To be an outsider by Zengel To be an outsider by Zengel
Old version… Now Iskra looks more like an outsider.

This is a collaboration between me and the great :iconazzai: She drew those background characters and helped with coloring Iskra! :3 I drew Iskra and colored the picture.

I must also say thanks to ~Alimika, she helped me to improve a sketch for this pic ^_^

I know how that feels to youre not alone :( But the drawing is awesome :)

What is also sad is that when I felt this detached, I couldn't see others who felt the same way, maybe those who cheered me on or those who liked or admired me. I am sure the same can be said for Iskra. ^_^

 I always had a massive soft spot for people who felt this, often wanting to help them smile or laugh. This might be my attempt to hide my own similar feelings but reactions are what drives me forward. I wonder if Iskra enjoys people-watching. :3

I recognize in your art the same feelings I had growing up.  You work it into your art, I express it in my writing.  Outsiders can always recognize one another.  It is something that made us what we are today, stronger, more confident, and empathetic to our fellows.

Wow you made it even better!

I'd dance with her.     ^^      
CatsHaveNoRules Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2016
If I was there I would walk up to her and ask her for a dance and offer her a drink

BlazeFirethorn Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey, it's kinda like me.
Only I'm a guy.
And I don't wear a dress.
Other than that, that's me at a dance.
WaveSKyLord Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
That feels, the same everytimes everywhere
Brochtree Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015
 A lovely picture. and i can understand how she feels. been the outsider for most of my life. If i was there i'd walk up and offer to dance just to annoy the people ignoring her. but that is how i am. :)

I can so relate to this.  people avoid me in school, one girl even wants me dead. all because I decided not to me one of the girls who is like everyone else in my school. I can describe them ALL on the spot. have some originality people! other than that your a great artist.

I've been where she is, I even went to prom alone, too, and ended up having an alright time anyway:)
miagia78 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014
But, she's prettier than everyone else there!
Saakumi Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Sorry for being snuffing, but..
What's the matter of she being prettier? That doesn't make her better then everyone else :/
miagia78 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015
Is it her personality that makes her an outsider, was what my comment meant.
Saakumi Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm okay, sorry xD

draveken Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014
This so reminds me of the roleplaying I am doing with a close friend. She is playing a kitten girl and I her adoptive father. I can see this happening to her as a teen. God she is gonna kill me if I don't share this with her lol.

The girls in the right corner look jealous. Except the rabbit
DRA3-NER0 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I guess us Deviants are all outsiders one way or another. This picture is great in portraying that notion with the juxtaposed cool and warm colors as well as the expressions giving it a grouped yet lonely feel to it.
masterofsteam Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
But Iskra's cuter than anyone there! How does she not have a partner!? D:
