Updates & Information
Welcome to Picturesque. We are a brand new Neopet image resource site. Specifically, we take images of user's Neopets, enlarge them, PNG them, and redistribute them here for everyone to use. Eventually, we'll also start taking images from around the site (wallpapers, games, etc) and make them into PNGs for everyone. (PNGs are images with transparent backgrounds; really good for graphic designers). See the information section for more about this process.
This site is strongly affiliated with Towairaito and is technically a section of it. This section was removed from Towairaito and moved to Neopets for easier access for users. It is a resource for people seeking HQ images of pets and various pet customizations. We do readily accept image requests and people who would be willing to let us take pictures of their pets (see donate and request sections for more).
We ask that you keep the credits on the images when simply featuring them (you may neomail if you need an exception). If you'd like to use the images in a graphic, it's alright if you don't credit us, though it would be nice. :3
To view the images, please drag them up to your URL bar.
As of December 10, 2009, we are officially open.
[1/1]: So, clearly Picturesque hasn't been updated in a while. Sorry for not saying anything about that. I have a few petpages and Picturesque tends to get neglected. So, the deal right now is that we're on open hiatus. A few people have sent me mails saying that they'd model their pets for me. Sorry if you did not hear a response. That what not intended rudeness. That was me thinking I could get around to your pets and then not being able to before the mails disappeared. So, as an fyi, we're on hiatus and not making any new pictures at the moment. Sorry!
[10/3]: Coconut Jubjub image added on request as well as an Island Kacheek image. Thanks to Punyichu for modelling. =)
[9/25]: Apologies for the momentously late updates. School tends to jeopardize my time once it starts up. :p Thanks to everyone for being so patient! Also, extra thanks to dean_winchester_fan for modelling their Royal Boy Hissi; _totally_awesome_ for modelling their Baby Usul, Mutant Scorchio, & Clay Jubjub; and puppylicious3648 for modelling their Brown Kyrii in two fantastic outfits for us! :D Also added were pictures of a Shadow/Desert Korbat, Royal Cybunny, & Fire/Christmas Grundo!
[8/4]: Looking for a Royal Boy Hissi to model for us. If you've got one, please hit me up!
[8/3]: Newly listed at Compendium! Also finally fixed the broken links, haha. :p
How We Make Things Work
To start, please don't ask us to enlarge some random image you found around the internet. We're able to make Neopet, pet images larger because Neopets actually makes them smaller (via code) when they put them on pet lookups. In other words, it's something we can easily reverse without distorting the image.
We enlarge the images on Towai, not on Neopets because Neopets code filters don't allow for it. So please, don't ask how to do it on Neopets.
All images are automatically enlarged to a size of 1000x1000px. For some, like baby pets, they actually won't get larger than about 500x500. Other pets may actually be larger than 1000x1000px. Only under special circumstances will we enlarge a pet beyond 1000x1000px.
Looking for an Image?
If you're looking for an image of a specific pet or even with a specific customization, neomail
me with the information and I'll add you to the list. You will be notified just as soon as your image is ready. Please keep in mind:
1) If you do not own the pet that you're trying to get a picture of, it will need to be found. This may take some time.
2) If a pet color has just been released, chances are we won't be able to find it for a while.
3) I cannot take pictures of pets wearing colors that don't exist/haven't been made for them yet. Need I say more.
Please be sure you tell me if you want a picture of a sad or sick pet. My default is happy. Also inform me if you have any gender preference.
If you own a pet on the request list and don't mind us taking a picture of it, please see the section below.
Current Waiting List:
Model Your Pet for Us?
Picturesque is constantly looking for help in expanding its selection of images. If you have a pet that you'd like to model for us, please neomail
me with the details.
We're looking for any missing pet colors or any really awesome pet customizations, including cross-painted pets. That doesn't mean we want images of your pet dressed in every random piece of cloth you can find in your closet. However, if your pet is dressed in a matching suit and top hat, we'd love to have it. If you're not sure, don't be afraid to ask.
Also, we only ask that you temporarily remove any extra trinkets (Ie. thought bubbles, fairy dolls, etc) or background from the pic when we take its picture. We only want a picture of your pet and it's much easier when there's less clutter. Feel free to wait until I'm able to take a picture before you remove anything.
I automatically credit anyone who allows us to take a picture of their pet in our updates. If that makes you uncomfortable, please tell me.
I also ask that you please take a look at our requested images. If you have something we're looking for, please speak up, otherwise I have to hunt around Neopia for the pet.
