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. ^ - ^

Super Smash Bros 4. VS Battle on Final Destination by PichuThePokemon

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...

MAKING OF Hyrule Warriors Link - Sunset by MachRiderZ
MAKING OF Hyrule Warriors Link - Sunset
Final picture here: Hyrule Warriors Link - Sunset

Basically, this is a very simple way to show how exactly I put together this shot. I posed the model of Link in BrawlBox and took four different screenshots, each with the camera camera angle but different lighting settings. Using the "color to alpha" option in The Gimp, I got rid of the black in the last three shots and put those on top of the original to give it a bit of that fantastic artsy feel. I mean, it's better than just one source of light. Doing this just puts multiple points of light on Link, essentially. There are probably much better ways to do this, but I haven't been into 3D models that long, so I guess I'm learning. For anyone who's interested, enjoy! :)

Hyrule Warriors Link - Sunset
Found where someone posted Link's 3D model from Hyrule Warriors on BrawlVault, so I made this! Multiple shots were taken with different lighting settings to create the final pose, along with some blurring. Enjoy!

Here's the making of this: MAKING OF Hyrule Warriors Link - Sunset

Smash Bros. Custom Stages - Murasame Castle by MachRiderZ
Smash Bros. Custom Stages - Murasame Castle
One of my favorite designs - the Mysterious Murasame Castle! Takamaru once infiltrated this castle, and now the Smash Bros. cast joins in. The match starts the players where they can make their way up or get knocked down to the bottom. The bottom of the stage is rather merciless - mainly because there are no edges to grab! This can lead to some easy KOs for any player, so be careful. The way up the castle is also troublesome if your opponents follow you up. The walls are still enough to bounce you back to the lower levels of the stage, but a platform keeps things a little clean. The top of the stage is the place to be - yet the roof of the castle is a bit small, so some floating islands give you more room to knock your opponents around. Sometimes, a platform rises out of the roof to keep things interesting. Who will own the Mysterious Murasame Castle this time?

Smash Bros. Custom Stages - 1-2 Remix (SMB3) by MachRiderZ
Smash Bros. Custom Stages - 1-2 Remix (SMB3)
Another classic Mario level converted into Smashing space - 1-2 from Super Mario Bros. 3! This level had a lot of grassy slopes and pipes, so the layout was pretty easy to recreate. In fact, the stage is just the middle portion of the level, most notably where there was a P-Switch hidden and the P-Blocks made led to the piranha plant's pipe. Sadly, there is no P-Switch here, but the right side of the stage uses springs to emulate the Music Note Blocks! This stage is much wider than SMB1's 1-1 Remix, so a KO will cost a bit more damage.

Smash Bros. Custom Stages - 1-1 Remix (SMB1) by MachRiderZ
Smash Bros. Custom Stages - 1-1 Remix (SMB1)
Here's something a bit more simple than Mushroomy Kingdom - a remix of 1-1! At least, a portion of it. This makes the classic block formation at the start of Super Mario Bros. into a more balanced stage. The most chaotic part of the arena is right under the five consecutive blocks, where certain hits can bounce players off the ground and into the blocks. Otherwise, 1-1 Remix keeps itself pretty open for the fight!

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.

Sadly, no. I tried the past two years for SSBC, but I couldn't fit it into school and such. Maybe one of the coming years? :)

Like, requesting a character? I don't work on the game anymore (I haven't for two years now), if that's what you're asking.

Hi Connor it's me again and I'm curious to ask you something, what is your ambition besides becoming a Video game Designer, Developer and an online Video game sensation?

I mean I read your profile, saying something about "focusing more on your film career" and stuff, so can you tell me what your dream is?

So I can you to my dream stamp: kambalpinoy.deviantart.com/art…

I just want to make good original movies someday. Movies that are big and exciting and unpredictable. I want to do anything I can to make the industry better and more accessible for other film-makers. :)
