STEP 1. A lot of novice artists make mistakes when it comes to drawing the side view of a mouth. In this nifty diagram, I show you a few pointers on how to make an accurate looking mouth. 1. The line of the upper lip DOES NOT cover the entire inner arch (like shown to the left). 2. A divide in the mouth would be essential to creating a believable one. 3. Same as #1   STEP 2. 1. Like normal mouths, the upper lip conjoins with the edge of the lower lips, therefore merging outwards to a piece of flesh that molds into the cheeks. This indicates the lift of the cheek. 2. A cupid's bow is essential to a realistic mouth. 3. All lips have a dip in the middle.   STEP 3. Male lips are much thinner than a female's.   STEP 4. Lets begin shall we? Start by making three lines for three sets of mouths.   STEP 5. Once you have the lines drawn out, you are ready to start adding some shapes. Start with the mouth to the left. Draw the top part of the lip like so. Next, draw the arched lines for the two other mouths.   STEP 6. Now you can start drawing out the shapes of each lip that will eventually be the mouths. For the mouth to the left, you will need to draw out the hint of a chin. The mouth on the bottom right is a male mouth. You will also need to draw in the cupids bow above the arch of the lips.   STEP 7. For your last drawing step, all you need to do is draw out the shapes of the lips like you see here. This is mainly the bottom lips, and the lip lines for the mouth to the left. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 8. Here is what your drawing looks like when all is said and done. Now you can draw mouths on your favorite character creations.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
