Hominid ascent

A few months ago while teaching in class at the Academy I was discussing with my students the nature of ancient hominid species. I began to sketch a few impressions of our evolutionary cousins starting with Neanderthal followed up by Homo Erectus and lastly Australopithecus. When I was finished one of my students asked my I made Homo Erectus look angry and intense while Australopithecus looked frightened and worried. I answered that Erectus was a hunter of animals while Australopithecus was hunted by animals. These drawings were done with Col-erase Blue pencil on 12 field animation paper.
