thank you guys for your warm words and cheer-ups. yes, I have a bad time but I'll be better. I don't think I have depression. I'm just naturally sad person, that's all and sometimes I just need to have sad mood. I'll be fine, don't worry. I don't plan to commit a suicide or cut my whole legs and arms. it's alright, really. and thanks for the funny cat videos ^^

ohmygod. I even don't want to read that "you-are-wrong!-no-you-are" comment-fights about self-harming. probably both sides have right. serioulsly guys, chill out. my statement? yes, it's kinda annoying when emo teenagers cut their wrists legs whatever, make photos/.gifs and post it on tumblr. it's just crying for attention and it's annoying, because uh, to be honest, most of them are just lost and don't know how to handle their problems and their life isn't that bad. "my scars ale like tattoos but with the stories behind" whaaaat... how old are you? like 14? but in other hand I like to watch photos with wounds, bruises and that kind of stuff. I just like it and find it cool. also what's the difference between cutting yourself a X mark and scarification? getting scarification - cool. cutting X mark - lame and unamture. (uh. YES I know that there IS a big difference but chill out) I grew up from cutting wrist/legs I think it's fine when you're 15 not 22, when you want so show to the whole world all your pain and sad life and stuff. uh. I had just bad mood and wanted that X mark from long time so I did it. it's probably the same thing as making piercings on your own (which is bad because you can make yourseld harm, better go to proffesional piercer). anyway - kids, self-harming is bad and makes you looks like a cutting board. it's not sexy it's just crying for attention. better go and talk with your friends or something. drugs are also bad.
make coffee not war. or whatever.
wish my english could be better to write more decent and wise notes.
I'd just like to differ in something: Age does not necessarily mean experience. Because I know a lot of people who have gona a shitload of pain, and have lived things that aren't meant to be lived at such young age or some should not be lived at all. Those are stories, painful ones. Those are experiences and they just eighteen or younger. I've lived through enough and I'm barely seventeen. Age does not mean experience or wisdom.
I like the drawing!! But i have a question.. in what language do you speak. PS: Sorry my english is not very good either i wish i could give my opinions but i don't know how to express myself in english.
Hey, cheers from Canada! I hope you wounds will heal. I'll draw you something (soon)! Feel better love. If you want happiness, go look for it. It's hard to be happy. Hmmm watch this it make me happy ---> ([link]
Najpierw postujesz depresyjny obrazek ze smutnym podpisem, ewidentnie wskazujący na samookaleczenie. Potem piszesz,że to wcale nie samookaleczenie i robienie sobie sznytów w gimbazie jest żenujące, potem,że byłaś smutna, ale już się dobrze czujesz, a na końcu,że tak na prawdę to tylko skaryfikacja i nie ma nic wspólnego ze sznytami. Co ja nawet nie. ??
hi, normally just put your favorite drawings, watch for a long time (I'm a bit shy to comment), but I really admire your art and yourself because even though you have problems, you're creating art forever.
people like me will be carried away by the everyday and betray their not creating art, I think that when we die we will go to another world where there is everything here these colors, the sea, the earth, light, darkness, etc. and that when we open things beyond beautiful but different from this world and at least I want to make the most of what this world gives me, by the time I left to live even if he dies tomorrow, I learn, experiment and create what more can and know that life lived to the fullest I play in this world, or that I elected to live really, I admire you and I think that even though sometimes life is sad, dull or monotonous, it can also be quite otherwise depends on how you decide to live. sorry for my bad English.
I think that there should be more art on issues like that. It alerts people who have no idea what self harm feels like and often raises awareness. A am a bit melancholic myself and since i suffer from chronic depression i can understand a little bit more than most people out there. It is a fight that you have to fight alone though. Keep making art out of your feelings.
Ok, masz tu już pełno osób, które wyrażają swój pogląd na sprawę i prawdopodobnie nawet tego nie czytasz, ale chciałabym jednak powiedzieć coś od siebie. Jestem młoda, nawet bardzo. Jestem naturalnie smutna. Czasami u mnie, smutek rośnie do bardzo dużych rozmiarów, bez żadnego konkretnego powodu. Cięcie jest uwolnieniem. Wolałam się ciąć, niż trwać czas w tym okropnym, niewytłumaczalnym, przytłaczającym... bólu. Taki sposób nie jest trwały, ale nie znam żadnego innego, który by działał. Denerwuje mnie, kiedy ktoś myśli, że kiedy ktoś jest młody/mały, nie może mieć problemów. To kompletnie nie prawda. Jestem człowiekiem, tak samo, jak inni i jestem w stanie odczuwać to samo. No bo... w sumie co za różnica, czy masz 14 lat, czy 17. Czy rok jest magiczną granicą, za którą można coś czuć?.. Trochę mnie bawi takie myślenie. Wszystko zależy od dojrzałości umysłu. Szczerze, wolałabym bawić się lalkami, niż czuć to, co teraz. Ale tak nie jest i denerwuje mnie, jeśli ktoś tego nie rozumie.
I have an odd perspective on all this: I appreciate scars. No, not these. REAL scars. If you got your shit absolutely WRECKED through living life to the fullest, that's fine. I knew a girl who had burn scars from face to wrist, and she was beautiful... But people who sit in a room with a blade or a hot wire and GIVE themselves scars? That's the difference between having war stories, and writing about war from a classroom. It feels FAKE, and I don't like it. Go out, live life. If you want to bleed, there're plenty of assholes who will help you with that. Have a story to go with it.
Just another random comment from a random freak on DA incoming, but i though it would be nice to let you know that i like you work, deeply, and the way you write in your descriptions parts (especially this one i guess, even though i've never cut myself and stuff). As far as i / we know you, you seem to be a great girl, don't let your life burn you down.
Ugh, I still struggle with self-harm, and I'm 21. It's definitely not a way to solve your problems. It's just like doing drugs to numb your pain; it only prolonges the issue, it does nothing to resolve it. I really admire people who can speak out about it, because it's something I've felt ashamed of about for a decade (I just told my mom last year that I have issues with cutting myself. Luckily I've managed to refrain from doing it for a few months now).
I agree, there is a big difference between scarification and cutting. I hope you are feeling better, and keep up the good art!
Uh...not all teenagers are harming themselves for attention but because they have serious problems. o_O Okay, there really are whiny kids who post pics of their cuts to get attenition, but there are people out there who really have a problem with the cutting and then are stamped down for "doing it only for attention" because all the whiny kids do it for attention and of course everyone thinks that anyone who cuts is a whiny emo attention whore.
I don't mean to bother you or anything, but "naturally sad" person really points to depression. Could be a chemical imbalance in the brain, or just psycological. You think you "enjoy" or like being sad/bad mood/world sucks kind of thing (I really did)... but when you are not there anymore you see how much better everything is and how unhappy you really were.
The "raw" style that you kept for this is fitting for the subject matter. I definitely like your use of the different colored lines. Off topic of the art, I hope you get your sad mood out of the way. <3
I think that whether they realize it or not, people cut because that is the only way they can let out emotion at the time. It is sort of cathartic in the same was as drawing is, only it's alot more dangerous. I also saw your Monsters picture, I think that creative people tend to be more prone to things like just feeling sad. I tend to have alot of crazy stuff going on in my head too. Even if you fee this way its good that you can put it into a picture, art is not only comforting to ones self but can really help other people with similar issues that see it. I hope you feel better soon.
Comfort of self harm is a big reason most people do it. I should know. Having almost thirty scars on my legs and all.... Hope you feel better. Sorry I cant help, if you need to talk, message me dear. I understand.
