About this Class:
I hope you are ready for more dimension in Procreate, because that’s what this class is all about. The art we will be producing today looks like an authentic paper cut flower, all inspired by a poster I saw. This class, Create a Realistic Dimensional Paper Flower Using Shadows and Highlights, will show you some of my illustration and dimension creating methodology. We will mainly be using Procreate airbrushes to paint the soft highlights and shadows, and there will be a ton of info on drawing and general use of selections and a few other shortcuts I think are relevant.
In the class, I take you from start to finish in creating the dimensional flower, while of course adding details to make it unique. I supply a set of guides to help you with the initial drawing of the petals and explain an efficient method to repeat the petals once drawn. One of my goals is to show you how we’ll be able to manipulate the flower once it is complete.
In this class I’ll walk you through:
- my step-by-step method for creating the initial flower drawing
- my workflow for use of selections, layers and other great features like snapping
- adjusting to perfect the shadows and highlights
- creating a textural and interesting background
methods for keeping the flower composition fully editable for later adjustments and recoloring
If you want to try something new and different and you have a good basic knowledge of Procreate, you’ll be able to go through all the steps. This class will benefit anyone who wants to brush up on Procreate skills and figure out new methods to improve efficiency.
The key concepts I will include:
- review of my drawing techniques for repeating elements
- building up shadow and highlights for effective dimension
- approaches you can take in your creative work
This is an ideal class for you, even if you are unsure of an application for the art. I can see it being used for greeting cards or tea towels, or whatever! New Procreate ideas are always fun to play with. I swear you will create something really neat, and it’s so satisfying!
