Like I said on my last channel, whether or not I leave DA for good or come back, KCH is probably going to be abandoned, however, there are three friends
and three artists
that I want to acknowledge in this final journal.
1. RUISUNIN WAS THERE SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING, HE WAS THERE WHEN I HAD NO WATCHERS (technically 1, but Masked-Dolls left DA soon after) AND IS SIMPLY JUST A GREAT ARTIST, FRIEND AND HUMAN BEING.
I had no idea that a Yoshi fandom existed, but I'm well aware of it now. I have literally known Ruisu all 3 years as KrimsonCapedHatter, and he continues to inspire me and others with his art. He is the best
traditional artist I know that isn't a professional, which is astounding given his age. I would not be artist nor man I am today without Ruisu.
Sometimes I wonder why humanity gave us DV/Kane. When you can master digital art, NSFW and SFW art, be bursting with personality, and rock a pair of glasses, I believe you have reached peak in human development. Aside from BrendanCorris, Dull is one of those top artist I feel that everyone should be aware of and his art style is recognizable automatically. His characters, especially the Ravencrofts are fun to see interact with each other, and he's an overall great dude and artist. Also, he likes Vinesauce and Samurai Jack. +5 extra thick points.
I still have no idea what that username means. Everyone should have a best bud, whether it be in person or over the web. Darkmist is mine you could say. Despite her age, Darkmist or Rachel... Rochelle is quite literally more mature and better at art than 50% of the users on this site. Even though I'm technically still a teen, Darkmist's meme-filled art takes me back to my Freshman year of high school, where memes reign king, Trump Steaks were no longer on the market, and life was good...which it still is. A lot of Darkmist's art comes off as fandom related but with genuine effort and a charming art style. I've only watched Supernatural once, but Darkmist's gallery and IG sometimes makes me feel as if I've seen the whole series. Also, "Irene" is probably in my top five for favorite OCs.
TheOneTrueDax is the most underrated artist I came across on this site
. I said it in my Deviant Questionnaire two years ago, I'll say it again. I absolutely adore David's original comic "Silverado the Flying Squirrel". I regret never reading all of it, but it is one of my favorite fan-comics, not just for the Sonic fandom, but all fandoms in general. He's been arounf for 12 years on this site, and I am his only watcher (not sure if anything happened in the years before meeting him so he may have had more). We all have lives to live but it's cool to see that TOTD is still log in on occasion.
5. This one is long so bewarned.
When I was young and stupid I made Sonic fandom related page over Facebook during my junior high years. It was originally a genuine page as I was very hype for the upcoming "Sonic Generations" at the time. Legs was also a SEGAnaut and fellow Sonic fan, but are relationship wasn't really an admirable one. We were like rivals a bit, her following grew to be massive over FB, mine slightly over her's on Flipnote Hatena (damn I'm old, haven't heard that in years). Eventually, with all my pre-teen angst, I'm pretty sure I did something or said something that screwed everything up and severed ties between us all together. We both eventually ended up deleting our pages (mine only last a year I think) and just moved on. UNTIL NOW. I think a year ago I "re-met" Legs over DA, since I'd knew she'd be there. Even though we've both have made up (she and I barely remember what happened), things have been swell. Her art slowly is renewing my interest in the Sonic franchise, and just like me being excited for Generations, I'm excited for Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania. Legs also inspired me to dabble in digital art, but I suck at it and can't use a mouse to save my life. It may be a stretch to say, but even though all the hardship, even though Darkmist and AlienOutsider are my uno amigos, Legs has "stood" the test of time. (GET IT CAUSE I'VE KNOWN HER FOR FIVE YEARS AND HER NICKNAME IS LEGS???111 HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA).
Thank you all for making my return to DA a great experience! I hope to come back again, again someday!
