Drawing cartoon lips: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Around 60% of women are using lipstick every day.
  • Lip augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery among women.
  • Lips don't really have their own muscles. They are considered being part of the facial expression.

Step 1

Knowing how to draw good looking lips is not really difficult. Lips can be separated in two parts: the upper lip (1) and the lower lip (3). They are joined by what we call the commissure of lips of mouth (2). Such a long word for such a small part of the body! Let's see how we can extract the shapes of our lips.

Step 2

Lips are basically four irregular lines that have the same starting anchor point and the same ending anchor point. Notice how the lower lip is ticker than the upper lip. You can draw the upper lip as if you were drawing a heart. But of course, this one will be thinner and wider than a real heart shape.

Step 3

Our 4 step example is really simple. Start by drawing an oval to get an idea of the general shape of your lips. Then, draw the outline by working the top of the upper lip and each end of your shape. You can add a thick line in the middle of your lips to form the mouth. Add some colors to complete your creation.

Step 4

Drawing lips can be pretty easy if you wish! It can be drawn with a simple line (6), three lines (4) or in a more cartoonish style (3). You can go for something a little more visually attractive by drawing realistic lips (2) (1) (5). Have fun!
