Intro Procreate Large Floral Wall Art for POD
About This Class
Welcome to Procreate Large Floral Wall Art for POD Sales! Special thanks to many of you who have been attending my other Procreate Brush Classes, Watercolour Floral Abstracts with Procreate, Simple Brushes in Procreate for Quick Compositions, and Fantasy Gardens in Procreate. If that includes you, I know you’ve learned plenty about custom Procreate brushes, but you know I always have more to share with you! And this class takes it one step further by helping you prepare the art and then post it on a POD site like Society6. I will take you along through my process to teach you some of my illustration and wall art design methodology, and ways to use brushes to create a series for sale on POD sites, or possibly for art licensing, which is what I use it for.
In the class, I take you from start to finish in creating a full-sized art piece, using line art flower brushes I have created, as well as a realistic watercolour background. Throughout the class, I talk about inspiration and trying to find your unique niche in the “bold floral art” category. And, I have techniques and advice to save the art in many iterations as needed for the different proportions on POD sites. I use this method to be sure we put our best foot forward with the art, so it is very important that you’ll be creating completely editable and layered art.
In this class I’ll walk you through:
- my step-by-step methodical composition strategies for making wall art in Procreate
- tips for creating layouts for a varied and appealing collection
- my workflow for use of layers and other great features like alpha lock and masks
- adjusting elements to perfect the flow and adding elements in the second iteration of the design
- fully seamless watercolour background creation
- methods for keeping the swatch fully editable for later adjustments and recoloring
If you’re an aspiring pattern designer with a good basic knowledge of Procreate, you’ll be able to go through all the steps. This class will benefit anyone who wishes to simplify creation of artistic layouts and methods to improve efficiency.
The key concepts I will include:
- review of my brush alterations and adjustments
- alpha lock and masks
- a look at Procreate brushes and their various idiosyncrasies
- approaches you can take in your creative work
This is an ideal class for you, even if you are not sure about POD sales, or whether it is for retail direct sales, or even for personal use. Learning new Procreate workflows is always desirable. I guarantee you will come out of this class with something really appealing, and the techniques are valuable no matter what you are creating.
Challenge yourself today and download and install the Procreate brushes provided to get started on your large floral layout. Work through each of the lessons, applying the concepts as I teach them. Try to create at least one brush, and experiment with changing settings on that one and the brushes provided. Create a watercolour abstract background with added textures. Try to keep layers separated so they can easily be adjusted. Once complete, try using it on a mock-up and post it here to share with your fellow classmates, as well as posting to a POD site. Good luck!
