Do you have the scraps notifications active for my gallery? 

20 deviants said Yes :nod:
16 deviants said I didn't even know that option existed :o
12 deviants said Not really
9 deviants said I would, but I'm not sure how to activate them :shrug:
1 deviant said I had them active before, but I turned them off.
I finally found out the retail price that the Nintendo Switch is going to have in my country.

Without games, extra joycons, pro controllers, carrying cases, SD cards, just the console, before scalpers... the magic price tag is $500 dollars! . This might vary depending on the store or demand, I wouldn't be surprised if some stores go for $600.

The place where I asked only had 10 units authorized for pre-order, so I'm not sure how many units are going to be sold in total. I won't be rare for scalpers to jump soon knowing the switch popularity, even with that price, since they did the exact thing with the new 3DS on black friday.

Based on personal assumptions and previous experiences, I predict the games are going to cost between $70 and $80 dollars each depending on the franchise, and the prices are going to stay the same for around 3 or 4 years. Games with Mario or Zelda on the title rarely drop in prices.

Unless I find a way around it I won't be getting one anytime soon, so have fun Switch players Bad Augury..Onion

This is the song that I will forever listen in my head when I think of Shovel Knight:

Bonus Remix:
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Official Gameplay: Hang Eight Level 

Side by side comparison:
This is basically what I meant when I said that the Switch prices were going to go through the roof in some stores when it finally came out:

Zelda for the nintendo switch:

$107.36 per copy (Price in US dollars) Keep in mind this is not even the  special edition.

I blurred out the shop name because I want to avoid troubles for them or myself. 

I'm aware that they're free to do whatever they want with their products, is their bussiness after all. However, is stuff like this that would make me quit gaming all together if there was no way around it.

I'm trying something different to display my scraps without mixing them with the main submissions.
Shantae - Dance through the Danger (Metal Cover)

It was on my suggested list and I figured some of you might like it :)

I'm a Graphic designer, digital and webcomic artist. Looking to unify good humor and fun in my artworks.

I've been a comic strip enthusiast since I can remember, glancing through the pages of the local newspapers, looking for the Sundays comics. Starting my own histories when I was little, with borrowed characters from awesome artist like Jim Davis, Charles Schultz, Bill Watterson and many others.

In November of 2009 I joined DeviantArt, full of fears and insecurities about my own quality as an artist, in the vast world of the internet. But thankfully that never stopped me from giving my all. Since I've been trying to deliver the best quality of artwork I can possibly make for all of you to enjoy.

And I really hope you do :)

Hey Luis? Is it alright if I ask you something? 

How do your commissions work? I'm just asking in case I get some spare money later.
