Beautiful! I love the choice of 'ancestry', its great to see evolution described without archaeopteryx involved somewhere XD Although I know its for humans, but you would be surprised where that little fella turns up! May I ask what documentary this was commissioned for, I'm interested? :)

Ugh its a bit chavenistic for my liking, (cuz out of all the diverse/intresting tetrapod linages the "line" can branch off to after tiktaalik from sinornithosaurus to gorgonopsids to pantodonts to thoosuchids to huayangosaurids to burnetiamorphs to Labidosaurus to probainognathians to cetiosaurids to dissorophoids to phorusrhacids to nanchangosauridae to a´stopods to rhamphorhynchids to climacoceratids to adelospondyli to oligobuninae (c wat i did there lol? :P )) it went to those particular cliche examp. to umbrella-tize the idea of evolu., but the piece is still neat to! I like the part of the Kimberella illustration!

Interesting although in reality the Homo sp. males would be far more likely to carry the spears.

Yes, maybe but I wanted to depart from how this is generally represented...
