If you click on the image it gets bigger!

So I was toying around with the idea of the evolved dinosauroid first invisioned by Dale Russell. The dinosauroid was based on the idea that dinosaurs did not go extinct and what would one species possible evolve into? In the original case it was a troodon. But I decided to leave the mammals alone and have the dinosaurs coexist with them. So if the dinosauroid did evolve what interesting and new thing could I do? Well I decided on a sort of human mimic like the movie Mimic. Something that looks similar to a human from a distance but once you're in close...

So I took a basic deinonychus, I changed feathers to hair and kept the neat tail. It looks more human than the original dinosauroid and is a little more current since he has feathers. This was for an idea I had with some neato Neanderthals, and both the dinosauroid and the Neanderthals were shape-changers! Spooky yes? It's kind of like the origin of the lycanthropy mythos I so love. Of course I wrote nothing down and have forgot most of it so it's just a sketch now. I do that a lot:) I do have some more stuff that I drew, maybe I'll get to scanning it and posting it.

Jess is making dog food so I can't work (the dogs get spazzy and smash into everything, but it's usually my drawing table; which, while I draw on it, is just a table.) I'm planning on watching stuff on the Science Channel tonight. Psych was renewed for a second season, as was Eureka. Scifi Channel's been playing Special Unit 2 on Fridays which I find quite funny. I don't watch Heros, just don't like the superhero stories that much anymore. I might be going to a few cons this year. If things get finalized I'll post info. I hate to fly, I get intense pain in my inner ears (and no chewing gum does not help) so any plane ride is a bit like mild torture.

First Post!

Thylacoleo. Click for bigger version.

The thylacoleo, or more commonly know as the marsupial lion, is thought to have gone extinct 50,000 years ago. As you can see they have an odd dentition. They don't have the typical fangs of a predator. They have enlarged incisors like a rat, but the premolars have evolved into shearing blades to help take meat off the bone. After doing some research I found some 'descriptions' from a cryptozoology site. Now I'm not saying the possibility of these things surviving doesn't exist, I'm saying it's slim. But from what I found, they are said to have sort of a reverse pattern thylacine and be either grey or yellow. As you can see we chose white!

I've wanted to do one of these guys for years but only recently got the reference for it.
