@farmerman,
I also like the bold way in which he draws vivid, recognizable emotions on proto-human, simiesque faces. Doing so he actually supports the scientific project of the book, which focuses on the evolution of proto-humans as social animals, and thus able to express emotions. Love, hate, envy and awe are part of our evolution, and Liberatore can illustrate that. Look at these pencil sketches, how expressive the faces are:

@Olivier5,
There was a fairly recent picture I saw at a conference. It was Don Johanson looking at a copy of "LUCY" (the comic).
Now that, if it wasnt a photoshop , was a major endorsement.

@farmerman,
I would definitely recommend the book to anyone interested in paleontology and evolution. It actually starts from an actual fossil, a series of (afarensis?) adult foot prints on a mud track, and on a few of these adult prints there are the tiny foot prints of a child, which is taken as the result of a common game played by many human children ever since: walking in an adult footsteps.

@farmerman,
This one is by Daren Horley, an artist who specializes in fantasy science.

@Olivier5,
The fossil is the Laetoli footprints:

@Olivier5,
I think this one was om Horley's "Walking with Dinosaurs" Not SUre. Im familiar with Z Brush, it has a fairly steep learning curve but allows the good artist to expand its capabilities
