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!



Well, for the time being, the whole power surge issue in my building has been resolved, so I can reliably upload content again!

This also means I can finally respond as to the progress of the commissions and requests I'm currently working on (it also helps that I was able to use the times when I had temporary power to work on a number of them!)

Once again, I want to apologize for the delay, and I want to assure everyone that I intend to keep many of the promises I've made for this year and those before it!
First journal I've made this year, and it's gonna be a short one, since at the time of this post, the power in my building has been going off and on for the past few days. (Right now, I'm typing this journal from my phone, which is the only connection to the internet that still works.)

I know a lot of you have been asking about requests and commissions, and I wish to assure you that I have indeed restarted work on them since the beginning of the year!

With the whole power situation in flux, though, I need to ask for a little more patience before I can make any serious updates to the Active Commission/Request Board.

I apologize for any inconvenience, and I promise I'll update this journal as soon as any change happens!
By RedTheHedgehog14, no, what the heck, been a while since I've done one of these!

1. You must post these rules
2. Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves
3. Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag
4. Choose 10 people and get their icon in your journal
5. You have to legitimately tag 10 people
6. No tag-backs
7. You can't say that you don't do tags
8. You MUST make up journal entry

Ten facts about me:

-I'm able to do that "Live long and prosper" hand motion with both hands!

-My general hierarchy for tagging people is: Two friends, four watchers, and four strangers.

-I'm capable of doing a three-man, three-3DS run of Tri Force Heroes...with one man!

-Since the start of 2015, I've gotten into many shows from the 70s and earlier, including The Lone Ranger, Zorro, and Dragnet.

-One of my personal wishes is to have a 3D printer to create figmas of my own characters...

-Though I plan to earn my driver's license by the end of January, I enjoy riding trains and buses more.

-I once personally met the president of the company responsible for the production of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses. I applied for an internship over there as well, but nothing ever came of it...

-The Xero part of my screenname came from my brother; he used it as part of his old Phantasy Star Online account before I later took the handle for myself. Before that, I would've gone under J-Omega instead.

-I have a recording of my own idea for a Lore In A Minute video of The Wonderful 101 saved somewhere on my computer.

-As a result of having it on VHS and watching it almost weekly as a child, I'm able to recite the entire Sonic the Hedgehog OVA, voices, sound effects, inflections and all, from start to finish by heart.
This is also true of the Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog episodes "Slowwww Going", "Over the Hill Hero", "Grounder the Genius", "Blank-Headed Eagle", "Sonic's Song", "Road Hog", "Best Hedgehog", "Tails in Charge", "Super Special Sonic Search and Smash Squad", and "Sonic Breakout".

The tagger's questions for me...

1) What Grade are you in?

Graduated from college with an Associate degree in May last year.

2) Naruto or Dragon Ball Z or both?

One Piece, then Dragon Ball, then Naruto, in that order.

3) Are you familiar with the Fanfic, Dipper goes to Taco Bell?


4) (if WWE Fan) Favorite Wrestlemania? (if Not) Favorite Deviantartist?

SigurdHosenfeld, since it was their sexy artwork of Rosalina and Peach that opened me to DA in the first place.

5) Do you have any pets?


6) any Shippings that you think will get criticism from the Fandom?

Which fandom?

7) Favorite Dessert?

Carvel Ice Cream Cake (Accept no substitutes!).

8) Favorite Sonic Video Game?

Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

9) (if WWE Fan) Attitude Era or Ruthless Aggression Era? (if not) Yaoi, Yuri or Hetero?

Yuri, then Hetero in that order.

10) What do you think about the SU SJW Suicide Controversy?

Honestly, when the creators of the very thing your fandom revolves around are (very rightfully) calling you out on your actions in response to someone simply drawing a character in a different way than the creators first intended, ya done F***ED UP.

Now my questions for you!

1. Do you prefer traveling by land, sea, or air?

2. What do you primarily use when you create your art?

3. What's the most obscure game (in your opinion) that you own?

4. If you have OCs, are the majority of them male or female? If you don't have OCs, have you ever considered creating one?

5. What would you consider to be the luckiest thing that's ever happened to you?

6. Does it matter to you if a person behind an avatar or screenname ever reveals what they actually look like?

7. Extend your right arm out to your side as far as it can go, then let it fall. What's the first thing your hand lands on?

8. What was your favorite show you used to watch as a kid? (About 13 or younger)

9. Have you ever gone out of your way to see or play something in a language you didn't understand?

10. On a scale of "LBX" (6 inches) to "Gurren Lagann" (Bigger than a galaxy), what's your preferred size of Mecha?

And for these questions, I tag...

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!

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.

Xero-J Original 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!)

(Note: The maximum page size for these is considered to be Tabloid (11 x 17 in), so try to keep it concise!)

Um, sorry if I sound rude but, your current commission/request thing hasn't been updated recently. Also another thing, since I recently made a commission and since most people ask on how it's doing, I decide not to ask how it's doing since I don't want to end up asking about every now and then. 

(Good luck on mine, BTW.)

Are you open for commissions? Do you have a list of subjects you do/don't do?
