Xenophile by viridis-somnio Xenophile by viridis-somnio
:bulletred:EDIT:bulletred: Guys, don't worry! XD I've had the non-Kanye version of E.T. long before the song was finally put on the radio. I was just disappointed that Kanye was thrown into the mix when I heard it on there.

------------------

I was inspired by Katy Perry's music video, E.T. C:

You don't know how ecstatic I was when the song FINALLY came on the radio, but then I heard Kanye's voice...

:iconcryforeverplz:

His bit ruins it for me. But hey, that's just my opinion. I'd just rather hear Katy sing on her own. I'm not a fan of rappers cutting in on other people's songs in general.

Anyway, this was a good break from doing the Animal-ipstick series. :nod: My new paints were just waiting to be used again! I really wanted to try out a gradient affect and I think it turned out well!

It normally takes about 30 minutes for any lip art I create. :) Maybe more depending on how much detail there is.

Hm, a lot of people hate Kanye's part in the song, but I think it could've been worse... Lil Wayne could've been in it. Now, his ass I can't stand. He never finishes a rhyme when he raps on someone else's song. Drives me up the wall.

I always wanted to draw a girl with different colors lipstick. Somehow I want to incorporate this into a new character I'm thinking of, nice work!

It's ok, I already have the version with no Kanye, lol. That was the first version I heard of E.T., and what I was saying is that I heard the Kanye ver. on the radio and hated it.

love how its a gradual increase of colour rather than a block of it, looks far more sensual :)

There is another version of E.T. where that nincompoop Kanye isn't in it at all, if you can find that version. I'm looking for it.

Oh I have that version, and that's the first one I ever heard. Then the Kanye version came on the radio and I was like ewww. Btw, the non-Kanye version I found is called E.T. (US version). Hope that helps!

The colors look so amazing!! I especially love the black dots on the corners of your mouth. How did you get the paint to look so shiny and natural?

Pretty much! The silver really only covers the inner part of my lips while the colors are on the edges.

Absolutely amazing. The gradient is so well done. The only thing that bugs me a bit is the fact that you didn't blend the center of your upper lip as well, but that's a really minor concern, honestly.

viridis-somnio Featured By Owner May 28, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
You mean between the red and the green? I wanted there to be a distinct line separating those two colors, but I think blending that spot would've been cool, too. :)

Yeah, but like I said, its a really minor thing. The things you do with your lips are just truly asmazing.
