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 a week ago, I made it clear that I would be going on hiatus for some time while I work out some personal stuff.

While in the past, hiatuses from me usually came as a result of physical sickness, school, or emergencies, this one is more...emotionally driven.

Today, I want to get the specific reasons for my recent "down"-ness off my chest, which I did with an editorial that voices my concerns.

Xero-J Editorial: About Time...

So that I don't automatically bum anyone out by sticking it on my front page, I'm keeping the editorial and any comments on it to Sta.sh only. Having said that, if you have the time, please read it and voice your opinions; hopefully, relating to others will help me shake myself out of this recent funk of mine!
I've...been feeling a bit down lately, and a side effect of that is that I can't seem to get into drawing anymore...

To try and fix this, I'll be taking a break from DA proceedings until I can get my life in proper order.

I apologize for this inconvenience, but I promise both you and myself, when I return, I'll be much more willing to show off what I've got behind the Sta.sh vault!

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)

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.
