I think it's time to leave deviantART now!
It's been a very interesting 6 years on this profile. I've been on here since middle school and I think it's time to finally let go of this account.
I'm much older now, and I have much more to do and a lot more to think about. I feel like my overly-attached concern for this site is getting too out of hand.
I know I said I'd leave before, but I couldn't be more serious this time!
I never thought I'd finally have the guts to detach myself this profile, but fortunately it got easier to in the end. A lot of my old friends just left abruptly; so much that I really find
no purpose in being here anymore. I found myself getting incredibly sad over people who never really cared in the first place. Unfortunately, this profile is just a constant reminder that they aren't there anymore. There's nothing I can do about it and the best I can do is let go.
Still, I'm extremely happy I joined this community, and I have no regrets being here. I met a lot of wonderful people and have seen a lot of wonderful artists grow in their skills.
Before I go, I'd like to make some shout-outs to the greatest people I've known on here. Okay, a lot of people.
I'm not trying to be all dramatic. I just want to give people what I wish I had gotten.First of all, a BIG HUG and shoutout to all of the more recent friends who have kept me positive and afloat!! I love you guys!!: Now here's to the long-timers who I'll never forget
<-You guys were a huge positive part of my time on here
<- You have always been a great artist and friend
<- Drawing your requests made my day, sir. Keep being awesome.
<- We go back a long ways. I enjoyed illustrating your wonderful poems.
<- You went through a few profiles, but you'll always be unforgettable. You were a great friend and artist.
<- I always enjoyed your style.
<- I will forever love your style of art. Very inspiring!
<- You were always sweet and kind. Thank you always!
<- You will forever be 1st place in the History Of People Who Improved Their Art In .00000001 Seconds. Seriously, you're awesome and you improve at an immense rate.
<- You were one of my earliest and greatest friends. My only regret is that I never drew anything to honor you with. I hope you are having an amazing life.
<- I don't know where you went, but you were one of the greatest friends I could ever ask for. Thank you.
<- You are composed of awesomeness and greatness. Continue to be destructive!!
<- Star Ronin is awesome, sir. I loved every single bit of it. You are a great comic artist. Continue to be successful, my friend!
<- You are seriously one of my favorite artists of all time. I don't know why, either. Your style is so unique and different. I will always love you, dood!
<- Some friendships weren't meant to be, but I still give you credit for being one of the best on here. One of the only people, actually, who shared the same taste in music. That was incredibly rare in a friend and still is. ASITD was one of the most fun projects I ever worked on.
<- We didn't talk much, but you were always there till the end. I always appreciated your art and friendship.
<- What can I say other than you are one of the greatest friends I could ever have? I mentioned in a previous shout out that it's hard to find someone with a good taste in music. Not only do you have just that, but also the same faith as me. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
<- You were awesome and a genuinely concerned friend. Thank you for always being there.
<- Or Ondeko, as I fondly remember you. I've had no other computer desktop background for the past 6 years. I've switched from a 2003 HP, to an ACER desktop, to now a iMac computer. But still, Mr.Grumpy is in HappyLand. Thank you always. I loved your art. Continue to thrive and be awesome.
<- The only other awesome person I know who is into A7X. Thanks for always being awesome. May you ride many giraffes into many sunsets in the future!!
<- Sir, you have always been a good friend and a lovable guy. You were always super encouraging and gave me the continuing drive to draw things. For the times I let you down, I sincerely apologize. Just know that I'll always be grateful for you always just being you and nothing else. You'll be successful in whatever it is you chose to do, I know it. Not only because of your great skills, but also the genuinely nice guy you are. Trust me.
<- I can't get over how amazing of an artist you are. It's difficult to find someone with great talent and a humble and loving personality. Thanks for always being there.
<- Our friendship was fun, interesting, and strange at times. I can't recall specific times, but I can always recall that you were there. It meant a lot. Thanks for making those early years count.
<- For some reason, when you added me those many years ago, you scared me. But goodness, your art was and continues to be breathe-taking. It's so odd and unique. I will always love what you do and will always remember the good friendship we had on here.
<- You, sir. You have been there since the beginning of time. I can never thank you enough for your friendship, art, and unique sense of humor. It took me a very long time to realize it at first, but you are by far one of the most loving people I know. You make it so easy for people to want to be your friend. I'm sorry for the times I might have been hard on you without reason. I didn't understand you at times and I was a more difficult person. But since then I've seen you for the good friend you are. May you continue to thrive in your artistic endeavors, my friend.
<- I could go on and on about why I'm going to miss you dearly. For as long as I've known you, you've been a great inspiration to me. Your art has incredible distinction and character. Your multiple mastery of styles has always encouraged me to do better. More than all of this, you've just been such a great, positive person. I can never thank you enough for being such a wonderful person to me. My love for you will always be great.
<- I'll never forget. I came onto dA one day and saw a deviation in the Newest section on the front page. It was titled "+Yuki Snow+" and it was an Oekaki of a boy in a scarf in the snow. It caught my fascination so much that I also wanted to see what you drew. I was blown away. I watched you and favorited every single thing you drew because you were my major inspiration to improve. I commented and faved and faved and faved hoping for the day I would be good enough to where you would watch me back. One of my childish ambitions in the early days was to be friends with a well known artist on dA. I had no idea that the person would be you. Since June of 2006, you have continued to be the greatest friend on here anyone could ever EVER ask for. I don't know how it happened, either. Through all the things in life, through all the setbacks I've caused between us with my aimless anger, we still managed to make it this far. Your positivity and unconditional friendship has continued to keep me motivated not only on here but in life as well. I used to think making good friends on the internet was B.S. until I met you. You are one of the only people I've met on her, gotten to know more, shown my face to, and heck, even had Skype conversations with. You will always, always ALWAYS be an incredible inspiration to me. More so, you will always be the greatest friend I've ever have on deviantART. I love you with all of my heart. You will always be the best sister I never had. Thank you for everything.
<-My first watcher, my first surge of inspiration and motivation. You've been gone for a very long time now, but I will always give you gratitude for being the first welcoming face in this community. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Some of you know I couldn't live without you. So don't think this is goodbye forever. You will find me, trust me. Thank you deviantART community and all the people in it for such a positive artistic experience. To all the friends on here, I love you all dearly. Continue to draw and become better artists and always remember: art is better with MORE BLOOD.
