Thought I'd never outgrow this place, but that seems to be the case now. There's generally nothing here for me now. The only friends I could say I had here were MrGimp and Flashthehedgehog whose account is gone now, she was enlightened a lot early than I and Gimp. Of course Gimp left too, I don't blame him. He was a great guy, and a fun artist; FAC wasn't the place for him. Without them here though, I don't have no reason to stay.
Other people I have met through this site, I wish you all luck in your lives. Frankyboy, someone I neglected to be a real friend to, got the real picture of how people behave on this site. That's why he's gone and it's a damn good reason. kittyshootingstar was what I believe to be a true artist. She drew as much as she could despite knowing she had limitations and accepted criticism on a mature level. There's over three hundred pictures in her gallery, and unlike a certain Falconlobo, her art showed how much she progressed. She left as well, which isn’t too much of a surprise considering how sensible she was. Scratchthefox, she found artistic freedom somewhere else too. I didn't know her well like I wish I did, but she was a good person as well. I mention these people because I respected them and still do. They deserve it after all.
All I have now to say are the disappointments I've had with this site. There are a lot of whiny, entitled children here that seriously need a reality check. Some months ago I probably wouldn't be saying this because I believed she was just playing around, being a normal teenager, but TheGameArtCritic is one of those kids. Maybe it was her okay art that kept me from talking. Maybe her silly, engaging comments. But after leaving for damn near a year only to find that a person you once called a friend has not improved themselves or their talents in the least bit and clings to a video game character like they were a living, breathing being, all I can say is that this person is not healthy and needs some help. Psychological help, not comments on how breath-taking their emo furry art is. I've only recently learned that people in real life can be bigoted assholes, but I never thought someone that I used to like would turn out to be one. Critic, or slave to Critic who was directed here, if you're reading this, you all need to get off the internet and pursue an art form that is not anime/sonic. You can make a living with art, just not with art that is copyrighted by someone else. You can make comic books and manga and be professional, but you also need a life to do that and the web is sucking that life up. And it's OKAY to like other things that are not Sonic. Nintendo is not the devil nor is any other video game company. They all just happen to stick with a rigid format and make success off of that; some people just don’t like change and will buy things that stay true to that. I know you've seen the Sonic 4 and Sonic Colors trailers. You probably have doodles for both of them just waiting to be scanned and uploaded. Just please stop being so biased about you're precious idol. It's okay to like Sega, but it's not okay to judge people who think differently than you. I still like Sega and I like how they try to be different when it comes to their games, but it's very easy to go over the edge when trying to gain an audience for a new game with completely new game play. Werehog is not for everyone despite what the ERSB says. I'm not judging you just to let you know, because I know you're thinking that right now. I'm trying to get through that hard-headed skull you grew while you've been on FAC. You were such a nice girl in the beginning and now you're on FAC's page for Encyclopedia Dramatica. What the hell happened to you Critic?
Anyway, this is it for me. I'm deleting all my art because I'm paranoid someone else wants to trace it and get popular with it. Ha, of all the memories I could leave this place with, it's a memory of the popularity contests here. If you didn't draw something that wasn't from Japan, you could just walk out the door because FAC is about fan art. frack original content! Fan art is in the site's title dammit; who would have thought everyone here wants to see FAN ART! Now I'm ranting and that's no good. So I'll just leave this here and hope people get a clue.
