I am a total beginner in modeling and trying my best to replicate some cartoon icon and I managed to make the body, nose and eyes but I don't know how to make the lips, I want to make the lips and shape key it into smiles, or sadness, etc..

I tried using cube with subsurfaces and extruding, tried curves but I feel like I am just lost.

These are the lips

And this is my work so far:

Thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ there are many ways, do you want the lips to be part of the head mesh? or can it be a curve? how do you plan to rig and animate the lips? etc $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots I don't know what are the advantages and disadvantages of all of these, but I want lips to animate them into a smile or into a sad face $\endgroup$
