1. Introduction: the day I started working with appropriate. My workflow has really changed in a super compatible and so intuitive. It feels like you're just working on paper. Hi, my name is the shop and artist and illustrator Abir, Graphic designer From in this last, we're going to level off our floor using one after and broke. I'm going to explain the process. I used to digitize my traditional artwork and procreate. Trust me, you really don't need a computer or a laptop on a drawing tablet. All you need is a my part appropriate up and an effort Pencil. Well, it may sound a little strange, but trust me, the process is really very simple. I'm going to use watercolors as an example for the class, but you can use any medium that you're comfortable with. I'll be showing you how you can use different tools and this app to clean up the artwork and bring them together to make a case of peace. The class covers a lot of tips and techniques from planning a team creating color power, creating elements, scanning, bringing them to procreate, clean of the artwork and then create a project. Then I'll give you the best way to use your elements, create projects and turn them into markups and sell online. Sounds a lot, right? But don't worry. I have divided the class into small chunks that are simple and easy to follow. I'll also explain the best ways to get files and procreate to get the right resolution. Not only that, I'm also gonna show you how you can make changes and even fix mistakes that we sometimes make on paper. This class is best for artists, illustrators and designers who are passionate about making art and also money. So if you have a basic knowledge off appropriate response families, this class is perfectly so what are we waiting for? Let's get stuff. 2. Supplies: way. Welcome to the course. Digitize your traditional art and procreate to get started. I'll walk you through the supplies we need for the class. So, as I mentioned before, I'll be using mortar colors for my project in this class. But you are free to use any kind of medium that you want to. The reason I chose watercolors is because we know watercolors are quite transparent and leave unique textures and tones that we hardly get with other mediums. And sometimes digitizing watercolors can be a little tricky. And I wanted to cover the maximum complexities that we may face to urine digitizing our artwork. So I found with watercolors to be the perfect medium for this class and to just brief it out. I have used cans and Excel paper, some wrong brushes, a set of watercolor paints, a job for water and a hard double. After the traditional supplies, we need an iPad, a stylus or an apple pencil procreate app. Ah, scanner. I'm using absent 3 39 and a computer to get your scans done. And apart from these tools, I have also used Dropbox to transfer the fires toe 3. Planning: e o e. I talk about how blood and greedy So first things. First we need to have a team for our project. For example, For this class, when I was starting over the class, it was almost friend time. So spring was a team that George that was very simple. So you can choose anything that you want to do some wedding invites, big shot or anything like that. I also provided a list off some of the teams in your contract section. You can always have a look and get some ideas from there for the team, for your project for this class. Now, once you have selected a team, just try to find some inspiration about the team. I usually use Pinterest for finding inspiration. You can also check on Splash Start com, which provides royalty free images. I have also provided the links to some off the websites that provide beautiful pictures taken by Amazing for the gaffers around the world. You know, once we have our team ready, three can start with thinking about the objects on duties that we want incorporating a project, looking someplace yesterday, no, on a piece of paper. So for example for this class. I selected some off Moody's florals for the age off school mothers like that. So I know we have a P. We have a list of elements. Now comes the color color palette really plays a very important role in any kind of project . I've also provided the links to my Pinterest boards for color palettes, florals, fully age and spring inspiration. You can always have a look at these boards and get some inspiration from there. And to make it easier for you, I'm providing some off the hand painted Florence foliage on watercolor. Bagram scanned at 600 DPR. In case you don't want to paint, you can use these files and create your own projects in this class. Now we are ready with the project team A list off elements on a color palette. Let's move on to our next video, in which I'll talk about some of the key points that we need to keep in mind when we digitize our work. 4. Points To Consider : all right. So before we start painting, I wanted to talk about some off. The important point that we need to keep in mind for such projects where we need need to digitize our artwork, and the first point I want to mention here is, always use the same type or brand of paper for your traditional art when you especially digitizing your artwork. For example, in this one, I have used water colors, and I've used cans and excel as this office for my paintings or element. In case you have used different papers, the texture and the elements will be different, which will not look cohesive and will not give you the right results. Let's just compare to papers here. This is Skansen excell, which doesn't have a lot of tooth. It has quite smoother texture, I would say on the other paper, I want to show you as a local brand, which I used for some practice work, and you can see the difference between the textures since we're going to scan these papers at a very high resolution, so the texture will be quite visible on when you scan your artwork. So this is the reason that I'm stressing a lot on using the same type of paper for your art book. All right, so next point to consider is planning off color palette. So if you're going to work on a project, planning a color palette really helps you out in getting the desired results in any project . So when I was starting out over this class and it was almost spring time, so spring was the team that I chose, and I took some inspiration from Google and Pinterest, and I just wanted to use some soft colors so you can see that ice washed out some off the pains on I mixed matched some off greens blues together to bring out These are beautiful shades and, I think month, some off those which I really like, but this is not necessary to use exact same colors. It's just an idea that I'll be using some off. The colors are maybe, you know, making some variations to these shades. So making a color chart or a palette beforehand really help in bringing on the perfect results that you want to see. So after color palette, I would say the most important point is painting or drawing your elements separately. The reason why I am saying this is buoyant. We're digitizing on artwork. We have to remove the back white background of the paper, and if any of the elements are overlapping or they're touching each other, it becomes very difficult while we're digitizing or cleaning up our artwork. So creating all the elements separate makes it very easy to clean up the art book. And second benefit, I would say, as you can make multiple projects, he was in the same set off elements you can create. You know, different projects, like a greeting card are different off Lover Bouquet, for example, are read on. It's like you're just separating out all the elements and keeping them in layers, which I'll be showing you in the upcoming videos. So next comes the fourth and the final point that is, avoid using very, very light arms. The reason why I am saying this is when we are scanning our artwork, even if you are using highest GP, I like 1200 FBI or 6 600 FBI. Still, there are chances when you are going to clean up the background. You are going to lose some information on your artwork, so I would highly recommend using some mid terms Are doctors are always fine, but do not use very light tones that you can see. This one is very, very light which is very close to white. So I do not recommend using such like tombs because they're gonna increase the amount of work. And it's gonna be very, very tedious while cleaning up your artwork in procreate or any other tool. All right, so now we have covered all the important points that we need to take care off while creating such projects. Like Jumper would do our next video in which I'll show you the process, how I created these motives on paper. 5. Painting Elements 1: So before I start on painting, I usually create a color chart which helped me in keeping my palate in sync. So I'm gonna swatch some off the colors like pink, red, yellow, blue, green it spectra and mixed some of these colors to create beautiful shades out of them. Think thank you. So now that I have my color child ready, I'll just make some splotches and large backgrounds using some off these shades, which can be used in our artwork or digital designs as backgrounds are giving different textures and all. Now I'm going to use wet on wet technique by applying water and then adding some color to it so that I can get as many effects award regulars as I can so that I can show you the complications that we may face my digitizing or art, since more dollars is one of the most transparent medium that we use. So that is the reason that I chose watercolors as as an example for this class. I'm also going to add some abstract shapes, or maybe hearts like this, which will give very cute feel. But I'm just using a soft color and, as you know, that what The colors tend to lighten after their dry on paper, so you can see that it looks darker now. But once they're dry, they will look very light. These tiny strokes, which are making using the smaller brush, can be used as fillers for bouquets or flower arrangements. So just try out different strokes, off brushes, different brushes, different colors and you'll be amazed how they can be used in digital world. Not that I'm happy with the backgrounds and abstract elements like these. I'll move on and create some flowers and foliage. I'm not very good at making lose floral. So whenever I have some doubt, I start with a simple flower over five petals and then move on with some complicated flowers. Now making a few roses by the starting out with dot in the center and then, um, creating see shapes for the larger brush like so now I'm gonna add some other flowers, like peonies or any random shapes that look like florals. They don't have to be perfect. They just need to look like Florence or whatever your team relates to. So just feel free to create your own stuff on. Just enjoy the process. And now I'm gonna add ah, flower ship like daisy or so on some Berries, some fillers and some very random small flavors. So you can see as I'm making all these flowers. I really do not have any plans beforehand. But if you want, you can always refer to some beautiful pictures off lovers or whatever you are painting on , Plan out, list them out properly. And then even if you're not comfortable with lose painting, you can just use your sketches and then start painting for make your sketches and then start painting. So it's just all about what you are comfortable with. And now, since we need some base, are some stems or maybe some sticks where we want to place our Berries and fillers. So I'll just use our brown color on make such simple, very random sticks like these. Finally, I'm just gonna add a few feelers like this, which looked like buds, which will be used to add some off the spaces if required. 6. Painting Elements 2: So now that we're done with the flowers and are abstract backrooms, let's move on to leaves and foliage and far believes I'm using the radiant mixed with some fellow blue on some green, so it's completely your choice. Whatever you want to use, you can just play around with your colors and create some random strokes and creates beautiful leaves. And if you want, you can just go to my Pinterest board. I have listed it down in the about section of this class, where you can find inspiration for videos, leaves and foliage and other stuff that we're using this class in my Pinterest sports so you can just had a word to them and just have a look and get inspired and then create your stuff. Next, I'm gonna make some round leaves like we have in eucalyptus, and then I'll make some leaves, which are very long, just like in palm trees, and you can see that I'm being very loose with my strokes, and I'm not too much worried about the details and all because I'm making all those elements in a loose tile. The best thing that I like about digitizing my artwork is that I can play around with the elements as much as possible. I can use the same set of elements and multiple projects like, for example, I can use the same elements and greeting cards and reading invitation in making a read it sector. Apart from that, I can also play around with the colors. I can also make the changes to their shape size. It's extra, and if I'm not happy with any element, I can easily skip it out. I won't use it in any off my projects on. Just make sure that the elements that you're making are kept at a distance, which makes it easier to clean up the bag room on our book itself. Now that I'm done with the fully age flowers and the abstract backgrounds, I am going to make one or two banners, a bird on a squirrel. So for that I'm just going to use my pencil to make a light sketch and then I'll color them , since this is not all work together or ah, sketching class. So I'm not giving you the basics about how to sketch and color on these elements. You can always refer to the Pinterest fours are. There are many classes on skill share itself. How to make banners, how toe make loose florals, using watercolors and other mediums so you can always refer to those classes. So making two banners, one with pink color and another one with the green one just to have more options in case I want. Do you don't make different team are used them in different projects, so I will have more options in that case. So now I'm done with the banners. I am going to make a board and then a square and for the board, I'll start with the outline using the pink shade making a called feather shape. Maybe this is the easiest board that I always loved painting with watercolors that you confined in my instagram feed. I mean, it was the easiest one. I really love making such words. And then I like to drive for a while and I'll start off with the school and start with with brown color, making an almond shaped for the head on, making the same similar shape for the body. But in the opposite direction on Dhere comes detail. You can always get out if you're not comfortable with starting on with the brush directly. Just first, make a sketch and then cover them now, adding feed on ears and trust me, this is the first time painting a school like this, and I'm not sure whether it's gonna look like a square ill or not. But anyways, I'm gonna try my best to, you know, get the best results. And in further lessons, I'm gonna talk about how you can make tweaks to your traditional art. And you can also make some changes in the shape. So our size off your elements using just procreate, you don't need any other tool at all. So now we're ready with the elements. Let's jump over to a next radio in which I'll show you how a scan these art books and how I export them toe I parent than in procreate 7. Scan Settings: So now I'm going to talk about how I scan my artwork. Those scanner that I'm using is absent. We'd 39 which can scanner up to, I think, 4800 d p I, which is pretty high. But we don't need that high resolution. So I'm just going to open the software that comes with the scanner itself. Every scanner is different, so I'm just going to talk about the basic things that we need to keep in mind. So first thing is the resolution off your artwork. It depends on the type of project that you're walking on. It's highly recommended to use at least 300 db eyeing as a resolution for your work for such kind of projects. But it's completely your personal choice or the demand off your project. Whatever resolution you want to keep, you can just select from here and other settings. I really don't touch. Then I hit scan and get this pop up there. I can choose up full over. I won't do save all the files, so I'm just going to select us 300 BP I folder and hit OK, and the last thing is the image format so you can choose J. Peg are active. Normally. I used if because it's lost less file and the quality off the images are better than J pack . That's what I feel on. Another thing is Jay Peak files. If you open and close them a lot of times, they tend to lose their quality, and the files are much better than their lossless fights. And one more thing, the files. A little heavier. Then Jeff Backfire stood importing and exporting the files takes a little longer than she picks. That's the only thing. So now you can see that all the files are saved in the folder where which I selected in the software. So now that this character ready, I'm going toe, upload them toe dropbox, and then I'll show you how I import the files to procreate. 8. Import to Procreate: all right. So it's now time to import the files to procreate. So when you open procreate, you will see all the artworks in this former. It's a gallery off. You're all the world that you have done so far in procreate. And there are some options on the top to import the files from videos, sources I'll talk about later. So first of all, I'll just show you that I have dropbox up in my iPad like this. And all the files are saved there, as I showed in my last video. So now we have various methods by which we can transport our files to procreate. One is by going to Dropbox and exporting it directly to procreate. Another one as you can save it, an iPad in the camera rule. So I'm gonna show you both the methods and explain what's the difference between the two? So there are three darks on the top right corner. If you click on those, you will get this problem screen where you have this export option, and there you will get the same image and there is another option that is copy to procreate . We're going to use both of them. So I'm gonna select Save Image forced so that it saves the file in the camera rule and another oneness copy to procreate, which will directly take this particular file to procreate and open procreate app like this . And now you can see that we got this file in procreate in the same format as are scanned document Sonal. It's open this document and we want to check the properties off this document. So let's click on the range tool on top, left corner. This is the range tool and there you will have this canvas under that you will see canvas information when you open that you will get all the information about this canvas, the pixel dimensions, physical dimensions and DPR. You can see it's 300 b p I, which is what we require. So this is one of the ways off importing the file to procreate and other one is by going to gallery and flick on this import option on the top right corner. You will get all these options where you consider checked dropbox and select your file. This might take a while because the files are very heavy. So this matter off importing files to procreate is quite similar to the previous one in which it will directly take the file Inter format, or J back former whatever it is on with the same resolution and the same pixel dimensions radically to procreate so you can see the same information here. 300 db I and same size off the canvas. So these are the two methods that you can import your files to procreate. There is another matter that is using after important concede this photo option. We'll take you directly toe the camera, rule off iPad. So let's say I'll just goto my camera rule and select the last saved image which I saved from Dropbox. Now let's have a look at the information off this canvas and you would see the size off the canvas is same. Physical dimensions are also same, but the P I has come down toe to 64 from 300 which is not a very big difference, but still it matters, and most of the projects if there is a requirement off having at least 300 DP eyes. So if your project needs at least 300 bps resolutions, so it's not recommended using the pictures from a camera rolling knife. It's better to take your pictures directly from Dropbox are either go to Dropbox, export your file from Dropbox to appropriate are go to procreate and use import option in the gallery, an important file from Dropbox. 9. Selection Tool - Simple Elements: all right. So now that we have important this Karen files and procreate, let's start cleaning about artwork, the most important tool in cleaning the artwork in procreate, a selection tool. So first and first I'll just give a brief about the stool, and then we'll start leading up tart for so to go to selection tool to slick on the S symbol here on top left side. When you click on Selection Tool, you'll get some options below to make a selection in different forms like automatic, freehand rectangle and ellipse. So let's talk about all these options first so as to start with the Ellipse. So if I click on the lips, I can make a selection in a circular or ellipse shaped. Then I Let's say I selected a razor and raise the whole selection, or we can also make any changes to the selection. First, I'm going to just undo this action by tapping with two fingers because we don't want to erase that. And now I'm gonna just change the color off the background to something dark or maybe black so that when we are raising the white paper background, we can easily identify the changes that we are making. Now comes the rectangular selection tool. It's completely same as the Ellipse. But just that, though, shape is different. So when you select this, you can make the selection in square or rectangular shape and make your changes like so. So next comes to Freehand Tool, a surname suggests you can make this election with free hand and do whatever you want to do with that selection just like that. And finally, we have the automatic selection, which I used the most out of all the options because it provides the fastest way to work or large areas. Now the way the selection books is when you keep your pencil on your canvas anywhere, it will select the similar colors. And if you slide the pencils to the right or left, you can see the threshold that is changing on top, and it's gonna make the selection based on this threshold. So my suggestion is not to use this option on very light owns or when you're pieces are very, very small. Now, if I select the white background, you can see that it will select most of the elements because the colors that I've used and the artwork are very light. So that is the reason that I'm not recommending. Using automatic selection for such weeks is where the colors are light on the elements of it. It's more rather, I would suggest, for such pieces where the colors are quite transparent or the tones are very light, although elements are very small in size. In that case, I would recommend using FREEHAND selection to another thing I want to show you is involved in automatic selection. So let's say I just want this background and I wanted to lead all the other elements that are present on those cameras. So I made a selection using the automatic tools and I select involved, which involves the selection. And now I can just simply use a razor and it is all the selected area and you don't use that piece. So this is how we use selection tool to clean up the artwork. And now, in case you want to make some changes in colors, you are saturation. You can simply goto this magic one, which is the adjustments option and select hue saturation color balance our calls from here , for example, I just select hue, saturation and brightness option from here. And we get these lighters below here so we can make the changes. We can use the sliders and make your desire changes like this. Now that we have seen how the selection and adjustments are used, I'm going to speed up the video a little bit and clean up the artwork on this page. So first, I'm going to use the automatic selection to select the background and save my artwork as much as possible on then, using the Raisa, I'm gonna raise the white background. Next. I am going to use rectangle for this white portion and just clean of that, too, now that I have removed the major part off the paper background. But still, I can see some white dots near the edges off these colored bathrooms. To simplify this process, I will do one thing. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna select the automatic selection and then also like Bhutto large backrooms using the maximum threshold like so and I'm going to invite the selection. So I have bulldozed Bagram selected. I'm going to invite the selection and then I'll use the razor and raise those white dots very easily so you can see how we can toggle between different techniques and tools and make the work floor so simple. Honestly speaking, I rarely used for the shelf now for my projects, because with every new release, procreate is coming up with so many capabilities. I mean, I'm really happy to have invested in my iPad on procreate, and now that the area near the edges is clean, I'm going to select each element using freehand selection and then swipe down with three fingers and select cut and paste, which will paste each element on a separate layer. And that is how I placed all the elements on separately so we can use them in different projects on do you know, play around with them separately like we do and for the shop. And for now, I'm just going to keep these small or elements on one layer, and we'll separate the moat as required in future. I think once all the elements are pasted on the respective layers, we can delete the original air because we don't need it anymore. And one more thing I want to mention here is when we're walking on larger files are the fires with high resolution. The maximum number of flares is limited, so always keep that in mind and just keep your layers marching if required. Another thing is we're done with the first piece. Now we're going to move on to our next one, on which we have some florals which are little complex. So in the next video, I'm going to show you how I work on complex pieces like these. 10. Layer Mask - Complex Elements: all right. So in the previous video, I showed you how you can use automatic selection to remove the paper background from the elements with large areas are with high saturated color values. In this video, I'll show you how you can clean up the complex elements with lighter color values and complex shapes like this Rose Hill. So before moving on, I want to just show you what happens if I use automatic selection in this case. So let's say if I try to select an element using automatic selection, you can see that it selects almost everything. The reason being the colors are very light and close to the white bathroom. This is the reason I chose watercolors as an example for this class. So I can show you all the complexities that we may face in digitizing our artwork. And even if I make some changes in the brightness are saturation from adjustments panel. Still, you can see that I'm unable to make the right selection the way I want. So in that case, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna select a single element using FREEHAND selection tool like, for example, this rules. So I've done with three fingers cut and pasted or no separately. Er, I'm gonna hide the original air and change the color off the back room, toe black or any dark color. Now we can easily work on a single piece when my one and then clean up the white background off the paper. And now here, I'll show you how to use a layer mask for making the perfect selections. First, I'm going to rename this layer to rose, and when you click on this time nail here, you'll get some options. Just select mask, which will create a layer mask right on top off the rose layer. Now, to simplify this, this mask is basically a layer which will help us and revealing are hiding some portion off the layer below. So I'll choose a brush from the library, and I am going to choose studio pen from thinking as I feel the edges off. This pressure are perfect for the purpose off cleaning up our artwork. Now, if you select black color and make sure that you're on the mask clear and start painting on the rules, just double checking. If Armando right layer so you can see that it has started hiding the artwork. Or you can see raising the artwork Excell. And if I choose white color, it will reveal the art book it works. Otherwise, I'll show you that. Let's just hide it. Forced using the black color. Let's I just It really used that on DNA. Now, using white, it's revealing it again. So this is how masking works in procreate. This is the simple concept off master we do have in for the shop as well. So I think if you have ever worked with for the shop masking, you would be aware off while these concepts. So now we're going to use black color, and I'm going to erase all the white that is not required and another quick fix to a wide. All the hard work here is I'm going to paint with black on the edges off the rose only which will eventually separate out the rules from the white background. And after I'm done with that, I'll show you how we can is. So now that we have separated out the rose from the unwanted background, I will march the two layers that as the roeselaere and the mass clear by pinching with two fingers. And now, using the automatic selection tool, I'll select the white background only and raise the whole unwanted white like we did in the previous video. And, well, I am not going to remove this white here because I like it that way. But it's completely a personal joints if you want to remove or such ideological, always go ahead and start. So sometimes when we have removed all the Bagram, we still are left with some off the tiny dots like this. So I'm going going to use small razor and raise them manually. Or else you can also do one thing. You can use automatic selection and select your draws or flower whatever it is. And then in Ward this election and use the eraser to erase that. And now I'm going to speed up the video a little bit and clean up other elements using the same techniques. And now here is another complex flavor with tiny stamens on the top, which are really Dina. That is why this piece is gonna take a long time. But trust me, if you're thinking that the amount of work is too much and procreate it's gonna be same in any other program, like for the shop or any of the program that you might be using. Rather, I would say that working on procreate on such pieces is far easier because it's like you're working on paper with your pencil or pen. Not like you have to open the laptop and sit on the table with your Ben tablet or something like that. So it's not that complex. You can work anywhere you want do with this app, - and now we have all the elements cleaned up and our own separate layers. I'm just going to rename each layer. In the next video. I'll show you some off the techniques on how to make changes to your traditional art or fix mistakes that we sometimes make on paper. 11. Edit Artwork and Fix Mistakes: Alright, guys. So in the previous videos, we learned about how to remove paper background and clean up our artwork and put them on different layers. Now, in this video, I'm going to share a few more tips on how you can edit your artwork using different tools like war to let spectra on how we can also fix some mistakes that we sometimes make on paper. As you know, the traditional mediums are not always forgiving. So that's when you still does come in handy where we can fix our mistakes very easily. So I'm gonna show you all that stuff here. Now, looking at this can file if you may have noticed while painting I made a mistake, and that was I forgot to give hands to this beautiful squid ill. Um, I don't know how it happened, but anyways, I can actually show you how I'm going to fix this. But before moving on hands, I am going to make one more change in this. That is, I just wanted to make her body a little smaller as compared to head because as we know that cute characters, cute cartoon characters have their heads much larger in size as compared to their bodies. So forest al, just fix starting and then we'll move on to hat. But before making any such changes, make sure that you always have a backup. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna make a duplicate layer off the square layer and going to just lock it. Ondo, hide it so that in case I make any mistakes or mess up the art, I can always come back to this backup player and work on that again. So now we have taken a back up. We can work on this layer without worrying much on now I'm going to separate her head from the body using FREEHAND selection to I need to be very careful where the body and the head of touching each other because I don't want to cut the part off a body on, take it with the head. So that's the only thing that we need to take care of while we're using freehand selection . Now that I've selected the head, I'm going to swipe down with three fingers and cut and paste, which will pace the head on a separately. So we have are the head off the squirrel on a separate layer, and we can easily play around, make changes to the body or head whatever is quiet. So now I am going to the body layer on, going to make some changes, make it a little smaller. I think I need to separate although daily as well, so that I have more options to play around with. So I have the tail and head on separate layers, which gives me more freedom to play around and make changes as required. And as you can see that while I'm trying to resize the tail somehow, it's not fitting in. So now I'm going to use work to which can be found beneath when you have your aero selected . This is the work tool, so when you click on this, you will get this mesh kind off structure and you can just touch the notes, make changes, move them around, and if its electoral advanced mesh, it gives me more notes, which gives me more flexibility toe. Make the changes to the shape that a selector like I'm doing here. You can see that I'm just touching the nodes, moving them around and making the desired changes and now it looks perfect to me and now it's time to give her hands. So if I simply use a brush and paint the hands, that will not really give the right field, because we cannot get the water color texture that we got on paper with a digital brush. So now I'll show you how to get the right texture. So now let's start with taking the color that we want to paint with. So I'm just going to use the eye dropper to well earned, select the color from her body. So let's say will take the darker brown color and then select a brush on. Ideally, I should select a brush which doesnt have texture, so taking a brush, which is quite flat and which doesn't have a texture at all. So that will have mean achieving the right results, making a separate layer for the parents of that engaged I myself, anything. I have the bandwidth to make the changes later now making a copy off it by swiping down with three fingers, copy paste and taking it to the other side, flipping it horizontal to make another hand. And now we got her hands Now it's time to get the texture right. So for that, I'm going to use the clipping mask option. So first, I need to decide which color I'm going to use. Our I think I'm going to use the texture from her head. The Doc Brown won this one. So just taking free hand tooling, making a selection like this and copy and paste. So I just made a new layer with some off the texture Bees here, Ondas moving it towards the hands, keeping them on top off the hand like this. But before that, I need to make one more copy for the other hand. So I'll just duplicate this layer on, Bring it down, flip it on, bring it down on dub off the other because we need the clipping mask for each one of them. So we have two copies and not looking on the scum mail and flipping mosque. And now you can see that regard the right texture on the hand. Same thing I'm gonna do with those are the hand. So no, the squid Earless Ready? No, I'm going to march all these layers so that those Quirinal sits on one single layers So let's compare the two square meals here, the older one and this one and you can see it looks much better than before. So now we are all set without elements. Let's want to one next video in which I'll show you how you can create multiple projects with the same set off elements. 12. Sample Project-A simple wreath : Alright guys. So now we have cleaned up our elements and save them on separate layers. Let's use them and create a sample project for this class. I'm just going to make a very simple read, but you can create as many designs are projects as you want to. So first thing is we need a new canvas for a new project and the size and resolution depends on on your choice or the project. So let's say I'm going to use 2000 by 2000 pixel canvas. And since I was working on 300 GPS while choose a canvas which has 300 bps resolution, I've already made a canvas here. This one. So when do you this one just going to double check whether the resolution is 300? Yes, it does. So we're going to work on this campus now. Now that we have the cameras ready, let's bring the elements here. For that, I'll go to my original canvas where all the elements are kept on different layers. Andi, I'll open the layer panel here. You can select multiple layers by swiping them from left to right, just like I'm doing here and now once the layers are selected, simply drag them hit gallery, open the new canvas and release your selection here. Like so So this way. What happens is all the elements are popular on this canvas on the respective layers. And one more thing I want to mention here is which is important. Let's say I want the board to be large in size for my project, and I increase the size like this on the new campus. And if I don't win a little bit, I can see that it becomes hazy because the quality it has lost some off the quality. I hope you can see that on screen. Well, there is a quick fixed for this, and that is, if you go back to the original canvas on select or the element that you want to take in a larger size, I'll just duplicate this one. Let's say we want the board in a bigger size in the new cameras and then increase the size of the element on the original canvas and then copy and paste it on the new canvas like we did before. So now we got a bigger board, and if let's say well, just compare these two words, and I'll just increase the size of the smaller board and then we'll compare. So now, just increasing the size almost closed toe the bigger bird. Just trying to adjust the birds on the gang was because the side of the little birds are quite similar to the campus. So if you can see on screen, I don't know whether you can notice or not. If you look at the I, for example, the eye off the second bird above is quite crisp and has cleaner edges. This may not be quite visible on screen for you, but you can always try this on your iPod and see the difference yourself. All right, so now getting back to the retail just use the second board and make it little smaller because we don't need it that big. Andi, I'll just make a circle using the quick shape off tool that just came in procreating. The 4.2 words in just making a very random circling who lingered at the end. It will take the nearest possible, shaped like this, and then you can just use edit shape from the top and make changes to the sheep as required . Like this, it comes with a few notes that you can just move on and make the changes to your shape. And now it's time to place all the elements on this circle to make a beautiful read. Thank you. - So I think the reach is ready. Let's add some text in the center. I lose black color on the script brush, which I use most of the times well, right spring as that was a team off this class and we're done. 13. Create Mock-ups and Sell online: Welcome back. I'm so glad that we have covered so much and reach the last video of this class where I'm gonna talk about how you can use your oil artwork and create beautiful products on mark ups . Using just procreate, you hear a bunch off print on demand website on which you can upload your artwork on high resolution Onda or they can be applied to various products like marks below cases do. It covers the sharps spectra and you just own commission on each sale off your product. You just have to upload your artwork. Everything is taken care by the oh, these companies, you don't have to worry about shipping manufacturing anything like that. So, for example, this is an image which I found on, um, splash dot com, which provides royalty free images so you can get such images off for your artwork on various websites. Liken splash pixels dot com on go pick Sabih and many others on shatters talk. If you want to just pay for good images, you can also go go to them. I imported this image in procreate and you can see I just made this painting on a local cotton drag paper, and I got it scanned. And then I cleaned up the edges and then fixed it in the frame media, and you can see, like how beautiful it is looking. So this is one example. Another one I want to show you is this one. It was just a random abstract art. You can say I was just playing around with some off the colors like blues, greens and yellows and made some splotches like that and then got it scanned, brought it to procreate and cleaned up the background, using the same techniques that I explained before then I created this piece using clipping mosque, and it's available on my societies like shop. Well, this is how we can create some awesome products or artwork from our oil paintings. So I would recommend not to throw away our old paintings, which you don't really love, rather get them scan on and turned them into some awesome products. You never know which off your old pieces can turn into beautiful products 14. Project Brief & Final Thoughts : now coming over to the project for this class, all you have to do with create something on paper using your choice off traditional video, whether it be watercolors, whether it because our markers are anything like you work with, get it scan and bring it to procreate and create I'll finally bees out of it. You can also create seamless repeating patterns, using the same motives like you can see on the screen. I have another class on procreating, which I've explained that how you can create seamless repeating patterns using just procreate. I'm so excited to see your projects in this class. Please upload your project in the project gallery. Or you can also share the same on Instagram and tag me at the rig marked the shell. And you can also use hashtag marked the shell skill share. See you in my next class
