Story: In Darkness I Hide: A Zootopia Story

Art by Temiree
[Rating M16][Drama][Hurt/Comfort][Action][Suspense][OC]

Attention! Read this story! There is not a single OC-centered story done better than this. The way the original characters are weaved in with the ones we already know and love is brilliantly done. On top of that, the action scenes are on par with a 007 movie, and the emotions are raw and real. ~Gorgancm

Author: Darkflamewolf
Description : A coming darkness looms on Zootopia. A wolf with a shaded past confronts her own demons, both in her daily life as a bank CEO and during the night, hunting for relief from the pain that has stalked her. As the threat close to home draws near, can she put aside her own struggles to defend what she holds dear? Rated M for strong violence and sexual themes.

Special Art of the Day #236: Concept and Fanart, the Dark Side of the Zoo

Put Me Down! by Byron Howard
Source [1]
This picture by Byron Howard is without a doubt one of the most iconic pieces of concept art in the Zootopia universe. It originally drawn for a version of the film known mostly as Zistopia, or sometimes as the Shock Collar version of Zootopia. It was these collars, together with the bleak vision of Zootopia depicted in this version that led to it being shelved in favor of what later became the final, theatrical release. 

Nonetheless there remains a great deal of both concept and fan-art dedicated to this dark vision of  the film. We present here a small collection of these works for your enjoyment. And please be sure to to show the original artists your appreciation by clicking on the source links.

Disney Animation's Offical 2016 ZBrush Summit Presentation!

This one is actually pretty old! I actually watched this a very long time ago when I had a try on art and drawing! But this is actually very useful for those who draw along the Zootopia universe!

I bet a lot of artists have seen this already! Every year, Pixologic, the creators of Zbrush; hold an annual summit showcasing all the artists and creators who use their tool! And one of them was Disney Animation, which during 2016, showcased Zootopia!

This is super insightful for those who want to understand more on how they animated and modeled our favorite Zootopia characters and brought them to life. It's really worth the watch, especially if you're an artist!

Check out the full presentation right after the break!

Here's Judy in some vintage threads. The original description of this pic says she's wearing 18th Century Clothing but it looks more 19th Century to me. (Civil War era) What's your take?

In the meantime we present another collection of random Zootopia fanart for your appreciation. Enjoy, and don't forget to show the artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Story: Nick vs. The Fake Relationship

Art by Mushstone
[Rating T13][Romance][Crime][Action][Slow Burn][AU][Complete]

Aces, Nick! A beautiful crossover of Zootopia meeting "Chuck". The mashing of personalities is done beautifully, in such a way that you can see both characters being portrayed at the same time. With a bit of "Chuck" flavored action and Zootopia-style humor and banter, it is a very fun read. ~Gorgancm

Midnight Madness: Easily Distracted (by Quirky-Middle-Child)

It's been a while since we've had a midnight madness post!  And what better way to renew that series than to give y'all a bit of a glimpse behind the scenes?

As anyone who knows me on a personal level can testify, I am easily distracted.  Like, ADHD out the wazoo.  Doug (from Up) has nothing on me.  So when one of our Fearless Leaders, DarkFlameWolf, had a birthday recently, I enlisted the aid of our resident Quirky-Middle-Child to make her a short comic based on a true story!

...No, seriously.  This actually happened.  I actually did this.  I was in a phone meeting with Dark and... well, I won't spoil the joke here, but it was pretty funny.  Check it out after the break!

It's that time again...

For the superstitious, Friday 13th is the best day to avoid any risk of bad luck. No one wants to get into an unfortunate or a really embarrassing moment.

For this Artwork of the Day, we're showcasing many situations of our favorite Zootopia characters in unFURtunate situations (pun intended).

Enjoy...and remember it's bad luck not to show the artists some appreciation by clicking on the source links.
