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!

December 4th...The official start of another 365 days of being me! And being me means having a lot of stuff to share with you guys as well!

The most significant of which is the reveal of the project I've been working on since the start of the year!

Gunstar Heroes: White Saga Logo by Xero-J   Gunstar Heroes: White Saga :Records of Time:
Gunstar Heroes: White Saga: Records of Time ~In The Distant Past~
In The Distant Past...: ~Story Demo (Gunstar Heroes)~

"We have to stop him!"

"Your journey ends here!"

"Where is he? That light! It's too late!"

"No! The planet...under one person's power..."
Theme of Gunstar Heroes: Legend of the Gunstars
In the distant past of the planet Gaia...
Two heroes faced the Destructor, The God of Ruin known as Golden Silver.
While their victory was not without sacrifice, these heroes, known in history as the Gunstar Heroes, defeated Golden Silver, wiped out the amibitions of the Empire who sought to use Golden Silver to rule the world, and scattered the mysterious Treasure Gems u

In a sort of nod to Throwback Thursday, my first exposure to the Gunstar Heroes series was Gunstar Super Heroes for the GBA, which I got for my birthday back in 2005. For that reason, it seems only fitting that I reveal the project I've been working on since the start of the year ON my birthday as well!

So, in addition to the Gift Ribbon Girls series and general holiday fanservice festivities (and of course, me getting to all those commissions I have yet to finish), all this month, I'll be uploading Gunstar Heroes: White Saga-related content as well!

I told you that December is my favorite month for a number of reasons, and this is one of them!

I want to wrap this journal up by thanking all of those who wished me a happy birthday (and to those of you who haven't yet, I know the thought's still there!) and hoping you guys will look forward to more White Saga content and the continuation of the Gift Ribbon Girls Series!

I also want to personally thank a few deviants who made/got me a few gifts!

Love-In-Belle with her written version of my Too Much Water Mini-Comic!:  Too Much Water?When the reviews came for Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, it and Omega Ruby got high marks. However, Groudon got a little peeved when he found one of the flaws in the game.
Too much water.
The logic of too much water was one of its flaws.
He turned to Kyogre with an annoyed look.
"I blame you for this," he stated.
"Me?!" Kyogre asked in surprise. "What did I do?"
Groudon looked to the tiny strip of land amidst all the water where the desk and computer were along with him. The sky was building up with gray clouds, signaling that another storm was coming.
"Nothing in particular..." Groudon replied with some dismay.

and...If I happen to get any more gifts, I'll let you know here!
We have reached the final month of 2014, and it's my favorite month for a number of reasons! And with what I have lined up, it'll be yours as well, I hope!

There are three major things that'll be hitting this gallery in the coming days, and in no particular order, they are...

-Gift Ribbon Girls!
Caitlin X Nellie: Gift for Renolamoi! by Xero-J Rona: Ribbon Outfit by Xero-J

First off, the debut of my special commission offer for December, the Gift Ribbon Girls series!

Throughout the month, various ladies from various series I've seen, played, or even made, will don my special gift-themed Ribbon Outfit!
That said, if you have any personal favorite girls you want to see with it, for a quarter of the price of a normal Color Commission, I can do that for you!


Wii U Three! by Xero-JAlice and the Digitize Shifter by Xero-J

It's the tail end of the year, and I've got a lot of fanservice/ecchi stuff backed up in (more so than usual!), so I eventually decided to just kick back and just let the fanservice flow for this month, so expect a higher volume of that good stuff throughout this month in addition to the Gift Ribbon Girls series!

-And Special Announcements!

It's not all ribbons and pantyshots for this month though, as on the comics/literature end, I'm focusing on one specific project that I've been secretly working on throughout the year...and the details of which will be revealed on December 4th (which also happens to be my birthday!)

I'm also making it a personal goal to clear my Commission and Request log before the end of this year, so people who've asked me for stuff, keep an eye out! (Unless it's been a while since you asked, in which case you may want to refresh my memory...)

It's not long now, but I've still got things to do before and long after I officially become old enough to drink!

Gift Ribbon Girls! (December 2014 Only)
Rona: Ribbon Outfit by Xero-J
Gift Ribbon Girls: Asuna Yuuki by Xero-J
Gift Ribbon Girls: Zinnia X Rosette by Xero-J
A special color commission offer in which up to three female characters per offer can be drawn wearing my special Ribbon Outfit as you see here!
Original, Fan-made, or an actual character, it makes no difference to me! (As long as it doesn't break my Can't/Won't Do commission standards)!

Also, every commission I receive for this will also go to a special collage I plan to have ready in time for Christmas!

The Magna Doomship by Xero-J
Rosalina: Summer in Beach Bowl by Xero-J
Skylanders: Ancient Zodiac: Serpentarius by Xero-J

Colors! 3D (Commissions 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 (Commissions 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.

Can I try drawing your ribbon outfit? I really like it and I promise to show you the finished product, but I wanted to try it for myself .

:star: I will probably be commissioning you for the outfit, too.
