Spirit Artwork #24

Hello, friends. I apologize for the long absence; some stupid germs got to me and I had some major tests going on to boot. I may still be a little inactive, but once summer rolls around I'll be posting more.
What a calming view!
Can you guess where I took this screenshot?
Ahh, how fast spring has passed us by! Now, jammers are bringing out their long since hidden summer items and buying new summer dens. Speaking of which, your buddy has just invited you to a beach party at their new, expensive den. You happily agree to go. 
When you arrive, however, you find that the water is still uncomfortably cold, and the fruit from which the fruit punch was made is still sour. Taking a seat on the blindingly white, plastic flight of stairs, you brood over how jammers tend to try to force seasons into changing before they're ready. As you gaze out onto the small body of shimmering, turquoise water, you notice a glass bottle. Huh. Would you look at that? There seem to be some pieces of paper inside!

A radical piece of art by SuperMarshMellowz. I love how you've included every piece of her outfit. The dark background helps for the character and the text to stand out.

Some lovely fanart of Snowyclaw by Tailsthefox81011! The style in which this is drawn is rather interesting. And I just have to point out that the greenish glow reminds me of those weird blackboards at the doctor's or dentist's office where if you touch them they turn green. Does anyone know what I'm talking about??? xD

A rather interesting type of drawing, depicting a badger, sent in by Dolphinrider8910. The way you drew the character in a square reminds me of AJ's blocky style. It's very unique and recognizable.

A few lovely pieces of brightly-coloured, spring-themed pieces of art sent in by Emily Rose Pika/LightningBluetooth (sorry if I'm getting your username wrong... I wasn't sure what to credit you as.) I love the way the red on the Scarlet Tanager contrasts well with the green background, making it "pop." And that phantom is so adorable! Its limp tentacles and angered eye reflect its annoyance.

To conclude this post, we have some awesome pieces sent in by lucykate651! The first piece is all-around cute, drawn in a chibi style. I love the how the water grows darker as we near the bottom in the second picture: this adds to an atmosphere of foreboding. And finally, we have an animated gif. I love how you've animated the head and tail.


If you'd like to see some of my own artwork, check out my deviantART or my Youtube. If you'd like your art to be featured, please send it to spiritjammer@gmail.com!

    By the way here’s a wyvern. It will bake cookies for you, and it will do your laundry and it will clean you’re house. It will give you skittles every day, and it will rake your yard and it will eat the annoying bugs in your house.

    I like the eyes.

  36. PinkiePromise10May 9, 2015 at 5:35 PM

    (in my opinion) It wouldn’t be wrong for people to feel nice and give them a gift on their birthday, but it would be wrong for the person to become greedy and selfish because it’s their birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Okay, never mind, I traded it, and they sent me a pink Worn to make up. XD It probably wasn't fair, but whatever :P

    I’ve lost interest in it’s players. -.- The community is extremely immature.

    Yeah, they do, and balloons and boxes and things.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh. Cool. I never really played because it's like getting dumped into another 'Animal Jam.'

    ReplyDelete
  47. PinkiePromise10May 9, 2015 at 5:40 PM

    The problem is, there is no moderation (or at least GOOD moderation) in the speech, so people will say whatever they want to. It gets bad.

    ReplyDelete
  48. PinkiePromise10May 9, 2015 at 5:40 PM

    Welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  49. AJS recently set up a moderating thing, so all comments are moderated before being shown to the public. Unless you're whitelisted, your comments have to be reviewed by someone before they're posted. It all really slows down commenting, so a few people left because of that.

    ReplyDelete
  50. PinkiePromise10May 9, 2015 at 5:41 PM

    Few comments?

    ReplyDelete
  51. And people will ALWAYS find a way to say stuff. Can't say this word? Replace it with this word! Add numbers! Change the spelling! Make something that sounds like it! Add dashes and dots!

    ReplyDelete
  52. PinkiePromise10May 9, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Any art is good enough to be in Shadow’s posts. ^.^
    (unless it’s inappropriate).
    I wish I could send in art, but I don’t have an email.

  53. PinkiePromise10May 9, 2015 at 5:43 PM

    Sigh. With very limited rules, (or no rules at all), anarchy reigns. ;(

    -Pink rhino helmet (Beta)
    - Rhino helmet (Beta) (Purple-ish grey)

    That's a OVERRTTRADEE A silver spike is probably ONLY worth a bad worn.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I think the screen shot is from the new den in the diamond shop? I think it was the beach house one?
    These all look amazing :D

    I like the lineless one by SuperMarshMellowz! To me that is a very cute style ^^


    The one by Tailsthefox81011 is unique to me because of that glow, and yes Shadow I know what you mean .O.



    The badger has a very interesting cube style :D The stars around it make it look fabulous!


    The phantom with the bunny ears looks so annoyed but so cute at the same time :D I would squish those cheeks, if only it wasn't so dangerous to get near .O.
    The bird looks very nice :D I agree with Shadow! The red looks nice with the green :D Complementary colors do complement very well :D


    As always, Shadow you do a fantastic job describing art and an awesome intro :D I forgot to mention in the last Spirit Artwork. I'd like to draw your ladybug C: If you don't mind ^^

  78. no. im a girl and i dont have eyelashes on my animal,
    i sometimes use hearts but i dont wear purple, SOMETIMES pink.

  79. Yes, that's a very good trade for one. Not a rare one, but a diamond shop long one. You can't get them on the diamond shop anymore though.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Uh... Brick walls a rare viking helmet? I can change or add if you want

    ReplyDelete
  81. That was an over trade... Silver spiked collars are worth a few rare item Mondays but not that much

    ReplyDelete
  91. HEY GUYS! Okay, well! Great post and the beginning suits since it's only May, gargh
    FIRST piece of artwork - SuperMarshMellowz - I adore the look as if a child has painted it, like Snowyclaw the wolf is a best friend of theirs and they have sent some artwork to commemorate her! Okay, and the stars are to DIE FOR!
    Tailsthefox81011 - fantastic! The greenish glow makes the image pop into mind of a shadow, but perhaps in the jungle or some mossy area? As if Snowyclaw is wild and lives upon some unknown island. It's truly beautiful and I adore the way it's so... DIFFERENT! It makes you think!
    Dolphinrider8910 - cute! The blocky style does remind me of AJ and especially the grey wolf's paws. It's very sweet how it's such a different image, do you hope for badgers to come to Jamaa one day? I think so.
    Emily Rose Pika / Lightning Bluetooth, WOW! The Tanager is gorgeous and the Phantom is hilarious! I love how it looks limp and slightly frustrated, like the owl on The Owl & Co on channel Boomerang. Does anybody else watch the new series?
    AND FINALLY I was waiting for some art from you, lucykate651. You never disappoint! You are my fave artist <3 I especially love the cuteness crossed with chibi anime and EMOTIONS and the simplicity of cub's bliss. The gif is wonderfully created
    CONGRATULATIONS IF YOUR ARTWORK WAS FEATURED!!!! Otherwise, keep trying!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I only have a Rare one, sorry, and also it's about AJ and on the topic so I doubt it's spamming! x

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hmm, it's not weird that there is no pink or purple or hearts since that is a stereotype. Myth can be a girl's name also, but the eyes may confuse people.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I am actually not a Warriors fan to be honest ^^' I used to read the books but after the 1st series I kinda quit. Mainly because the story was a bit... Boring? I don't know... I couldn't get into it that much.
    The first one is my fursona Gazini. He is a wolf.
    The second one is Lynol, he's part otter and part lynx.
    The third one is a Warrior OC. I did an art trade with a friend. Well in this case it's an animation trade. ^^
    I have made fan art in the past, but my friends wanted/asked me to do them.
    Looks like the gathering in that picture C:
