Why do artists keep doing this shit? Have they become lazy to the point where they can't draw proper lines anymore? Or do they just randomly do it because they see other people doing it?

It gives the detail of the upper lip you uncultured swine

They do the same thing with thighs too. Soft skin pressing against soft skin = no line.

Anime eyes and noses look nothing like real eyes and noses either, you know.

Naoki Urasawa talks about that with some mangaka about that who apply that tool and usage in their work. I saw it on manben it was interesting how it adds novelty and vintage to their work and trademark.

Yet they still do it even when their mouths are open.

Yes OP, I'm pretty sure that completing that line takes so much effort that they all collectively decided to save time by ignoring it.
There's absolutely no way it can be a design choice. Why would that be? It's fucking ruining the industry, damn Miyazaki was right.

You are certainly not fitting in.

If a nigga ever tells you detailed lips don't look good on animes show him the animes from Prison School and watch him squirm from his doodle going erect.

/a/utism at its finest, m8

What can we do?
>>
>>160855304
Because the bottom lip is not fully defined. It's basically a cheap way to show that the lip is 3D without having to shade.
>>
>>160855550
So the characters in the OP picture are pressing lower and upper lip against each other?
>>
>>160856336
Isn't it (usually) the upper lip that has a detail in the middle and the bottom lip is just a line?
>>
>>160856466
If you're talking about the philtrum then yeah, that's usually the most defined part. Though it's not usually defined in anime. The idea is that the fastest part of the lip, which is the lower lip in the middle, is left blank to show that it is not just a line like the rest of the mouth. This is really only for open mouths and you can see >>160856053 for why it's done when the mouth is closed.

It's usually just to define the cupid's bow on the lips, it just looks cuter than the alternatives. And anime artists usually have a dislike for american cartoons so the full mouth just looks to cartoonish.

I'm pretty sure they do it on open mouths just because the style ended up carrying over.
>>
>>160855931
Noses are gross.
>>
>>160855304
because they think it looks more cute of course, it is japanimation so it's all about cuteness.

>>160856855
i like noses
>>
>>160856935
the thin, perky ones are the best. slightly pointy...
>>
>>160855931
I miss sexy usage of lipstick.

>>160855304
That girl on the bottom left looks like a real beauty, I hope nothing bad happens to her.
>>
It's pretty much the definitive feature of the 10s. Three years from now when the decades comparison images start making their rounds every one of them will have this broken smile line.
>>
>>160855931
Here the tip of the nose is visible only but the strap of the eye patch tells you that the nose is still there, just invisible.

>>160855304
I think it actually takes more work to draw two small lines than a single bigger one, so it's probably not laziness.

>>160856085
Huh, I just realized Riko looks like she belongs in Ichigo Mashimaro.

God only nose.
