  • Hey Stan Prokopenko here, welcome to another episode of Proko! You should watch my previous

  • video in which I cover some anatomy and structure of the lips.

  • If you want to look at the reference photo while you watch me draw, just find this post

  • on and it's just below the video.


  • With lips, I start my layins with the landmarks. Find the width and angle of the lips by indicating

  • the corners. Since, she's looking slightly away from us to the left, the center line

  • will curve out and to the left. This will help me find the placement of the top of the

  • tubercle and bottom of the bottom lip.

  • With the landmarks in place, lets think about those squishy little pillows. Remember how

  • in the last video I said there are three at the top and 2 at the bottom? On her, the tubercle

  • is flat and you can barely see it. This is actually quite common. The tubercle is just

  • fatty tissue, so its prominence will vary.

  • The wings on the sides of her lips are very round and easy to see. The two pads on the

  • lower lip are subtle, so the separation is kinda hard to see.


  • When I start shading a drawing I like to first determine the angle from which the light source

  • is coming from. This will help me visualize what values to make each plane. If the plane

  • is facing the light it will be lighter, if its facing away it will be darker, and everything

  • in between. To figure out the direction of the light source I mainly just look at 2 things.

  • First, the cast shadows. The bottom lip is casting a shadow on to the left side of the

  • chin. So, I know that the light source is at the top right. But it's not too far to

  • the right, its very close to center. The other indication of the direction of the light source

  • is the highlight. It's on the right side of the lip, towards the top, same as the light

  • source.

  • So, all the planes that are facing down and to the left, are in shadow.

  • Now, notice how there is actually a Second light source coming directly from the left.

  • This secondary light source isn't as bright as the main light source, and for now I'm

  • going to ignore it. Most of the volume is defined by the main light source, so I'll

  • focus on that first.

  • The side of the top lip face down and are in shadow, but as we get closer to the middle,

  • her top lip gets very round and the top portion actually points up at the light source. So,

  • the core shadow in this case is towards the bottom in the middle, and along the top ridge

  • on the sides.


  • The darkest accents on the lips will almost always be in the corners, along the crease,

  • core shadows, and just under the bottom of the bottom lip. When defining the crease,

  • make sure to think about the overlapping forms and vary your line weight, so it doesn't just

  • look like an outline.


  • The top lip, even though it curves and points up, doesn't curve enough to point directly

  • at the light source, like the bottom lip. So, the entire lit area of the top lip will

  • all be a darker value halftone. With gradations to define the roundness of the squishy little

  • pillows.

  • Add some gradations to define the bottom lip. I want the highlight to be bright and sharp,

  • so I need to make sure the halftones around it are dark enough the make the highlight

  • stand out. Once you start making your halftones dark, double check to make sure that the shadows

  • are significantly darker, so that the halftones don't start looking like shadows.

  • The corners of the lips have a slight gradation, but the bean shape of the nodes, is not very

  • prominent on her.

  • I'll define the plane changes of the region about the top lip. I'm going to take out

  • the cast shadow from the nose. I feel like it would look strange there without a nose

  • casting it. And instead I'll define the planes of the philtrum.

  • The area under the lips will be mostly halftone since these planes face down.

  • Now I'll add that secondary light source and make sure it stays in a supporting role

  • and doesn't become the main character.


  • I'll go through the drawing one more time and do some cleanup work to define things

  • a little better.

  • Alright, so I'm going to be giving this drawing away. If you'd like a chance to

  • win, go to and subscribe to the free mailing list to get occasional updates

  • and be notified of new videos. I'll pick a winner from my email list on October 26,

  • and will post the name of the winner below this video.
