|Nick and Judy by heffy038
It appeared on screen for less than five full minutes, but it played a huge part in the Zootopia story line — in Judy’s second encounter with Nick, in her reconciliation with him following that disastrous performance at the press conference, and in the final confrontation with Mayor Bellwether; Judy’s Carrot-Pen remains the most iconic prop in the film.
Here then, we present a collection of artwork dedicated to perhaps the most unsung ‘character’ in the movie.
Enjoy, and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.
Get your art after the break!
We begin with a pair of concept drawings, showing the evolution of Judy’s Carrot-Pen from the early prototypes to the final version, seen in the movie.

Probably the most famous ‘Carrot-Pen’ moment in Zootopia was one that took place under the bridge, when Judy caught up with Nick after returning to the city int he hope of trying to set things right.

Quite often, you’ll see Judy’s Carrot Pen as the centerpiece of some WildeHopps fanart — as illustrated by the pair of pics below.

Nick and Judy using the carrot-pen during an interrogation. (Re: the animal in the left foreground, I hope Judy;s got a LOT of unused storage space on that pen.)

However, let us not forget that Judy’s Carrot-Pen is first and foremost a PEN!
