Arkham Zoo Skratch Jam by BloodySamoan Arkham Zoo Skratch Jam by BloodySamoan
So I thought I had an awesome idea for the first :iconskratchjams: challenge of the year - combine an animal and a comic book character together. I did a Google and DA search and found that other people have already had this idea :(

But yeah - didn't stop me from doing it anyway.

Arkham Zoo:

Joker [link] + Proboscis Monkey [link]
Harley Quinn [link] + Red Milk Snake [link]
Mr. Freeze [link] + Antarctic Ice Fish [link]
Penquin [link] + Rockhopper Penguin [link]
Catwoman [link] + Serval [link]
Killer Croc [link] + Australian Saltwalter Crocodile [link]
Bane [link] + Silverback Gorilla [link]
Scarecrow [link] + American Crow [link]
Firefly [link] + Firefly [link]

I feel the jocker would've been more better as a hyena. and Harley as a frog. but good art man

 No problem! :D I actually like Killer Croc's look better here. It's less threatening but it looks more animal like and less generic mutanty...ish...whatever. Personally I would have made Mr. Freeze something bigger but at least as a fish we can have fun with him. :XD: I imagine him floating there just glaring and going "I'm still dangerous!" :XD:

This is one amazing piece of art! Say you know I had this idea in my head for the whole summer? I was thinking of putting these characters in it (course I'd get some calls from Warner Bros. hehe), but yeah. Although, I was thinking Joker would be a hyena & Mr. Freeze would be like an Arctic Wolf or Leopard Seal of some kind. This picture is still awesome, nevertheless!

You're welcome! :) Say, if you have some free time, (I know this took you a while as told in an earlier comment from someone) but do you think that you could add characters like the Great White Shark, Killer Moth, Black Mask (who could be a raccoon), Clayface (who could be a giant, monstrous slug), Hugo Strange (who is tougher to determine, but could be an intelligent animal such as a chimpanzee), & so on. Sorry if this is too much to ask, but I just think it would look cool.

Oh, and maybe switch Harley Quinn to a female hyena, & add Poison Ivy as a snake (you know because she can subdue enemies with her snake-like charm and can prove to be quite poisonous). If I'm annoying you than I'll stop. It's just when I see or find something interesting, I tend to turn into a blabbermouth about it. :)

Pretty good! There were a couple you forgot to put in (although they aren't as well known as most of these guys): Man Bat, Great White Shark and Killer Moth

Awesome job ^^ love it, but i have a question, why has scarecrow this thing around his neck (sry for my english I´m german and i dont now the word for this ... thing ^^; )
Reply
:iconbloodysamoan:
BloodySamoan Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thanks.

The thing around it's neck is a beer can plastic ring and it's something that birds sometimes get their heads stuck in when people leave them around.

It was a way to symbolise the noose that human Scarecrow character has around his neck.

Thanks man. Polar Bear is definitely the first thing that pops into everyone's mind when it comes to Mr. Freeze so I didn't wanna draw that.

I thought about Mr. Freeze's containment helmet and thought it'd be funny to convert it into a fish tank so I looked for an 'Ice' fish to draw :D

But yeah - thanks man :D
