As many of you are no doubt aware, last week the Zootopia Fandom was saddened by the news of the passing of Alps Sarsis, author of the Guardian Blue fanfic series. What many people may not know is that he was also an artist–and a very good one–producing illustrations and cover pics for his fanfiction stories, as well as some great fanart pieces, and a slew of wonderful non-Zootopia pics.
And so today, we pay tribute to Alps Sarsis’ artistic talents with collection of his artwork, Zootopian and otherwise. Godspeed, brother, we’ll miss you.
We open with a gallery of artwork, dedicated to Alps Sarsis’ fanfiction.

We wrap things things up with a series of Alps Sarsis sketches, concept pics, etc., published here for the first time. Big thanks to fellow Zootopia Fanfic authors and Sarsis fans, LapisLucius42 and O.H._Shoot, for providing them.
An early concept sketch for the cover of Guardian Blue, Season 1. Some things remained the same, others though were changed around. Case in point, Skye about to learn that those stripes aren’t the product of Nick and a bottle of fur dye.

Another Sam, New Reynard’s unofficial greeter. He looks sweet…that is, until you try to kindly educate him that Robin Hood is a fictional character.

Remember Honey, the survivalist Ratel from the ‘Tame Collar’ version of Zootopia? Here she is, geeking out in a scene from Sheepless in New Reynard.

Speaking of Honey, this exchange between her and Lieutenant Richter Bay didn’t happen ‘on screen’ in Guardian Blue–but we like to think it happened ‘off screen’, heh, heh.
