I just learned early this morning that a good friend, and a long time commissioner Cobalt, Koobikitsune... Justin, passed away not too long ago

Cobalt helped me out in a lot of tough times, giving me commissions when I needed them most or wanting to expand on ideas I had presented before.

He paid for probably the comic I am most known for, seeing as I am still asked about it every other week, First Times and Tan Lines. Sadly that never got finished, I got tired of it and also felt it wasn't turning out very well, and he understood, didn't send the final payment for the rest of the pages... I wish I had finished it now that hes gone.

He always got big commissions, whether very big comics, multiple images for a story, animations, or just lots of characters interacting. Always because he wanted to help other artists out in the end, I know a lot of artists that knew him as well and they always said great things about him.

Cobalt was even responsible for the recent Spike mouse pad, it was his suggestion for having a butt hole visible, and that turned out to be the best seller and most requested. Sadly, I don't think it got to him in time. He probably never even got to hold it. A lot of my great ideas and popular content is thanks to him, and it made me very sad I'll never get to properly thank him.

Personally, he confided in me a lot early on. He's probably in a better place now, though I hope he knows that a lot of people will miss him, and wish he was still here.

Rest in Peace Justin, goodbye my friend.

if it's not too insensitive; may I asked what happened to cause his death?

I'm not sure if it's true, but I saw one person mention that he had gone silent for a few months because of falling to a coma, where he eventually died. This makes it really hard to confirm because I don't know if anyone in his family or friends that would be physically present at a hospital with him would even know he has an Inkbunny account to say what had happened in detail.

Thats always made me personally worried caus eif anything happened to me, no one of my family would know to notify my friends online.

do you know what he looks like? I found a obituary but I don't know the guy beyond seeing his character.
Is this him?

I don't believe that's him, he lived him Massachusetts.

That is not him.

Is it rude to try and find out the information in order to provide the community with better understanding or is that creepy? I'm uncertain but don't wish to cross that line.

I think its more respectful to just let it be

Oh God... I'm so sorry for the loss. I didn't know him all that well, but he sounded like a cool dude. Wherever he is now, I'm sure he's happy knowing that you considered him a friend and partner. You have my deepest condolences.

RIP CobaltTheUnicorn/Koobikitsune AKA Justin.

He was a great person, and the world is going to be a worse off place without him. I've known him for the better part of a decade now, and like alot of you, he helped me through alot. If any of you know him and his characters, i'm the person behind Serenity, and being part of a family with him is a memory I won't ever forget.

I would like to say something profound or even relevant to the deceased. But I can't. I did not know him, nor are there any words that magically wipe away the sadness and depression of death. Only time can do that. The only thing I can say with 100% certainty is that, whatever ailed him, whatever pains both mental and physical are gone. He suffers no more. I hope you can take what little solace there is to be had in that.

My apologies for your lost man, he must've been a really kind person, wish I get to know him better and learn to be kind like he was, stay strong man I believe he'll look after you in the afterlife.

Oh man. That hits hard. He and I never talked much, but the few times we did were pretty cool. The commissions he got were always fun and entertaining. This is just. . .  Damn. Last few months have taken too many good people from us.
