Step 3.

Draw in the partially closed saddened eyes. Be sure that the lashes are long, thick and very dark. Draw and color in the eyebrows, then draw in or color the lips. Define the face and nose, then proceed to step four.

Description: Here is a drawing concept that I am very proud of and I think it's because of how beautiful the face is and the meaning behind the art. First, this tutorial will show you how I drew a perception of what it would be like if I were drowning in my tears. Sometimes life is hard on your soul making almost impossible to come out of the torment that you have been going through even when you are giving it all you got. When the struggle keeping you drowning in water, you tend to cry because of all the frustration and confusion overwhelms you. I had a lot of fun with this drawing, and I do hope that you find drowning in my tears therapeutic to recreate.
