I have thought about this over the last month, and have come to the decision that its time to shut down my account and say goodbye. Although I have made many friends here, and have enjoyed creating the work that I have posted on here, I will have to leave here due to a few things in my life that are keeping me from posting things here anymore.
For one, Real Life is taking up more of my time. I have a side career that I've been working on, and things in that area have gotten huge and are taking up more and more of my spare time, so that time I would have spent rendering some fun artwork, is now spent on that other career. That's great for me but sucks for my DeviantArt Account.
For another, there is a problem with what I do and the work I have posted here. Recently I see more and more about people's private lives posted online and in the news, with stuff being presented sometimes with good reason like the story of Canadian Celebrity Jian Gomeshi here who was recently arrested and charged with sexual assault for his behaviour with several women over the last few years. In his case it's most likely deserved, but there are other people's lives that are being exposed and posted and people just don't understand our culture and our fetishes, and its better if I close this now and not bother posting anymore.
So what I will do is leave this account open until January (most likely the 1st I will close things down, but if things get busy sometime after that) so that if there are any renders you would like to keep you can download them now until then.
Due to the upcoming high volume of favourites and activities that will be coming I will be doing something I normally don't do. I will not be thanking people for faving or downloading my stuff. I will answer any comments or replies that come my way though, until the account is closed down.
As well, I still have everything I've rendered safe at home, so if I do find it possible to return here I will be able to repost it.
Thanks for being great people.
