Fantasy Lips Tutorial by JoJoesArt Fantasy Lips Tutorial by JoJoesArt
I use Photohsop CS4 and a Hanvon "Artmaster" graphic tablet. I only use the two default airbrushes in Photoshop: hard and soft round airbrush. :)


After receiving so much positive feedback on my eyetutorial, I thought it would be a good idea to also make tutorials about other parts of the face! ^-^ So this is my lips-tutorial! :D Feel free to download it and use it on your own pictures, but please credit me and link back to this tutorial if you create something with the help of it! And I would also love to see what you created! :)

I hope this will be helpful for you! :heart: Comments, critiques and favs are highly appreciated! :hug:

I think this lip tutorial was fantastic.
The fact that you showed the basics in how to design lips was really brilliant as I always seemed to struggle in designing my lips and making them look good.
The step by step pictures you've shown on the left was also great as you showed how to do the shading and lighting perfectly. The fact that you even showed some of your own art pieces and different colours of eyes
I believe that your lip tutorial will help me immensely and I really thank you so much.

Loving the tutorials keep them up.

I've used this tutorial a couple times now, trying it over and over until I can get it down pat. This is my third and best attempt so far I think.  I'm still having some trouble capturing the realism and blending properly, but no way I'd have gotten this far without your help.  Thanks so much for sharing!…

This looks wonderful! How long do lips usually take you?

Google Chrome has an extension called Eye Dropper and it enables you to choose whatever color you want on a webpage.

Thank you so much for putting what brushes you used as well.  I struggle with brush choices so that was quite helpful!
kiki1650 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013
I was wondering if it would be possible if you added a blank lineart of the lip so people like me could practice. Is this possible without a tablet? I would love to do this tutorial but I don't have the resources.

Melody-Madness Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for making this so clear! In many tutorials I find you have to "guess" certain steps due to minimal steps or jumps in sudden progress. Yours is so nice and clear and such a massive help, thank you :)

Truly lovely. Great for real lips, too, as it shows where one can use multiple colors and where to put shine.

You make it look so simple but it's difficult, especially when painting with a mouse.
