This is Me by kidliquorice This is Me by kidliquorice
Posed by a model who resembles me in some ways :XD:

She's better looking than I am, even with all her errors. Hands are all wrong, and I'm pretty sure the head is too big for the body.

Who says I can't draw backgrounds??

(Answer: me)

But I did one this time! Inspired by an exercise in How to Draw and Paint Fairyland, by Linda Ravenscroft. It's a good book! If I could only summon the energy to study it.

Anyway, yeah. People need to stop feeling sorry for me because I sit alone. And stop accusing me of sulking just cos I'm too tired/depressed/distressed to talk.

But they are too small, and the lines are jerky and they look just... wrong.

Meh, your hands aren't bad!

XD! Well, thank you! ^^

But your hands aren't bad either. But...That's up to what the artist thinks I guess. XD

It's in my traditional art that my difficulty with hands shows up the most. For digitally inked art, it's a lot easier to correct :D

Oh yeah! I agree! Just for that reason I've become a digital artist!

I know! But the thing is, traditionally drawing is more comfortable. My netbook screen has really bad glare, and my desktop (not that I ever get a chance to go on there anymore) doesn't even have a space for my feet under the desk, so the end result is aches and pains and lots of eyestrain either way :(

I use my lightbox as a netbook platform these days :sprint:

I could barely talk when I was 3.
Nothing wrong with being who you are.

Lovely picture BTW. :)

Thank you very much! My nephew was also very slow talking, but now he can go on for an hour (literally, I mean it) about Hornby trains :D

This is really cool, and I definitely relate to it. Just because you're alone, it doesn't mean people should assume you've been shunned from everywhere else or something. Maybe we really do just want to be alone. Being happy with yourself is something I know even better, since I've come to embrace all of my differences: especially my Asperger's. I love this drawing, because it's both well-done and definitely true. It's pretty and insightful! ^_^

Thank you! I never get lonely, but NTs don't get it, just like I don't get their obsession with needing people to constantly acknowledge their existence.

I remember last year, I was in the staff canteen eating on the sofa, and a group of girls at the table said, "Come and eat with us." So I said, "Why?" because honestly, I cannot think of anything more tedious than sitting with women*. And they said, "Well, because it's better." So I said again, "Why?" And they had no idea. "Because it's just... better." :XD:

I agree with you; I spent most of my life wishing I could be more like "normal people" and hating myself for being so inadequate. I don't have to do that anymore.

*Seriously, what is it with women always telling me how to live my life? Wear these clothes! Get married! Have lots of children! Why don't you want to? What's wrong with you? You should do it! Blah blah blah. I never get this kind of crap from men. Like I said, nothing more tedious than having to sit with women.

(Sorry that was a really long and rambly reply!)

Et le titre m'a fait pensée à la chanson "this is me" de Demi Lovato. :O haha. c'est genre, le même concept. dire que c'est toi, que tu es bien là et tout...:D

Je ne connais pas la chanson. Mais c'est rigolo, parce que quand je dessinais (?) les lignes, j'écoutais "This is not me" par Delta Goodrem :XD: Mais c'était tout a fais coïncidence :rofl:

Est-ce que trouves aussi que les autres gens ne comprends pas du tout qu'être seule, c'est pas une mauvaise chose? Ils sont comme: Tu es toute seule! Pauvre fille! Je vais m'asseoir avec toi!

Non non non non!!!

Ouais, parfois.
Parfois j'aime être seule, même si souvent je préfère être entourée de ceux que j'apprécies.

Hahaha! I spend most of my time in a dream world and some people might equate that to being lonely, but it's not that at all! I don't think I've ever been lonely in all my life, to be honest. The happiest 3 weeks of my life was when my family went on holiday and left me home alone. Oh crumbs, that was awesome :D Anyway, my dreaming time is how I come up with all my manga characters and so on -- which could be a good or bad thing, depending :XD:

lol, I hope it's mostly good! But I totally understand--sometimes I just can't think when my family's clomping around or my neighbors are coming over to hang out or...whatever. Solitude just works out better sometimes.
