Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! Before I continue I want to apologize for not posting last week, I just completely forgot!

This week instead of posting about todays Rare Item Monday, I will be posting five facts about Martin Luther King Jr. Day! If you don't know who he his, here is a little bit about him.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement.

Lets start with fact number one!

#1 Martin Luther King was not his given name.

He was born Michael King Jr. named after his father Michael King.

#2 From 1957 to 1968, he traveled over six million miles and spoke over 2,500 times.

During these 11 years, he also wrote five books and published several articles.

#3 He was arrested 29 times and assaulted four times.

He was seen as a threat to American security by police officials. After his "I Have A Dream" speech, the FBI intensified their investigation into King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

#4 There are approximately 900 streets named after MLK in the US.

After his assassination in 1968, cities across the nation began naming and renaming streets in his honor.

#5 His mother was also murdered by a gunman.

On June 30, 1974, Alberta Williams King was shot by a gunman who claimed that Christians were his enemy and that he received "divine instructions" to kill Kings father; however because Alberta was closer to the assailant, he opted to shoot her instead.

I hope you enjoyed these facts and learned something you didn't know before!

Here is todays verse.

"Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." - John 8:31-32

As always, bye Jammer's! And ~Jam On!~

Me: K!
You guys: Well?
Me: ?
You guys: We're waiting.
Me: OK



Today I bring to you...............

A few details you never noticed! Well, you might have..

1. On this wizard hat, there are what appear to be... stitches? I never really realized this until a few days ago! 
This pie hat shows to be angled towards the left, but when you put it on..
 
Its facing the bottom!

 
This...
its..
its just hanging out of nowhere! Unless..
ITS A BOOBY TRAP!? 

These type of items, are said to be from "The Lost City" a very very old city..
But..
WHY DOES IT LOOK SO FUTURISTIC?! It annoys me so much XDD
You can make pet mantis's look murderous
and haunt your dreams. 

 Dangerous Spikey Eggs!
Even if inside the egg is..
 
I wonder where the spikes came from?
AJHQ is obsessed with spikes!(Who knew)
And uhm..
see answer for mantis.

 
Despite J2 being removed as a Jambassador before these came out,  AJHQ still made it so you could become a spinny boi, they continued to put these memes on stickers for vidcon, plus on the Daily Explorer when they were showing everyone you could become a pet koala, which I thought was quite unfair to J2, despite it being AJHQ's game.
ITS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO ROTATE THIS THING.
ITS
IN
FUR
I
AT
ING

Its in fur at ing :D

OK That's all for nowwwwwww!
Byeeeeee
PEACE

Blogger Request -- We Are Messengers!

Hello, everyone!

Karalee here, back with another weekly request! This one's from our very own Graciepopstar91 -- Darren and Heidi of We Are Messengers!


When I got my reference photo (shown below), I also did a bit of reading up on how We Are Messengers was formed -- it's a great origin story. 😊 I really enjoyed learning about it!


Once the reference photo (shown above 😉) was gathered, I started to draw... and guess what? I actually drew my own chibis! No base this time! 😄 *squeeeeeeeeeal!* I feel so happy and accomplished!

They're a little simpler in form this time, due to that fact, but I'm hoping it's a good kind of simple. Let's see what you think! 😁


I had so. Much. Fun. With the hair guys. Having a photo reference to draw highlights and lowlights from takes ALL the stress out of it!!

I primarily used the Reed brush on varying (but usually low) opacities. "WE ARE MESSENGERS" is written using the Twig brush, and "Darren & Heidi" was written using the Bamboo brush. The slight glow behind the letters was achieved by creating duplicates of the text and using the Gaussian Blur effect on it.

In other news, Heidi's dress gave me a spot of trouble when trying to get the correct shades of blue, and I had to make up a color for Darren's shoes, because the picture doesn't go down that far. (Come to think of it, I had to imagine the length of Heidi's dress, too, but a.) The style made it look like it'd be floor-length, and b.) Chibis are generally very forgiving in the area of height differences.)

If I could change anything now, I think I'd see if adding cute little mouths would improve anything. (It might make Chibi!Darren's beard seem a little less... odd, by giving it a place to belong.) Additionally, I would also make a light-colored splotch of background color for them to stand on, so we could more clearly see Chibi!Heidi's dark-blue shoes. (Which I also imagined the color of, it occurs to me.)



That's all I've got for this week! Next week is scheduled to be The Avengers, Part 1!

Bye! 😀 *waves*



PEACE!
LOVE!
NINJAAAAAAAS!
