I'd say please leave a message after the tone but... I'd never reply!

The time has come for Gen to move on. I've been working on setting up a new gallery for non-sonic art, because I will no longer be focusing my attention on... well, sonic art.

So, I suppose this is a small good-bye! I don't want it to be a bitter parting but I'm just pretty well fed up with this account and how bothersome it is to me. I'll be able to log in and keep an eye for spam or "THIS PERSON STOLE YOUR ART" type stuff, but past that I can't guarantee I'll be around.

Thank you to everyone who kept me going as long as I did, you're all so wonderful and I appreciate it a lot! For all the comments, views, favourites and advice I am most grateful even if sometimes I didn't seem it.

Now quickly for an UPSIDE!! I'm opening a new gallery on DA so I can post different art and express myself, without the pressure of appealing to a fan-base. I'll link it in a new journal later, because as you might understand... I don't want 1000 screaming sonic-fans posting "can you draw my character?" on my new front page, before I've filled it with some art that defines the gallery as NOT A SONIC GALLERY. ^_~

Back soon to do as promised!

I'm sure there will be some goofs out there that will be all "OH NOES", but I can understand and sympathize with your wish to move on. You've been exploring Sonic for years now. I think it's healthy for you to stray away to something else. Perhaps more interesting, too.

All depends on you. But if this makes you happier, I seriously don't see why not. It's your choice of what you draw anyway. You shouldn't be harassed otherwise.

good for you, you should make art because you enjoy it, not because people tell you too. it reminds me of a poem I wrote, which my friend liked so much I submitted it.

I think this is the best thing to do, as good as your sonic art is, it's such a niché that it doesn't really show off your full potential.

i cant wait to see your new account! what i can honestly admit about being jealous about your art i, how you could make such awesome looking characters with the simplest of designs. I have to agree with Taeyu, your clothing designs were fabulous too!. good luck hope you dont get much spam from dissapointed sonic fanatics!.

I think that it's good that you are moving away from Sonic styled art. I, myself, would like to see some of your new artwork. ^_^ I'll probably watch you on your new account, if you don't mind (when you mention it in a future journal).

Plus I also think that it's good because you're getting away from those under-aged Sonic fantards. XDD

Well, you had a long and good run as a Sonic artist and your Sonic art will always be remembered. I wanna say thanks for being good enough to do those trades we did and good luck in your other ventures into different forms of art. No matter what, you'll have friends in no matter what you do. Like me ^_^ :hug:

Good for you. I bet you have some good works lined up. Having a separate account will probably let you play about a bit and have some fun without having to appeal to a fanbase like you said. Well i wish you good luck hope you post the new link soon so i can watch laters.

Well then, I can understand that. Your Sonic art is good indeed, but you know more than anyone that you can do much more than that.

Do what you think is right, and show us just what you can do. I know things will turn out great with your new account.

One of the things I loved so much about your sonic chars was the outfit designs, so if you ever do any stuff that involves outfit designing in your non-sonic gallery then I look forward to seeing it. :] Good luck with drawing different things, can't wait to see them.

I'm sorta curious, one of my favorite things about your art are the awesome outfit designs you come up with. Are you still going to be doing that sort of thing with your non-Sonic art, or does that really require the sort of big-headed rubber-hose and peanut body type of Sonic-style characters?

Anyway you do it, I look forward to seeing your new stuff. ^.^

I hate it when people put expectations on you... pretty much what happened to alvin-earthworm... except the difference he came back (Thank god).
I have my own work (horrible, as it may be) but I choose not to post it for said reasons, but I still get rants regardless (WTF is up with that!?!)

but Im just going on about myself now, my point IS if they follow you, ignore them, set your point across and do things how ever the hell you want them to be done.
WeeGee OUT.

I agree with you Gen, Sure it's cool drawing sonic characters but still it gets boring after a while!! I myself was a fan of Sonic stuff but one day i just got bored and moved on to another kind of things. Hoping I'll see your new Art soon. Originiality is the goal to success and i know you have what it takesto reach your own goal.

Well whatever you do I am sure most will support it, as such you are really broadening your horizons and getting away from the pressure of drawing what others want, drawing has to do with yourself and expressing yourself and a community site like this can get heavy with criticism or people just saying, automatically without warning, "Can you draw me this?" and so on, and it can make someone not like what they do, but still, whatever art you draw you are expressing yourself in your style and I am sure you will do just as well, the crying fans can get over themselves, because your art is yours none other, I wish you the best of luck with your new gallery and I hope it doesnt get spammed with "will you draw me this. . ." kind of stuff ^^'
Happy new year, I guess this is a resolution and moving on point for you, so that is good =)
