How to draw lips from the side
Overbite, Normal Bite, and Underbite are the three examples provided in this tutorial; however, instead of drawing all three lips at the same time, please choose only one to follow.
Step 5: Draw the top lip
Draw a curve from the top left corner of the triangle to the bottom right corner of the triangle. This curve can roughly follow the shape of the triangle, jut out, or be drawn well inside the boundaries, depending on your preference.
Step 7: Draw the bottom lip
Start with the top left corner of the triangle and wrap it up until it touches the top lip, then work your way down to the bottom right corner using the same technique as the center part of the rhombus.
Step 8: Draw the upper and lower lip
For underbites, draw the lower lip/chin, making sure the curve is less pronounced. The bottom set of teeth pushes the bottom/lower lip forward, reducing a lot of curvature. Draw the upper lip, taking care not to extend your line too far.
Step 10: Add contour lines
Lay down your contour lines with a sharp HB pencil, and if the graphite is too dark, use a kneaded eraser to pick up 1 layer of graphite from your drawing.
Step 11: Shade the lips
Start building up more contour lines along the top and bottom of your lips for maximum coverage, using your HB, 2B, and 4B pencils to create a perfect line along the top and bottom of your lips for maximum coverage.
Step 12: Shade the skin
Darlene founded RapidFireArt (RFA) in 2013 with the goal of sharing simple yet detailed drawing tutorials with other artists on the internet. I used a blunt HB pencil to build up layers and layers of circles around the lips for this tutorial.
