I don't want to drag this out, or you will get bored and stop reading, so I will get right to it. My name is Joshua David Taylor, and I go by the DA alias "MidnightKyon" In life, I am nearly twenty years old, and in college. I still love Sonic the Hedgehog with every fiber of my being, and that will never change. I am sadly leaving this wonderful community because I never had Internet at home, and here in college, I never get the time to work on my much loved artistic hobby. I really, really, really, REALLY wanted to have a wide range of friends, and I wanted to connect with them, and share artistic experiences with them. Sadly, I know now that simply was never meant to be. I can't upload art on a regular basis, which is by far, the biggest factor in gaining DA popularity, and my work has since then become unnoticed. People that I once called friend no longer display an interest in me. I don't blame them at all, they have every right to stop having an interest in someone who is not around.
Still, it hurts.
And I have HUNDREDS of Watch messages that I want to go over. I wanted to be a loyal and kind Watcher, and give my honest and nicest feedback possible to those I admired. But I see that that is also impossible. There is just so much, and I cannot comment and favorite everything.
I have failed as a DeviantArt artist, and as a Watcher. I believe I failed as a friend to many. And so, I will leave. My page and all of my art will remain here.
Will I ever come back? Maybe. I might make a new profile, and put all of my art there. If I do, I will let you know. That may be a few years from now, when I get stable.
In my time here, I earned a total of 175 beautiful, amazing, kind Watchers. You all will never begin to understand the appreciation and love I hold for each and every single one of you. Your appreciation of my work was what kept me going so long here. I adore you guys and gals, so very much.
I ended up Watching 244 miraculous people, who helped to shape me into the artist I am today. I hope you all realize just how near to my heart I kept you, and how much I truly loved your work.
Out of these, there were those who truly shined. These ladies and gentlemen etched themselves into the deepest parts of my heart, where they will forever remain.
THE PEOPLE WHO CARED:
You all gave me more than I ever deserved, and I could never pay back all of the kindness you've offered me. I only regret that I was never around enough to nurture our friendship into a truly meaningful bond. I wish you all the very best of luck in your artistic journey, I know your future is bright!!
