-----Hey there fellow neopian and welcome to my portfolio page! My name is Claire and I have been playing neo for over ten years. I like to use this page as a way of keeping track of everything neo related all on one page. Feel free to look around and send me a neomail if you want to chat.
-----As I have stated before, I'm Claire and I am a recent biology graduate. I worked in a lab field for almost two years when I decided I wanted to work in a more medical setting. I have recently returned to school in order to for fill the requirements that all hospitals need in order to allow someone to work for them.
-----In my free time, I enjoy a large range of hobbies. Gardening has always been a great passion of mine and it is something that has brought my family and several friends closer throughout the years. I have recently taken up making pottery as well, although I'm honestly not all that good at it. :P
-----Reading has also been a huge passion of mine. Science Fiction and Fantasy are my favorite genre of novels.
-----I'm rather obsessed with sushi as well as any type of seafood. I would eat it everyday if I could afford it!
-----On neo, I tend to focus my attention more so on the creative side than I do worrying about avies and neopoints. (Although I do enjoy watching my back account grow!) Over the years, I have learned to code and create graphics which I attempt to improve on a daily.
I have quite a few goals that I would like to eventually achieve on this addicting site:
1.) Finish Petlookups/Petpages: This is one of my top priorities at the moment. I feel like my pets are my number one priority and they are what make the site the most fun. Therefore, I'd like to show off how much I enjoy them by giving everyone a character and story. I know my art isn't the best, but I really love drawing and making layouts so I will really have fun with this goal.
2.) Get Every Pet a BC Trophy: Again, I really love doing things for my pets. I was never the best at art so it is always a big deal to me when I can enter and win something from the beauty contest. Luckily, most of the pets that I adore aren't exactly popular for the BC. But once I begin to BC the more popular species, It's going to be a spam-a-thon!
3.) Have 15K a Day for Bank Interest: The main reason I wish to have this is mainly for stock market purposes. When it comes to making neopoints, I'm honestly kind of lazy. :P So, I figured if I can just collect bank interest everyday and then invest it in the stock market, I'll be on my way to making lots of profit!
4.) Win the Userlookup Contest Twice: I've already won it once, which was an awesome surprise! I love making lookups so this had always been a goal that I have enjoyed working towards also.
5.) Finish Gallery and Win Gallery Spotlight: I've always wanted to get in the spirit of creative item collecting. I have a feeling that this goal will take a while with all of my other goals taking first priority.
I not normally a big fan of making this section as most days I don't have a lot of people neomailing me anyway. But, there are a few questions that I do seem to get quite often. This might save me some time responding to mail. But, even if you ask these questions I honestly don't mind too much. I'm not a mean person. :P
Did you make your lookup yourself? Yes, I almost always make my own lookup and as I have said before I really enjoy doing so.
Can you teach me to code? As much as I would love to, I can't. Most of what I've learned has been through trial and error and messing with codes over the years. I'm not a very good teacher, plus my coding skills are not up to professional standards.
Could you make me a lookup/graphic? I seem to get this one quite a bit surprisingly. I am honored that someone would like my graphics enough to request something, but I simply do not have the time to make something for everyone. I always feel bad telling people no. :(
Is Vurenia up for trade? Normally, I just ignore this question as I would think it would be obvious that she was a permanent pet from her lookup and petpage. Plus, I state on my lookup that my pets are not up for trade. But apparently it isn't obvious enough for people not to mail me about. Like I said, I don't get mad because it's just a game and people are human and it really isn't that big of a deal. -shrug-
Ravuna was the first pet on neo that I knew I was going to own one way or another. I love her coloring and her pose. It reminds me of a kind of fairy tale coloration. Plus I love fantasy creatures anyway.
Her form reminded me of a lioness, so I decided to make her character some sort of jungle themed big cat. Overall, I am happy with how she turned out, although I wish my poor art skills could do her better justice.
Ravuna was created the 5th of July in neo year 10. I couldn't afford a faerie paint brush at the time, but my luck had granted me a FFQ. With some hesitation I used the FFQ to paint her the lovely coloration that she is today. Some people may see this color as a 'waste' but I was and still am thrilled that I was able to paint her for cheap.

I've noticed that I seem to have a certain affinity to faerie pets. Like Ravuna, when faerie gnobrus were released, I knew I had to own one. Several times I had considered adopting one since a few went up for adoption several times, but none had any sort of name I could really get attached to. So I patiently waited.
Once the Faerie Ruins prize shop opened up, the cost of the faerie paint brush dropped drastically. At that moment, I hopped into action and bought one. Then I had traded for a name that I liked and then Masira the faerie gnorbu was born. Later, I had bought a faerie mazzew to match and I was completely and utterly thrilled.
For some reason, I see her character more deer-like than llama-like. It might be a little weird, but I feel like she is more graceful like a fawn and so I decided to draw her like one. Plus, I added antlers just because I wanted too. xD
