Tutorial: female lips by Cataclysm-X Tutorial: female lips by Cataclysm-X
As promised: the female version of the male lips tutorial.
I feel like dancing... yeah baby!
:iconflowerdanceplz: :iconpyrodanceplz: :iconbananadanceplz:

A way to say thank you to everyone. Next week it's quite possible I'll hit the 1 million pageviews. Even though it's just a number, I never dared to imagine so many people would take a look at my gallery! You crazy people! :psychotic: :love:

So yeah, this tutorial proves how much I appreciate you guys and gals. If there are any art-related questions left, feel free to ask. :)


I noticed that, when I search for my full name on the internet, someone made a Wikipedia page about me, lol!

...What, you don't believe me?
Check this link!

It got deleted because there wasn't much info shown on the page. Still... I wonder who could be the person who wrote the article?

That's about it for now. I'll work on Jared again, and maybe you'll get to see a new tutorial by the end of the year...? ;)
Tot ziens!

Hey! Thanks for the useful tutorial. :)

And I have a question!
Did you blend the skin around the lips here, or shaded without blending (looks like it but I'm not sure)?
Peope always tell me that blending is unprofessional and wrong. Is that true?

Just one thing- (LOVING YOUR TUTORIALS THOUGH!!) I often find it hard to know where there would be shadows in black and white (well pencils are technically gray) when the picture is in colour. How do you know where to shade?!

How do you sharpen you eraser and what kind of an eraser do you use?
thank you
Cataclysm-X Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I use several erasers :) such as a kneaded eraser for smudges and highlights, a pencil eraser (eraser in the shape of a pencil, easy to sharpen!) and regular erasers for basic parts such as outlines. :nod:

Did you do this in lead pencil?? If so how did you make it so perfect? The lines arent overlapping eachother!

Can you help me out and tell me how you did that? I'd LOVE to know hehe <333
Iycecold Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2010  Student Digital Artist
O.o did you do this in lead pencil?
If so, how do you make your shading so perfect? The lines aren't overlapping eachother and it all looks so smooth when you shaded the face!!

Can you give me any tips? I'd LOVE to know how you do that hehe <3333

LarslovesJames Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Believe me it was useful! From you I learnt how to make the lips look a bit better. But dude...I have to ask: How on earth do you make the skin look so...perfect??? It's like you drew every single pore....
Great job, btw!
