Goodbye Sky by Gameaddict1234 Goodbye Sky by Gameaddict1234
This is it. After so many years, SkydoesMinecraft finally announced that he's quitting Minecraft, and I guess I'll be quitting with him.
Unless something as big as this happens again, this is the last Minecraft related art I will ever draw.

I cannot thank this guy enough, if it wasn't for him my art would have never gotten this popular on DA, and I would've never realised my passion in animation. As cheesy or cringy as this might sound, I loved Minecraft. Sky was such an important factor to my childhood that I don't know what type of person I would be if I never discovered him.

Despite all that I'm really happy for him now that he's moving on. This doesn't mean his Youtube career is over though, he's starting a new channel here:
www.youtube.com/user/SkyDoesTh…
And I'm glad he's finally able to do something he actually loves doing.

 To be honest I'm gonna miss SkythekidRS (as in this character), and even though it's such a simple picture, I haven't poured this much feeling into an artwork for a long time.
Thank you for everything SkydoesMinecraft.

It is kind of sad but I'm really happy for Adam. I remember watching the first do not laugh he had ever done and it made me laugh so hard. But after a while it all kind of felt the same and repetitive and I stoped watching. I would check back and watch his older videos from time to time. But I'm so happy he gets to do something he's  passionate about.

As they say "Nothing built can last forever and every legend no matter how great fades with time." I actually stopped watching him and other MCYT'ers since then and started watching YouTubers like Kyutie and Starbotdubs but I guess I need to start watching some of his old videos again Q 3 Q

I got a little emotional after watching that video tbh which was odd for me, especially it being a youtuber. Although by now I'm not as into minecraft as I used to be back then, he was literally the first youtuber I watched back in 2013/14 and basically got me into youtube and just games in general a lot more than I was already over the years since then(also I started drawing a lot more since then so that helped, having something to draw that I enjoyed so I got that to thank him for too). I'm happy for him and I'm glad he's gotten himself to start doing more of what he really enjoys now :)

(also by now I've practically ditched da for tumblr but now and then I come back to look at art and I just wanna say I have always loved your art style and the glowy-ness of your coloring like jesus this just made some of the emotions come back xD)

That's the same case for me, when I started out on DeviantARt Minecraft was the only thing I drew for a while and it really helped me with developing a style and stuff.
But I'm glad he's moving on cause lately it doesn't seem like he enjoys making videos y'know?

It sucks to see Sky go. Been watching his stuff for years now. But I suppose this was going to happen eventually.

At least there's still some minecrafters left on YouTube for me to watch when I'm bored/in need of some creative inspiration/in need of a good laugh.

(picture a Minecraft banner behind my personification while I type this)
I'll be honest I stopped watching Sky after awile, but I'm glad he's doing something he likes.

also just because Sky quits then everyone gives up on Minecraft?
Sky may have brought us together under a Budder Flag, but does that mean we should just lose interest in a game that was good? NAY I say!, He may have united us under one fandom but there are other Minecraft Fandoms, who may or may not be better then Sky and his friends(or even his former friends cause honestly I stopped watching after Team Crafted broke up the first time)
But there just as good or alittle less. My point being that is if you love playing Minecraft then you shouldn't leave it because Sky quit, rather continue playing and spread the tales to the ones who grow up not knowing who Sky is.

Or if your really not satisfied with sitting on a computer playing minecraft with no attention then pick up the mantle of Youtube, Twitch, Uhh some others that are good too, and make your own legacy, then when you have fame then choose to quit you'll have a legacy.

My other point being don't let Sky leaving ruin the joy of playing minecraft if you really enjoy the game, or drawing art.

I've said my peace.

I guess I could have reworded myself a bit better, but I'm not leaving just because Sky quit
Technically I left a long time ago, but I get so emotionally attached to certain things (in this case, Minecraft) that I wasn't able to "let go" until now.
Don't get me wrong, Minecraft is still great, but I can't remember the last time I watched a Minecraft video or played Minecraft myself.
I was no longer contributing to anything Minecraft related, nor was I interested... when Sky said he was leaving I guess it inspired me, and made me realise that letting go is not a bad thing at all and I could be happy doing so.

People will miss his minecraft content, but at least he'll still be doing YouTube videos. I'm glad he's gonna be doing stuff that actually makes him happy.
