The mouth can be tricky, but once you've learned this tip, you'll stop drawing lips that hang way too low, look weirdly small, or take up half the face. I hate to ever ask for help or anything for that matter.
Thanks for your comment Tommi. My question to you is how do i keep encouraging her when she comes to that moment when nothing works and you cant get those lines to find that spot been there myself and thus putting down the pen and letting it simmer for a while?
Into portraits right now, but hair is kicking my butt, and making me wanna pull mine out…..
Well described post! The hairline is typically about a quarter to a third of the way from the top of the head to the eyebrows — unless you're Sir Patrick Stewart, in which case it's behind the top of your head.
I have never seen such realistic lips with such simple steps. I would be honored: Drawing Facial Features. Thanks sooooooooooooooooooooooo Muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!.
Hi Haniya, please feel free to send me your drawing via the contact page. Now trying to learn as much as possible and having lots of fun.
Plus, your articles are very clear. This really helped me with my portrait of a girl crying.
Learn to draw accurate facial expressions for more powerful portraits. Nowadays, I just accept that today is not my day and I need to give myself a little break. I like how you can adjust the lips to make them more full or thinner with ease and without all the extra smudges. Then draw another line across the face, at around the halfway point between the eyes and the bottom of the jaw. You'll want to bring the jawline out. Heads aren't perfect circles, and they aren't perfect ovals either.
I might send you some of the artwork…. You can change the size of the lips by moving the horizontal line up to make the upper lip thin or down to make to make the upper lip thicker.
