How to draw lips

How to draw lips (mouth): girl, women, lady. Realistic lips tutorial step by step.

There is a request so here is goes. I don't usually study individual part of the body, but it's good to observe and really observe how lips place, form and behave. I usually place them into the context. Remember, when you put the individual piece in the context, things change and when lighting comes in to play, you will have to paint or draw according to the light source and what you really see (shape and form), not what you know. *Mouth and lips may no longer look like what it is in some context, you will just have to illustrate what you really see and try to capture the shape and value, instead of trying to draw a mouth or lips.

This tutorial on lips demonstrates as if the light comes directly above and in front of her face or lips. If the light changes direction, it will be drawn and render differently. After all this is just a basic study tutorial. Have fun!
