How do open snoot??? I have so many problems when it comes to drawing open mouthed critters/expressions!! I just can't wrap my mind around how open snouts work with the skull or the circles I use for the skull anyhow.. Do you have any advice on this??
I’M GONNA TRY MY BEST TO EXPLAIN THIS because, man i feel u but at the same time I know very little about the technical anatomy when it comes to skulls ;;
Let’s do a sorta above ¾ view for this rlly quick, when I start out, I always like to establish one part of the snout at a time, instead of trying to just DIVE RIGHT IN. So I start by putting vague upper muzzle shapes here, just to get the direction goin’
NOW WE GOTTA GIVE THIS THING A LOWER JAW to help keep it symmetrical, I like to pull the lines from the corners of the upper lips. DON’T BE AFRAID TO OVERLAP, OVERLAPPING IS IMPORTANT IN GENERAL BUT ESPECIALLY WHEN DRAWING OPEN MUZZLES LIKE THIS!! See that line that goes from the upper right corner of the lip and through the top half of the muzzle? I basically use that as my guide to keep from pulling the jaw too far out, or too far in. Don’t worry if it looks a bit like they have an underbite either, depending on the angle, perspective will do that..it likes to fuk with ur brain a bit
OKAY NOW we’re bringing back the overlapping line because chins are still hard for me to draw and I change how i do it constantly but this is a good method to get a chin that doesn’t thrust too much outwards or inwards (unless that’s the specific jaw shape you were going for with ur character, then by all means do so!!! ) bring the line from the further corner of the eye, form the cheek, and bring it down (overlapping over the top jaw as we are wont to do) and bring it AROUND TOWN. You see here that it’s kinda boxy and I could probably curve that line some more to give a more slender look but w/e IT WORKS WITH MOST SHAPES
if you’re referring to something like the BND draw I posted recently, it’s pretty much a similar course of action, so let’s use this asshole as an example because his mouth is obnoxiously wide when it’s open
Start off with the upper jaw, again, it’s easier to piece these things together vs trying to shove all the shapes together at once (for me it is anyways)
i’m doing this from profile view this time but you can see the overlapping lines still work!! I roughly places where the otherside of the upper corner of the lip would be on the side we don’t see and used that to help me get an idea of how far down the lower jaw is gonna go~! Don’t worry, it’s gonna look awkward most of the time and it’s a perfect chance to go in and fix the length of the upper/lower jaw before you start adding in deets like the tongue and teeth! <:
there we go!!!! looks a lot less awkward LOL
you can also do something like this if ur feeling kinda toony (it’s really fun, simple yet effective!)
It can work for a lot of different styles, from realism to toony to my stupid doodles i do a lot when being a Serious Artist
™ is just 2 much for me :^)
Because I went through a funk and they sent me such sweet messages and they’re just amazing people in general and I want to thank them for being just the best girls and the best of friends a girl could ask for. I love them and I just want to say thank you guys!
i just love how there was such a stark contrast between jake telling amy he still has feelings for her (”i know you’re with teddy and nothing is going to happen, i just wanted you to know”) vs teddy telling amy he still has feelings for her (”why are you with him” “will you marry me”)
[Magnus and Merle have just shrunk down in the elevator]
Taako: (running around outside the demo) Do you see?! Do you SEE?! Don’t look so stupid now, do I? You tiny bitches! I could eat you!
Justin: Outside the glass you guys can see Taako pretending to be Godzilla like stomping around. Like with little claws.
Justin: Taako looks like he’s trying really hard to open the glass that’s encasing the town.
Clint: What, is there another sandwich inside the glass?
Justin: No, no, he’s not but he’s making a very convincing show of it.
[Justin rolls an 18 for bluffing]
Magnus: Well, Taako’s doing his best, we just have to make it back there. We have to protect Taako!
Justin: By the way, I am not risking my sandwich in any sort of distraction-based activity. I can’t risk it falling onto the ground in this filthy elevator museum. In fact, if I need more than one hand to cast this cantrip, I am out.
