As opposed to the upward-lifted features in the happy face, the features in this drawing are pulled downward.
Start by drawing 4 points for the eyes.
Then mark the location of the nose and mouth.
The outlines of the eyes here are not rounded or even curved, but remain closed.
There is also a break in the upper eye line, drawn like so.
Draw the eyes.
The eyebrows are also drawn downward.
The nose isn't affected by this expression.
The features of the mouth also curve downward.
Now, let’s put the finishing touches on the eyes. Tears flow on each side to emphasize sadness.
