Submission Rules

Ars-Fatalis is dedicated to art featuring prehistoric predatory mammals and proto-mammals.


1. No dinosaurs! Dinosaurs are awesome and we love them, but this group is for mammals and their mammal-like reptilian ancestors (like Dimetrodon, Lycaenops, Cynognathus, etc).

2. No herbivores! It's fine to have herbivores in a picture, but the focus of the piece should be a carnivore or an omnivore reasonably assumed to enjoy a meaty snack (for example the entelodonts).

3. No modern mammals! The subject should be prehistoric or at least extinct (such as thylacines).

4. Original work only. No screencaps, no images you googled, and no traces of of other artist's work.

5. Art should be your best work. Sketches on notebook or graph paper, poor quality scans, cell phone photos, and other low-quality images will be rejected.

6. No creationism - this group is not interested in mythology and politics.




Bestselling cartoonist Jeff Smith, who's best known for his sprawling epic fantasy BONE, has launched a new story that takes place on prehistoric Earth and you can read it for free online!

Tüki: Save the Humans is set 2 millions years in the past and follows the first human to leave Africa. The main character is more interested in filling his always-growling belly and avoiding prehistoric predators than listening to the crazy old ape-man mystic who seems convinced he's part of a prophecy . . .

The comic showcases Smith's signature style, a combination of anatomical skill and cartoony exaggeration, there's some gorgeous art and the characters are already full of charm and humor. I'd definitely recommend checking it out.
