Lips by iiRawrDinosaurii Lips by iiRawrDinosaurii
I was drawing along with this video made by Mark Crilley: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgUBPf…

Honestly? I didn't think it would come out nearly as well as it did. And now I'm flipping out because it came out WAY better than expected. For those of you that don't know I've actually been struggling with lips/mouths a lot recently. And it's been driving me nuts.

But now I KNOW that I can do a good job with them and I really gave myself a huge confidence booster tonight. I showed myself what my talent really is and showed to myself that I can make things the way I want them to turn out, I just have to spend my time going slower with it rather than rushing into it.

Thank you so much! I found that just leaving a screen up of other people drawing has been helping me draw recently.
I could be drawing a completely different style and it would help.
Watching other people do something patiently helps me stay patient, so I usually just let my laptop run through a bunch of videos or have YouTube up on my Wii and have it playing through a bunch on there. c:

Definitely. (:
Helps give me a break from what I'm doing for a few moments, but to still keep art on the brain so I don't fully loose my concentration. c:

Lips, eyes, hands and feet are the death of anyone. I have been practicing them for years and I still have troubles sometimes. But this is awesome. You keep up the good work. I saw some of your studies, keep it up your doing awesome. ~.o

Thanks! Lips are definitely my weakness. xD
I love doing eyes and hands, and their one of my fortes (thankfully!). I have always struggled with lips and noses the most, and I've been slowly working on making them better more and more. And based off Mark Crilley's video that I followed along with when I drew this, I have a new way of drawing lips and think they look so much better now than they did before. (: 

Thank you so much! It really does mean a lot to me. (:

You are welcomed. ^^ And by looking at this I would never know that lips were your weakness! But every artist has their own weakness, something they try to do over and over and over and either stop drawing or mess up a picture they were almost in love with.

Very true. I have had many drawings that I have felt like could have looked a lot better if the lips looked differently. But people still liked the drawings anyways, so it still made me feel good that even with my weakness, people still liked it. (: I've been improving a lot recently, and I've had an insane amount of improvement since I first started drawing.

Nice. Still art. Going to open your own shop?

That's my goal. But my apprenticeship is going to probably consist of a 5 year contract to agree to work under that shop rather than pay money for the apprenticeship.

My brother has been thinking about going into piercing and we wanna open a shop together. Whether he's still going to go into piercing or not, I'm not sure. (:

This looks fantastic. I especially love the shading around the corner of the mouth and the highlights. Great work!

Thank you! I drew this while watching a Mark Crilley tutorial video and he actually explained how to do the corners of the mouth and how to give it a certain small detailing to add an even more powerful look to it. c:
