Hey there, Ultizeta here! You can call me Ulti for short. I'm an all-around content creator making online media since 2010. I'm a large fan of video games, specifically Nintendo but I'm open to other publishers as well. The stuff I make tends to revolve around games or things akin to games.

Here on Smack Jeeves, my most well-known work was Kirby Adventure, a sprite comic I worked on for almost eight years. Now that it's finished, I'm working on starting to create my own original, drawn comics. I also do Let's Play videos on YouTube and occasional livestreams on Twitch, so follow me there by looking up Ultizeta.

Other random facts: I'm a digital artist, I love music, I spend most of my time talking with friends on Discord, I am gay, and I enjoy doing lots of critique and analysis.

@Abseka03: There is a wish that involves Pokemon, specifically a Treecko in a scarf and a Mudkip in a bandana at a minimum, and may or may not be related to or caused by, directly or indirectly, a crisis of some kind. This is the extent of current public knowledge on the project that we are willing to divulge at this time.

Good bye, Re:Kirby

You will be Re:Missed
Link must just be playing the quiet game with everybody in every single canon game.
I must say, the way you're doing the sprite borders now looks MUCH better than before, now that its not just on the outside of the sprite.
Sonic must be so tilted now
I'm predicting that all of this information is just for readers' benefit, and that the world is going to end, Luz's timeline is going to be reset, and everything that's already happened in the comic will happen again off-screen except this time, Luz and Meta Knight will arrive a tiny bit earlier and stop the ritual before it begins.

Well that's certainly forward
Read Unwary Mud here.

Also, I am officially OPEN for new review requests again! Send me a message or post a comment if you're interested in me taking a look at your comic, but please read the rules first!
@WarWithin: Since you mention being most upset about my qualms with your characters, I figure I should give a more in-depth reasoning for the issues that I took with them.

For one thing, I just want to say that just because you WANTED to show growth from beginning to end doesn't mean that you actually succeeded at it. You're confusing intent with result, and while that's certainly a commendable intent, it didn't come across in the comics at all.

Now, that isn't to say that the characters didn't change over the course of the comic. The problem that I viewed was more or less that their development didn't feel naturally motivated. When I said that "the characters undergo development as the story sees fit", I meant that their developmental changes felt forced and too sudden.

For instance, you're commending yourself on Josh's character change from being stubborn and power-focused to learning to accept his failures more graciously and to think of the bigger picture. On paper, that works well. In the comic, though, it basically happens without nearly enough effort for it to feel reasonable. Another character simply calls him out on his attitude, and the next battle he faces, he's immediately able to get over his negative feelings without much effort. Realistically, this kind of character development needed more time. The character needed to struggle to change in some degree, but instead it just takes a few words and suddenly his entire characterization has been modified.

There are similar moments throughout the comic involving characterization that just happens too quickly without much effort or focus. So, again, just because your INTENT was to show growth from start to finish does not mean it was done properly.
Read The Taken here.

Also, I'm not open for new requests yet, BUT! When I post my next review of Unwary mud, I WILL be open then! So, keep an eye out for that if you're looking to get on the upcoming list, and it should be out in the next couple of days.
Read Komorebi here.

Completely random side note: I don't know why but I kept trying to spell this comic as Komobedi. I kept having to correct myself, including just now when linking it.
I still really wish that the Death Egg Robot had a less generic name.

Ooh, this looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing your new direction.
@creca: I'm not sure how providing more context and explanation for already-existing world elements in the comic would remove reader interactivity. As far as complete madness, well, that's part of the issue, as that severely hinders accessibility. A comic can still be entertainingly wacky while still having a basic and understandable structure to its world. Explaining stuff like "what is the importance of souls in this world" or the like wouldn't mean stuff like "the sun itself merges with an evil onion guy and a friendly pumpkin royal to make a nigh unkillable demigod" couldn't still happen in the world.

@WiispNightmare: It means "able to see what came before it". It comes from people reusing parchment for scripture in the past. In this instance, I was using it to mean I could see what parts of this comic were inspired by Bob & George regardless of what process it went through.
