do male lips and female lips differ in ways , or does it really just depend on the facial structure or the lips themselves?

I like drawing faces. Then this guide comes along giving me anxiety, like "you've been drawing lips wrong..."

Honestly, I love drawing lips the most. But it can be a pain when they're smiling or scowling, or even just still.

This, this guide will save me. Lips will soon pucker to give or** services. Thank you.

Am I the only one who broke out laughing when I saw " Lips are not flat, add those curves. "? Really awesome help though, I really suck at drawing lips and overall a whole face, so this would help me practice drawing lips later! Thanks!

Amazing-- thank you so much for producing this. On the infrequent occasions I braved drawing a face, the lips looked exactly like your "lips are not flat" example. This is the first time I've seen a reference that made me understand the shapes, and why I wasn't able to reproduce them before.
