Oh my gosh!O__O  You did those lovely lovely lips in 20 MINUTES!?  They look perfect!  I really like the shading job you did, it looks really natural.  You really nailed the shape of Patrick's lips too!  I always thought they had a neat shape.  The upper lip is so skinny, and the bottom is really full, but it has a little dip in the center.
I'm downloading the tutorial right now, and I shall watch it, gleaning as much information as I can from it!  Thank you so much for taking time to do this, I'm very grateful.  Big hugs!:tighthug:

Yep, 20 minutes xD When it's about drawing, I don't know if 20 minutes is a long time or not. I guess it depends of the thing you draw ^^
Lips can be quite difficult to draw because of this kind of shape. Something, it's really bended (like Shinji or Uruha's lips), and sometimes it's a bit like a line (like Patrick's lips)... Typical occidental men's lips ^^ 
Have fun with this video :glomp:

Well, after watching the tutorial, 20 minutes seems like a good amount of time to spend on a lip drawing.  They look really good!  It would take me longer though.xD
I know what you mean about lips, when they're very curvy, or not all at curvy they can be difficult.  A happy medium is easier to achieve.xD
I enjoyed watching the video.  I really picked up quite a lot from it.  I like the music you used too.:D  Thank you again!:hug:

You're probably right ^^ Well, if you how how to use your stuff and you know what result you want to get, it goes quite quickly finally ^^ 
I'm really glad you can learn from it ^^ 
I'm glad you liked the music ^^ Those two metal bands can easily turn boring videos into epic things xD

And I've got a lot to learn.xD  I'm working on it though!
I always learn from you!^^  Pah, it would have been an interesting video even without music.:D

Me too, I have a lot to learn. In fact, I learn a lot of things, but I never apply them xD
Aww that's sweet :meow:

That is both the cool thing and the torturous thing about learning, there is always MORE.XD  Ugh, I know what you mean about not applying things, I've got a bucket full of em!
