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 semi-realism in the 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

Yep, and then tears of happiness would make you sad.

If I saw this girl, I would be terrified and run.

Beautiful. If tears left scars, I'd have to wear a mask.

This is such a beautiful piece, as are all of your pieces, however I think the scars are the most beautiful part, as I believe crying does leave scars, just scars that only the person who cried them can see. I find it hard to cry, to release my emotions. I will often get choked up at a sad movie, but never cry. And when I am brought to tears I often only let one or two out, which means my scars are limited however deep and I see them every time I look in the mirror. As always if someone had eyes as beautiful as the eyes you draw I'd find it hard not to be completely and utterly enamored.

If tears left scars, I'd have face-marks like Ulquiorra's second release form...
