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

In a way I agree because people are scared of scars and stuff, although in a way I would comfort her instead of run because we all cry and whatever it is she cries about left scars. I would run if I didn't know what it's like to be depressed; but since I know, I would risk everything to make her feel better. Agree?

The way you phrase stuff makes you sound like a high-class person, but I get what you're saying.
I do agree that I would try to comfort her.

Haha thank you, I want to be an author so I try to use extreme detail. xD
