RE: lewisuchus

I would agree that it might be a little premature to attempt a reconstruction until the new Lewisuchus material is described (at least I don't think the new description has been published yet).
However, if you still want to pursue this, the pes (foot) in the original description is apparently that of a proterochampsid. But I would assume the real Lewisuchus foot would be intermediate between that of Marasuchus and Eoraptor (for the purposes of general artwork, I doubt the feet of Lewisuchus, Marasuchus and Eoraptor would display any major differences).

Could someone tell me where I could find a skeletal reconstruction of

I have seen the reconstruction of this thecodont in pred dinos of the world,
but it seems that the feet have somehow been "blotched-out."

Would appreciate any help.

Well, I wouldn?t try a skeletal reconstruction of Lewisuchus. It is now
considered to be a Lagosuchid.
