Wow I remember this guy Neopets and I was verry fanatic of NEOPETS ! ^___^

neopets it's my internet crack. Once I start I'm on it a lot and then have to wean myself off again XD

Neopets was such a huge part of my childhood, in fact I credit it with inspiring me to take my art more seriously. I wanted to join the team so badly so I practiced drawing all day, every day. Despite the corporate takeover I haven't been able to shake it, so now I embrace it.

there's another artist I know who did the exact same thing and now she's at HBO, you might know of her she's on DA too, claire hummel. I love that sites like that can inspire a new generation of artists. I tried to join when I was in 5th grade but my mom and I could not figure out the site XD

been a member since middle school, wow that's a long time. If they sold xweetok plushies I'd totally get one.

now you're going to get me started again! My pets are prob real hungry *sob*

Sorry for the belated reply! I meant to say this AGES ago--I know Claire Hummel! Well I don't know her, I know her art. Honestly she's one of the artists I found very early on this site, through her Neopets work, and I've been following her for years. I was so envious, she always seemed one step ahead of me; when I was in high school she was working at Neopets, when I was in college she was already working for big games. *sob* She will always be one of my big art idols, and a lot of my current style came from her work.

Ugh, Xweetoks! I never like them ... them and Ogrins. But it turns out my distaste was justified. Those two pets were the last "fuck you" from Adam and Donna Powell, the founders of Neopets, when they quit the company and handed it over to ViaCom. They'd had enough of the political bullshit they had to deal with, and thought both the designs and the names were the stupidest things they'd ever heard. It was like leaving with a great big April Fool's joke.

oh my god that's hilarious!XD

ugh OGRINS! Such an ugly design and name, hurts my eyes. The name Xweetok, BLEGH! 
Well if you're gonna go out out, go out with a bang pissing people off I guess 
I love how artists have passive aggressive ways of getting back at people through art haha

I feel that final "fuck you" by having an xweetok, there's never any clothes or paint brush options for them!

aw that's so sweet! Yeah Claire's great, I love how open she is about her art process and telling people how she goes about her research.
But look at you! You're doing fantastic! You, Claire, and a few other artists were/are the best part about deviant art for me.

Poor Vandargyre owners .... they must have even fewer options, and don't have years old old, dynamic art to rifle through like all the other pets do.

Compared to Claire and her peers (Nicholas Kole is another fave) I still feel shadowed, but that's a sensation I'm getting used to. The industry is pretty cutthroat, it helps to remind myself everyone else is probably looking over their shoulders and glancing at everyone else's art same as me.

When did Vandargyre come to? That one's not too old right? Those poor owners, I bought a wig for a Vandargyre. I didn't know it was for that neopet because I didn't recognize the name I just thought it was a strange name for a wig lol. That's how I found out about that neopet.

Nicholas is such a sweetheart, I love talking to him on twitter. What he's been doing on the ipad is phenomenal! The way he paints, WOW!

I know what you mean I glance at other people all the time and think that, but I like that even though we compete against each other for the same jobs sometimes we still wish for our peers to succeed. It's like one big collaborative family sibling rivalry.

I'm honestly not sure, I don't keep on top of Neopets news like I used to. It's just such a big part of me growing up in those formative years it's hard to shed completely.

I love Nicholas's stuff so much, both his old, hyper-detailed lineart and his new painting stuff. It's just surreal and so unfair how good he and Shoomlah are at seemingly everything they put their mind to! I feel like I still have so far to go before I am anywhere near close their levels of AMAZING.

xD I love the Advent Calendar videos each year. This one was cute too...but yes, he was grinding.

Sloth vs. Space Faerie is one of my favorite conflicts. He's my favorite villain, she's my favorite faerie. It's so hard to choose a side!
SmokinCute Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, for sure. He's an amusing villain. :D <3

Oh, has literally been years since I've been on the Neopets site! Still loved playing Meerca chase...
Quarter-Virus Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2016  Professional Filmographer
Meerca Chase is a big fave for me too. It's on my favorite games list and part of my daily cycle, if I'm grinding.

Unfortunately, my work week has it so my days off are Christmas eve/ fun games for me. Sigh.
