EDM Challenge #53 Draw Lips


This was an impossible challenge for me because I'm struggling regularly to draw realistic body parts. I couldn't decide how to shade the lips using pen and ink so this page was done with a smudgy 2B pencil.  It will be a long time before I can figure out how to draw an open mouth with exposed teeth.  Preliminary efforts were great dracula look-alikes!  Several of the lips were from magazine photos, one is a self-portait, and the remainder are from photos of my grandchildren (7 months, 13 months, and 2 1/2 years).


Wow, what a great job you did on these lips!

These are great. I like how you've drawn them on the page collectively.

These look great, particularly the side on version. Well done. :o)

NICELY DONE!!!!! Love the shading you've done ... and the bits of face that give the lips such zing!

Beautiful lips, Shirley?? I forget whose blog this is. But those lips are great. I also have trouble doing teeth so you are not alone.
