Kau Day Roundup
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on June 20, 2022, 3:31 pm NST

Kau Day is incoming, and to celebrate a new colour is available:


Burlap

This fluffy design was inspired by (fittingly-named) user cowsprite!

This year's Kau outfit is inspired by Morguss (who is a Moehog... but it still works!)

I like it! I think it might have been better with “pokier straw” if that makes any sense… but a relief to see no bright teal accents at least.

This Burlap Kau design was made by the user cowsprite (see /~Huntingtun petpage)

I am anxiously awaiting the outfit. They don't do very well for Kaus most years.

@ilovedachshunds Thanks, I added a link! 🐮

OMG YES!!! SO ADORABLE!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I was hoping that Cowsprite's design would be picked!!!
galifan, June 20, 2022 4:47 PM NST
That is adorable! TNT are lucky to have such talented and kind fan artists!
kyrette, June 20, 2022 5:21 PM NST
Oh my goodness, it's adorable.
xantanreborn, June 20, 2022 5:35 PM NST
It's a REALLY good looking burlap...this and the recent Yurble are my faves of the color!
chaosshadow, June 20, 2022 5:47 PM NST
I'm not generally a fan of burlap as a color but this is adorable.
contessa, June 20, 2022 5:48 PM NST
I agree with _rodeo_ that I would have used less fluffy mane and tail and would have gone with more of a straw look.

However, since reading that this was designed by an actual Neopets user AND that TNT gave them credit for doing so, I am fine with it just as it is!

I like it... I want a real one, preferably the size of my cat, to decorate my bed.
sprite_83_4, June 20, 2022 7:34 PM NST
wow what a cutie!! amazing job to the artist~
nobody, June 20, 2022 8:30 PM NST
I'm so tempted to make Moocher burlap.
inkpot, June 20, 2022 8:44 PM NST
loooove love love this design by cowsprite.
i also loved that they consciously took user criticism to their design to change and better it along the way.

ADORABLE.

Oh finally a good Burlap again! Was getting super tired of the hideous ones with green and purple highlights. Of course it was a community-created one too.
apophis324, June 21, 2022 1:04 AM NST
Why is Burlap such a popular colour? > -< I really don't get why people would want these horrifying creatures anywhere near their adorable Mutants and Darigan pets!

That Morguss outfit looks pretty decent. Too bad that Skarl pincushion is a Kau exclusive..
katina_choovanski, June 21, 2022 2:03 AM NST
I love the Burlap Kau!!! So cute and nicely done.
bacon, June 21, 2022 8:25 AM NST
I loved Neopets when I was younger, and was here a LOT. As you can see, I still come back to check this place out, and Neopets.

Are these users getting paid for their designs? Or getting any compensation?
roshchodesh, June 21, 2022 9:22 AM NST
A penny saved is a penny not earned by an artist and instead kerplunked into Jumpstart's coffers
elizabethloreleirose, June 21, 2022 10:38 AM NST
This is absolutely adorable! This Kau was well done!
dave - JN Staff, June 21, 2022 1:19 PM NST
@bacon: They typically get the associated paint brush as an award, or in Burlap's case, they get a Neopet morphed into their creation.

There's no financial compensation. However, these users also aren't actually creating the final artwork that appears above. A Neopets artist still needs to take the user's artwork and redraw it to fit into the customisation layering system.

Tbh, it's kind of like an ongoing round of the Random Contest where at this point artistic users are creating designs and advocating for them to become real colour combos.
nobody, June 21, 2022 6:46 PM NST
Neopians know what neopians want, too.
We end up with pets we'd actually enjoy.
roo_, June 21, 2022 7:38 PM NST
Well, Morguss is a Moehog though.
galifan, June 22, 2022 9:27 PM NST
Either one of Morguss' spells went wrong, or TNT can't tell warthog from cow IRL. I vote for the latter.
roshchodesh, June 25, 2022 5:42 AM NST
So why do they keep creating all these burlaps of late,, when there is no painbrusht and no fountain quest for it, and the chance of getting burlap and species you want with a zapis close to impossible?
