9 paint ap­peal­ing lips

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

Lips are an im­por­tant fa­cial fea­ture. They draw at­ten­tion as much as the eyes do, and help the char­ac­ter to ex­press emo­tion. To get them right it’s just a mat­ter of tex­ture. Lips aren’t a flat, plain el­e­ment: I paint the lit­tle wrin­kles with a very thin brush, which gives them tex­ture and a lot of vol­ume. In­deed, vol­ume is the key to bring life to the lips, so I al­ways add some in­tense dots of light to make them more re­al­is­tic and at­tract even more at­ten­tion.
