Because I'm depressed and have a tendency to abandon drawings out of frustration.

You don't understand.  Dysthymnia isn't like how most people imagine depression to be, because our media does a piss poor job of representing it.

Imagine you're stuck in a gray world.  Nothing really makes you really happy.  You never gush with excitement.  You don't pump your fist in cheer when your team wins the game.  You never feel like you did anything awesome.  On your very best days you're content.  You take solace that you're an okay person.  That if you're not wonderful, you're at least not bad.  You might laugh at jokes, but you don't feel it.  You might know something should be funny, but not want to laugh.  And you know that you make other people uncomfortable, so you pretend like nothing is wrong.

And then you wake up some mornings and the world is a little darker than usual.  And it gets harder to pretend you're happy.  So you get angry.  And people don't like you.  And you hate yourself more for not being who they think you should be.  And everything that's supposed to be funny is just stupid.  And all those important things that you need to do to get through the day just seem so hard and pointless because you're going to fail anyway, so why try?  And they have pills you can take to make it better.  Just take the pills!  Why don't you take the pills?  Because the pills have side effects that make you puke and crap yourself and kills your sex drive and obliterates your creativity... and without that, you might as well be dead, so you don't take the pills...

And then you wake up some mornings and the world is black and all you hope is that it will stop hurting and you hope that tomorrow the world is a little more gray than black and that you're sorry for being born and you're sorry for everything you do being a failure and your sorry and you hurt and you just want it to END.

But it won't.  It never will.

Because you live in a gray world.

Look dumbass, I know the causes and some of the answers to them are not ideal.
I don't want to get too personal on here because I don't need strangers trying to throw a pity party for me.
Given my situation, health, and family's health, you would think otherwise. So until you have some of my problems, don't bother talking to me.
Til then, go fuck yourself, kindly.

Yeah I think  all know what that feels like, at least we all would know what it would like if any of us saw Stand by me by Stephen King.
It's difficult to try and hang on to a child hood friend I can't even remember any of friends from when I was young. But if they made any impact in you're life and chances are some of them might of, child hood friends are an important part of your life. Some of them may have even shaped how your are now and even if you're away from them now and they're not directly in your life at least you got memories and fact is you never have the same kind of friends you did when you were young.

But god if you were them you'd pray like hell to Celestia that you had friends like them, even if it was just for a little while :| (Blank Stare)

I think I can see why they're crying. They could be crying about Babs Seed's death. Of how they're crying for one of the members of their crew actually faded from them. I really do love this piece. It shows so much emotion in their eyes, it's possibly alot more realistic than how I portray them, so that's sort of jealously from me, forgive me for that. ^^;

I love this! But I am confused. What is the story behind this picture? Are one or more of the Cutie Mark Crusaders moving out of Ponyvlle and saying goodbye? Did one of them get their cutie mark and decided to leave the crusaders? Please give some back story to this picture.

Nonetheless, I think this picture is really sad, and in a good way.

I'm assuming you're going for this look/style and it's all deliberate,
but have you tried increasing the saturation slightly in the shadows to make it pop a little more and look more lively?

yeah. I wanted to have all three in one picture, but I got caught up in cosplay stuff and college endeavors, so I didn't have much free time so I made each one separate, then put all three into one.

I once saw an artist who always asked not to submit his art to EqD. Of course it always ended up there anyway, either by people not reading descriptions or by them simply disregarding the artist's solicitation.
Anyway. Would you happen to also have a separate picture of Sweetie Belle?

I forgot to make a separate one of her, but I can do that real quick.

Nothing last forever. Why it is best to remember what it was like, not who or what it became. Remember what something or someone was before perishing, but not while perishing.

Interesting though, but I rather not extract emotions from this.

Cannot blame for not wanting on EQD, place is nothing as it once was, at all.
