My favorite part to draw
, i love plump shiny lips regardless of gender.
If you like my style feel free to reference the mouths or colours ^^!
There really is no right or wrong style but there are a few guide lines when drawing lips. The upper lip generally juts out a little bit over the bottom lip and requires a highlight on the top part of the lip and the rest is shadowed and darker than the lower lip. The bottom lip needs a highlight on the center as this part stick out the most. The corners of the mouth also need a highlight on the bottom edge on the bottom lip. Lips come in many different shapes and colours. They also differ a bit between genders though men can still have plump full lips and women can still have thin lips. Though generally mens lips are thinner and longer while female lips of softer and fuller.
lips are also textured with tiny soft ridges instead of being completely smooth if your doing realism. This is because the lip stretches when the mouth is opened or when pulling certain expressions and needs a degree of elasticity.
hope this is helpful and feedback or criticism is always welcome
I will be making a few more (hands, noses, and maybe hair or colourpicking/colour correction.)
