Some 10 minutes to doom stuff. Because I can. Lazy background is lazy.

This all started at 3am last night, when I had a mighty need to draw some sad Zim. So I sketched this out, and later i finished it.

I've had this idea in my head for a while actually(almost 2 months).
I heard that Jhonen originally wanted Zim and Dib to die at the end of the episode-as in killed off for real dead-to end the series. I'd kill to read that version of the script >:3

So what's happening here is Zim is aware that he's gonna die, his mission will be a failure, so he just kinda breaks down. I'm just imagining the whole seen if it actually went like this, like holy shit I might make a short comic of Zim dying. If this actually happened in the series, I'd be like :iconfeelplz: :iconrazycryplz:

More shit about this drawing because reasons:
-I originally wanted to draw the sickly green goo that Zim coughs up, but I didn't really know how I would do that :B

-I think I did a decent job with the tears to actually make them look like tears...watery stuff is hard to do.

-The angle was really difficult for me to do, so it's probably off. Perspective is a pain in the ass.

-Overlays are extremely fun to do and they look cool. 'Nuff said.

-Just a reminder, it's 10 minutes to Doom, so dont tell me that Zim' PAK is missing because I am well aware of that.

-Why did I type so much stuff here.

He also failed to realize that he is just a puppet for his Tallest. He will die alone and ignorant, but don't we all? (godthisissodepressing)

I love the irony that theoretically he'd be just fine. Sure, his body would die, but he's not the body. The body is just what Zim uses to move around in. Provided the PAK was replaced on another blank Irken body, he'd be back to normal in no time. Odds are he wouldn't even remember his death, since the PAK was removed before then.

You do have a good point there, and I don't think I've thought of it like that!

However, when it comes to the reality of the situation, Zim is in fact really screwed over. There are no PAKless Irken bodies for the PAK to inhabit on Earth. And even if some Irkens got a hold of his PAK, odds are that they would destroy it as soon as possible (and celebrate with sooooooo many snacks) because they all hate Zim.

Exactly... the only real way he's surviving is if GIR miraculously finds or... opens up another Irken body for him to inhabit, or Tak finds him and sticks him on an even MORE physically inept body to laugh at him.
