Why don't females in anime have actual full-on lips drawn more often? Not those shades of pink that only show up when a character gets super close to girl, but actual consistent, shapely lips.
Even after almost a decade of following chinese cartoons I still wish it was a thing.
Does you waifu have lips?
Too much to animate
Monogatari does it often. I feel like japan thinks giving lips makes characters look more mature/alluring and thus only use it for sensual scenes or older characters.
Takes time and money.
I like that when its done, its meant to be special and sensual.
Marin had great lips, but then again Brigadoon was a 10/10 anime in general.
Watch more SHAFT
Lips aren't gradient-colored, try again.
>doesn't know what light value is
Everything is a gradient at all times, that is how light works.
Because it usually doesn't end up looking as good. Poorly drawn lips are worse than none at all, and when drawing anime it's best to include only details that have a reason to be there and can be pulled off well. Furthermore, when they're not used in close-ups they generally make it look like the character is wearing lipstick, which is usually not the case.
Now if you want to complain about lazy mouth drawing, sidemouth is a bigger problem than liplessness.
Dammit Shaft, why do you have to give me a lip fetish
Most people don't like them I think. They look unnatural a lot of the times. Erio and the Haganai's have lips
Anime design is based on removing as many details as possible from the face and putting them all in the eyes. It's why noses are nothing more than a speck and a few lines will increase the age of a woman by 20 years.
Pretty much this; if lips are extremely attention grabbing and so even a slight over-application makes your character look like a nigger
Am I the only one having trouble with Exlinks? (it completely disappeared)
>Why don't females
Men have lips too. No reason why women should be the only ones with actual full-on lips drawn.
go away homo
Oh, Jesus Christ.
It isn't homo, it's anatomy. There's nothing wrong or weird with men having lips, look at this pic. Does it look abnormal to you?
That doesn't look like typical anime art at all. It's very far away from normal.
Yeah, it is homo.
You could have picked a mangaka other than Araki to talk about anatomy that isn't homosexual in nature
The Jojo's have lips
Is it homosexual if his men look like women and his women look like men?
Lips look disgusting on anime girls. Just look at how shitty Haganai whores look.
No idea if this is supposed to be a man or a woman, though.
Women wearing makeup in anime always look like whores.
It's because elevens usually don't like big lips, so they often aren't drawn.
A man can't have a thing for nice, plump lips?
Lips drawn on characters from afar look like they're wearing lipstick or makes it look plain ugly.
Up close is sexy.
I don't know why, but I don't really like them.
That one Nobunagun character who kissses everyone has some damn nice lips.
Because anime isnt western garbage
Stop trying to make anime western garbage
Anime will not pander to you because you dont buy shit
Go back to reading comics and watching cartoons
Go back to tumblr
Go back to /co/
Go back to reddit.
What's worse, when they do, it's usually looks like some botoxed shit, such as
It's not a downgrade weeb.
she always have lips
Yes it is.
Having a western pig disgusting art style is a downgrade, normie.
Stop watching the wrong shows. (Yes, it's technically lipstick, but still).
Trying to fit in? Cute.
>not liking dick sucking lips
WHO DARE BE RETARDED AND GAY ENOUGH TO GO AGAINST SOMETHING SO GREAT?
All of my HNNNGH
FUCK I WANNA KISS THAT LIP BOOTY
HITAGI BEST WOMAN
No lips in 2d
In defense of sidemouth, it's a good way to save time.
Because anime is a style which enforce a certain general figure, so when you add certain details, it detract from this general impression. Lips generally fall into that rule.
WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING?!
Why are you posting a branch?
I think Yamato 2199 did a great job with having the shape and everything be present, but not having them clash with the artstyle or stand out too much.
best lips are octolips
pic somewhat related
Only subtle lips are okay.
Sometime Inori has, other times her lips' gone.
There was 15 min version where the D gets sucked but I'm guessing it was removed from youtube
So instead have this http://vocaroo.com/i/s1DrwxxplxOl
Okay now this has my interest again.
Just like her personality.
It never fails.
>trying to fit in by not doing what i want you to do? How cute
>W-what are you, trying to fit in? Why dont you be d-different like all of is and believe in the popular opinion like the awesome special snowflake you are
Good goy, think you are being a rebel by following the herd.
Lips look ugly. Lines are cuter and lipstick is an abomination and makes people 100% unattractive and un-cute.
I think you mean this one.
Nice strawman you got there. How about not leaving /v/ the next time?
Yeah although last time I saw it on youtube it had the image OP posted
Because East Asian people generally have thinner lips. Seriously, when Japanese do "duck lips" (アヒル口), it ends up looking completely fucking different than the typical white/black Americans doing duck lips, because of the difference in lip mass.
Now I think Xebec should take the risk.
I love the way Noizi Ito draws these lips on her characters in these illustrations.
Too bad the anime was kinda shit
I don't know what happened to that one either.
Excuse me while I laugh.
Lips are for nigger. Tiny mouth / no nose is master race
it costs too much to animate
I want a Mio spinoff show
My waifu has lips
too bad she died
Got yer lips right here, OP.
Akiyama Mio: Ghost Hunter
I'd watch it if it featured the other keions
Ghost in the Shell does lips well
She always has the most pillowey breasts
Because it looks like shit when it's done badly, for example Haganai.
It works in GiTS because she's supposed to look like a distant freak.
Because lips are ugly. Feature of 3DPD
It's not that hard to draw lips though.
Might as well post Jurina instead
Is this a man? Looks awful, it doesn't even look anime actually.
0/10 apply yourself.
So that's a yes?
>Defending changes of the design from the manga
Fucking green-eyed Eren and not-dead eyed Mikasa
lips are generally used to mark slut characters
The art in the manga is atrocious. I'm glad IG fixed it.
What eye color does have in the manga again?
this guy know what's going on
I wasn't defending it, I also think the anime has a shit charecter design compared to the manga. I was talking about the lips. Drawing lips like Mikasa's is not hard.
>watching anime literally made for teenage girls
>he's not a teenage girl
You dont understand nigga, even /fit/ was all over KnT when it aired.
What kind of mature anime do you watch, anon? And why aren't you a girl too, neckbeard?
Western cartoons usually don't have lips, either.
You say that like /fit/ aren't the most lonely guys next to /a/.
>using western animation as a baseline for anything except this
Those are usually better. I really need to watch more shoujo.
Then you're good in my book
I watched both seasons and was upset by the lack of kissu
can someone give me a brief summary of what happens in the manga up to date after the anime leaves off?
That's not what I'm saying.
Here's what happened.
>Why don't female anime characters have lips?
>Because anime isn't western garbage.
>But western cartoons doesn't have lips either.
>Stop comparing anime to western cartoons!
My point is that neither anime nor western cartoons have lips so you can't make this an east-vs-west clash.
It's the same as with the non-existent nose, fingernails and poor detailed hair.
Poor detailed hair is the least of my concerns.
There was first kiss last year IIRC, people made threads aboout it.
There was this one video of a guy screaming to his cellphone "IT'S FUCKING HAPPENING" when he read the chapter Kazehaya kissed Sawako. I think he removed the video.
But I'm almost a teenage girl, anon! Only 3 more years to go.
Ever since watching Being Human I've completely lost my toothbrushing fetish.
Hopefully when this gets animated we can expect something like this.
Japanese people don't have as vibrant lip colour, that's all.
I think that's that shitty Arkh thing.
In FLCL's case it has a point that it looks like that, though.
yare yare daze
You want to see lips?
Go read the prawn chapter of this.
I don't see any lips.
>not black francis
I have a fetish for 2D lips and 3D hair
Eren has yellow eyes in the manga.
Anyone know why they changed that? It just a minor detail. Same with making Misaka's scarf red instead of black.
>That page where he holds his friend's hand
That's just the staring eyes
>watching anime literally made for teenage boys
amine faces are usually pretty simple on the details aside from the crazy hair and hair decs. Giving them detailed lips just makes them look like niggers
much quicker not to
but when they do
We're all little girls here silly.
Because when they enough trouble doing body and movements, why would they bother with the smaller details?
I fucking love lips.
Man; I love Sasayaki An as well.
Too much of a pain in the ass to animate
Ryoko and Ayeka from the first two episodes of Tenchi Muyo did.
My god she was obnoxious. The only thing I could think of when she was on screen was how I wanted her to shut up and suck my dick.
isnt she just a tanned jap?
Anime style drawing is based on simplification now. Every line you add makes a huge difference in the characters. Adding details to the lips would attract too much of the attention., if you want to maintain the balance you should add details to the eyes, nose and everything making it look like 80s or 90s anime.
Vagabond has lips.
DON'T YOU PUT THAT CURSE ON ME RICKY
A black scarf would be boring as hell, she wouldn't stand out at all.
If you really can't figure it out just leave now please
To save money on animation. Usually, if there's a close up or a kiss, the lips are there. I just saw it in a Nisekoi episode.
They canonically have had sex
This is why lips are rarely drawn.
This guy gets it. If I wanted enormous dick sucking lips with lipstick slathered all over them like a slut, I'd read American comics.
There was a youtube video with that image about your imouto waking you up. POST IT.
Taken down for breaking YouTube's sexual video rules.
