After nine years on deviantART, many of them active and many of them inactive, I've decided to close this account. Since joining this site I've changed a lot as a person and need to make a break from who I was when I was a young teenager. Some of the changes I've experienced have been good and some of them have been bad, but the sum of it is that who I was then is not who I am now, and trying to drag this account back up from the shadows isn't fair to me, and it isn't fair to you. At this time I haven't decided if I'll open up another account, but if I do, it will probably not be terribly active. I went to school for art, but I have been unable to create any in a year. Part of my decision to close this account is probably frustration at that fact, but it still stands that this is overdue.
I will keep this account active for another month, and will link my new account if I've decided to make one during that time. I will be deleting all of my deviations so if you'd like to keep any of them, now is your chance to save them to your devices.
If you've got a tumblr and would like to follow me over there, my username is remustheravenclaw. I mostly post about superheroes and cats and cry a lot about them (the superheroes and cats) and working in retail.
To those who I've met over the years on here, thank you for being encouraging and inspiring to a budding artist. The feedback and kind words I received here helped me to become the artist I am today. Without you I'd still be drawing like I was at age 13, trying to find my own style. Keep creating, keep encouraging, and keep being critical (but not unkind) to young artists. You may one day say exactly what they need to hear to put their pencil to paper and keep going.
With all of the love in my heart,
Edit: created a new account, you can find me now at starbirdroad
