    Hey everyone, it's Pyro!

    So one of my current projects on here is Xenoblade Chronicles Afterimage, a successor of sorts to Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Like that game, Afterimage relies on a gameplay mechanic known as Blades, which take on the form of sentient weapons in the form of characters. The amount of Blades is meant to be unique as possible, allowing players to get attached to different characters and play alongside those that they like.

    During my research, I discovered that most if not all of the Blades in XC2 were actually designed and developed by guest artists, submitting character designs to the studio and working alongside them to flesh them out for the final product. That's then I realized... Wouldn't it be fun to do this "guest arti…

    Sketch Request Blog

    January 28, 2018 by Pyrostar

    Since you guys are so great I figure I should show my appreciation to you all :3

Only one request per user for now, though I'll probably make a round 2 eventually. Also, I'll only be taking requests for fan characters, because there's a lot of real characters i probably can't handle accurately.

    That said, please request some arts!

    Hi, everyone!

    Long ago, a user named  developed a community-collab Paper Mario project where every chapter was developed by a different user. Recently and I have been considering to do a similar game, where again, the content is developed by you, the users who sign up for the project.

    There are differences on how this version of the game is handled, however. Instead of users merely suggesting concepts down in this blog's comments, they will actively be writing the chapter that they sign up for, and users will build off of the previous chapter with twists and turns taken from the information that's already there. Muffin and I will personally work together on the game's opening, and will handle the mid-chapter interludes in order to tie thing…
