Makeables are on hiatus!
I removed my loooong rant about stolen art.
Please don't make me put it up again and make this page go poof.

They are becoming more and more popular!
Why? Quite simple : less work for the artist =3, everyone can get theirs, everyone can get the coloring style they prefer!
Remember to check the F.A.Q.
if you have a question!
- Do not claim them as yours or enter them in any contest. Do not sell them for real or fake money/points.
- Do not remove or mask my signature (you can move it if it's in the way).
- Do not trace them.
- Link back! (see box bottom)
- Alter (edit, modify) the lineart to best represent your pet.
- Just take them as they are (save them on your server, though).
- Flip the pictures.
- Copy-paste them on your pictures or layouts.
- Color some for friends/family/guildmembers.
- Use them outside of Neopets or for non-neopets characters.
- Show me how you colored them :)
Basicly, you can do almost anything with them, as long as you follow the 4 rules. That's quite simple, isn't it?
Note : You can use two or more linearts at the same time. For example, if your lupe have two tails and tusks, you can overlap the two existing bases. See the F.A.Q.
to learn how.
Note 2 : I get this a lot. You can't sell them for real or fake money/point/gold/whatever, or use them as a payment or part of a trade.
The logic is: you can't sell what isn't yours, unless you have the consent of the owner. And you don't have it, so there, you cannot sell them.
If you actually want to sell my colored makeables, you truly have a problem, and wouldn't make a lot of money anyways. Explanation? People who can't draw good, sellable pictures usually can't color right. The result is horrible. People don't pay for horrible art (sometimes they take you in pity and buy one, but that's it). So don't do it.

Requested Templates to be DoneToo many requests pilling up! Requests are closed!!
Please be precise when requesting a template,
or it may not end up like what you wanted.

an outfit and hair style, with ref if possible
Asking for shading of a certain template or different
clothes for anthros are not
Cat-like, no earstalks
Cat-like with fluffy tail

Remember, you can modify any makeable and mix and match different templates!
(It's a yukata, not a kimono, so shhh about the "plain-ness")

Here you will find items to add on anthro adoptables. Most can be used for both gender, but you'll maybe have to modify them so they look ok. You can also add them on normal (quads) makeables. You can modify these items.
The light purple lines are only there as a guide to place the items. Erase them on you final version of the makeable.
Female : neck, right hand, left hand
Rainy and Mage
I'm not really sure about those. If I get positive feedback, I might turn them into multiple species.
Tiny pixel hands are not the easiest things to daw .__.
Feel free to add falling raindrops or delicious muffins.
I wanted to do something similar to Rainy, but a little more dynamic. I'll also maybe make this one a multiple specie base.
Images below this are NOT makeables.
Please don't use them as such.
I've got trophies! =3
Thank you Ashamingly !
Thank you Pluffygal !
Colored In Makeables
When people send me link to the makeables they colored, or when I look around petpages, I often find really nicely colored ones! The coloring and the details make all the difference!
Here, I'll keep some of my favorites. Remember, don't take them if it's not your pet.
Cause what's the point in a makeable to make if it's never made 'cause not making a makeable makes no sence! "
Those are basically outlines of a picture, that you can color yourself. Some are just outlines, some have the shading provided, others have more things on (like wings, clothing, etc.). The outline remains the property of the artist, but the colorist owns its coloring. It's like team work. This is why you have to keep my signature on, but you can add "colored by -username-" on too.
In response to those accusing me of stealing the concept / idea / name of "makeable
I honestly don't know who did the first one or thought to do so. However, makeables are not only on Neopets; you can find makeables all over the Internet and in books. People ("dolls"), animals, buildings, objects have been made into makeables. You could even consider coloring books as a collection of them. At a certain point, someone decided to make Neopets ones, people liked the idea and maked their owns. That's all. Just like the 50x50 px patches (for quilts), there was a time there wasn't even one on Neopets, but they did exist elsewhere on the Web. Someone made a Neopet patch one day and now they're everywhere.
Makeable" is a word that means "that can possibly be done". So it does indicate what we're talking about (I think "modifyable" would be clearer, but it sounds horrible. Anyways.). "Makeable" is a term almost everyone interested in adoptables on Neopets understands. It identifies and defines a concept, just like the word "patch" does. This is why I use the word "makeable" here. I use it so people understand what I'm talking about. If a new term was to be invented and replace it, well I would use that word. It's that simple.
I'd like to remind you all that you can never prove you were the first one to think of something. Maybe someone did before, but forgot / didn't like it / didn't care. You can only be the first one to claim it.
I have come across at least three persons who claimed they invented makeables ( / thought of it first / created the concept / made the first Neopets ones / started the trend / etc.). So who am I to thrust? I, again, honestly don't know. However, I do thank whoever introduced that idea into Neopets.
So, in short :
I do not claim I invented makeables. I do not deny anyone the right to claim they did. I do not go around and flame those who do. I do not give myself the obligation to believe everything everyone says.
I do thank whoever brought it to Neopets. I do thank everyone who put time and effort into creating makeables.
Step 1 : The idea
Have a rough idea of what you want to draw. You may change your mind while drawing, but it's always nice to have some sort of plan.
For this tutorial,
I will draw the requested makeable template "Lupe with skeletal dragon wings". Since it's winged, I will draw that lupe in a flying pose.
Start with a specie and a pose, for example, a sitting lupe or standing kougra. If you need help with anatomy, look for animal pictures on Google or Corbis. Step 2 : Sketching
I almost always begin with a sketch on paper, which I then scan. If you don't have a scanner, you can sketch directly with your graphic program.
I use Photoshop 7.0, but you can use any program you have, although I suggest using one with layers.
Don't worry if your sketch is not perfect, it's easier to edit it with your graphic program than to erase and draw it again. Step 3 : Editing
Place your sketch on a layer and name it "sketch". Play around with the ContrastLuminosity tool until your drawing is clear enough for you to see the details.
Note: If you don't want to make your eyes to go mad and teary, create a layer named "bg" and fill it with a neutral color (I use pale cool brown).
On a new layer, trace over the sketch. Name the layer "lineart 1". Use a 1 pixel pencil of a contrasting color (I use purple). This is the first version of your lineart,
so it'll still be rough. Only draw the basic body for now; leave the wings and other "extras" for later.
Copy "lineart 1" and name it "lineart 2". Refine your drawing and fix the little problems. For example, on my makeable, I fixed the size and position of the
head and tail.
Continue copying your layers until you're happy with the result.
This method allows you to easily go back to the previous lineart you made in case you make a big mistake. You can also try out things without loosing your progress.
Step 4 : Adding details
Once you're happy with you basic lineart, you can start adding the details. Use a new layer and a new color. I named my layer "wings" and used blue.
Again, layers are your friends! Use them to create a basic sketch, then refine it on new layers. Step 5 : Finishing the lineart
When you have everything you wanted to have, merge down (Ctrl+E in Photoshop) your final "extras" layers with your final body layer. Name this layer "final
Use the paint bucket to make your final lineart with black. Crop if necessary. Add your signature.
If you want, you can shade your makeable, or leave it as it is.
To shade, create a new layer named "shading", and place it under your final lineart. That way, you won't alter it.
That's all! Now you have to upload your makeable and put it on your petpage. Be sure to clearly say that this graphic is a makeable. If you need an image host, try Photobucket.
