Well now it's time to do something that is full of giggles and laughs. This next lesson will teach you guys "how to draw smiles", step by step. This is not that different than following the several mouth tutorials that I have on the site. What this submission is supposed to do is teach folks how to draw a proper smile on any type of figure whether it be a chibi, anime, or regular person. I had fun making this tutorial because I used some of the mouths that many of my drawings have. This is a well rounded lesson that is filled with different tips, tricks, and techniques to making something out of nothing. Have fun with teaching yourself how to draw smiles because I know you will.
