Man, this has been a wild ride! First of all, I want to say thanks so much for the people who have been giving me such great encouragement throughout the past few days. Been doing my best to focus on positivity, and it's been really cool getting to know some of the people who have reached out to me. =)

I know I've said it a few times now, but I apologize to the Rayman fans that were disappointed with my falsification of the Rayman leak. It was never my intention to make people angry or upset, but I admit it was foolish of me to have not anticipated that people's feelings would be hurt. I want people to know that I don't take it lightly.

Really, I wanted to do what I could to honor Rayman's legacy by creating art for him in Smash style, but I recognize that I didn't have the purest of intentions when posting the fake leak. I'm going to do my best to earn the respect that people have been generous enough to give me.

I also want to answer a few questions that I've been getting a lot.

Can you do [insert name] for Smashified?
I am taking suggestions. However! I probably won't be paying much attention to suggestions on deviantart, just because I'm not super active here. If you'd like your suggestion to be seen, you best bet is to tweet it with the hashtag "#smashified." I try my best to see all of the suggestions, but there are definitely a lot!

Do you do commissions?
For now, I want to focus on creating existing video game characters for the Smashified series. I work 2 jobs that keep me pretty busy on a regular basis, so I don't really have the time to take on additional work. However, I'm hoping to make myself available to do commissions sometime in the future.

What program do you use for your Smash style stuff?
Adobe Photoshop CC/2014.

Can you teach me how you do Smash style art?
A lot of people have been asking if I'm interested in making more in-depth tutorials about some of the techniques I use when making Smashified art. The answer is: Yes! I'm hoping to put together some form of tutorial in the future. How soon? I'm not sure. But know that it's on my mind.

(Update Feb 25)

Can you upload PNG of Rayman?
I've actually been planning on doing this, but I never got around to it. =P I'll do it ASAP

Can you share the PSD of Rayman?
So I had the idea to release the PSD of each Smashified character whenever I put up a subsequent episode. What do you guys think?

Can I use Rayman in a project of mine?
Totally. =) Just be sure to credit me wherever it's appropriate!

What music did you use in your videos, and where can I find it?
The music is a couple remixes I made specifically for Smashified. You can find both of them for download on my Sound Cloud:

I'll update this journal entry if there are other common questions that come up. Thanks so much for being patient with me, and I hope the Smashified series can be a start to me giving back to the community! =)

I've been an artist since birth. Growing up, I loved to draw, and eventually, I started drawing on the computer, starting crappy drawings in MSPaint and moving through pixel art and eventually into various forms of digital art. I also loved playing video games, and these two passions shaped me into what I am today.

I graduated from college with a BFA in Graphic Design, and today I'm a video game developer, graphic designer by trade and a hobbyist illustrator.

Hello there! I loved the work you did on Rayman! I actually believed for a while that it was real! I was so hyped for it! and Rayman isn't even my most wanted character for Smash 4 DLC! Speaking of which, I wanted to ask if you could Smashify Bandana Waddle Dee from Kirby and Lark from Pilot Wings 64. In case you don't know who Lark is, here's a pic:…

Lark is the one in the middle of the group, by the way.

Hi there, Rayman fan here. :D

There's no need to get your pants up in a knot, I thought your lil' scheme was epic and very thought-through! You've got some amazing talent, dude! I believe the true rayman fans out here would surely share the same opinion with me.
