Cho Seung by Fealasy Cho Seung by Fealasy
Image made for the newspaper I work at (Nyhedsavisen). Asking questions like "was the evil or just haunted? Was it something in his head or the society around him?"

Kinda funny... A few months ago this was a guy I'd never ever have a chance to even know. And now I'm actually drawing him. Amazing what killing some people will get you.

Fullview or I'll... Kill Dick! Aarrfggaaff!!!!...

I had thoughts of shooting up my school, stalking the hallways pouring bullets into my fellow classmates(knock Knock) oh shit its the FBI they were monitoring deviant crap.what did they expect when they eliminate free will, freedom of expression they expect all of us to be clean cut and mindless for when it comes the time to walk into the grinder. Then when some one like cho here decides to take a gat to his pain, like what a doctor does when he injects morphine into a patient that cries. Then in an attempt to take down the a monster the media declares him the wicked the injust, as we invade and kill for black gold. You know i allways found it funny that those who had everything they wanted never could fill that hallowness... that those who had nothing could obtain with ease, in a breath, in a blink.

Fantastic. I love the detail you put into it - his expression, the horns...I can almost ..feel an uprising of inspiration from just gazing at this picture. I surely envy your talent to express your morbidity, your beautiful and well created characters make me smile. I love you, in a perverted, sick-o, platonic way. :heart:

-~Sorry for the Rant~-

Personally, I believe America's school systems suck ass, and from experience speaking. My school held an assembly about school shootings back in March, saying that they *would* bring a crack down on the causes of said school shootings. This was my senior year and I knew of at least fifteen kids who went to report the bullying - they were denied because of insignificant evidence supporting their 'accusations' against other students, and from one student on occasion, a teacher.

Bullying is a main cause for kids - who usually have no true acts of violence, are usually the quiet ones - shooting up the schools. In their large speeches, they preached that they would fix it, and insure it wouldn't continue.

I've been bullied since preschool, and I can understand how irritating it can be, how inflicting it is, and how much it pushes a kid into the corner. I've also been diagnosed with Bi-polar manic depression on a second level. I wanted to shoot up my school with my dad's hunting rifle, but my friend coaxed me to a calm level. I was experiencing a rage mood-swing - but, that wouldn't have been the excuse if I had done it, and caught short of killing a few idiots.

Cho Seung had a mental illness, as well. He got inspiration to take the action of shooting up V-Tech from a movie, he even took pictures of himself posed as a character from the Koren film {last I heard, that is}.

Simply put, to each their own on how they feel and all that snazzy stuff. I'm not effected by loss of life, if that makes me a heartless son of a bitch lacking significant morals in normal society, fine with me. I know I am fucked up, and I am proud about it. :aww:

REALLY interesting piece here. I love this... most people would be too disgusted with him to even draw the guy, and feel it'd be like praising him for what he did. I admire you for drawing this.
Those are good questions, though. I don't even know how to anwer them correctly
also, fav'd

As the spark of conversation has proven, this is a great work. It invokes emotional response and presents many questions in a very succinct way.

The style and imagery are outstanding.

Great work. A little disturbing, but in a good way.

why is it that if theres concentrated murder in the states, it's a tragedy, but if theres concentrated murder in.. lets say.. sierra lieone, where child soldiers are killed everyday, and families are forced to watch each other die, it's 'how life goes'?

great image.

this man caused us so much grief. I'm from UCLA, and all the way here, we felt the impact. I've met students here who had close ties to the victims and it greatly saddens me that Cho did what he did. True, he was sort of an enigma, and true, that the school could have handled it much better than it actually did (i am greatly disappointed in the handling of the situation), but still, there were many outlets he could have taken. It shouldn't have ended up this way.
