I am going to bid you all a fond farewell. Deviant Art gave me some incredibly wonderful times. At times I felt tremendously talented, and then I'd look about and feel incredibly talentless in comparison to others.
But I've found myself coming back to dA less and less. Part of it was due to the submission changes, part of it was due to other artistic sites offering more. But rather than let my dA page slip into further obscurity, I've decided to call its quits... here.
Hopefully I'll still run into many of you on other venues. I found so many wonderfully pleasant people here, truly a group of talented people.
You can still find my silly photos (it is my passion and joy) at:
Flickr - www.flickr.com/photos/soiledpointofview/
and at Tumblr - soiledphotos.tumblr.com
You all take care, be good, and keep creating wonders... art makes us who we are.
