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

If tears left scars, my face would be dreadful. The only thing scar free would be my forehead. Don't even get me started on my neck..

NieEngel Featured By Owner 2 days ago
I love the expression here!

It just says "I´m depressed, I´m sad, I don´t want to speak, I don´t even have the energy to smile" =(

your artwork is amazing.  I'd have many scars if tears caused them.  I think this young lady should never cry, she's too lovely.  Well done though she is truly lovely.

Truly amazing. The emotion is so real. I can't wait for your website to come back up I can't wait to "fund" or contribute to you. Honestly inspirational. First day on deviant art and you've blown me away. First person I will follow.

Your art is amazing :) if tears left scars just from yesterday, my whole face, neck and chest would be scar tissue.
Miss-Astronaut Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2014  Student General Artist
If tears ever left scars... My face and neck would be like I have been through many battles and most of the weapons were aimed at my face. 

Still, very beautiful and inspirational art. :)
kissma2 Featured By Owner Edited Nov 22, 2014
Wow, this is amazing. And I don't just mean beautiful artwork, but it has a meaningful message, because if tears left scars then imagine how many people would have scars on their face from bullying, abuse, assault, and other, closer matters, like your parents getting a divorce, friends hurting you, and feeling like you've disappointed your family.
Doctor-61 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014
i would embrace her and tell her to let it all out. my shoulder would be scared but i would help heal hers.
