4 Ways to Draw Crying Anime Eyes & Tears
This tutorial shows how to draw four different types of crying anime and manga eyes, as well as a basic example of how to draw a crying face in general. For more tutorials on drawing anime eyes, see How to Draw Different Styles of Anime Heads.
Drawing Anime and Manga Style Eyes on the Head
The placement of anime eyes on the head varies by style, but one good method is to draw the overall shape of the head and then draw a horizontal line directly through the middle of it, spacing the eyes far enough apart to allow for a third eye in the middle.
Drawing Tearing Up Anime & Manga Eyes
Draw small tear drops at the tear ducts towards the inner parts of the eyes, curved inwards and slightly lowered towards the outer part of the eye. Draw eyebrows in a slight upside down curve, with the inner part of the eyebrows raised and the outer part lowered.
Drawing Anime & Manga Eyes With Tears
Draw the tears covering the entire bottom part of each eye using the same directions as the previous example, but make their outlining shapes hang off the edges of the bottom eyelids, as if they’re about to spill out like an anime character’s eyes.
Drawing Crying Anime & Manga Eyes
Draw the eyes more squinted and the brows closer together, then draw the tears running down the cheek from the outer side of the eyes, making sure to draw the stream of tears in a slight curve to fit the shape of the face.
Drawing Bawling Anime Eyes
Draw the brows even closer together to emphasize how tightly they are pressed together, and draw the eyes fully closed in an upside down curve for bawling, upset eyes. Draw the tears in the same pattern as the previous example, but further down the face (you can experiment).
Here are some examples of what it takes to make an anime character cry in various emotional expressions.
