Understanding the Late Pleistocene: Cave Lion
The Cave Lion
(Panthera spelaea spelaea)

Taxonomy and Relationships:

Cave lions, also known as Northern or steppe lions, lie within the big cat genus of Panthera along with the extinct American lions (P. atrox) and also lions (P. leo), leopards (P. pardus), snow leopards (P. uncia), jaguars (P. onca), and tigers (P. tigris). They’re now usually agreed to be a separate species than lions, being classified as Panthera spelaea, based on both considerable morphological and phylogenetic studies. Lions remain the cave lion’s closest living relative nonetheless. [1]
The early to middle Pleistocene Panthera spelaea fossilis is the direct ancestor of the cave lion which evolved in Eurasia about 700,000 years ago. The climate it lived in was warmer than that of the later cave lion and it was larger. [2] Its status as subspecies instead of a full species (P. fossilis) is deb

You know how some artists on DA have their own OCs or personal favorite creature designs they draw countless times? I think I may have found mine. Nothing terribly unique, I've seen similar designs before, but I just really dig this one. Perfect blend of Carnosaur, Bird-of-Prey, and big cat (behavior & flexibility).

Coworker made a joke on pronouncing "Allosaurus" as "Owl-osaurus", thus the Griffon-esque theropod was borne.
Smilodon populator
I absolutely love big cats but never draw them. So today I attempted to draw a Smilodon, one of the coolest cats to have existed. Their bulk and proportions are so damn cool, man.
Coat coloration is based on the BBC's Walking With Beasts interpretation (cuz I  luv it, fight me), but with a really short coat similar to that of Jaguars (something we rarely see).
Spinosaurus Juvie
Babu Spino drawn for fun. Heard about the new spinosaurid toe claw found in Morocco so it got me thinkin' about juvie dinosaurs. Always wondered how they might've looked like since the adults had such ridiculous features like the sail. Wanted to go for a more bright and colorful illustration.
Dinosaur Sketches
Dinosaur sketches done for private commission (18 of the $20 sketches). Some of em were done on a few Twitch streams.

Godzilla Sketches
Felt like drawing Godzilla but took inspiration from the vintage 50's - 80's dinosaur illustrations (hunched back, round head, etc). Really love those old reconstructions

I have a passion for animals and prehistory. I hope to convey the same awe and spectacle of modern animals into my reconstructions so people can appreciate the extinct species of the world as much as I do.
