ThylaSky by DJ88 ThylaSky by DJ88
EDIT: For those commenting about how they're extinct and such, I have this to say;

" there are two types of extinction.

"Biological" and "Functional". Biological basically means they're all gone, never coming back. Not a chance. Like the Dodo Bird.

Then there's "Functional". Meaning there may be a small group left of a species, but not enough to sustain and or increase the amount of the species. Meaning they're holding on by a thread or silently fading away without us seeing them.

It is believed that the Thylacine may fall into the Functional category, because recent evidence has pointed to them still being around.
With all the alleged sightings and what-not.

Perhaps we may never know. But there's hoping."


Also Yes, Yes They are/were a member of the Marsupial family. NOT the canine family.






Thylacine in some cosmic-ish, glow-y background 8)

It's funny, because if you know me, you know it's a silly pet peeve of mine when someone makes a Thylacine the yellowest of yellows. And this is yellow. BUT ONLY BECAUSE IT'S GLOWING D8 OTHERWISE BAGH!!!!! (seriously though, make your characters whatever color you want...it's.just. mustard thylacines...*shudders* )






Brushes are a mix of what photoshop offers and some of my own brushes I've made.
Thylacine outlined and colored in paint tool sai, and whole image edited/finished via Photoshop.


I have been itching to draw something digitally. Soo, why not a Thylacine?

I don't quite know what else to say.

amazing for a lot of reasons - anatomy, motion, brilliant linework, soft coloring, background, and overall 'ghostly" mood that seems very appropriate for this species
i love it!

Just saw your comment below: I didn't know thylacines are possibly under the functional category! What sort of evidence has been presented?

Just a lot of alleged sightings/photos/video of a strange "dog like" animal that may or may not have stripes.

Forgive the lack of a better term when I say "dog-like". Another pet peeve is when some think that The Thylacine is a member of the canine family, which it's not. A common, and understandable mistake sure. But still.

They were native to Australia right? I don't think they were found any where else? Sorry for so many questions!

Oh I didnt know that. But know that people stated they've seen them. I just hope they're out there somewhere. Even though more and more of their land is being taken away.
