Man :/
I wouldn't be surprised if we got a lot less items in RIGS now with so many artists going away.
I'm not even really sure how many of the current artists that are left still do RIG items.
Ugh.
OH HELL NO NOT BARA-CHAN.

What the living ********. This is the lamest...I was hoping bara-chan would not be on the chopping block but gaaah. I can't believe it. Lemme drown in a pool of tears please. Ugh vomiting over here. emotion_puke I was hoping the sudden influx of tumblr posts meant nothing was amiss but maybe it was. ; _ ;

This kind of sucks how everyone's contracts are expiring and they just all happen to be the best artists on the site. (Totally my first time seeing gunmetalrose's art--it's nice).

Also: Good luck to all you wonderful lovely people!! (not that y'all will need it)

Goddammit Gaia! Stop getting rid of all my favorite artists! First PRISM (which I STILL think was a blow you couldn't afford) and now Zimmay??
Really Gaia?

I'm wondering what the reasoning behind letting so many artists go is?

Is there some sort of future restructuring we don't know about happening?

With so many artists leaving Gaia I'm kind
of getting worried about item quality now. : /

Also with so much people leaving Gaia, I'm
a might worried for their productivity or if
Gaia might go by the way of TinierMe.

I sure hope not though.

I don't understand this new CEO.
Gaia can't go back to having a puddle of artists working on this site. The purpose of increasing the art group was to 1) alleviate the workload 2) give more variety 3) and to complete an event with Developers in a shorter amount of time.

This is getting stupid.

I think i might understand some of it.

the CEO wants to re-focus on gaia online from what i understand. so now that artists are being brought back to Gaia Online projects instead of having them work on other unknown/less successful projects, Gaia Interactive probably doesn't need that many artists as it used to?

e.g. we'll be getting Ethe and Fayren REIs instead of [insert name of contract artist here] REIs, now that Ethe and Fayren are probably back to being assigned to making Gaia Online items in some of their tasks. That is, Gaia no longer needs X other artists in the company since in-house artists like Ethe and Fayren are being re-assigned to help make pixel items.



I would sink 1000 ships for more Fayren items, at least her items look different



also I have no idea who gunmetalrose is

she will be missed for the 45 seconds I knew she existed


Apparently she was responsible for Ezo Ezo Okami and
a fewer lesser known RIG items.

Here's their item list if you're curious xd

I was surprised to find that I really liked a lot of her items... the backgrounds were particularly awesome

Artists, though. And now?

Why not other staff? Or are artists the most expendable?

Can they really afford to lose any more normal staff?
There's still a bunch more artists left, after all.

That's a good point.

And for all we know, they may have let other regular staff go too, ones that don't necessarily have accounts or appear so visible on Gaia.

Even if not, I do understand why artists are more easily let go.

It's a true shame when someone loses their job. Especially in an artistic field because jobs are quite competitive and hard to come by. Though they're all talented.

Wish them well!
