Hello, and welcome to another collection of Zootopia Fanart. Today, we journey to The Land of The Rising Sun.
Ironically enough, Japan was the last country where Zootopia opened as a theatrical release, and when it did, it was edged out at the box office by the latest entry in the Detective Conan series. Nonetheless Japan remains the setting of some of the most colorful and vibrant Zootopia Fanart out there.
For today’s album, we’re concentrating our efforts on Japan’s classical period, and saving the ‘modern’ settings for another time.
Enjoy, and don’t forget to properly honor the original artists by clicking on the source-links.
Get your art after the break!
We begin with a series of Samurai themed images
Here’s Nick as Samurai Jack

Nick as Zatoichi

I think this may be a representation of Nick as Lone Wolf (Lone Fox?) but I’m not 100% sure.

Of course, Judy has a few warrior chops of her own.

But Lionheart’s bodyguards are no match for Gazelle’s.

The only pic I could find showing Duke Weaselton in a kimono.

And a Japanese bath-house.

This was actually quite a common sight during Japan’s Meiji period, when the country first began to westernize, a Japanese Kimono, topped with western headgear.
