For the Win by Sycotei-B For the Win by Sycotei-B
With all the anticipation and the fact that this movie has entered it's 1st anniversary, it got me in the mood to make some Zootopia art (I may even be making a short-story comic about it). I'll admit that over the recent years, I've lost a little faith in Disney. I found it heart-breaking that they shut down their 2D Animation Department in 2013 just because the money moved on, like they were throwing away their very roots. Walt Disney himself must have been spinning in his grave... Moreover, I've found the more recent Disney-animated movies aren't as good as the ones I grew up with (Of course, I have high standards since I grew up with the Disney-Renaissance along with many of the other unforgettable classics). Tangled just seemed so...reducted and gave me more of a DreamWorks-vibe, and then there's that horribly-overrated one with that song with the hypocritical title (You know what I'm talking about).
When I first heard about Zootopia, at first I wasn't that interested. Possibly because the Furry Fandom kinda blew it out of proportion. However, after watching the trailers and seeing a more defined-story, I became more intrigued and joined some friends to see it premiere and it's easily become one of my most favorite Disney-movies. Cartoons involving anthropomorphic animals have always been my most favorite, but I really like how this one touches into the animal-aspects of it, rather than just any story that can involve humans. It was fairly clever to write a story involving two social classes of animals overcoming their differences, especially in this day and age. I also like the positive messages about accepting each other's differences, not giving up, and making an effort to make things better. Judy's by far my most-favorite character. She's adorable (pardon me sounding...I guess it would be called "speciesist" in that world?) and I love her determination and tenacity against any adversity (I wish I was more like that)> I also like how, as she struggles to overcome prejudice against her, that she also struggles against her own prejudice against predators. Of course, there were a lot of other likeable characters like Nick, Bogo, Gazelle, ect. There was a lot of good diversity among the various characters around the setting and that DMV scene never gets old XD So, despite my views on the modern Disney animated movies, Zootopia is easily one of the best of them that I've ever seen.

So to all of those who contributed to making Zootopia, congratulations! You all deserve a victory toot toot!

Basically you described how I felt about Disney and the industry and in some aspects I still do, but nothing can ever take away what Zootopia delivered. It truly is amazing for being a 3D animated film, the story and characters are endearing however they are animated. :)

Great job on this picture. :) Love Judy and Nick's expressions. :) :love:

Ah ha ha :D Now Nick can do the victory toot toot without worrying he has to rescind that.

Having said that though, now I'm imagining Woolter and Jesse in the audience heckling the two until Chief Bogo shoos them :XD:

This has got to be one of the best things you've done, and you've done a ton of awesome stuff. I love how you drew the two officers.

Fantastic work, bud.

I actually have you to thank for this. I remember I commented on one of your works saying "Zootopia deserves a victory toot toot!" That's what inspired this and it wouldn't have happened if you hadn't made it (I can't remember which one it was, but it had to be Zootopia-related) XD
