You quickly scan the busy streets, searching for a decent place to shop, and many eye-catching signs leap into your vision. A mass of blurred grey quickly zooms by, before flashing neon replaces it. You stop in your tracks. A mass of grey…? You squint and try to decipher the illegible, broken cursive above the shop front. Curiosity overcomes your previous want to shop, and you hurry toward the eccentric building hosting the sign.

Now closer, you can see that the letters spell Grenade. Your curiosity sparks brighter; you quickly take in the slightly tinted windows, modern furnishing, and sophisticated aura. What is a shop like this doing on such a busy hubbub of a street?, you wonder to yourself. A unique piece of art catches your eye through the thick glass, and you decide to go in.



Bells tinkle cheerfully as you walk through the door.



Welcome

guest, welcome to Grenade, an art trade/request site run by Summer, Ari, and Zaeyn. Here at Grenade, we provide quality service to all of our customers. You are welcome to browse but remember, art theft will not be tolerated under any circumstance.


Hi, I'm Arieyela, and I'll be your attendant today. I'm going to go over the rules, explain the application process, and assist you during your visit at Grenade. Be sure to drop by the FAQ for your unanswered questions. If you still have some questions, don't hesitate to ask.

October 15, 2011
Due to school and other outside activities, I'll have to take a hiatus from Grenade. I know this was coming, but it makes me sad to announce it. I will be back though! Nothing can keep me away from Neopets (:

Rules«

1. Do not remove credit, as Summer works very hard on her art. If I, or any other employee, see that you've taken the credit off, we will notify Summer, who will kindly ask you to re-credit. If you still don't credit, stealing is a punishable crime. Please report any art theft to Summer.
2. Completely follow all processes, or Summer may not be able to complete the request/art trade.
3. Try to be as specific as possible to ensure full satisfaction. Colour can be changed, but position/style cannot.
4. I love snacking on pickles c;
5. Link backs are extremely appreciated. (That means you should do it!)
6. Summer will do app art, petpage art, any neo-related art, but if you have any questions, don't be scared to ask her!
7. Please neomail ellesmarie, and only ellesmarie. Neomails sent to Summer's sides regarding Grenade will be ignored.
8. Your pet must have some sort of customization/reference sheet.

  

Request

Please send in one neomail per form. If you have multiple applications, send in multiple neomails. Label each trade/request accordingly. (eg: Art Request 1, Art Request 2). The maximum amount of applications you may send in for art trades is 3 per month. The maximum amount of forms you may send in for art requests is 2 per month. Allow up to one week to receive your art if a) there are many requests, b) your pet's customization is complicated, or c) real life emergencies (may take longer in this case). I hope you all understand. Summer will do her best to complete your requests in satisfactory time. All neomails will be responded to (unless requests are closed). If you do not receive a reply, kindly resend your form to Summer after 3 days. Thank you!

F.A.Q.

Hello, Summer here. I'll be answering your questions today.

Which programs do you use for your art?
I start off by drawing on regular paper before scanning and digitally editing on GIMP.

Will you draw art for me?
Of course! If requests are open, feel free to send me a form for art.

Do you prefer anthro or quad?
As you can see, my anthro and quad don't really look much different. My anthros are extremely fat chibis with extremely animalistic features, while my quads look like chibi pets.

Will you do application art for me?
Sure. Just send in a request, like usual, but please mention that it is app art somewhere in your form. Goodluck with your application!

Can't find the answer to your question?
Don't worry, just drop me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
