Endangered animals? Kind of? by toastify Endangered animals? Kind of? by toastify
So lawl.. I started to draw a Thylacine for the 100 animals challenge, inspired by my recent stalkee, ~Thylazine..

(They're extinct, by the way) And then I was like, goddamn, we're stupid. We keep making the same mistakes and.. we're losing nature. I want our kids to see a giraffe, you know? ): Soo I got to drawing a bunch of endangered animals and having a really hard time making it work. O:

Right now I have.. from left to right: a tiger (baw, I dunno what kind), thylacine (a.k.a. Tasmanian tiger), Florida panther, black rhinoceros, and California condor..

I want to put in some more, but I'm not sure which animals I should use or how I could fit them in. D: I'm thinking about putting in another bird or two, like the ivory-billed woodpecker or the whooping crane or something, and maybe sneaking in some reptiles (eastern indigo snake, desert tortoise, sea turtles, etc.)..

So lawl. Any advice..? I would really appreciate crits/redlines on this. <3 I need some more animals, but I'm having trouble coming up with big guys that need attention. There are some that get plenty of attention, like tigers and pandas, so I hesitate to put in pandas (and wonder if I should replace the tigers with something else).. There are *so* many obscure, less-flashy birds and reptiles and amphibians and fish and bats and primates out there, and I don't know which to do. D: </ramble>

Pfff, plus the idea of finishing a pic this big is daunting..

I might just scrap this and do individual pictures for some endangered animals. (8

Rotfl. *Fail*

Arrhh, thank you so much! Cx California Condors are awesome.. they're not extinct (the thylacine is the only one that's gone; the rest are endangered). I hear they're making a comeback with human help, fortunately~ C:

wooow, I love this pic!!!! you should finish this right naw!!! :D :D :D. Thylacines are great. In a few years, they migh return from extinction, cause sientists r running a clonation proyect in Australia. As for other endangered/extinct animals, you should try Irish deer(extinct), polar bear, dodos, red pandas, etc..
I really love this :clap: keep it going!!!

Awhh.. Cx Thanks~! Actually.. I may finish it sometime. Probably not for a few weeks because we're going on vacation, but... eventually. (8

I read about that.. :33 I hope they can do it~! I'm not sure how it would impact ecosystems, but it seems like losing a predator would seriously put them out of whack. Plus, they existed fairly recently.. it's not like reintroducing mammoths or something. (x

Wow, great suggestions~ O8 I didn't know red pandas were endangered! That's a shame.. /: Ooh, I'm finding some good ones.. bison, sea otters.. I dunno. I'll have to see what fits, lol. xDD

P.S.: Holy shit. o_________o [link]
