Cordyceps Gorilla by thomaswievegg Cordyceps Gorilla by thomaswievegg
Hello! when I painted my cordyceps lion a while ago I also thought about making some other animals. I think someone suggested a silverback gorilla in the comments, and I thought it would be fun to try. I didn't go all out on the fungus here, wanted to preserve some gorilla features in the face, and not just make a giant fungus/clicker head with teeth like the lion piece. So I guess this would be a "gorilla stalker" and not a "gorilla clicker" :D

It's a good thing The Last of Us didn't include fungus infected animals.

reminds me of photos of Tasmanian devils with cancer which threatens their whole population by being highly contagious...

well drawn but makes me sad :( animal's suffering, that is.

maybe you should draw an animal who is not looking like a danger by itself? like, a panda or something. cute harmless animal + illness gives, at least to me, more unsettling feeling than an ill predator.

Not only is this scary, there's also something SO tragic about the animals also getting infected with this kind of stuff.

I can see this happening in "The last of us" a game I haven't even played. Point is, Animals with this shit, that's a terrifying idea.

Oh my god, this is amazing! As a Kid, Gorilla's were one of my favorite Animals, I loved Monkeys. This is truly gorgeous.

If the gorilla had a lot of fungal on it, it would most likely look like a bloater.:3

It would be a bit more better if it had some of that weird glowing fungal growth that the stalkers had.

I remember mentioning a gorilla on ign when talking about the PS4 version of the Last of Us. This would be so terrifying to hear. I would love to hear a sound sample.

This would have been a great picture even without the fungi. The fungi in this is awesome and so is the whole picture.

Very cool work but to be honest, I would be more terrified to see the lion in person on account of the severity of the infection it has. I could only imagine what an infected eagle or spider might look like. :)
