Newest Deviations

This is my newest work as of now. It doesn't really reflect what I do on average, but it's my most recent.
I really post stuff on Deviantart a lot and I submit in masses at a time, so my newest things may often be similar. If you look at my gallery, you will see that I have a great variety. ^ - ^

This is a really beautiful image, as a whole. A lot of effort when into making this a reality, from posing hi-res 3D models and organiz...


Super Smash Bros. Arcade - Choose Your Fighter! by MachRiderZ
Super Smash Bros. Arcade - Choose Your Fighter!
I had a dream a few weeks ago that there was an arcade cabinet of Smash Wii U... So I made a mock-up menu of it... Then I animated it... Then I added a debug menu to it... Then I recorded a video of it with a phone... Then I let it sit on the internet. When I made this (before I decided to fa-leak-ke it), I wanted to make something that looked cool and that would hype you up. Something Etika would freak out about, ya know? So by posting this anonymously, I got some to read some pretty candid comments. A lot of stuff about it being a cool concept (and getting DK's translation wrong? sorry) and people being interested. The idea with the amiibo support was that you could bring your amiibo to one of the arcade cabinets to access one of the fighters that wasn't available from the default roster. I also felt that the arcade would be a cool way to earn custom parts and alternate specials for characters. The Debug Menu was heavily influenced by Melee's, and I even set it up so I could have the video show Popo's name in the character list. I also designed the Debug Menu with the mindset that the entire Wii U version of the game was built into the arcade cabinet to allow for fluent balance patches and easy access to character data.

So, it started as a fun concept and ended up being a fun fa-leak-ke. We're in the Omni age. Nothing is real unless Random Talking Bush says so. :P When Etika said it reminded him of the old days, as an artist, I felt accomplished. :D Enjoy!

Fun fact: The backdrop behind the amiibo is actually a black trash bin.  This is also an amiibo from Japan! :P Enjoy!


MachRiderZ's Profile Picture
Connor Rentz
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
I am currently a young independent film maker. I'm an experienced actor, but I'd sooner write and direct. I've also been involved in game design and image editing. It wasn't until the beginning of 2013 that I decided to focus solely on independent film-making and theatre, although I have always known I love making movies.

My main work includes short films such as WORTH DYING (inspired by one of Aesop's Fables), LAYLA (based on the song by Eric Clapton), ZELDA 2014 (a modern adaptation of The Legend of Zelda), and ROCKY RACCOON (based on the song by The Beatles). I often work with on a "low-to-no" budget, and I like to direct my own writing because I have very clear visions of what I want to capture. I also believe in giving other people, artists, actors, film-makers, etc. a chance to be involved and use their talents. I like to tell honest stories through my films, even though I tend to lean towards a more fantastic style and setting. As of 2014, I have worked with nearly forty different actors on multiple projects.

I also have experience as a traditional stage actor, including award-winning performances such as Radar O'Reily in M*A*S*H, John Hale in The Crucible, and myself (along with various Shakespeare characters like Juliet and Macduff) in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged. I am currently directing The Importance of Being Earnest at Heritage High School, where I am the founder and president of the school's Thespian Troupe, #8074.

I was also one of the three founders of the popular online fan-game Super Smash Bros. Crusade, which I worked on for five years starting in 2008. I stopped using the name Dr.MarioX after I finished working on Super Smash Bros. Crusade in February 2013.
