Here is my Mouth, it sure was a big mouth and a big task  :P .  Love learning all the intricacies of shadings and tonal values. Sure I will get there in the end..or is there ever an end  :)

the mouth was huge, I agree, but it allowed us to add all these lovely shadings and details, so was worth the time it took to draw.

Your shadings are perfect :congrats: :cloud9:

Fi,

The center of the teeth and the center of the lips do not line up - Check the reference.

Good color on the teeth.

Here is my rendering of the mouth. It was quite a strong lesson in creating shape and form with tonal values. It was surprising to me how few found lines are in this drawing. As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.

Kathy,

Nice shine.  Nice color. Good tonal value. Teeth are well shaped.

I think you have the center of the lips over too far.  The two largest teeth seem to be the middle ones.  Hmmm... then the nose would be over too far, too.  Recheck your reference photo and see which is correct.

Isn't it fun to learn to do this!

 :thankyou: Thank you Mea.

I had to back and check on the placement of the lips and teeth. They are as the reference photo shows. It is the angle of the photo or it could be the way the subject is smiling. As I look at my drawing, I could possibly soften or gently lighten the edge of the upper lip to give more of thelook of stretching in the smile.
