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,
~Blue x

This is so emotive and so beautiful at a time...  Sorrow tears, joy tears... Both of them come from heart and are part of life: pure feeling in a drop that can leave or remove scars... this is so nice, DestinyBlue!

Great work on the facial expression. The eyes and mouth truly are the most expressive parts of the human body.

In real life, tears do leave scars, where no-one can see them of course. I'm not being metaphorical. I do a lot of crying and it's so bad, the insides of my eyelids sting, they have grown raw. But don't pity me, I am an emotional wreck and frankly, having these scars means I have survived through more than the person you see on the street.

My tears are usually dry. When I feel sad I don’t cry however much I want to. Sometimes I think that means I’m not sad enough and that makes me feel worse. Because I want to cry even if no one else sees it.

Apart from a particularly sad moment, the only time I’m really brought to tears is when listening to certain music. It’s not pop or nostalgia; actually it’s more gentle and soulful. Does that seem typical? Still, it’s my own special world that I treasure.

If tears left scars...

My face would be so, so full of them I could not even see anymore. 

That was depressing, but it is sort of true.

Since I am a heartless ass, I would only have one scar and it would be the one that left my eye when I was born, or else I would not be able to breathe

Yeah, it sounds sad, but during our life almost all of us cry a lot. Hmm...If we actually made a pool of them, it would be pretty big for so little tears each time.

My comment is sarcastic, as many teens in first world countries getting endless supplies of expensive emo shit, as well as good care from their parents hate them and choose to think they have "tough problems."

Not all parents are like that. I have the shittiest parent (mom) ever, and a really good dad, and not everybody in developed countries can afford "emo-shit", like me. Just be more careful with your words, in case you have to swallow them.

Your art is beautiful and means so much to me. I have been following you (not stalking :)) you for a long time. The way your drawings speak to people and bring out their emotions is amazing. I hope that your art can be found by amaxing people who can help you spread the amazing tenderness to everyone!

someone copied this concept and won a Scholastics Gold Key. www.schack.org/student-awards-…

heyyy a concept does not necessarily belong to one and only one person
if we could sue for every stolen idea, then a lot of hollywood, shops, advertising agencies and even fellow artists will be doomed
i think megan did a p good job in her artwork actually! while concepts are same, she at least didnt steal the artwork completely )

That's true - coming up with an "original" idea is actually quite hard.
However, Megan's entry was barely a variation on the original concept, and as Scholastics winners tend not to win based on not only skill, but originality of the concept itself, I believe it's unfair to other competitors as she did not come up with it herself.
There was an incident a few years ago when a national Scholastic's winner had their title and prizes revoked for copying a conceptual piece from another artist on dA - A statement on the selfishness of humankind, with a woman holding a dead bird with stolen wings attached to her back. While the competitor didn't trace, the concept was obviously stolen as they made no effort to alter the original concept.
Megan's entry demonstrates enough skill and variation that I believe she should not have the award revoked, but I do not believe she deserved it either.
