Art of the Day # 194: Let’s Dance

The film Zootopia featured exactly one brief dance scene, Gazelle’s concert performance, at the end, while the credits were rolling.   The Angel with Horns did more singing than dancing, and Nick and Judy never exactly danced with each other.

And yet….

Some of the best and most popular Zootopia Fanart shows the two of them dancing together.

Here then is a collection of some of the best of the Nick and Judy dance pics, (together with a few featuring some of the other Zootopia characters.) 

For this list, we’re excluding any images of Nick and Judy on the dance floor at their wedding reception. (The Wildehopps wedding pics deserve their own album.)

Get your art after the break!


We begin with a few random sketches of Nick and Judy on the dance floor

If Nick had taken Judy to the Prom.

Of course in Zootopia, nobody owns dancing like this lady  
(And always remember, The Hips Don’t Lie!)

First we had the lady, and now here are the tigers. 
(Hey, they had to start somewhere.)

Re, the title picture: 
Never forget Nicholas, turnabout is fair play.

And now for something a bit more highbrow; Judy as a ballerina.

There have been several Zootopia + LaLa Land crossover pics posted to the net. 
This one, unfortunately, is sans graphics…but it has the best artwork of any that I’ve seen so far.

If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to, 
Why don’t you go where fashion sits?
(Don’t be mad, be glad; I could have used the version from Young Frankenstein.)

  1. If the Zootopia universe abided to Steven Universe logic, Judy and Nick would have danced with each other so much, that they'd fuse their bodies into one larger, stronger body, similar to the Crystal Gems.

    • I would totally watch that! Nick as an older gem that has been in many wars an ran away and Judy a new gem that is still learning how the diamonds and other worlds work, it would be a great story!
