Feel free to add more that I may have missed

Zootopia study. I tried to take a picture of zootopia and insert Nick and judy in it, matching the colours/values to those of the scene without reference. Harder to do than it sounds! Colours can change drastically depending on the overall mood of the scene and you need to consider how the light behaves. I had to take into account that its all in shadow and that the sky would cause some indirect lighting on the parts facing a particular direction. I am quite pleased with the colours I ended up with in the end!

Cohabiting Days - Nick After Bath

I just want to draw a scene where Judy sees Nick muscles and faint. This picture also provide me a chance to practice male muscle since I’m not very good at drawing body part.

Have you have seen a Nick’s picture drawn by a Japanese artist called RaizinnDX. If you remember, Nick looks so damn hot in that picture. (If you don’t know, that pic is about Nick brushing his teeth, winking and smiling.) I think this story background is that pic, tho.

When I was a kid, I thought Zootopia was this perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, real life’s a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be.
