It's been a while since we posted a journal update. Well, how is everyone?
We have some news and updates. As the title suggests, we will be closing the submissions indefinitely.
We wish to thank you for 6 amazing years of an adventurous and artistic ride, joining our projects and motivating us to continue making fun new stuff for you which included a little bit of everything for those who were more on the artistic side and even for those who were just here to raid some tombs!
And wow, we recently passed the 5000 members count. That's an enormous group of people to take care of
We hope you won't be sad and will understand our decision.
As it tends to happen, life often pushes you into several directions and brings new adventures for you, which in our case, pulled us away from the projects that were planned to continue to run the group. Many of you joined over the years and may have missed our start out and intro, where we explained to people we specifically opened the group to bring people something new and have fun with them, and not just be another art group. We tried our best with news updates, contests, fun polls, prize raffles and Challenge games, which must have been our favorite! It recently became clear that the hiatus had taken too long and we obviously weren't going back on track so it would be best for us to stop running the group as it no longer serves its initial purpose. We stopped being a team and it's just not fun running a project which was a collaboration for so long.
Another contributing factor is that DeviantArt is not what it used to be as a community. We opened up back when people came here specifically to hang out with people of similar interests, join projects, do and talk art and just have their own little special place. DeviantArt became an art dump more than a community, while people took their fun bubble elsewhere.
For those of you who love checking back here to keep submitting their art, that’s still fantastic and don’t worry, there are a number of amazing groups left on DeviantArt where you can do that
We won’t be closing our group though, as we’d like to keep it as a nice memory of the fun we had with you guys. It will be amazing to revisit the galleries and see so many talented artists connected in one place, pouring their heart and soul into the fandom
If you ever feel nostalgic, you know where to rummage the archives of Tomb Raider goodies! Our Super group subscription doesn’t run out til Jan 2018, so if you have any suggestions on how to put it to good use, fire away!
Thanks again guys, you were part of the life-altering experience for us as artists and fans
We wish you the happiest of raiding, and onto the new adventures!
