How to Draw Lips for Kids
Moving onto something else that is going to be helpful when drawing a face, I will be attempting to show you guys "how to draw lips for kids", step by step. Lips, like the eyes, are one of the more difficult parts of the face to draw. When I was getting started with face drawing back when I was wee girl, eyes and lips where my trouble areas. The mouths of the faces I tried drawing always seemed to come out looking too stretched, too thin, too low from the nose and somewhat too fat or thick. Don't get me wrong, there are faces that have thin lips and then there are those that have full looking lips. The tutorial that you will be learning from is going to show you the basics to making lips to your liking. I do realize that the lips in this lesson are mainly for females, and that's basically because it is almost always the female lips that we have problems with. If you want me to tweak the tutorial and add a couple tip steps for male lips, just let me know. Otherwise, have fun drawing lips for kids and make sure to leave a comment, rating or both. I have get going because there is more fun coming your way. Peace out people and enjoy!....
Here is a good example of a simple set of lips that can be used for either a girl or a guy. Notice how there is no lip points, just a dip or a notch. This is probably one of the simplest set of lips you could draw besides a single smile.
Here is a quick diagram of how lips should look when drawn from the side view, as well as a 3/4 view. Notice on the side view,the top lip slops out, then comes back in, then rounds downward for the bottom lip. As for the 3/4 lips, the bottom lip has an even flow of motion.
Here is another example on how girls lips look opposed to boy or male lips. Notice how the female lips look fuller and the males lips are thinner and less dramatic.
Let's get started. Start by slowly drawing out the top lip lining. The best way to start is to start at the end. Pick which end you want to start with, and then slowly draw the mounds for to peaks of the lips and move to step five.
You will now draw the middle line for the top lip to complete the top portion. When that is done, draw the beginning part of the bottom lip, and notice how the mouth is open a bit.
Draw the bottom lip like so, and then move to step seven where you will see how the mouth looks when it's all cleaned up and finished.
Here is how the lips look when you are all done. Now you enjoy coloring them in to perfection using a nice girly shade for color.
