Example of an alteration

The Habbox Alteration Archive was a website page/gallery featured on the Habbox.com version 6 site. It was originally being developed by lawrawrrr and Drew as part of a Habbox Graphics project during the start of 2014 and became publicly viewable on the 18th April the same year. The aim of the Alteration Archive was to highlight some of the most prestigious pixel artists that have been connected to Habbox in some way by publicly displaying some of their best works on the website. Mini biographies were also placed above each artist's drawings in order to describe their connection to Habbox.

Fourteen artists had profiles on the archive, with the last addition being the HabboxForum user Zealoux. All users who submitted/who were featured in the archive (as submissions could be made by other users providing evidence was displayed) received a Forum Award on HabboxForum to display on their User Profile, as well as HabboxForum Tokens or Habbox VIP for outstanding submissions. There was a minimum requirement of 9 individual pieces of art as image submissions.

On Version 8 of the Habbox site, the Alteration Archive has been changed to a Pixel Art Showcase, retaining most of the previous works while also adding some newer Habbox artists.
