  1. Hi y'all! I'm actually the artist behind the front cover's art (both our first one last year as well as this year's!) and I can answer some questions! I work for Geekify Inc and we have a contract with Neopets for making officially licensed products but unfortunately we don't have as close of a connection to the actual Neopets team enough to make canon stories like the usual Advent Calendars on the site! (I wish, though!) The inside of the flap is just going to have the chocolates, shaped into molds I helped design based on some of the items from the site, like the snow paintbrush, a Snowbunny eating a negg, a Fir, a christmas negg, a christmas-painted meowclops, an angelpuss... there's a lot of really christmassy items I picked out and cleaned up for the chocolate company to make these chocolates into, but I'm not gonna spoil all of them--then there's no surprise!
  2. Woah woah woah wait... Sophie's hair is in a low ponytail?? I thought her hair was down all these years!
  3. Actually, the legality of vasectomies has never been up for debate in the US--it's legal as long as you're 18 years or older, and will continue to be so. It's why a LOT of people are upset about the double standard of reproductive health care for people with uteruses, because those with a vas never have to request permission to receive a vasectomy (other than referral from a primary care physician like all specialized surgeries). However, those with a uterus have, depending on the state, to receive written or in-person permission from their husband/father or will otherwise be given a TON of shit by their doctors if they want a hysterectomy. Go figure, right?
  4. @Aquamentis12 I'm so disappointed in you. @AngelóI'm so sorry you have to move to the US to be with your fiancee, honestly it would be a lot better for both of you if you weren't living here right now. A lot of already-existing problems with our country are getting worse and worse right now, and I wouldn't recommend anyone to move here. ><; The news about Roe VS Wade being overturned is incredibly disheartening for many reasons, one of which is the fact that the decision was made by only a handful of people, all of whom have perjured themselves by overturning Roe VS Wade. They had sworn at their confirmation hearings that they wouldn't and... well... did. They lied under oath. Not only that, but all of the things Aquamentis said in his reply are completely false, and recycled talking points from the last twenty years. Trust me, I heard them plenty growing up in an anti-choice household and until I got older and started hearing from the other side, I used to believe they were true. Also the coy language around "debating" is part of the typical toolkit that anti-choice parents/pastors/teachers strictly teach, because to them, the concept of whether or not a person should have autonomy over their choice to reproduce is a "debate", and not a form of state-sanctioned violence against people with uteruses. (Especially cis-gendered anti-choice men. It's never "real" to them, it's a chesspiece.)
  5. Hey there! For me personally I draw using an apple pencil on a Surface Pro, it's pretty much the only thing I can use while laying down (because of my sciatica)!
  6. I'm thinking of making another reply to this thread with information for more House Jade Trades members, but which would be more exciting to learn about: the head-honcho herself, one of the two main shopkeepers, one of the artisans whose instruments are sold through House Jade Trades, or one of the cargo movers/company representatives from Mystery Island?
  7. Continuing work on our Neopets Tarot deck today! I can't wait to see everyone's reactions to this deck, and to each piece of art in the set! Today's card is the nine of wands, which signifies feeling haggard and worn down by our challenges before reaching our aspirations. We're so close to reaching them, but we've already suffered so many defeats in the past--are we going to succeed, or fail? This card, if upright, shows it's time to keep trying because the finish line is close in our sights, but if it's inverted (or upside-down) it means we're letting our stubbornness or paranoia lead us into continual trouble. What sort of aspirations or goals do you feel like you're close to achieving, but need one more sprint towards?

  8. So it's been all these years since the initial fight over the Obelisk and every month we continue fighting for boons, and sometimes it feels like this plot thread has been pretty much abandoned! But if the Neopets team were to make a console/app fighting game for the Obelisk War, I wonder what sort of plotline it might have? Would it cover the events of the first wave, since we know how that ends, or would it actually show what the Sway is going to do with the Obelisk? What do you all think? And as far as gameplay, what sort of game(s) do you think it'd be cool for it to be like? I know there's "Thems Fightin Herds" that was inspired by My Little Pony, and that has a sort of Street Fighter-esque fighting style, but what do you all think? Would it be cooler to make it top-down, like League of Legends, or would you want to play something differently? (For context I don't work for a game development company but I'm super curious what y'alls thoughts would be!)
  9. Oh! The description on the first one is off!
  10. Oop--that's probably from my old site! I need to update that one the way I made my portfolio site, aimeescholz.com ^^; But thank you so much! I use photoshop exclusively, though I really ought to get my feet wet with illustrator and storyboard pro... u u; It's been a while since I've worked on any animation work (full time work has kept me so busy!) but I actually got my bachelor's in cinematic arts & technology with an emphasis in animation, so it's definitely a passion of mine. If I could, I would love to be a key animator, character designer or storyboard artist for music videos or indie projects, or possibly indie video games or educational games. ' v ' I wanted to work in children's television animation when I was in high school, but I'm not sure if I'll ever get that opportunity. I guess I've just gotta keep my ear to the ground and feel for where the universe is pulling me, and prepare myself as best I can!
  11. Uh huh! It's so exciting to see my work in the merch partners tab on the site, I'm pretty sure 12-year-old me would've FLIPPED. Especially since they even used my space faerie art for the "untold adventures of the space faerie" book! Other than Neopets I'm working on a couple of projects set in a post-apocalyptic setting! One is a picture book called Little Wolf, and another is a graphic novel called A Courier's Message, but I also do commissions, my little pony fanart, adoptable designs, things like that. ' v ' And I also have an instagram and deviantart, but those are pretty sparsely updated as well. ^^; You can find me most places under "FunandAims" but on deviantART I'm Aim-mod. (because I'm AWFUL at coming up with a consistent name for myself...)
  12. Aww thank you! It's been a while since I updated it, but I'm really proud of the work I've got on there ' v ' I mostly upload work to my twitter, but honestly I need to get better about uploading anywhere these days.. ^^; I have artwork, I just never make the time to post! If nothing else you can see some of my other neopets art on Geekify Inc's online shop? Currently I'm the sole artist behind our Neopets line and it's honestly a dream come true to make official Neopets stuff >// w //< https://geekifyinc.com/product-category/neopets/
  13. Thank you so much! ^^ It's actually just an old paper texture from the site Lost and Taken, they have a ton of amazing free-to-use textures. ' v ' I just hope I get some folks interested in actually RP-ing with these kiddos... u v u;; Maybe after I post about some of the other characters in the company!
  14. Oh unfortunately I don't have any written down! Closest thing I have to that is a little blurb on my pet's page, Abyss_girl_5!
  15. Oh that's awesome! I'm so glad you like 'em, I'm hoping we can come out with more pins as time goes on--especially original design pins, those take a bit longer but it feels more personal, yknow?
