Valentines Day by Cherrie-Keane Valentines Day by Cherrie-Keane
EDIT: OH THE TERRIBLE HORRIBLE THINGS THIS PICTURE HAS CAUSED ME
the person it was actually ABOUT actually FOUND this
first of all, I applaud their detective skills
second, I curse ever making this because OMG THE TROUBLE IT CAUSED, LIKE I SAID BEFORE. :angered:

pretty much, a 3 hour long conversation went down full of almost nauseating amount of soap-opera like emotion

oh karma. KARMA. why do you fuck with me like this? :stab: I mean HE SPARED NO DETAILS. DEAR GOD. :faint:

anyway, back to the original description kiddies! :nod:

--------------------------------------------
oh dear
is it really valentines day?
already? :stab:

let me be frank:
I have never really had a good valentines day
even though my birthday is the day before
I always end up feeling lonely and blatantly single on V-day

and lately, Ive been having a...difficult time with someone in my life
at first, I didn't like him at all
but then...if you read, he grew on me
and then, OUT. OF. NOWHERE.
he got a girlfriend. he didn't even TALK about her
and yet, he continued to flirt with me, and tell me how much he loved me
and...I wonder, does he expect me to be OK with that?

but then, I think I am overreacting
and I need to chill out
so I decided to make something for it
the thing about being an artist is that, if I'm feeling something and it overwhelms me, as long as I get it down on paper and like the result, the feelings go away
if you pay attention, every major turn in my life is marked by some kind of artistic expression
it helps me clear my head and move on

since I made this, me and J still talk like nothings happened
one day, I want to ask him WHY he cant stay single for more than 5 minutes
but for now, I dont even see her as a threat


UGH
jessie, this is NOT LIVE JOURNAL.

moving on from my god damn feelings

THIS THING TOOK FOREVER.
the filesize was FUCKING HUGE. my GOD
and then I had to downsize it to get the PNG to work correctly
GAY. :frustrated:

anyway, blood brushes here: [link]
song that I listened to while coloring it: [link]

LOL. ASHER ROTH. YOU NEED TO COOL DOWN GOOD SIR. :love:

fun fact: I drew ALL THOSE ROSES FROM SCRATCH
I want to rip my eyes out
roses are complicated and stupid and I hate them :angered:

but, to all the loved and unloved masses out there, I sincerely wish you a happy valentines day. eat some chocolate or something.

Well I (unknowingly) got you a birthday present! (the runaways)

Your work on the roses was worth it, the slowly bleeding and semi-transparent effects work well.

Valentines day... I've had more sucky ones than good ones. The guy sounds quite flaky, you can do better. You deserve better.
You seem to be dealing with it the same way I did, make it into a comic. These pages of mine are based on my worst v-day: [link] and [link]

9th grade, I made a homemade valentine, I got up the courage to give it to the guy... he crumpled it up and threw it at my head, all of his friends laughed, and spent the weeks after threatening me (even one time pushing me into moving traffic). Years later I find out my former best friend from when I was a little kid MARRIES the guy. They wanted to invite me over for dinner and reminisce. Yeah, NO THANKS.
Jokes on him though, I turned him into the villain of my comic. Vengeance through art!

But this year's v-day has been a good one so far for me. :)

...oh my god. thats....awful. like really, I wanted to cry.
im so sorry you had to go through that, it sounds like a nightmare. I should really count my blessings.

I know this guy sounds flaky and I shouldnt want him still but...I do. I really do. and I trust him, which, with my trakc record, should be flashing red lights right there.
I feel like Im in a horrible, HORRIBLE romance book, and Im the annoying mary sue character. ugh, why cant I be a stonger female!!! :frustrated:

and thanks. those roses really did annoy me, and for a while i thought they/the blood looked retarded.

ALSO, BEST EARLY B-DAY PREZZIE EVER. SRSLY. I LERVES THEM.

I hated Valentines for a long LONG time because of it. I'm over it now, once I had the comic pages drawn I let the feelings go once and for all. My only point in bringing it up is that guys can be royal jerks.

Not all for them, though. I feel lucky now... Having a nice guy in my life, who gave me a Valentines gift early.

All I can say is, don't get serious about a guy who won't get serious about you.

WHAT? YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THE DAY BEFORE/TOMORROW?! WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?! *must make drawing now. D: *

anyway. i totally hate V-Day. seriously. i never have anyone "special" to share it with, and when i was younger, i was always too shy to give the Valentine i made to my crush. but whatever, right? someday.

someday.


on another more-related note, i love this piece. it's beautiful and heart-wrenching and truer than anything else i've seen elated to V-Day, seeing as how - more often than not - there is heartache involved with the Halmark-holiday, instead of heart-warmth. so i can totally relate to this, and aside form that, i just love how it plays out, almost like a string of thoughts being played n a violin. ;D

LOL. I hate for people to know when my b-day is
I makes me so embarrassed, and I have no idea why. Plus, I couldn't finish your b-day prezzie in time, so you dont need to make me anything ari! YOU BEING AWESOME IS PRESENT ENOUGH!!! :glomp:

same here. and the one year I DID muster up the courage to give my valentine to my crush, he send me a valentine telling me how fat/ugly I was. it was horrible. :cries:

LOL ARI YOU ARE AMAZING. when I made this, I TOTALLY imagined it to be like a sting of thoughts being played to this song: [link]
wow, MIND READING FTW. :giggle:

but Im glad you interpreted it like that, becuase in the end, I wanted people to feel something when they saw this.
