Hi again everyone. For this week’s Art of the Day Collection, we’re paying tribute to another of our favorite artists; the amazingly versatile Aar0njay.

As you’ll see for yourself in a minute, there is likely no other Zootopia fanartist that works in as many different mediums and/or art styles as him. And not only is Aar0njay a talented individual in his own right, he’s always generous in his praise of his fellow Zootopia fan-artists. Go to his Twitter page sometime and you’ll find that perhaps half his posts are retweets of other peoples’ work.

Not only that; I personally know of two people that have commissioned artwork from Aar0njay, and they can’t say enough good things about him–or his work.

And on the subject of his work, let’s get to it. Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the artist some love by clicking on the source-links.


We open with series of images, dedicated to our favorite fox.

Like many of us, Nick often has trouble waking up in the morning..

And now, let’s get into some pics of him and Judy together.

Of course, just before he snaps the selfie, they make horns behind each other’s heads with their fingers.

And now, some WildeHopps artwork from after our favorite fox became a ZPD officer. 

If you think he had trouble waking up BEFORE he became a fox-cop….

Another commission pic.  Note how Nick’s tail is furred, while Kodi’s is clearly a plastic facsimile; a very nice touch.

Here we have Nick and Judy with a character created for the ZPD Files comic.  Looks like our fox is being a smartmouth…again!

Here’s a pic Aar0njay created for the Qalcove World Tour tribute.  Did we not say that he was ever-generous towards his fellow artists?

We wrap things up with two items we featured very recently…but are just too good not to include here.  Here comes Aar0njay’s take on the Nick and Judy plush toy.

And finally…

Calm down, Judy…it was only a dream.  You didn’t really turn into a stuffed animal.  (Gotta lay off that spicy stuff before bedtime, though…)
