Dear all,

Thank you for the past 4 years on this website. I've had fun for some time and the interactions were enjoyable. I've met some great people and I hate leaving and possibly losing contact with those people, but this is a necessary thing for me. 

For months, I've been trying to get back on here and getting the ball moving again, but nothing worked. I would go quiet and then try to come up with some plan to make things around my account active again. It's just a large lack of passion. I no longer feel anything when I log on and I get quite disappointed when I open my inbox to see a number of favorites from one person on work I did years ago.

The amount of interactions I have with others has also decreased. The only time I really speak to someone is when they're angry with me. Who wants to only deal with angry people? Especially when they're angry over something as stupid as having different ideas than me? 

This site is just not for me anymore. We all outgrow things in life, whether it's a friendship or a favorite show, and this is it for me. It's just not interesting to me anymore. I don't look at any art outside of my inbox and whenever I do look outside my inbox, I just glaze over the art. I don't look at it. I don't appreciate it. 

I've spoken about my departure for weeks. I made it public a while and explained what I was doing. The initial plan was to simply close my account and walk away. That was my plan for the longest time. Then 2-3 days ago, I decided and announced that my account will stay, but I would store everything and leave. 

Of course, when I began to take action in my departure, the angry people returned and acted surprised, despite me writing journals about it for weeks. No one has any excuse to be angry with me. I've stated I'm leaving 3-4 times before. To those who say that I should've warned people: I did. For those who said this is unexpected: it isn't. I did my part in this. It shouldn't be my concern as to whether or not you did your part in listening. 

It's fine though. I decided to give the angry people what they wanted. I unstored most of my gallery. I even came to realization that storing it wasn't a good idea as well in terms of art theft and etc. 

That is all. I wish everyone the best in their endeavors. I didn't want people following me, but I think it would be best to give people the option to contact me if they want. There are a few links and contact info here:

Thank you and good bye!

It's been a few years since you left and you'll probably never read this, but I was just laying in my room trying to fall asleep when I randomly thought about you and your work.
I sincerely hope all is well with you and that you're in a better place after leaving. Your characters were a lot of fun and I hope they're still dear to you even if you don't draw them anymore.
Good luck in your life and whatever you may do in the future. ^^

It took a small amount of time, but here I am! I do come back on occasionally when I need to access my favorites if I'm in need of design ideas or inspiration.
Thank you so much for your support and I'm glad I intrigued at least one person with my stories and characters. My characters will always be with me- They are a part of me. It's through them that I can inspire myself and I hope that they and their stories can inspire others as well. Though I don't draw as much as I used to due to my life becoming as hectic as it is currently, it's rare for me to not think about them.
I am actually happier that I'm no longer active on here. I was in a terrible place in my life and I became very egotistical and worried so much about numbers that I lost sight of myself and what I wanted to do. I ended up over-exhausting myself that I could never get any of my projects done. I would start drama and fights out of no where and painted a bad image of myself. It was simply a bad time and place for the kind of head space I had then. However, I'm doing much better now in my personal life. I'm constantly exploring things about myself and opening myself up more. Should I ever come back... Well, that's something I don't have a response to right now. But, it certainly won't be under this account.
Currently, I am trying to work on a major project that involves most of the characters I've created and more in the bits and pieces of time I could find. Things are coming along slowly, but I'm taking the time to figure out what I really want out of it. Now, I post on Instagram, my user being juliansparkz, in case you'd like to continue to view my art and characters.

Thank you so much for reaching out to me! I think it was truly a sign that I read this when I did. Feel free to reach out whenever you'd like.
Good luck to you too! I briefly checked out your work and it looks like you have a great story that's ready to be told!

I'm glad to hear that you're still working on your projects!
It's always best to leave when you're in an environment that's negatively affecting your mental health and I'm happy to hear you're doing better ^^
I did follow your Insta but on the chance that you do decide to make a new account, I'll definitely be watching you again.
Thanks for checking my work too, greatly appreciated!

Okay, you have moved on, but why delete your arts?
At least you could have warned, that way many people would just download for their private collections...

It's.... sad that way. And dissapointing. :/
