I didn't realize this picture got into the Art Gallery until someone pointed it out! I submitted it for Discovery of Meridell Day but they published it early, I don't know what's up with TNT lately.

I've always been fond of Meridell ever since I joined Neopets (it was still sacked by Darigan's armies at that time). The small filesize requirements crushed it with dithering, but at least I can upload a high def version here.

Love the colors on this <3 

Gotta say I adore all of your artwork - especially the Neopets works which make me feel very nostalgic.

Thank you. I am notoriously nostalgic, and Neopets was such a big part of my childhood. Even despite the corporate takeover I haven't been able to shake it.

This is the best piece of art I've ever seen on neopets ^_^
JumpStart can't do anything right, everything's dead, and I've been on the site for 14 years .  .  . 
Man, if you were the one illustrating everything, the site would regain popularity overnight XD

Unfortunately I think it would take a team of more than one artist to bring life back into the site, but it's been a dream to work for Neopets since I was 11 or 12, and in fact that was the catalyst that really started me drawing.

I always wanted to work for Neopets too, back in Ye Olde Days, but now I'm afraid they're too far gone. It's such a shame. I always love seeing your art, though =]

This picture is overall just awesome, but I got to say, my favorite part is your little pink musketeer dude.

Thanks! He appears in a comic I'm working on, alongside Jack of Hearts.

Are you going to post the comic to DA?
