Hey. I’m gonna break down how to draw a Black/African/Dark Skinned person’s lips.
Hello! In celebration of a new year, I’m gonna show all of you a tip how to draw lips for Black/African/Dark Skinned people.
If you’re drawing a black/dark skinned person, the top lip is a slight step above or below their actual skin tone while the bottom lip can range from a faded pink to brown.
Black/African men’s and women’s lip lean towards “nude/palm of the hand” makeup color. Some cases it’s pink but everyone’s lip color varies from pink to brown. In my experience of going outside my house, the darker the person, the pinker the bottom lip is while the lighter brown skin lips will be closer to their actual skin tone.
Another note is that the pink /brown tone on the bottom of the lip is near the slit of the mouth, not the complete lip like lipstick makeup. Try adding different tones to a lip and blending both top and bottom lips together because everyone’s different! A very good detail to remember.
TL;DR: USE A REFERENCE. GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH DOESN’T BITE! Thank you for your time! Go out and draw them awesome dark skinned characters and people!
I think they forget how they even got in the places they are in now . Like Europe , America , etc
All inhabited by melanated beings until they invaded it and took the land . There’s a reason no one wants you In their country exploiting everything you can get your hands on . Why because you feel like you can , because you are white .
Are there any Africans here that speak an African Language? What African language(s) do you speak? (I appreciate if you reblog so Africans can see this) and people who want to learn/know more about about your language can find you/ask you questions, and you can find who else speaks your language.
