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'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!

Plus, if they are entirely extinct they will probably not be forever. [link]
