Zootopia Comic: Fine Dining by FigN01 Zootopia Comic: Fine Dining by FigN01
I had a lot of fun thinking up this comic. It got me back to my roots, like when I was making MLP fan comics based on released episodes. Good times... you can find them deeper in my gallery here. As for this guy, there are 2 themes I wanted to get at- 1. No one ever addressed what carnivores in their universe eat, and 2. There is a LOT of fan content that ends up with these two smoochin one way or another. So much of that around. Sometimes life takes you in different directions.

So if you liked my comic-making here, then I have good news for you! I'm working on an original comic series called "Jubilation Strikes" with a published author. I might be biased, but I'm a total fan of it. If you hang around my page, I'll be sure to keep you up to date on its development through journals and a few submissions.

Just stumbled across this, I find it warped and hilarious.

I can't help imagining someone in the back room of that restaurant singing something from Sweeney Todd.

"It's priest, have a little priest..."

Demon242 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2016
I imagine there's actually a place like this literally Tundratown and is one of Mr. Big's 'illegal' businesses. This is because the imitation-meats are all made from bugs and other poor-tasting substitutes that make chewing on cardboard tastier, even if it does fulfill predator nutrient requirements. Still, doesn't stop predators from having no choice except to eat synthetic food while all the prey continue getting to eat what they naturally would. Kind of one-sided in my opinion. 

The part that makes serving real meat 'illegal' in Zootopia would be the restrictive definitions of "proper disposal of dead bodies", which basically only allows them to be cremated, buried in the ground, or used for medical studies. These definitions work nicely for us humans, but not so much for the predators in Zootopia, who have to rely on the manufacturers of their synthetic food. Or else they'll, you know, STARVE. 
neorenamon Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2016
I don't think fish, fowl or reptiles are sentient, so there shouldn't be a problem with predators getting meat that isn't from mammals.
Demon242 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2016
Purely from what we see in the movie, there isn't any way to say either or; Zootopia could be a purely mammal metroplex and you can easily figure reptiles, avians, and aquatics would each have their own needs and unique city architecture given the differences in their physiology from mammals. Granted, there could be a fair reptile and aquatic population in Sahara Square and the underwater district we see hippos emerging from at the start of the movie, but we don't see any so we can't say. 

It could very well be that those three species aren't sentient, but the possibility that they are allows for a ton of crossovers that make Zootopia's world and universe a lot more interesting, like imagining Zootopia is essentially somewhere in North America, Splatoon takes place in a submerged Japan, and the Star Fox series is either the future or just takes place on other planets in the same universe. 
neorenamon Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2016
Since it's only one movie, I guess they can't answer every question at once. Like how mammals can have roughly the same level of intelligence regardless of the size of their brain. Still, they never showed a body of water large enough for any population of cetaceans (whales, dolphins, etc). They also don't show any bats, flying squirrels or any other aerial mammals. Maybe that will be answered in Zootopia 2 (if it doesn't fall to the Sucky Sequel Syndrome).
Demon242 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2016
Lets hope so. A lot of movies lately having been coming down with SSS, but that'll hopefully just be a 2016 bug and we'll see much better movies in 2017.

And I'll bet those preys they're serving to the predators are Bellwether's goons.

I really hate how they skipped over what carnivores eat to stay healthy weight. I like the random crime-busting. Unexpected, but welcomed. I don't know why, but when I saw he rat chef I immediately thought of Ratatoullie.

Zootopia officially has Bug burgers
there is also a fish market in tundra town
so they eat fish and sea food too.
in the show we see, doughnuts, cakes, pies and other pastries
as well as Ice cream, cookies, and bread
all of which include Eggs and Milk
meaning in the Zootopia world there are Farms
on these farms Cows are hired or enslaved to produce milk for dairy products
Ask yourself did you see any female bovines anywhere in the movie?

and Chickens are hired or enslaved to produce eggs
if in Zootopia only mammals are intelligent
then it might also be the case that birds are farmed for poultry meats.

Scientifically there are certain factors that are required to evolve intelligence
1. Bipedal
2. Hands with opposable thumb
3. warm blooded
4. does NOT hibernate
5. Land Animal

these 5 factors are the basics required for higher evolution
these factors also mean basically very few non-mammals
could have possibly evolved alongside Zootopian Mammals

there is also the possibility the entire historical evolution of Zootopia
being the result of a genetics uplift experiment that was successful.

Dude, chill. It's just movie and a fun little fan made comic.
DemonicClone Featured By Owner Edited Aug 2, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
and I am within my rights to analyse
and critic both the comic and the show.
moncherrypie Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
No one said you weren't but you're kinda taking the fun out of it.
DemonicClone Featured By Owner Edited Aug 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I never forced you to read my comment and I never forced you to reply
my critique didn't take the fun out of anything
you complaining about my critique and wasting 5 minutes of your day
is taking the fun out.
it's all your own fault
so turn off your computer and go enjoy some fresh air
or end in a stress related early grave
your choice.
moncherrypie Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Dude, chill. No need to get all snooty.
rikoudu Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dude, if you saw the movie, there were only mammals in the society. Check it out again.
DemonicClone Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm well aware they only showed mammals.
1. the comic mentions Alligators, in such a way as to suggest intelligence at the same time as being exotic.
2. parts of the cast and producers have hinted that zootopia,
very well could have taken place in the same Reality as the older Disney film Robin Hood.
that older film had talking reptiles, and birds, alongside mammals.

if such was the case where were all the birds and reptiles in zootopia?
why was it called a "Mammal Inclusion Initiative" if only Mammals are intelligent,
and Only Mammals lived in Zootopia?

and Seeing as Milk can only be made from a mammal,
and Cows are the best source of milk by volume,
and Eggs are only gathered from Fowl,
what do Poultry and Dairy Farms look like in Zootopia?
Dairy cows obviously can't be paid an hourly wage,
otherwise ice cream and other dairy would be too expensive.
meaning it has to be volume based Consignment or Commission salary.
especially since I can't see Disney having Dairy farms as Sweat shops, or Slavery.

but what about Poultry farms?
do they only sell eggs? or do they also sell Poultry to Carnivores?

Anyway, birds aren't ok to eat in zootopia ?

Ratatouille all over again, just this time it's not about the cook but what the cook is cooking 😂😂😂

Great job on this!
