And hello once more, fellow fans of Zootopia.

It’s been a while since we’ve done a ‘Featured Artist’ Art of the Day, and so it’s high time for another one

Today we’re focusing on one seriously versatile individual, Monoflax.

Landscapes, interiors, portraits, character studies, action-shots, crossovers, and AU illustrations; this is one Zootopia fanartist who can truly be said to do it all.  His art style ranges from as ethereal as gossamer, to as gritty as dirt under the fingernails. Some of his images are so spot-on, you’d swear they were concept art.

But don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself below; for this week’s Art of the Day collection, we’re proud to offer a gallery of Monoflax’s amazing Zootopia Fanart.  Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artist some love by clicking on the source-links.


We open with a series of cityscapes.  Here, you’ll see what we mean about Monoflax’s work looking almost like Zootopia concept art

These next two images make me hope we’ll more of that cargo-blimp in the sequel.

This looks a little like Vannellope’s hideout from Wreck-it Ralph.

Now, let’s move on to some character studies, beginning with our favorite hustling fox.

Cynical, isn’t he?

Pretty sly for a fox-guy.

Here are three pieces from a sketch dump, mostly about Nick but with one or two scribbles of Judy and/or Benjamin Clawhauser thrown in.

Here’s one of Judy, and no, this isn’t a modified screenshot.  (Fooled me the first time, too.)

And now onward to more character pics, featuring some of the rest of the Zootopia gang.

“What’ve you got in your mouth there, Clawhauser?”
“Nuffing, Fir.”

This next one of Flash looks uncannily like the work of (Disney concept artist) Shiyoon Kim.

But THIS one…!
The first time I saw it, I was sure it was a Cory Loftis pic.  (And I still keep catching myself, checking to make sure.)

I really like Bogo in this get-up; they should show him dressed this way in the sequel. too.

Moving right along, we have some Monoflax images of Nick and Judy together.

Note the way Nick is holding his ears in this one; a nice touch that greatly enhances the sensation of speed

Given how prolific he is, this is probably NOT the only Wildehopps pic Monoflax ever created…but it’s the only one I’ve ever across.

Nick is soooo going to get it for this.

Along with Zootopia, ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ is another one of Monoflax’s favorite subjects.

  1. There’s something about the Hereafter one that’s just fantastic…and of course I must tip my hat to anyone who will doodle both Zootopia and HTTYD together.
