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!

Over the past week, quite a few things have happened.

I've since returned from my trip to Virginia Beach, Pluto finally gets some much needed camera exposure, and...Satoru Iwata has passed away. While I've made sure my respects to that last note are properly paid, I also have much, much more to say and do to make others happy in my own way!

I'll admit that I haven't been as active as I usually am for this site lately, and that's due to a number of factors, the most important of which is that I've actively been looking for serious work to do over the summer.

That said, I haven't forgotten that I have quite a few obligations to fulfill here first!
Primarily, comics, commissions, and of course, the Pokemon World Summer 2015...


-Since I've had a lot on my mind about commissions and how they're going, and I know many of you are waiting on me to have them finished, I've gone back and overhauled my Request/Commission pending board, to make it easier for both me and my client to remember what it is you asked for...

I've been personally using it for a while, now, but I'd say now's a good time to reveal it to the general public!

This version will be replacing the old one I've had on my main page, and over the course of the week, I'll be rolling out a few extra updates to it! Namely...

-A visual progression of each phase as I finish it. This way, you'll be able to see how it looks before I upload it completely! Of course, in this case, you can always feel free to ask me for a quick screenshot of how it's coming at any time, too!

-A number of new commission options to give me more range with some of my other mediums, namely Illustrator, Comic Workshop, and more!

-The ability to take requests and commissions from other social media sites as well! Got something you would like for me to do on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, or others? Let me know, and you'll see it there first!


-I said at the beginning of the year that I would be focusing on continuing my comic stories, and I dang well meant it! Starting this September, my regular art is going on hiatus to focus primarily on comics! While commissions and requests are one thing, expect some serious progress to be made on these in the coming months!

But before that, there's...

The Pokemon World Summer 2015!

The battle events that were meant to take place over the weekends of July have now been moved back to August, as I want them to coincide with a number of factors (specifically, the release of a decent matchmaking setup for Splatoon, the potential announcement of more Smash DLC, and my completion of the ORAS Pokedex!)

-Art sections will now have two weeks dedicated to them instead of one, as evidenced by the duration of the Mega Showcase!

-Speaking of which, I have the next topic for it, and you may recognize this one as a fallen project that once again sees its time to shine!

To close this, I do have a final announcement to make for my commissions...Prices for all of them will be going up in September.
I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some of you, but I feel like I've advanced too far with my skills to continue to work for a maximum of $4 per project. That said, with that raise in prices, as a consolation, the number of free request I'll do for any one person will also be raised!

...Oh, and before I forget to mention this, in addition to my tumblr's Sketchbook and Personal blogs, I've ope-er, I mean...rented out a new blog space to a certain crotchety simian concerning the Amiibo figures!

Go check it out here!

Sketch, Lineart, and Color
Raleno Cinoten: 2nd Update by Xero-J
The Magna Doomship by Xero-J
Rosalina: Summer in Beach Bowl by Xero-J
Skylanders: Ancient Zodiac: Serpentarius by Xero-J
The whole 3-step process, in which you receive the sketch, blank linework, and a properly colored, unmarked version of your desired artwork!
Colors! 3D :Commission Only:
Golden Classic Controller Pro :Colors 3D: by Xero-J
Game Boy Color :Colors 3D: by Xero-J
8-Bit Luigi :Colors 3D: by Xero-J
Rosalina: Windy Weather v3D :Colors 3D: by Xero-J
Special option only available through commissions!

This type of art is done through the Nintendo 3DS Colors App! For this you get not only your requested art, but if you have a way of viewing 3D images, you'll get the 3D file, too!
Galaxy Note Style :Commission Only:
Pompadour Paragon by Xero-J
The Diamond Princess by Xero-J
Rosalina: STAR 108 T-Shirt by Xero-J
Delta the Sorceress by Xero-J
Special 3-phase color option available through commission only!

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.
Smash Style Symbols
Marl Kingdom Universe Symbol by Xero-J
Xero-J Original Universe Symbol by Xero-J
Paragon-R Universe Symbol by Xero-J
Sword Art Online Universe Symbol by Xero-J
Gunstar Heroes Universe Symbol by Xero-J
Ever since Smash Bros., I've been a fan of the idea that every series has an insignia to represent them, which I why I often make my own for those outside Smash, or of my own design.

I've decided I can do the same for any universe of yours (or a universe of something you've seen or played before!)
One Shot Comics :Commission Only:
Who Gets Him First? :Mini-Comic: by Xero-J
Too Much Water :Mini-Comic: by Xero-J
Lament of the Save Block :Mini-Comic: by Xero-J
Since I want to get back into comic work, and I also want to make a career of it, if you have an idea of something for a one-page comic or set of panels, let me know and I'll take it on (for a price of course!)

(Note: The maximum page size for these is considered to be Tabloid (11 x 17 in), so try to keep it concise!)
Splatoon: Inkling Initiative :Summer 2015 Only:
Splatoon X STAR 108 by Xero-J
The Pen Is Mightier by Xero-J
I'm on a serious Splatoon kick in terms of art lately, and especially coming up with custom Inkling characters and weapons!

To that end, I've decided to make designing Inkling characters or weapon concepts for others a special Summer exclusive option here at a discounted price!
Not only that, but any purchases made here have the option of either being drawn normally or in Galaxy Note style, at your choice!

Not only only that, but like the Gift Ribbon Girls series before it, any commission made here will go toward a special collage by Summer's end!

I just realized something on one of your sketches on Tumblr. A shiny Braixen should be Krystal or something like that.
