Hey, what's up? It's Chris again and today we're going to be learning how to draw a tear. So, first things first let's just draw a person's eye just to give you an idea well you know what tears are but let's just draw a person's eye. Okay, there we've got the person's eye. Now a tear usually starts off with a point at the top so we're going to draw a line coming down and another line coming down on the other side, sort of like a tent except when you get around here, you round it off, boop, and that's a tear. So one more time, we're going to come down and bring the point, a line on the other side, bring it around and connect it. There. Now, I'm going to give you a sad tear, same thing. Here's the point, a line down and there's a circle to close it off. See it? It's easy. You can't have all sad tears so here's one big happy tear. Here's the point and it closes off in a circle. Now to give some dimension to it, you could take white and you can draw a line down the side and a little dot there. A line down the side, dot. Line down the side, dot, same thing. Tears of joy. So don't cry about it, draw it. Here's your tear and you can trail them and finally, hey, catch them in a bucket. I'm Chris and don't be so sad because this is how you draw a tear.
