It’s All About the Lips
When drawing either figure or portrait, I usually give my girls little heart shaped lips, and a soft oval to heart shaped face. I went through a phase of mimicking anime drawings, and my focus had always been on the eyes and very little on the nose or lips.
With this in mind, I thought I would try something different; starting with a full set of lips I drew a face around them. I really like how this portrait has turn out with the large lips and slender high cheek bones. This is a picture of an exotic beauty that I didn’t know I had in me.
