So yeah, if you haven't guessed from the title of this journal, I'm going to be off dA for some time, but I will be back.
Reason being, is that in the early hours of Wednesday morning, a really close friend of mine took his own life. It was a shock to me, and the rest of his friends and family, and it's obviously going to take a while for me to be myself again.
Nicky was like a brother to me. We were so close, that it was strange for us not to be together on a weekend. Every word that came out of his mouth would either make me grin like an idiot, or laugh uncontrollably until I cried. He will be greatly missed, and I will always love him from the bottom of my heart.
But the main reason I'm going away for a while, is because I've got a massive project to do, for him and his close friends and family.
It's going to be a massive digital piece featuring all of his favourite video game series/characters. And there is a lot. Once this is complete, it's going to be printed out on a large canvas, and given to his parents as a tribute from myself.
So until this piece is complete, and it will be a long time until it is, I will not be doing any other artwork, nor will I be visiting dA, as I will simply not have the time to do anything else. Of course, once it is done, I will upload it on here to show you guys.
I hope you guys respect the reasons behind my absence, as this is a very difficult time for myself, and Nicky's close family and friends.
Thanks for your consideration.
Until next time.
Lot's of love, Emi.
