Belated Happy Holidays from the King sisters, and a Happy New Year!!

My sister and I have both played Neopets for over fourteen years, and have long entertained the idea of spending our Christmasses together with our pets, in her Inn on Terror Mountain, were Neopia a real thing. It may also have had something to do with us playing the games together on our first shared computer, while snow drifted down outside to the tune of a twinkling string of purple Christmas lights, but as a result Neopets has always been kind of intertwined with the holiday season.

Also kind of a 'Kick Your Own Artistic Ass' and seasonal comic all at once, as this was a redraw of an older comic I drew years ago in 2011, but never submitted to the Neopian Times. Why not kill two birds with one stone and earn a shiny trophy with it?

Aaaaa <3 I love how warm the colors are and the lighting and just wow. <3 Aw, Shamine, it's beautiful. And how cool it is to compare between this one and the old one. I loved the original when you first posted it, but to see the improvement and the warmth and everything is just inspiring.

Happy Holidays, love <3

Thank you! Horace remains one of my favorite characters to draw, even though I don't get many occasions for that anymore.

 Oh my gosh, I can see so much improvement on these two different comics. omfg   The whole comic in this one is gorgeous everything about this is so bright and colorful with hint of adding some Christmas decoration that gives magical and warmth feelings. :heart:  

:giggle: Beipust is such a little trouble maker even if he's an angel. lol.  I love all the expression you given on them even Menduell at the end ;P 

Awesome work on this and you and your sister have good late Merry Christmas and happy new year!Merry Christmas Sign Happy New Year 2011

Charm is just oozing off this piece, it's so sweet! And good God, the improvement between this and the 2011 one is just astounding. The expressions are more vivid, the colours pop out of the pages so well, and the last panel showing all of the pets is such an awesome addition.

The Neopian Times is an official Neopets e-newspaper that publishes comics, stories, and articles from their players regularly every week. I used to draw a lot more comics for TNT, but it's dropped off significantly in the last few years.

Been playing since I was 12 years old, back in 2002 or 2003. Can't say I'm particularly active anymore, though, but it's still nice to draw my pets and try to relive some of the good old days once in a while.

Dat development, though. What a fantastic contrast between then and now. You've certainly leveled up. Happy Holidays!
