i just have big canine teeth

Hi! So first off I love your art, I've been following you for a while and I love your style! I recently started drawing orcs myself for a project but I'm having a bit of trouble with making their mouths work, to make them expressive around those tusks? Since you're one of my favourite artists and draw orcs on the regular, I was wondering if you had any pointers in this? Thanks!

thanks man!!! tbh the best way i have to visualize how lips work around tusks is just to stick my fingers in my fucking mouth, touching your lower canines w your thumbs or whatever gives a pretty good idea of how lips respond to big protruding teeth ;0 

otherwise if youre goin about teeth the way i do, i guess the main thing to keep in mind is that the lower lip wraps around the tusks and the upper lip rests on top of them !
