If tears left scars... by DestinyBlue If tears left scars... by DestinyBlue

It would be hard to hide behind a smile...

Most of time time no one sees you cry, you can wipe the tears away and carry on like you're fine. Just wondered what it would be like if tears left physical scars on you. Awful I suppose, as then everyone would know... but perhaps then you might get the support you needed. What would you do if you saw this girl...?
I imagine sad tear scars would fade over time, and happy tears would restore the skin like new :)

Yep, another piece of mine about what we show and what we hide. Things are much better for me now thanks, although what I've gone through has given me new perspectives I'm keen to get out of me and into my art. Hope this one isn't to dark or sad a drawing, just a concept I wanted to express :) Explored a bit more shading with an anime style face, similar to my Last Piece by DestinyBlue piece; was very fun to colour, think I probably need to push shadows deeper and loosen up without being scruffy XD

Peace, love and inner strength,

I don't want people to know that I've been crying because then one question would lead to another. That's why I try to cry while in the shower,so then no one sees my blotchy face and knows

you are really great at painting. I love every painting I have seen from you. :)
marchingangel123 Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student Artist
Hey! So I love your art and I've been following you for a while, but recently I have been super depressed and basically I wanted to say that your art really gives depression a visual besides scars and used tissues. Thank you for what you do it helps a lot of people.

If tears actually left scars... I would have a lot... I admit I might have quit a lot... If that would happen

All of them are amazing, it's like you can feel the drawings not just look at them. 
OhHoNo Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The concepts for your portraits are amazingly creative and unique, keep up the excellent work!

I really like this one, it speaks to me. The way you drew the eyes, the shape, the glassy watery effect, really shows the pain that this little girl is suffering. Very good job at conveying emotion with this piece.
vivoju Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2015  New Deviant
so good. I can feel the pain

How much time spend you to draw something like this?:0

Hi, I am Teddy. Once you read this you
cannot get out. Finish reading this
until it is done! As I said, I am
Teddy. I am 7 years old. I have no eyes
and blood all over my face. I am dead.
If you don't send this to at least 12
people I will come to your house at
midnight and I'll hide under your bed.
When you're asleep, I'll kill you.
Don't believe me?"no"
Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?
Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.
Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.
0 people- You will die tonight
1-6 people- you will be injured
7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life
12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortune

And then they were rearranging the lady's for consumption. On that particular night, they served their heads to the guests. Each lady had her head cut off, the top of her skull removed, filled with snails and a special wine sauce, and served to the aristocracy pounding their tables with knives chanting,"food! food! food!" One young woman stood up and she was crying these tears that were burning her eyes like a fire from Heaven. No more atrocity. No more living like this. No more feeding off the trust of the helpless. No more taking what does not belong to us. No more throwing up after I force myself to eat food for you to like me and accept me to be in your group because I'm ashamed to be alone and believe in myself because nobody is saying anything they should about this. I am the only one of all of you all. That's like being the last of a people that once lived here before you arrived.

I feel like this girl is me because I have pink hair blue eyes and mixed skin and my tears did leave scars ✖ ✖

Wailore Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2015  Student General Artist
Okay, I'll feed it to my selkie.
That was random.
Probably because it's Midnight.

wheatleykawaii Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2015  Student Digital Artist
this has got to be the most amazing piece of artwork,wow just imagine that but... im sure lots of people would have scars on their faces because a lot of people are depressed and such. Either way this is such a great idea and this would help people notice that not everyone is happy, like me.

Gorgeous piece, lovely idea! Thank God it's not true though, or else my face would be covered in scars!

I used to cry a lot when I was little. It would suck if the scars were permanent or my whole face would be a scar by now. :P
