I started drawing this at church this morning, I finished it at my uncles birthday party. I was trying to make it look more... Evil.. Because all my dragons look pretty and elegant. So I want to incorporate evil dragons into my art as well.
My extended family members thought it was cool, but they also found it weird that "my dad lets me draw dragons when the only thing that is called a dragon is Satan". They also thought it was weird that my dad is encouraging that I draw evil looking dragons.
My extended family has small fights over things, like what is true and what is not, mainly because some of them don't remember things well and don't translate things well, a lot of the time it's funny, like my Nana thinks penguins have fur. But I get very stressed and angry when people yell, argue, talk loudly, when there are a bunch of people around.... So that kind of helped add genuine anger to the picture . I didn't get too angry tonight though, maybe it was because I was to distracted with having bought my cousins iPod? (I've been wanting an iPod for quite a while and he gave me a good deal)
I, personally love this one, i suppose its human nature to call anything powerful and not so elegant evil. I love this one, shows a lot of style and emotion. Even as a kid my family was "concerned" I was into dragons and skulls and such, when all I saw them as was either cool or powerful, not negative.
I totally sympathize with the way you react to people who are in a large group yelling. I find it next to impossible to draw like that and my brother and his... freind with benefits do that a LOT.
you said about getting lost in translation, what language do they speak?
Why thanks, I knew that you liked the picture I drew of Derek that was shaded similarly to this one, and it was fun to draw so I tried it again.
My dad wants me to draw dragons more menacing, he said that the only person who is called a dragon is satan and he isn't nice.
My dad was concerned I was going to become goth a few months ago, I told him I wasn't, but really I didn't know. And who knows what people say behind my back? I don't like evil, I just think skulls and dragons look cool.
Unfortunately my sister is the loudest person I know. Everything she does is loud, whenever things get quiet she starts making random noises while singing or plays some sort of dub-step music on almost full blast. Which bothers me so much, I am constantly telling her to quiet down. My Nana is the second loudest and then my aunt. My cousin realizes that I don't loud things so when he drives me somewhere he always turns down the bass and asks if the music is too loud and he usually changes it from the country radio station that he always listens to, because I hate it.
They speak english, what I meant by translation is... How do I say this in a nice way.. They assume things about other people that in no way could ever be true, ever. They believe things that aren't true at all and insist that they are right (my Nana and Popop thought squirrels live in holes underground). They think they are always right... But they aren't. I know that doesn't sound nice.. But that's the truth...
My parents joke that i am gothic too, I like black clothing because I'm a big dude, hides my ... rolls? xD I like what I like because I like it, not what other people tell me I should like, and they shouldn't be concerned about you being yourself. So what if people call you gothic? People have called me Emo, goth, all of those things for years. Labeling people is a sad existance and is just a weak way for people to understand the world around them by sectionalizing it into small parts instead of seeing the larger real picture. Everyone is different and is unique in their own way, its what makes life beautiful. I don't see why it is so hard to see we're all the same being tho, everyone has to try to change them into what THEY want, we're humans, not cookie cutters. Just remember, when people call you gothic, it means whatever you want it to. I take it as a compliment that I'm myself.
My brother is loud. He yells all of the time, stomps through the house making more noise than I do, and im about twice his weight and size, and he always blares his bass system in his truck so loud I have to hold onto my trachea to make sure i didn't swallow it. I beg him to turn it down and when I do turn it down because I flat out cannot take it anymore, he yells at me and tells me to never touch his f&%$#@!ing radio again. I had a surgery when I was little because I got ear infections a lot and when they did, one time it removed a place in my ear that lets you feel when you have any ear trouble, but it made me hear ridiculously well, hence when I talk quietly, its loud to me because I can hear it at twice the volume.
Ah.... a lot like my dad. He told me because I had downloaded a program on my computer that it made his internet speed on his phone slow. When I tried to explain to him what happened, he yelled and told me to stop questioning him. (This is the man who asked me 3 months ago where the power button was on my desktop)
Ok.. I'm guessing that means "wow this is a long comment.."??? Sorry.. I can't seem to condense my replies..
I really dislike labeling, because no one is the same, we don't do things for the same reason. My dad was genuinely concerned that I was going to be obsessed with dark things and drift away from God. Which, honestly I did a little, but because of my ... Intense faithfulness, I literally couldn't stay away for long.
I prefer to wear grey or neutral colors, nothing that stands out. I dislike wearing preppy colors. I figured I'm just boring. I have my ears pierced but I almost never wear earrings, and I pretty much never wear necklaces and bracelets either.
That's kind of the way my sister is. She used to be smaller then me.. But now she um like a few inches shorter then me and the same weight as I am. I'm still stronger than her and fortunately I'm older the her so.. I sort of have rights. But Im constantly telling her to turn it down.
I've always been bothered by loud noises, like at church, I used to have to cover my ears, but now I work in the library during the music part. I have no idea why I can hear so well, but I do know that my hearing is better then my seeing . and everyone is always telling me to speak up, which I dislike doing. But surgery o.o Ahhh
Lol that sounds kind of like my mom, she was trying to delete things off her phone to make space, but every time she deleted something it just took up more space, I asked to see her phone because i knew i could help and she told me no. Later she asked me to do something on her phone so I took the chance, I deleted a couple things and now she has much more space. We're teenagers, it's natural to us, you would think they would trust us .
moui bueno is spanish for much good xD Mine was just as long so don't worry, I like our ridiculously long conversations
That's very true.
As is mine... I personally see it as a personal thing so I could care less if they are concerned about it or not, I know my position on it, no one else needs to.
It's just your preferred style. I like to wear shirts that only have outstanding logos, not colors. (for instance my favorite shirt is solid black but with gray in blue letters spelling out a funny saying)If you see something you enjoy, wear it, whether its black or grey or rainbow, Just make sure you wearing it is for you, not some fear of ridicule or seeing yourself as boring (Might I add you're a very interesting person to me seeing as I hardly ever talk this much to anyone ) I love my Blink 182 and Portal 2 bracelets but I do see your point.
Been there, done that, except my brother is a lot older (myself being 16 and he is 22) until this year I wasn't able to even compete.
It bothers me too. I remember when I used to go to church (I'm still christian, just all of my church experiences didn't so anything so I stopped going)that the organ playing and music blaring made my head vibrate and it was torture. Your church has an entire library? wow O.o My eyesight is worse than my hearing as well, maybe that plays a role in it, but yea ^^" not as bad as it sounds, I was usually too hopped up on sleeping medication to remember much on it
Yea, My parents assume they know more about the world than me in ALL areas. Wish they would trust us more *sigh* guess that's what college years are for.
Ooohh...that makes sense now.. I like our ridiculously long conversations too, a lot.
Haha, I had this shirt that I loved, it was grey and had a monkey head that was wearing headphones. It said "it's cute how you think I'm listening". Which.. I'm kinda always listening, but.. I still loved the shirt.
Aww thanks I find that incredibly awesome, I don't feel that interesting of a person . but you are.... I can't say it without saying exactly the same thing you just said. You are a very interesting person to me and I don't talk to many people this much. Really though... When I talk to other people I don't feel the... Depth that I do with you. (Though... You are kinda.. Exactly like me in A LOT of things..)
I am glad that I'm the older sibling, my sister would do so many things if she was older then me. She is really clingy though, she hugs me a lot, she thinks I'm perfect. -_-
My church doesn't play organ music. See... My church is... Really big, so we have 3 different venues with three different types of music, so you can choose what music you like. I think the venue we go to is contemporary music. But it's really loud, and I really don't like it, I can hear it when the door is closed from the library which is across the hall and a few feet down. Haha yes my church has a library, I go to a big church... It's not a huge library, but it's of considerable size.
Maybe we'll get respect when we are adults? Maybe. I get more respect then most teenagers, but I have to show that I'm responsible to every single person.
I feel youre a lot more open than most of my freinds and family. It makes you such a wonderful person for me to talk to. I have ADHD like ... a lot, my parents refuse to believe me on that because they say im too smart and my grades are too good. I sit here and think like that constantly, everything I look at is (to me anyway) a database of information and possibilities. I.E. say i look at a bottle of water, I think of when its made of what it made of, whats in the ink on the logo, how good the logo looks, how the water is structured on an atomic level and i remembered this thing i read about water being aware of itself, because this japanese guy froze them playing two recordings one saying I love you and the other saying I hate you, the I love you one froze in beautiful snowflakes and the hate one froze into mess scattered structures.... this is all going through my mind in about 5 seconds. and thats only what I bothered to type xD Its really nice to have someone to talk to about this kind of stuff without them becoming either annoyed, bored, or wierded out I hardly ever talk to people during the day because when I was younger my family and kids at school would tell me to shut up (if you have ever seen bluestreak in transformers, I acted EXACTLY like him.) I find it something just not to bother with because, as you said no one would get the true depth of what I was saying. You are the exception to the rule I do find it odd, yet totally amazing how similar we are.
I did the same thing to my brother, I thought he was so cool and would never leave his side, then I realized what he grew into, now we are still friends but its not like it used to be.
Wow your church sounds.. really fun xD My church had 3 rooms. haha
Likewise, my parents and peers all the time comment on how "mature" I am. Okay, I didnt find your thats what she said joke funny and I watch science channel instead of MTV. I am still just as dumb as every other teen xD One thing I dont understand about my parents is they let my sister and brother roam the neighborhood, going to parties, hanging out with friends for entire weekends and afterschool while they got into drugs and tobacco, where I swore not to ever do any of them, have only a few friends to go around to, and hardly ever ask to do anything and I had to beg my mom to let me stay afterschool to work on an afterschool project and still got a no. :/
