Im leaving the community

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 12, 2013, 8:31 PM


There is no easy way to say this, but I think it's time for me to cut loose from here for a very long period of time. I have several reasons why, but lets just say it's very personal and I need time away

I've drawn just about everything that I wanted, and I met so many cool and interesting people on here, and I can't imagine how many people actually like me.  I'm not an ace artist nor do I ever plan to be later on, but I did draw a very wide variety of stuff.
:bulletgreen:I am NOT going to deactivate this account, I put way too much work into it.  I just won't be on here...

As for my OCs, I'm giving Taylor, Sara, and Kim to :iconpirata3:, Lily to :iconroguebaron:, and Rachel to :iconrazorvolare: Vicky isn't gonna be allowed for adoption...since I rarely used her, I'm going to just let her 'fade away'.  This is going to be permanent;  if I return later on (which won't be for a long time), I'm going to start fresh, including new OCs.  
Im taking Kat, Michelle, Sophia and Aly because they are my favorite girls and I have other plans for them.
 
I'm also closing my group....I wanted to say thanks to everyone who was in it :)

:bulletred:This will take place on Monday, HOWEVER, I am still waiting for :iconthatreallyweirdguyxd: to finish coloring my last commission (its a LOT of work).  After I post it, that will be it.

I initially wanted to just leave quietly, but that wouldn't be cool.  However, I don't mean to look like I'm wanting attention.  I"m being serious, when I say "indefinite hiatus", I mean it...it's not gonna be a few days or weeks...in fact, I don't know when I'll be back exactly, but guaranteed it'll be months.

I hope to see most of you again when I come back, if not, then I wish the best for you 8-)

Wow, It's sad to see you go. You were defiantly always my favorite artist. You may not think of yourself as an expert artist but your drawings always had a sense of originality. I'm going to miss looking forward to your newest picture. See ya around and I hope your life takes the direction you want it to. :D

Whatever you choose to do, my friend, I wish you all the luck there is. I know you will go far in the world. :)

However, you are wrong about one thing. There is no such thing as "leaving the community". No matter how long you wish to be away, you will always have a place amongst us. But even more than that, you will always remain in our hearts. Good-bye and good fortune. :hug:

You will be soreley missed.

I'm sorry I haven't been more active myself. I've been busy with my own devices and vices, and I'm not the most creative when it comes to requests.


If I do do anything big outside of Deviantart, you will be the first to know.

Check your notes.
(No, not now, Just... Just check em every so often. ;) )


Your friend in Cyberspace,
Captain Jevil.

Oh, no, well if this is what you have to do, then so be it, but I want to say to you is that, even though I haven't got to know you well, I felt that you've inspired me a bit form all of your awesome works, and I wish you good luck in your everyday life and maybe someday come back to DA with fresh new characters and maybe a new username, but I like Darkspeed a lot, so maybe not XD, so to keep it short, I'll miss you very much and hope that someday you'll return and have awesome creations when you do :tighthug:, but for now, auro'vaure! (Good bye :crying: :hug:)....

Ya know, this seems like one of those "alcohol sendoff" times i've seen before, but then again, i'm only 16, so I wouldn't know, hmm... never would I think that i'd miss an artist from the internet who've ive never met before, even his art. Your art had charming, playful, cool people, and the tickle drawings were like joyous times. The good thing about art though is the even when the artist is gone, the art and characters will always live on. Long story, I always think to myself that there never exists something as in "THE END end", because something always comes out of it, at least for me. I gotta tell ya, Kat is definately my favorite too. Good-bye, have luck wherever your travels you choose to go to be with you. :)

Wow... dunno what to say... well, I know: at least you mean you will be back. No matter if it's going to take quite a long time.

Okay... even if you'll be missed in this meantime, we respect your decision. And thanks for letting us know, in fact it's way better than leave without a word and worry your friends. :)

Best wishes, dude! :w00t: You rock!

Shit dude... Well...if that's how you really feel, I can't stop you.

You've made some great stuff over the years, both fetish-related and non. I probably haven't even commented on half the stuff I saw, but with each and every piece I always saw improvement. Whether it was facial expressions to even the tiniest of details, you just kept getting better. Heck, a couple of them cheered me up when I had a real bad day. It's gonna be real sad to see you go, but it's your decision and everyone here should respect that.

I still plan on coloring the pics I had received from you, and I still plan to give you credit for each one. Nothing will change from that.

So go on DS, go on and kick life right in the nads and show em who's boss. Show the world that you mean business.

:iconsoldierplz: "God speed, you magnificent bastard."
