How to Draw Fashion Girl with Stamp Brushes in Procreate – Step by Step Tutorial
Hi guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to this week’s tutorial.
Let’s draw together.
So today is gonna be a little bit different. I’m gonna be demoing this new body brush box that I am creating for you guys. They’re backwards girls, and they have all the clothes included. So I know you guys wanna just learn how to draw clothes, and I know you wanted this sort of backwards look, so that it’s really easy to make them look like your friends and family without having facial features and stuff like that, so all of this best friend kind of deal that I know a lot of you’ve been asking for. So hopefully, this is enjoyable to you.
I’m gonna be showing you how I built this girl using these stamp brushes, and then how you go about illustrating her. So it’s not gonna be a draw from scratch like usual, gonna be a little bit different. Hopefully, that’s okay. They will be ready a week from now, so there will be a link in the description below where you can find these. At the moment, I still don’t have a name, so I need you guys to help me out. I don’t know, should I do backwards body brushes or… I’m not sure, I don’t know if that’s right, but let me know in the comments below what you would search for to find stuff like this. I don’t know, it’s fashion girls, they’re backwards, they’re from… I don’t know exactly how to describe it, so if you guys have any suggestions, I’d really, really appreciate it. But hopefully, in a week’s time, we will have a name and it will be in the description below where you can find this newly named brush box. So with that said, let’s get to it. I’m really excited to show you guys how these work.
So your canvas is gonna be 4000 x 4000 pixels, 300 dpi and sRGB as per usual. So let’s dive in and I’ll show you how these brushes work. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the brushes into Procreate, you’ll go and find them, and today we’re going to go into… I just have backwards slim lady right now, so we’re… They come in two different sizes, curvy and slim, and so you can pick which one you want. And we go in and start by figuring out what body position we’d like her to be in. So today, I’m just gonna have the arms in. We have a few varieties here. So I’m gonna grab that brush, I’m gonna have it at 90%. I’m gonna make sure all my brushes are on the same size, so they kinda match up, and I’m just gonna tap and there she is.
And now, the key is with this is to put the next brush on another layer so we can move them around. So then I wanna go back in and grab… I’m gonna have her wearing a dress today. Actually, while we’re here, why don’t we give her some legs. That’d probably be nice. We have arms and legs separate, or you can have the bodies together, so you can kind of mix and match what positions you’d like her to be in. I’m just gonna do the straight legs today, and oops… I’ll make sure she’s at 90% again. Okay, and then there we go. So again, you can see how it kind of… It’s important to be able to move that around a little bit. Okay, I’m gonna select both layers and just move her up just a touch. Great, okay, so then I’m going to add a new layer and then… No actually, while we’re here…
Actually, why don’t we just go and grab some feet. So I’m gonna give her some high heels ’cause I’m gonna put a dress on her today. So I’m gonna just zoom in and make sure it’s at 90% or whatever you wanna work with it. It’s just I know with this canvas, I needed it to be a little bit smaller. And just tap here, and then we can just line those up so you can see how you could make her a little bit shorter or taller here. And there we go. Okay, so let’s go and get some clothes, and there is a bunch of clothes to pick from. So today, I’m gonna just grab this cute little dress and 90%. Great, and then I wanna make sure I have a new layer, haven’t done that yet, and tap. And there we go and we’ll move it around. Okay, so this one lines up, of course, you can move it depending on how you have your body. Each to them where you can just kind of move it and form it to it and resize and reshape just to get that perfect fit for yourself. But again, this is just a template, so we’re gonna be drawing over it and we can make all of that perfect later.
Okay, so then we can go and get a hairstyle. So the heads are in a separate folder, so we have a bunch of them here, some short ‘dos, mid ‘dos, braids, up ‘dos, buns, curly, straight, wavy, all the rest of it, and a couple of hats here too. So today, I’m gonna use this head long one, and again, 90%. And I wanna put this on a separate layer, tap and there we go, just kind of see where you’d want her to be. I think that looks pretty good. Okay, so she is ready to go. I can actually go to her leg layer and just use my eraser and just erase her backside here. So that makes a little bit more sense, if that helps just visually. And there we go, so we have our template. So once you’ve finished your template, you can go ahead and just merge all these layers together so it’s just on one. And then you just take the opacity and bump it back so that we can trace over, ’cause you are welcome to create whatever you want with these guides, you just can’t include the guides in your final product. So that’s this is just meant to be literally drawn over top of.
So add a new layer, gonna go into my favourite brush. Literally, I have it in a faves folder, but we’ll go… I’ll show you where it is. It’s in inking and it is the dry ink and I have it at 4%. And make sure I add a new layer and come in and do some line work. And this is where you add your personality and your actual techniques and stuff, know where to put things and just practice and… Yeah, just speed up your workflow here. So this is where you just add your own stuff. I’m just kind of using it nice and scratchy right now. I just love this pen, it really just has such a nice flow to it. So you don’t have to obviously follow all the lines exactly, it’s just meant to get you just sort of in the right place and get that feeling going.
So I have given you two options of flat feet and heels, ’cause I know how weird that can be, especially from drawing from the back, it’s kind of a strange thing, you don’t have to have a lot of reference for that, so hopefully this helps you out, it certainly has helped me out. I had my husband take pictures of my feet from behind so I can figure out how to do this. So hopefully that helps you out. So this just allows you to make your own shoes, design whatever styles you want, you just wanna give a little depth, maybe a little thing, and then here you come in and maybe give the sole like that. I guess it depends on the shoe. Or maybe this would be she’s wearing a little slip ons or something. I don’t think I’ll give her an ankle strap.
Okay, so basically that is our outline, so you can turn off the guide behind, so you can see. And that’s how simple it is. So it’s really easy just to get just that basic shape, and then you can go and make it your own, so this is really great for beginners and also for if you’re just intermediate and working your way towards learning or I can’t just wanna do something really quick and get to it. So let’s just go and just keep going with our lines and make some more just definition here.
Oops, I actually forgot to do these, her heels here, you’ll kinda want these to show… There. That’s probably better. Okay, that makes more sense. That’s coloured in so I’m going to go on the layer below, and I’m gonna go grab my studio pen, and then I’m just gonna use skin colour and I’m just gonna create a palate for myself here, and let’s just go and colour in just the skin areas.
Okay. And then I’m gonna create a new layer and we’re gonna do her dress, so I’m gonna just see. What am I doing? I’m gonna pick, let’s see. Why do we make her pink? Such an original idea. I know. Let’s see. That’s probably good. Okay. We’ll start with pink. Oh, you guys are gonna get so sick of me and my pink. Actually, I’m just gonna fill this one up, put the hair over top. It doesn’t really matter. Okay, and let’s just make sure we got our straps here. Okay, let’s do another layer. I’m just gonna make this a darker pink, kind of a dusty colour, people dust to her shoes. Maybe she’s a bridesmaid, that makes sense. Let’s see, I’ve missed a line here, so I’m just gonna go and fix that, grab my dry ink back to my line layer and just seems to have disappeared. There we go.
Okay, and what else shall we do, why don’t we do her… Well, let’s finish her shoes, I suppose while we’re here. I’m just gonna go in a layer below, select that and go back to my skin layer and just make that a little bit more browny, gray. Actually, I’ll put that pink there. Okay. And I’ll go another layer above and we’ll just fill in her hair and I don’t know. We’ll start with a light blonde, I usually start with blonde and then I find easier to adjust darker after. I don’t know, it’s just the way I work.
Alright, so there we have our block colors and just thinking maybe we should add some flowers, maybe she’s holding something. So some nice flowers. Maybe we should do that. Okay, so what I’m gonna do is I’m just gonna create a new layer on top, I got my black again and my dry ink and go in and just draw some flowers, I don’t know what kind of flowers but…
Just gonna raise this a little bit here. I like that. Hope that it’s a little packaged up. Alright, well, you get the idea. So you can add your little bits and pieces to it to make it your own, of course. So why don’t we just go and quickly colour that into some blocking, I’m just gonna create a new layer below and grab a green. Let’s say, maybe there, okay. And I’m gonna use my studio pen. Grab another colour, start with this pink and make it a little bit more bold, a little bit on that colour. And I guess we should probably colour in this part too. I’m just gonna grab skin colour, make it a little bit more orangey, I don’t know, let’s see what that colour is like. Yeah. Just fill this in. Okay, and then I’m just gonna move that layer below my line layer and put there my skin layer all the way to the bottom. Okay, great. Okay, I think you can get the idea of just adding some other extra stuff to it, and then I’m just gonna go in and shade by using clipping masks. So I’m gonna grab that skin layer and just add a new layer on top. Add a clipping mask, grab my skin layer or skin colour rather, and do an L shape down into the right to create my shadow colour. I’m going to grab my paint brush or painting, and go into painting and grab that quash, and I’m gonna have it at about 10% and just start going in, there’s gonna be a shadow under the skirt. And I’m gonna have my shadows on the right.
You can see that. And that hair will cast a bit of a shadow. I’m gonna bring my first dent to about four, just to kinda get in here a little bit. Okay, perfect. And then I’m gonna go to my skirt and my dress layer, and add another layer on top, click on it, hit clipping mask. I’m gonna grab that. Actually, I’ll just grab the shoe colour that will work nicely, we’re still on quash, and go to brush size, 10% again, and just start adding. Just bring down the lines like that to create that… The folds in the way that it ruffles kinda go or the folds go in the dress. Then you can bring it down to maybe 3% and just go and make these a little bit smaller, just up top here, give a little bit more definition just in the corners, kinda like that. And let me now just have some more shadows here too. So over there, is. Okay. And then, while we’re here, let’s do the shoes, so tapping that shoe layer, clipping mask, do an elegance of down into the right. This is how I always get my shadow colors, just give a little something on there, and do the same to the brown part of the shoe, so click on that, clipping mask, and I think that was our colour down into the right at L, just some shadows here. Good stuff.
Okay. Actually, while we have this colour, why don’t we do this, the wrapping for the flowers. Gonna click on that layer, add a clipping mask, maybe bring my brush up to about six, just give it a little definition in there, little depth. Perfect. Okay, and then we’ll do our hair. Clipping mask, and I’m gonna just go on and select, so just hitting that, get my little picker, pick that colour, that’s the blonde down into the right. And I’m still at, let’s say, 6% here it’s fine, just kinda get in some of these shadow, just filling that out, and then bring it under two or smaller details here.
It just depends how detailed you wanna go. I’m just gonna make this a little bit more simplistic today. You can go quite detailed, of course, with all your highlights and just depends on what style you wanna draw in. This is just gonna be a little bit more on the graphics side today or illustrative side or whatever you wanna call it. And maybe you wanna just get some highlights in there. It’s just white. Alright, and you can do the same too if you wanted to really add some other kinda touches. So you can go to the dress shadow layer, you can pick the dress colour, make it a little lighter, just move it across towards the white. And maybe we’ll just make this a little bit bigger at about 5%, maybe it has a little bit of a sheen to it, this fabric, and maybe the shoes do too. Grab that pink, a lighter pink, maybe be on the right layer, maybe that they would just have a little… Bring the gouache back to about 2%, maybe you have a little highlight there. It just adds a little bit of something.
And of course, we can go and make these flowers a little bit more interesting too, just giving them more depth. So again, with their colors down to the right an L-shape to create those shadows, and we can just give them a little bit more colour here. Okay, so that’s a way to make a really quick fashion backwards girl drawing. We will get that name. So I hope you enjoyed that. I know it’s a little bit different, it’s not just drawing from scratch, but I just wanted to show you these things that I’m working on, just a quick way to draw these fashionista girls when you’re… Especially while you’re learning.
