Fellow deviants who, for one reason or another, have earned my trust on this site!

They're artists I'd be happy to draw stuff for/draw stuff with, commenters who almost always have something to say about one's work, thinkers who, on occasion, have even inspired me with some of my ideas, and just all around nice people!

If you find your icon on this list, consider it a sign of my utmost respect!

Final Smash Festival 2014 Logo :3D-Struction: by Xero-J


By now, the demo for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is now available in America for everyone, and to make the most of the span of time between now and when the full game releases, I have a little challenge for those who own it!

In the demo, within the Games & More/Vault section of the main menu (the only other options aside from Smash), you'll notice a coin count in the bottom-right corner, which rises with each match (specifically, the more you move the Circle Pad around during a match, the more coins you earn)

Img 1676[1] by Xero-J

While this serves no purpose in the demo itself, I intend to give it a purpose that shall be fulfilled by you, fellow Smashers!

I'm in a bit of a gift-giving mood recently, so my challenge to you is this:

Raise the coin count as high as you can by October 3rd!

I have a few special prizes for those dedicated enough to earn enough coins to break up to three limits I have set, as well as provide a screenshot of their achievement like the one shown above! From now until midnight EST on October 3rd, you can post any screenshot of your coin count; those who reach the tiers I've set not only get the rewards listed below, but also a spot on this journal, marking their achievement!

If you happen to have the Club Nintendo Platinum demo, and already have a headstart, that's even better!

Reach 5000g: Free Commission

Of course the most notable thing I can offer from myself is my art services, so for reaching 5000g in-game, I'll offer an art commission, free of charge!

Reach 7500g: Commission + Mii Museum Entry

For those who can break the 7k barrier, in addition to getting a free commission from me, you'll also earn a chance for a place in one of my future Final Smash Festival projects: the Mii Museum! While I can't speak of the full details at the moment, naturally it will involve Miis, as well as quite a few fan submissions, so if you manage to reach this tier, you could be part of something pretty big in the future!

Reach 10000g: Commission + Mii Museum + Exclusive Smash Artwork

If you're willing to put up with 5 characters and one stage long enough to earn 10000g in coins, I have something truly special for you!

Much like weekend events of the Pokemon World Summer, I've been working on exclusive artwork for it. Artwork that may never see the light of day beyond my computer...except for those who are able to reach 10k in coins before the full game hits the US on October 3rd! And of course, getting that will also net you the other two rewards as well!

There's two weeks to go before Smash 3DS releases in America, so let's all make the most of it people!

One last note, though: Don't go overboard with the Circle Pad. I'd hate for anyone to wind up busting their systems on my conscience...

Final Smash Festival 2014 Logo :3D-Struction: by Xero-J

The Final Smash Festival has begun, and amidst all the information we'll be receiving from the Japanese version of the game, I'm taking this time to start the first collaborative event of this series: Fighters United!

As you might expect, this collaboration will entail the playable fighters of Smash Bros. All of them. From each and every game in the series! Even those who remain hidden in Smash 4 will soon earn a spot in this grand roster artwork! (For that reason alone, there will be obvious spoilers about the remaining Smash 4 characters)

Every artist who joins will have their selection of one character to contribute to the piece, and it reaches its end when all characters have been submitted!

Rules

-To join, simply leave a comment on this journal, detailing which character you'd like to draw. This will be on a first come, first served basis, and available characters will be listed below.
Once you've chosen and completed the character, send me a link to the finished product.

-The entire character (from head to toe) must be drawn in color, sketches or linearts will not be accepted.

-You must also either submit the character as a .png file or on a transparent, or blank white background.

-When the collab is completed, all those who joined will receive the finished product through a note. You are free to upload or do whatever else you will with it!

CHOOSE YOUR CHARACTER!!

For this, you'll get the sketch as per usual, but the Lineart and Color will be done through the ultra sketchy style I use from drawing with my Galaxy Note!

However, while this is cheaper than regular color commissions, keep in mind I can only draw up to two characters with the limited space, so if you prefer detailed backgrounds or multiple characters, go with the normal one instead.
