Welcome to Traditional Artists of Neopia! This is an art gallery full of traditional pieces by different Neopets users! Just read the FAQ and neomail me (tiketot4) to submit a picture! Put your 400x400 picture on a petpage or lookup and send me the link.

October 23, 2010: Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been updating this page much! I hope to be advertising it on the boards more though, so hopefully we'll get some more art here. I just want everyone to know that submissions are NOT in fact closed, so feel free to neomail me with your picture!
I also fixed a few things in the layout and I updated the FAQ with some new questions and I changed some of the old answers to be more accurate.
August 25, 2010: Edited the colours of the layout and put up some new pictures.
Q: Can I submit a picture?
A: Yes! Of course! Just shoot me a neomail. I will not turn anyone down without good reason.
Q: What is this?
A: This is a place where people can send me (tiketot4) an image of a picture they drew, and I will put it up in the gallery. It's to honour all the awesome traditional artists on this site!
Q: What is this 'traditional' art you speak of? :U
A: Traditional art is sometimes referred to as "hand drawn"- basically, art drawn by hand without a computer or anything like that. It can be with pencils, markers, crayons, paints... pretty much anything.
Q: Does my picture have to be a certain size?
A: I want them all to be 400x400 pixels. It saves me time and makes it faster to do the coding, and no awkward squishing of pictures. I will no longer be making exceptions!
Q: Can I enter a digital picture?
A: NO! It must be traditional. If you edited it a bit in a digital program, it's still considered traditional by me, though. I know that a lot of scanners can ruin the quality.
Q: Is this a contest or something?
A: No. There are no prizes or winners WHATSOEVER. It's just a gallery of traditional art.
Q: Does my picture have to be amazing?
A: Of course not! Artists of all skill levels are allowed to submit a piece. Just try your best!
Q: How will anyone know I made the picture?
A: I will link your image to your user lookup, or to another page such as an art page if you specifically request it. Feel free to put your username on the image, as well.
Q: What do you have against digital art!?!
A: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I ADORE digital art. In fact, I probably do more digital art than traditional. I just wanted a page to show how awesome some of the traditional artists are, since we seem to be looked down upon! No longer will this be!
Q: Can I enter more than one picture?
A: Sorry, I want only one picture per user. But if you want, you can change the picture that is up there to a newer one.
Q: Does the picture have to be Neopets-related?
Q: What if someone steals my picture?
A: No, it does not have to be. My only concern is that it must be appropriate; don't submit anything that could get either of us in trouble. If you are unsure, you should double check with TNT's rules.
A: Honestly, there will always be art thieves on this site and there's nothing we can do to stop them. It helps if you put watermarks on your picture
. If I find that someone has stolen a picture off of this page, I will try to contact TNT about the problem, and I suggest you do the same. Art thievery is not okay!
