ALL of Neopets as a theme? Sounds pretty vague, but I like how open it is. Hm.... maybe I'll try to whip something up this time, although I'd need to read more on how to make sigs. It's a bit of an easier theme than the 7 holy virtues though, so that's nice x3

Yeah, a more pointed theme would be better for another reason: It allows for other Neopet themed SOTW competitions.

Something pointed like Faerieland, Altador Cup, or Acara's would really narrow the scope of this.

shrugs
i see what you're saying but
none of the other themes have even been closely related to neopets. even in the suggestions thread, nobody's mentioned anything related to neopets :p

I do agree that its a broad theme, however, it doesnt mean that there can't be other themes to do with neopets later down the track. Thanks robots for creating the new thread. Ill donate a royal pb too.

The theme is wide open but I don't think it's bad. I think if we had a number of specified neopets themes people may get bored with making neopets signatures. Sort of like "Oh no, not another neopets theme..."

Either way, I think it'll be interesting to see what people come up with... I think I suggested a theme, signatures about being frozen on neopets. Someone you easily incorporate that into this if they wanted to.

Anyway, thank for hosting likerobots and hooking us up with resources.

Gosh, this page is so awesome! ^^ Thank you for linking it!

I was looking at some of the backgrounds and noticed that a couple of them still have the work-in-progress version or the reference TNT used for making it to the side! Kinda like this one~ (http://images.neopet..._41e386758a.swf)

Totally gonna have to install Flash and somehow download these and check out all the different layers (and figure out how they made them so I can have a go too) :3

That's so weird lol I don't have that much experience with Flash. Are you wanting to open the .swf file in Flash and get the different layers? If so, I dont think you can do that. You'll need the original .fla file.

I would like to see people draw more, rather than just copy pasting O.o
It's the most easiest theme to draw.
