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.:-)
Machairodus coloradensis by Leogon
Machairodus coloradensis
Machairodus was a genus of large machairodontine saber-toothed cats that lived in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America during the late Miocene.M. coloradensis and M. giganteus representing the more derived grade of the genus,showing the characteristic narrowed face,elongated forearms and shortened hindquarter.Machairodus coloradensis stood about 1.2 m at the shoulder, according to skeletal evidence,this would make M. coloradensis one of the largest felids.

I've done this restoration in PS CS6 and Artrage4.Hope you like it and don't hesitate to help me by your professional opinions.:-)
Gomphotherium angustidens by Leogon
Gomphotherium angustidens
Gomphotherium(Welded Beast) is an extinct genus of proboscid that evolved in the Early Miocene of North America and lived for about 10 million years from 13.650—3.6 Ma. The genus emigrated into Asia, Europe and Africa after a drop in sea level (probably during the Tortonian epoch) allowed them to cross over.It survived into the Pliocene, and its remains have been found in Chile,France, Germany, Austria, Kansas, Tennessee, Pakistan, Kenya and Bosnia and Herzegovina.Gomphotherium stood around 3 metres (9.8 ft) high with an estimated weight of 4-5 tons, and bore a strong resemblance to a modern elephant. However, it had four tusks; two on the upper jaw and two on the elongated lower jaw.(…

Depiction here is made by PS CS6.
I hope you like it and please don't forget to help me by your opinions.Thanks in advance...:-)
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
