Smash Bros for Switch: The stuff nobody discussesOkay so Smash Bros for Switch has been announced, and I had journal I was writing on this topic before the game was actually announced, assuming that it would be an enhanced port. Nothing is confirmed (people need to stop assuming anything is set in stone from the short, vague, cinematic trailer), so I'll keep the stuff I had pre-announcement that assumes that it is a port.
You see most people focus on the same thing, What characters are most certainly absolutely going to be in the game just because I want them or Which characters do I want to be in the game. Sometimes people discuss the potential for 3DS content, mostly stages, to come to this deluxe version of Smash 4 or Smash 5. There are some things that some people don't discuss really. I'd like to do just that.
Controllers are a very important aspect to Smash Bros, specifically the Gamecube controller. USB controllers such as Gamecube controllers that use the Gamecube a
Should I Buy Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon??Just to clarify, no I do not mean which version should I buy, I mean should I actually buy one of the games or pass on them?
For me, Pokemon Moon was an okay game. The beginning of the game on Melemele Island was such a chore and was one of the times when I was not having fun with a Pokemon Game at all. I believe the other islands were definitely a lot more fun, and I did enjoy how the rest of the main game unraveled. With that in mind, I really haven't touched the game a whole lot since I completed the main story. I went and captured all of the Ultra Beasts in my version and Necrozma and did some shiny hunting. Other than that, I gave up on training my team to level 100 because there were not many places to do so and I really only touched the game to get event Pokemon.
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon looked pretty bland to me for a while until they began introducing new Ultra Beasts and the Ultra Recon Squad. The game seemed exciting and like it would be really different from S

My ComebackMy Hiatus
I do have to apologize for my huge, extended hiatus. As of this moment, I haven't uploaded anything since June, and before those three Deviations it was January, and even then, I know I had had large breaks except for pre-Sun&Moon animations. I don't want to excuse my absence by any means, especially to those who I owe things to, but school has kept my hands full for quite a while, leaving me less time to work on things like animations. The loss of the drive with all of work on it (I had one animation that had not been uploaded and several PDN files of deconstructed sprites) made me lose a lot of motivation, pretty much completely for the Valina Region, and I am pretty upset by that. I'm especially upset that I wasn't able to fulfill my many promises of finishing that Dex whenever I originally planned to have it finished (I believe in like 2014 or 15 I said it would be done by the beginning of 2016 or something).
I've also switched to a Mac, which, doesn'
Pokemon USUM News on July 19th?http://www.pokemon.jp/special/mystery/
I have seen the translations of the questions shown in this Japanese trailer, and they all seem to relate to the space, dimensional, and otherworldly parts of past Pokemon games. I will be honest, I'm not exactly sure what Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have in store for us, and I wasn't really excited when I saw the original reveal trailer, but this mysterious trailer and page on the Japanese Pokemon website has me really hyped for the games now!
To me, it looks like these games will do something with the alternate universe that has been described in past games, space, and of course Ultra Space. The thing that I like about the trailer is that it doesn't really use just Ultra Beasts but the dimensional rifts from ORAS, Deoxys's appearance in ORAS, Mt. Moon, the Distortion World, and the Unova alien Pokemon, Elgyem. The whole trailer gives off the impression that Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will have a story centered around this type of stuff, and it
Your thoughts on... Me?You know I've been here for over six years here on Deviantart and I've made a lot of friends, and I believe I've improved as a hobbyist artist. I've had my fair share of mistakes and learning moments, but I've also had a lot of great memories here.
What I would like to know is:
What do you think about me, Christopher White?
I'd like to hear what my watchers and friends think of me? What do you think of my art? My improvement? My attitudes? My personality? Anything, the sky really is the limit. Any opinions you may have about me, negative or positive, I really don't mind hearing negative thoughts/opinions about myself, fire away!
Projects are Cancelled for Now or ForeverI would guess I should have seen this coming eventually, but the drive that I have kept all of my projects on has been lost this week and I am hesitant as to if I'll be able to find it or not. I probably should have made an effort a long time ago to have backed up all of my stuff to a backup cloud or storage device, but unfortunately, I did not. So unless if my drive is found, I will be cancelling all of my projects here on Deviantart.
However, I am not done with Deviantart at all. Let me clarify. My Valina Region project will still exist, but all Pokemon will stay currently as is, with any unuploaded ones being thrown from the dex. A few numbers will be readjusted, but this will be the final dex most likely.
Animations will not cease either. The past month I have been getting back into animating, and finishing a couple commissions that have been long overdue. Of course, these will unfortunately need to be restarted, but I will continue to animate Fakemon and Pokemon sprites, esp
A Second Mario Kart Game on Nintendo Switch?Disclaimer: This is not about any rumored, leaked, or official game. These are simply my own ideas.
Mario Kart on Switch Currently
As of May of 2017, there are nine official Mario Kart Games on Nintendo Consoles. With the first game being on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the franchise has had a game on every Nintendo console, except for the Gameboy, the Gameboy Color, and the Virtual Boy. While later entries have adopted "retro tracks" from previous titles in their many tracks, every installment in the Mario Kart franchise has had a handful of brand new tracks. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the latest entry in the franchise, has all of the tracks from Mario Kart 8 on Wii U, including all 16 DLC tracks, and it also has eight brand new battle courses to coincide with its brand new Battle Mode.
While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game, receiving nearly universal praise from critics and fans, many pointed out the lack of brand new race tracks in the game. Seeing t
Fakemon of the Month: Month 1Welcome to the Fakemon of the Month!
Where I recognize a Fakemon or Fakemon line that shows impeccable creativity in design, type, background, and lore!
This month's Fakemon line is another really cool concept with even cooler designs! They are Grey-wingedBlitz's "Lords of the Beach!"
First off, I think the concept of a siphon Fakemon is an extremely unique one. I haven't seen one at all until these! For those of you unsure as to what a siphon is, it's a a tube-like structure in molluscs that allows them to breath, eat, and sometimes reproduce. I love how these Fakemon are often hiding under the sand and are seemingly shy in there first two stages, but Deograke then adopts the Dragon typing and is a such a powerful Fakemon!
Do you have any suggestions for Fakemon of the Month? Send them to me! Please however, I would only like Fakemon submitted after this Fakemon of the Month journal.
you can reply here or you can send me a note for a commission, whichever you prefer.

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!
Open Sketchbook and New Auction soon!Open Sketchbook
Thanks to everyone who give me their advice on how to improve the auctions. Starting next week I will have stash folder with a few works in progress. The link will be public so everyone can visit it. I will ask your help to improve the designs so I can sell them in the next auction or in the "Logo Store" section I plan to open.
For safety reasons, the images won't be too big and they won't be online for too long.
Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project ab
Happy 3rd Anniversary, Wyngro!Well, we got through year 3 of Wyngro everyone! I can’t tell you all how proud I am of all the artists that have joined this group in that amount of time, and how much you’ve all helped it grow. I’ve learned so much from this group, working with people, communication skills, organizing, art in general, (especially have gotten a lot better at color theory!) and just meeting and getting to know an assortment of interesting people.
I’m not gonna lie, there were a lot of really tough obstacles this year to get past, a lot of negative vibes, and a lot of people that have come and gone. I think that it’s a very easy option for a lot of leaders to abandon a project when things get tough and relationships get tested.
But like the cornball I am, I always think back to a quote from good old Dumbledore, where sometimes we must choose between what is easy and what is right.
Although it wasn’t easy, I worked through the struggles of toxic people and negativity, b
