Tards might like girls, but few sensible girls like them back.

A little jerky, I know, but I'm still learning how to use Fireworks. :P
Thank you for looking!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-06-01
Ignored by =synconi is an adorable emoticon which conveys the emotional struggles tard emotes must certainly face! The shading is very well done and the animation is smooth, especially on small details like the bobbing head during the pink emote's walking cycle. ( Suggested by iWin72 and Featured by Chimpantalones )
:iconskillzombie:
What does it truly mean to feel ignored. Some of us see it as simply the feeling one feels when others around them and do not interact with them in any form. Be it hangin out or talking or simply being in the same room as one another. However, sometimes being ignored can carry a completely different meaning altogther. Perhaps one feels as though there are countless opportunities that are passing them by each and every day. As if they are intentionally skipping over this individual and never allowing them to take a shot at any challenge so that they could prove their worth to the world and their fellow peers. Having any chance of showing their true originality in front of others and allowing all of their inner talents to blossom forth have now become tarnished and destroyed before them. Instead they feel mentally isolated, never to interact or feel any form of attachments to other people and then they slowly begin to rot away. Their once cheerful demeanors tashed before friends and family as if something were taken from them like a flower wilting in the cold grasp of the winter air. Not something tangible mind you, but something that carried much more value to them than few other things in their lives. Perhaps a spark if you will, the very force they felt gave their life meaning has now officially burned out once and for all. With this spark in its death throws, its embers burning sullenly in the mind of their keeper, the individual feels as though there is no longer a reason to continue on with life as they have been and relinquish any hope of regaining the happiness they once felt before. Alone and helpless, they cloister themselves away from the public and other people and simply become in their minds what they feel everyone else around them would like to be; gone. :Ignored, created by the multi-talented `synconi, presents us with a similar scenario of lonliness and how one can feel isolated and alone despite the visible presence of others about them.

I have to commend the artist for their use of simplicity in the image as it really makes its inner personality come forth from its animation and presents us with a bit of depth behind its animated motions. The simple expression of the character, while not exactly presenting a detailed expression for the viewer, its actions are still audible enough for one to feel how it feels in front of them. The character's almost vacant expression perfectly reflects an urge by the individual to become noticed in some way, just so someone could speak to them and make them feel as though their existance matters in some way. Just so it could actually feel affection from others in even the most minuscule of ways. Its hand moving out slowly, wanting to be noticed by each passerby to leave at least a slight impression upon them to simply let them know that the individual exists. As one watches more and more, a slight attachment to the character begins to build with the viewer. They feel a slight urge to want to comfort this small character in some way despite being unable to do so in the confines of their home. Its the emotional strings that this piece pulls that really grant it so much appeal with viewers, and a great show of the artist's capability of display subtle emotions in animation.

Now with everything that seems to work well with this animation, I do feel as though a few things could be done to improve this piece. While I think the simplicity is one of its stronger points, in some cases it could be seen as maybe a bit to simple. For example adding a few more in-between frames in the animation will really give the emote that much more depth in both quality and emotional grasp for the viewer. A setting for the actions depicted would also grant a welcome personal touch to the whole scenario, or even shifting backgrounds to emphasize that being ignored can happen anywhere and is not just an occurance in a specific place. This way the message of the image could be that much deeper for others to see, understand and even relate to. My suggestion is to keep playing around with this piece and find out what could really work out for it no matter what combinations are implemented into it.

Being ignored is never something that we really enjoy. While some wish to be left alone and out of the way of others, the lonliness eventually gets to them and their concept of companionship and even interaction with others becomes greatly strained overtime. This will soon leave them a shell of their former self, completely deviod of personality and life as they shift through their lives without nary a notice to anyone or anything. If something is not done to prevent such events from occuring, the indvidual might end up taking very, very dire steps to make the pain of isolation end and to finally feel a release of these shackles of loneliness. All of these personal destruction and hatred because they were simply...ignored. :Ignored: is a subtle reminder of the dangers of isolation and the various impacts it could have on those who are ignored. They may not show it on the outside, but on the inside the pain could be more than one could comprehend. Good work, Gabrielle.

That is so cute. His little froggy eyes make it, looks so damn innocent. The detail is simply great. I'm sure there are a lot of guys out there who know that feeling... maybe not so cute ^^; Love it.
