How many tutorials have you found on the web that shows you the ins and outs to drawing anime mouths? Dragoart is definitely a site that has more than one lesson on this very subject. I was thinking about a new tutorial that I could do that would be helpful, and fun at the same time. After careful thought and no ideas in sight, I was lucky enough to get a request to do a lesson on “how to draw anime lips, step by step. One of my favorite parts to this tutorial is the finished colored in image. I really did have a lot of fun making this lesson and if you are one of those people that had trouble with drawing anime or manga lips, have no fear because this tutorial is here. Even though a majority of anime characters don't have a whole lot of shape or contouring to their mouths, they are sometimes created with lips. When you draw that small bump under the mouth line that is essentially a lip. This submission has a lot of tips and examples on how to draw anime lips. If you would like to see another tutorial on something else that is based on anime or manga, just drop me a request and I will fill it as soon as I can. In the mean time have fun with this lesson, and be sure to start using what you just learned on one of your character creations. Adios people and enjoy the drawing day!
