Much like how we started a fundraiser for the land maps, should we start a fundraiser for pet revamps?

The Dovu's came out gorgeous. Yet, they're oddly placed among the rest of the pets, most of which all have a very old art style and could really use a revamp!

Our main goal would be to revamp all basic colors-including CottonCandy, Ice, newly added Brown, and Snowdrift.

Whats your opinion?

I personally think some pets do need revamps and this would be a good way to do it.

If it gets extra support and money for the site for updates, I'd say so. I wish I could fund raise btu I don't have the money.

We should! The new revamps turned out great, so I can't wait to see what the others might look like. (:

I think all pets should get a basic-color revamp smile_cool.gif
its only fair.

I mean all exotic colored pets have completely different stances anyway than the basic colored pets, and they all work with the new style, so keep them the way they are.

If all basic colored pets are redrawn that would be good and basically a one time thing until another revamp is in order smile_laugh.gif

I just hope it doesnt make my love for Cobron and Trido less cause theres more competition with better drawn pets smile_laugh.gif

I find this difficult. Although I would like to see a revamp of basic colors, I myself would rather pay $20 for a new item then for a revamp.
But if we could all pitch in like $2 to $5, then this could be made possible.
So I say yes for the small amout of $.

that is true!
I would rather pay $20 to fund a pet then fund all basic colors.
Plus i feel like someone who doesnt like sharshels at all wouldnt want to fund a sharshel revamp.
Only the die-hard sharshell fans would.
I think.
Idunno..





I just think all pets should have a revamp, regardless of them being funded or not.

I know I'm alone here in voting no, because I never like when sites do revamps at all, but I understand fully why it's a good and logical idea.smile_yes.gif

Yes! :3 Honestly, I'd rather pay for an awesome revamp than a new color or a species.

Also, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get Myst to redo all the the other basic MPs. The dovu ones ares so amazing, and the rest are in desperate need of revamps. It will be nice to have a good "base" for all the MPs, so even the exotic colors are distinguishable. :3

^ im getting confused and thinking the new Dovu potions are exotic potions.
The exotic potions are distinguishable enough as it is.
If every potion got a revamp id get so confused as whats distinguishable and whats not xD

I agree, the Dovu is beautiful, though I never saw the old ones xD But I think some of the pets do need that revamp, though it should be small since more people would pay for a new color for a pet than for species revamps for basics :3 But ya, I like the idea, *first in line*

I'm not saying redo the exotic MPs, I'm just saying stick with a general idea for the future after (and if) the basic MPs are redone. xP

This, for example, looks awesome! But... you can't really tell it's a ridix MP.

1886.png1687.png1504.png
Or these. They're not bad art, but sometimes I think when people are drawing MPs they just don't give a poo about being consistent. xP xP The last 2 both have the same basic theme with the feathers i guess, but the first one doesn't compare at all. Like, if we start to get other potions with other uses, it's going to get really confusing really fast. xP

So you kinda want them to be like neopet morphing potions?

Same shape morphing potion and same design, just the color liquid inside is a different color...

potion_48.gif
^basic colored Kacheek Potion
pot_kacheek_disco.gif
^Exotic colored Kacheek Potion, same design just a different color to show that its a Kacheek






is that what youre trying to say?

Exactly this. I feel a lot of old pets should be revamped, but I myself probably wouldn't pay a huge amount for this... I'd rathet fund a pet/item set.

& we ripped up the ending, and the rules, and destiny, leaving nothing but freedom and choice.

I am not going to lie, I HATE doing the morphing potion for every pet request that has been requested, it is annoying and I am starting to run out of ideas on how to make them all unique...
I really want to stop making the MPs, it ruins the economy and everything!

Anyhow back one topic, I vote yes for many reason.
I love doing them, the money is very helpful towards me (coughcough), and well a lot of the pets here do need major revamps.

All the basic colors will be done to for pets that don't have the colors.

Pet revamps are part of a petsite IMO.

You shouldn't make users pay for the outdated art.

So are you saying to do a fundraiser like the custom color pets where one person puts in X amount of dollars and the pet of thier choice is done, or like a pool where everyone drops money in the pot and it's something like "donate and when we reach X amount X pet gets re vamp"? If so, I think the toss the money in the pot idea would be neat. Have a different pot for each pet, allowing people to toss money to whichever pet they want. Whichever hits X amount first gets the 1st revamp. The next to hit the amount, is done next, and so on and so forth.

As for the bottles, I have to agree with the neopets idea, and making ONE bottle for each pet and simply recoloring the liquid. It makes it much faster for the artists, and easier for collectors to see which ones go to which set. I'll be honest, some of the MP's confuse me and I really have to read and pay attention to what pet it's for. If they were all the same, I'd know which is a wulfer, which is a traptur, etcetc.

Of course i don't know exactly were all the money goes but it seems the site is relying way to heavily on user funding. They pay off of this is of course, we have no adds, which i like. If need be i'll help out if i can but i'd honestly rather fund a new pet or buy myself some ice cash.

never thought about that but thats true.
not many new colors or items on here unless its funded.
Except the new ancient traptur and flying dovu (were they funded, or just released because the plot?)

I agree with Crimes here. Too much stuff.. almost everything... is user funded now. Use the IceCash purchases to improve the site. JMO

I also wasn't trying to insinuate that the site is careless with money, or not using our money for good. I know staff needs to be paid, paying for the server and the like. I know its expensive. As such because i trust the staff to make good decisions and not mislead me, if you guys really feel you need our help to re vamp the pets, i will help smile_happy.gif Just wanted to clarify that XD
