Heavy Tears by NynjaKat Heavy Tears by NynjaKat
I planned on this originally before today....but today was just ironic.

Summary if TLDR: Really ironic that I got bullied & pushed to the point where I had to get up and leave during a class on Spirit Day. [the anti-bulling day]
I planned on making this& sketched it out yesterday before the incident, only now does it more so apply to me.

I was bullied to the point of having to get up and walk out of a class today, ON SPIRIT DAY.
I was playing pokemon in class, the teacher was FINE with it. The class was just on a random tangent about witchcraft [again, we're in the Puritan era of literature so it makes sense but we've gone over this plenty of times before& it was completely unrelated, the boys just simply wanted the teacher to waste time] But again, the teacher was COMPLETELY FINE with me playing it. That being said some boys started to poke fun at me for it saying I'd been playing it the whole period. [which was wrong, I'd actually been reading a book the whole period but after the tangent started I started playing] They Started pushing at me with rude comments, laughing and making fun of me. More people began to join in. The teacher was telling them to stop the whole time and I told them to several times too....It was ridiculous.They of course didn't listen & after a few minutes I got up told the teacher I was leaving and did so as the continued to say things as I left.

Afterwards one of the guys apparently went to the office and had his parents called up. The teacher was on my side and I believe that guy got a referral. Not sure. She called my parents and explained what happened, they're behind me on it too....She apparently got mad at them for not listening to her and being "Neanderthals", etc. My friends and the people with common [not so common] decency were against what was said. Not sure what it's going to be like on Monday. The word apparently went around school that one of the guys was a big jerk for what he did.... After leaving the class, I cried for awhile, off and on. The things they said were unjust and stupid but it still bothered me.

It's just dumb that this would happen today, of all days. It's sad and pathetic too. Think about what you're doing before you do it. What benefit does it gain you, hurting someone else? Nothing. You get nothing at all from bullying. If anything, you get in trouble and people dislike you for it.

Traditional sketch, speed digital painting.

I was looking at your gallery from the thumbnails and I saw this one and instantly enjoyed the confined moment and emotion. It's simplistic but the activity you give the hair and the light dancing in the reflective tear/eye really keeps the piece entertaining. Your hair work is really nice. I'mma fav this one.

I used to be bullied in school too. I know very well what it is like. I am sorry you had to go through this. I know it can be hard to deal with it at times. Just keep drawing. It will be your outlet. Just like writing was for me.

This piece would be perfect for a project we are developing -- an online gallery for artists who have been bullied or who explore the theme of bullying in their work. It's called the You Will Rise Project. Check it out here: [link] and read the "Submit Work" section for details about sharing your work on our site. Thanks!

i hate bullying, and the fact that they made those comments about you just adds to that. especially since they were blatantly untrue and were just to humilliate someone, and were acting like such IDIOTS by the sound of it.
and on SPIRIT DAY! jeez!
(slight rant coming on...okay it's passing)
anyway, I'm glad that you had people backing you up. it's much easier when you have even one friend on your side.
lots of love, and hope that it went better today.

I am so sorry this happened to you! I swear people these days just don't know how to behave!!! Bullying sucks but it is good that you have people backin you up! I hope that Mondays class is better and that they will leave you alone!!!
Best of luck!!

Its amazing, you painted this right? and about those guys, well there will always be jackasses in the world, srry correction stupid jackasses. Everyone knows that I have a short temper and have no problem with teaching anyone a lesson, yet they still pick on me sometimes. So point is people like that you just ignore, or punch, though igoring would work better. Besides It's not like half of em weren't texting the entire period

I'm sorry that happened to u but the drawing has more beauty to it after I read your little story. So things r just like that... sadly. Just remember that there will always be that one idiot in the bunch. No matter what.

how horrible..............people are low, sometimes. today of all days T__T sigh well, it's good that you got adults involved with the situation; that often helps set things right =/ and there's nothing wrong with pokemon -__- what the hell. what were THEY doing that was oh-so-special and cool? bleh people sometimes are just......bleh. but know that you are not the only one going through this. there's many of us out here who understand and want to stop bullying. nobody deserves to be picked on. oh, and this is a very nice picture. good job c:

i remember when that happened to my friend, although she wasn't playing pokemon, rather just being herself. It was the first time id ever seen her cry. :hug:
Fallonxi Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's such a beautiful picture, I feel very empathetic towards your day. I'm enrolled in an online school simply because of the other people in my town and public school. And off the record, I love pokemon.

I am so sorry this happened to you especially on this day of all days. The piece is beautiful and the eyes hold emotion.

People can be so stupid some times. And mean. Especially in school, because a lot of them don't know how to not be stupid. I get a lot of joking crap about my being a bookworm and reading most of the time I'm at this teen version of a youth center I go to after school because I don't really know the kids that go there, and the ones I do kind of know are always crowded the xBox playing video games I'm not very fond of, but it's never gotten THAT bad. I hope things get better and the guys all get what they deserve for being jerks.

That off my chest, this is a sad but lovely piece. I really like the coloring and how it was done overall--another awesome job!

nice emotion conveyed
AnnethK Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012
you're an amazing artist and amazing person, I know the words can hurt a lot, but you're amazing just, like you are, so, don't feel sad about the comments of some people.
I think it's ironic and so badly, and why just today? My day was like this, but the difference was that my class bully me, just because it's me.
Apparently they don't like the quiet person who talks to the teachers, do the homeworks and don't goes to drink with they.
My best friend don't went, so I felt sadly. But don't feel bad for a bad day. I think you have a lots of persons who loves you a lot.
So sorry for the experience you have :c

I know what it is like to be bullied, I was that kid everyone thought was fun to push around just because I was scared of them. It really sucks and I am sorry that happened to you. The thing I accepted was all my life there will be the stupid people but there will also be your friends and a friend getting mad for you or sticking up for you means the world when you are having a hard time. I am sure you'll be fine on Monday.

Thank you. :) I'm feeling better currently. I just want to forget the whole thing but I know, come Monday I'll have to see the 'Neanderthals' again. Thankfully there's still some human decency in my class that will&have defended me...:')
