A new picture to Fairy Tail.

You can see the five Dragon Slayers of the 1st and 3rd generation: Natsu Dragneel, Gajeel Redfox, Wendy Marvell, Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney in their Dragon Force. They are also standing in front of the Eclipse gate. I think you will understand why I choosed the Eclipse gate as background.

It was a really hard job again to draw this picture. This was so much work but I love it! And I also love the background. I hope you will appreciate this hard work.

I always wanted to draw a picture with all these five Dragon Slayers in their Dragon Force. But always Gajeel was missing. I drew this picture one week before Gajeel got his Dragon Force. I think I had the right feeling that Gajeel would get his Dragon Force very soon.

I hope you like it!

We’re all used to the common depiction of sabertoothed cats like the famous Smilodon. A fairly standard-looking feline face with protruding teeth, something like this:

It’s a look so ingrained in paleoart and pop culture that it’s even become visual shorthand for making cartoon creature designs look “prehistoric”.

Except… it might be completely wrong.

We’ve all been assuming that these saberteeth were basically tusks, like those we see in modern animals such as walruses and elephants. But it turns out that tusks have a very different chemical structure to normal teeth so they can withstand constant exposure to the environment – and Smilodon’s fangs don’t show any of those adaptations.

There’s a detailed explanation of this idea and the science behind it over at this blog post. It isn’t an academically published theory yet (although I’d love to see somebody do a proper study), but it’s still very plausible and interesting to think about.

The tl;dr version: it’s actually more likely that Smilodon covered its teeth with big jowly lips to protect them. Which means it probably looked like a feline version of a St. Bernard. Or… sort of like Chester Cheetah.
