I have no idea what to write in this one, but I really love the colors and the way the roses came out.
Did I mention the lettering practice? (I’m also going through a rainbow phase, if you hadn’t noticed.)
Allllll the lettering practice lately. All of it. My hands hurt. I’ve developed a tic where I two-finger tap on whatever surface I’m working on to undo my last stroke. I tried it in Photoshop and on the surface of the dining room table and was sorely disappointed it didn’t work both times. Send help.
Tim effectively gave me his iPad mini and the Apple Pencil because I might have been hogging them for drawing purposes. *ahem* After spending more time with Procreate, I’ve decided to upgrade to an iPad Pro in the future. More screen real estate and larger file sizes would be ideal for printing things.
Practicing shapes and perspectives and refining my strokes and playing with colors. I find myself really looking forward to my evening practice on the iPad.
Something I’m learning about Procreate…the default brushes aren’t cutting it for me. At some point I probably need to branch out and make some of my own, but in the meantime, I went in search of tutorials and found Wooly Pronto’s YouTube channel; the above were made with her free brushes.
I’ve been working on this one for about a week on and off. I outlined the letters in Illustrator, then moved to Procreate on the iPad to draw the flowers and foliage. It went through a lot of iterations before it started coming together. An earlier screenshot:
The behavior of our nation is disheartening, to say the least, so this is my response; trying to make lemonade from lemons.
Tim loaned me his iPad so I could fiddle around with the Apple Pencil and the full version of Procreate. I need so much practice, but I appreciate the ability to work in finer detail than I can when drawing with my finger, and the pressure-sensitive features make it easier and more intuitive to write script. I may have to sneak them away again soon.
