IMPORTANT UPDATE - PLEASE READ

The party date and time has been changed to December 2nd at 4:00 PM MST.

AJ Masterpiece Fraud

Hey Jammers! Nafaria here! I'm back with another post.

Recently a handful of people in the AJ community have somehow discovered a way to convert regular, every day image files into .ajart files. This means that it IS possible to take a picture off of the Internet and make it into a masterpiece.

Take a look at these two works of art, for example.



The lines are too smooth on these two masterpieces for them to have been created in AJ paint. They're beautiful drawings for sure, but cheating by converting these original works of art into masterpieces is just dirty.

Several days ago, IDozAnimalJamz made a video on how to do this.


It probably won't be long before AJHQ does something about this growing issue. Hopefully they do something about it, because fake art screws up the quality of REAL masterpieces.

Well, that's all I have for you today. If you do happen to know how to convert ordinary image files into .ajart files, I suggest you play it safe and not act upon it.

Goodbye!

725K Views!

Wow guys! We recently hit 725,000 views! That's crazy! :D Thank you all so much for supporting the Whip. It means a lot. ^.^

In honor of this achievement, I will be hosting a party, just in time for the Jamaalidays! :)

Here's the invitation:


There will not be a contest, however. Instead, I'm planning something BIG... coming to y'all on December 1st. c:

Anyway...

Once again, thanks for reading the Whip! You guys are awesome! Bye!

Black Jamaaliday Socks

Hi everyone! :)

Today we're going to be talking about an immensely rare and unusual item: the black Jamaaliday socks.

If you watched Julian2's video on the top ten rarest NM items a few days ago, he talked about these mysterious socks for a little while.

I actually didn't know that these socks existed until I watched his video. :P

Here's what the socks look like:


They appear as any regular pair of Jamaaliday socks, just... black.

There are many theories on how these socks came to be, such as the one Julian explained in his video, where AJHQ stopped releasing the black socks in the Jamaaliday gifts. Another popular theory states that the original color of the socks just ''glitched'' and became black.

Whatever the reason for these socks' existence, I have to say that the socks are very stylish.

What do you guys think? ^-^

Thanks for reading! See you later!

A Girl Who Played AJ Got Murdered!?

Hey Jammers!

This is going to be a rather serious post, since we're going to be discussing serious things like murder.

Before I get into any explaining, let me give you a link to a video about this horrific tragedy. Click here if you're interested in watching it. I suggest you do (if you're comfortable with it), because at the end it shows why exactly I'm making this post.

Now for the story.

So, last summer a fifteen-year-old boy alledgedly lured twelve-year-old Kailey Vijil out of her house around midnight by asking for help looking for his lost cat. He took Kailey to an open field, and then strangled her with a t-shirt and left her body lying lifelessly on the ground.

According to charging documents, the boy tried the same tactics on another girl twenty minutes prior to when he knocked on Kailey's door.

Sad, isn't it?

Take a look at this picture of Kailey, courtesy to the Vijil family.

Image result for kailey vijil

As you can see, Kailey is giving a hug to Liza at the SLC Comic Con!

You can make an inference that Kailey liked to play Animal Jam. Or maybe she was just at Comic Con and decided to give a creepy giant panda a hug. You never know! :P

But, let's be honest here... she probably played AJ.

Kailey, you will forever be remembered by your family and friends, and the Animal Jam community.

Thanks for being a part of this game.

Snowyclaw is Now a Member of AJHQ

That's right, Jammers! Snowyclaw is now working at AJHQ as a digital media intern.

She's going to be working with the community and marketing teams throughout the school year.

AJHQ released the first episode of a new mini-series on their YouTube channel a few days ago called Snowy Presents. In this episode, Snowy collabs with AJ artist Artymis and gives us some art/masterpiece tips.

You can watch the video by clicking here.

What do you guys think of having a "Jambassador'' as an employee of AJHQ? This definitely is a big step in not just Snowy's life, but the Animal Jam community as well.

Thanks for reading! Bye!

Snow Leopard Slippers

Hi Jammers! ^.^

Recently an author over at the DE leaked a picture of a warm and fuzzy pair of snow leopard slippers that come exclusively with the new Animal Jam Boxes.


It also comes with a code that gives you a virtual version of the slippers!


I personally think the virtual slippers look absolutely adorable. :)

The first-ever Animal Jam box ships just in time for the holidays. So, if you want to get your very own snow leopard slippers, go to www.animaljambox.com.

Thanks for reading. Happy jamming!

Fan Art from Princessbg

I don't really remember if I ever made a post about this, and if I didn't, then this post is WAYYY long overdue. XD

Anywho, a while ago my friend Princessbg drew a picture of my deer for me!


How awesome is that!? :D I love it, Princess! Thank you so much!

Sigh. Me and my forgetful brain... always spacing the best kinds of posts. :p

Julian2's Video

So... apparently a picture of my hand sporting my DIY glitched ring that I posted about almost a year ago was recently featured in one of Julian2's videos!

Here it is:


I think it's pretty cool that my AJ craft made an appearance in Julian's video. ^.^ Thanks, Julian!

Hey!

AJHQ decorated a Sky Kingdom den for all Jammers to visit and explore. As usual, there are some unreleased items in these kinds of dens, and this is no exception.

Let's take a look, shall we?


A beach canopys/shade tent, with a few beach toys underneath


A clothesrack


An orange tree

Another tent


A water bucket


A coat of arms


A couch and table


A...

Wait a minute.

What's that!!??

It looks like... a message in a bottle!?

WHAAAT!?

Hmm... this is quite a mystery.

What do you think that bottle is doing in AJHQ's den?

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Toucan Mini Book Quiz Cheats

Hello Jammers!

As you all know, now that toucans have arrived, there must be a mini book for them, right? Right. You can find it in the flying animals section on the first floor of the Chamber of Knowledge.

I thought it would be nice to give you guys the answers to this little quiz at the back of the book. Here they are:


If you get all five questions correct, you receive a holographic toucan trophy for your den.

To wrap up this short post, take a look at what I caught someone saying in Jamaa:


o.o

Uhh... okay...

Umm.

Bye, I guess? :p

Hi Jammers! It's an update day, as expected. Let's get right into it.


TOUCANS ARE HERE! YAY!!! They look so cute and colorful!


A new 2D adventure? Ooh, I hope this will gives us some answers to our conspiracy theories.


A new den AND a new pet!? HOLY CRAP. This has to be one of the best updates ever!


A spike sale is going on this weekend as well!


There is also a new armor set in the Diamond Shop, and a toucan Sketch Jam!


Introducing Animal Jam Box, a new way to get exclusive AJ products and codes!

So... basically, this is like Webkinz's yearly POTM plush subscription, but Animal Jam. Interesting!

Wow... this update was packed with new and exciting features. I can't wait to design my toucan! :D

Bye!

NEW Animal Jam Snow Fort Den Play Set

Hey Jammers! Guess what!? :D I've got some exciting news to share with the world today...

Jazwares recently just released a new Animal Jam play set! It's a Snow Fort den, and comes with a snow leopard figurine, two accessories, and a couple of miniature den items, too!

Here's what it looks like:


It costs about $15.00, and you can either purchase it at Toys 'R Us or online.

I personally think the snow leopard figurine is absolutely adorable. ^.^

So... if we add all of the currently available AJ den play sets, that equals four, right? Therefore, this marks the fourth AJ den play set so far. Pretty neat, I must say.

I wonder what kinds of items come with the code included with the set. If you guys know anyone who has the items that come with this set, please tell me!

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

Spring Mira Statue

Hey Jammers!

I recently submitted an entry for 2fangwolf's Item Invention contest, and I thought it would be fun to show you guys what I came up with.


Ta-da! It's a spring Mira statue!

We already have an icy wintery Mira statue, so why not make one for spring?

A summer and fall one would be nice as well.

If you're interested in entering Fang's contest, click here for more information. ^.^

Thanks for reading! Happy jamming!

Peck's Earring

Hi everyone! :)

So, if you've been keeping up with the Animal Jam community lately (or just the game in general), you'll know that Peck is apparently missing her earring.

You know, the little jingle bell that is pierced on the end of Peck's ear?

Image result for animal jam peck

Yeah, that one.

In a secret room in the Front Lines adventure, Peck somehow misplaced her precious earring, and Greely, for whatever reason, found it sitting in a pool. But that's somewhat besides the point... I think. :/

What really bugs me about Peck's earring, though, is how the ear it is pierced onto alternates in different images and graphics of Peck.

Here's a quick example.

See the picture of Peck above?

Now look at this picture:

Image result for animal jam peck

See? The earring and the thin purplish-pinkish ribbon swap ears. o.0

Here's another example.

Take a look at this picture:

Image result for animal jam peck

Now take a look at this picture:

Image result for animal jam peck

Again, do you get what I'm trying to say?

I mean, this graphic of the old version of Peck doesn't even HAVE an earring OR a ribbon on any of her ears!

Image result for animal jam peck

Don't you think that all of this is kind of odd?

It may or may not have anything to do with the whole ''missing earring'' jazz, but it's quite interesting to observe how the artists at AJHQ interpret where Peck's accessories should go.

What do you guys think? Which Peck do you like better: the old Peck, or the new Peck? I think both are pretty decent.

Thanks for reading, and keep on whipping! ^_^
