Ask How to properly Paint the Lips?

Hai all, I wanna know how to properly paint the lips for the character?
This artwork I was painted with vertex paint, but I’m not satisfied with the result.


If anyone knows how to make this artwork better will be appreciated. Thanks

You could add in some shadow and highlight with a very fine brush…

First I would enter edit mode…select the LIP vertices and make a Vertx Group…
assign the group.


That may be all you need for a low poly…

but I continue and add a transparency Mask to control where the paint goes and to blend into the face texture…

Then I can always change the lip color and blend…

Thanks for the tutorial, will try it. So the first step is to apply the subdiv modifier first? Because on this model I still using the subdiv modifier and yet applied.

No that isn’t needed as you can set the subdivision to be visible in edit mode…
Since I use shape-keys, I can never apply a subdivision surface modifier because of them…Turn this on in edit mode…
