To my DA watchers and visitors,

We probably all knew that this time was coming... It's just that I am finally admitting it.
I have been a part of DA for just shy of 6 years now, and I think that's my cap.
Goodness knows there have been ups and downs... but in the end, my time here has taught me a lot and I wouldn't replace it for anything.
So, to all of you that have encouraged me, helped me, and been loyal to me: Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I would not have lasted 6 years without your help!

I am in my last year of school now.
I have received my college ring.  
I graduate in August 2011 with a BS in Industrial Engineering.
Pretty amazing when you consider that I joined DA when I was just a sophomore in high school, eh?

With all that is fast approaching, I simply don't have the time to maintain this account.
So, starting tonight I will begin the process of removing my stock.
I hate to remove the resources from all of you, I really do, but the time has come.
I just don't feel comfortable abandoning all these photos here...
I know that several of you have my stock downloaded and saved! For this reason, I am not deactivating the account. You may continue to use the stock that you have saved, simply credit and post to my main page or in a note, following the usual rules. I will still visit on occasion to keep things in order, and to look back through the pieces that have used my stock. I'm still very proud to have been a part of this community, and hope to see it continue to grow!


My DeviantArt stats upon departure:
1,156,197 deviation views

Thank you all for everything through the years.
Take care of yourselves.

After 6 years away from the site, found your Journal. Felt sad but very happy at the same time for the good changes in your life. It 's fair that you removed your stock pictures. Anyway, you left a wonderful legacy of images through the vision of so many artists, that will endure in time.
After a crisis years ago and very close to quit art, deleted tons of resources included your pictures. I might be posting a concept work prior to the final version actually uploaded, and will tell you when I do.
Wish you all the best in life. You've been a really fine person to meet, and all good things that will and are happening to you are well deserved indeed.
Hope your artistic vein will surface again sometime, not necessarily as stock pictures, but you expressing yourself through any art form. :hug:

First: Congratulations for your advances in study.

Second: I'm desolated because your stock photos (ergo your beauty) was a joy to my soul.

I don't downloaded your stock. I respect the artist's decision, but I'm sad, really sad.

Owever, I allways will remember your works.

Thanks, very thanks.

Goodness. I just read it (I didn't receive the "new journal" message... I'm so sorry!)... well...
I'm sorry you don't enjoy this anymore, but if it makes you happy again I'm glad you quit it then.
Thanks for sharing your great stuff with us! I'll never forget you, your kindness and your beautiful stock. Well, I hope you gonna make more art on your art account now.
Well, we haven't read each other for a long time... and maybe it will take ages again to read each other again... but I wish you all the best for your future.

Your stock was a great reference and inspiration, and because of you one of my favourite characters has now ... well, a real "face" and is no longer "just a drawing".

Thanks again, sweety.
We'll all miss you and we're all glad that we met you here!
(sorry for my bad english *cough* well, you know me, it won'T getting any better. :D)
It sounds strange, but I'm happy you make a decision which makes you happy.

What an amazing mark you have left here :) I used you in my third piece that I ever did and it is still one of my favorites. I am so glad that you are off onto your next step in life. Six years is a wonderful chapter in one's life and now I hope that you find the next ones just as fun and exciting. Who knows, maybe someday you will return and grace these pages again. Never say never. There is one thing I have learned, you just never know. Good luck in your future endeavours and adventures. Thank you for all the art that you lent to all of us to create with. I know many of us will continue to find inspiration and create more with the images you have left us.

I'm a bit late in seeing your resignation journal, but nonetheless I'm still very sad to see it.

Best of luck in your new adventures! Judging by your stock and the Mikaela shaped hole you're leaving behind I think you'll do amazing at whatever you set your mind to :)
