Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hey, welcome to the art of self expression. My style is colorful and expressive. I enjoy creating art that illustrates of measures of power, beauty and individuality. I believe arts isn't all of us. It speaks to a part of us. We are where we come from. We want to go. But we want to be this. Our voice visualized, have a lot of shrieks. Plans a graphic designer illustrator. I have a degree in graphic design and a love of learning new ways to explore and express new ideas. This'll class is great for professional freelancers and hobbyists. Anyone in between. You can use these skills to do both traditional artwork and digital illustrations. The end of the class. You leave brand stomach concept, collect inspiration and illustrate your vision in a print ready poster. Along the way, we're learning some illustration, tips and tricks to help you personalize your work. What's your visions? Let's go ahead and start it 2. Class Project: you know, is it? So what's his class all about? We will create a stylized digital portrait with an inspirational quote. Words Oh, motto of your choosing. I'll be walking you through the process of how create these portrait and exploring different ways. We can experiment with color, texture, patterns and accessories to make your fortress more self expressive. This project is perfect for those with basic drawing skills in a desire to learn. If you want to follow the digital project, you'll need Procreate five or digital drawing after of your choice and I've had in an apple pencil. I encourage everyone to show their progress as well as their finished piece. Maybe even try the same steps on a different reference, like an animal instead of a person. Ask questions and offer tips. We're all here to help. The best way to go about this class. It's not Take yourself too seriously. Have fun with it and make the project all about you. Next, we're gonna die right into the procreate interface and some foul set up basics. See you there 3. Finding Inspiration: coming up with ideas is something I love to do. I'm always on the lookout for a beautiful design and inspiration. Inspiration can come from many, many places, our environment, blog's books and magazines. I would like to read the music that we love. And, of course, the Internet. A natural environment is a great place to source, color and texture. Blog's books and magazines are great for design, inspiration, composition, topography and trends. I'm gonna walk you through some of my favorite resources and show you how I use them. My ghostly resource is our magazines Pinterest on Splash, Adobe Color, Be Hands and my instagram and Feet, where I follow artists and brands that I admire. I will go into detail about how I use Pinterest for this project. So added the link to my pinchers paged to the resource is Tab. I'll start with my main page. I've been on Pinterest for a few years now, and I've accumulated over 30 boards of inspiration and ideas. I tend to gravitate towards bolt images Are illustration graphic design and true design, color, textiles and pattern. I love African American art, history, textiles, fashion and culture. Those hold a special place in my heart, and they have a heavy influence on my inspiration choices as well as my art. For this class, I created a skill share Resource is bored when searching for inspiration. Think of the vibe or move that you're going for. I'm going for a hopeful confident by my test consist of words like resilient, bold and gratitude. With this in mind, I was looking for images that were bright, powerful and colorful. So with that in mind, I'll show you how I searched for bright, powerful images that would help me express what I was going for in my illustration. So we'll start back here at the main page. What I'm on isn't actually on an iPad, so I'm on the app. So the scream I look different depending on what device you're looking at it on. But for this one, we're gonna go down here and click the search button, and I'm gonna type in right gold illustration. And here we have our first options. You can scroll down and see it. It's an infinite number of options toe pin to your board. So I'll just start here at the top. I have this image here. I really like the color palette, the florals with the pinks in the red and greens early and filling that one. So if you want to save it, it's gonna go ahead and click. Save, pick the board that I wanted to go on. We'll just go with this one, and there we have it. Upend this in desperation onto my board, So use Mehlis races later. Another tip. When you found something that you like Unless say, you want to kind of piggyback on that image, you can simply scroll down and pictures will pull up images that are similar to the ones you've already selected. So you have a starting point, and then navigators promise. Carry on and pinning and pinning images to your boards toe. Add to your inspiration. Once you've gotten started, just go ahead and pin as much as you like. Try different types of inspiration outside of illustration. Look into topography. Interior designers. Great option for color Photography is a good one. Fashion and textiles These all my go to resource is outside of illustration. Graphic design Pinterest Ashley isn't the only place for finding inspiration. If you're not using a selfie your photo of yourself that someone else is taking a good place to find. A reference photo is a website called Unspool Ash, I'll take you there. I slash is a great reference for freeze. He used images you can scroll through here and search for portrait images that reflect the mood and the VAP picture going for you could simply download the images and at those to your mood ward later on. Well, when we started the actual trace next we're gonna die right into the appropriate interface and some foul set up basics. See there. 4. Procreate Setup: for the project. I'm working with appropriate five on an iPad with first generation apple pencil. We're gonna go over how to set up your canvas and procreate. We're creating in eight, but unprintable poster with that mind, we're gonna create a custom campus eyes just for this project appropriate comes with default. Campus eyes is ready for you to use if you want to see the settings on any of those preset campuses simply swiped left, this reveals the option to edit the canvas. This also allows you to check the resolution and a number of layers East campus is set up with. But today, we're gonna go over. We're gonna make our own. Since we want to print our project, we're going to set up our campus as a back tune with a d. P. I of 300. So from the Galloway, click on the plus, um, by the top, right. And then the plus icon next to new canvas. My default measurements are in pixels. So born a button, I'm gonna put my measurements at 2400 by 3000 pixels. If you prefer inches or centimeters, you have those options also. Ah, this is a great time to name Eyeball. What I'm gonna do is Albany in mine still share Dash 20. Then I want a quick say, and once it saved, the campus will automatically open on its own. So I want to go over some common gestures that I use here in appropriate. The ones I use the most are undo, redo, zooming, rotating in color field. Also use the quick shapes are pretty often, too, so I'll go over there with the all too. So I want to start with zooming. So we have a word here, and if I wanted to get in close to, say, do some detail work, I'll simply take two fingers and move about two fingers close to each other, a four part zoom into by illustration. Now, if you want to rotate your image, use the same two fingers to pinch in and out while rotating your wrist to get your campus to move in whatever direction you wanted to. The other option that I use a lot or undo and redo so undo is a quick two finger tap. You could go back as many functions as you like, and the redo is a quick three finger tap. Now you go to get all your images to come back. Um, color fill is good for when you have shapes. Similar how we're gonna have another illustration later in the class. Say you have a circle and you don't want it to be just a line. You simply pull your color over from couple several and drop it in. There you have it a color field. So let's say you wanted to have that same circle, but she wanted to be a perfect circle. So for a quick shapes, if you need a perfect circle, you can do your best circle and hold your pen at the end. What you find is the this function here at the top. Edit the shape you can click circle Inappropriate will convert. Insulate perfect circle for you from here. You could manipulate it with these points, or you can keep it the same and dropper color in, and now you have a perfect circle. So I work a lot with curvy organic lines. But if we need a straight line, appropriate can help you with that. Also, simply draw line. And at the end, what would your pin pan inappropriate will straighten the line out for you. From here, you can elongate it. You could make it short. You can move it to whatever direction you wanted to go in and just lift your pen. And there you have it a straight line. So another way to use that pinching motion that you used to zoom in and zoom out is to merger layers in tow. One. So you say, Take your two fingers and when you have your letters printed open. If you have multiple layers that you want to immersion toe one, you simply pitch the mall together and there you have it. They have been merged into one. Speaking of layers, when we get into tracing and refining our illustration, speaking of layers, when we get into tracing and refining our illustration, knowing how to select, edit and manipulate layers will be essential. Washer campuses opened up by default. You have a background layer and another layer named layer one to open your layers panel, click the layer icon at the top and tapped earlier. You want to select the activated Warren will be highlighted in blue. Swipe left, and you'll reveal the lock duplicate and elite options with your later selected Click the N here and you open the blend modes as well as the Opacity Adjustment Bar. Let's go back to the layer menu, tapping a layer to open up even more options like Alfa Lock Phil. Clear every name. When you create a detailed illustration, you're going to use multiple layers, so renaming them as you go will come in handy. So our summer for this lesson will be to set up our canvas to begin practicing the sources . Tab says. We're using a reference photo for illustration will need to add it to the canvas as a new layer. Click the wrench icon to open the actions menu, click ahead and then insert vile. And once you found your file, go ahead and add it. Once this into the campus, you can go ahead and adjust it. You do have these options here below. Before today, we're just gonna keep go ahead and tap our selection button to de select it and leave it there. So now what we're gonna do it is when a tap open our layer menu one tap the n there were going to lower the opacity I want to tap it one more time. Like rename. Everyone call this source. Okay. So just tap anywhere on the campus to go ahead and close that up. So now you've got in your camera's ready to start practicing next. Once review brush is gonna go over. How we important brushes, brooking them together and pretty See you there. 5. Making Faces: practice makes better, right? In this lesson, we're gonna practice making faces when using photos, source from the Internet or even a selfie. We're looking at it as a reference for proportion. Lift. I knows placement. The final details are what will make a unique we're not looking to copy, but to build on the framework it provides the place ment and the styling of these features could make an illustration look happy, serious or somewhere in between. For this lesson, we're gonna practice on the practice sheets that I provided in the resource is tab. Go ahead and APP uses a new layer. Lower the opacity and lock them in place. This one, a simple pencil or paintbrush, will work out just by once. One side is to trace what you see and the other is a personalized drawing. By changing the facial features, accessories, hair or clothing, take a step further if you like, and change the background or test out your text replacement. So again, we're striving for perfection. Here we are striving for expression. Keeping this in mind for ideal last faces is a good idea to keep it simple. The face has three sections and use a simple shapes and lines. Some proportion tips are the top portion for our some proportion. Tips are the top portion of the hit is the forehead. The middle is where the eyes nose browse and live. The middle is where the eyes nose and browse our. The bottom third is where the mouth in the chin are for placement. Think of the dividing lines as baselines with the nose to sit on and height lines for the broad line. Eyes in the mouth both fall into the center of their sections. So, as I mentioned earlier, practice makes better. So keep at it until you're comfortable and have an idea of how you want to personalize your project illustration. That's your exercise for this lesson. Just keep practicing until you're ready to move on to. Our next step will be getting into lettering. We're going to keep this really simple, and when you break it down into three easy steps, see you there 6. Brushes: procreate allows you to create several types of artwork. It comes with several default brushes that you can use to create all kinds of artwork. If you want something more specific, there's a healthy market out there for procreate brushes all across the Web. But for this class, I'm mostly sticking with the default brushes and a few important brushes. So if you click on the brush icon, it'll open the brush library on the left. You have everything that's already installed and on the right you have everything that's within that particular set that you clicked on. So if you click on a different set, it will bring up everything that's in that set. And then, from there you can click on a particular brush tap twice, and it'll open the rush studio. Now, this is the perfect place to preview your brush, to see what it looks like. If you make changes to it, I would have looks like by the fall so you can see what your breast does when you a plaster and precious to it. If you change any of the settings that we hear over that we have over here on the left, there's all types of settings that you can change for a brush. So since we are using some imported brushes, I wanted to show you how you can import brushes into your library to import brushes. Just click of the top on the plus symbol, and we're reopening the brush studio here. You know, custom brushes or import a new one. So we re opened bra studio. But now we want to imports. So wanna click import gonna locate aren't brushes. So now we've imported an individual brush. It goes by default to this imported library here. So once we're there, we're just gonna go ahead and find the new Ah, So once we're there, we're gonna go ahead and find our new brush tap on it, and we're gonna group it together with another set. So in order to do that, we're gonna drag and drop it from the imported group over to our new place. There's gonna hold on to it. And there we go. It'll had a little plus symbol, and we go on hover over the labrum. You want to put it in, and that one will open, and now we drop it in. So there you have it. That's how you import an individual brush. So if you had a set when you want to import that, you go about it the same way. But when it comes over into appropriate is gonna come in as a full set, named by whatever the foul name is. So once you've imported your brushes, let's say you want to change the name of the of that set. You could simply tap on the name twice. It'll open this panel here where you have the option to rename it, delete it, share it or duplicated so wouldn't click remain. And we can change it to whatever you want it to be. Click outside and there you have it. You have your new set. So another tip is if you want to customize a brush so you already have a brush, you like it, but you want to tweak it a little bit. So ah, good idea with that is to duplicate it first and make the changes to the duplicate. So once you have the breast that you want to make some changes to just go ahead and do that left slide Open up this menu here quick duplicate And there you have it. You can open that new brush and make all the changes that you like. So for this lesson, your quick exercise is to import the brushes from the skill share resource is tab and practice using them, does it? 7. Making Letters Easy: So for our lettering practice, we're gonna break this down into three easy steps. Says dive right in and this select a smooth brush. So I'm gonna go ahead and select the smooth brush. I'll go with his monoline brush here, so we're going to start off with the word bold b o l d. So I'm gonna write it very simple for right now, so that's step one. Step two, We're going to create shapes out of the lines that we had for each letter. I want to make sure all our points are connected. So we're creating a space for the color to fill. That is the third step. So I'm gonna pull our color over to each letter and fill it in. There you have it. It's very simple. Doesn't need to be complicated. When we go to the actual illustration, we're gonna we're gonna draw the words around an image. So we do want to be flexible and have some options as to how we want to write it out. Keeping in mind proportion the amount of space that you're gonna have an eligibility at the end of the day. You do you want to be able to read the text that's on your your poster. So an even simpler ways to use the lettering brush from the brush brush library. We're gonna go to our brush library and pick out a lettering brush. Appropriate comes with some lettering brushes about a fault, but I'm going to use tinder box today. This one's a lettering brush, but it has some texture to it gives it a little bit of character. I'm gonna go ahead and select that just the size I say. So you want to adjust the with to your desired thickness. Now with your best handwriting, you want practice writing your chosen texts. So I'm gonna go with my word here and try in different forms and see how I like it. Depending on your illustration, you might want to go with Maurin formal writing or choose something that's more fun or more modern. That's the whole point of this whole thing is to be expressive and to do something that really speaks to you. So another thing. If you are still thinking of what you want to say, a good inspiration would be your favorite quotes or songs, or even books that you read recently. There are some lettering examples in the Pinterest board. The skill share resource pin board of where you guys to look at just in case you need some further reference. Oh! 8. Initial Trace Part 1: So now that we've gotten some practice, we practice faces in lettering. We're going to take some time together, are chosen reference photo in our move board. We're going to talk about color. Also, it's beginning to the illustration. So the line work question that a simple black but would to be just fine when we start with our color, we wanna have our brushes and our color palette chosen and sets in the fall. So, looking at your inspiration Thea images you chose for your mood board see there any common colors. For instance, my favorite color is blue, also like bold colors and contrast. The dark blue and green stood up for me the most where she can see in this illustration. Here the dark blue background was a lot of the light blue, and the pops of green really stood out to me. So did shoot some colors from that. How did it in procreate is to use the color picker from the photo. I wanted it to feel hopeful, confident and grounded in the worst in the sayings that I was expressing with the illustration. So the blue background, the pops of bright green kind of did the trick for me. The colors that I picked along with some accent colors. I went ahead and pull. Those two decide using the color picker and a simple brush included some color palettes in the resources Simply drag and drop the swatches files into your op ed directly into the palate libraries for important them. So we're going to click on our Carla will quick pallets, and I'm gonna drag and drop. And if this is the palette of choice that you want to use, go ahead and click default and go back to your disk and you're ready to go. Now I will show you how I created my color thumbnails to get a visual reference on how the illustration will look in different color palettes. This part is optional, but is really quite helpful. Oh, while the source layer is active, go ahead and click the plus symbol to create a layer on top of that. This is going to be where our line work is going to be done. And we're gonna select the preferred pencil. I'm gonna go with the six b pencil and check my size too big. So before you start, make sure you're on the correct layer, So gonna so let the layer above our image. So I'm starting with the main parts of her face, her hair and her torso. I know where I wanted to have on a T shirt or a sweatshirt and already like the shape of her here in a direction she's looking in. These were two of the reasons why I chose this photo. Actually, once I get the major parts of the face, head and body out right back. - So now I have a general outline of the source photo and I have a basic idea of the direction I'm going in, simply turning off the source layer to see just illustration. So this one is a good time to you kind of think about, OK, do I, ah, referenced the sunglasses in the color thumbnail and I think that's still a good idea. So I'm actually going to add in the sunglasses, but I'm gonna do it on a separate layer because they're still not 100% sure I'm gonna keep those. So this 1/2 what I need from the source photos, I'm gonna go ahead and keep that off and then from now we're going to do is kind of think about where she is in this space and where we want to place the text as well as how much text. So on my mood board, I had about 12 words. So I want to keep that in mind because what I'm gonna use our text bubbles for some of the words. And I want to have enough of those two have space for all the words that I wanna have won the illustration. So at this point, I'm gonna kind of test out some layouts to see where I can place the words. So this is my final draft. I chose to remove some of the hair from one side of her head to make room over here for these saying, rise up and slay the day. So I needed quite a bit of room to make all of that fit. So I was one ahead and deleted that and added this text bubble. So I have enough room for that phrase. I kept the glasses and added a few flowers throughout the background. Give it some femininity, and I think that's where my pink color is gonna go as an accent. I added her crown as well as the phrase resilient vibes on Lee to her graphic T based on the color thumb knows that we did previously. I already know what my color palette is going to be. And I know that I do want the backgrounds through the dark blue and I want accents of the lighter brute blues. So based on our color thumbnails, we already did Previously I know my color palette. I know the background is gonna be this duck from shade here, and we're gonna have the other shades of blue as accents in the foreground. And I want to use the green to highlight the text. So the text bubble like the one you see here with the green and the text inside will be white. So now is a good time to check out Russia Library to make sure we have all our favorites grouped together. So we are doing the code a portion of our final after we have all our brushes ready and set to go. Then I'm gonna go ahead and pick the first brush that I'm gonna use is gonna be the model line brush here and we're gonna get started. I got some of my cover in place. I want to see what the backgrounds gonna look like in the different color will see later. Blues. So we had a late for this specifically football background color, but important but actually prefer to use a separate their toe, have greater control over, interacts with everything else. So it's gonna go back. Sarah, I later here and add a new one. I'm just gonna move that. Immerse that down, I'll slide it down and rename it background, right? Wrong color snow. I'm just gonna pull cut it down from the color with you and see how it goes. So I'm looking at how the dark background helps the other cars toe out, and even the texture in her shirt shows that better on the darker background, some confident in my color tracing that. But for the moment I'm gonna go ahead and cut it. Turn that layer off while continues more of the background. So here, with these text bellows, I know each shape is going to be filled in with color. So I was a good time to review the couple threshold and procreate So I have just expertly here, and I want to fill it in with a green color here. So what, To make sure the coast select it and I'm gonna pull it over to the text bubble. And as you can see the top, there is a new process. Coach showed 97.6 was a little my pain across the book. You'll see the end lines up, how much colder has been filled into the shape. So you adjust it, Teoh, you want it. And right now I'm at 76 point. Once I'm gonna leave it there and I my shape is filled. Comes a point where I believe I have enough of colors and I feel like I'm kind of going to bring in some of the right and some of the pink also for the background. Before we did, I'm gonna go ahead and get started on her face so we can really work in some of those so reducing the opacity to reveal the work that we have underneath. So I use as my to do the actual color line work. - So when at the future of the face and I'm gonna stick with coming fi shades darker than her skin. Just keep her face and being too harsh. Also, we wanna reference back to the practice videos when we were going over faces and how to add personality to your frustration as well. Aziz finer details to kind of make the face unique and not a copy of the airways in those source for. 9. Final Trace Part 2: new. We're going to get into her eyeglasses. I'm going to select that layer Turnell. Later on, I'm going to use the monoline brush in its largest setting. I'm going to add a new layer on top of the sketch and also gonna use the quick shapes tool to create perfect circles for each side of her eyeglasses. - Now that I have, once I complete, I'm gonna use thes selection tool to make any adjustments that I might need to make to the circle to get it to the perfect size. They don't want to do a quick four fungal swipe down to reveal the copy and paste menu wants a copy and paste this shape while it's still selected in order to create the exact same shape to use for her right side. So once I've got this copied over to the right, I'm gonna go ahead and make any adjustments. This one's gonna be slightly smaller than the other, just based on the angle that her face is facing. So we're gonna make those adjustments again with the selection tool in the apple pan to get a just to where I needed to be. I'm gonna assume in and out. Just kind of get an overall view to see if it's just how I want it. Before I move on to the next step, It's not gonna do a quick pinch. Two murders delay er's together. So now I'm gonna draw in the bridge to the eyeglasses to bring both sides together, and I'll still need a stem for the right side there. And I'll get to that in a second. I'm still using the same monoline brush in the same with to keep everything consistent. - So now we have our eyeglasses complete. Now we're gonna come to the part where we're going to erase out the sections that are gonna be behind her hair and behind her nose. - So now we've come to the part where we're going to start feeling in our words, that are gonna be in the background. We're gonna go ahead and start with the text. Bubbles will select the pen of choice. And this is where our lettering practice is gonna come into play. I'm gonna add a new layer for the text. I'm also going to reduce the opacity of these sketch layer so I can use it as my guys to place my words in the background when I've gotten some of that done, I'll be right back. Oh, from from Boom. So I'm actually once you pause here because I just realized I forgot to put in on her earrings. So I'm gonna go in and do that, going to add it to the layer with her glasses on it. - So now I have all of the words and phrases that I was gonna use for the background. Now I'm going to and the graphic to her graphic T shirt. So now I'm going to use the add text feature. Inappropriate. So we're gonna open up the actions menu by clicking the wrench and they want to click add text. So from here on the left, I have the list of funds that I already have installed, so I'm gonna select my front choice. So from here, I can edit various aspects of the find such a the text. So from here, I can edit various aspects of the fine like the size we have the current ing tracking leading and the capacity is also good feature to be a better from here. I'm going to stick with 100%. I'm gonna use this toggle over here on the right to make sure that my letters are all in caps. Don't want to add change the word resilience. I use case when these are nodules here to move or remove our word around. So I wanted to feel most of this space. I might go back and edit the text to make it bigger. No, but I see it in the green box. We're gonna make it a little bigger. I see. Yes, I'm happy with where it is their climax. You're gonna add more to it, but I'm gonna go back to my actual handwriting and we're gonna go back to our the lettering brush that we were using earlier to create. The rest of the phrase is going to say resilient vibes only. So I want the vibes only portion to be in the dark blue, and I'm gonna switch back to the brush I was using earlier. So there you have it. Now we have her to shirt is complete. So at this point, I'm going to be adding the small details, the lines and the flowers in the accent color to bring a little more diversity to our color palette. - So I went ahead and added some more details to the background. I just giving some more life in some more movement to the illustration altogether. Now what I've done is I've moved this sketch layer up some toe, be in front of the T shirt. So now what I want to do is take a lighter color blue with my prickly pan brush and add in the lines of her T shirt. So I'm creating a layer in between the two. The actual sketch earlier I want to draw on, but I don't want to put it directly on the T shirt, so I'm gonna put the lines only wish on the gonna put the lines on the layer on top of the shirt, but underneath the sketch. So there we have it. We have our complete illustration. I was going for something confident yet hopeful, and I hope that division that you were going for for your illustration has also been achieved.
