Hello everyone~ my name is Ino and I am a 30 year old Pisces who is in love with drawing and words. you'll never see me without my pen, notebook, or laptop. I am often mistaken to to be a lot younger than my age due to my small stature and baby face. I like to create comics and Webtoons with my twin sister, Aria. I draw for fun and am NOT pursuing it as a profession. My mom and sisters are better artists than me... However, I have my own style that I like to portray on Neopets. I am currently writing a book and studying up on my Korean since I'm planning to move to South Korea in the near future. my dream is to publish many books and one day finding my soulmate. Right now, I am working as a freelance writer, getting my English Teaching degree, and working as a Supervisor at a fancy hotel. I live in a cozy home with my identical mirror twin sister, granny, an old shaggy dog named Cinnamon, and our Shiba-Inu Jolie Momo. I adore creating new things! Feel free to get to know me more in the Crayon Guild or by Neomailing me. Take a look at my art updates... They are usually uploaded as spoilers to a next comic I'm working on.
The making of Getting Granny Naham
I don't have any special tools to create my character art. I just use a free sketch pad online and draw with my handy-dandy mouse. I've always wanted to make a Neopet comic strip but never found the time or tools to breathe life into my characters and storyboard. One day I was browsing through the pound and I passed what looked to be a Grey Painted Ogrin. Thankfully it wasn't adopted when I came across it a second time. I adopted the Elderlygirl Ogrin and laughed when I found the gender to actually be male instead of female. The previous owner said that she had zapped Naham_ multiple times, but never had his gender swapped. My thoughts were that maybe Naham_ secretly just wanted to be a girl. Then it hit me. Why not make Granny Naham into a famous thief in Neopia and his master disguise is of an elderly woman? Since I already created a villain, of course I needed a hero. That's where my Robot Neopet Tenicie comes into play. Getting Granny Naham is a fun chase between the famous detective Tenicie along with his slightly crazy partner Moddet and the renowned thief Naham with his pretty partner Egonite. My twin sister, Aria, does the speech bubbles along with dialogue while I do the scenarios, art, and story-line. I'll be adding more fun characters as the comic progresses. Feel free to Neomail me ideas and if they're creative enough, as a reward, I can add one of your Neopets into a portion of my story. Enjoy… or as Granny Naham would say, "Oh, dearie… enjoy the read… 'Cuz if you don't, I'll drown you in Neopia's rocky Ocean and then roll you out and fry you into bloody ghost toast."
Age: 13years/ 26yrs old in human years
Occupation: Renowned Thief around Neopia
Likes: Fooling others, a pink Usul named Vivihneo, stealing very expensive and rare items, Neopoints, Neocash, diamonds, fried eggs and scallion tortillas, and pretending to be Granny Naham.
Dislikes: Fake gold or diamonds, cheap rings, Tenicie, food below the price of 3000np, and old men hitting on Granny Naham.
Goal: To retire in the Faeries laps of luxury.
Shhh… I am an Ogrin disguised as an old woman…
Why is that?" you may ask.
Well then take a seat and I'll tell you my story.
So if you have got some butter toffee popcorn,
then chew is slowly for I'm about to unfold the story of my secret identity.
At first glance, you'd believe I'm a lovely, innocent, old Ogrin.
Alas! I'm a MAN in disguise, of a sincere dear elderly lady;
Scheming and plotting disaster is what I love to do most passionately,
so I weaseled my way into a clueless Neopet family.
I am a well-known thief all over Neopia;
And my favorite foods are simply Fried Eggs and Scallion Tortillas.
The closest to ever catch me is an irritating Robot Gelert detective
by the name of Tenicie.
He just won't let me be... it's so infuriating.
Anyways, you can call me Granny Naham.
Doesn't that sound as sweet as a Yellow Cybunny Frosted Graham?
I'm planning to leave this clueless household,
That is, after the Defenders of Neopia give up in my pursuit.
This may take a while since I've stolen more loot
than the Snowager's cave of treasures,
Though this job leaves me little leisure…
I wouldn't give it up for World of Neopia!
Since you now know who I am… I've got an idea…
Maybe you can hide this pricey book called A History of Chias.
Age: Year 7 on second lifespan./ 28yrs old in human years
Occupation: Secret Detective
Likes: Playing the Violin, watching beauty contestant winners with hologram sunglasses, Petpet Watson, and smelling mini baby hot dogs since they were once his favorite food back when he was a normal Neopet.
Dislikes: Boredom, bad violin playing, every form of bubble teas, liars, and injustice acts.
Goal: To catch Naham and marry Egonite.
I am not a hero
I am not even a good robo,
I just play the violin, refusing
Speech for day on end,
I am an addict without a fix,
And am waiting to
Short-circuit or explode,
Desperately in need of my
Next high note.
I don't have friends, Watson
I am just a lonely Gelert brought back
From the dead who'd rather solve a case
With you than the fake who I am
I'm a Neopet, in faith,
Despite what I've said
I don't have friends, Watson
(I have you instead.)
Age: 10years/ 20yrs in human years
Occupation: On the go secretary for Granny Naham
Likes: Doing anything and everything for Naham, reading sad books, watching black and white classic films, earl grey teas, ice cream, and misleading Neopian Defenders in their mission in getting "Granny Naham."
Dislikes: Robots, grey eggs and bacon, and not being of any use to Naham.
Goal: To always be by Naham's side.
Be near me now,
My tormentor, my lover, be near me—
At every hour when you're on the run
And I feel my unrequited love for you around my paw,
Its blue-gray anklets of pain clinking with every step,
Like my love, I'll hide you from your pursuers.
Though your greed for Neopoints consumes your heart,
I'd rather be near you than ever apart.
For now and always even disguised
As my old and dear grandmother
Be with me,
My tormentor, my lover, be near me—
Now and forever.

Dislikes: Granny Naham... And old Neopets in general since her adoptive Gran Gran is such a pest.
Goal: To be a well-known reporter and to be the wife of the famous Detective Tenicie.
This Pink Usul sets herself on a pedestal of a throne
A pen and notebook paper frenzies her pink face.
And though her ears may seem outgrown,
She carries them with pride and grace.
She's always cross and quick to cry
Still, she can never lie.
Sometimes her tongue can be mean and sharp,
Then there's her sweet side like a magical floor harp.
She encourages Neopets to bare their soul.
For her goal is to be the best Neopian Times writer…
However, she'll lift a spirit when they're feeling low.
And if a Neopet happens to stumble and miss their goal,
Expect her to say, "No way! I told you so.
