Baby steps back into art. These are just some edits on some of the pets I feel like they kinda goofed on in the conversion. I like customization its fun as heck I just wish they were a bit better on some of the conversion drawings. Lookin at you Ixi, lutari, Wocky.
the only thing that got better after conversion was the usuls and draiks
Here’s a list for anyone who wants a quick reference
Man I miss the pre-conversion art
But let’s not forget the old old art
idk personally I think about half the pets were improved with the conversion. Sure there were a few that got worse and some lateral moves, and obviously the more dynamic colours were inhibited, but I’m still in the small minority of pro-conversion people.
I honestly feel that the majority of pets were improved with conversion. Are they perfect? No. Nothing is because what makes things ‘perfect’ are a matter of personal taste. For example, the changes that were made are minor cosmetic ones in my eyes with the exception of a handful of colours like Faerie, Mutant, and plushie and even then it wasn’t true of every pet available in those colours.
Now, however, all the pets have a consistent art style when it comes to basic things like the colouring style and line width while wearables allow for a much wider range of personality and creativity to be expressed by users. Customization also made colours that didn’t deviate from the basic pose more rise in worth and value. A good example would be the White Paint Brush, which when conversion took place was about 500K. It’s now worth millions because of it’s use as a basecoat for customizers. As a whole the art, versatility and character displayed by post-customization pets is far better then those of pre-customization.
As the saying goes, you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig and the same goes for old art. There were a handful of pets that were better but the bulk of them are just so much better off now.
