Spirit Artwork #21

But you don't know. You linger on the split between the clear definitions of yes and no, wishing you could be neither... wishing you could be the epitome of neutrality. But it is impossible to be in perfect equilibrium here. That would beat the system, and no, that wouldn't do. The second you shift more weight onto one side, either the checkmark or the giant X light up, affirming an answer you never gave. Time runs painfully short. You must make a decision. But you don't know. Voices... dreadful, high-pitched, mocking voices, begin to count your last seconds. Beads of sweat form on your forehead and the palms of your paws. You look around; the amount of  animals on each side is evenly split. It's almost classic: two warring sides. And you have to pick. But you can't. You don't know. With a final sigh, you leave. You decide to do some research, to be better prepared, but, among your books, you discover some of your old favorites. Picture books...

A collection of artwork sent in by Moshi0806! I especially like the texture of fur in the last two pieces.

Lovely artwork depicting a deer by Muffinjelly! Interesting choice of color for the lines: using a light color rather than a dark color. It helps the darker parts of the deer, such as the muzzle, stand out.

Cute artwork by cutty12342! I like the lighting: it reflects a clear choice of light source. The color choice of the eyes, a light lavender, makes them pleasant to look at.

Finally, here we have artwork sent in by Lucykate651! The color choices on your cat are splendid; I love how the neon blue looks against the black fur. As for the second piece, it has a great atmosphere! So many details to look at, as well! It keeps the viewer occupied.

Lucykate651 has also included a speedpaint for us to view!

  8. Hey jammers, I would just like to say that I have made a clan!! It is called the Stormclan, and if you would like to join, please send me a JAG saying, Members: "Storm clan", and Non members: "I really like your den!" with the STAR stamp so I know you're talking about the clan. There are 5 members including me so far, and I would really like to get more! We need kits, queens, medicine cat, apprentices, warriors, and mentor warriors. So far, we have a leader (me), a deputy, two warriors, and an apprentice. Well, I kind of pick your name and rank, but that should not matter. What matters is that you should be loyal to the clan! Hope you join! ~5yoyo5~ p.s. My username is 5yoyo5 for people who usually ask...

  12. I wonder who are the ones saying, "3... 2.... 1..." Phantoms? A couple of mischievous foxes/wolves/big cats/etc? I dunno...

  14. Hello everyone!
    AMAZING art today!
    My personal favourite was probably the deer because of the talented way the author has portrayed sunlight falling on fur. However, they are all incredible and obviously it required a lot of technique, talent and dedication to achieve these amazing looks! The colour choices on the Pi piece are splendiferous ^.^ And the way the fur has been done on Moshi0806's pieces? wow. just wow. cutty12342's cute picture captured the playful spirit of the animal just perfectly. Congrats artists!


    And Shadow- your style of writing is brilliant. Ever thought about writing some narratives and publishing them online? :)


    Byeeeee

    ReplyDelete
  15. Whoa... what if it IS phantoms?!!? You know, the x that stands for false does look familiarly purple... :o

    ReplyDelete
  16. SPLENDIFEROUS
    I love that.... word... thing... idk if it even is a word... xD


    As for your question... eehh idk I'm more of an art person :p

    ReplyDelete
  17. Congrats anyhow, second is pretty good when it comes to these comments! c:

    ReplyDelete
  18. hehe ^-^ its your choice. All I'm saying is that you are quite a talented writer as well as an author!

    ReplyDelete
  19. All of today's art was AMAZING! I particularly liked the speedpaint. It amazes me how people can draw so good AND so quickly! Also, my favourite song was at the start. :)

  20. hi anyone here

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi everyone! I have a question to discuss but its not directly related to this post so if the author wants me to delete it i can. My AJ user is different to my AJS user and I want to change one of them so they are the same- do I change my AJS username to starock24 or my AJ username to BlueMoon?
    Thank you Jammers! ^-^

  35. Once, when I was logged on, it was a house den, non-member, someone was at my den, so I went to see who. I cleared my den when I didn't find anyone. Then, a animal looking phantom apeared ith no name tag. Then, it said I was gone for too long. I clicked OK and it logged me out. I logged back on, and everything that happened on that session was undone.

  36. Oooooooh I never knew we could submit ART!!!! Btw who is with me that drawing on the computer is THE WORST????

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wait should I trade back? I have a feeling it wasn't fair.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like drawing digitally, it allows me to use any color or art style I want without spending tons of money on quality supplies or enough colors of a certain marker ;-;

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey guys, it's me! Ready for my daily comment - I adore how Shadow presents these - the story was amazingly suited to the new theme of the game! I have tried standing in the middle too - I think we all have!


    The first 4 are alright, I guess! But there's more to come! A build-up to the breathtaking art that makes your head dizzy and your heart pound in your chest! Fabulous build-up art, I am going to call it "staircase" art, Moshi0806!


    Muffinjelly - I'm - just - honoured - to - SEE - this - drawing. The texture, the tiniest attention to detail and the furry goldenness of everything that makes it like a ray of sunshine you just want to grasp in your arms and breathe out contentedly.


    cutty12342 has created an interesting, sort of childish-looking piece - but actually in a positive, beneficial way to the picture! It gives it the cutesy air of the position which it wouldn't be complete without! It just makes it all so playful and innocent, as if it's saying, "Do you wanna play fetch?"


    And upvote this comment if you haven't already, if lucykate651 never fails to astound you every time. The first image has a sophisticated air of comedy about it, as if it's a light-hearted joke that makes you laugh momentarily, before realising the immense detail and intensity of the masterpiece. The one below is so dark that the dark pieces of clothing actually seem BRIGHT compared to it. It gives the slight hint of light but it's fading out as if the darkness is reaching in its icy-hearted fingers to grasp it, and all around, the outlines of other wolves, ALREADY grasped by darkness, and they watch as another one of them is about to be taken. Your heart is in your mouth....

  43. I hate hate HATE drawing on the computer! It's so difficult! But drawing free-handed is exceptional! I would rather scan my drawings onto the computer and then attach them into an email. xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. I didn't know everyone was being this way! I wouldn't reflect on it if I were you. It can't be that bad if Arthop and I don't know about it. They're still (one of) my favourites and a whole boatload of people are thinking, "Since when were Arctic Wolves hated? I thought everyone loved them! All the movie-stars have them!" Just remember - Julian2 and RainbowTheCat have one, and so do you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You're IN BED typing? HOW ARE YOU AWAKE AT 6:50 A.M.!?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would change your AJ username to Bluemoon since you are most famed on AJS rather than AJ, so more people will recognise you on AJ from now on. For example, lots of people might think your AJ username is actually Bluemoon and won't be able to contact you.


    THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS: Bluemoon is a very popular and mystique name so someone might already have it!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I always associate it with Phantoms.


    1) The dried-up lakes, wells and plants during Return of the Phantoms
    2) The mysterious cracked stone around the edge is tinged like Phantoms are
    3) It's purple and black
    4) The underwater items
    5) EVERY PHANTOM ITEM EVER MADE

    ReplyDelete
  48. Excuse me? Fman122 has NOT GONE. He has sent me 5 Jamagrams in the past, each of which contained gifts, each of which were opened and contained DIAMONDS.

    ReplyDelete
  49. 'Grats 5yoyo5! You deserved dat!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yes, and no I don't hate them im saying that there is just a lot of hate on them (like they would have a wolves only party but not let arctic wolves go :I ) that's what im talking about

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ok :3 did u see her scam any one? or is it just an attempt? (im still gonna report her though)

    ReplyDelete
  53. People will walk up to me and ask "DO u like me?" i'll be all like "idk you.."
    then they would yell " LOVE ME!" im like: O_O

    ReplyDelete
  54. If the other person likes the trade, and u like the trade, it's fine :D If the person wants to trade back, u should trade back.

    ReplyDelete
  55. yes, i'm pretty sure she scammed someone, right after i got locked out. she HAD NO LONG SPIKE COLLAR! that's proof.

    ReplyDelete

  100. What do you mean? That is a wrong description of Club Penguin.


    You have to play games for coins in Club Penguin. Its easy - I have nearly a million (864,392 to be exact) since I joined the game in 2011.


    No, it is not hard to earn more coins. Simply walk your puffle (even the nm ones) and they will find coins for you. Up to 200 coins can be found.


    You don't buy coins, unlike AJ. When you run out simply go play a game :|

    ReplyDelete
  101. Fantastic art, everyone! :o

  102. Can I has some... *giant kawaii sad eyes*

  106. everyone says bring back the beta days... Animal Jam please.. let all the people get what they want. they deserve the beta days for being a good jammer.
    please reply.

    ReplyDelete
  107. im glad it did :3

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hooray! I've always loved Aviator Hats, now I have one in every color!

    ReplyDelete
  109. I think the beta days should come back. It was more fair back then, since nothing was really as rare as it is today. There were not as many scammers and hackers, and i've heard it was good times. Crystal Sands was absolutely beautiful. No slides or anything.
    Plus, the non member den. 3 stories of pure glory! :D

    ReplyDelete
  110. Great job to everyone! I really love Muffinjelly's!
    ITS SO unique!

    ReplyDelete
  111. the dens were epic. plz bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!1 everything was beutiful. no such thing as rares. no scamming. beutiful lands!

    ReplyDelete
  112. JUST EVERYONE WANTS IT BACK! GIVE EVERYONE THEIR WISH!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Loki is a good person to side with even if he later on most likely will betray u ( not this user im talkin bout the character Loki ) id like to be ur friend ^u^

    ReplyDelete
  114. Sorry if I'm being rude, but I don't think the Beta Days will ever come back. They may for a party or if Animal Jam redoes the game, but there is no point to it. Animal Jam is out of testing, and has been for years.

    A game that is technically AJ that is still in Beta is Play Wild, so you can try that.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'll submit some ugly arts :c

  116. xP okie (though there is a total logic to everything Loki does, if u want, I can explain everything)

  118. You can play it on Bluestacks

    ReplyDelete
  119. I am happy to be your friend!

    ReplyDelete
  120. It does! Umm.... lassos!

    ReplyDelete
  121. He's BACK?! I didn't think he left! Since I joined he's been bombarding me with empty Jamagrams with Diamonds in the gifts! But the username is blanked out with a white marker. They say THANKS FOR PLAYING WITH ME! BUT IT'S NOT IN CAPITALS LIKE A MEMBER TYPED IT. IT'S IN LOWER-CASE LIKE IT WAS ALREADY ON THE SELECTIONS. Plus, he uses old-fashioned styles of JAGs which you can't even use anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  122. People always say popular animals are bad. But there's no reason to say that, is there?! Just because something's popular doesn't mean it's overrated. They could kindly share their opinion, or if they can't do that, keep it to themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  123. What da heck.... Thats scary, how did you open them without getting the virus? Ermergerd. ('⊙ _ ⊙)

    ReplyDelete
  124. Bluestacks isn't a computer type, its something that allows you to play Android games on the computer ^^

Remember jammers, no swearing or bullying on the blog! You can leave your opinion on matters, but be sure to be polite and respect others'. Happy jamming! ~Snowyclaw
