Zootopia: Nick Wilde
Went to see Zootopia and was blown away with how good it is, on so many levels. But the character designs are what really stood out to me. Cory Loftis really killed it! Disney has always been the best at designing compelling, anthropomorphic characters. My favorite has always been Robin Hood. But Zootopia takes the aesthetic of movies like Robin Hood and pushes it so far above the bar. Nick Wilde is such a great character. I love his expressions, his body language, and how it all works perfectly with Jason Bateman's voice acting. Plus, I have a thing for foxes, especially cartoon foxes. So I had to sketch him up. And then I colored him using some new photoshop brushes. I'm pretty happy with how he came out and I hope I captured some of his cool, laid back spirit. What do you think?
