Wow... It's been over 6 months since I last updated. During that time I've honestly lost interest in the entire game which made me lose interest in all the aspects within the game (mall,pages).
I am slowly getting back into game and will be working on the site throughout the winter break! However before I am able to start anything new I am trying to make my mind remember my coding and artistic tricks keke. So please bear with me

Rules & Guidelines

  • I will create buttons for any sites.

  • I will only create buttons with neopets images as I find it difficult to work with colours on non neopets images.

  • You may request again after your request is finished and as long as requests are open.

  • I will always respond to your neomail whether it was accepted or rejected. If I have not replied within 2 – 3 days please resend your form.

  • Linking back is mandatory, I will accept 2 types of link backs: The button itself to link back to Craft, and a visible text linking to Craft.

  • I will not create any graphics for neopians with stolen content/layout. If I find out that you have done so I will immediately contact the individual you have stolen it from.

  • If you have read the rules please put the word popcorn somewhere in your form.

    Button Shine Animation










    Shine Animation

    Hey, Today I will be teaching you how to create the shine animation on buttons using gimp.

    Throughout this tutorial I will be guiding you using images as well as explaining it through text. Drag the images to the address bar for the complete size


    To get started first create a transparent layer on top of your button layer you can change the name of the layer to make things easier although it is not required. Then select the blend tool (circled in red) and change its selection to Flare Rays Radial 1

    After you got that all sorted drag your cursor across the part of the transparent layer the thickness of the lines depends on how far you drag your cursor. The farer you drag the thicker the line. You can create your lines at various angles.

    Move your first shine layer to the edge of your button (In this case to the left). Duplicate the shine layer and move it a bit more to the right. Duplicate it and move it more to the right and so on until you have reached the other end of the button.

    Once you have completed the shine layers, duplicate your button layer underneath each shine layer. So that it becomes: Shine Layer, Button Layer, Shine Layer, Button Layer and so forth.

    Keep one of your button background so that there is a some space between each shine.

    Merge 1 Shine layer and 1 Button Layer so that it becomes one. Continue doing this with the rest of the layers making sure that there all merged. Make sure you have one button layer that has no shine on it, this will be used as breathing space between the shine.

    After everything is merged you should have one layer that has no shine on it. Duplicate this as many times as you need you feel is needed, in my case I have duplicated it 8 times.

    Now for the last part go to filters - animation - playback to view your button as if it was animated, if your happy with the results go to file - export as - in the pop up box select as animation and loop forever.

    Here is the button we made in this tutorial

    With Jenny making a site for button and banner requests. This button surely caught my attention. Despite that she always has been making banners and buttons for me and for our mall, surely with her new link back button with the dark themed style of Eliv Thade, and the animation of showing a light in this dark button! It really captured my attention!
