Today i've woken up to see a lot of requests for some of my old artwork to be featured on some groups, specially some artwork that was made as a collaboration between me and cjsluggle. So i guess, that even if they were kind of a dick on the last few months before they dissapeared off dA, i shall honor them a small detail.
One of the reasons this person left dA was because of this Gender Bender artwork they and i used to work on. Until life caught up with us and it was no longer relevant to our interests. That was the reason they left, because of the preceding fame this person had, and how, by that, they were unable to move forward aristically. Also other things having to do with Life.
So what did they do? they removed all their artwork and closed their account.
Sonic them, I don't chuckle i do accept and embrace where i come from and what i used to do, even if i do not feel exactly proud of it anymore. And well, let's face it, i'm not going to draw any Gender Bent Tails/Sonic/Amy/Anyone anytime soon ( inb4 i sketch some of that sometime soon )
I am not really going to do any more of these things on a regular basis, if at all. So, whenever i get any of those requests, it seriously bugs me off, but it also serves as a cruel reminded of how little you all care. with the exception of the 7 people who do give a fuck.
I would like you all to do me a favour. I am no longer going to accept any inclusions or requests of groups specially if the artwork is derived from me working and collaborating with this person, as they'd would like for all of those images to be removed forever. I am keeping those pictures for archival purposes, since i used them to learn my way to do artwork and they are literally my beginning on this world. There is other plenty of artwork that was done by me retouching other people's artwork to choose from.
And really, you could all just accept the fact that i am not the same person i was 5 years ago. 60ish percent of my watcherbase is people who favorited every single piece of my GB artwork before watching me, about 33% are machines or hoarders, and the remaining 7% is people whom i've knwon from forums or elsewhere.
You are all free to leave, there's nothing more of what you came for in here, it is over, it's time for you all to let it go.
Many people think i am angry and that i want all the attention and shit, but that is not the case, i don't care, but almost all of my audience is just there for the wrong kind of artwork, artwork that is never going to happen again. All i want now is to draw things that make me happy, and it'd be awesome if others would enjoy it, however, i am not going to draw things for other people's preferences anymore.
I am done with this. If you enjoy what i'm doing recently? great, if you don't just leave. I am not forcing anybody, in the same way i'd like not to be forced to draw in participate in things i am no longer really a part of or have any interest in.
A lot of you have already pulled the card that i am not good enough and that i would only get financtially aided by carrying on with this thing. Well, i am not going to. I no longer care, even when all i drew and worked on was that sort of thing it was never enough, it has never been enough, noone has ever wanted anything from me, i don't care anymore, so yeah, don't come with that excuse of potential clients either, because as you can probably appreciate, noone is interested, and i've stopped caring long ago.
It was fun while it lasted, but seriously guys, it is over.
