Alright folks, in this clip I'm going to teach you how to draw a man's lips. Now I know that this can be sort of difficult because in drawing lips in general, it's kind of hard to capture what a man's lips might look like as opposed to a woman's. You sometimes have a hard time drawing the difference because lips, well they look like lips and you don't want a man and a women's lips to end up looking the same. It kind of ruins the look that you're going for, I know. A lot of times when people are drawing a man's lips they end up drawing something like this. And what that does is that just kind of makes your man look a little bit on the feminine side. The best thing to do is to not draw full lips when you're drawing a man. The best thing to do is to start with the lower lip, come in and draw just a little definition beneath that. That's the lower lip right there. And that's really oftentimes all you need to do. The only other thing I could think of would be to add maybe a little bit of a line connected the nostrils to the lower lip just to show you know, that's the part of the man's upper there. that's the lower lip. What this just did is it kind of gave him more of a masculine expression in the face as opposed to this over here where we have a clearly defined upper lip, which really kind of takes away from the you know, the masculinity of the particular face. So, bottom line, when you're drawing a man's lips, unless it is an extreme close up where it's supposed to be super detailed, try and keep it a little bit more you know, just basic. Give him a line, a little bit of a bump underneath and that's really all you have to do to sell the fact that this is a man and these are man's lips.
