E THEME BY EXCOLO
index message history RSS random theme
I used to play Neo as a kid, but kind of stopped after Viacom bought the place. I figured I'd give it another go, seeing as I still like the pet designs (well, some of them) and still enjoy drawing them. A fresh start, not drawing on anything I had from before. This is going to suck.

I'll mostly just post the inane things I draw for my pets and rambling about how I can't afford anything. Feel free to say hi at some point, either here or on Neopets. My username there is, oddly enough, callmesmith. So, call me Smith.

If a creepy farmer named Adam is following you, it's me. I'm also a fairy who mines. That should be my neosona, man. A miner faerie. So yeah, those are my other blogs. :V I'm bad at secrecy.

Links to things under "navigate," just so you know. :V

Oh no, a BC ad. D:

I’m only gonna say it once, so no worries about spam, but I did enter my Wocky into the BC on a lark. It was probably a terrible idea. But, if you like the entry well, enough it’d be cool if you’d vote for her! Thanks much!

lmfaoooo the pastel kougra looks nigh-identical to the striped one.

What is the point.

I dunno, I think they’re different enough. I’d prefer it if the pastel one didn’t go by the pink/green pallet they’re using to distance it from the…

Mm, their rendition of pastel is really limited and boring because they’re sticking to green, blues and pink for pastel.

It’s probably speckled you’re thinking of? Maybe not so saturated or with a less yellowish (?? I can’t remember) undertone. Ah, well. It’s nice that they’re releasing more pets in some colours, but it’d be nice if they finished up some colours close to species completion first. Wow, sorry, that sentence fucked up.

It really is. :/ It’d be cool if they’d mix and match the colors they’re using or tossed in some yellow and cyan, maybe even some magenta. :3 Magenta makes a great pastel, it’d be prettier than the pink they’re using, anyway.

Yeah, that’s the one. XD They’ve got a strong forresty green for that color, a mint version would be pretty but terribly similar, I think. But yeah, a new color’s cool, but they’ve got a massive backlog on other colors, even really simple ones. :P

I dunno, I think they’re different enough. I’d prefer it if the pastel one didn’t go by the pink/green pallet they’re using to distance it from the striped, but it’s not a total copycat. The striped one’s more cotton candy colored while the pastel one’s more minty than anything else.

It’s still a close similarity, colour scheme-wise. There are more pastel colours than, well, various shades of pink and blue-green.

They could have recoloured the eyes too, at least. The bright yellow’s jarring.

It is, though that’s a little hard to avoid, now that Neopets has so many colors to begin with. It’d really help if the pastel didn’t have pink stripes, basically, like if TNT didn’t limit the pastels to being either green/pink or blue/purple. Pastel’s a flawed color, if not in theory than in practice, but it wouldn’t be so much if they didn’t already have colors that used similar color schemes, like striped or cloud.

But yeah, leaving the eyes yellow was a bad choice. :P At least they could have washed them out a bit or switched to green.

ah yes. nothing screams minty like green and pink.an actual minty scheme would have been nice. the green has a muddiness to it..

^^^ A proper mint would be lovely, though then it might run into being too close to spotted, being another green color, just sans mysterious skin condition. Technically the green they’re using for the pastel is sort of close to actual pastel green, which is inherently muddy due to the low saturation (lots of grey). The pink’s not pastel at all, though. It might help if it were? The striped color’s pink is quite vivid, so maybe that’d distance them a bit more.

I care way too much about this than I should. :V Is there any point to discussing the silly pastel choices?

What have I done, what have I done? I’ve entered one of my pets for the next BC, this is going to be terrible. At least it’s a pretty enough picture…

wow now i’m pissed i legit already bought the 400k paintbrush for this petpet too what the hell am i supposed to do now

Change your site language? They don’t like petpets because of the name, so changing the way the name is read changes how they react to them. Same for books and food. I’m pretty sure, anyhow.

Do not accept. It’s probably impossible to trade or something. That’s how the “item worth the same/more” offers work.

Okay, I’ll probably end up turning it down, then. :B Scrolls, bah, who needs ‘em!

Edit: Oh, hey, they withdrew. I took too long, I guess.
