Free Goodies For You! Get Your Free Goodies Here!

Hi guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to this week’s tutorial. Let’s draw together.

 

In this week’s tutorial, I’ll be drawing some Hibiscus and Plumeria. A little tropical bouquet in Procreate, so I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along, all the way to the end. So if you feel rushed, don’t worry about it, just hit pause and rewind to catch up or save this video to your library so you can get some practice in. Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate and don’t forget, once you’ve finish this entire video, to share it on Instagram, tag me in the image, as well as the description, so I can find your artwork and feature you here in the next Draw It Together video. So for this video, as always I’ve made you a color pallet just in case you wanna use the same colors as me, you don’t have to, certainly, but if you do, that’s there for you in the description below. And also below you’ll find a link to the goodie bag, were you can grab some free goodies and support me by visiting my shop there and see what’s going on.

 

So I’ve made my canvas at 4000 x 4000 pixels, sRGB and 300 DPI. So let’s jump in, I’m just gonna grab some black and start sketching, so I’m just gonna go to my sketching in my brushes library here and just grab my 6B, I have it at about 60%, hopefully you can see that and we’re just gonna get started by doing some basic shapes. So first with our flowers, I’m just gonna sort of map them out where I want them to go, I’m gonna have one sort of on an angle here, one over here. Sort of cozying up together. I don’t know, something like all these little guys tucked in here. Maybe some guys over there. Maybe my leaves come out here and here, there maybe a little… I don’t know how I want it to go. Little scoop there. Already, I’m making a nice old mess and that’s great.

 

 

 

But I’m gonna just figure out where my center points are, so I wanna just set it back a little bit, not quite so on the center, and just sort of figure out where everything is gonna be. So the little stamen part is gonna be there. I’m gonna bring my first leaf like this, and this guy will be like, in here, this guy will be saved there, I think that will overlap that way. I’m just gonna make sure that… Oops, sorry. Make sure you know where that’s overlapping there. And this guy will be like that and this one will be sort of in the back. Just make sure I’ve got that, like so. Okay. Next this guy, will be sort of… There’ll be a different… There’s kind of two sorts of looking Hibiscus that I’ve found that one’s a little bit more frillier than the other. One has a little bit of a different center. So let’s see what we can do with this. This guy, it’s gonna sort of scoop like that, I’ll have a leaf coming out, this is a little bit more frilly one. Hopefully you can follow along with this, I feel like this is really messy, but it will become clear in a bit. So maybe he’ll be like that, come over here, and he’ll be like sort of here, something like that. And let’s see, this guy is coming around here. One in the back. Okay, so that’s gonna connect like that. So you see that sort of a fold over and that’s underneath. If that makes any sense. And that’s gonna come up around there. Okay, again, sorry, this looks very messy.

Let’s just start making sense of this all. Okay, so here are these… Oh gosh, what are these called? Oh, Plumeria. That’s what it is, Plumeria. So they’re pretty simple, they’re kind of like, almost like little star shapes, I kinda think sometimes. So they have a center. But their center sort of wraps, it’s not really like a dot. Sort of maybe like a pinwheel, maybe that would be a better way to describe it. Alright, and then I’ll have some Plumeria leaves like this… Oops. This and that’ll come out like that. Okay, so there’s that. This guy is gonna be one of those pokey looking plants, so I’ll just have… I’m not gonna draw them all in right now, but we know what it’s going to be like, just gonna do sort of the general direction of the dots there. This is gonna come down and it’s gonna be one of these very tropical looking leaves. So I am going to do kind of like that.

 

And it’s kind of like they’ve been… They’ve got little holes in them. So once I kinda have a shape, I can just grow it in easily, make my lines here. And sometimes they have little holes in the middle, so you can add those. They’re fairly irregular and again, the little holes make all the difference, makes it look really cool. Okay, so you can kinda see how that would work, sort of. Alright and then this, this is more of a banana leaf, it’s gonna kinda come in like that a little bit… A little bit frilly. Okay, and I’m just gonna do some more type of Plumeria leaves, so just the smaller version, smaller variation and they always have five leaves, so make sure you get that in there. There may be one over here. I’m telling you to get five, but I’m not gonna do it. I’m gonna have to make sure I’ve got them in here. There we go.

 

Okay, that’s probably good for our very rough sketch here. My goodness. I hope, I’m just kind of showing you how I normally do it, that this is sort of how I map something out. It’s messy, it’s not pretty, but it gets the job done. So let’s go and knock this old pastie back. Just hit click on the end and bring it back to about, I don’t know, 20% or so, and just add a new layer by hitting that plus sign. So I’m gonna go and grab my colors here. I’m gonna start with this flower. It’s going to be orange, so I’m gonna grab that orange. And I’m just going to… Let’s go and grab my favorite pen, I’m gonna go to inking and dry ink. And I’m going to have that at higher than that. I’m gonna have it more at 8%. That’s better, okay. So I’m just gonna bring out this stamen here and it’s gonna have sort of these little bumpies, so make it quite bumpy, like that. And then it has little circlies at the top. Okay, and then we’re gonna do the leaves. You are gonna push the front pressures on your brush and just keep it a little bit loose, make the little folds and just be lighter, a little bit lighter pressure, a little bit heavier, and just to make it a little bit irregular. Maybe make some ripples, so you can have a bit of folds.

 

That’s gonna come in there. Okay, this guy’s gonna be in front. And this one will be in the back. Okay, so if I turn off the layer below, you can be a little bit easier. So you have our shape. We’ve got five petals. And now I’m gonna make them look a little bit more like petals. So you can do that by bringing these… Just taking a line here… Oops. Taking a line and just pushing a little bit in and gently bringing it towards the center, and then just sort of making it look like that these little creases. All making sure that it goes towards the center, so you have that direction right. And you can bring some out from the center as well, just push that back and push this part down. And we will do that with our line work as well as with our colors. I’m just gonna bring these in. So you can see it’ll start to look a little more petal-like. Maybe a little curve. Just make sure that that makes sense, that line, that they’re going in the same direction.

 

Okay, so you can see we’ve brought this mess, which you can’t really tell what it is, to that. So that makes more sense, and that will look a lot better when we color it in. Okay, so let’s get to the next flower. So I’m gonna do that on another layer. You don’t have to. It’s just how I like to work. It’s just my personal preference. I love layers. If you’ve watched this channel for a little bit, you’ll know that. It’s just so I can go back and make any color changes that I need to. So I’ve gone in and grabbed my dark purple, here. We’re gonna make this next hibiscus purple. It’s a little bit different, a little less structured than this, a little bit looser and frillier. So let’s see if we can manage that. So the center point on this one is a little bit different. It’s a little bit thicker and wider, so that’s just… And it doesn’t have these little doodads at the end there. So I’m just doing little sort of C shapes, sort of numbly bits to make this in here. Maybe a little bit heavier on one side, just to create that sort of shadow look. Maybe a little lighter, maybe some dots on the other side, just to fill it in.

 

Okay, so I’m just going to bring up this. It’s gonna be a little frilly bit here. It’s gonna come… Oops. Come in behind here. And this is gonna come up here, and little wigglies here, kinda give that a little depth there. And let’s see, kinda like how we did those fish tails last week. It’s a similar kind of design I’m doing with the edges. So I told you last week, they’re meant to look a little bit flower like, their tails. So that’s kind of what I meant by that. Alright, this is gonna be straight, and then this is gonna be wiggly. And it’s gonna come up and over here. And bringing in the underneath part, so you could see how it folds over, hopefully. And let’s just get this guy underneath while we’re here, as well.

 

Okay, so that’s good. And this, let’s see how I’m doing this, this leaf is coming around here, it’s gonna make it go on that little edge there. Put some difference here, and I’ll bring these edges here just to make it look like it’s the under side. Okay. Alright. So that guy has always leaves on and I’m gonna turn this off for you so we can go in and see it again, with all the lines. So just gonna bring this in. I’m just trying to decide which way I wanted to curve, if I want it to go more this way. Opps.

 

 

 

And that leaf will just kind of be in behind here as well, just to fill in that gap. I think that’ll look nice. Okay, so we have our two main flowers. Now let’s go and do those Plumeria here. So, we can sort of see them. Let’s add a new layer just by hitting the plus sign, and I’m going to just grab… Actually, you know what, I’m gonna use a brown here. We’re gonna add this ’cause they’re gonna be white, so I’m just gonna outline them with brown. So these ones go like this. You’re gonna have this little lip here. You’ll see what I mean in a second. That’ll go into there, and then just make it a lip like that. Okay, so the next one is just gonna go like that, and if we can see about that, a little lip there. Let’s just get this guy. That’s what sort of gives them their look. And that’s gonna tuck under there, okay? So let’s see, you can see that? And, oops, I missed a line. There, that’ll make more sense.

 

And next, we’re gonna have this one, it’s gonna be a little bit different because I wanna have one of these just make sort of a… Oh, I don’t know what shape this would be. Like that. Oops, just make a little shape like this here, hopefully you can see this. A little wiggle, a little bump, and around, and then we’re gonna bring this line in here. And it will have a little lip. This in here, it will too, so you can see that’s the one we’re going from an angle, so hopefully that works out for you there. I’m gonna give that a little lip there. Okay. So, hopefully, that makes sense. Alright, let’s just get these little guys in here, and then we can get to our leaves next.

 

 

 

Alright, so let’s take a look. Okay. Next, we will go on to our leaf layer, so I’m gonna hit that plus sign again and just grab the dark green and start doing this. So this guy is pretty straightforward, just a bunch of spikes, so just start with your main one that way, and then from there, just to make sure that you know that this line is here. Actually, we can just draw it in. I’m just gonna draw it on the one side because we might have some of these bumps, little overlapping a little bit and let’s just see. So I can kind of have them coming out from there.

 

 

 

Alright. And then let’s go to this guy, and let’s just do the outline first and then I’ll do the inside, I think. Let’s just outline.

 

 

 

Okay I’m gonna come in here and just give him a little veining here, so the veins are just gonna go sort of loose up here. I’m actually gonna make them so I can color them in. That’s a little thick to me. Why can’t I get this?

 

 

 

Okay, that should be fine. Let’s have a look. Okay, just made a line there. Alright, and last leaf. I’m just gonna bring in the vein here and then work off of that, so that’s just gonna be… Some of the lines here, it’s a little bit of a shaggy one, and it’s kind of like a brush, sort of. And give it some breaks, like here are some gaps, something like that, and then just giving that back side a little bit. So lets turn this off so you can see better, just some of the wispy lines here. Okay, so now we have our outline ready to go, so now I’m just gonna fill it in really quick I’ll probably just speed that up, and all I’m gonna do is go underneath each layer, so I’m gonna select the layer below my orange, I’m gonna create a new layer. I’m gonna grab the yellow, and then I’m gonna go to my studio pen, just ’cause it’s a solid, any solid fill brush will do, and I’m just gonna go in and fill it in.

 

I’m gonna go to the layer below my purple one and grab a new layer and that light purple, and the same thing. Actually, I’m gonna grab this, these two layers and bring them below that yellow one, ’cause that needs to tuck in behind there, so make sure you do that first, otherwise, you’re gonna be coloring on top. Okay next, I’m gonna draw up my background layer, so you can see this. I’m going to actually bring this below the purple layer as well, and just put a new layer and grab the white to do these Plumeria.

 

 

 

Okay, we go and then we’ll bring our leaves down to the very bottom and create a new layer and grab the lighter green, and then we can just go and fill this all in.

 

 

 

So we have all our fills in, so we’re ready to just paint it up a little bit more. So I’m gonna go over top, add a new layer and let’s just get these old stamens in here looking a little better. So I’m gonna just color them white right now, just fill those in, or still these with… I have my studio pen, you could use the ink brush too if you wanted. Create another layer. Okay, so now we can see those a little bit better, then let’s just get to making these look a little nicer so on top of the yellow layer, I’m going to create a new layer and do a clipping mask and grab this pink color to start. I’m gonna go into my brushes and grab the… Where I’m I gonna go? I’m gonna go to painting, if I can see it, painting and grab the gouache, gouache is gonna be at… I wanna say five. No, let’s say 15 and just lightly start to create some depth in the center and it’s gonna have some other colors. Let’s see what happens when we click on the end and turn this to multiply, so I kinda like that better, see how that comes through.

 

Okay, and then I’m gonna go and grab the orange, still with my gouache, I’m gonna bring that down maybe again to five, or back down to five, and just have some… Oops, and I’m gonna have the opacity actually at about 35%, and just make some little shadows in here just along those lines that we made.

 

 

 

And then I’m actually gonna use my blender brush. I don’t use it very often, but I am gonna go in, and… Actually let’s just go to painting and get the gouache. So it’s the same one and we’re gonna have that at about 5% and 100% opacity and… Actually, no, I’m gonna go down to 30%, 35 somewhere there, and just make it this little blend. So again blend this out just a little bit, so it looks a little bit more blended. Whatever look you wanna go for really. That’s just another way of painting. So that kinda works better. So I’m actually gonna do something a little different ’cause I really want this darker in the center, but I still wanna keep the tips a little bit lighter, so I’m actually gonna go and color my line layer. So, I’m gonna click on the line-layer, hit the plus sign clipping mask. And let’s go and grab this brown. Still with the gouache, we still have it, maybe pop it up to 10% or so, you can keep it at 35. Let’s just darken these. You see how that makes that pop a little bit just in the center, ’cause I just wanted to create more depth there. Okay, I like that way better. Let’s just give this a little color too. Just this part. Okay. That’s good.

 

And then I’m just gonna go to the white and I’m going to grab… Maybe we can stay on this brown, that’s okay. Let’s just bring this way down to about 3. Actually, no, I don’t like that brown. Scratch that, grab the orange. Let’s just give it a little shadow, again probably more in the center just to push it back. Okay, so that’s probably good. Let’s move on to our purple one. I’m going to just color in the white layer and let’s just stay on the orange and just pop some color in there, just a rub on the underside is fine, and you can just dot it in too. So you still have that highlight which is nice. Okay, then let’s go to the purple layer, click on that, click plus sign, tap on it and then clipping mask. Grab that dark purple, still with our gouache, let’s just paint in some lines.

 

 

 

Just trying to make it look less flat, of which of course you can keep it that way, why not, that is a look, but I’m just trying to make it look so that you can tell the difference between the petals, so bringing those out a little bit. Having a shadow behind will help. Okay, so we can get our blender brush, keeping it the same, you can just go in and soften some of those edges, making one side hard, one side soft, if you want. You can’t really wreck it at this point ’cause you can still go in and put some more paint on it and undo that and fix that, that’s the great thing about Procreate, we can always fix pretty much anything.

 

 

 

Alright, let’s go ahead and bring that opacity up to 100%, just so that I can get some more of the little darkness in here, and then I’m just gonna smooth it out a little bit, I’m actually gonna pop a little color in there, so let’s grab this pink. Just add a little bit in here, just in the very center. Yeah, that’s good. Alright, let’s see. Now, let’s do these guys here ’cause they need some orange in the center, so let’s go to our Plumeria layer and hit the plus sign and grab a clipping mask, get the yellow to start, I’m just gonna put in some yellow, we’re still on our gouache, we’re still at about 5%, and now we’re at 100% opacity. So just bring these in the center of the leaves here or the petals, rather. And then we’re gonna blend them out a bit, just a touch. Okay, and then grab that orange and put that closer to the center. Okay, and then grab your blender and just really make sure that, that just sticks in the center there. There we go. Now, what I would do is just grab my eraser and bring it way down to about 2%, and just make sure that these edges don’t have anything on them, ’cause they wouldn’t make sense, so to keep them nice and white. Okay, that defines them there. So the same thing to these guys. Grab that orange, grab the blender, just blend those centers, and then you can just do the edges a little bit, if need be.

 

Okay, good stuff. And let’s do the leaves, just get some color on there, so grab your leaf fill and that plus sign and a clipping mask, grab the dark green. I’m just gonna bring up my brush quite large and just give it a regular tap. I’m gonna go in the center of this guy here, get the shadow, maybe on the tips here, you know what I mean? Just sort of give it a little splashy paintiness. Don’t need much, I think that’s probably good. We can go and make up a lighter green too, if you wanna just to give it a little more, maybe bring down the opacity. And I’ll just play with it a little bit. Okay, actually with this lighter green, I’ll add it for you. I’m gonna grab my inking brush again, the dry ink and just go in this little vein here. I think I’ll just add a little something, maybe we’ll just have that in there, maybe just like a couple highlights on a few, in the center, when the light’s hitting it. Maybe a little in here.

 

Okay, I think that’s good. I’m gonna do the same thing to the flowers as well, so let’s go back to our clipping mask layer, grab that light purple, I’m gonna make an even lighter purple and maybe just… I don’t know where the light sort of hits, or we can add a few… Oops, little highlights. I don’t know, wherever you think they might happen to be. Something like that. Alright, and then the yellow, grab that clipping mask layer, it’s gonna be nearly white at that point. Oops, what’s happening? Oh, I’m not sure. Oh, I know why, because I have it on multiply. So I’m going to add a… Well, actually, I’ll just go on this layer here, the stamen layer, just add some highlights there. You could blend these a bit too, if you wanted not so liney, that’s totally something I might do. Alright, so I think… Actually I’m gonna just do what I did to that other one, I’m gonna go to the line layer of the purple, add a new layer, clipping mask, and grab the dark… I’m actually just gonna go to my painting with the gouache 100% and just darken these lines in here a little bit. There. Just needed a little pop. I think that’s better.

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.

Shop My Illustrations

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.

Get Your Free Goodie Bag

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.

How to Draw Toadstools and Mushrooms – Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

Hi guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to this week’s tutorial. Let’s draw together!

In this week’s tutorial we’ll be drawing some cute little toad stools on Procreate and I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along all the way to the end of the video. If you feel rushed, be sure to hit that pause button or just rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can re-watch if you need some extra practice. Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate. And don’t forget, once you’ve finished this entire video, share it on Instagram and tag me in the image, as well as the description, so I can find your artwork and feature you here in the next Draw Together video. And I’ve made you a free color palette as usual, just in case you’d like to use the exact same colors I’ll be using during this video, and you can just tap on the link in the description below where you can download and install it into Procreate. Also, below you can find a link to the goodie bag where you can grab some free goodies I’d love to give to you and support me by visiting my shop.

 

Let’s jump in by setting up our canvas at 4,000 x 4,000 pixels, 300 DPI and SRGB. I’m gonna start by describing my 6B pencil. It’s in your sketching section, 100 opacity, and let’s see, that’s probably good, it’s at about 40. And let’s just start by getting some shapes, as usual. So, our first little guy is gonna be sort of wide and squat.  So, we’re gonna start with sort of a shape like that. And then there’s going to be sort of a triangle type shape here and then another triangle below. So already we have something that looks a little bit vaguely familiar like a mushroom. So, we’re gonna want to see a little bit under the cap, so I’m gonna start creating that there. And this is gonna be a little irregular, not exactly, just completely round at the top. And maybe this is gonna be like that. Okay, and so then, the underneath part we know will be here. And then, this is, of course, gonna be coming across this line, so we can erase this if we wanna see. And this would be coming like this. I’m gonna make this a little bit shorter, actually. Something like that. And then, the stalk will be about like that.

 

I think that’s pretty good. Maybe we’ll make this even a little bit more unusual here. I like to scribble a bit. Just make it not so quite… The depth, not perfectly in the center, maybe. Alright, something like that. Okay, so that’s pretty good. Pretty good idea of we want. Maybe this wants to be a little bit rounder. I think that’s good. Okay. So, that’s our first little guy. And then, our second one, actually, I’m just gonna use my arrow just to move him over a touch and we’ll just maybe shrink him down a little bit. And then, I’m just gonna draw the next one, just so we have everything on one sketch layer. So next, I’m gonna draw my other little one and he’s gonna be, I don’t know, kind of the ones with those sort of funny shaped hats like this.  Like this, little scoop, and he’ll have quite a curved stalk or stem or whatever they are.  I’m gonna just grab my little selector tool and highlight this and just move this guy over a little bit.

 

Actually, while I’m doing that, gonna grab my selector again and just grab this top here, use my arrow and just, I’m gonna make him a little bit more on an angle. A little bit more attitude. Alright. And then, the other guy is gonna come like that, quite curved. Now we’re gonna see the underside of the mushroom here. So, it’s gonna be like a circle, so just sorta loosely draw an oval and then you’ll see kinda the top of the cap there. So, that’s gonna be the underside. You kinda get the idea there. Okay, and then we’ll just do some grasses there, and some grasses there. Okay. So, that’s just our sketch. I’m gonna move them around a little bit. Why don’t we do that now, actually. So, we’re gonna just select this guy and we’ll just size him down a little bit, move him over here. And then, grab our selector tool again, grab this, the arrow, size him down, maybe so we can fit, fit them on the same plane.

 

Okay. Good, that should be fine. Okay. So, next, why don’t we turn down that sketch layer to about 23%, 25%, somewhere there, and create a new layer by hitting the plus sign. Then I’m gonna go and grab just this darker brown color at the end. And then, one of my favorites, as you know, go into inking and grab that dry ink brush. So, we’re gonna have this at, let’s say about 5% and go in and make our final line work. So, I’m also gonna add some little bumps to this guy. So, I’m gonna do that while I do my good lines here. So, I’m just gonna go in and do my line work and then I’m gonna go over top and add some details in a bit. So, we’re just gonna go and keep it fairly sketchy looking, as usual. Just sorta the look we’re going for, the handmade sort of rough paper look. Just keep it squiggly, just different pressures with your pen. I didn’t like how I did that. Okay, not drawing them up very nicely. That’s better.

 

Okay, and the underside is gonna be quite a bit wigglier, so you can get in there, get some little nubbley bits. Okay. Okay. Okay. Making sure these lines match up. Actually, before I do this lower part, I’m gonna just do some grass, so just so it has something sort of to sit-in. So just some, you know, little wiggly bits and then some actual bigger grass, and you can just come over here and maybe they cross like that. Yeah. Whatever, it’s up to you with this part, you can have fun with it. Maybe some little rocks in there or something like that, you never know, little bits. Okay. So now we can draw a line over here, so it’s growing into the grass, I don’t want those lines to cross like that. Alright. Good. So you can see, turn off our sketch layer. We’ve got a funny little mushroom and next, we’ll go… Might as well keep this on our line layer, we’ll do this guy.

 

And I’m just gonna bring this lip up a little bit, kinda give it a little thickness. Okay. So again, I’ll do the grass, same thing, little bits. Perfect. Okay, so that helps us bring this line in here. Good. Alright. So for this guy, we wanna round that out. Okay. And then he’s gonna have kinda two layers, so let’s… Here I’ll show you. So you come around the top, just gonna be lighter around there. Just kinda the illusion of that lip there. And then on the inside, there’s gonna be sort of this, I don’t know, the fleshier bit of the mushroom. Okay. And then the cap will be like that. Okay. So, we can turn off our layer now, our sketching layer. So let’s go into a few details and while we’re here looking at this guy, some details will be making this fleshy bit kind of make sense. ‘Cause right now this looks like it’s floating and that’s not very good. So we’re gonna kinda scoop, kinda like eyelashes actually, kind of a line like that.

 

And they don’t have to be perfect, you want like a few little ones, you know? Keep it sketchy. A few can come in from the top, just keep it light, push harder in a few areas. Just kind of give it that texturey sort of look. And it makes sense of how the folds of the meat part of the mushroom go. It’s kinda skim your pencil along a little bit. Okay, so that makes a bit more sense, right? Okay, good. And with this color, we can do the little spots that are gonna be on here. They’ll have their little… Oops. I made those a little bit too symmetrical for my taste. Little sets, maybe he’ll have one down here. And of course, they don’t have to be perfect circles, just make them kind of a regular. Okay. I’m just gonna draw sort of a little bit of an extra line here, giving it a little bit more of that look. Okay, like that, sort of giving a few shadow lines sort of here, ’cause our shadow’s gonna be on our right side. Maybe just a few. Okay, so that’s good for those guys. This guy, I’m gonna work with this color on the inside and then I’m gonna do some detail with a different color on the top.

 

So, let’s just… Let me pull a few lines in there and do the same thing on the bottom stuff. And I’m gonna do a little inner line again in here. Not a perfect line, kinda spaced out, dotty, sketchy. Okay. And then doing some of these lines just like we did in the other one. Create that look and just slowly sort of bring it out, rounding it out. Sometimes I like to make them further, you know, the whole thing and then go back and fill it in, just so I have them all sorted from the right, shape and curve. So again, I’m just kind of mapping out just how it would… Wooden should go. Okay, so that’s probably alright for that guy. Okay, and then I’m gonna go and grab… Actually, I’m gonna do a new layer and just grab this orange color and I’m gonna make these funny little nubbley bits all over the top here, just… They’re not gonna be flat to it, they’re gonna have a little raised effect, so that’s why I’m gonna go over top, so they’re gonna come up and over the line, they’re gonna be sitting above it. So these are just gonna be totally regular and just all over the place.

 

Okay. That’s probably enough. Maybe do a couple more. All right. Okay, so let’s, next, color those dots and just while we’re here, I’m gonna go to the layer below and select a new layer and grab that sort of yellowy beigey color right beside that orange, and I’m gonna go and grab the studio pen ’cause it’s solid and fill those in right now.

 

 

 

Okay. I think I got them all. Okay. Then next we’re gonna go underneath again… Actually, click on your old sketched layer and add a new layer there. What I’m gonna do is actually fill on all my shapes with a solid fill so that then I can now go over with clipping masks and paint it without worrying about going over the edges, ’cause when you’re making clipart, you want everything to be nice and tidy and not… Well, unless it’s a specific look, but not have messy edges. I’m gonna do that next, and I’m going to just select this sort of pinky color and grab the studio pen still. Oh, and the studio pen was just on 18, sorry, I probably didn’t mention that and just fill this top cap in.

 

 

 

Okay. Next, I’m going to go below that, so again hit on layer one, add a new layer. I’m gonna use this light beige color. Actually, you know what I’m gonna do, is turn off my background layer, so you can see this, otherwise, it be might be a little bit light. Let’s go ahead and we’ll just get this, the lower part of the mushroom done. Okay. I’m just gonna… Actually, I’m just gonna drag it across and fill it, that’s fine. And then I’m gonna just put a layer on top of that and fill it in as well so that each piece is on a separate layer. That way it’ll make it easier for my clipping masks to work and just stay in these areas that we need them to. All this, we can just go straight across ’cause we’ll put our grass over top. Okay, and then while we’re here, we might as well do the grass, so I’ll add a new layer and grab this green and we can just fill this in.

 

 

 

Okay. So, with that let’s just grab the dry ink and pop that up to, I don’t know, 28%, kinda come in here and just to fade it out, just ’cause this has a nice scratchy edge, we can kinda do that, and that just allows us not to have that hard, hard edge. Maybe we will go around our little rocks and color those in a bit. Okay, actually I’ll just do that. There you can have a kind of a regular. Perfect. Okay, and while we’re here, let’s just go back to the studio pen and fill in this grass.

 

 

 

Most of the time while I’m doing clipart, I would have these two separate mushrooms on as two separate projects, but for these purposes just for showing you different types of little toadstools or just having it around one. Okay, so then I’m gonna just go grab that drawing ink again and just get that in there, perfect. Okay. So we can go to the layer below layer seven, the one that has the stalk on that side and back to studio pen and… Let’s see. We all make these… I’m gonna stick with a lighter beige for now, and I’m gonna… I’ll warm them up later. So again, we are at 20%, 100% opacity, and let’s just fill these guys in. You can do the whole thing on one layer.

 

 

 

Okay, this one, I’m not gonna do the fleshy part, that one I’m gonna do on a separate layer, so I’m just gonna do the edge here.

 

 

 

Okay. And then back to this layer, this part, the underneath part, layer six and let’s just fill this guy in here. Okay. So now I’m just gonna turn back on my background color, have a look, see what’s going on. Great, okay. So what I’m gonna do next is create a clipping mask and we’re gonna do that on here. Okay, so I’m gonna select the number five, the red top, and I’m gonna hit the plus sign, click on it and hit clipping mask. Okay, so this way our paint won’t go outside of this shape, alright. So let’s go and pick this darker red here, and I’m gonna go and pick a different brush, I’m going to go to artistic and select the hearts and it’s gonna be at about 55%, at about 30% precise. We’re just gonna lightly just sort of get some little gritty, some shadows here, so darker on this side. Again, most of our shadows are gonna be on the right and a little underneath, just kind of not too much over there. Just trying to give it a little bit of texture, you can maybe tap your pen a little bit, see what happens you get a little flaky bits, dry bits of paint kind of. Okay, that’s good. And then I’m gonna go to this sort of warmer browny color, kind of same thing. Actually, let’s pop this up to about 65 and lower the opacity to about 30. Just give it a little light, light bit here. Just sort of gringy.

 

Okay. And then I’m going to add another layer and also add that as a clipping mask and bring in this light pink here. So I’m gonna go and grab my gouache, it’s gonna be in painting right above. Let’s just find it here. Here we are. Good old gouache. Let’s bring it down to about, I don’t know. Hang on, it’s not gonna show there, 15%, maybe 6%. That’ll probably be better. I just wanna make sure that I have a little bit of a light. You know what, this needs to be lighter, so I’m gonna give you that, gonna make it a touch warmer too. Okay, let’s try that. Just give it a little highlight somewhere in there. Okay, let me add that color for you. Okay. And then let’s finish off this guy before we move on to the next one. Again, I’m going to go to this layer, the layer with the underneath part, the plus sign, click on it, hit clipping mask and then I’m going to get this warmy brown color. Actually, let’s start with this one, the one beside it, the little bit darker beige, and we can stay on gouache, we can bring it up to about 30% just… Okay, that’s a little hard. Just slightly, get in there. Do you see how wonderful that is we can paint and you don’t have to worry about anything. Okay. And then grab that warmer brown, go back to artistic, click on hearts.

 

We’ll just keep our settings the same, so that’s that… Actually no, let’s bring it up to 30%. We can stay at around 40% opacity, and just more in the center, I’m gonna concentrate on just kind of warming up, texturizing that a little bit near the center. Okay, so that’s probably good for that part. And then here, the stalk, the stem, whatever you wanna call it, we’re gonna add another layer, you guessed it, clipping mask. Yeah, let’s stay on this, warm brown, back to gouache. Gouache will be at about 28%, and just start to give this a little, little layers, little color, a little love. Okay, that looks good. Alright, and then let’s get the grass while we’re here too. I’m gonna click on the grass, hit the plus to clipping mask. I kind of like this hearts brush, so let’s grab the darker green, go back to the hearts and just kinda give it a little… Let’s see. We’re gonna give it some texture here. There we go. Beauty. Let’s do this here while we’re at it. Great. Okay, I think that’s good. So let’s move on to these guys, and we’ll go back to this layer, layer seven, and we can remain on this clipping mask we already created and I’m going to use this, oh gosh, medium beige, warmer medium beige, back to painting, back to gouache, carry on with the… What are we at? 30%, give it a little bit of that.

 

Maybe bring it down to 10 just to get underneath here. Okay, that’s good. And then back to layer six or the underneath parts, we can hit on that clipping mask, stick with this color and this brush color the same quite a bit darker. Grab that, yeah, the… This one, the one beside the darker beige and to artistic hearts, especially throughout the center where we are at, let’s bring it down to 20% and about 50% opacity. Just kinda get in there. Give it a few dabs. There. Good stuff. Okay, and then we need to do our little dots. So lets just go up to layer 10, so I’m behind my line layer, adding another layer there, so let’s grab this light color here and add a new layer, I’m gonna be on top of layer 10 right below our line layer and just fill these. You know what? That’s not light enough, so let’s just change that. Let’s test it out. I think so, maybe even as the hair type, lighter. Okay, I’m gonna add this for you too. So the lightest light, that’s better. We want it to show up. Alright, and there we have a couple of cute toadstools.

How To Draw A Casual Fashion Girl in Procreate

Hey guys, and welcome back to another studio vlog!

I’m Kris, and it’s another day of homeschooling your kids. So fun.

 

So glad you’re here. And today I’m gonna be demoing a project I’m working on and show you how to draw a fashion girl in procreate at the same time. It’s actually a stamp brush or a sort of a guide for drawing people. I wanted it for myself because I’m gonna do a project with a bunch of people in it. A

nd so I kind of wanted to get some body positions together. So I thought this would be really helpful for anyone if you just kinda wanted to do a quick drawing and just have the structure done and you don’t have to think about proportions and all that kind of stuff.

So I made it initially for myself, but now I’m going to share it with you. So today, I’m gonna demo it and actually kind of test it out and see if it’s working for me. So I’m gonna draw another sort of coffee girl kind of thing and see how that goes.

 

So I’m sure we’re all in the same boat. Life has been a little bit different, the boys are home all the time and my husband, so we have a really full house. They’re doing work in my office a lot, and that’s lovely and distracting all at the same time.

But all good. So I hope you guys are safe and hang in there. But hopefully this will be entertaining for you and you’ll enjoy it and find it really useful so let’s get to it.

 

 

Alright, so that’s it for today. I’m so excited that worked out so well, saved a ton of time and just, yeah, completely knocked it off in like, I don’t know, an hour or if not more, just getting those body positions and stuff so easy. So I’m super excited about that.

I’m gonna make my life easier. Hopefully, when I get it done, it’ll make your life easier too. So if you did like this video throw on a thumbs up there and subscribe, if you haven’t already.

So don’t forget if you’re new here that I do have a link below for some free goodies, I’d love to give to you. Some graphics goodies that are free to you. So I hope you and your family doing well, you’re safe and sound. And I just really appreciate you taking the time to watch this video and be here, and I hope to see you next week? So later guys. Take care.

How to Draw Tropical Fish – An Underwater Sea Adventure Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

Hi guys, I’m Kris, welcome to this week’s tutorial, Let’s Draw Together!

In this week’s tutorial, we’ll be drawing two fish in Procreate, and I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along all the way to the end. If you feel rushed, be sure to hit that pause button, rewind to catch up, and just save this video to your library so you can rewatch it for extra practice. Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate, and don’t forget, once you finish this entire video, to share it on Instagram and tag me in the image as well as the description, so I can find your artwork and feature you here on the next Draw Together video.

 

Free Color Palette

For this video, I’ve made you a free color palette, just in case you wanna use the exact same color as me during this tutorial, and you can just tap on the link in the video description below where you can download and install it. Also below, you’ll find a link to the goodie bag, where you can grab some free goodies and support me by visiting my shop. So let’s get started, and I’ll set up my canvas as the usual 4000 x 4000, 300 DPI and SRGB. So let’s start with our sketch, and I’m just gonna grab black here and get our 6B pencil just for our sketch. Let’s see, I have it at… What is it now? About 40, 50, just so you can see. So I’m gonna just start with our first fish. He’s gonna be a bit boxy. So I’m gonna draw a box, and then his little nose and whatnot are gonna come here, and it’s pretty thin. And just sort of curve like that. And this is actually gonna curve, just a little bit more rounded. Here, and come up… Sort of around like that.

 

Okay, so that’s basically the shape of his body. And then he’s gonna have this little… Just a little fin that comes here. Here he is. Okay, and then he’s got a little tail at the back. Of course, it’s kinda like… That, I’m gonna make it kinda wiggly a little… Fancier. Alright. His eye’s gonna go about here, and we’re gonna have a pattern on him, so he’s gonna be stripy, and this one will go over his eye, or behind his eye. This one, sort of like that, and it will go along the top here, sort of like that. So this one is gonna kinda be inset, so it’s not gonna touch, something like that. And then this guy is also gonna be inset, and then it’ll have this other eye-type-looking thing, something like that. We’ll put a little white spot in there too. Okay, so that’s our first guy.

Our second guy is a little Nemo fish. So he’s gonna be more of a rectangle. To start with. Or he can be an oval if you want to. And he’s gonna have his little face here. And then he’s got a fin that starts here, sort of like that, like a camel, a camel back,  two lumps. Goes like this. So this is sort of a section here. Sort of a section there, that’s where his fin’s going to be. I’ll bring it in for you. His fin’s gonna be there. Another fin from behind, it’s gonna be over there. And then he has a little bit of a longer tail in proportion, compared to our other guy there. Okay, so they have… Oops, it’s a little close, and sort of like a… Some stripes here. I’ll give him an eye, would be nice. Something like that. And then, yeah, you have a pattern that kinda goes like this, these edges are trimmed, and this one, you’ll kind of have an inset design here, and set sort of design there. Okay, so that’s our basic sketch, so let’s start with that, and I’m going to just go to my layers palette, click on the N and bring back that opacity to about… Oh, I don’t know, 15, 20%, something in there. And then I’m going to create a new layer to do my line-work on. So I’m just gonna hit that plus sign, and I’m gonna go in and do some nicer work on this.

 

So I’m gonna go to my favorite brush, inking, dry ink. Let’s see what line thickness we want on here. Maybe about seven? Seven percent, 100% opacity. Alright, let’s get these lines going. So it’s a fish, so again it doesn’t have to be perfect. Well, certainly not perfectly straight. I just want to scoop out the nose a little bit more there. Give him a little mouth. Bring that in. Yeah, so just trace over your work, making it look a little nicer.  Like that. And for this, I’m gonna make it like a fabric fold. It’s not really realistic to what the fish is, but, I don’t know, I kinda like it. So I’m just gonna do some really squiggly lines like this. Maybe not quite at the end like that, I don’t like how I overlapped that.

 

Oops. There. Okay, so this part… You see these ones… Actually, I’m gonna shut off my background layer for you while we do this, just so we can see that better. So what I’m gonna do is bring these where the… Not the edges of the curves, but, you see the outer part of the curves? You kinda push and then bring it down. It kinda makes a fold, and then this, you’d see the back side of it. That’s how you kinda make these little folds here. I don’t know, I think that’s kinda fun for our fish. While we’re here, this guy has some stripes. I’m just gonna make irregular lines. Here, as they would go. Kinda follow the lines of how this wiggles here. There. Okay, sounds good. We’ll turn back on our sketch layer, so we can see what we’re doing. Color in this eye. I just gonna color it in myself. Okay. And let’s do some stripes.

 

 

Oops. I don’t like how this is pointed here, so I’m gonna just smooth that out. Make it a little bit more rounded. Okay, let’s get this pattern in here. Alright. Oops, I’m gonna do this too. Okay, so he looks pretty good. Let’s just go and do this little guy right over here. Our Nemo, or clown-fish. Give him a little mouth. Slight underbite, maybe. And these, I’m gonna make kind of a little lacy too. Just irregular wiggly lines going back forth. This is a little smoother there. I go up to his tail, the same thing. Making it a little wiggly, and bringing in these lines. Oops, I don’t like the way that went. Alright, and then the same here. Kinda bringing them in like that. And get his other little fin. Okay. So these guys, we can go and put some lines here too. Alright. That’s good. Let’s fill in his little eye. So these guys have a double layer here, ’cause we’re gonna put black in there, and then white and orange, so we’re gonna do double lines here. Same with this. All of these little details. Oops. This one’s kind of inside of it, it doesn’t go to the edges.

 

Oops. And just follow these. And… Next we can get to coloring this in. Let’s see what we’ve got here, so we’ll turn off our sketch layer. And there we go, there’s our two little fishies, so let’s color them in. So I’m gonna go on my sketch there, click on that, just to get below the line layer, add a new layer, and let’s fill them in. So I’m just gonna go and grab… Actually, I’m gonna grab the white, but I’m gonna turn off my background color, so you can see, so we’ll grab the white. I’m going to grab my… What am I looking for, my studio pen, I’m just gonna fill this in.

 

 

 

Okay, and then I’m gonna drag the color in and fill it up. Do the same to this guy, although I’m just gonna do the white parts, so… Just gonna… I’m gonna bring this down, I have that at 100%, I really don’t need it. I need it at about 40%, maybe. It’s spilling over a little too much. Alright, let’s see. So… Just this part, and then all the little edges. Okay. Oops. Oops, alright. Get that in there, okay. So we have our white done, and then I’m going to go and create a new layer on top. I guess I didn’t have to do that to the other fish, but that’s okay. Let’s get our orange, and we’ll fill in this guy. Oops. I’m going over the wrong area. It doesn’t really matter, but… I’ll just do the gray on top, anyway. Bring my brush down a little bit more to about 20%.

 

Okay. And then I’m going to get… Why don’t we just finish this guy off a little bit with the solid colors while we’re here. Add another layer, and just gotta grab the gray, and just fill in these stripes. And I’ll do solid black, ’cause I think it looks a little bit more interesting when we have the lines black to have the inside a little bit gray. There we go, a little Nemo fish. Looking good. Okay, let’s just add another layer, grab the yellow, and let’s color this guy in.

 

 

Okay, and then… Actually, I’m gonna erase this part, it’s gonna be white. And this part’s gonna be white. Let’s go back to our orange layer and grab the orange again, and just make it on top of the yellow so we can see it, and color that in. Okay, and then this part’s gonna be orange. And I’m gonna grab this brownier color, and color this stripe in here. Right. Okay, so we can turn back on our background layer if we want. Our little fishies. Alright, so they’re looking okay, this is pretty good if we wanna leave them like this, but I’m gonna do a few extra things. So I’m gonna just go at the very top of my sketch layer, and just grab white, and go back to my dry ink, and give them a little dot here. Gives them a little life, I think.

 

Alright, so I’m gonna go to my white layer, select that, and I’m gonna select clipping mask. And I actually need a blue, I’ll have to add this for you here, just for a shadow. I’m gonna grab my… Painting, I’m gonna grab the gouache. And let’s see, what is it at? That’s way too big. Okay. So let’s say around 15. And actually, I want this a little bit more aqua. Let’s see, that’s better. Okay. I’m gonna delete this, add that. Okay. So I’m gonna just give ’em a little shadow below, and just lightly shade that. Okay. Then I’m going to go to the yellow layer, the same thing, add a new layer, clipping mask. I’m gonna grab that orange, still with my gouache.

 

I’m just gonna give it a little, let’s see, just a little orange, just to give it more interest. And then in here I’m gonna just define the folds a bit, so I’m gonna bring my brush way down to about maybe 2%. Get some in there, okay. That looks good. And I’m gonna go to the orange layer, add a new layer, clipping mask. I’m gonna use this brown color, the same thing. Bring this back up to, I don’t know, 10. And then I’m gonna just bring it down to two again. Put a little detail in the grooves there. Gonna have to do the white separately in a minute. I could combine all the layers too, that would be totally fine, I just usually like to work on separate layers, just…

 

And in case I’d like to change the colors or something like that. I don’t think this one we need to, but… Yeah, just sort of how I normally do it, just in case I need to make any changes. So I’m gonna go to my white layer, and just add another layers underneath that, and grab the, actually, the orange. This will be a little bit lighter… Oh, and bring us back up to about 10% again. Just give that a shade there. And down again, back and forth, to two. And we can just give ’em a few shadows in here. Great. Alright. Well, I think that’s it for today. These are our two little fishies. You can add, of course, some bubbles, and some seaweed, and some coral, and all that kind of fun stuff.

 

Actually these are part of a package I just finished. There’s a mermaid package, and there’s tons of under the sea stuff. So I’ll put that in a link in the description below as well, if you’re interested to have a look.

10 Quick Procreate Tips & Tricks – My Fave Shortcuts to Increase Work Flow & Make Art Life Easier

Hi, guys. I’m Kris. Welcome to this week’s tutorial!

So today, we are gonna go into Procreate and I’m gonna show you a couple of my favorite Procreate tips and tricks that will hopefully help you out.

Tip Number One – Quick Hide Or Show Layers

So let’s dive right in with tip number one, quick hide or show layers. So sometimes you have a big project and you have a lot of layers. You know me, I have a ton of layers all the time and sometimes you just need to isolate that layer. So what you wanna do is open up your layers palette and you go to, let’s say for instance, your line layer and all you wanna do is see that.

So you would just go where the check mark is, hold, and it will isolate that layer for you. And so once you’re done, you don’t have to go and check all the boxes. You can just go to that check mark, hold, and they’ll all come back for you.

Tip Number Two – Duplicating Multiple Layers

We still have to select the layers we wanted to duplicate and group them together, and then duplicate that group but now what you can do is just highlight the layers that you wanna duplicate, drag into your canvas and they will duplicate at the top of your layers palette.

Tip Number Three – Making Snap Shapes

Sometimes you want that perfectly shaped circle or perfectly straight line, so here’s how you go about doing that. You might already know this one but just in case, let’s go over it. So if you wanna draw a straight line, you just draw a straight, hold, and it will be a straight line.

If you want it to be aligned vertically or horizontally, or even on an angle perfectly to your canvas, then you just hold down your finger and it will give you the snapping motion. So that’s really useful. And then you can edit your shape. You can make it an arc you wanted or back to a line. Okay, next, we’ll draw a circle. So you draw your circle, you hold and you have a little egg-shaped, a little ellipse. Hold down your finger, then you have a perfect circle.

 

Tip Number Four – Erasing With A Two-Finger Tap

So this one’s my absolute go-to. Of course, it’s erasing with a two-finger tap. So if you’ve made a mistake and simply wanna undo it, of course, you just do a little tap with two fingers. I always use my middle finger and fourth finger just because I’m holding my pen and I find that really easy. But did you know that you can erase multiple mistakes all with just two fingers? So let’s say we have a bunch of mistakes, you hold down your two fingers and boom, they’re gone. So you don’t have to do ta-da-da-da-da. But let me show you something else.

You can also go and adjust the timing of that rapid undo. So you can go to your wrench, go to preferences, rapid undo delay. I like mine at about 0.70, over half a second. If it’s quicker than that, let’s say it’s down to 10, when you hold it, it’s gonna go right away. So giving you that little bit of delay will help because just in case you accidentally were holding down your fingers too long, it’ll just give you a little bit more of a buffer.

 

Tip Number Five – Small Slider Adjustments

We are constantly changing a brush and opacity percentages and sometimes you want that exact number but have trouble getting to that just right away. So if you can see here, it goes pretty fast to get that perfectly accurate but if you bring your pen out to the side, it goes a whole lot slower so you can be way more accurate and precise and get that exact number.

 

Tip Number Six – Small Move Adjustments

So sometimes you need to move over just a touch and it can be difficult to slide it just a few pixels. So with your arrow, sometimes it’s hard just to move it exactly the right spot you want. So by going and just tapping in the direction, if you can see this, it just moves over by pixels, and you can go in any direction you want just by tapping. It will just move a teeniest, tiniest little hair over and sometimes you need that perfect little tweak.

 

Tip Number Seven – Clipping Masks

I know most of you watching this will already know and love this one as much as I do but if you haven’t discovered this gem yet and you have fear of commitment, then be prepared to fall in love with this one ’cause this is my everything.  You add a layer on top of your fill layer or whatever layer you’re working on, tap on it, tap on clipping mask, and that will restrict whatever you do on this top layer to the layer below. So say you wanna change this color and, I don’t know, let’s make it yellow, darker yellow.

I have my gouache. I’m just gonna paint over the top. So I like to do textures and paint effects and this is a really easy way to do it so that I don’t have to be super careful about going over the lines, and you can make multiple clipping masks and do highlights and different textures, and experiment with painting or patterns without actually having to commit to them. And just in case you didn’t like it or you needed to make changes to the color, you can go and do that after. So it just makes it really flexible if you’re wanting to make changes.

 

I can also go in and go to my magic wand, go to hue and saturation, find that layer, and I can change the color that way too. So it’s just a way of working non-destructively and if you haven’t made that choice yet, you don’t have your color palette completely decided on, this is the great way to do it ’cause you can go in and change that any time you want.

 

Tip Number Eight – The Liquefy Tool

I draw a lot of characters and faces and sometimes I get to the end and see that something is a little bit off, and the last thing I wanna do is  redraw anything. So I can just make small adjustments using my liquefy tool. Now, I will say I do use this with the end sometimes but I also use it at the beginning when I’m making my sketches and something’s a little off. It’s just a quick and easy way to make those little adjustments. So what I’m gonna do, all my layers are actually in a group, so I’m just gonna select that. You can also select your individual layers as well but for this example, I’ll just show you this.

You go to your magic wand, you go to liquefy, and honestly, the majority of the time, all I do use is push. You do have other options too. These are some of my kid’s favorite ones, of course, making things swirl and be all weird,  so we won’t do that. But usually, I just use the push tool and then, say, something is a little bit off, I can just adjust the size of my brush depending on the size of your picture. And let’s say this forehead was a little bit too far out, I can bring it in.

Maybe her nose needed, her bridge needed to be up a little bit more, her chin needed to be out, this needs to come in. All those little minor adjustments, you can take care of here. So it’s great for big things, it’s great for little tweaks. I especially love it just for those little final things. If you see something’s just a little off, you can fix it without having to start all over again.

 

Tip Number Nine – The Quick Menu

This is a genius little nifty shortcut that is customizable and super, super handy. So to turn this feature on, go to the wrench, go to preferences right here, go to gesture controls, quick menu, and you can select on how you’d like to use it. I use it through touch, and done. So what happens is, just when I touch once with one finger, I get this quick menu. Now there’s a bunch of things on here automatically. Some are super helpful, like flip horizontally. Of course, that’s really good when you’re drawing characters and faces, you do use that quite a bit. I can say flip again.

You can also customize it. So I can go to one of these and just hold on it, and then you can set an action with all these options. So there’s quite a few of them, so you can go… One of my favourite ones is go to select brush, and you can go and find your favourite brush and then put that in there. So just a quick, quick way, I’m just gonna grab anything here, just say it’s that one, so then you can already have that brush ready to go, just with a little tap of the finger.

 

Tip number 10 – Reference Canvas Tool

Sometimes it’s really nice to have an overview of your canvas, and other times you’re working from a reference photo, so this reference canvas tool is super useful. So go to your wrench, go to canvas, and reference, you just toggle that on and it gives you this nice little window that you can put anywhere you want and just move it around, and I’m just gonna put up here. And you can see that it shows your canvas, it does show real-time, so you can see if you make any changes, it does make it to that.

So this is great if you’re zoomed in doing detail but you kinda wanna see a whole big picture. You can also go on here and you can select colours too. So say you’re just wanting to do local colours from a different spot and use those again, and you’re again, you’re zoomed in, that’s a great way to do it. You can also go here and go to image and import an image, so that would be for your reference photo. So that’s another really useful tool.

 

Bonus Tip

And lastly, a bonus tip, make a favourite brush folder. So go into your brushes, and if you go to the top and you just hit that plus sign, you can just name it, faves, favourites, whatever you want. And then you can go into your brushes and just say this is your favourite brush, you can go swipe to the left and say duplicate ’cause I always like to leave the originals where they are, so I just take a duplicate and then I’m gonna go… I already have a faves folder there.

I have so many folders. And I’m gonna go to my faves folder and add it there, so then whenever I need to, I just go in and I have a whole collection of my favourite brushes. And now you don’t have to be searching for all your favourite brushes. It’s a total time saver and it’s really efficient.

How To Draw Pansies In Procreate

By flower clipart, procreate

How to Draw Pansies – A Floral Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

Hi guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to this week’s tutorial. Let’s draw together.

In this week’s tutorial, we’re drawing a cute bunch of pansies in Procreate and I’m sure you can create this too, if you follow along all the way to the end. If you feel rushed, just be sure to hit that pause button and rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can re-watch if you need some extra practice.

Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate. And don’t forget that once you finish this entire video to share it on Instagram, tag me in the images as well as the description, so I can find it and feature your artwork here on the next Draw Together video. So for this video, I’ve made you a free colour palette just in case you’d like to use the same colours as me during this tutorial, and you can just tap on the link in the video description below where you can download and install it.

And also below, you’ll find a link to a goody bag where there’s some free illustrative goodies in there for you, I love to give to you. And also there is a link to my shop, so you can go check out what’s going on over there.

Let’s Jump In

So let’s create our canvas at 4000 x 4000 pixels, 300 DPI and sRGB. I’m just gonna grab my… Just a black here, and we’re gonna start with a sketch, so I’m gonna go to sketching and 6B pencil. I’m gonna have my pencil at about… Oh, I don’t know, 45%, just so you can see it, and I’m just gonna start by getting some shapes going and just getting an idea of where I want these flowers to be.

So I’m just gonna start with a circle and bring my centre point here. And the way pansies go, they have a few layers of petals. So I’m gonna bring one out here, it’s gonna be like that. Another one’s gonna be maybe like this, gonna have two behind here.

Oops, maybe not quite like that. Two behind here, they’ll overlap, kinda come out here. Maybe a bit more up there, like so, and then there’s gonna be this petal here, the one that kind of… I don’t know, goes around like this. So that should be a good… This is gonna be five petals total, so that’s fine for that one, I’m just gonna shrink that down just a touch.

Get That Circle

Bring them over there, maybe in the centre. The next one I’m gonna have over here, maybe they will be touching, just gonna get that circle, gonna have that… It’s gonna be… Have this one out in front, this lower guy, something like that. Sort of these three are always kind of in that design, and then two in the back can vary.

This one, maybe it will come over more, and this one will be… Maybe that’s a little bit too much, hold on. Over like that, and this guy, the fifth one will pop in at the back there. And then we’ll have one over here, that’ll be the centre of this guy, this front one, coming in here. Okay, and then he’s gonna be over here, back one… Okay, so that’s sort of where we want those guys to be.

Great, so then we’re gonna get the stems, and they will start from where the base is, so you can get an idea. It’s a little bit on the thicker side, and this guy is gonna kind of… Maybe he’ll curve a little bit more like that, will be about there. This guy will be coming in like that. Okay, and then some leaves. Sort of like so. I’m bringing him in like that. I’m trying to decide. Actually, maybe we’re gonna have a little bud that’s coming up here to fill in this little area here.

The bud will be just a bunch of wiggly, here, little wiggly leaves like that, and it’ll have the greenery on top. We’ll see later. So that’s just a little bud that’s coming up. And we’ll have some more leaves, will just be overlapping and falling behind. This guy, let’s have him come over here, like so.

Maybe there’ll be one back here and kind of, yeah, I want them all to be overlapping and stuff, like that. This guy in the back doesn’t actually have any, so what are we gonna do there? I’m running out of room.  Maybe in there.

Knock Down The Opacity

Okay, let’s see how that goes when I do my better copy for my line work. So I’m just gonna take this and knock down the opacity to about 25%, create a new layer by hitting that plus sign, and then actually I’m gonna stick with my 6B pencil today for my line work.

I think that will work nicely for what we’re trying to do here, so just stay on that and I’m gonna stay at 45%. I think that was working just fine. So then I’m gonna go and just make some nicer line work. I’m gonna do these little details, so these little… Oops, I’m on the wrong way.

These little details, I am just gonna do a little scoop, a little scoop like that, and then they’re gonna have a circle like that. So that’s how the little centres of these guys go. And then I’m just gonna play with the pressure of my pen a little bit just to create these wiggly lines, and that will make a nice petally look.

So you can play with this. Again, I love nature because of it’s, you get not perfectly straight lines,  it can be wiggly and be a little bit interpretive which is always nice.

Okay, good, and then we’re gonna do this guy, so these two little bean shapes, a little smile. This guy is gonna come underneath this one. Like that. Okay, this guy lastly for this part like so… Just make them all lazy and do a little overlap here by drawing that line, it looks like it’s folding over.

You can make those little fun details if you want… Okay, let’s get this guy here, this is gonna be the leaf part over top of our bud, and then these will be… Oops these will be the petals here. Okay. And the stem. Okay. Great. And you just continue on and line your work, adding all the little touches that you want.

So actually with the leaves, I’m gonna do… I’m gonna do this, so on the middle, I’m gonna go, just do these little lines here for the veining, so I’m pushing a little bit more at the beginning and easing up as I lift my pen at the end.

Let’s See What We’ve Got

Okay. So I think that’s good. We can turn off our sketch layer here. So let’s see what we’ve got. Okay. That looks good for now. And then I’m gonna add a couple more line details to this.

So when we come in here, you can see this would be nice just to add a little line and then maybe… I hope you can see this. So if when it goes like this, you might see it behind. So that creates a more realistic effect of how they’d actually be in real life, not so flat. So I like adding those little details, too, when they come up and they’re just not really planned, they just happen as I do those little squiggly lines and stuff.

So just bring in these little bits where you can find them. So from the centre and also from the top. A few little ones more in the centre, sometimes, just to bring that in there. It looks good. Okay. I’ll just keep going. So there again, this little scoop, if you put that line there, it’ll look better, like it’s folding. There’s another one where you can make it look like that fold.

Okay so I think that’s pretty good for that part, I’ll start coloring it in. So I’m gonna just do some solid fills and go over with some painting techniques. So I’m just gonna go below my sketch layer and add new layer by hitting the plus sign. And let’s go find some new colours. And let’s start with the light pink colour and go into inking, and I’m gonna grab that studio pen.

I’m just gonna use that for my solid fill. I’m gonna turn off my background layer so you can see ’cause it’s quite a light colour. So let’s just go in and I’m going to just fill this in, just colour within the lines.

And then I’m just gonna drag my colour into there and fill that. Next, I’m gonna create a new layer. I’m gonna use this darker pink colour and fill in this one.

I think I’m gonna be dragging my colour in and fill, and then we’re gonna do another layer and grab this light yellow colour and fill in this one. Okay, and then I’m gonna just do this little guy too, I’ll make him yellow. Alright. And then lastly, we’ll just do our green, so create a new layer and get that light green colour and we’ll fill in all our greenery.

Solid Fills Done

Okay, so now we have all our solid fills done and we’re ready to do a little bit of painting and shadows and stuff like that. So I’m going to just create a new layer. Actually, I’m gonna… Yeah, I’m gonna do a new layer and I’m gonna use this dark orange colour and with this solid we still have our studio pen, I’m just gonna do these little bits here, all the way around.

And then I’m gonna grab that medium yellowy orangey colour and do the top two thingies. Okay, so then we have that done.

Great. Okay, and then I’m gonna do a clipping mask on a bunch of these guys. So first, I’m gonna go back to our pink and a new layer, hit the plus sign, hit that layer and say clipping mask, so that will mean that we can only draw within this shape, which will be nice, then we don’t have to do a bunch of clean up.

I’m gonna grab that medium pink colour, and then go to my painting. Where are you painting?  And grab my gouache, I’m just gonna use that for now. Let’s see, I’m going to be at about, let’s say 5% and just bring in some shadows here, so quite close to the beginning. I’m gonna make that a shadow and just have it so all the tips of the flowers are gonna be lighter.

And you can just have some lines up there if you want, just sort of get in these grooves. And you can build that up by just doing layers too, and just get under here, in all these little folds.

More Layers

Get in and come behind here. I’m creating that shadow there. Okay. So hopefully you can see that. That’s working. Okay. So then I’m gonna do the same thing to this darker layer here, so I’m gonna add new layer, hit clipping mask and grab… Oh, I didn’t do a darker colour, so I’m gonna make this for you, grab this darker colour, kind of a reddy-pink and do the same thing.

And if you make a mistake like I just did, you just get your eraser, take that out,  ’cause I like to have this, just to make sure that you’re creating that depth, having the dark behind and then the light tips of the flowers, I think that looks good.

Okay, and then same with the yellow one, create new layer, clipping mask, and then get that medium yellow, and we’ll do the same thing. And then we’re gonna come in here with this bud too. Okay, perfect. And then same thing with our green, so create new layer, clipping mask, grab that darker green and just start bringing in some shadows here.

Don’t Forget!

Oops, I forgot to fill one of those in. Okay, so I’m just gonna go and fix that, grab my green and drag and drop in there, there we go, fixed.

Grab the dark green again and just finish up with my shadows here. Okay, so we have a little bit of depth going on. I’m gonna turn my background layer back on, I prefer it that way. Okay, so now let’s just go and do the details for the… That make pansies actually look like pansies. So I’m just gonna continue on with my clipping or the layers that I did for my clipping mask.

You can make new ones if you want to by all means, that would be less destructive, but today, I’m just gonna do it over top, so we don’t have a ton of layers. So I’m gonna start with this medium yellowy colour, so I’m on my pink one, so on that clipping mask above it.

I’m gonna just go and make that… I don’t know, little face that they have just with the yellow, and I’m gonna be layering it. I’m gonna start with this. So here it kinda goes, it’s almost like a butterfly shape. I’m just gonna fill that in. Okay, and then I’m gonna go and grab this quite dark, eggplant purpley colour, and then go over top.

So I want to have an outline of the yellow, and this is gonna be quite dark. It’s kinda gonna have the edges a little painty but quite heavy in the centre.

So the same thing to the dark pink one, so I’m gonna just go to that clipping mask layer, grab that medium yellow, same thing. Grab that eggplant colour. Okay, and lastly on our yellow one. So the yellow part won’t show quite up as much, but we’ll still put it in here. Again, grab that eggplant. I don’t know why I’m calling it eggplant, it’s purple.  Whatever. Sounds fancy.

So It’s Looking all Right

Okay, at least they look like pansies, right? But I’m gonna make a few changes ’cause for this picture I don’t actually want my lines to be black. So what we can do, ’cause I didn’t feel like doing each line a different colour, we can just do this after the fact.

So this is a little thing that I do sometimes. Again, I’m gonna create a clipping mask on top of my lined layer and then yeah, hit clipping mask, and I’m gonna go in and just grab the colours that I want to make the outlines. So I’m gonna go back to my inking and grab that studio pen.

You can do this a number of ways, you can do this with studio pen or you could just to color it with a marker or anything like that, but I’m just gonna use studio pen today. I’m gonna grab this darker pink here, and I’m gonna make the lines this colour, so because it’s a clipping mask, I can just go over like that, and it’s gonna just make my lines pink, so I can just really do a swoop, do a circle, careful around here, and just make a circle around and then fill that circle in and then just that part is that pink colour.

So I like that better, that look better for this particular thing. So I’m gonna go and change everything here. So I’m gonna grab this darker one and then do the lines for this flower.

So I’m just going all the way around holding down my pen, making sure the line up again, and there we go, just a little bit more subtle. Grabbing this dark orange, going here.

Hopefully I got that in there. Yeah, got that. And then, don’t forget about this while we’re here. Little guy, and then I’m gonna go and grab this dark green and do the same to my greenery, and you can just do it in the sections, I’m just trying to make sure that I get it all covered here. And you can just go and color over top too.

You don’t have to do the drag and drop, it’s just a little bit quicker sometimes, but when you’re doing picky things like all these little details and it’s a little bit harder to get in, you might wanna do it all by hand. Okay. Let’s see if this works. Oops.

Looking A Lot Better!

Perfect. Okay, so that’s a better look, I think for this particular thing. And we can add another little touch here by going into the wrench. And I’m gonna give you a free watercolour paper texture that is in the downloads as well, so go and grab that if you want, just to add another little layer to it.

So I’m gonna go to my wrench and to add insert file. I’m gonna go into my Dropbox and go and find that. Wherever you downloaded yours will probably be on your iPad if you downloaded this watercolour texture. I’m gonna find that, import that, and I’m just gonna use the little toggles to expand it all the way out and make sure that it is at the top of our layer.

And then I’m gonna click the end and go to multiply, so that will give us a watercolour texture, which is a little bit nicer than just having it plain for this particular project.

So I think that’s it, guys. So I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial, and if you did, hit that like button, subscribe, and don’t forget to hit the bell icon so you can be notified of new tutorials, just like this one in the future. I post every single week, so I’d love to see you back here.

Thank you so much for watching.

I love you guys, and I’ll see in the next one.

How to Draw Spring Flowers – Tulip Illustration – Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

 

Hi Guys, I’m Kris. Welcome to This Week’s Tutorial. Let’s Draw Together!

 

In this week’s tutorial, we’re drawing a vase with some spring tulips in it, all in Procreate, and I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along all the way to the end of the video. If you feel rushed, be sure to hit that pause button or just rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can re-watch if you need a little extra practice. Today we’ll be using all free brushes found in Procreate and don’t forget once you finish this entire video to share it on Instagram, tag me in the image, as well as the description, so I can find your artwork and feature you here in the next draw together video.

Check Out My Shop Of Cute Illustrations

For This Video, I’ve Made You a Free Colour Pallet

Just in case you’d like to use the exact same colors I’ll be using during this tutorial. And you can just tap on the link in the video description below where you can download it and install it to Procreate. And also below, you’ll find a link to a goody bag where you can grab some free goodies and visit my shop and support me there. So let’s jump in and just start out with our canvas, and I’m gonna set it up at the usual 4000 by 4000 pixels, 300 DPI, and sRGB. And I’m actually gonna start by going into my layers palette and going to the background colour and changing it just to a light blue grey. You can pick whatever colour you want, up to you. Just for a little variety, let’s change it up a little bit.

Remain On Layer One

So, I’m gonna remain on layer one and I’m gonna pick, I think I’m gonna start with the lightest yellow colour, and I’m gonna go and pick the studio pen. You can use a mono pen or just something that’s straight and solid that should work just fine. I’m going to have my opacity at 100% and my size is going to be around 20%, and I’m gonna go and make this so that we make our vase symmetrical. So how we’re gonna do this is go into our little wrench here, go to hit canvas, and then go to the drawing guide and turn that on, toggle that on, then go to edit drawing guide, click on that and you’ll see a few options here. So, we’re gonna go to the symmetry, little tab there, and the thickness is gonna be the thickness of this line in the center, just so we can see. Hopefully, you can see that there. And then we’re gonna click on the options and we want it to say vertical and assisted drawing will be toggled on.

Good To Go!

So once you have that set up, we’ll be good to go, we just click done and here we go. So you can see this layer says assisted on it, so this is the layer that it’s gonna allow us to draw symmetrical things. So I’m gonna start just with… I’m gonna zoom out a little bit, I’m gonna just start with a straight line first and I’m just gonna drag and hold, and then I’m just gonna tap to make that totally straight, and then I’m just gonna do whatever vase shape you want, up to you. And there we go. So now we have it symmetrical, hopefully you can see that, that’s my vase shape I’ll be working with. And then I’m just gonna go and drag and fill that, now we can really see it. So that’s just your vase, and now we have it symmetrical and we’re good to go, so we can just go and turn that assist to drawing off now if we want. And then I’m just gonna go back into my canvas, and I’m just gonna turn that drawing guide off, ’cause it’s kind of annoying to look at.

Click On A New Layer

So there we go, that’s all we needed for that part. And then I’m going to click on a new layer by hitting the plus sign, drag that layer to below this layer one. I’m gonna just go and pick, just grab a gray colour, any gray will do, and I’m just gonna make an oval below here. And I’m just gonna hold and wait till it goes kinda perfect, I wanna have a little bit lopsided and I’m gonna put my finger down just to make it straight. So that will be our little shadow layer, and I’m gonna drag in here to fill. It looks a little bit hard right now, so what I’m gonna do is go up here to your magic wand and go to Gaussian blur, hit layer and now all you need to do is just take your pen and drag it across. Can you see how it’s… I’ll zoom in. How it blurs a lot, so the more I drag, the more it blurs. So you can choose how much you’d like this blurred, I’m just gonna have it about, let’s see. A little bit more than that. Just about there, I think.

Let’s Blend!

And then I’m gonna go and click on this layer and I’m going to change, click on the end to change the blending mode, and I’m gonna put it to multiply. So no matter what colour behind it’s gonna react to that, whatever background colour we have, and then I’m just gonna bump down the opacity as something that looks somewhat reasonable. Maybe around 30%. I think that’s good. Okay, so now let’s work on our vase a little bit, I’m gonna click on that and then add a new layer, tap on it and hit clipping masks. So I’m just gonna do a little bit of shading just to give it a little bit of dimension. I’m gonna go and pick up that orangey colour, click on your brush, and we’re gonna go to, let’s go to air brush and just have that soft brush and it’s going to be at 100% and let’s start, let’s say 8%, that should be fine. So I’m just going to just give the edges just a really light little dusting here, maybe more so in the bottom a bit. A little bit on the side here. And then I’m gonna bring the brush up a little bit more maybe to about 25%. Just a little bit of a dust there.

Rounding It Out

So now we have a little bit more of a rounded shape. It’s a little bit much there, okay. And then I’m gonna go and grab that lighter yellow and I’m gonna add this to this as well, so I’m just making it lighter, even lighter yellow and still with the air brushing, I’m gonna bring it down back to about 8% again. Maybe let’s just give it a little bit of light on this side. Good, nice. So there we have our shaded vase, so we can decorate it and make it a little bit prettier, but at first I think we’ll put our flowers in and then we can kinda leave that to the end. So, I’m gonna select all three layers and hit my arrow and just move, move this down a little bit just so I have some more room, maybe I’m gonna shrink it just a hair, just so I have enough room for these flowers to come in, perfect. And then I’m going to select the shadow layer, hit the plus sign to create a new layer and bring that below, so all our layers will be below the vase so they go behind in it.

Draw Some Stems

So next, I’m gonna draw the stems of the tulips, so I’m just gonna grab this darker green here, then I’m just gonna stay on that studio pen for now. And let’s see what size… That’s still good. Okay, so we can stay on about 18% to draw these little stems and leaves and whatnot. So I’m gonna have one coming out about here, and then we’ll have one here. Maybe a little shorter guy over there. Let’s have some leaves here, like so. Have one coming out the front here. Okay, let’s see how that is. I’m gonna fill these leaves. Oops, I didn’t close that in. There we go. Perfect. Maybe we’ll have… Actually, so those ones are in front, so I’m gonna make another layer, drag it below, and these leaves will be behind, so that will help us later when we’re doing some shading and whatnot. So that one’s gonna be behind. And maybe we’ll have just another little guy in there go behind. Perfect.

A Couple Of Tweaks

Okay, so I think I’m just gonna go back to this layer and just tweak these a little bit, I want my stems to have a little bit more thickness, so I’m just gonna push down a little bit more. They need to be a little bit sturdier. Okay. That’s probably good. Great, and then we can go on top of this layer, I’m gonna click a new layer and make it a clipping mask. So, I’m gonna grab the light green, I’m gonna go and grab, let’s try the charcoals and maybe the… Let’s see, the willow charcoal, let’s try that. It’s gonna be at 100% opacity and 18%. Oh, that’s nice. Just to kind of lightly, just giving it a little bit of texture, just a little bit of something. Just play around with the sizes, it’s not crucial at this point, I’m at 8% right now. Give it a little something. Bring out that leaf there. Good, and then we can go into the same thing to layer five, these leaves that are behind, so I’m gonna click on that, add the plus sign, make it a clipping mask. And I’m actually going to use a darker green now. I will also add this to the palette for you, maybe let’s give it a little more depth in there.

Do The Tulip

Okay. We can use that darker green here too, just maybe give a little edges to that. Oh, I think that looks good. Okay, so now let’s do our little tulips, so I’m going to go and create a new layer on top of that, still below the shadow just to keep everything kind of organised and go back and grab our… Not our painting, our studio pen. So we’re still on… What were we on? 18%, and that’s fine. So let’s start with these tulips here. So I am gonna start with grabbing my colour would be good, so I’m gonna grab that hot pink and create the first little puddle here, it’s gonna kinda go like this, and then there’ll be one kind of like this. And I’m going to fill those in. And I know that’s not quite right, but those are the petals that are closest to us, and then we’re gonna do another layer kinda like how we did it for the leaves to make the ones behind, and that will just help speed up with some of our shadowing and whatnot. Okay, so this one is gonna go… Let’s have it more, a little bit more open here, like that.

Making Some Fixes

That’s not quite right.  Like that. Gonna come in. Okay. And now I already see that I will need to change this layer. I’m actually going to bring this behind the leaves. And you’ll see why in a sec, I forgot about this little guy here. So we want him to be behind for this part. And I’m gonna fix this little area here. Okay. Then I’m just gonna go to this layer that has the stems, grab my eraser and just fix that a bit. So that’s going in there a bit more. Perfect. Okay, so then I’m gonna go back to this layer, create a new one and bring it below and we can create a darker colour here, just to begin with, so we can see what we’re doing. And then we’re just gonna put the petals in here, like so. Now we can add a few more, I think. Okay, that’s good. And I’m just gonna do one more layer, you can have this even darker, just making it up as we go, and just a few more in the back here.

It’s Okay, It’s Alright

Okay, alright. So now we can add some more detail to the petal part. So I’m going to go to this layer, this sort of middle layer, and start there. And I’m just gonna add a new layer clipping mask, stay on this darker colour, I think that will do as well. And go and let’s stick with the charcoals, the willow is good, we’ll stay on the same size at about eight and just let’s make it a little darker in here, give it a little depth and sort of give it a little something in here, so I can just go around and do that. Okay. That looks good. Okay, and then same, I’m gonna go to the layer on top, add a new layer clipping mask, and get this lighter pink here, and let’s just give some life there. Alright. Okay, so then I’m going to just create a new layer and we’re gonna use just the white, and I’m gonna go back to inking and grab my favorite draw ink brush and let’s just do some extra little details, so I’m just gonna give a few little highlights here. I’m gonna have to fix these stems.

Flowers Need A Vase

Okay. I think that’s good for that. So why don’t we work on our vase a little bit and add something a little bit more interesting to it. Let’s go and go to the top and hit the plus sign. And grab this sort of beigey colour here, taupey-beigey. Let’s do some raffia. So we’re on our dry ink brush still, so that should be good, and let’s just kind of like, bring some lines around here, maybe I’m gonna make this a little bit bigger, actually, maybe about 16, and just sort of, you know, they’re all kind of a little bit messy, isn’t it? Have that stuff and kind of have a knot here, just messy sort of lines. And then, let’s see, it kinda has that…

Use Your Imagination

Okay. So that’s probably good. Just use your imagination with that, grab a little darker brown, and we’re just gonna give it a little bit of depth, so it makes sense, ’cause right now it kinda looks really like a big mush right now here. So just define some of those lines. So why don’t we make a little tag underneath our raffia tie here, so I’m gonna go into my layers and create a new layer and just pop it below that, and it does automatically go as a clipping mask. So just double check that, ’cause you won’t be able to draw outside of our vase here. So I wanna go and grab our studio pen again, leave it on the same settings, it’s fine at 18. And let’s just draw a tag. So you can have whatever shape you want. I’m just gonna make something, I don’t know, reminiscent of a luggage tag shape, I guess, something like that.

Write A Little Message

Okay, so now we can use that to write a little message on, but first, I’m going to make a little shadow. So I’m gonna actually duplicate this and my duplicate below, I’m just going to… I’m gonna give it this warm orange colour and you’re not gonna see anything happen, but you’ll see it below. But where we’re gonna move it just like so. Maybe down like that, and then we’re gonna go back to our magic wand. Go to Gaussian blur and layer, and again, just give this a blur like so. Mine’s at 15%, if that’s helpful. Now this, I am gonna make this a clipping mask, ’cause you see, I’ll show you, that it’s popping out here. So that’s not logical, so we’ll just clip that to the vase, so that’ll work. And now we have a nice little drop shadow below that. Okay, and we can move it over a little bit, it might be making more sense if it didn’t have too much on that side. That’s probably good.

 

Okay, so we can go back to our tag layer and make another one above it, and you can write a nice little message and I’m sure yours will be even prettier, because as we all know, I am not known for my hand lettering skills, so.  You can write whatever message you want. Happy Easter, Happy Spring. I’m just gonna say, “Thank you.” I’m gonna just do it with my dry ink at about 10, and I’m just, hopefully and neatly gonna say “Thank you.” You know, it’s just not my best skill.  Alright, something like that. I’m sure yours will look much better.  But we can decorate the tag, of course, then maybe we should do that, maybe we can just move this up a little bit. I can still read it and maybe you put a little… Grab the orange. Maybe that looks better, a little flourish or something. So you can decorate this however you want, of course, you can go in and maybe I’ll do this with this tag, you can go and take your eraser, and I’m just on air brush and a hard brush. So I’m going to bring it down to 2%. Let’s just see if we just cut little holes out of it.

And You’re Done

There we go. Makes it a little bit more interesting. Maybe I’ll move this up again, we’ll shrink it down, move it up. There, so we have a little cut-out tag, that’s kinda fun. So I think that’s it for today.

How to Draw a Wild Rose Illustration – Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

 

Welcome to this week’s tutorial!

Hi guys, I’m Kris! Welcome to this week’s tutorial. Let’s draw together. In this week’s tutorial, we’re drawing a wild rose in Procreate and I’m sure you can create this too if you follow along with the video all the way to the end. And if you feel rushed, just be sure to hit that pause button or just rewind to catch up and save this video to your library so you can have some extra practice. So today we’ll be using all three brushes found in Procreate, and don’t forget, once you’ve finished this entire video, share it on Instagram and tag me in the image as well as the description, so that I can find your artwork and feature you here in the next draw together video. So for this video, I’ve made you a free colour palette, just in case you wanna use these same colours. You don’t have to, you can use whatever you want, but that is in the description below; you can just tap on that and download it and install it into Procreate, and of course, below you’ll also find some links to free goodie bags and free good stuff that I’d love to give to you, and there’s also a link to the shop where you can find all of the Clip Art goodies and lots of other stuff.

 

So let’s dive in!

And create our canvas of 4000 x 4000 pixels, 300 DPI, and I’m gonna start with my 6B pencil, and I’m just gonna use this dark brown here. We’re just gonna do a sketch first, just kinda get the placement of all the petals and all that kind of good stuff first, so I’m just gonna start with a loose sort of circle, not a perfect circle, it’s just gonna be slightly on the side and just sort of get where my centre point is going to be, it doesn’t have to be that specific.  And then just start mapping out where I want my petals, so it’s gonna be something like this coming out from here, and another one coming out here. This one is gonna come out here, actually, I think the centre line is actually gonna be a little bit lower. So the centre of those flowers will be a bit lower, so it would be like this. This petal here… I mean, they’re flowers so it doesn’t have to be exact. You can interpret it however you want. There’s some rules, but not really.  You can be pretty loose with that.

 

Okay, so like this. And I don’t know something like that. Just gonna erase that. And then this guy is gonna come down here. I don’t know. I’m gonna have to wiggle here. And let’s see. Then you wanna have one that has a little bit of interest to it, so maybe we’ll see the underside of the kind of side of that one. And it’ll come around here. So, I’ve made some of them so they are overlapping, and some of them that you can kind of see in-between, just to give a little bit of interest to your picture. Just to give a little bit of interest to your flower and yeah, I think that should be good. So we have one, two, three, four, five petals, it’s kind of a standard thing. I think I want this a little bit shorter in here. And then, let’s just do some leaves and sort of the base. So I’m gonna bring my stem and it can just go, I don’t know, kind of like this. Maybe we’ll have another little bit of it over here. Something like that. There’s some leaves. So when it’s overlapping, that makes it look a little bit more interesting. Something like that. And that should be good. Okay, so let’s have a look at the centre here. I wanna make sure that it’s down low enough, I still think I’ve drawn it a little touch high here, just for the angle of this. ‘Cause there’s gonna be a little… What is it? A stamen that comes out here, so just give it a rough look like that. Maybe it looked just a little bit thick. Just a little bit thinner, there we go.

 

Like so, and then we’re gonna have all our little bits like this. Okay, so we know that. Just right now, I’m just trying to get the direction; it doesn’t have to, obviously, not too detailed, but just kinda try to get how these leaves are gonna lay. So I’m gonna know that this goes, I kinda want it to be scooping in a little bit more here, to shout a bit. Okay. And I don’t really like the way this line looks. Okay, so I think that’s probably pretty good for a start. We can always just take our liquify tool, if you go to your magic wand and go to liquify, go to push and you can just move things around if you want to, if you’re not really happy with the shape. If a petal has gone out too far or something like that, this is a good time to go and just make those little adjustments and stuff, so don’t be afraid to use that, it’s one of my favourite little tools, especially when I’m sketching. Okay, well, I could be fiddling with this for a while, but let’s get to our good copy. So I’m gonna go to our layers and click on the N and just bring down that opacity to about 20-25%, whatever works for you, and then click that plus sign so that we get a new layer and I’m gonna do my good copy on top of that.

 

So I’m gonna stick with my 6B pencil, I’m gonna be at about 75% and 100% opacity. And let’s just get in there and do some nicer line work. I’m gonna do a few of these little circly guys, just off the top here, before I set the lines in here, and I’m just gonna make that like that and maybe if we feel kind of bumpy like that… Okay. And then just with the pressure of your pen, just give it a little bit more pressure in areas, a little bit less, just to have some variety.

 

 

 

Just have those edges a little bit… Just you don’t want them exact.

 

Okay. I like drawing flowers, you can be so, just kind of more loose and, yeah, just a little bit more left to interpretation.  It’s kinda nice. Okay. So, let’s just keep going. I’m gonna do these little leaves here. Maybe we’ll have one coming out here, too.

 

Just having a little shaky hand is not a bad thing.  Keep doing the lines, just to give it that textured effect.

 

Maybe we’d have one over here, too. Something like that. Okay. I don’t think we need our sketch layer anymore. It’s kind of distracting me now, so I’m just gonna go into my layers and turn it off and let’s see. Okay, so that’s better. I think that’s a really decent start just to our line work. So now I’m gonna make some… Actually, I’m gonna do all the little circly things. So maybe we’ll just fast forward a little bit ’cause you can kinda get the idea pretty quickly, so let’s go. So all they’re going to be is just some circles and then you’re just gonna attach lines to them.

 

Okay, so that’s probably good for those little bits, and while we’re here, I’m just gonna try to make it sort of darker in the centre, just kind of making a little bit more attention to here. So I’m just gonna darken some of my lines. I’m gonna use the side of my pencil, just to give a little bit of shading too. It’ll give that nice little shadow effect. And just sort of put some darker lines, just coming out from the centre, just really making this more of a focal point.

 

Okay. So that should be fine, and then, I’m gonna go around the edges and just make a few little lines down. So when you have little things like this little jogs, you can kind of emphasize those just by pushing a little bit harder at the beginning and then swooping down, and that just creates that kind of fold look. So have a few of those from the top. That makes that… I don’t know. Well, petaly sort of wiggly look, I think it helps.

 

Okay, and then, from the base, I’m gonna leave a blank spot in between this and this. So I’m just gonna start halfway down, kind of, and bring that in there, just randomly, but make sure that they go with the flow of the petal. And you can do this and then you can do the little dots if you want to. You can do it like that. It has a nice of effect, too. This just really helps to show the direction of those petals, how they’re bending. Okay. So that’s pretty good. Let’s just go and do a few more details onto our leaves here. I’m just gonna… Because I… I don’t know why,  I’m gonna turn my canvas upside down, just ’cause it’s easier for me to do these lines this way. So I’m just gonna start from the base and do these little veins out.

 

Okay, and I’m just gonna take the side of my pencil and just give a little shadow here and there, just where it would naturally be shadowed. I just like having a little bit more graininess for this particular one.  If you’re doing straight water colour, then you wouldn’t do this. It wouldn’t really matter, but you can make it how you want it to look. Okay. Alright, so that’s pretty good. We could leave it at that if you just wanted to do an illustration, but let’s just put a little bit of a paint in there. I am gonna use some clipping masks ’cause if I was using this for Clip Art, this is how I would do it. I’m just gonna go and select my sketch layer at the plus sign. Go to… Let’s just pick the green at the moment. Go to our brushes and inking, gonna grab the studio pen. I just like to fill this in solid then it adds a solid background to it. So I’m just gonna do that right now, and then I’m gonna make it look more painterly later. So basically all I’m doing is just filling it in, just colouring in the lines, basically. And you can just either choose to colour it in like this, which isn’t the greatest with the studio pen, or you can just drag it in to fill it just like this. Here I’ll show you. So if you have a completed shape, then you can grab your colour and fill it in. So you can do that as well.

 

Okay. That’s all the green. I’m actually going to turn it white now. And I know sometimes people get confused why I do this, but I’ll show you in a second. I’m just gonna make this all white. I’m gonna turn off my background layer ’cause then you can see. So basically, all I’ve done is just fill it in with a colour. I use the colour just because I can see it,  when I have a white background on or I could just turn the background off and use white, which I’ll do right now for the flowers so you can see that difference. But yeah, it’s just so I now have a solid fill. So if I’m going to be using this as like I said, Clip Art, it’ll have a transparent background. But I don’t want any colours to fill in, so just… They always need to be solid, so. I hope that makes sense. Around it would be transparent, the actual image would be solid.  So I’m just gonna make sure everything’s filled in and then I can use clipping masks to do my painting on. That way I don’t have to do any erasing around the edges. If you’re just working on a canvas and you’re just making a painting, and it’s just gonna always be on a solid background, then you don’t need to worry about this, but because I make Clip Art, this step is how I find it easiest to do.

 

Hopefully that’s all filled in. Okay, great, so now we have our two parts filled in. So I can… I did it in two parts, just so it’s easier for me because then I can just colour the green parts without worrying about getting the flower all messy. So I’m gonna go back to my stems and just select that, hit the plus sign, and then do click on the layer, and click on clipping mask, grab the green, the darker green colour to start, and you can use whatever water colour brushes you have or we can… For today we’re just gonna use all the free stuff in Procreate. I’m actually just gonna use the gouache. That’ll work fine for us for this part too. So I’m just gonna bump up my gouache to about, I don’t know, 25% and just start painting.

 

So I kinda want it to look a little bit painted. So I’m gonna pick it up and make it so it’s a little bit more blottier here and there. That’s gonna be darker in here, of course. We can make some shadows. We can bring it down smaller, that small. About 10%, and just kind of bring it in there. Just colour it however you want it to appear. And I’m gonna go grab that lighter green. Maybe just bring in some interest here. You can set that here and there. Okay, great. So that was pretty simple. And then I’m gonna go and let’s colour in our flower here.  I can’t think. Let’s go in and colour in our flower, and I’m just gonna select that layer and hit the plus sign. Click on that. Hit clipping mask, and then I’m gonna grab this sort of peachy colour. I’m just gonna stay with the gouache and I’m gonna stay at about 8%. Let me just put in a few lines here.

 

Alright. I’m just gonna erase it just from the stamen here. And then I’m gonna go grab the pink and just maybe bump this up a little bit more to, what is that, 30%? And just sort of create a little circle, kind of, or just loose… I’m being really light at the edges. So I’m kind of building it up darker in the centre, lighter on the outside. I don’t want it to be too exact on each petal. I wonder if we need a little bit of brighter pink? Let’s try this. I’ll have to add this colour. Yeah, that’s looking a little dull. Okay, and then let’s just erase a little bit here. Okay. So now we can go and grab our yellow and I’m gonna… Yeah, the gouache is fine, just bring it down, way down to 5% or something like that, and then just colour this guy in nice and solid. Okay. And then I’m going to use this new pink we have and go and grab the… Go back to sketching and grab the 6B again. I’m just gonna fill in these, all these little dots. Oops, that’s not part of our thing there.

 

I think this may need to be darker. Let’s put that there. Okay and then I’m going to go… Just ’cause this doesn’t… There we go. And then I’m gonna just do a little extra touch. At the very top, I’m just gonna click select my top layer and then just add another one to the top, just make it white and just… I’m just gonna add a few little dots just for highlight, just to really make these come out a little bit. Just a dot. And then maybe just a little… A few here too. Good. Alright, perfect. Now, to have another touch, because this is still very flat, which is… Totally works for some applications, depending on what you’re wanting to do. But I’m gonna go into my wrench and into insert file. I’ve put in the description below, there’s a free water colour texture that you can download. And so mine is just in my downloads folder. So I just navigate to there and click on that and it will import it.

 

And I’m just going to make it the size of my canvas. Oops. And then do that. And then I wanna hit the N and make it or set it to multiply. So then we have a little bit more texture, which is nice. So you can just go back into your line work layer, and if there’s anything else you kinda need to add to and just maybe bump this up a little bit more. You just gotta make sure that your lines are interesting or they need to be… They don’t all need to be the same thickness. I like having variation in that. I think that helps just make it a little bit more of an interesting piece. So I think that’s it for today, guys.

How to Draw a Cute Dog Illustration – Step by Step Procreate Tutorial

Welcome to this week’s tutorial.

Hi, guys. I’m Kris.  Let’s draw together. In this week’s tutorial, we’ll be drawing a cute little dog in Procreate. And I’m sure you can create this, too, if you follow along all the way to the end of the video. If you feel rushed, be sure to hit pause and just rewind to catch up. And save this video to your library so you can re-watch if you need extra practice. Today, we’ll be using all three brushes found in Procreate. And don’t forget, once you’ve finished this entire video, share it on Instagram, and tag me in the image as well as the description, so I can find your artwork and feature it here on the next draw together video.

 

So for this video, I’ve made you a free color palette just in case you’d like to use the exact same colors that I’ll be using during this tutorial. And so you can just tap on the link in the video description below, and you can download and install it into Procreate. Also below, you’ll find a link to a goody bag I’d love to share with you, and you can check out my shop and support me there. So let’s dive in and set up our canvas at 4000 x 4000 pixels, 300 DPI and sRGB. And I’m gonna start with my trusty old 6B pencil, and it can be in whatever color you want. I’m just gonna have black.  Very classic. It’s at about 40%. That should do the trick. And let’s start with a simple sketch and just get some shapes down.

 

So this dog is gonna be a little bit out of proportion. It’s gonna be more of a character, not quite so realistic. So pushing those little Yorkie boundaries a bit, so we’re gonna make his head a little bit bigger. Now, I’m just gonna start with a circle, and then he’s gonna have some ears, and these are just triangles, of course. And then his little body, it’s gonna come about there. I’m just gonna resize this just by pointing my arrow. I’ve made my head just a touch too big.  I’m running out of room. And so he’s gonna have a little paw here, and a paw here, and those are gonna come in. They’re gonna be fairly straight, really. That’s a little body here. Actually, maybe that’s a little bit too far apart for what I want. Hold on a sec.

Squiggly Little Line

So I’m gonna actually just take… Do my squiggly little line, my selection tool here, just select the lower body and I’m gonna resize it. Actually, I’m going to switch it to free form, so I can lengthen this a little bit. I just want it a little bit more narrow. And stay on free form, if it didn’t do that for me. And just resize this a bit here. I’m just gonna make them a little longer there. Let’s see. That should be good. Okay. And then he’s just gonna have his little feet coming out, you just sort of notice them back here somewhere. So again, this is just super messy. Just getting the feel of it. I’m gonna put in his markings a little bit. He’s gonna have this tier. You know how they’re multi-colored, so he’ll have this tier. Under here, he’ll have this. It’s gonna be darker, and these paws will be lighter.

Okay, so let’s get to the face a little bit. So not quite in the center, a little bit lower than the center. I will do his little nose and his little circle eyes that Yorkies are so known for. I’m gonna do it about that. So we have three of these together, and they’re all roughly same size. And then his silly little mouth. It’s gonna look like this, kind of a scoop, and then a scoop this way. Actually, I’m gonna bring that up a little bit more. So I’m gonna grab my selection tool again. Just select that with the arrow, move it up just a hair, and that should be good. So he’s gonna have his little beard here. So that will be there, and then it’ll kind of go out this part here. I don’t really know what that’s called, but anyway, that part. And we know he’s got this shape, is gonna happen, and then the rest of it is the color or the darker color. The ears are gonna come in like that.

It’s really  looking terribly cute right now

Okay. So that’s pretty much… Wow, it’s really  looking terribly cute right now, but it will in a little while. So I just wanna make sure that I’ve got these in the right spot. I think that’s pretty good. It’s sort of the starting point for our lovely little Yorkie. I’m gonna take this sketch, and I’m going to just knock that opacity down by clicking on the N, and bumping it back down to let’s say 25, and I’m gonna create a new layer on top by hitting the plus sign. So then, I’m just gonna have a pick. Let’s see. Let’s do the eyes first. I’m gonna pick this black, it’s actually charcoal in the palette there, and I’m gonna go grab my inking, and I’m gonna go to the dry ink pen. And let’s see. This is gonna be at about 25%, and I’m just gonna darken these, these in here. And my nose is gonna be not quite a circle, rounded at the top. I don’t even know what shape you call this. What’s that? The shape of a vapes or a Vicks VapoRub? [laughter] I don’t know. It’s what it just reminded me of, that symbol. I’m gonna bring my pen down to about 5% or 6%, just to get in here and get the little mouth.

 

So those are really gonna be the only hard lines that we need for this project. Actually, while we’re here, why don’t we just go and do the little highlights, too? So I’m gonna pick up the lightest cream color, and just do a few little highlights here just on his eyes, just have that, and do a little here. I think I’m actually gonna smudge them out just a little bit, too. I’m gonna take my smudger and I’m just gonna use… Just be on the airbrush, and just a soft brush is fine. And you can just bring that down to maybe 3%, maybe that’s too much, 2%, and just get the edges. I’m just slightly doing it. I still want it to be a little bit scratchy, but just soften it a hair there.

 

Okay. Alright, that’s probably good for now. Alright, so a lot of this is going to be all done with the hair brush, but I think I’m gonna block out some colors first. So let’s just pick a new layer, and just bring that below the eyes and nose. And I’m gonna go and… Let’s see. What am I gonna do? I’m gonna go to the painting and just grab the gouache, that’s fine. You can use airbrush or anything like that, but I’ll use the gouache today. I’m just gonna block in some simple colors here. So I’m gonna do this brown, one of the darker medium ones, and I’m just gonna come in and just fill in this area. So I’m at, let’s say 10%, 100% opacity, just blocking this in. I’m not gonna go too far over ’cause I want the hair bristles to go over there.

 

Let’s just get some basic colors here. And then this is gonna be dark down here, this is gonna be dark. It’s a little foot, maybe we’ll have to do this a little smaller, maybe about a size six. Just get his little foot there, his little foot there. Okay, that’s probably good for that color. And I’m gonna go and grab this, the one right beside it, it’s a little bit warmer, and just fill in the rest. Let’s make this brush bigger again, back up to about 15, and we can just color in there. Again, I’m not going outside just ’cause I want those wispy hair bits in.

 

Actually, I don’t like how I did that paw. It’s probably a little bit too much. I just made it a little bit smaller, maybe about 8% or 10%. Okay, and then we can do his ears, too.

 

Alright. Well, he looks kind of weird, but at least we have a base going, so this is a great start. I’m still thinking I want that mouth a little bit higher up. So I’m gonna go back to my layer with the mouth on it, grab my little selection tool, and I did not grab it, grab my little selection tool and bring that up just a hair. That’s better, I think. Okay. Yeah.

 

Alright. So let’s get some hair going. I’m going to just create another layer on top, I think. I probably don’t need to but, I will just in case, and start with some hair. So I’m going to start with this darker brown. So all we’re gonna do is use what we have native to Procreate. So I’m gonna go in and find the touch-ups, and that’s where you’ll find the hair. I’m gonna select short hair to start with. We might use all of them, and we might just use this one. I’m not sure yet, we’ll see. But all you have to do, you can see with this brush, it just gives you that. So that’s what we’re going to need. So I’m just flicking up, careful not to make a funny shape, otherwise it won’t look like hair, and then just trying to go in the direction of how it falls on the dog. So I’m gonna have, let’s say… What are our settings going to be? Maybe at 30, 32, and at about 80% opacity, roughly. Let’s just start with that. So I’m just gonna be flicking, and like I said, going with the way the hair goes. This is gonna be all about layering, lots of layering, and just building this up and creating that depth. What I might wanna do underneath is push that layer behind just to make it look hairy on the edges. So I might go and do that, too. Let’s see.

 

Let’s do that. Okay, so I’m gonna turn this off, and I’m gonna go back and show you something else. Okay. So we’re gonna go to this fill layer that we did before. I’m gonna go to my smudge tool actually, and go and do the same thing. I’m gonna go to the touch-ups, and the short hair, and just push this a bit, if you can see, just to make that edge kind of furry. And I’m gonna make it bigger, let’s say about 35, and just go and soften that edge. That’ll give us a nice little background to work from, so I’m not working against any hard edges.

 

I probably should have made those touch. It will.

Okay, so I think that’ll be better. So now, if we just go back and turn on the hair layer, you can see you don’t have that harsh line, especially when I turn this off. We can actually turn off our sketch layer, we don’t really need it anymore. Let’s go back to the hair, we’re back to that darker brown, and we’re still on our short hair, it’s still at 80% and at about 30% for size. I’m just gonna keep going around and building that up, keeping in the direction of the hair, but still trying to have some variation and irregularity in it, too, if that makes sense.

 

Alright, I’m gonna bring my brush down a little bit smaller to about 12 or 13, and just do a few hairs on the edges here.

 

Alright. While we have the small brush, I’m just gonna put a few little ones in here.

 

And start building a little bit of depth around his eyes.

Looks angry.

Well, he won’t look mad by the end, I hope. It’s not supposed to.  Now, let’s see. Okay, that’s very tough. Okay, so next, we’re gonna do a new color, we’re gonna bring in this medium color there. And I’m gonna go back to about 30%, and start doing that, and it can overlap, of course. You want it to. We’re gonna have variation in this, just trying to build up those layers and that depth.

 

So you want this to be going this way, and just wanna make sure that you’re always remembering what direction the hair would be going in, naturally falling. I hope you can see this. I know it’s the same color, so it’s overlapping a bit but…

 

This is driving me nuts. I’m gonna move it. It’s too noisy.

 

So let’s do another color and I’m gonna grab this more medium brown color and just just go where the eyes are and start creating some more depth here.

 

This color can go between both colors, so I would bring it into this color, too, and just start to create some depth there.

 

Okay. I think I’m gonna go into the layer behind, just to fill in some of this stuff. I’m gonna go into that solid layer that we did behind with the same color still seems to have… And just fill in some of this behind. I think that’ll help because it’s more interesting when you have the different layers coming in on different layers,  if that makes sense, so the color, not just having the lighter color over top with the dark color, but the dark color over top of the light, and that’ll just make a different look, as well, and really fill that in.

 

Okay. So I think he is looking pretty good. Why don’t we focus a little bit on the eyes, ’cause right now these are just crazy little buggy eyes that need a little bit of work. So let’s go on top, and we’ll do a new layer and I’m gonna go… And I think I’m gonna use my favorite, my inking, my dry ink brush to do this. I think it’ll work. Let’s see. Yeah, I’m gonna be on about 5%, and still with this color that we have, just this dark… Well, actually, let’s start with the medium brown, stay on that, 100% opacity, 5% for size and just start coming in here and just overlapping, so some of the hairs are gonna come in here, and just a flicking motion. Just sort of… So we have some of our own more distinct lines. And maybe they might… Like this other little eyelashes go. I think that… And then there’s gonna be, of course, some hairs from here that come over. I don’t know if that’s a little bit too distinctive. Okay, let’s see. Okay, let’s do the same on the other side to start to build that out.

Don’t know if… I might have this corner here. Okay. And then let’s see… Go to the darkest color and get some in there. I’m just gonna be pushing this. Just a few. And they’re close to it.

Okay. I was starting to sink in there a little bit. Alright. And then let’s get this lighter cream color. He’s gonna have some lighter strands here.

Just really, really lightly.

Erase that.  Okay, let’s see. It’s all about just building this up and getting those lines going. So I’m gonna actually do on a layer below. I’m gonna make a new layer. Just because I wanna experiment a little bit more. I’m gonna go to this medium brown. Let’s go, and back to our non-vintage when I get my touch-ups. Let’s try the fine hair and see if we can get… Let’s go to about 22%. Oh yeah, that’ll work, I think. Just get some more hairs going in the back here that are a little bit more defined, a little bit less, of course, than what we were doing with the ink brush. I just get some more colors going here, more lines. This actually, I think, will work well for some more definition. That’s good.

How about this color? Let’s try that, too. That warmer color. I think I actually wanna add a little bit warmer there. Better.

 

 

Okay, let’s try this lighter cream color and just work a little bit more where the muzzle is.

 

 

Yeah, that works well. You know how they have almost little old man eyebrows here.  That works. That’s starting to look good. Kind of just want a little funny hairs, doing some stuff there just to make it a little irregular. Actually, I’m gonna go on my top layer again just to do a few things, ’cause I wanted them to go over the eyes a little bit. That’s good. Okay, I’m gonna go back to my layer below.

It’s just about layering and layering, and layering. You can go on for a long time, just making this look as realistic… This isn’t gonna look super realistic, but get that fur going as much as you want, for sure. I won’t go on all day today, otherwise this video will be terribly long.  But we’ll get the idea, so you know what to do for little fuzzy creatures like this.

 

There. I just wanted this part to be a little bit separate from this part. I think that’s… Accomplished what I wanted. Yeah, okay. So I’m gonna try to sink this mouth in just a little bit more, so I’m going to just get that dark brown and I’m gonna go back to that fine hair. Same settings, we’re just gonna stay at about… What is this now? Twenty-four, 25, something like that. And just with little short strokes, just kinda… Oh, that’s not gonna work, actually. Let’s bring this down to 12 and just get darker in that corner, just blending that mouth in a little bit more just with little short strokes.

 

I think that’s good. You can pull some of them through, too. This kinda makes him look a little bit like a Muppet.  Alright. I’m just gonna get a few darker in here. Same with around the nose, just pushing that in a little bit.

 

Let’s go… I do have that, okay. Lets go and just continue to darken this area a little bit.

 

Let’s do a little bit more on the ears. I’m gonna grab this medium brown and let’s go to about size 16, 15, something like that. No, let’s go to size about 25. Maybe just do a few more distinguishing hairs on these ears here.

 

And let’s just get the really light white. Put a few in here.

 

Okay. I think I’m gonna go on a layer below and just add some more of this dark brown. Still, same settings on this brush.

 

So I’m really disappointed, the last few minutes of this tutorial, my camera decided to turn off on its own, which is super frustrating. But anyways,  you didn’t miss much. I just kept going and just kept adding a few more layers of just fur. That’s all it was, just a little bit more definition and just layering upon layering. Exactly the same thing that I’ve been doing this whole tutorial. So you didn’t really miss much, so don’t worry. I hope you’re not too disappointed. But I hope you did enjoy this tutorial, and if you did, please hit that like button, subscribe, and don’t forget to hit the bell icon so you can be notified of new tutorials just like this one, hopefully without my camera dying at the end.
