Thylacosmilus by SizzyBubbles Thylacosmilus by SizzyBubbles
"Don't call me a Smilodon!"

One of my fav prehistoric mammals and a marsupial! Its downright impossible to find much of anything on this guy, even in my marsupial book! So i found a pic of a skull in a book and just look and restorations from paleo artists to come out with the body. I was really trying NOT to make it to big cat-like, but they guy was really trying to look like one. Damn him!
So here ya go. The coloring job is a bit sloppy AND i can't find my blender pen. At least is finally done.

The other day; my friends went out to the park and played frizbe! Arrg! And i was stuck at work all day! I wanna run 'round out side!! Wanna-see-outside...

i think that this is most real reconstruction of thylacosmilus.Many people draw it like cats.

I absoloutely love this. Too many artists just draw them as big cats. This on the other hand portrays the marsupial side of it nicely

Do you think that these things may've encountered real Smilodons?
