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 :)
I chose my avatar from the free ones shared in the new Avatars board in the oekaki... :) thanks CS artists!

    I'll miss WildDragonfly - she introduced me to this site.

    Selcouth was so talented and I will definitely miss her!

note; I've recently been diagnosed with really social anxiety and my parents believe that the best way to deal with it is to limit time spent on my computer. I'll try to be on as much as possible but I'm not sure how often because of this.

    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

    Hey!
To display a pet without items, add &noitems=1 right before the .jpg in the image URL.

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

To select batches of pets at once, click one check box, then hold the shift key while you click another checkbox. All of the pets between those two will be selected.
