The World of Jamaa Tag and AJ Artist Tag!

Helloooooo everyone! :D

Sorry I haven't posted in a week! I've been caught up in doing school and enjoying the Christmas bustle. I've also been writing and drawing a lot recently so that's been fun. ^.^ (Heh, I haven't written anymore JH in FOREVER! I know you're all waiting patiently and I feel awful making you wait forever after that cliff hanger. I apologize!!)

But today I am finally posting!

In today's post, I will doing two tags made by friends of mine! Let's start off with...

The World of Jamaa Tag created by Ja983!!

1. Do you like the new or older version of the Zios mask?
The new one is alright, it's growing on me slowly. But I really loved the older one. It fit the surroundings more. It even suits the name of the land more! The Lost Temple of Zios sounds like ruins and stuff, not big shiny golden waffles. XD

2. What is your favorite seasonally adventure in Jamaa?
Ohhh boy. I really enjoy Jamaaliday Rescue and Lucky Clovers! Ohhh and the Spring Festival and Bitter Sweets and ALL OF THEM. XD

Okay, but my FAVORITE is Jamaaliday Rescue. ^.^


source
3. Of all the lands in Jamaa (oceans included), which one has your favorite music?
*pauses Splatoon music and logs onto AJ*
*goes to all the lands in Jamaa*
Hmm, I really like the Appondale music!
*snickers at Kimbara Outback music* IT SOUNDS ALL TWANGY AND COUNTRY-ISH! Ahh, inside joke, sorry. XD
OOOO, I love Mt. Shiveer!
Sarapia Forest is pretty. :3
Coral Canyons is good, not my favorite though. :P
Lost Temple of Zios is quiet...
Crystal Sands is fun. XD
AHH CRYSTAL REEF, I LOVE IT. XD
Bahari Bay, you are a copycat. o,o
Can't really hear Deep Blue...
I have never noticed Kani Cover music!
AND JAMAA TOWNSHIP IS BEAUTIFUL CUZ ITS JAMAALIDAYS!!!!

Okay, wow, this is a long answer for a simple question. XD To sum it up, I love: Appondale, Mt. Shiveer, Crystal Reef/Bahari Bay, and Jamaa Township. ^.^

*plays Splatoon music again*

4. On a scale of 1-10, how creepy do you rate the music in Deep Blue?
*pauses Splatoon music again and goes to Deep Blue*
O.o Why do I hear wind?! And... shrieking-ish noises?
Also, that moment you turned your sound really loud to listen to Deep Blue music and your friends keep logging in and the little friend sound keeps coming. XD

Okay, so, it's pretty creepy so I'll say 8!

5. What's something weird you find on the Animal Jam world map?
When you move your mouse over Appondale, the mud puddle overlaps the cliffs nearby. XD


6. What is something in Jamaa's lands you never really notice?
*hunts around Jamaa*

Well, I knew this nest was here but I hardly ever remember it and it's always literally hidden unless your a flying animal!


7. What's one of the prettiest things in Jamaa?
Mt. Shiveer. I love it there! It's very peaceful and all the vibrant blues just makes me attracted to Mt. Shiveer. That, and the music!


Well, thank you so much, Ja, for tagging me! :D It was a lot of fun!!

And anyone can use this tag! Take it and RUN! XD

This post isn't over, oh no! I am still going to be doing...

Animal Jam Artist Tag created by Purplestarclub!!
1. What's your favorite AJ animal to draw?
Hmm, that is a tough one. I usually find bunnies being the easiest but foxes and arctic foxes aren't too bad! I haven't drawn AJ animals in a while and now I really want to... :3

2. Which animal (in your opinion) is the hardest to draw?
I'd say the hyenas but I have only tried drawing it a year ago. I'm sure now I could better now, though. OH, and the wolves. I find them incredibly hard because of their huge noses. They also look too weird... Just look at the horrible masterpiece I did for Swirl last year. XD

source
ARGH, LOOK AT THE AWFUL NOSE. Oh dear, and the eyeeeeesss are all wobbly. Swirl, if your got rid of this awful masterpiece, I wouldn't mind. XD

3. Which one of your AJ art pieces are you most proud of?
I have three masterpieces that I'm most proud of, I think. :P

 
I am proud of this piece because it turned out really good in my opinion, which is a nice feeling because I don't always love my art. One thing I don't like is that the eye is good in some people opinions and other people have told me it looks... off. But lemme tell ya, I probably made 10 versions of that eye. This was my best one so deal with ittttt! XD
 
 
This one I made earlier this week! It's from a video game called Among the Sleep and I watched a YouTuber named DanTDM play it. (Me and Swirl are both kinda got obsessed with making ATS art and things. XD It's so fun though! :D) If you can't tell, its a baby (I am not showing the head since the player of the game is playing as the baby so it could be a girl or boy!) and Teddy, a helpful little guy. One thing I like is how the torn part on Teddy's arm turned out. Oh yeah, and the eyes in the darkness. Heh. c:
 
 
This is also from Among the Sleep. This is a monster that follows the baby around and is very creepy. O.o But I'm really proud how the background turned out and the colors I picked for the whole masterpiece. :D
 
4. Do you like to draw digitally, traditionally, or on the AJ art studio?
My favorite of those three would have to be the AJ art studio! I know lots of people complain but I have really grown used to it. Whenever I go to an art program to draw, I'm confused with all those tools and there's literally no way to figure out what everything does!
 
Drawing traditionally is definitely fun as well. But I find myself more drawn (Ha, I'm hilarious xD) to drawing on the AJ art studio. :D
 
5. What's one tip you have for AJ artists?
Well, I don't know if this tip is just for AJ artists but try using new techniques! Finding new ways to draw certain things is extremely helpful! I'd suggest watching people draw on YouTube OR watch someone in real life, IF they are okay with that. XD I watch Koolest draw all the time and get tips from just observing. ;)
 
So! I challenge you artists to observe other artists! Or, try looking at art online or even art on book covers to see what other artists do.
 
Thanks for tagging me, Purple! I had fun thinking about the questions and answering them. ^.^
 
Anyone can use this tag!! :D
 
Welp, thanks for reading, merry Christmas, and...
 
Jam on!!
 
Comment call: Did you enjoy reading this post? :D
Update: I will be FINALLY changing the template to be CHRISTMASY!!! Took me forever to realize it's not fall anymore. o,o

      5. Oooo, I have never noticed that! :O
      6. AWWWW, a baby phantom. CX
      7. Underwater lands are beautiful. ;)

  2. OOOH
    TAGS
    MUST ANSWER THEM!!!!

    1. I like them bothhhh, XD! The old one fit the surroundings, like you said, but I also really like the shiny gold new one, because it kinda represents Zios still being out there, y'know?
    2. Oooh, that's tough! I love Lucky Clovers' prizes, but it takes FOREVER to finish!
    Hmmm...
    Y'know, I still have to go with Lucky Clovers- I love the music, and the scenery is really pretty as well!
    3. OH
    UMMMMMMM...
    Okay, I love Mt. Shiveer, Appondale, and Sarepia Forest...
    But if I had to pick one...
    *Goes to Mt. Shiveer and suddenly realizes how good the music is all over again*
    AHHH I CAN'T HELP IT!! I CHOOSE MT. SHIVEER TOO! XDD!
    4. 10! THAT MUSIC IS FREAKYYYYYYYYY!!! XD!
    5. Hmmmm, let me find something...
    OH MY GOODNESS
    I JUST FOUND SOMETHING I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE!
    IF YOU MOUSE OVER JAMAA TOWNSHIP, YOU CAN STILL SEE THE DOOR OF CLUB GEOZ UNDER THE DIAMOND SHOP BUILDING!!
    I'm so proud of myself for noticing that... XDD!
    6. Now that I look at it... MAN, HOW LONG MUST IT HAVE TAKEN TO MAKE ALL THIS ART!?
    I mean, seriously, the entire game must have taken YEARS AND YEARS to make! The lands are so amazingly detailed and everything- not to mention the animations and animals and pets and items and all that stuff!
    7. Ooooh, another tough one! I love almost everything about all the lands!
    But let's see...
    Y'know, I've always loved the view from the top of Coral Canyons' rock bridge! Man, imagine seeing that scenery in real life!

    OKAY
    SO
    I'm just gonna comment on your answers for the artist tag- I plan on featuring my own answers in a blog post soon anyway!

    1. Yeah, AJ bunnies are pretty fun to draw! :D
    2. LOST
    WHY WOULD I GET RID OF IT
    IT"S ACTUALLY REALLY GOODDDDDDD!!!
    And no, I'm not just saying that to be nice- I actually love it! I know you can do even better now, but it's still awesome to me!
    If I'm being honest, I always DO end up staring at that ONE TINY bit of green sticking out on the nose outline, XD! But it actually doesn't bother me much anymore!
    Don't underestimate your art skills, my friendddd! XDD!
    3. OKAY
    LET ME JUST SAY
    THAT DRAGON'S EYE:
    PERFECT!
    I stare at it every time I go to your den, thinking "HOW ON EARTH DID SHE MAKE IT LOOK SO REALISTIC!?" XDDD!
    And YESSS, I LOVE BOTH OF THOSE AMONG THE SLEEP ONES TOOOO!
    4. OM
    YES
    TOOLS ON OTHER ART PROGRAMS ARE SOOO HARD TO FIGURE OUT! XD!
    That's why I only draw digitally on AJ or Paint (which sounds kinda sad, but I make it work, XD).
    5. Haha, yeah- I like to develop my own style from someone else's (I don't copy- unless it's for practice- I just use some bits of the style and add my own parts to it) on the Internet! That's how I ended up learning to draw cats and dogs in a front-view pose, and I still use that style today! :D

    OKAY, BYEEEEEEEE LOST! Sorry if this turned out long, XD!

    1. FIRST OFF.
      THIS IS A HUGE COMMENT.
      MY WORD. XDDD

      OKAY, LET'S DO THIS. XD

      1. Oooooh, I like how you described that. :O I kinda wish they showed that Zios is alive in a different way. Like a note from him or something. Though I do like the downstairs under his statue. :o
      2. I actually love the hardness of it but other times, I GET SO FED UP CUZ I HAVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE. *yanks hair out in frustration* OWWWW. XD
      3. I KNOW, RIGHT?! MT. SHIVEER HAS THE BEST MUSIC. IT ALMOST SENDS SHIVERS DOWN MY SPINE WHEN I HEAR IT. XD
      4. Yes. o.o I never realized how creepy it was. XD It makes sense cuz deep deep underwater, creepy fish swim around so... XD
      5. WHAT, YOU CAN?!!!?!
      *logs onto AJ*
      OM, YES, I SEE SOMETHING MOVING. :OOOO Good find, Swirl!!! :O
      6. That is SO true. I know lots of us are like GIVE US A NEW LAND AJ. NOT NEW SPIKES. But lands take a LOT of time and THE DETAIL IS AMAZING ON THEM so they would have to work so hard on them. And spikes you can just use a normal spike base and add to them its easy and fun in their mind, I guess.
      7. OHHHH, YES, I AGREE. :O I love flying around that big open sky. ;)

      Oh yay!! :D Can't wait to see your answers for the tag. :O

      1. Yeah! :D Simple and fun!
      2. WHA
      LOOK AT IT
      IT'S ABSOLUTELY HORRID.
      That's sweet of you. ;)
      WAIT. THERE IS?! OH DEAR, THERE IS A BLOB STICKING OUT OF THE NOSE. *slaps forehead* IT LOOKS AWFUL. SWIRL, BURN IT. XD
      3. AWWWW, THANK YOUUUUUUU!!! THIS LEGIT MAKES MY DAY. <333
      4. YESSSSSS, SOMEONE WHO AGREES. I HATE ART PROGRAMS SOMETIMES. WHERE'S MY INSTRUCTIONS. *spins around in chair like DanTDM does when he's flustered* XD
      5. Yeah! I sometimes copy stuff but whenever I do, it turns out different so it isn't copying in my mind. I don't know, I might be a cheater at art but that's how I roll. XD

      THANKS FOR THE SUPER LONG COMMENT. SORRY IF MINE IS SUPER SHORT IN COMPARISON. XDDDD BYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

      Delete
    2. EEK
      IT IS!
      I DIDN'T KNOW IT WOULD TURN OUT THAT LONG!!!
      Y'know, maybe my New Year's Resolution should be to make shorter comments, XDD!
      And now I'm randomly thinking of those... you know those pictures where a dog or cat or something (usually an animal) did something bad, and someone puts a sign in front of them kinda "shaming" them?
      I'm imagining that, but with my main wolf, and a sign that says "I write super long comments on blogs and take up the entire comment section with them."
      XDDDDD!
      I, uh... don't know why I thought of that... but I did. XDD!

      I'M GOING TO SPLIT THIS COMMENT UP! MAYBE THAT'LL HELP! XDD!

      Delete
    3. OKAY
      PART TWO!
      XD!

      1. Yeah, same here! Hopefully all these adventures are leading up to actually seeing something ancient from Zios, or seeing Zios himself!
      And same, the... umm... *has to look at it on AJ*... Forgotten Archive (XD) is awesome!
      2. XDD, I KNOWWW! THERE'S ALWAYS THAT LAST ONE THAT TAKES LITERALLY AN HOUR TO FIND!
      3. IKR, IT'S SO AMAZIIINGGG!
      4. Yeah, XD! But honestly, it DOES sound like screeching trains in the background... O.O XD!
      5. Hehe, thanks! I'd never noticed that before, but then again, Alpha Headquarters hasn't really been there that long, XD!
      6. Yeah, exactly! I do love new lands, but AJHQ has gotta take their time to make it look the best!
      And true- I guess that's another reason AJHQ loves spikes so much, XDD!
      7. Ikr?! It's really beautiful art! Man, to do all that digitally... O.O

      I'll hopefully have it up this weekend! ;)

      1. :D
      2. WHAT
      NO IT'S NOTTTTTTT!!!
      I'M SERIOUS RIGHT NOW
      IT'S REALLY REALLY GOOD!!!
      XD, oh, don't worryyy, it's not a huge thing!
      And NOOO, I LOVE IT, SO I'D NEVER BURN IT!!!!
      3. YAAAY, XD! Glad it did! ;)
      4. EXACTLY, XDD! ART PROGRAMS NEED TUTORIALS OR INSTRUCTION MANUALS OR SOMETHIIIING! XDD!
      Heyyyy, the official DanTDM chair-spin! XDD!
      5. XD, no- actually, I think a lot of good artists learn by doing that! :D

      DID I DO IT
      IS THIS ONE A LOT SMALLER!?
      I shall see in a couple days, hehehe!

      Delete
    4. PART 1! XD
      XDDD That's totally fine! Long comments are lovely! It just means we gotta be patient for me to reply back cuz I need a block of time to do it. XD
      NOOOOOO, THAT'S NOT A BAD THINNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGG!!!!!!!! XD
      XDDD YOU SHOULD MAKE AN EDIT OF THAT, OM. XD
      Hmm, mine would be "I write cliff hangers in stories and then never continue the story." Heh. XD
      That's all good! My mind thinks of kooky things all the time. XD It makes life fun!

      WOO, COMMENTS WITH PARTSSSSSSS!!! XD

      Delete
    5. PART 2! XD

      1. Yeah! That'd be so cool! :O I'd love to meet him and Mira. ^.^
      2. YESSSS AND WHEN YOU FIND IT, IT'S IN THE EASIEST SPOT. XD
      3. GAH, I LOVE MT. SHIVEER. XD
      4. Trains underwater... *thinks of Legend of Zelda* Heh, in one game, Link (the main character) drives a train and at one point, he goes underwater and there's train rails under there. XD It's very pretty. XD
      ACK I JUST FANGIRLED BADLY. XD
      5. XD True, true!
      6. Exactly! Let's just hope AJ is working on a new one. XD
      7. AHHHHHHH, SO PRETTY. :O

      Woo! Can't wait! :D

      1. *smiles back* :D XD
      2. Finnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnne but someday, you might find me in your den with a blowtorch (Like Dan. XD) and I'll be screaming "WHERE IS THAT HORRID ART I MADE?!!!!" XD
      3. <3 It really did. I never draw realistic so that is a huge compliment. ^.^
      4. YES. LIKE PIXLR I ONLY KNOW A FEW TOOLS AND THAT'S IT. AND AND AND GAHHHH. XD
      Yeeeeeeeeeeessss! XD *rubs face with hands and makes funny faces as I spin around in chair* XD
      5. Yeah, that's true. I mean, how else do you learn anything new?

      YES
      IT'S SMALLER
      CONGRATULATIONS MY FRIENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDDDD!!!!!!! XDDDDD

      Me: *walks up to podium*
      Me: Ahem, is this mic working? *taps it* *it screeches*
      You guys: *covers ears* OWWWW.
      Me: OOPS! SORRY!
      You guys: *glares*
      Me: Heh heh. Um, anyway, I am here to award this shiny trophy to Swirlshine for making a comment shorter than her last one! It's a huge accomplishment for anyone so GIVE A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR HER!!
      Me: WOOOOO GO SWIRL!!! *claps and jumps around*

      3. Hehe- you're really good at it already, it seems! :D
      4. EXACTLYYYY XDD! And OOOH LEMMIE TRY!
      *Grabs a rolling chair and spins around in it like Dan)
      XDDD!
      5. Yeah- it'd be harder if you didn't try other art styles off the internet and all that, XD!

      WOOOOOOOOOOOOO I DID ITTTTT!!!!

      Me: *Steps up to the stage and takes trophy*
      Me: *Says in important-sounding voice* I'd like to thank the academy... whichever one that is... and Lostfairy, for presenting me with this award, and... um... my improving commenting skills!
