How to Draw a Crying Man

Step 1.

Start by drawing the top view and or shape of the man's head.

Step 2.

Next, sketch in the rough lining to form some texture detailing to the scalp like you see here.

Step 3.

We will now draw the hands grasping the sides of the head as the arms and elbows fall to the table or surface like so in a holding position.

Step 4.

Now we will sketch in the shoulders and arms. Be sure that they are nicely shaped and toned. Color in some lining on the shoulders as if they are dripping down.

Step 5.

For added effect and dramatic detailing, color in some darkness inside the hole of the face and arms like you see here. Leave a small white spot for the nose and be sure the lining at the bottom is rough sketched.

Step 6.

Lastly, add some shading to the entire body except the head for intense detailing. We are going for a very dramatic effect so be sure to follow this step perfectly.

Step 7.

Here is how the drawing looks when you are done. You can add some red tears like you seen in my finished colored image, or add something else that's more you.

You want to know what pride looks like when a man cries? Well, you are looking at it now. No one can really picture a man crying, but when they do you can only imagine what kind of pain they had to have endured in order to bring tears to their eyes. This tutorial is going to teach you a simple way to draw a man crying, step by step. I love making concept pieces like this because a lot of emotion and thoughts go into these types of drawings. I was thinking about my grandfather and what he must have felt like to loose everything he loved when he lost my grandmother at such a young age. He was distraught, uncivil and full of pain. When I would go see him on the weekends all I can remember is being in the parlor as he wept to my mother about the loss he felt. The agonizing pain that was flowing through his heart is something I will always remember. Enjoy the tut folks, and let me know what you think.
