Decided to jump on an apparent bandwagon and do a Spirit Day drawing. (I've also been wanting to draw Bianca Frostwind again.)
Why the puzzle pieces? Well, my friends, I'm one of the many people who are on the autism spectrum. To be exact, a lucky (?) one with Asperger's syndrome, autism's mildest form.
I don't look much different than some people. If you saw me in a crowd, I suppose you'd think "That chick, she's just a typical person". Talk to me, though, and you'll notice some things.
I don't look you in the eye. Why not? You're not a gorgon, you won't turn me to stone if I make eye contact.
Why is it that I WON'T SHUT UP about a single topic? Why do I try to dominate the conversation?
Why am I so WEIRD?! Asperger's syndrome, my dear.
The source of bullying in my elementary years. Others saw me as a strange, unusual child. They used my odd actions as the butt of jokes, they exploited my quirks. And it drove me INSANE. Things eventually got to the point where I would snap and attack people. In 4th grade, I was planted in special education.
I have been bullied up until now, my second year in high school. I'm wary of most kids now, thinking I will be made fun of endlessly if I do the slightest thing that weirds them out.
Bullying is pointless, terrible, and uncalled for. I know what it feels like, being bullied. Why can't we all be friends, why can't this be stopped?
Following up from my last pic, a double whammy, seeing how I couldn't get round to doing a halloween picture last year.
As you can see we have some shenanigans, with Lumriya on the top left letting her wild side loose, not that her egg victims are amused. Seker's getting a treat for being a good kitty, and again Relicia is wiggling that tongue; it can mean a lot of things. : E
Characters and art by me. Done in inks and photoshop. I dare say I'm going to play around with the lights on this one, as I'm not keen on them just yet. Consider this a work in progress.
