Goodbye, Nostalgia Critic by BlueLineProductions Goodbye, Nostalgia Critic by BlueLineProductions
If you don't know who the Nostalgia Critic was, go here www.thatguywiththeglasses.com

Slightly over a week ago, the 4 years in running internet show, Nostalgia Critic, was brought to a close by its creator. Rarely do I ever get so attached to something, and I was greatly saddened to see if end. I knew of course that it couldn't last forever, and looking back, I could see the signs of the show starting to falter. Mostly it was the month of crossovers beforehand that was the real tip off.

Regardless, I wanted to contribute something to the legacy of the Nostalgia Critic, so I drew this. My original idea was just going to be a "handshake" piece, but I thought that that just wasn't grand enough for something that's been such a big part of my life for the past 4 years. I've been watching this show grow pretty much since the beginning, and never missed a week, even those two weeks when I was in Japan.

Doug Walker, you created something that has been an unparallelled source of entertainment for me, but I completely respect the reasoning for bringing the show to a close. I can only hope that all of your future projects meet the same level of success. Good Bye, Nostalgia Critic.

The reviews picked to be drawn for this were a select group of my favorite videos, but there were a lot of others I drew but didn't end up using because the piece was becoming too cluttered or I didn't feel they were good enough in the end. They can be found here [link] and here [link]

I know. But I made this when he left and I don't feel like taking it down now. But yes it's dated.

Did any one else cry when they found out? Or was it just me?

I too am saddened that NC is coming to an end. I knew it was going to happen somewhere down the line but I didn't think it was going to be now, or time just flies by when you're having fun. After the Scooby Doo review, I had a feeling that it was going to be the last one, I mean it just ended seamlessly. However, I hope that his other series is just as good and offers new people to the site and allows for different ideas. Then again, pretty much anything Doug makes is guaranteed to be a success. Anyways, good job on the picture and I think that it gave a proper representation of Doug and all of his years of dedication. c:
