OMG I LOVE THIS!! I've always had a hard time painting a man's lips because they end up looking puffy and glossy like a woman with a lipstick/lipgloss. Thanks for the tips. It's hard to know where to put those "ripples", though. Any more tips on how to get that?

Thanks for your kind words. As far as the lip wrinkles go, every persons' lips differ, but for the most part, they're either straight up-and-down lines, or are splayed out like an orange slice. Observe your own lips, you're your own perfect and convenient reference! To keep the light reflection from getting too crazy so that it won't look like gloss, just take a tad lighter color from the surrounding area and make a really thin line right beside the darker cleft line. For the lips as a whole, don't get too bright with the highlights -- less is more. Keep the shadows and highlights to a minimum for thinner masculine lips.

This particular ref photo subject does happen to have a bit of gloss on his lips, so perhaps the zoom on the lips where the gloss reflection is "connected" makes more sense for lips with make-up. Hope that advice helps you a bit! Good luck.

The reason I love your tutorials is because of how applicable they are. I have seen far too many tutorials that don't teach you how to draw X, it teaches you how to draw that X. I want to be able to take the techniques and make them my own. Great job composing these!
