Yep, this is it. This is going to be my last journal post here on DA.
This has been a great community, and I have enjoyed the many hours I used to spend just browsing and admiring others' works, but, unfortunately, I just don't stop by anymore. In fact, this is the first time I have visited the site in probably 2 years. The truth is, I just don't draw anymore - maybe it's a lack of time or motivation, but I truly believe I don't have the passion to pick up a pencil anymore. I have tried in the last few years, but I never get anywhere.
I stopped drawing back in 2008, after my dad suddenly passed away, and haven't done anything major since then, with the exception of finishing up a few colorings for some drawings. However, I have started practicing with photography, and I've been really interested in that for the last year and a half. I'm still an amateur with the camera, but I'm working to improve myself. By no means will I ever be professional with a camera, but I soon hope to take photographs that I can personally find pleasing.
So, as I am switching from one art field to another, I thought I would take the time to post that I will no longer upload any new drawings, with the except of the one I am uploading today. I'm out of touch with the art world, and feel I no longer deserve to be here at Deviant Art, as this is a great community, and I have nothing to contribute anymore. And by no means is this a pity trip, as my life has been going very well for the past couple of years - I just feel that I should move out of the way to allow much younger, and more talented artists to join this community.
So, I decided to start a new website last year where I upload my photographs. I don't have a whole lot yet, as I am extremely busy nowadays, but I plan to shoot like crazy over summer. Also, over the next few days, I will be uploading select drawings that I have here on this website onto my website, as my concentration will be on that website, instead of here. Below is the link to my website:

This is just something I decided to do, as I do not have the time to really participate in any communities anymore. So with that, I tip my hat to DA and the DA communities, and hang it up for good.
Again, thanks for the fun times!!
