnivorous predators remaining in the wild. They naturally prey on humans, and have hunting tactics in some locations in the wild specifically for maintaining a healthy diet of delicious peoples! Many animals, like, lions, bears, and wolves do not eat us normally. It is very rare for them to have a taste for human flesh. But not tigers. Tigers love people!

    This is very informative and extremely interesting. Nice to see something so educational and fascinating that leans more toward the scientific or anatomic side of art and less on the kinky or spiritual ends. =3

Just the other day i watched a documentary about the tigers in the sunderban-area in india and that they are used to prey on humans. About 200 people gets eaten every year and the tiger cubs are even "teached" by their mothers to hunt on humans.
Sometimes i have the feeling, my version of DAZ-Studio shows some eerie attributes of a Death Note: Often when i create some creature feature-work that is intended more as fantasy or to be exaggerated, i got or found later some info that it is closer to reality than i thought :fear:

P.S. Thanks for the fave!

    Just try not to draw any death monsters or dragons, we don't need too many of those hanging around in reality!! =3 Very welcome, and great illustration.

Nice work Do you have a skin level version? This is instructive but I for one would love to see a completed version.

This little 2-pic-series is done for my own research too... And as you guess, to show the tiger hunting and killing sometime in the (computer-simulated) wild as well as much realistic as i can :plotting:

And it's great stuff I'm just thinking if we couls see her with complete skin it would be that much sweeter.
