I am then going to select the upper lip here and in a layer on top of the…bottom lip, I will call it upper lip, and fill that path with that same pink.…Now I can say there is a couple ways of creating the textures on the lips.…One quick way would be to do something like this.…I'm going to create a layer right here on top of this, put it right above the…bottom lip, and I'm going to call this layer a texture, and these are for lips…that have a lot of texture to them.

In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
