Thylacosmilus cub and friends by Psithyrus Thylacosmilus cub and friends by Psithyrus
A little paleo picture for my Dad on Father's Day. A Thylacosmilus atrox cub and his lizard buddy take a rest from the hot South American sun. The lizard is eyeing a scrumptious looking cricket. Please enjoy these little paleo friends and happy Father's Day everybody :)

Thanks, i know. But i wanted to draw a thylacosmilus and a chameleon, so i just put them together, maybe the little lizard hitched a ride on a floating raft from Africa. Fantasy is so much fun, screw current biogeography 

thanks again for your kind words and best wishes,

That looks like a chameleon. Chameleons don't live in South America!

No thylacosmilus wasn't a feline but a marsupial smilodon-like carnivore living in South America that was an isolated continent before the Americas junction (about 2.5 million years I believe)

I love all the characters even the cricket ^^
Good job on the fur and scales (if chameleons really have scales... I'm not sure)

I totally didn't see the cricket! I thought the little chameleon was simply enjoying a nap on such a soft 'pillow'. :) Lovely as always!

Father's day is a long time coming for us, we don't celebrate it until November here.

Oh I love how you made the little cub more marsupial in appearance than feline. That's a marvelous touch for this animal. It has a tazzy devilish look to it. Sooo adorable!!! I love your style to pieces.

Psithyrus Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012
Wow, that,s an amazing analysis, i was indeed trying to bring the marsupial nature out on the little fellow, i was thinking of tazmanian devils as models.

Thanks for the kind words,

Blair

Hehe I went through a big prehistoric cats/feline-like animal phase and Thylacsmilus always intrigued me. It's great to see some fanart for such an awesome animal.

No problem at all, I always enjoy seeing your artwork.
