Tutorial on how to draw human mouth

with 13 comments

For the past few months, I have posted some useful material that I have gathered from Deviantart that shows you how to draw a human figure, human eyes and hand. This time I will share one more collection of tutorials, guide and references on how to draw human mouth.

Every human has a very unique lips shape and this makes drawing a mouth tricky. Lips or the mouth shape that you draw does effect the personality of the character. Observe the mouth shape and movement of the lips when your friends is talking is a good exercise to let you understand more of the angle and the lips shape.

Below is few basic tips that you can refer when drawing mouth. 

  • Female lips usually are fuller than a male lips.
  • Lips tend to get thicker when the mouth puckers up. For example when giving a kiss.
  • The upper lip is usually thinner and more protruding than the lower.
  • Finish drawing the lips first only come to teeth. Lightly sketch the gum shape and not too obvious to show each line or gap and every tooth.

      • I was happy for your response. My english is not so good, but I can write many things because I study. I’m enjoying english about 2 years ago. If you have a bit of time and you want to speak a little I would like to know your e-mail adress. I like to speak with artists and I always did it when I have time.
        Again, your work here was veeeeeery good. I wish luck for you.
