FAQ: How To Draw Realistic Lips For Beginners?

How to draw lips – 10 easy steps

I came up with this method one day after associating a pair of lips with a bow and arrow. For this tutorial, I will be using the following materials: u2013 Mechanical Pencil with 0.5mm HB Ain lead u2013 Derwent Graphic 6B Pencil. u2013 Kneaded Eraser u2013 Blending Stump. u2013 Smooth Bristol Paper

Step 1: Draw a Triangle

Draw a long isosceles triangle with a curve halfway down (similar to a “u”). Draw a straight horizontal line between the “u” and the triangle’s base. See my tutorial on drawing faces for more information on where to place your triangle.

Step 2: Draw a bow

Make a circle shape with an erasable surface to make the outlines for the top lip.

Step 3: Draw the bottom lip

Using the horizontal line as a guide, draw the lips, bottom lip, and mouth opening. If you’re having trouble with this step, click here to watch me draw it step by step on YouTube.

Step 4: Decide on the light direction

Determine where the light source is coming from after erasing the triangle; in this case, the light source is coming from the top right. I’ve outlined the areas I want to highlight as well as added a cast shadow on the left side of the bottom lip.

Step 5: Shade the top and bottom lip

As you can see, there is a dark shadow under the bottom lip that fades on the right side to show that the light source is coming from the upper right.

Step 6: Add lip wrinkles

Create some lip wrinkles with a 0.5mm HB pencil; don’t press too hard or the effect in the next step will be difficult to achieve. Want to learn how to incorporate lip wrinkles in your drawing without making them look unnatural? Try the contour shading technique described in my shading tutorial 🙂

Step 7: Blend the bottom lip

Smooth out the shading on the bottom lip with a blending stump (learn how to use one here), avoiding the areas mentioned in STEP 4. Those areas will make the lips appear more plump and round. You’ll notice that the lip wrinkles gradually blend in with the shading, but they shouldn’t disappear!

Step 8: Clean up highlights

To create the glare effect, go over the lighter areas with the pointed end of a kneaded eraser and clean up the highlights.

Step 10: Touch ups

Using a 6b pencil, darken the shadows in areas such as the outer edges of the lips, under the bottom lip, the wrinkles and the corners of the lips. You can change the size of the lips by moving the horizontal line up (to make the upper lip thin) or down (to make to make the upper lip thicker). Also, adding more glare will make the lips look even more plump. Have any questions or requests? Let me know in the comments! Don’t worry if your drawing doesn’t turn out the way you expected on the first try. Keep going at it and you will understand and grasp each step. It will become much easier! Also, don’t forget to experiment with different triangle shapes and positioning of the guides in STEP 2.
