i’ve had more than one anon asking about lips and i’ve tried to do a little tutorial before without posting it simply because i feel like my mouths aren’t really that special. they are always really quick and not super detailed, but i tried to put something together anyway! as always this is not a depiction of how you best draw mouths or how you should paint them, this style is just how i draw them. 

and of course, i added some examples. i use this method almost everytime painting lips these days.

Hey so I know that you probably get a lot of questions about how do your art, but I was wondering how you do your lips and lower face? I have a lot of problems with that on people and was wondering if you had any tips. Your art is wonderful, and has gotten me to get back into drawing myself! Thanks so much for everything!

I’m always tempted to make a tutorial for the best mouth I know how to do, but you’re probably more interested in the mouths I usually make, right? I’ll try to cover the two usual ones I do here: the heart-shaped mouth I use for Jim and the sharky smile for Seb. (I hope that’s what you meant, because I don’t draw actual lips very often!)

You’ve probably seen them before, but I’ll also link one of the previous face tutorials I’ve done because it’s helpful to see the structures beneath to give you an idea of where things go. And also there was a really good polararts tutorial that probably explains better than me, but at least I’ve got gifs…

MY Chibi Tutorial PART I - HEADS

Here’s an example of one of my BIGBANG fanarts that shows the most expressions:

~ PRACTICE ~

Now that we’re done with the first part that deals with ‘Heads and Expressions,’ are you ready for some practice? I’ve thought long an hard about what to make the first assignment and I came across the perfect image!

Yup… Cha Hakyeon/N !! You don’t need to illustrate every single one of these expressions because it can be hard especially since I don’t want you guys drawing hands or bodies yet. Just the FACE :D Try your best (I especially want to see the ??? expression though haha)

Some References for Expressions:

You can do so much just practicing Expressions. So have fun with it until I release the next part. Part II of my Tutorial will be focused on BODY & PROPORTIONS

Sorry this is so scribbly, didn’t have much time to go into a lot of detail but these are just a few tips I could come up with! Mouths are tricky since it’s all about drawings negative space as well as positive. Best to learn through observation and real life examples first before diving into cartoon mouths and having fun with it, in my opinion! Thanks for the ask friend and hope this helps somewhat!!
