Selcouth is retiring :( (And a few other staff changes)

Postby Tess » Wed Jan 09, 2013 2:22 pm

Many of you will know of Selcouth, who has been an official artist for CS since 2008!

Selcouth is a very talented artist with a unique art style which makes his art easily recognizable around the site. I'm sure nearly ever user reading this will have at least 1 pet or item that was made by Selcouth.

Unfortunately, Selcouth is retiring this month, but he's left us with an incredible set of items which are coming to the store today. There are also several other unreleased items from Selcouth which will be coming out later in the year :) We hope that he'll find some time to visit us as a guest artist in the future!

Let's all show our appreciation for the contributions Selcouth has made for us over the years and wish him luck with his future as a professional graphic artist :clap:

We also have a couple of other updates to the team: WildDragonfly has retired from the General Helpers after many years of providing friendly help for her fellow CS users. And Coalchaser has rejoined the Moderators after a period of absence :)

Someone is calling,
I'm being called
Alright, leave it to me; let’s go
More! More!

To the east and to the west
I’ll keep running
That’s right, if fighting is your only option
Then that’s what you’ll have to do
The awesome me's the most supreme! The strongest!
The one who gets the last laugh, yeah!
Is the awesome me, of course!
Draw a circle, it's the earth
Draw a circle, it's the earth
Everybody follow with me,
It's the awesome me!

Draw a circle, little bird
When did it get there, little bird
Chirping on my head,
It's cute!

I draw the earth
The awesome! Me!
Whether you're sure or not,
I'm Prussia!

    Selcouth:

    I've never spoken to you, but back when I was newer I saw many of your posts to the CS GSA which I found inspirational -I started poking around on these threads soon after- that I doubt I'll ever forget. ^^ Surprisingly, this actually played a role in finally getting over my typical teenage gender identity crisis, and I thank you for that.

    Otherwise, your pets and items were beautiful, and I can only hope you'll come back as a guest artist. c: You're incredibly talented and I wish you good luck in whatever you're doing. ^^

    Also, your store items today are beautiful! <3
    RPGing is my life since I discovered Final Fantasy, I shall with time get every item released today.

Selcouth used to be Hoshiko, right? Oh goodness, I feel old now for remembering when he became an artist XD and a professional graphic artist? O.O good luck!

Selcouth and WildDragonfly, Thank you for everything you contributed to CS!

And welcome back Coalchaser!

edit: either I misread something or the post got edited after I posted xD edited to fix mistakes

Click for CS tips and tricks, including how to display a pet without items and how to select batches of pets at once!

Context, consistency, and clear antecedents are golden.

I often use my phone |||| Timezone: EDT (CS Time -4) |||| Busy until at least June 2016

Do you have a pet dated December 18, any year, or December 24, 2011? Go check the archives; it may be more valuable than you thought! (keyword: rerelease)
