Thunderstorm by Rakugaki-otoko Thunderstorm by Rakugaki-otoko
I don't know how many people know it, but I'm terrified of thunder. I don't know what it is. I'm not even afraid of lightning, it's the thunder that puts me on edge. sometimes so much that I feel like just sitting in the middle of the room and waiting until it's over. It might even be a phobia, I don't know.
This past few days has been pretty bad. thunder woke me up in the morning, and then we had a severe thunderstorm tonight with a tornado watch.

I can't describe what emotions I was feeling, so I decided to draw a picture to keep my mind off of it.
This picture looks different because it wasn't drawn using my mind. I ran off of feelings to draw it.

I tried to draw like Maki even more than usual in this particular picture. Thinking of her, helped me stay calm, I guess. I also think seeing some of her more heartfelt pictures helped me to do it as well.

I've got to stop macking on her in every deviation I submit...

Drawn in dA Muro in about an hour

I'll admit, the loud noise is startling, but for some reason I get over it while my parents freak out.
Meanwhile, I'm afraid of things that I don't know about (like wild foreign animals). I think it has to do with me not knowing how to deal with the situation.

Wow, great job on the expression.

I'm not usually so afraid of thunder myself, though I do kinda get a bit freaked out if I'm out in the open. One time though when on vacation though, we were in a park, the weather was good, but in the horizon there came this huge dark cloud. We didn't worry much about it, but very suddenly it were upon us and that was quite the terrifying experience, both heavy wind and thunder. So we hurried into a kiosk nearby and waited until the weather had settled. Man, that kiosk got crowded xP.
When the cloud had passed us, after maybe a 10 - 20 minutes or so, there were branches and stuff everywhere, and some trees had been hit by the lightning and fallen over and stuff.
That's probably the most scary experience I've had with thunder.

I've never been scared of it, but that's probably because those storms are so common here that you may as well not notice them.

maybe, it doesn't storm too often where I live though. So when it does, it's pretty bad
