How To Draw Lips

how to draw lips

This tutorial will teach you how to draw lips for male characters. Unlike female lips, you want the upper lips on males to be thin.

1. Start from the middle and be sure to make the indentation between the upper lip a gradual slope, not pointed.
2. Now draw the other half and make it symmetrical. If you're having trouble with this, practice making just one half of the upper lip with smooth strokes until you get it right. Then practice drawing both sides with the same slope and length. When drawing the middle line (the line between the lips), make it meet the upper lip at the edges, coming to a thin line.
3. The bottom lip curves up in the middle, and shouldn't touch the upper lip. Make a shadow in the center under the bottom lip, and you're done.
