How to Dress Emo... by KariNeko How to Dress Emo... by KariNeko
I wanted to draw a stylised guy for my portfolio redo and this is what it turned into...I gotta admit, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out! ...done entirely in Adobe Illustrator 9.0

Print of this will be available very soon! ;3 Help out a starving artist,...Please?

P.S. No offence meant to emos... I actually really like the look and am probably pretty close to dressing emo myself!

P.S.S I moved this to scraps since no one can take the joke and I'm getting sick of annoying comments about it.

I get it how most of them seem to dress like what you described, and I'm rating this as love, but you said it's a joke: it's not funny. And someone commented down there... 'I have a soft spot for emos, unless you cut your wrists just for the attention or something.' No, bitch, no. You don't understand the misunderstood. Some preppy pink lover girl can be Emo, and you don't even realize it.

Emo is a fashion style, depression is the emotion that the preppy girl would be feeling. A lot of depressed people dress emo, but not all emo kids are like that. I know a lot of emo kids who are so happy-go-lucky.

No one understands the misunderstood. That's why they're misunderstood.

I'd have to disagree that emo is a fashion style. "emo kids who are so happy-go-lucky" are called scene(which is a fashion style) There's no such thing as happy emos... ^

Scene and emo are much different in that scene tends to go overboard with bright colours and rainbows and pastels, while emo is darker and has more black and red.

I understand what you're getting at. There are some people who cut there wrists because they have issues or something bad going on it their life. I feel bad for those people . But, there are those certain people who only have simple problems and cut just to get attention. I think people like that are sad.

Yeah, most people cut themselves because they're in a lot of pain and are very depressed (just because it seems insignificant to others doesn't mean it doesn't cause someone else a great deal of pain) and need help. Then there are those that cut for the attention (I'm not even talking about a genuine cry for help but just to get attention or act cool or whatever) which is really annoying.

People reeeally need to get over this (well done) picture, all the "whaaa ur an asshole, emos don't dress like that!!!1!!" comments just show how little the "emos" of today know of emo history. YES people emos DID dress like that, they might not anymore but that doesn't mean the picture is inaccurate. seriously, get the fuck over yourselves cuz it really aint that serious.

It's neither, fool. I can't even begin to explain the deep meaning of 'Emo'. Don't be a smart ass and write, 'It means emotional'. No shit, Sherlock. You can't just pick to be emo one day, the same as you can't pick your sexual orientation because it's always been there. Someone in depression can be emo. Some preppy pink lover who is abused at home can be emo. You don't understand the misunderstood.

I love all emos except for one 'emo' chick in my class. She is the town slut and ya...............she is the only reason I dont tell people IM emo because all other emos in our town are called sluts like her just because she has f*cked every boy in our town. It's insane and just sad.

This is not how 'emos' dress, this is how normal people could dress. This is how most of the people at my art department dress, and I assure you that none of them is 'emo'.
I also thought emos wear black, and very tight pants, not looking like they live in the 60's.

This was based on how all the self proclaimed "emos" dressed at my college a few years ago when I graduated (why they called themselves emo I have no idea since they were some of the funniest people I used to talk to back then).

Also, this was done as a JOKE since I find labeling people by how they dress ridiculous. This is how I dress and I'm the least "emo-ish" person I know.

Seriously, at the time I posted this I didn't think so many people would take this serious. You'd be surprised how many people have taken offense to a quick, dumb drawing I did based off of MY personal experience in art college.

Why? Because this was done as a JOKE? I did this since I (personally) hate labeling people by how they dress.

Really, read a few comments before commenting. Quick judgments are what will hurt you later in life. I see you're 15 so you still have a waaaay to go before you can call even dream of calling me an asshole.

I'm sure you could. This was mainly just done as a joke since it was what was "considered" emo at my old art college. In fact, at my school, the "emo" kids weren't even really "emo" by today's standards.

At my old art college, emo's had a look (very retro/Weezer-ish) but weren't "scene" OR depressed. XD
