How To Draw Lips

So print these drawing activities, look out some pencils and start practicing drawing lips. It’s a relaxing activity and one that helps you develop a new skill.

How Do You Draw Lips Step By Step

Grid method drawing has been done for hundreds of years. Many artists have used the technique, including famous artists.

So how do you draw lips? Well to learn how to sketch lips and mouths easily, simply pick your favorite lips from the ones available here. This isn’t a tutorial on how to draw lips, but instead, you’ll learn by practicing which is a far better way to learn how to do things.

Make sure you get the practice sheets at the bottom of this page as you’ll need to print a few of these for this drawing lesson and our other how to draw activities. We have a massive range of subjects for you to learn to draw and all of them use the same practice sheets.

  1. To draw lips you simply use the empty practice sheet and copy the lips or mouth from the grid guide on to the practice sheet.
  2. It’s best if you use a pencil to sketch the lips faintly at first and then use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. When you’re happy with the outline of the lips or mouth, start doing the details by replicating the lines in each grid square.
  3. When you’ve finished sketching the lips you can draw over it with a pen to finalize and erase any remaining pencil marks.
  4. When you’re done drawing the lips, you can even add color to the lips with your favorite coloring pencils or pens.

TIP: You can simply practice drawing lips directly on the lips activity sheet first before copying to the empty practice sheet. This helps you get familiar with how lips are drawn before you really begin practicing.

The more you practice drawing lips the better you will get and you’ll soon be able to draw lips and mouths without the practice sheet.
