Au Revoir

115 Favourites
Made with Ultrafractal 5.4 and slightly adjusted in PS

Au Revoir does not mean goodbye, it means "until we meet again".  I don't know if this is the last art I will ever post on DA.  I just know I am angry
and sad and I just have to walk away for a time.  If things change for the better I might come back, but I'm not promising anything.  I don't mean to
create drama, but after being laid off due to the pandemic, I'm not in an emotionally good place.  DA choosing to do this at this point in time is
hurting a lot of people and seems like one big corporate betrayal.

I decided to delve into my and bring up U.F fractal, in my signature style using Phoenix and TIA formulas.  I know it's not the best one I have 
ever done but I can't render any UF fractals until I can get my new desktop up and running.  (I don't have the money for a new monitor at the moment.)

So I wanted to say one last time how much all my friends and watchers have meant to me for my 16 years on DA.  I will be posting some links where you can
find me or my art as soon as I can.  I will be around on the ArtSpacious discord server for the time being. If you are interested I left an 
invitation link on my last status post, on my profile.  

Stay safe and healthy, I love you all, Cyd :heart:

I've always fav'ed your work and it's always been an inspiration to me! I wish I had told you sooner how much your images have meant to me but I guess I waited too long! Depressing you not being here any longer! I've tried my best to make some that could equal yours but I doubt it will ever happen! Thanks for sharing yourself with us for so long! Your dearly missed!

Thank you for sharing this... I hope you'll return later, when both you and dA are hopefully in a better place <3

My understanding is that dA had to revamp the entire website because of the discontinuation of Flash at the end of 2020. It seems that they're continuously trying to improve the site, though I definitely miss the old layout/design and functionality =/

So sorry to hear you got laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope you're able to find help and support <3 It might be too late for me to offer help on my end, but please feel free to DM me if you'd like.

One will miss another, as we move on, down the path that is life, meeting friends, and saying goodbye to those we love and cherish, all the while continually traveling down our own path. We will always meet again, even if you don't know how, but that's the amazing mystery of life. While we sit inside, we can think about life, ponder on how its changed, and look forward to the future. Because no matter what happens, we will get through all this together, even if someone has to say goodbye, for what seems like forever. Lets make each other proud, lets make each other happy, and sad, and exicted, and angry. It happens. Life happens. But we still keep on going. And that's what matters. That we don't stop until our life is brought to a close at somepoint that is not by our own hand. Lets fight this worldwide struggle together, even though we're far apart. And always remember, never stop drawing.

Thank you so very much my friend! :hug:

I'll miss your art too. 

If DA works on all the kinks (not holding my breath) or Art Spacious works out, I hope to see you again.  And I won't be gone completely, just not very active.

Lovely colors and motion! You're right, very upbeat.

This is really bad timing on DA's part. The virus has everyone out of sorts to begin with and their insistence on pushing Eclipse is just going to make people that much more frustrated and less likely to cooperate.

Take good care of yourself Cyd. Thank you for all your lovely work and kind words. I'll come check things out on Art Spacious; who knows, I may go there too!

Thanks so much for your kind words Elizabeth, I hope it made you smile.    

Why DA insists on pushing a platform that isn't even complete on many of us who are home bound and nervous. Especially Americans who watching their country get torn apart, I'll never understand.  I think that's why so many people are so very angry.  They don't have the wisdom to step back for a few weeks, which is really sad.  

I don't go anywhere except grocery pickup because I am immune compromised and the virus could kill me (Last time I got the flu I was in the hospital for almost a week).  I'll still keep making fractals and I'm hoping Art Spacious works out, but I know it's going to take a while.  In the meantime, I'm going to concentrate on uploading art to Redbubble and Fine Art America.  I might even do some real painting again, since I have the time.  

 Please stay safe as well.  Maybe I'll see you around.  God Bless
