Steps For Drawing Lips

Step 1

The very first part of the lips that we will draw is that indent at the top of the lips. If you feel your own lips just below your nose, there’s a slight curve.

Draw that indent by sketching out a short curved line as such.

Step 2

Now we’ll draw the top lip. You can do this by extending either side of that curved line from step 1 and make both sides more curved at the top but then tilts down.

Connect the first line by drawing a second line as such. However, towards the middle, you’ll want to draw a line that curves inwards instead.
