Paint­ing the nose

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I use the Soft Air­brush to make a start on the ren­der­ing of the nose, while pay­ing at­ten­tion to the light di­rec­tion on the im­age and the tem­per­a­ture of my colours. I use the Trans­par­ent Wa­ter­color tool to add more def­i­ni­tion to smaller ar­eas, such as the nos­trils lines. I’m care­ful with the tran­si­tions among the colours, lights and shad­ows, be­cause I want a nat­u­ral look.

Ap­peal­ing, nat­u­ral lips

Fol­low­ing the main light source I spread the base colour (red), us­ing the Soft Air­brush, on both lips. Be­tween lips and skin there’s a soft, ir­reg­u­lar line, which I re­pro­duce with the Rough pen­cil at 20 per cent Opac­ity. I use my cus­tomised skin brush for a nat­u­ral tex­ture ef­fect. The Smooth Wa­ter­color Brush from the Wa­ter­color tool pal­ette blends colour on the mouth.
