It seems it's time to say goodbye...

Hello, Deviants, it's good old Kalma here for (most surely) the last time.

During the last 5 years (6 if you count the year I spent almost inactive) I've met a lot of people here. We've laughed together, we've been random and crazy together, we've shared this beautiful feeling of belonging to the big happy - and sometimes frustrating - family of artists that DA is.

However, when I began here I was, if I am not mistaken, 14 years old. I am now 21, and my life and interests are not quite the same.

I remember how happy I was to finally find equals here that truly liked my  - crappy, let's admit it - art, and enjoyed my comics and stories. Ah! How I enjoyed the Sonic fandom, and drawing my OC Kalma! I had Team Rush for a while, got my heart broken, made a very good Kiwi friend - ;D - and met a lot of interesting people. The Knouge club was a success, and My Friends Next Door, the Sonic Comic, was even known through the fandom, which is an honor! And you actually read my fanfics, which is really cool! Even when I changed fandom to Flapjack, some of you were still by my side.

I don't really like the idea of leaving all of this behind, but life goes on, and I'm spending my time on some other things. I am about to finish my English Literature degree at University, and learning Italian. I have the most wonderful, beautiful, supporting girlfriend I could have ever dreamt of. I have other hobbies rather than drawing. So, as I understood I was not going to come back, I decided to leave.

Why did I clean my gallery? Well, I do not want people to think I'm active, and I did never like most of my pictures. I will reupload them to Tumblr, though. I'll leave a link below whenever I do it.

I will also leave my Twitter in case you want to talk to me : )

So, hey! It was nice to have you, and as clichè as it may sound, you'll always have a place in my mind and in my heart. You were really important to understand many things about life, like choosing my fights, or the importance of having someone by your side.

Thank you, my friends.

Take care and good luck.

a) Will you finish...?
I don't know, sorry, I am not really interested in drawing/writing anything I left undone at the moment.

b) Can we still get in touch with you?
Yes, through my Twitter account (listed above) or maybe by leaving a message here - I may answer if I come back sometime.

c) Nananananananana?

Oh, the same has happened here. I just happened to stop by this evening and saw this. I wish you the best of luck. You sound like your intentions are well-made, you know who you are and where you're headed. Just wanted to let you know you'll always have a place in my (and everyone else's) heart(s). :love: Sending you my love~~
