How to Draw a Mouth and Lips: Step by Step:

Art Materials Used: 4B pencil, blending stump and/or eraser

1: Draw a line with two gentle bumps either side of its middle, this is the middle line of the lips.

2: Draw the top line with two bumps and a bottom line, as a smooth curve. We now have the basic shape of a mouth.

3: Don’t let the lines touch each other at the corners, it is good to not have points at the corners of a natural mouth, so the lips look like they could move.

4: Partly erase your lines, this is so we can draw realistic lips, where all the edges are gentle.

5: Draw some darker curved details on the centre line of the lips.

6: Add a thin dark shadow under this line.

7: Slowly build up small graded areas of shading, using a dark 4B pencil.

8: Use the side of the pencil to shade a mid-tone on the top lip.

9: Shade some mid-tone along the base of the bottom lip.

10: Start to add some smaller areas of shading, using a graded tone, dark to light, so the mouth looks more realistic.

11: You could smudge any lines that are too heavy with the side of an eraser.

12: You could use a blending stump to smudge the tones too, or an eraser.

13: The aim is to use smudging as a way of drawing, to blend the tone you have.

14: Repeat this process by drawing more tone and then blending the tone.

15: Use the side of a pencil to draw a faint tone of shading on the skin around the lips.

16: Use a blending stump or eraser to soften the shading on the mouth.

17: Draw some fine lines and blur the lip edges with your finger.
