"Whoa, I'm gonna have to hit the 'paws' button right there, because we're all good on bunny-scout cookies."

With that line we were introduced to the character of Yax, host of Mystic Springs Oasis; A naturalist club that eschews the idea of animals wearing clothes. (and in the case of Yax himself, apparently practicing fursonal hygiene.)

Here then is a gallery of artwork featuring Zootopia's most laid-back Dood.

Get your art after the break!

Yax's room inside the Mystic Springs Oasis Club. Who'd a thunk a guy like him could keep his space so neat?

And then there were the Zootopia Movie poster parodies;  Two of the best ones had Yax as their subject.

  1. Yax was one of those funny characters that took just a little time to grow on this one before becoming a favourite, with his hilarious stoner voice that only Tommy Chong could provide, along with his excellent memory that contrasts with his spaced-out perspective. Wanted to make a character who frequents the club who shares a comedic dynamic with Yax that is the polar opposite of Bucky and Pronk's "Shut up" battles. The character and Yax have one of those hippie flower love-and-peace banters, "I love you this much, dude!" "I love you this much!" "I love you THIS MUCH!"
