Hello, my name is David Lamplugh and I work for Asel Art Supplies in Austin, Texas. I'm here today to answer the question, "how do you draw vampire lips?" Now, I think the main thing on vampire lips and vampire teeth that go underneath them is that these teeth grow and stretch the lips in certain areas. They're canines, based on canines teeth, those are the teeth that become vampire-like and pointed in vampire movies. And they will bend or stretch the lips out at that point. It always looks uncomfortable to have vampire teeth because it stretches the lips and it misshapes the gums, so you want to have little, you want to make room for those teeth and have lips being stretched out by them. Now, what we got here, we're establishing the lips. For me, because this guy is kind of the Nosferatu variety, the scary vampire, I'm going to make the lips thin. If you're making, if you're drawing a sexy vampiress, or like that dude from Twilight or something like that, you'll probably want to make the lips full. The dripping blood part is going to get in here. I'm going to do spatters of blood, he has just fed. The lips on my vampire are almost going to be black, in reflection there's a couple highlights, but he has just chowed down, and you're next. And he needs a napkin, that's for sure. OK, so how toothy to make the mouth is really kind of up to you. I think there's something like 26 teeth in the human mouth, but you know, I didn't check that out for sure so stop clicking on your email, I won't respond. I make vampire teeth kind of all jagged, I think it looks better to have a threatening mouth, almost like broken glass in there. Now, this opening the mouth like this is going to affect other muscles on the face. See that I can see right there, under the cheek, which this section right here is connected to. So, skin kind of droops down here. This guy kind of resembles the Joker as well as a vampire, which is bonus. And, make the jaw muscular, I would imagine, because he can bight your hand off. And that is how you draw vampire lips.
