Drawing cartoon lips: some fun facts before starting sketching!

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
