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. So hopefully that was helpful, and I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial, and if you did, please hit that like button, subscribe and don’t forget to hit that bell icon so you can be notified of new tutorials just like this one, or of course ones that we draw straight from scratch.

How to Draw Tropical Fish

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.

 

Nemo Fish

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.

How to Create Designs with Clipart for Projects in Photoshop & Procreate

How to Create Designs with Clipart in Photoshop & Procreate

 

Hey guys, I’m Kris and welcome back to the studio. Today, I’m gonna be showing you my new project, it’s an animal baby nursery clipart pack that I wanna show you how to use in your next creative projects. So I’m gonna go through a demo in Photoshop and then in Procreate so you can see the differences, but you certainly don’t need those programs to use this clipart pack. They’re all PNG files, so you can use whatever graphics editor that you’re comfortable with, and the same principles will apply, so you will still be able to learn lots from this demo. This pack is really cute, it’s a bunch of baby animals that are perfect for nursery themes or anything super cutesie that you like animals for, and it will be available on Monday, December 7th, so if you’re just watching this before then, it’s a sneak peek, so I’m really excited to show it to you. So, let’s get started, we’ll jump into Photoshop first and I’m gonna show you how to make a sublimation template for a pillow. So, let’s get to it.

 

Okay, so you’ve decided to grab this cute little pack here, it’s a bunch of clipart perfect for nursery and baby stuff or anything just cutesie, like I said. So, anyways, you’ve grabbed this and you’ve downloaded it, and now what do you do? So, you wanna go into your downloads folder, and then you’re gonna click on the zip file. So, on a Mac, you’re just gonna double-click and it’s gonna unzip for you. On a PC, you are going to have to use WinZip, I believe, and open it that way. And so now you have this folder, so let’s go peek inside. It’s gonna bring this open for you. So, you have your license, of course, animals, arrangements, balloons, banners, a bunch of extras, flowers, hot air balloons, numbers, stars, moons, and clouds, swings and teacups. Okay, so we can just peak in here and you can see there’s 12 animals, and hopefully, these are arranged easily so you can find everything. There’s flowers, lots of balloons. Okay, so you can see that there’s lots of fun things to create lots of different sorts of things. So, why don’t we jump into Photoshop and I’m gonna create a new file, so I’m gonna go File New, and I’m going to say this is going to… Actually, we’re gonna do inches ’cause this is going to be for a pillow. Let’s say our pillow is 18 inches by 18 inches, and because it’s print, we’re gonna do 300 DPI.

 

Alright, so there’s our new file. So, what I’m gonna do is go and grab some elements to put in it. So today, I kinda love this elephant, it’s one of my faves. So, I’m just gonna drag him in and hit Enter. Then, I’m gonna go and I’m gonna grab a banner, and I kinda like this one, so I’m gonna pop that over like that. Enter. And you know what? Let’s just size it a little bit, I’m gonna do Command or CTRL+T to transform and just bring that a little bit larger, just that kinda goes around his feet a little bit. Okay, and I’m gonna go back to my finder and let’s go… Let’s see, what shall we do? Perhaps flowers, and I’m going to… Let’s see, I’m gonna put some behind. Actually, you know what? Let’s do this. Take this, I’m just gonna place that like that maybe, and you can actually use these already premade ones or you can go into flowers and all the individual flowers and leaves are here. So, why don’t we do that? I wanna just grab a couple, so I’m gonna hold that Command, just grab a few more. Let’s do that one again and the sun and grab that. Oh, just a bunch of stuff. They all coordinate, they’ll all go together.

 

Okay, let me grab a little eucalyptus maybe. Alright, let’s see how… Maybe I’ll grab that too. Okay. I’m just gonna drag them all in and I’m just gonna hit Enter a bunch of times, I think I’m just gonna resize these all together. Okay, so a few more, got it. Okay, so over here, I’m just gonna go into my layers and grab all those flowers and I’m gonna do Command or CTRL+G to make that a group, I’ll be good and name it flowers. Sometimes I can be terrible when I’m doing this  and not name things. So, I’m gonna grab that group and do Command or CTRL+T again and just resize these guys all at once to about there, I think, and hit Enter. And wait,  and then I’m gonna drag my flowers below the banner, in between the banner and the elephant. And then, just start, I don’t know, placing these around, see what happens. Let’s just fill it up a bit and kind of maybe you want some of these guys to go in between, so I’m gonna just drag this layer up in between some of the roses for variation. I might have to resize some of these guys here, so Command T. I’m just gonna play around with it. Okay, I might have a few too many in here, but we’ll see. Bring that up above the leaves, there he is. I just want it nice and full.

 

Maybe bring this one over here and CTRL+T or Command T. Put that in there, okay. And I feel like I need a little bit more green over here, so I’m gonna ____ this. Command or CTRL+J, CTRL+T, and just make a duplicate there. Actually, I kinda wanna, in between these two flowers, just to break that up, so let’s see if we can find those. Oh, yeah. Got it. Okay, so that looks pretty full, I’m gonna bring the elephant up, so I’m just gonna click and drag just to select all of this and pull her up a little bit. Okay, that’s probably good. And I’m gonna just drag and select everybody and CTRL+T, control or command. Maybe that’s getting tired. You know what I mean when I say, “Command” or “Control.”  So, I’m just gonna make that a little bit smaller and hit Enter.

 

Wait a sec. Okay, so that’s probably good. We can personalize this by putting their name on it, which is always a nice touch, so I’m going to just go on the top layer, grab my text tool, and I’m going to… I really like little B, but it doesn’t let me warp the letter, so let’s try Elise, let’s see how this works out and we’re gonna call her Ella the Elephant. Okay, yeah, that should work alright, I’m gonna make this color… Let’s just make it… Let’s make it a nice brown color maybe around there. Okay, and then I wanna go to character and I don’t wanna bold, but I do want it more spaced. Let’s see if 200 is enough. Maybe let’s make it three. Okay, and we can bring that into the middle and I’m gonna make it 72?

 

Sure. Okay, so then I’m gonna go back and make sure I have my text tool. I’m going to go to the warp, I create warp text button, and I’m going to click on “Arc.” And that is not the way we want it to go. We want it to go subtly in this direction, just a little bit. I think that’s probably good. Okay, nice. And I’m gonna set this layer actually to multiply just so it catches that water color paper texture a little bit, and so I think it’s looking pretty… I mean, it was pretty quick to create something like this, I’m just adding a few things, making it your own, and then I’m gonna go to the background layer and so let’s just put something behind it. So, in the extras file, I’ve got some hearts and washes here. So, you just have these things you can put in the background, so I’m gonna grab the pink splash and that’s just a water color splash, can do… Yeah, it works actually just like that, it’s perfect. Let’s see if we add some hearts, if it’s too much, too little, let’s have a look… Oh, why not throw some hearts in there? It looks like this, so it’s mostly covered by the elephant, but I like the little bits. Okay, and I think we might have to, again, select everything and just move it down just a touch. Yeah, I think that looks good. Might need to be a little bit smaller, but we’ll see.

 

Okay, so I’m gonna go and save this. Actually, I’m going to turn off this background layer and save it as a PNG, so I can put it on whatever background color I want, so I’m gonna go to Save and I’m going to… Well, I’ll just create a new folder, I’ll call it “Nursery,” I guess. And we can call this “Ella.” Oops, “Ella pillow.” And of course, we’re gonna wanna save our PSD file just in case you ever wanted to go back and make any changes, and then I’m going to also save it as a PNG. And there we go, I mean that’s pretty straightforward, nothing too crazy, just placing PNGs. Why don’t we now go and see what it would look like in a mockup? This isn’t my favorite mockup, but it’ll give you the idea, so we’re just gonna go back to our finder and grab that PNG and drag it into this mockup here. I’m just gonna scale it a touch, and let’s see what it looks like. So, I’m just gonna do CTRL or Command+S for save, and look at the mockup. This one kinda skews slightly to the right, it would seem, but let’s just… We can do this. Oops, sorry. We can do this, just move it over a little bit and have a look. Still. These mockups are sometimes a little bit funny, but  here we go.

 

You see, I don’t like this silly texture that they have on here, but anyways, you get the idea. There you go. There’s a little cute personalized pillow. So, the reason why I have all these illustrations as individual elements is so that you have the most flexibility and freedom to create totally unique designs. Yeah, it’s just, I’m just trying to give you as much flexibility as possible. So, of course, I couldn’t create this all and have it pre-done, that would be super easy, but if I did that, then you’d be really, really limited in what you could create. So, just even by having these backgrounds, that really helps because you, of course, don’t wanna be using any of these images standalone, and you don’t want it to be easily extracted by third parties. So, you just need to be conscious of that when you’re working with clipart, so why don’t we jump into Procreate next and I’ll show you how to make something very similar using that program. So, let’s jump to it. Okay, so you have downloaded the pack onto your iPad, so what do you do next? You go and find your little files tab here, you’re gonna open it up, yours are probably going to be in your downloads section, but I transferred mine through Dropbox, so mine’s in Dropbox. So, you’re gonna find that zip file, mine’s right here. You’re gonna click on it.

 

And it’s just gonna open up. It should do. Now, if you have this problem and it doesn’t do this for you, try taking that zip file and moving it over to on my iPad, and it should work there for you. So again you can, well let’s do it, click on it and it should give you, if you click on Hold, it should give you the option to uncompress. So try that otherwise you might have to download, there’s a free app, I think it’s called Zip app, and you can download that and give it a go. So that’s how you do that. Now we can pop into, well actually I should show you. So we can look in there and you can see we have all the files, just like we had on the computer. So now we’re gonna hop back into Procreate. I wanna create a new canvas, and I’m going to make this 18 inches by 18 inches or 5400 by 5400 pixels at 300 DPI. And I’m gonna go and grab my elements. So I’m going to click on my wrench and I’m going to go to add and insert file, and I’m just gonna click on this little ____ and bring out these menus. So I’m going to say it’s on my iPad now, and I’m gonna click on the animal babies deal there, and I’m going to, let’s make a hot air balloon.

 

So I’m gonna click on that, and it’ll bring up all my illustrations here and let’s see. What shall we pick? I really like the flower one, but I’m going to do this one for you. So let’s click on this multi-colored balloon. Click yes. Perfect. I’m gonna leave it like that. So then I’m gonna go back to the wrench, add insert file and let’s grab some more things. Let’s make this blue this time. I’m gonna click on this little, this deal, add that, and I’m going to go and insert file again, and this time, let’s do the basket. I’m just gonna bring all of my elements in here. Add another file. Let’s see, should we do some flags? I’m gonna do these blue and pink flags. That should work. Okay, let’s arrange this before we get anything more. So now that these are all on separate layers, which is great, so I’m actually just gonna select them all just by dragging to the right, clicking my arrow, and resizing these attached so just we have some more room here. That should be fine. Okay, about there. Okay, and then I’m gonna bring my basket down, resize that guy. That can be about there. Well I guess I can make the handles work. Maybe about that. Then I’m gonna go grab the flags, resize those. Perfect. And it looks like these are the right size. I’m just gonna angle these a little bit more. So that’s good.

 

Okay, hopefully you can see that there. So let’s go get a character to add to this. I’m just gonna stay on my ribbon layer just ’cause that’s behind the basket, so I’m gonna go grab, let’s see. Oops… Turning that around. Let’s go back to animals and let’s put in the, who should we put in today? How about our… Oh giraffe. Okay, let’s size him and put him in there. Perfect. And let’s see what else can we do? Why don’t we dress this little guy up a little bit. Make him fancy. Okay so insert file. My youngest son, for some crazy reason, is obsessed with top hats and monocles right now, so I had to make those.  So let’s go and find him a hat. We have all these sorts of hats and tiaras and crowns and all those sorts of fun things. So let’s give him a little hat. He likes green, so we’ll do that. Give him a little jaunty top hat. Just that cute. And then we can go oops, I don’t want gallery. Sorry. Back in, grab the wrench, insert file and he’s got this monocle. And I think I’m going to have to flip this guy, so I’m just gonna click on, while I’m in transform, just gonna click horizontal and actually no.

 

That was alright, on the right side there. Just keep it like that, so let’s see. So that’s cute. Gives him a little, very distinguished nature there.  Okay, so then I’m gonna go and let’s see, maybe let’s do some background. So I’m gonna click on that and go and find, what shall we find. Some stars and moons and clouds. So these guys have faces or no faces depending on what you want. I’m just gonna start with some simple clouds first. Let’s make those smaller. It’s just add a few, I’m gonna bring this below the hot air balloon and just duplicate and maybe one more. And I’m gonna flip them, flip horizontal, resize a little bit. Let’s see what works here, maybe there. Okay, and then I’m gonna go, maybe let’s get some stars.

 

And just place that around and duplicate just by sliding to the left and click ‘Duplicate,’ click on your arrow and then just move in the size around a little bit, slide to left, duplicate… You can keep doing this as many times as you want to here. Okay, so that’s pretty good. And then I’m going to go and grab… Let’s see, maybe it will get us… Oh, so seeing I have too many layers, so I’m just gonna go and pinch these, all these stars together till they’re on one layer, and then I wanna go back to wrench and start another file. What was I going to do? I was… Oh yeah, so I was going to get a splash here, and let’s see, I’ll get up the blue one and that actually placement-wise is not too bad, I’m gonna bring it behind this one here. So, if you wanted to make any changes to any colors, let’s say this cloud here… Where is this guy, where is he? So, this cloud here, if we wanted to change the color of him, we can just go and click on a layer, tap on it to clipping mask, and I’m just gonna make it a little bit lighter just to see what happens. So obviously, that doesn’t look very good. So, we’re gonna have to change the blending mode to something, change it to… Let’s see what will work with soft light.

 

Soft light, just lightens it up a little bit. If you wanna do that, that’s not the greatest example for wanting to exchange these colors,  but you get the idea. Okay, so let’s just bring in this cloud a little bit, I think he’s a little bit too far down our composition. Okay, like that, and then I’m gonna go and select all these layers, just swiping to the right. Okay, and then I’m just gonna grab this and just move it more into the center now. Okay, so I think that’s a cute little composition for another little pillow. Super simple, that was really, really quick. It only took me a couple of minutes, and of course, maybe you could, if you’re really good at lettering or something, you could write their names or get that cute font and put that in there and write that. And yeah, just have fun with it. So I hope that was really simple. I didn’t do anything too complicated, and I don’t think there really is anything too crazy to have to do as far as mobile Photoshop and Procreate, really. I think it’s just bringing in layers and just layering them  and yeah, but just putting them all together.
