Mouths

Studio View

These three new faces that I started modeling the other day are interesting to me because in all three the mouth is doing something awkward and asymmetrical. In many ways I think the mouth has the greatest range of expression out of all the facial features.  In terms of scale, it’s the largest, and and be stretched and manipulated in numerous ways. Then there’s the contrast of the softness of the lips against the stiffness of the teeth, and the incredible depth of the interior of the mouth.  I think in a lot of ways the mouth is able to compensate for the fact that the nose is essentially a dead zone on the face in that it’s completely immobile.
