Art of the Day #276

Zorro by thewyvernsweaver

Nick as Zorro? Well, why not? The word does mean 'fox' in Spanish. And in fact, Disney once produced a Zorro TV series, so there are two connections right there.

And right now, we present another collection of random Zootopia fanart for your perusal.

Enjoy, and don't forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Get your art after the break!

Story Updates: 17 October 2018 - A Homecoming to Remember

Everybody get your spooks on, because Halloween is just around the corner! To celebrate frightening festiveness this year, we'll be sharing a few Zootopia Halloween stories with you all over the next two weeks, stories that are sure to get you in the mood for monsters and ghouls and oh so much candy.

For now though, enjoy another batch of updated Zootopia fanfics over the past week, including an AU that just received its final chapter. That's right, "A Rival Romance," the hit high school AU fanfiction, has reached its conclusion, and what a conclusion it is. Rest assured, if you're a fan of the story, you'll have a swell time with how Fox in the hen house wraps things up! And if you haven't read it yet, now's a perfect time as any to catch up and see what it's all about!

Have a fabulous Wednesday everybody, and get to reading!

Happy Halloween by pixiuart

Two weeks have come and gone, marking 2/3rds of the ZNN Halloween Art Contest!  Already we're starting to get some submissions in, and so far we're liking what we're seeing.

But we're going to need a lot more sent in before voting starts, so here's your reminder:
Email your halloween artwork to with the subject "2018 Halloween Contest" and be sure to let us know what category to put it in.   

We will be accepting submissions until October 22nd, at which time the voting will start!

And don't feel like you need to make a unique piece for this contest; if you have made something Halloween-themed this year just for fun, by all means, please submit it!  Be sure to spread the word and let other artists know about it as well.  The more participation we get, the more fun the whole thing is!

One week to go, ladies and gentlemammals.  We can't wait to see what you send us!  And remember, as always...

Try Everything!

Special Art of the Day #275: Mrs. Wilde

Mrs Wilde by einshelm

Nick Wilde's mother: we never saw her face in the movie, only a red skirt and a purple sweater, and yet, she's been the subject of a tremendous amount of speculation (and fanart).

Is she still alive? What is her relationship with Nick, if so? How does she feel now that he's gone straight to become a police officer? We may never know the answer to some of these questions (or at least not until Zootopia 2 hits the screen), but in a March 29, 2016, tweet, Zootopia co-director Rich Moore offered this glimpse into her character:

"Mrs. Wilde still lives in Zootopia, in the same apartment where she raised Nick. 🏢🐺 She's waiting for a grandkit."

Well, while she's waiting, we present a collection of Zootopia fanart dedicated to Nick Wilde's mother. Enjoy, and don't forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

The WildeHopps 2019 Community Calendar Is Here!

When the concept of this first came out, I was fully on board this train. And now it's finally come to fruition. Take my money!

The long-awaited Wildehopps 2019 Calendar is finally here! Back in April, ZootopiaUnderground (or optimuspower92) came up with the concept to create a Zootopia-themed calendar, but not just any Zootopia themed calendar -- a Wildehopps themed calendar! (Yay!)

The wall calendar features 14 unique art pieces from a variety of artists -- 12 different pieces of art for each month, in addition to art from the back and front covers themselves. Each piece has been drawn by a different artist and features the ever-so-popular Zootopia ship Wildehopps!

This is something I'm definitely gonna get my hands on. If you're a huge Wildehopps shipper, you should definitely get this calendar, too.

You may not recognize the song title, but you'll recognize the music, the most famous jitterbug tune of all time.

So while Judy and Nick get down to cut a rug, Bug, let's the rest of us go check out the latest random collection of Zootopia. Enjoy, Roy... and don't be a square, give the original artists some skin by clicking on the source links, reet, neat, and complete.

Story Updates: 10 October 2018 - Check, Please!

Sorry for the extended wait in getting this story update post uploaded, but you know what they say: double the wait, double the stories! At least, I'm sure that's been said before. Don't quote me on that.

ANYWAY, hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday, and why not make it a little more entertaining by reading one or more of these fine pieces of Zootopia fanfiction? Plenty of varied content for you to peruse here, including a story that was just recently completed. That's right, I Write Big's Weaselton-centered fic, "CA$H ONLY," has reached its finish line. It's funny, it's crazy, and most of all, it's enjoyable as heck. Give it a look if you're interested in reading more about everyone's favorite Duke of Bootleg!

Have a great day everybody, and read on!
