Here is one of my favorite drawings that I made yesterday along with a couple others that are very cool indeed. At first I was going to call this lesson a soldier tattoo, but then I got to thinking, it doesn't really look like a tattoo a solider would wear. Having said that, I went ahead and named this drawing lesson "how to draw a crying girl tattoo", step by step. As you can see this girl or woman is crying for her love, crying for her pain, and crying for her loneliness and desires. She has a cigarette in her mouth along with a soldiers helmet. There is also a rose on the side of the helmet with a vine like stem that flows across the base of her neck. The tear runs down her face as she tilts her head back. This crying girl displays a heartache and sorrow that only a military wife or girlfriend can understand. I'm really proud of this concept, and I hope a lot of you are prepared to follow this lesson on drawing a crying girl. Adios folks and have fun with this tut.

A crying girl doesn't weep with her eyes shut. Instead, her eye is slightly closed with the long thick lashes hanging over her bottom lid. Sketch in the crease that forms or shapes the closed eye, then draw the eyebrow.
