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 :3D-Struction: by Xero-J
Final Smash Festival Weekend Event No. 2: Mii Masters
Starts from Now to End of Sunday

2-4 Players/Mii Fighters Only/Any Stage/3-Stock Match/No Time Limit/All Items Off/Customization On

Okay, so the first Final Smash Festival event was a bust, but I intend to make up for it with the second weekend event: Mii Masters!

This is a chance to put your carefully crafted Mii Fighters to the test, no matter the equipment or the battlefield!

Like the Events in the Pokemon World Summer, there will be set times during today and this Sunday when I'll open a room for anyone on my list who offers to challenge me.

Those of you who come out on top in a battle actually get an incentive this time around!

The Mii Museum I've been talking about for the past few weeks is ready to show off, and if you missed your chance to be a part of it during the Smash 4 Demo Challenge, you can get a shot at it again with this challenge!

Mii Museum No.1: Jalen by Xero-J

If you feel inclined to join me today, as always, my FC is 0817-3741-2956, which you can find here and on the Stuff About Me section of my main page!

Fan Games: Special Fan-Submitted Events!

This time around for the Final Smash Festival 2014, I'm going to do something special that involves others in a way that goes beyond just participating in Weekend Events...

I'm going to let you guys make your own events to host under the Final Smash Festival name!

In addition to the weekend events that are held by me, starting from now until the end of the Final Smash Festival proper (whenever that is), you guys can submit up to two ideas each for your own online competitions at any time!

Want an event where we all duel with swords? Battles where the Smash Ratio is jacked up so that we all go flying from the slightest touch? A match where explosives go off at every second?

Let me know what you want to see, and if it seems good enough, I'll dedicate the entire day to that event!

And what do you get for doing this?

Like the Smash 4 Demo Score Challenge, the offers of a free commission and a place in the upcoming Mii Museum still stand! However, you now have a choice between the two of them per event submitted!
And of course, if you have any prizes you would like to donate to those who win your events, that's fine too!

If you have an idea for an Event, let me know with a comment or a note!

Game Boy Color :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.
Wonderful Halloween (October 2014 Only)
Wonder-Xero by Xero-J
Wonder-Kirito / Wonder-Asuna by Xero-J
Wonderful Mario Bros. by Xero-J
Pompadour Paragon by Xero-J
It's October, and with October comes Halloween costumes, cosplay, and other such dressing shenanigans!

To celebrate the occasion, and also because I'm a massive Wonderful 101 nut, I'm taking special commissions for any character and every character to don the CENTINEL-Suit, be they actual Wonderful Ones like Red-Emeritus, Ones based off of other characters, like Mario and Kirito, or completely original Ones like Xero!
