Forgotten by Aurielis Forgotten by Aurielis
Recently a group of my friends have all been hanging out with each other, but not me. And it's not just one or two other people. It's ALL of them together, and they didn't even bother to ask if I wanted to hang out with them. I mean what's one more when there's already a large group? And to add on to it, there was a new girl in school this year that they've become very well acquainted to, whom they all hang out with a lot more than me. They never hang out with me anymore. What's the matter with that?

So that has inspired me to draw this sort of depressing picture. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you all for your support and kind, kind words! I really appreciate it! Things are a-okay now! ^_^

I'm new at my school and the first day everyone was nice and stuff and I missed a day and when I come back I was like invisible! Literally,I sneezed and all of them jumped and where like "Oh my gosh your like a ghost! Don't sneak up on us like that!" but I'd been standing there the whole time ;n;. I know how u feel and its a terrible feeling:huggle: for both of us

AwW oh my gosh that awful!! That's so ignorant of them! How could they have not noticed you?! And it is an terrible feeling but at least there are others who understand so you don't feel all that left out =)

And have you ever heard of the manga Koko Ni Iru Yo (or I Am Here in English)?? It is an awesome and super cute manga, and the main character is going through exactly what you are about being invisible to her classmates. Perhaps it could cheer you up to try to be more courageous and try talking to all those people again =) Again, that is soo soo awful of all those people! I just wanna punch them in the face and be like stop being so ignorant! :XD:

Ikr! I feel so happy!

OMG MY FRIEND AND I ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW MY LIFE IS LIKE THAT MANGA NOW!!!! I would be Sunflower and I guess my friends on here can count as Black Rabbit and Mega Pig. I just finished reading volume 2 and Im in love with it! My life is defiantly like that now....But in the end she was in the sun with all her friends:). And Mega Pig wasnt who we thought....Wow that's so much like my life now.....

I'm glad you are!

Yes exactly! When I was reading it, I was thinking to myself, no one really doesn't notice someone THIS much. I mean it just seemed so mean and just too extreme, but I guess people really can be that ignorant. And I'm really sorry that it's happening to you. But yeah I REALLY loved that manga!! It was just soo adorable and yeah really happy ending, although I felt soo bad for Teru! Yeah I know! I thought Mega Pig was gonna be Teru! Haha i loved the extra about Mega Pig. Yeah it really is, which means you're going to make friends! =)

Oh yeah I know! But I actually really adore how Black Rabbit is Teru because he was always looking out for her, even from the beginning. So adorable! :heart: Hmm well there are 2 volumes in English because they're really massive and have 10 chapters in them, but that's the whole series. Yeah I know! I thought it was a really unpopular manga even though it's soo good but then I found some groups here on dA and realized that a lot more people read it than I thought

I always have trouble drawing flowing hair. Do you have some tips?
Reply
:iconaurielis:
Aurielis Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aw I bet if you try really hard to improve, it'll be a breeze! =) Hair when it blows, it curves in a whole bunch of directions and I just layer those strands of hair one after another. I'm really sorry if that's not really helpful! I don't really know how to However when that's not enough, I just really loved how *cherriuki drew hair and it sorta inspired me to draw hair similar to that (i hope it's not exactly the same way as her's) because she draws hair so amazingly! Sorry I can't be of much help!

No, your advice is very good! I'm just always confused as to where to start the hair. Sometimes it doesn't look natural.

Aurielis Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm glad to hear that my advice was good! =) Oh yeah that's always really hard to do. Hmm what I do is that the further away the strands of hair are from the top of the head the more freely they can blow in the wind and stuff. Perhaps if you lightly sketch out the hair in a normal state (w/o any wind) you could more easily draw flowing hair from there?

It would also be pretty sad if they forgot about you. Maybe say hello and offer to organize a meet up? If worst comes to worst and they don't want to, just don't sweat it. Friends come and go and will often go their separate ways as time goes on. I know it sounds cold, but if your friends forgot you or worst case scenario just feel like excluding you, I'd say it's time to just let them go and find new ones.

Yes I've tried so many times to organize a hang out but it never works out because they just don't try as hard to actually pull through with the plans with me and they would with each other. Thank you so much for the friend advice. I'm really just thinking about just simply not really calling them my friends anymore, but acquaintances, and not really caring too much about them since they don't really seem to do the same. Although I'm not sure if that's super harsh....

This is a beautiful piece :love:

What I love about it.. is that it focuses on a theme that many are familiar with. It's something that we've all felt at one time or another. This is a beautiful portrayal of it- and the artistic elements are really beautiful. I love the flow of the hair; and the shading on it! The focus on the girl is perfect, and the expression is perfect.

Wonderful! :heart:

thank you so much for your very nice comment! :hug: honestly it's still the same. and even when i ask them to hang out and they are all happy about it, the plans never go through. because of them. yet i still see them hanging out with their other friends. im sorry to ramble on about this but im just not sure what to do. they're super nice people, i like talking to them, but are they really friends?

and yes i do have another group of friends that i hang out with. they're hilarious and i talk to them about this stuff sometimes, but i know that they don't really understand.

aw sounds like you're in a tough position, I wish I knew how to help you but I'm really not sure. I guess all you can do is be persistent with trying to organise social things with the friends that keep hanging out without you - it's frustrating feeling like you're putting in all the effort to maintain the friendship, but maybe they'll start inviting you to join them in return for always inviting them to do things with you.

yeah that sounds like a good idea. thank you for your advice. i truly appreciate it a lot. i hope they're nice enough to realize it all without having to confront them with anything. and yes it is frustrating!! all year id try to hard to talk to them when they put almost no effort whatsoever. i do hope that they'll invite me to hang out. every time i see a photo on facebook about them all hanging out i feel like such a loner.

Oh dear! Maybe you should say something and ask if they want to hang out with you? If they don't say yes, then something would be wrong in my opinion. Maybe you should speak up?
Reply
:iconaurielis:
Aurielis Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah I've considered many times to say something, but I don't want to feel mean saying it. I mean what if after I tell them that they won't want to be my friend anymore or they feel forced to hang out with me?? And when i do ask to hang out with them they always say yes, but for some reason nothing ever happens. They don't really pull through. I mean i try hard to make it happen, but then it doesn't. =( I suppose I'm just to scared to speak up
