Pin-up of "Goth Ghost Girl", a character created by John Schlim at Fablewood Studios, this drawing was the back cover of a pin-up collection book with various artists doing their take on the ethereal gothic chick.
She's great! I'm exactly into Goth stuff, I just read her summary, I'm a conformist (I think) but I like artworks on supernatural stuff, in this [link] is cartoon-type but some people against in just because they think are heretics, (the kids have magic powers).
I believe so, I don't have a subculture or in a gan, but I believe so. The kids, I don't know I have a hard time thinking, I mean, each kid have their only personal way of think or want to be, they just want to be different from adults, and I agree. Why I'm saying this because this Goth Ghost Girl was killed by conformed-minded people, I'm thinking these same kind of people would do the same thing misjudging those who just want to be different or are different; including me as an artist. In this drawing I showed you, I drew those angels as bad guys but for fun as a fictional plot.
There's nothing wrong with wanting to belong; sharing with others is an important part of how humans live together. But you are right; conformity, where people just act the same so they don't have to think for themselves, SUCKS! And it really BAD. It's an easy out, where going your own way, making yourself stand out as an individual, takes more work and brain-power. Conformity is easy, because you don't HAVE to think about it, you just fall into line and become a drone.
The extra effort to define yourself as an individual IS worth it; might not seem that way now, but it does pay off, just be patient.
