Wow, great jobs here!!!

creeduk beat me to it ... meaning the new CS2 Warp Option in the Transform Tool ...

It might not be enough as I tried to keep the natural upper-lip line ... but here is what I came up with...

Warp Transform

creeduk Heya! Thanks for telling me about the Warp Transform feature. I used that on this newest attempt. Just goes to show that there is more than one way to fatten a lip! LOL

Flora Hiya! Thanks for having a shot! It's great to see everyone's attempts as it gives me a great guideline to measure up to. Thanks also for having a listen to my music. I am glad you enjoyed it!

OK- here is my latest attempt.

I used the Warp Transform option on the upper lip portion only, on a new layer.
Then I made a new layer on top of that one and used the Healing Brush to clean up above the new lip shape a bit. I'm not sure what tool would be the best for the cleanup.

My question now is... how do I get back some lip texture and make that line between the lips look more natural? It looks a bit funny as it is now. My big problem with the lip enhancement right now is making sure to keep that line of shadow where the upper lip and lower lip meet. Most of my other attempts have blurred this line so there is no clear demarkation of where the upper lip meets the bottom. Now I seem to have that line there using the Warp Transform Tool, but I am not happy with how the texture looks.

Any tips?

Hey Craig, This is like duelling banjo's
pretty much; i always lose there too.

clone, push and smudge. for the line between the lips i used a very small push brush and just wiped here and there in a straight line. for the texture in the upper lip, you can borrow a bit from the lower with clone, or push/smudge some more in within the upper lip itself. or, for that matter, you could just draw some in, or draw it on another layer and use the layer opacity to blend it.
