Incredible, Paul :hug:

The detail is fantastic, and highly emotive, showcasing the subject matter with a love and devotion to art, that weaves your magic with breathtaking skill! :heart:

You're right, however...children should not cry.

I guess that was the focal (ignore the pun) point of the drawing, the idea that the eye was full of tears, water flowing from it etc. glad that you noticed it - makes it worthwhile :)
