    Felt like this should be shared here on VPL.

    Re-vamps drawn by one of the two newest artists on Mara, screen shot of them on her blog.(Taken since apparently the images were removed and I could still see them, sent to people who didn't and asked to)

    Current Rusty

    Does anyone else think this was a bad move on Ian's part? Do you think this is an improvement over the current Rusty? What are your thoughts?

    He should have accepted it. The revamp is so much better than the original.​

    Some users want to get a petition started on the site to demand the change. Here's what the artist said on a recent comment on her blog...

    Oh God a petition would make him mad. xD
    Ian just says any revamps aren't necessary no matter if anyone likes them or not.
    It's alright though. C:


    Honestly Ian...Listen to the people for once.

    I'm convinced Marapets is out to have the worst art of any petsite. Theirs have set their standard so low the the users cant accept good art.

    @Joy - I think she's being paid to do site art but I'm not entirely sure.

    @Corsair - Oh you have no idea...People raged over the Dark Fairy pets and adored the new Anime pets(not the new new ones, the ones that came out BEFORE he got better ones).

    Ah well that's probably the issue; he doesn't want to pay.​

    RIP

    Were good art comes to die


    @Sirkowskii The Dark Fairy pets were a improvement. I think your friend is to good of a artist for the site. I'd hate to see her get hate.

    sounds like Ian owner of Marapets just wants TO MAKE MONEY and not Spend any to give anything back to the players of the site. very selfish and two year oldish! if players hate the art leave the site lots of pet site out there to play now :D

    edit: just thought of some thing, maybe he drew the pets so he does not want to change or have better then his art work on the site?

    @Corsair - She is too good for the site and your picture made me laugh xD. I think she took on the job because so many people wanted her too and they wanted to see her art make it on Mara. She's actually had to dumb down her style to make Ian happy.

    @Liz - People do leave just oldies won't. I stay on for my friends to talk to them. It's really all I do now xD.

    The thing is though, while that art is amazing, it changes the Rusty entirely. The proposed revamp doesn't resemble a basset hound at all (which Rusty appears to be to me).

    Perhaps try asking Ian to add that as a new pet...?

    really?!? odd. tell the artist to sell her work to someone that will appreciate it and it will go to some one that likes great art and newbie like art (people that are still learning). :p

    I don't think this job is going to work out for her. She clearly is getting flack just for doing here job.



    She should sell here they would be better on a petsite then waste away.

    Just got a message back from her. I asked her if Ian was paying. Here's the response...

    I hope, Ian hasn't told me how much though. D:

    ...Well...That answers possibly as to why he said no the the re-vamp.

    It's a nice redraw, but its a shame Ian isn't going to use it.
    I agree with @Quetzal it should be made a new pet or something. It just doesn't look so like the rusty.


    She probably is in a trial mode or something because if she was a full time or part time artist, she would have disclosed her payment to you.[in my opinion though]
