Art of the Day #369: Skye-Jacked

Quite possibly the greatest paradox in the Zootopia universe is the case of the tiger-striped bunny, Jack Savage and the arctic-fox mechanic Skye. Created as characters for the anthropomorphic spy thriller that later evolved into Zootopia, they were dropped early on in the development phase; (they were gone even before the ‘shock-collar’ version of the film.)

For all that, they remain hugely popular within the Zootopia fan base, both as fanfiction characters and in fanart.

And so this week we present a new collection of images dedicated to the Zootopia’s other fox and bunny. Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.

We open with some solo Images of Skye

the first know image of her; an early concept piece by Zootopia co-director Byron Howard.  Although most artists these days draw her as an arctic fox, I’m not so sure that was ever the Disney Studios’ original intention for her.

One place where the Skye fan-artists do stay true to her roots is that she’s frequently depicted in grease-stained mechanic’s overalls.

Judging by the elbow-pads, I’d say she’s either wearing rollerblades or standing on a skateboard in this pic.

This picture is kind of an exception to the rule, folks.  Have you noticed?  Most of the time Jack Savage is drawn with serious expression on his face.

I wanted to include this picture, because it’s just about the only one I’ve seen that accurately depicts Skye as an arctic-fox vixen
