Mastodon by Leogon
 A bull American mastodon (Mammut americanum),wandering around the coniferous forests of North america,during the late Pleistocene.
M. americanum, the American mastodon, is the youngest and best-known species of the genus. They disappeared from North America as part of a mass extinction of most of the Pleistocene megafauna, widely presumed to have been related to overexploitation by Clovis hunters, and possibly also to climate change.
The average body size of the species M. americanum was around 2.3 m in height at the shoulders, corresponding to a large female or a small male, but large males could grow up to 2.8 m in height and weigh as much as 4.5 tonnes.(
I made this mastodon by Artrage and PS CS6,and Wacoim pen&tab.
Hope you enjoy it and don't forget to help me improve my work by your critiques and comments...:-)
Bison latifrons:The last man standing... by Leogon
Bison latifrons:The last man standing...
The time was dawn of Holocene,when the last broad horned bison roamed the frozen plains of North America.Undoubtedly, B. latifrons  was on of the largest bovids that ever lived on the planet.they could reach 2.5m at the shoulder and weigh up to 2 tons.Yet the most spectacular of all would be their horns which measured as great as 200 centimeters from tip to tip.However any of this could not save them from Quaternary extinction event)...
I created this one by PS cs6 and Artrage4 and used some photos to make it's habitat.Hope you like it...:-)
Megantereon by Leogon
A Megantereon ventures to pass a newly frozen river in cold winter.Who knows...may be like modern tigers and jaguars they were quite familiar with water life!It is possible that megantereon species living in northern regions had a fur color similar to that of snow leopard or Persian leopards to better camouflage in frozen forests.
Anyway,I reconstructed the Megantereon in PS CS6 and Artrage4 and then used a photo by one of my friends to make a habitat for him.Hope you like this kitty...:-) 
Mammut borsoni by Leogon
Mammut borsoni
Mammut borsoni or Borson's mastodon or as recently named Zyglophodon borsoni, was one of the most spectacular mastodon species of Eurasia.With tusks up to 4 meters long,they were real tuskers of all Proboscideans.
here I depicted a bull M.borsoni on it's way to find somewhere to settle in the dry season.Would any other beast dare to stay in it's way?I don't think so!;P
I used PS CS6 and Artrage 4 to create the animal,using multiple layers of stamping coloring and blending.finally I introduced the animal into a photo to feel at home.
I hope you like it and don't forget to give me advice!:-)
Gastornis giganteus by Leogon
Gastornis giganteus
Gastornis is an extinct genus of large flightless birds that lived during the late Paleocene and Eocene epochs of the Cenozoic era. The genus is currently thought to contain three or four distinct species, known from incomplete fossil remains, found in western-central Europe (England, Belgium, France and Germany). More complete specimens are known from a fourth, North American species, which had previously been classified in the distinct genus Diatryma. Many scientists now consider Diatryma to be so similar to the other species of Gastornis that it should also be included in that genus. A fifth species, also previously classified in its own genus, is known from China.
Gastornis were very large birds, and have traditionally been considered to be predators of small mammals. However, several lines of evidence, including the lack of hooked claws in known Gastornis footprints and studies of their beak structure, have caused scientists to re-interpret these birds as herbivores which probably fed on tough plant material and seeds.(…

I made this reconstruction based on a picture of the skeleton.The work has been done in PS CS6 and Artrage 4.
I hope you like my giant bird and don't forget to add your comments and critiques.:-)
Today,I celebrate my 400th watcher!! not a bad "friends list" in less than 2 years...I really feel honored to be beside you,a member of Great DA!:D
