30 Day Lip Challenge: Day 9/Child

So… children’s lips are very difficult. Their heads are somewhat shaped differently than adults. There’s more fat in their faces so it looks like their mouths protrude out more. It’s difficult to draw dimples and not make them look like wrinkles. The key thing here I think is the eyes. These don’t really look like children’s lips, but I have a feeling they would if their eyes were there. That seems to be a common theme. Most expression is in the eyes, so I’ve been finding there’s a lot of information missing without them.

30 Day Lip Challenge: Day 7: Studying Vanderpoel.

Here is Day 7: Studying Vanderpoel.

As a kind of Christmas gift to myself, I purchased the book, The Human Figure by John H. Vanderpoel. He goes over how to create the human starting with each individual part of the face all the way until the entire human body. So, today, I was studying his chapter on lips.

I’m really enjoying this book so far. I enjoy Vanderpoel’s style because his figures are all so graceful. Another thing that I like about this book is that in the segments where he writes about the process, he does so in a clear and concise way. As somebody who thinks and feels more in pictures, it’s always refreshing to find writers who put things into words better than I ever could. Certain things just began clicking that I couldn’t quite get just from simply drawing and practicing. Hence, I wrote down notes that I thought were helpful as well as draw the lip studies.
