How to Draw Lippy Lips from Shopkins

Lippy Lips is one of the Shopkins - cute, plastic collectible characters based on grocery store items. The characters, which include Apple Blossom, Kooky Cookie, Chee Zee, and many more, have the large, watery eyes characteristic of anime and manga style art. The toys were developed by Moose Toys of Melbourne, Australia and have been available since 2014.

Shopkins like Lippy are classed as "common, rare, ultra rare, special edition, limited edition [or] exclusive." Hundreds of different Shopkins are available, and collectors trade for their favorite models based on rarity. Related characters include a line of dolls - also sporting food themed names and attire - that represent countries around the world. The dolls are sized so as to inhabit the same fictional world of Shopville.

In addition to the figurines, images of Shopkins now appear on clothing and accessories, cosmetic items, in games and books, in an animated film and online series, on collectible trading cards, and on school supplies. The company has also produced the Trash Pack and the Grossery Gang, described as "your Shopkins gone rotten." These toys are aimed at boys and, as the name suggests, sport less-than-appetizing features.

Would you like to draw Lippy Lips? This easy, step-by-step drawing guide is here to help. All you will need is a pencil or pen and a piece of paper. You may also wish to use crayons, paints, colored pencils, or markers to shade Lippy like your favorite lipstick!

How to Draw Washing Hands

Hand washing or hand hygiene is important to everyone's health. Long ago, before the discovery of germs, people thought that sickness was caused by "miasma" or "bad air." It wasn't until the mid-1800s that doctors and nurses realized how important handwashing was in protecting their patients from infection.

In an age of global pandemics, the need for good handwashing practices is more important than ever. According to the Centers for Disease Control, you should wash your hands before you eat, after using the toilet, before and after caring for a sick person or treating a wound, and after you cough, sneeze, blow your nose, touch your pet, or do anything else that could dirty your hands, even with microscopic germs.

Did you know? Germs like coronavirus are destroyed by soap, but the process takes time. After soaping up your hands, you should wash them for at least 20 seconds to let the germ-killing soap do its job.

If you'd like to create a reminder for people to wash their hands when they come to your home, school, or business, you've come to the right place. This easy, step-by-step cartoon drawing tutorial will show you how to draw your own handwashing sign. All you will need is a pen, pencil, marker, or crayon and a sheet of paper.

How to Draw Lipstick

Cosmetics like lipstick have been used since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, and others used lip color. Queen Elizabeth I of England used a red chemical called mercuric sulfide, a pigment also used to make vermillion paint. A cosmetic called rouge was used both as a lipstick and as a blush on the cheeks.

Today, "lipstick is made of dyes and pigments in a fragranced oil-wax base." Beeswax, carnauba wax, or candelilla wax may be used. Lipstick is considered "an almost universal cosmetic since, together with the eyes, the mouth is a leading feature, and it can be attractively coloured and textured."

Lipstick differs from lip balms or chapstick in that its main purpose is to provide long-lasting color, while the other products are intended to moisturize the lips. There can, however, be a crossover of these purposes - moisturizing lipsticks and tinted lip balms. Lip balms are usually packaged in smaller and less decorated tubes than lipsticks.

In the past, women who wore lipstick and other makeup were considered to be of poor moral character. This began to change during the 1800s. Today, lipstick is often associated with beauty and perhaps fame. Sometimes, lipstick is even personified as a character in its own right, such as Lippy Lips from the Shopkins toy line.

Would you like to draw a tube of lipstick? This easy, step-by-step cartoon object drawing tutorial is here to show you how. All you will need is a pen, pencil, or marker and a sheet of paper.

How to Draw a Sad Anime Face

Anime is a popular style of Japanese animation used in cartoons. This characteristic art style emerged in the 1960s, both in cartoon anime and the related comic book manga. Its popularity increased markedly during the 1990s and still continues to grow.

Anime characters typically have large, expressive eyes, and extreme emotions are commonly displayed. Loss, death, unrequited love, and betrayal are popular themes, especially in series aimed at adults rather than children. As such, sad characters such as the one in this drawing guide are a staple in many anime.

Today, over 400 studios produce anime, and others have adopted the style outside of Japan. More than half of the world's animated television shows are considered anime.

How to Draw an Anime Chibi Girl

The term "chibi" is derived from a Japanese verb meaning "to become shorter." It is a style of caricature that features its subject in an exaggerated way. Chibi "are small and chubby, with stubby limbs and oversized heads to make them resemble children." The word chibi can also be translated as "little" or "cute."

Chibi has become popular due to its use in anime and manga. When drawing a chibi character, the head usually takes up one third to one half of the cartoon's height. The design, including the features of the face, is also simplified and less detailed when compared to other drawing styles.

Chibi drawing styles are used occasionally in non-chibi cartoons to achieve a comedic effect. The chibi character is often expressing a strong emotion, such as anger or infatuation. Examples can be found in anime such as Pokémon and One Piece. Chibi caricatures are also drawn of famous people and historical figures.
