I JUST found this site and KNEW that I had to share it with y'all! It's so simple and charming and the art is fantastic!

vvv CLICKY! vvv


Honestly I'm tempted to put that badge on my own site.

P.S. I'm looking at the Geocities.ws site... does anyone know about this? This is my first time hearing about it. The pricing looks good (to me: someone who doesn't actually know much about web hosting) but I'm not sure if it's a "too good to be true" type of deal or not.

Oh my god!! This is such a nice surprise to find, I saw this site as a kid and wanted to draw like this so bad... I can't believe some of these sites are still online, it's such a blessing.

According to this blog post from 2020, it appears to be too good to be true. I appreciate the Geocities archive at least (even if my site wasn't archived :drat: lol).

Holy crap, this girl's one hell of an artist! I hope that her talent is still thriving elsewhere, wherever she is now. Also, it always blows me away whenever I find art of this quality from the early 2000's. It's incredible to think about getting this level of beautiful fanwork when the internet was still in its infancy.

Right?? Unfortunately I wasn't born early enough to really explore these types of sites in their heyday, but I do love coming across them nowadays and going down little rabbit holes of links.

Ahh, unfortunate. Hopefully it's archived somewhere! I can only assume you've already checked the wayback machine, yeah?

Right though!? Like there are some works you could kind of tell are from the early 2000's just by the style or certain techniques used. But some pieces I'll see completely blow me away because they look so modern and ahead of the time!

That is so cool! I used to have a site for all my pets on Geocities aswell. This makes me really miss Neopets (how it was back then) I remember creating my account in the late '90s and obsessively playing it everyday... I had a bunch of art contest and game contest awards I'd won and a bunch of rare transmogs and petpets...

My art which won me the contest trophy is still up though which is cool!


And this is my profile which still seems to be up


I've not been able to sign into the account since 2009 though because my account got hijacked and the password was changed and the Neopets mods were never able to help me recover the account despite me proving it was mine. That was also very sad.

But I have lot's of happy memories of playing the games and loving all the environments and characters!
