Been a long while since I've done one of these, and a lot of stuff has happened since then. I decide to go off radar until I was finished with my classes, and since I finally am, I've got a lot of stuff to tell you.

For your benefit, I'll get the most important bits out of the way right now!

-If you've been following my Twitter, you'll know over the past week, I've been using a brand new PC for my working needs. Since then, I've put it through its paces, with all my usual drawing skills, video watching and emulation, and high powered stuff, like Team Fortress and PSO2. So you can count on me being online a lot more down the road in those games, especially since I can run them without crashing horribly!

-And for those of you who've been patient with me for so long...the moment you've all waited for is finally here.

That's right, it is what I consider to be late April, and that means...


...Yes, all of you who've been dying to have me ship you or your favorite character with someone else finally have the chance to ask me about it again! (Because let's face it, I know that's the first thing you're going to ask me for, so I may as well embrace it!) Of course, I'm also happy to take requests for almost anything else, too!

Just remember, if you want to ask me for something, read my guideline first!

Of note with these requests, though are a few new stipulations...

To make sure I'm not overwhelmed by requests, I'm limiting myself to only taking up to five requests at any given time. Commissions, however are infinite, since I tend to forget being overwhelmed easier when I'm being paid.

-Now that I'm free of classes for good this time, short of me actually finding work, I can finally continue my comic projects unhindered! Expect VS. Universe Chapters 1 and 2 to update within next week or the week after!

-While I'm on the subject of classes, I should mention one great thing that came of it: I now have my very own official portfolio website! You can find a link to it right here in this journal or down in my ID section from this point onward!

To Xero-J Studios!

And of course, with E3 and the rest of Summer ahead of us, I've got quite a few events planned for my gallery, especially in light of Smash 4 3DS's eventual release!

In short, it is good to be back! Well, more back than I've tried to be these past few months...
