Beep! Beep! Sheeza Sheep!

Greetings, fans of Zootopia. Today’s Art of the Day focuses on Assistant Mayor Dawn Bellwether, recently voted on of the top ten Disney surprise villains on Ms. Mojo.

Like many a great screen heavy, Bellwether was a villain with a righteous grudge; Mayor Lionheart really did treat her like dirt.  Had she taken her revenge upon him alone, instead of the entire predator population of Zootopia, she might almost have been a sympathetic character (almost!).

And so without further ado, we present our newest gallery of Dawn Bellwether fanart.

Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.


And early concept study of Dawn Bellwether; note how she looks almost identical to her final, theatrical incarnation.  She was one of the few characters in Zootopia who remained largely unchanged through the many different versions of the film.

Yeah, Hizzoner would double down on something like that, wouldn’t he?

Everybody’s had that one co-worker who was meek as a lamb…until THEY get promoted to supervisor.

And finally, here’s something you don’t see every day Chauncey, a great villain playing a baaad one.  (if you’re talking about the screen version of Green Lantern, that is)

  1. Bellwether by playfurry… I notice her skirt seems like a preppie cammo design. Does that mean she’s… going commando?

    Bellhopps by fluttershythekind… I laughed way more at this than I should have, considering I’m still at work… and surrounded by co-workers… and now some of them are walking the long way around my cubicle…
