How to Draw Anime Mouths

Artist: g_man777 / October 1, 2008

Step 1.

First, start with the top lip, which I've broken into two steps. You want to be careful not to make it curve too much here, but you also don't want it to be straight.

Step 2.

Now finish the top lip by adding the side. Again, slight curve.

Step 3.

Now add in the bottom lip. You want it to run parallel with the top lip and keep it's ends about the same distance away from the top lip.

Step 4.

Now finish it off by adding the teeth, with yet another slight curve. And you don't want the teeth to be drawn at the far side of the mouth. Remember lips stick out from the teeth a little, so draw the teeth a little before the end of the lips.

Step 5.

And don't forget the extra little curve under the bottom lip, because the bottom lip has a definite thickness to it the people expect to see. This concludes my tutorial, let me know if it helps at all.

Description: OK, G_Man777 here with my first tutorial! I've been learning Anime these past few months and I found mouths to be one of the hardest parts, so I've chosen to make a tutorial for anyone who feel the same way. this tutorial will focus on the partially open mouth (Left side, middle), because once you lean it, you've learned them all.
