How to Draw a Mouth


Full, shiny lips are as difficult to draw as they are to have in real life. Getting lips symmetrical can be tricky, but by taking a step-by-step process and using proportion techniques, full, shiny lips can be drawn.

Things You'll Need

  • Drawing pencil
  • Drawing paper
  • Pencil eraser
  • Small tortillion

Drawing Lips

  • Draw a straight line to indicate where the ips should be. You may curve the lines up or down to indicate your expression.

  • Draw a circle in the center with only a slight bit of the circle below the line. Draw secondary circles on the side of, and slightly above the center circle.

  • Draw the lines as show in the image; these lines have formed lips. Follow the four circles when drawing your lines.

  • Draw the "wrinkle lines." These lines give your lips a realistic look. As indicated, the upper parts of the lips should be drawn as curved lines going upward.

  • Take your small tortillion and blend your lines. Use the tortillion to shade. Darken your entire lip line.

  • Finish shading your lips and adding light. Shade underneath your lip to give a three dimensional look. Add light to the top part of the lip.
