Drawing Within Progress

Hey Jammers! Whoa, sorry for not posting for so long. Even after the update! This week I've been improving some things, like homework, but my posting schedule remains spotty. ;^^

Because you've probably heard all about the update already and there isn't much going on, this is yet another check-in to tell you that no, I'm not dead. 


Even though I love being nonmember, I recently got a one-month membership. Gasp! Why? Because I wanted to finally make my very own masterpiece!

Here it is so far:


It's pretty weird and patchy so far because I'm experimenting with different colors, but it's just the background. I'm planning on drawing a panda resting against the tree in the front! ^-^

Here's a tip: the airbrush tool is easier to use than the regular pixel paintbrush because it's easier to blend. In addition, it's just more natural looking.

This is unrelated, but you've all seen the new "fall" homepage, right?


I'm not too thrilled about it, to be honest. It's just too bright and mismatched for me to associate it with Autumn. 

Also, I don't know if it happens to you, but it causes a ton of lag! It's so hard to type my login info with all the moving graphics. Eh... I'm not a fan of this.

Wanna know some homepage designs that I AM a fan of?



The second one is my absolute favorite. It's very suitable and natural yet really interesting! It makes me so happy just to look at it.

Animal Jam has always had lovely design, in-game and on the homepage, but this new "fall" homepage is kinda subpar. It's fine if it's only temporary and if it'll go back to normal at some point, but I'm not too wild about it changing every single season. There's so many other changes that happen to AJ each day that any kind of stability creates comfort, like a homepage that stays. 

I hope that it eventually changes back, but it isn't so bad. Besides, someone probably worked too hard on that homepage just for some dork to write an essay complaining about it on her dumb blog.

I love AJ, but I need to go to sleep. I've stared at so many screens today that my eyes are fried. 

Goodnight, friends! Or good day, but where I am it's nighttime. Sleep tight!


More posts coming soon ~

    1. You're so kind, thank you!! I used to love how the home screen would sometimes be the underwater one or the land one, depending on if you refreshed the page or not. They looked great together. :D

  3. That art looks AMAZING o.o

    I hate AJ's art tool since yesterday I spent an hour on some art then I lagged and crashed halfway through a character's face DX

    I miss the old homepage so much :(

    At least its not as bad as when webkinz ruined my childhood by redesigning their site but still, that homepage was so familiar :(

    1. Thanks so much!! All of this wonderful feedback is reminding me to go back and work on it before my membership runs out on the 31st. XD

      I remember when I used to play Webkinz... my account has been there since 2007. Sometimes I go back and check because I'm curious and it always seems like they change way too much without making it better lol

      Back to the Art Studio. There's a little save button that you can click to save a file of your drawing to the computer. There's also a load button where you can load that file and continue working on it! You'd need to save again at some point, of course. Crashing while drawing is the worst. D:
