Saberhands Panther by Smirtouille Saberhands Panther by Smirtouille
EDIT 5/26: I felt like drawing skeletons today so I added information to my dear beast's reference sheet.

Meet my big girl!
She's called a Saberhands panther. She is also Vampire E and the largest of my vampires.
My vampires are generally carnivorous creatures with a more or less sophisticated power to change their form into looking like humans. Some have better abilities than others.

Vampire E is gifted with the most powerful metamorphosis because she can alter her form from a complete beast to a complete human, with fully developed stages in between at each of which she can pause at will. Each stage is equally lethal as the other. She is not vulnerable at all when morphing to another stage, unlike some other of my Vampires. That is why she is also the most dangerous of all. However, morphing from one stage to another (especially from each extreme) requires an enormous amount of energy that may possibly exhaust her to death, if she did it several times in a row without eating or resting. The morphing is therefore used strategically and carefully. She will remain in a single stage for very long period of times and only morph if necessary.
Also whatever she eats can be dedicated to the last or the first of her form. Therefore she is generally an athletic and healthy beast while her human form is a weak, skinny and under-grown girl or vice versa.


Saberhands Panther Facts:
-Saberhands don't speak, even in human form. They have no written or spoken language. They still communicate in complex manners.
-There are more female Saberhands than male ones.
-The males are smaller and good-tempered. They can be tamed and befriended.
-Males get killed by females when approaching for mating.
-Females hunt and eat their own species.
-Males sing. They can be taught to dance.
-They have a possible 90 years old life span.
-Saberhands were almost successfully exterminated by Vampire A's.
-There are no individual older than 30 years old alive today.
-Saberhands can run 80 mph and smash a car by bumping into it.
-Saberhands have 8 fingers at their hands and 5 at their feet.
-They are good swimmers, their skin is smooth with no hair and craves for water.
-They eat too much and are almost extinct.
-They eat Vampires A, B, C and D.
-Their 18 dorsal fins are made of supple cartilage with a very fine cutting edge. They use it to cut their prey by rolling on the carcasses (or the living victim).

So much respect for those with enough creativity and knowledge to not only create a unique monster, but illustrate an anatomically correct skeletal model of it, too...

I really like the in-depth work you did on the creature, especially the skeleton part. However, the lower jaw doesn't have this large bony part in the beauty shot that we see in the skeleton detail.

Thanks for appreciating.
Are you referring to the part with white pigmentation on? There are other adjustments that I have been doing to this animal while exploring its anatomical details. The numbers of teeth on the skull to the top right and the skull of the skeleton, for example. I've been adjusting a couple things. :)

Well, that is freaking amazing.

And, in a way, I am glad I did not post the creature from my book, because it looks too similar to yours. But that's okay, I am not happy with mine, yours looks cooler! :XD:

Anyway, ignore all that... It's so cool!:la:
