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!

  1. Very interesting. I really wish I knew how to do this so I could put my art in the game in all honesty. It's just awful that feel like they have to right to go and steal art from others. I've been catching a lot of people doing this too, mostly just adding an acrylic effect to a picture and using the airbrush tool in certain ares. It's disgusting.

    1. ^^ I agree. As much as I'd like to take my better art and put it in AJ, it's so wrong for people to steal art and claim it.

    2. If used correctly though, this could be used to DIGITALIZE art you made rather than take art.

    3. Well, I was going to use art I've made in it instead, so that's something.

  2. I heard that Idozanimaljam made a live video on YouTube where he/she was HACKING into AJ.
    Not the brightest person ever. Who proves they're a hacker to the entire world like that?
    My sister looked up the username, and it didn't show anything, so I think they were banned.

    1. I believe Idozanimaljamz has hacked in the past too.
      Probably how he got the magenta furry hat he traded Bepper.

  5. But the Animal Jam art studio isn't compatible with my surface pen, so I have to use other apps to draw decent art.

  8. I know this is a post from a year ago but I want to comment so badly, I want to get my opinion out there. IDozAnimalJam is a hacker, (I think, I heard a lot from Jammers saying so.) and she/he was currently banned. One of her videos is a hack and you shouldn't click on it!

  9. That second painting is by @Apofiss on deviantart., I think the first one is done by them as well. I'm not completely sure about the first one, but the second one i know for sure!

  10. I have mixed feelings about this because I do think the creater of these fake yet wondrous masterpieces is the adversary, but I myself have been tempted into this though never have done it. Sadly I cannot decide which side I am on, though this is completely a horrible ting to do. Maybe they really did make the art, or they had a good reason for cheating, though I doubt it.

  11. I really wish people would stop treating this like it's only art theives and fakers who are doing this. Some of us (like me) are actual digital artists with good programs that want our original artwork as den items without having to crappily remake it using the AJ painting tool. We're not ALL art theives.
