Tundratown, Zootopia's perpetual winter wonderland, kept frigid year round by the Zootopia climate wall.

Here you may find a plethora of winter sports and numerous find dining establishment, such as Halibut's and Svalbard's.

It's also the home turf of the city's most notorious gangster, Mr. Big, so don't be a wiseguy... not unless you want to end up on ice, the hard way.

Get your art after the break!

Getting around Tundratown sometimes requires the use of specialized modes of transport. (More concept art.)

Koslov standing watch outside of Svalbard's.  You'd have a sour expression on your face, too, if you'd been knocked down from a major supporting role in Zootopia to a walk-on part with no dialogue.

Ahhh, poor Nick.  Oh well, hopefully he'll be mended by the time we get to the Rainforest District.  For now, this is your ever-humble tour-guide, Merc Marten, signing off.

  1. Thank you, it was a fun ride ! I like the idea of mixing concept arts and fanarts altogether. Now I can't wait to visit Rainforest District.
