A Soft Farewell...



Goodbye to a World

Hello, and thank you for stopping by! Unfortunately, The-Golden-Butterfly is on an indefinite hiatus and will never return. Do not fret though! The group has been made into an archive. You are free to remove your art or writings as you wish. You are also free to keep or remove your apps from this archive. Understand some things are unfortunately missing- you may come across some dead links. What is gone is not forgotten though, and what individuals choose to leave behind shall forever remain here.

We would like to thank every member and admin (current or previous) who made The-Golden-Butterfly into the wonderful place it used to be. Thank you for your service and what you did to make this community great. We thank every person who contributed to this group, no matter who you are or were or what place you held in the group. We would like this place to be remembered for what it inspired in so many- a child like wonder, a rich nostalgia, and endless creativity.

We are sorry for what happened here. We sincerely apologize to those this group has hurt. For what it is worth, for every bad thing someone has done in TGB or to TGB know that we forgive you- and in time, we hope you can forgive us.

It is from this experience we hope to learn and improve upon the group's ideas, ourselves, and the community it so inspired. From the ashes of TGB we have built a new group. A group that strives and will try to do right by everyone. The story of TGB may be over here in this place but the story has not concluded! If you wish to continue the story TGB left off on, you may visit our sister group, Havensake. We wish you a great day, and we hope we get to see you there!

- The (former) TGB Admin Team

What happened here exactly? If someone could note me about it it’d be cool. It just seems so odd that TGB is gone after how massive it was in the cat artist community.

Hey kids! I’m back and I’ve gotten myself a new sketchbook and have to stretch out those drawing muscles because I haven’t done it in a while!!

So if anyone has a character they’d like a headshot of, or maybe even a scene that you’d like roughly sketched out, hit me up! Just send me the link to the ref sheet and/or a description of a scene and I’ll probably sketch it in my off time.

also open to character asks for Hayden, Spyridon and Cicero(Wren)

I haven't been here in a while, but it looks like the group has really changed in that time. It's quite sad to see such respected and long standing members leave, but eventually we all do have to go our ways. If a new group is one the horizon though, that's really exciting! I looked back at this yesterday and kind of missed being here and seeing all the talented people. Good luck to the new group and to the members in it and this one!
I'll go on the bandwagon with Dovesplash and tag some people that inspired me a lot in this group, and made it amazing to be in. Cooper and Vivien say hi to all of you!

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to publicly say goodbye to the group and everyone here; after 7 years it has come my time to leave TGB for exclusively intrinsic reasons </3 

As for Cadence, all of her close friends have gone on before her and she is no longer attached to Nandryx. With this in her heart, Cadence is able to pass peacefully in her sleep by walking from her dreams into Eden.  Her body remains behind but her spirit has moved on. 

Shout out to those who made my time in TGB really awesome and special, just tagging a few of you to say thanks!

Thanks so much everyone for the good time!

Hey, what happened here? I remember watching this group a while back with a character in mind, but it seems a lot of things changed since then.

No big deal. It's just a plain canvas we could write over eventually. Patience and creativity is key - so I'll help out as much as possible!
