"Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water. It will make ripples throughout the entire pond." - Bryan Matteo

Would you like to learn how to draw water drops? From raindrops to teardrops, we've got the step-by-step instructions you need.

You'll see water droplets like the ones in this drawing tutorial anytime you make a splash - whether you are jumping in a puddle or washing your hands!

Did you know? Raindrops, like the one pictured, form from even smaller drops of water. Energy from the sun causes water vapor to rise from oceans and other bodies of water.

These droplets are so tiny that they float in the air. Cold air makes these droplets condense, or stick together. The larger, heavier drops then fall to the ground as rain.

The ripples made by the drop of water are also used as a metaphor. The Oxford Dictionary defines the ripple effect as "the continuing and spreading results of an event or action."

This happens in science, as when the chaos theory is used to help predict the weather. It also happens in human interactions - what we do affects other people.
