Hey guys, it's Omni. I just wanted to say thanks to all of the artists who have submitted artwork into our community smashified gallery. It's been super cool to see how our series has inspired people to make artwork of their own—in some cases for the very first time! We hope to continue inspiring people, and we hope to explore other ways of getting the community involved.
Just a bit of an update regarding the gallery folders. We've decided to get rid of the "Smashified Fan Art" gallery folder. Originally, it was meant to simply be a way to showcase artwork that is directly derivative of the artwork produced for the Smashified series, but it was difficult to communicate that purpose to users, and as a result, the folder never really got much mileage and simply confused people. It makes more sense to just focus on Community Smashified.
We also thought it would be good to give a bit more spotlight to the Community Smashified submissions that we feel are especially excellent. Because the artists on the team have their own full time jobs, we can't produce Smashified artwork as quickly as we might like, so we're trying to adhere to a schedule of an episode every 2 weeks. As such, it will be a while before we can get to some of the less popular submissions. Community Smashified is a great way for artists throughout the community to take up the cause and smashify some of their favorite characters that might not be an official installment in Smashified for a long while, if ever! So if we see a smashified that is especially well crafted, we'll be highlighting them in a new "Community Spotlight" gallery! As always, we encourage people to push themselves and strive to constantly improve.
That's all for now. Thanks for being such great supporters, and we'll continue to do our best to deliver great renditions of your favorite characters.
