I don't know whether to love these guys or punch them in their fringe-covered faces. Great illustration... as always.

Yes! I got my wish. Great stuff, as usual, Drak.

I remember seeing the rough version of this (I was at work, so I couldn't post), and thinking "If he gave the others some typical emo piercings, this would be perfect."

You made it look even better than I thought it could turn out. Got my vote and my purchase.

This thing will print, because we are all nerds here........and nerds hate emos.

An incredibly well deserved fogging. Don't listen to anyone who calls this pandering- nothing this well illustrated is pandering. A tip of my hat to eHalc for the band name as well.

I also wrote some song lyrics - two verses, a chorus that changes, and a bridge. I don't have the skills to write music for it though. If anyone is interested, skilled and has free time and recording equipment, PM me!

I'm gonna keep the lyrics to myself for now though.

Are the koalas emo because they're so distressed about the species-wide chlamydia epidemic?

Made some tweaks; good enough to share now, I think. Any musicians around who could write some music and then record it for us?

If possible, the bass line should throb with emotion, beating like a broken heart. Also, it should be played not on a bass guitar but on a didgeridoo.

Eucalyptus Melancholy, the critically acclaimed emo-core rock group from down under, takes its name from their first hit single. Written by lead singer Joey Cinereus, the group calls the song the culmination of their depressing, meaningless life in the trees.

Eucalyptus Melancholy

No water left to shed a tear
My haunting pain is not enough
Motionless I strain to hear
The broken melody of love
You are the only one I fear
You leave me hanging from above

I can't hold on, I can't hold on
I'm crashing down, I'm crashing down

Eucalyptus melancholy
Toxic leaves ever befall me
Slip into the shadowed valley
Death is near, I live for folly
Eucalyptus melancholy
Eucalyptus melancholy

I've only poison words to eat
No roses here, I sleep in thorns
18 hours in the heat
My dessicated soul is torn
Without you I am incomplete
Without you I can only mourn

I can't go on, I can't go on
I'm crying now, I'm dying now

Eucalyptus melancholy
Toxic leaves ever befall me
Try to climb from shadowed valley
Death is near, I live for folly
Eucalyptus melancholy

[20 minutes of dramatic instrumental interlude]

I am not a vicious drop bear
I am a lover bleeding in despair
Why don't you care? Why don't you care?
Life is unfair, life is unfair!

Eucalyptus melancholy
Toxic leaves like dying holly
Walk with me through shadowed valley
Death is near, I live for folly

Eucalyptus melancholy
I dream of you, you still enthrall me
Weep with me in shadowed valley
Death is here, I die for folly
Death is here, I die for folly
Death is here, I die

I could make music to this in midi-form. hoho.. If I had the recording equipment, I would make a full-fledged song out of it. But alas, I only have the skill and resources to make a midi file.

I got some really funny musical ideas, though. And Robert Smith from The Cure would definitely be the sound of the vocals, along with their mind-numbingly reverberated guitars.

Oh Drakxxx....the concept is really quite hilarious and satirical (I hope). I love the colors, the teal and the grey is really dynamic. I'm a fan of your usual fair...but you are certainly versatile! Something about these humanized koalas is creeping me out...

You haven't bought anything either, so really shouldn't matter, huh.

I hate seeing drakxxx so close to fogging, but not making it. His illustrations are amazing...and this one is even wearable!

Why do koala bears look so appropriate having the severely side swept emo hair? That just seems to work somehow.

Thanks for all the support as always guys. Also, thanks for the lyrics eHalcyon! I think It'll be the koala's big hit single.

Thanks very much. I tried something a little different with this one. I tried to find a balance between the popular cuteness we see around here and my typical illustrative style. I'm pretty pleased and amused by it, so it's cool.

As I'm sure some of you could guess, my first idea was some crazy detailed heavy metal shirt, but I realized the project might not have been my best bet for the woot contest.

Agreed. If/When you decide to take this to cameesa, Draxxx, you'll have my $$. Sorry that this didn't get back into the fog, but it seems like the voters were way fickle this round.
