How to Draw Manga Mouths

February 11, 2012

So I’ve uploaded another tutorial and this is a pretty basic one on how to draw manga mouths! It shows different styles on how to draw open and closed mouths, lips, and teeth!

Extra tips:
-Try looking up your favorite manga artist and seeing how they draw mouths! Its really very stylized from artist to artist
-Whether the teeth show up or not (if you’re drawing them) depending on the angle, camera angles from below show the upper row while angles from above show the bottom row of teeth. ^^
-You can go and draw an outline for the whole lip if you want, this is largely up to your style! The way I drew them is only a suggestion so please be aware that there is no rule to them.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask!
Good luck and get drawing!

  1. Could you please do a tutorial on how light hits the character and which parts to shade darker than others? I like drawing my own pictures, but I can’t get the light shading down and I don’t know how to do it… >_< Thanks for the tutorials!

  2. I think then you should start with learning the basics of shading (highlights, mid tones, dark tones, reflection light, shadow) a.k.a that infamous picture of the sphere..

    Also to know how to shade in a way to give form to human bodies/clothes you have know the shape of them example

  3. Thank you very much! I’ll do that. :)


  5. I’ve seen others comment on how they would like to see how to draw wet hair and/or wet clothes as if they were in the rain. I think that would be cool to see a tutorial on! Maybe even a tutorial on how to draw different clothes?

  6. I would do a tutorial on wet clothes but I don’t really know how to draw it xD;; I mean I’ve tried before but I’m not really used to it enough to do a tutorial on it

    haha I guess i’m not very confident to do tutorials on things I’m not knowledgeable on..

  7. Could you please do a tutorial on how to draw feet and shoes? I’m having a lot of trouble on angles and proportioning it with my legs.

  8. I would except I kinda suck at them. Thankfully there are lots of tutorials online that I’m sure would do better than I would OTL

  9. Oh that’s okay! ^^
    Thank you for your help anyways!
