ThylaZomb by DJ88 ThylaZomb by DJ88
A zombie Thylacine bursting out of it's grave.
Why?
Why not? This is my gallery, I do what I want. Some macabre Thylacine art is almost called for coming from me. I can't always make them adorable and such.

I just imagine an overwhelming surge of energy and anger coming from this creature. Roaring/Calling out loudly into the night sky. Alarming all around that something terrifying has awoken. Enough to kickstart it back to life, or un-life. A craving of vengeance? A thirst for blood? ( funny little joke, seeing as people used to speculate/spread the rumor that thylacine were 'Vampieric'. Meaning they'd kill livestock, and drain the animal victims of every drop of blood it possessed... Oh people collectively had a wild imagination back then. ) I don't really remember if I had more of a concept for it other than a strong, angry vibe. And thought of it being a zombie. And a Thylacine. I just scribbled the pose, and liked it enough to keep adding. And my imagination/brain took over from there.

Anyways... So I had been working on this one on and off for like, weeks. It's just been sitting in my files scratching at the back of my mind for me to complete it. So I did. I just couldn't figure a color scheme for it, so I decided for a diluted one color scheme. This was supposed to be a fully colored night scene, but nothing was working for me. So I just did this. I am glad to finally have it done and uploaded. As I was fairly pleased with it. Fun fact, the thylacine, trees, bg, rock, everything that's outlined, was basically outlined on the same layer. If I remember correctly. Because I just zoned out and kept adding and adding. Ignored my usual process and whatever.


Dangit me, this would have been a good Halloween/October upload.

Oh well.

Don't know what else to add.

Whoa, that's an awesome idea! You got those jaws just right! If you still want to do it for Halloween, you could have him/her stalking the countryside as a zombie or something. Probably still mostly the same as he/she was when alive, since they were already fierce anyway. Hahah. Zombie thylacine is still a neat idea. (Sorry if I sounded bossy...you're the artist after all :)

This is mesmerising. The shape of the head is spot-on, it really captures the not-quite-dog look of thylacines. Very cool.

Needs more zombie o3o like holes in it, exposed bones and such. Unless this is a newly dead one
Just a suggestion<3
 Just looks like a ghostie-thylacine. 

So hardcore though<3 I love it<3

I had a feeling someone would point out that it isn't gory enough to be 'zombie-like' lol. I was even all, "Wow, a zombie drawing from me that isn't horrible and bloody? That's different." . Though, I felt that It was roughed up enough, and that its fur was supposed to show that it's un-kept, and or has wounds. I guess re-sizing did kind of ruin the effect. And the fact that it's thin. I think it would be a more recently dead creature. Or "Fresh Dead"? And being underground, no scavenging animals had a chance to pick at it I suppose. So it remained intact and so on.
But anyways, thanks for the comment 8D
I had fun zoning out and drawing it :heart:
