I won't be deactivating this account or deleting any of the artwork, so those of you I have drawn for won't have to worry about deleted pieces in their favorites list. I'll keep checking this profile to respond to any comments or notes that I get over the next week or so, but over time, I'll slowly check less frequently.
I've changed a lot since I started using the username "Hawktal0n." I made it about 9-10 years ago, back when I was obsessed with a certain book series. The name stuck with me, so every new site I used, I choose the same handle. I've grown a lot, and I can't thank you all enough for sticking with me through every small change I've gone through since starting this account. But I feel months of inactivity, coupled with the figurative dump truck of new things in my life I've had to deal with in that time have left me changed to the point where I just don't feel like Hawktal0n suits me anymore.
Furthermore, I've made a lot of mistakes on the account. Too many to remember, too many to fix. My gallery alone is a hot mess of screw ups ;D So just changing my username won't quite satisfy me on my quest for change.
To everyone who watched me or faved anything in my gallery, to those who left comments, or drafted comments but were to shy to post, to those of you who took a moment to look at the silly little things I created in my free time, thank you all!!! You're wonderful, and I appreciate all of you. If you would like my new username, just send me a note and I'll hook you up. Just know that I will not be taking requests anymore on my new account.
To those of you who read until the end, I give an additional thank you for your time and understanding.
