Hello lovers of Zootopia, wherever you are.

Today we’re featuring the artwork of Qalcove, not only one of the best Zootopia fan-artists working today, but also one of the most prolific…and possibly the most versatile; there’s no artist I know of who can match her skills at showing Nick and Judy in such a wide range of situations…or in such a diversity of art styles.  And when it comes to stirring up emotions, Qalcove crushes it; she can tug at your heartstrings with one pic and tickle your funnybone with the next.

In addition to her solo artwork, Qalcove recently became involved with a new project, ‘The ZPD’, an upcoming ‘mockumentary’ miniseries centered on the Zootopia Police Department.  She also has her own Youtube and PicartoTV channels.

And so today, we proudly present an all-too-brief sample of Qalcove’s Zootopian artworks.  Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the artist some love by clicking on the source-links. (You might even want to check out her Patreon Page.)


We open, as always, with a collection of Judy Hopps pics .

Check out the next three images and you’ll see what we mean by ‘a diversity of art-styles.’  From realistic to impressionistic, and then to a caricature in 3 easy moves.

Yet another of Qalcove’s specialties is drawing feral versions of Nick and Judy, (and Company)

I especially like her portrayal of The Ottertons in this one.

And here’s some more artistic diversity.  If it it weren’t for the signatures, I’d never have known that the next two images were created by the same person.

  1. Is there anyone in the community who doesn’t know Qalcove? If so…shame on them.
    We’d all love a piece done by this artist, I’m sure.
