About This Class


Hi and welcome to my new Skillshare Class.

In this class I will teach you my easy way of creating fun Marker Brushes and with those unique brushes and Procreate default brushes we are going to create your own unique Texturized Magic Canvas together. You are free to follow my lead but I also encourage you to add in more details and marks and do some exploring of your own. The more you do that, the more unique your canvas will be. My class is only meant to get you started.

First we start with creating our own unique marker brushes.
Once we finished creating our own marker brushes we are going to build a canvas together, feel free to follow along or do some freestyling.

And of course we are going to explore what that canvas brings us by drawing a fun illustration together. Again you are free to follow along or create your own. I’m here just to guide for those who want me to.

Any Procreate experience would be great but we will do this step by step together if you want to.

This class is specially made for the Procreate user, so you will be needing an iPad with the app Procreate on it and a pressure sensitive stylus. 

I will not provide any brushes or canvasses for this class because this class is all about creating your unique brushes for it. And of course you are free to use any brush you already have in procreate but it would be fun if you used some of your own made brushes as well.

This is a class for procreate users who already have a bit of experience with the program, and a bit knowledge is very welcome because this is not a class about the program itself.

So join me in this class and let's create fun brushes, an awesome magical texturized canvas and have some drawing fun!

1. Intro: Hi, and welcome to my new Skillshare class. Funds with texture using Procreate. My name is Brenda Bucher. I'm an artist and teacher from the Netherlands. Today, I wanted to teach you so fun techniques on how to use texture to create lovely illustration that are more appealing to the eye. We will create brushes and textured canvases that will help to speed up your process in creating lovely illustrations with a lot of texture. For this course, I will not be providing any brushes or Canvas because it's part of this class to create those brushes and campuses yourself, you will have your own unique brushes entering, texturize it canvas to draw with. You can follow along with my process using only Procreate default brushes. But of course you are free to use any brush you like. First we will be starting with creating fun marks on the canvas. And from those marks we will create our own unique brushes. We're going to dive into the brush studio to see what the behavior of the brush does when you use different settings. When we're done creating those brushes, we're going to play it on the canvas and create some lovely textures that will be processed into our Canvas later on in this course, I will teach you how to do that step-by-step. I will also show you how easily you can get a lovely paper texture for your canvas. It will be looking like if you have drawn on real paper. And if we got all the layers we need, it's time to bring into magic to your Canvas. We will do this to get our step-by-step as well. And often we explored how to kind of first works and how the colors will behave. We can create a lovely illustration together and see how you're unique Canvas works for you. If you want to learn how to do that, I would like to see you in class. Let's get started. 2. Creating your own Unique Marker Brushes: We're going to start by creating our own Canvas. In order to do so will be only using Procreate native brushes. So everybody can join alone. Also, we're going to create some texture brushes together in order to get some fun textures into Canvas. Remember that every Canvas you will make this way will be your own unique Canvas. Um, well, every campus will be different. When I'm going to create a canvas. My latest Canvas was this canvas. It's got a lot of textures in it. And that was fairly lovely to create. I created this whole piece with only procreate brushes, but there were no hatch brushes in Procreate. So I created my own hedge brush. So that's what we're going to do in this class. This canvas is also different. Then another canvas I've created before, I've used different made brushes. I also use brushes for this one by other artists, but also you can find lots of free brushes online. Well, we're going to play and create our own. So it's for everybody. If you are starting with Procreate or if you have got a lot of brushes, you can use all those. But in case you haven't got a lot of brushes, we're going to make some of our own. The first thing we want to do is create a new canvas. For that. We're going through the plus. I want to come first from ten inch by an inch. So I haven't already here, but let's pretend if I don't and we have to start all the way from scratch. So I'm going to create a new canvas. I'm going to convert it to inches. I want ten inches by ten inches. And I want my DPI on 300. Now, I've got a large iPad Pro. So on this one I've got 204 layers, but the way I draw, that's not very hard to do. And I don't use a lot of layers, but for creating brushes, I'm creating a canvases. It's fairly, you can use up to seven or eight layers only for the textures alone. So it will be fairly convenient if you've got a lot of layers as well. I think if you have 40 layers or something like that, that will be good enough to go and otherwise there will be work routes. So if you've got this, we're going to create our new canvas is appearing at the top left corner. There. We've got our Canvas. This is my new canvas. As you can see, it's completely empty. I want my textures to have a lot of scratches and hatching and marks in it. So that's what I'm going to create by now. For instance, if I don't have this huge library of brushes, I lately count them. I've got over 300 brushes, which is actually very weird and you don't need all those brushes. But I'm learning also about brushes. Very well. Mostly I thought if I have debt brush, debt, I could paint just like the artist. But that's not true. It's like if you've got if you've got a great P&L, you don't suddenly play like Mozart or someone like that. We're going to be using our own brushes. And well, I'm mostly nowhere all those brushes are. Let's go my sketching brush and take the six B pencil. It's in the brush library under sketching, we can take the six B pencil. I will give some hatch marks. I will do it a little bit bigger. So I'm going to give it some stripes. I want them bigger, so I'm going to enlarge them later on, but for now I'm going to give it three marks like that, a couple of marks like that. That's very simple. Uniform and going to enlarge debts, It's a little bit bigger. And just make sure that it's approximately in the middle of your canvas and it's not cutting off the sides. Let me check if I'm safe Like this. Yes. Please don't do it except the same way I do because you're going to make your own brush, but these are the steps for this part. I'm going to do a three finger swipe down. Copy all. I'm going to create a new brush for debts. I'm going on top of my library. At the top you can hit a plus. So that's my new sets and I'm going to call it. I've got a set here for breakfast. So I'm going to make a new SAT like textures. And it is appear to me, textures. I gave it because it's a different one. I'm given a one. So now I can create a new brush by going to this plus sign here, I got a totally new brush. I want the shape. That's the shape of what the brush will do. There I go by Edit, Import, Paste. This is the one I drew, but when I leave it like this, it will produce a black stamp with a white lines and I want it inverted. So I do a two fingertip and I would invert it and now I clicked on. Now I have a brush with all of these marks. But I'm going to my stroke both to keep giving them a little bit more space. So I won't I'm a little bit outside of each other. I'm going to enlarge it a little bit because I can't see very well. Let's go by here and go to the Stroke Path again. What will be a nice way? Let's clear it. It's what is it like with this? I think it's totally too much inside of Jupiter. And it doesn't work and we do a three-finger swipe. It's still too much. We'll be playing a little bit with the settings and how far they are from each other. But now they're stamping it all the way to same and I don't want it, so I'm going to play with it. For that. I will go to my jitter that's right here. And you can see, you can play a little bit with it a little bit. You can play the amount you would like for your brush. I also go back to my shape and I want them to rotate a bit so there will be a little bit of sight of each other and maybe the counts then you can see this is one stem. Here. They do a lot of strokes and they make him more intense. So that's what you're gonna play with. You can see how that affects the stroke both. So let me check how this works now. I think it's still much in the same way, so let me play with that. Yes, that's where it's getting a little bit messier. We can play with that. Yes. Let me see what this does on a new canvas. I've already got one brush, we're going to name them later. Let me see. Always keep your stamps aside from a new canvas. I'm going to duplicate this canvas or create a new one, but this is way quicker, way faster. I clear this one. And now I can test my brush. I like it already. We can play a little bit with this one. Maybe I want them to be with a thicker pencil as well. What maybe you can use this also, because in a drawing this will be fun. For a lot of textures. It's very easy brush. This is just a plague, Memphis. So let me duplicate this brush because now I already have a lot of settings. I just can't change the shape to get a new brush. So what if I go back to my shape canvas with my trials on it? And let's make these one invisible by touching square and creating your canvas on top. For dead layer, I will use my what do we have? Also a charcoal. When we go to charcoals, we have thicker. What one? 6-bit compressed. I think that will be funny. So what if we do the same thing with a charcoal brush? Not a lot of pressure. Just some soft touches. Same share. I will be using the same shape. Approximately. I think I didn't do the stroke soft enough. So swish, swish, swish, swish, swish. I don't like the length of it. It's outside of the canvas like this. This will be a soft touch. Let's copy. Remember we made the new brush by duplicating him going into the duplicates and we change only the shape. So go to Edit, Import and paste. Now you see every step it remembered from the one before. So let's click done and let us see what it does. The other canvas, like this new brush, softer hatch. I can play it a little bit with that. We can change a variety of sizes and shapes. Well, this is fun. I think I liked the textures and size of charcoal brush, so I will be using that for the next brush. I'm going to duplicate this one again. Let me see what I can do for shape now. I'm going to create a new layer. And let me play a little bit with another hedge, sketch. Know that's the same brush, go back. It will be easy if I put those in the same one. So let me duplicate this one. It was from charcoals. Let me duplicate this one. There will be easy. Let's put this in the texture one brush so I can easily go over to the next one. I think, yes, I've got it here now. It will be easy to go to. For now. Let's do a little scratch like that. So just a simple fun shape. Maybe Sandra it a little bit more. What if we've got this texture copy all? And how does it work? Go to this one. You notice this is the copy, shape. Import, paste, all the settings. We'll see now you'll have a different hatch and that's very lovely to see. Let me see what that does. All the other Canvas. I think this is awesome. I think I would really like this one. Software you touch it, you can play with that as well. Software you touch it, the software, those will be the harder your brush. You can play with that, also with your settings in the brush. For instance, what if I want to give it a bigger size when I do a little bit more pressure. Let me see. Where is it? The pressure then we can add the pressure and the size like little tips on it. Let me check. Smaller and bigger. See this one is lighter and smaller and this one is a lot bigger and darker. So you can play with everything in your brushes. While this is not a class about brush making, but it's a fun way to create new brushes with textures that are unique and of your own. So I create a new one. Like what if I would love? Yes, for instance, I'm going to save this one. Great new one. Just go back to my six be compressed because I liked it in my drawings. So just some couple of randomly marked stripes. Copy all created in the new brush? No. I don't want a new brush. I want a copy to one. So delete this brush. Duplicated. Want again. I will play with the shapes. Edit, Import, Paste. That's my new one. It's done. Now this is fun. Let me see what that does. This is also a fun texture. Now you can see these are randomly placed. But what if I don't want it? I want them consistent? Well, we can change those settings specs or you can create the new one. But the settings is very easy. Don't get the jitter. Rotation schedule. Let me see what that does. The count is thinking I think the count is still own. Yes. Spacing could be a little bit off because these two are together so we can play a little bit with the spacing. I think this will be grades. Now you have a lot of hatching and scratching brushes you can use in your textures. You can play along. You can make as many shapes as you like. Maybe we'll doing one more. Duplicating this one. Go back to my shapes and sources. What about let's go back to the sixth week compressed and make some marks. Like so. Those are lovely marks and copy creates a duplicate of the brush. Go to the Shape, Edit, Import, Paste. Let me see what that does do. I like the spacing. How does it behave itself? This could be fun. Well, you can make as many marks as you like. So that's how you can create some lovely textures for your brushes. But you can also use Procreate natives, like for instance, to her arch brush. I like very much It's in painting. No, in artistic hertz brush. I'm going to go into duplicate this as well. More of it. My folder. There it is. I also like thoroughly, I think you can you can play and look for yourself or let me go to claims, oil plumes, palimpsest. I don't know what it's called. Like that one too. Let's duplicate it and bring it up to the textures as well. Let's Play, and now we're going to finally create our canvas. Let's clear this out. Deletes. Clear. This is our standard ten by ten inch canvas. 3. Creating the Marked Paper Sheets for your Canvas: Notice we've created lovely piece of market brushes and I hope you made some more of your own. Now, let's go and play with a new canvas. What I'm going to do is just make with the PECC brush this one I like very much. I'm going to make some marks. I will use them very small and I'm going to play with it. There will be a lot of trial and errors for debts. This, but yes, you want your own unique Canvas so you can play to your own liking. What I normally do is just go and scribble around a ***** for this one. This is the one where it's good, bigger and software. I don't want to I do want a bigger one. I think my size does my ten by ten inch canvas. My size is approximately 1314. I'm going to play with a lot of head sheesh. Now you think this will be too much and just Studies. I'm going to play with it. Fun thing is, this wouldn't be lovely when you see this in your drawing. Backgrounds. Watch and learn how we're going to play with this texture. This is what I'm going to do. I'm going to my eraser with the same brush by pressing and holding it will go into the eraser brush. Then I make my size very big. And then I'm going to erase with the texture the same texture. Then you will see the marks still feasible, but not, not all as much. And very light. You can play with this as much as you like. So if you think I can't see, still can see some hutches. But I don't see that the pattern as well from how I how I drew those hatches, then we can play with it. What I'm going to do now is that I can take a JPEG out of this one. So I share as JPEG, import it to my camera roll. So I saved this one. Let's create a new layer on top for my next one. What, for instance, if I like pencil scratches or pen scratches in my drawing, this will be fun as well. So I go to my six B for brush on sketching with its six. Yes, my six B pencil. I think that's very big and just want some scratches. Lot of hard pressure, soft pressure, just make scratches just to your own liking. And also in the part I'm going to erase a bit, but I cannot quite easily erase with the same texture. So I'm going to search for something a little bit bigger. What about the six be compressed? I can erase some things, make them less heart. Something I would like to see in my drawing. Remember, we can always play with the opacity later on when you're creating your Canvas. I think this looks lovely. So I'm going to create a JPEG out of that as well. Save it to my camera roll. Now I already have two layers. I'm going to create a new one on top. And I want an overall kind of most noise effects. And that's why I'm going to not elements materials stair is the noise brush. We can play along with textures as well. So let's create lovely shush. We can play with textures like this as well. Maybe a little bit. We can erase also, so that's not too much in your face. Same brush. Also a thicker one. I'm going to lower the opacity because I still want them there. I want a little bit more control of what I can see. I hope you can still see this. I see on camera It's very smudgy. That's from a faraway distance. Doesn't have to be the same thickness. That's okay. Make sure you don't get an easy to look better. Now looking through the camera when I'm doing this, I feel like a surgeon now with microscopic thing. I'm not looking straight at the canvas. This is a bit dark or dark area. You know what I'm trying to say? You look from a distance. You can also zoom out and there you can see the parts that are very in your face. Take your time to do this to your, to your liking. I also noted, noted by now, I'm going to save the image as well. I'm also going to create another one. And maybe I will do some splashes. And if we maybe with a spray paint, there will be lovely split. Maybe what would we like? Maybe to flicks will be lovely. That's also a native brushes for Procreate. Let's to be also too much, but we can play with it. We can play with everything. Same brush, bigger, erase some parts. Play with the size. And again, we can play with your opacity later. I think this is also fun. Let's get a JPEG out of that as well. I've gotten a lot of textures now and I want to incorporate them within my new canvas I'm going to create. But I don't have a paper texture yet. And I would love to see if my drawings are made on actual paper more than two smooth and ditched list. And that's why I'm going to get me a paper texture. 4. Creating the Paper Texture Sheets for your Canvas: For my paper texture, I go to the website Unsplash. There are all images you can use freely. I want to see some paper textures and I loved the pulpy paper. Let me see. Well, I already did my research. I always look for free paper. And this is the one I really like. It's by PB hub, so always give them credits. If I tap on it, you can see some lovely marks in it. And that's what I love. This one is too much, but we can play with that. That's why we've got Procreate and I will show you how to get rid of them easily. So I'm downloading it for free download. And here you can see you if your download ready. I will use them to my a photo camera, camera roll. That's easy. That's how I'm getting in into Procreate as well. Now I'm ready to create my new canvas. So I've got a lot of texture layers here show that we created. And I've got my puppy paper texture that's saved in my camera roll. Let's create a new canvas. I'm going to create. We've already created one, so you can look by the ten by ten inch. First, I'm going to get in the pulpy paper texture. I'm going to the wrench to go into, Add, insert a photo and I will take this photo. And you'll see it's not the right size because it's a rectangle shape and my canvas is square. I mostly use square because I draw only for Instagram purposes. Mostly done. I'm going to stretch this a little bit. I can make this bigger, but I can also stretch it. If you've got a pattern, you can not stretch it, but this one is okay to stretch. And I want to keep as many as I can in the picture. So I'm going to distortion. And I'm going to get it right here. And also here, make it a little bit bigger. So I am sure. Welcome effort at all sides. No. I don't like this market. That's too much in my face. I think when you use the same canvas over and over, you can see that too much. You don't want to have those in. But we have a frontal for that. And that's the clone tool. So you go to your magic ones, go to clone. Here you can see the piece of paper I wanted to go there. Make sure you have a great brush. I will be using, I think. Let's see what the six be compressed does. Yes. Now, I copied the fibers that we're here onto that spot so you can get rid of all the marks that were way too visible. You can also tap down just sold. I will be there, but not as much anymore. That's how you easily got rid of the marketing shoot out like. But this layer now is a little bit and I want him to be as great as possible. So I'm going to use saturation and brightness. Go to my saturation and turn it into gray. Now I have two lovely color for that. I'm going to duplicate this one, change the top one to multiply the one below to color burn. Now this is way too visible, but we can always play with opacity. So what if we have its own 50%? Something like that? Let me see. It looks like paper now, but not too much in your face. This is my paper texture for my canvas. I'm going to group these together by swiping to the right. Now you can see group, tap on group. Rename it for paper texture. Writing it down. Writing me the wrong way. Paper texture and smoke flattened this one. 5. Continue Creating the actual Magic for your Canvas: Now it's important to get in all the layers we've made copies from. So I'm going to add in, insert a photo, go to your photos section. Import all the campuses fits to size, Fit to Canvas easily. These are my head says. I'm also going to rename them so I can know what those were. I'm getting this below the paper texture. You'll see now it immediately darkens, detects chair because the multiply and the Color Burn layers are going to darken the layers below. Well, let's create another one. Insert a photo, do the hatches as scratches Fit to Canvas. At another one. Denoise Fit to Canvas. I forgot to name that one. What is the noise brush? These were scratches. Just scratches. Noise still wanted to go. The flicks Fit to Canvas, rename Flix. Now I've got a lot of textures as well as the paper texture. What I mostly do is change the background color because then I can see what those textures will do on the layers below. You can't see everything right now because I've got white backgrounds and that's what I wanted. I tried these without the white background. So for instance, if I went to my other Canvas where I have all this below and I got rid of the background. When I use that on a white background, it's perfect, but when I use it on a light pink or light yellow one, the textures will be appearing in gray and I don't know why I'm not a layering expert. I'm not a blend mode expert, but I tried an airport and that's why I made copies of it all with the white background. In all of this. Let me turn off all those layers so we only have the first layer with the scratches. And let me see what a blend mode does. Mostly I go to Color Burn. Background is way too dark now. Yes. Do I want it red to blue? Little bit blue. Let me play with the opacity of it. So I just want some markings and touches. Then I think maybe I did my scratches a little too small. Well, I can play with that. Later on. I will go continuing. And you see I also make mistakes, but you can see my clean-up after two afterwards. I think I'm going to continue with this. Copy the whole canvas and from the copied Canvas that will have all the layers in it. I can maybe resize this a little bit, so I'm going to enlarge the scratches mostly depending on the size of drawing you will make. So let's continue with this one, maybe a little bit more like this. Continue to create a new layer. For this one. I want to be darken them. I'm going to set this also to color burn. You see how it instantly shows up as markings in your drawing. I would love that very much. I'm going to duplicate this first because I'm going to do some other things with it. The first one, I'm going to change the opacity a bit so it still will be there but not too much away. Let's enough to get rid of this one because then I can see what I'm doing. Just some light scratches, but 37% is enough for me to see those lines scratches. You can also see the paper texture. If I zoom in, you can see now the paper texture and those little hedges are in there. So there are going to be a lot of marks. I did this one also, That's a duplicate, but I'm going to make this feasible, but now they're at the same shapes and size. What it can easily do is change them by rotate them quartz, so I have a new, new lines on different places very easily. You can also create new lines, thicker lines or anything you like. But just for the sake of this tutorial, let me see what we can do with that. But because we can also make those layers appear very differently. What about if we get some scratches out of debt? Will be brighter and lighter. Difference is fun. I like to divide one. The bar gives you a more of a lighter look, so it's scratched off of the paper. So now we have three layers at work. We have to hatch us. You see the darker spots here. We have to scratch us. Those are darker lines and we have the scratches on divide. And those are the lighter marks, but sometimes they could be very annoying. So you can also play with the opacity a little bit. Just enough so it's feasible. 54%. I guess that's fun for me to play with. And because I rotate it a quarter, it will be on other sites then the layer before it was. So that's an easy one. Let's go to the Noise brush. Let's play with that one. Make it feasible first. Then let's see what it does. When it's on multiply. Darkens. That's lovely. Weekend. See what they all do. Dark and doesn't do anything. Color Burn is way in your face, but you can change what the opacity, but it's not what I'm looking for. I want him to be lighter to give them softer texture and I wanted it to be see-through. Overlay in black doesn't work. It works, but I want him maybe I'm also wanting it to be like divide one. Not as much. This will be lovely, I guess. Maybe we can play with the size of its enlarging and do it later. And let me see what the flex does. The last one for now. Want to darken a little bit of specs in there. You have a little bit of those flicks in here. But it can be too much for you, so you can play with the opacity as well. We have more. Let me see. I multiply Color, Burn, Color, Burn color, brand would be lovely, just not as hard. Maybe 13%. Again for you, It's all depends on what you're doing with it. Well, I've got some textures done now. Scratches light, this, light scratches. So I'm going to rename them up again a little bit. Here it is. Lighten. Lightened, scratches. Perfect English word. I don't know. For me, it's easy to see what, what layer is what. I'm going to group these altogether now and fold them together. So now I have only two pieces of paper grouped ears as well. This will be my canvas. Textures. I can get fold of these two. So now I have only one layer which can, which is completing with my total campus. I was thinking I did resign. I want to resize my my hedge brush for debts. I'm going to duplicate the layer. If I don't like it, I always have the original one. Let's get into the hatches and play with it a little more. I will have it all the way feasible. What if I enlarge the hitches? Not too much. I'd be like so maybe not as feasible. Just less softer touch. We have this altogether. Let's play with discovering how it works. 6. Exploring your Canvas with Brushes and Colors: In order to see if it works for you, you can play with the colors you will be using. Mostly. For me, I love the dark blue backgrounds because you can create a night scene or a fairy tale or something like that. And let's see what all the colors we'll do. You see that in the lighter shades, the darker marks won't be feasible as much, but you see the lighter scratches will still be there. And if you darken depending office, the scratches won't be feasible. And if you're dark completely somewhere around here, you won't see much of them. I think this is lovely. Now. You can also, for this canvas you'll be using like for instance, if you think this is a lovely color, but I don't like the wild scratches there are too much then go to your layers again. That's why you can call them the light and scratches and you can play with the opacity of that. So I hope it's still feasible what I'm doing. So this will be totally feasible, but way too much in your face. Make the opacity a little less like 29 perhaps, then this will be lovely. So now we've got a lot of textures created into Canvas. That's very easy when you do a lot of drawings and you want the same vibe in those drawings. But make sure your pelvis is a little bit blend out. So if you have a darker spots here and the lightest spot there, that's okay. But sometimes it could be annoying when you see the same hatches and scratches everywhere. Make sure you don't have debts. You can also play within the layers. Like for instance, if you want something like this gone, you can clone it like we did before. Also, you can just easily rotate your canvas. So does the different spots are at different places Is won't be feasible to the one who's seeing your painting will see if you are using those textures, cancers, over and over. Most people will not recognize that. The fun thing is now that you've created love textures in your Canvas, you won't be needing as much textures in your drawing. So this will be an easy way to speed up your drawings. Like for instance, I would love to create a kits to crazy kids. I love crazy gets going for me. My to go to color is darker blue one or maybe a gray one. I think for now I use the gray one. And let's create always draw underneath your Techstars, just do your textures. We'll need to stay on top. I'm annoyed by this one. It's much easier in my layers panel to see. You can use a lot of different brushes. You know, I told you I've got hundreds and hundreds of sets of those brushes. But remember procreate also have lovely brushes. For instance, check all your brushes on this canvas. See what it does. For me. I like inker very much, so I go to my whites. Let's see what that does. It's lovely. Texture brush and I like it very much. Now, you won't see a lot of textures because the blend modes are two, set to color burn and Color Burn, only used to call it below. So when there's no color, you won't see it. So I normally won't be using white a lot. Only when I need a true white. I'm going to a little Bish. Then you can certainly see more textures going on. So the more you have few color here, the more you will see your textures. That will be fun. I think. So. I think my to go to color for this one a little bit more brownish. Brownish, brownish, brownish, beige. I think this will be lovely, little less. I will keep that color. I'm going to use my income and go on to duplicate it. I'm going to bring it to my texture brush as well. I also the type Tyler soon thylacine, is that a name? This is one fun part. Duplicate it and bring it up all the way. Your textures. What do I use? All brushes you like, but I'm working now with Procreate native brushes. I also like to sticks but I don't know where to Sticks. We're I will see yes, this one is also one I like, so I'm going to duplicate it. Get it into the texture said you can duplicate from same sets and use them at once. Oberon, a nice one. That's also a lovely drawing. Yes. I also had the appropriate as lots of lovely brushes, so check them out and use them. You can also use them as texture brushes. Like for instance, if you go to your artistic sets, I like the Hertz brush very much. I'm going to duplicate that one. Came up. And it also wants to all Beach one. I'm going to duplicate that as well. The Herge brush. You can see now I've selected and I'm going to bring them up to my texture. Now I've got to play with. Here, I got the marker brushes I'll be using. Let's play and have some fun before you start and you can play along the way, but make sure you create a new palette. I'm making the plus sign create new pellets. And it will appear all the way at the top. And I will be creating my color here. So I will keep saving debts. And mostly I turned to my disk and then I can search for some colors. Mostly I also do a black and white so it can easily tap to them and do them always add right for me, that's very convenient. But let's try to create some textures I also would love in my drawing. So I absolutely brown. Yes. I want them to be with my inker brush because that's my to-go brush for drawing. You see how lovely textures will be appearing. Still adds the darker textures as well. If I'm going back to my backgrounds and change my background into white, you can still see the markings on the colored layers, but you can only see the white pulpy paper. But I think my white paper also has a lot of fibers and I don't like that, so I'm going to change that a little bit too for that part, going back into your layers until your paper textures and my multiply layer can be set a little lower. I want them to still to be feasible, but not as much as they were. Yes. No, I like it. Change my background color again. When I do my gray. Yes, I would love to do the gray. So your B testing the colors you want to use as much as possible. I'm checking now color for his cheeks, rosy cheeks. I'm going to save that one. Well, it's just mostly when I'm going to draw, I don't have a perfect blend, so you just see me messing around a lot. Let's get this folded back into getter is folded back into getter like this. And let's clear this area and now let's make some drawings. 7. Start drawing a Simple Cat and the first layers of Texture : Remember for your drawings, always stay on the layer below. Well, for the sake of the video, I will be going to draw a sketch first. Mostly don't do that a lot when I drop it because cats are so lovely with a simple shape. My God will be having a couple of ears, body, a tail, some false. Maybe some feet, devil becoming from his side. For me, this, this is GOT, everybody can see what a cat is like. This got safe some eyes, nose, and mouth. Sometimes they're grumpy kits. For instance, like this is my sketch, not too hard. You know, be my now my classes. I'm a little bit messy with my drawings, but what I like, I think that's where it will give them more character. Mostly I don't do the sketch and I go directly into my painting of the whole cats with my ink. Birth we have Procreate, so there's always undo. We don't have to fear of a blank canvas. I'm going to my inker brush. Big size about 40%. I'm going to do the shape of the kids in one blobby shape. I'm going to color it just roughly. If I have some open textures in it, I will leave it there. But remember, if you do a clipping mask later on, I will tell you it won't be feasible if you don't have to color underneath covered. So you see I have little open gaps and I liked that. So if you don't like that, make sure you've got it all covered. You can do with drop fill whatever you want. I'm going to do the ear straight on top of that. Also in the whole body. The pulse are coming in front of the cat. So I'm going to reduce the opacity a little bit so I can see where to pulse are coming, creating a new layer on top. Just some symbol sticks. It goes, I like simple. Some pulse. Don't have to be even. I like it when they're not correctly done. I wanted to have it till behind to get underneath the cuts. You always draw from back to front. So the tail is coming from behind the gut, but it's going in front of the Gettier, but it will stay in front of the gap, not drawn in front of it pulse or his body. So I can do it on this layer. Such an easy till. Now, I'm going to change the opacity full back again. First of all, I'm going to group this one. Now I can change the whole cat to a place I want him to be in the Canvas, gets rid of the sketch. It's annoying me. Now. I want to give it a little bit more shadow for me, this is my shadow side. My son is coming from upright. Let's get a layer on top of the body and make it into a clipping mask. A clipping mask, you can see the little arrow is directing to the one below. I can make as many clipping mask as possible, but they all referring to the picture below. When I'm going to create a shared are mostly, I'm going to a little bit darker and a little bit more cool. Downwards to the cooler colors. A huge size and maybe not as hard in the opacity because I can always do more. I think this is still too warm. Let me check the go. Something grayish. Yes, I like that. It's warmer than this gray but not too much gray. And I think you can already see difference between the pulse and the left side of his body. I will do the same steps and the same colors. On any layer above. I have to same textures and shame feeling on every piece of it. I create this to a clipping mask as well. And also on it's still a clipping mask. Now I'm going to duty. Till here it will be a little darker and make them a little bit smaller because my tail is smaller. I'm going to do the underside of the tail because that's what shadow is. There. You can see also a little bit of shadow coming now. And I will do that also on his boss. So I go to the layer on top of his boss, but then you can suddenly see no difference because it's the same color. So don't be scared about that. It will work its way out later. Because this is only the first layer. Then we're going to repeat that. So go back to the cuts, the clipping mask on top of the gut, make it a little bit darker. Let's see what that does. Make sure you don't get its two blended in. And now, when you do the next to the policy, you can see the difference again. Play with the colors. A little bit of blending onto till already, but I'm not on the correct layer, so it wasn't feasible. Fun part about the Hertz brush instead of darken. So that's when you tap on it again. I will leave the side of it posts like this. The lower parts of a false little darker. But now it's getting a way against the background, so I make sure that it will be a little bit dark and it's even more. Also do this on the tail parts. My typical dabbing. You get a lot of texture in your objects. This can be a little bit darker, again, bigger. You can play a lot with the colors. You can also blend it a little bit, but make sure you keep you here. What I'm doing is having a dabbing. You will keep the textures alive. If you go into start smashing it, you will be losing the textures right away. I think this will be lovely as my career, maybe I can change in lending some more colors here. Little bit. Well, let's continue with some fun shapes on top, we can create more texture, but I want to do that later. 8. Adding Details and more Textures: I'm going to on top of that to create his eyes. For that one, I want white I want white ice. To my six be compressed. Little smaller size. Going to get very round eyes. Because I want it to be funny cuts. This is one, mostly for me. It's hard to draw the same one again, so I'm copying this one and put it here. We get approximately the same shape, same high as you can in mirror imaged debts, or you can play with it. If you satisfy it. Keep a layer on top, go to your black. Make an IV or smaller. I think he would get something on top. Office hits. A little sparkle in his eye as well. It will be funny already. He's gonna get some rosy cheeks. You know, I promised you that already, maybe. And remember the noise brush we use that will be lovely because it's very soft. Materials, yes. Small size. A little bit. Although debts on different layers. I'm going to give him some excellence. Sketching just with six B pencil is good enough for that. Maybe I will just duplicate it as well and bring it straight up to my pencils. Wait for it to darken. There. I will be using my black small nose like a little triangle. These very grumpy about it. So this will be my funny cuts. Little whites on his nose. The pink areas. I also want to have it in his ear. So I go back to the same color, pink, going back to my inker brush. You see you don't need a lot of brushes to get a lovely painting now with a lot of texture already in it. I go to my kids making a clipping mask as well. I'm going to make it on top of the textures. Do I want to get now? I want to get below, and why do I want to get below? Because I want this one on top maybe, but I can always change that later. So let's color it. Does in do I want it? Now I did it on the same layer. I'm such a dummy. Sometimes go back and do it on this layer. I was thinking I can't see the colors coming through. That. That was correct. Yeah, I think I want to stay it's below because this one is also in the shadow and the textures will stay on top also in the ear. So that's why I'm going to leave it like this. Now I want to play some more with disbarred here because I want this one to be more blended so I can choose the perfect color. From here. I will be using debts. False. With my what will I use? Hurt brushed, I did use just to blend it a little bit more so you can see the heart edges where the poles begin and where they end. I think that's looked lovely. For the fun part, I wanted to create some hairs, loose hair strands. So I'm going back to the color I used before. Luckily, I saved it because it's out of my history. I'm going to use that with the six B pencil. Maybe look a bit bigger. Some funny ears. I have to go to the body of the cat for that. Also. A little bit on top office ears. Let me go on top of this one. I want to draw on top. Maybe you can't see it. These hairs on top a little bit more. Maybe I want some darker ones as well on this side. Then you'll get more fair. I also want to have a little nails. I will do that on the same layer as nostrils. Do you sound it like nostrils? I don't know. I think he looks funny like this. He's missing a shadow underneath and I think that's very important. So I got all the way down. And I'm going to create shadow. Like mostly I will do it with black, but I can change it later. Let me see. We didn't have didn't do a lot of textures. That's okay. We can always do that. We can know what the opacity look what it does there. Yes, and I think this one is too much shadow here, so I couldn't erase with the same brush. Mostly erased with the same brush. That's way more natural. It will be lovely if you can see till is coming a little bit upwards so we can create shadow underneath there as well, but loose. From the tail. Smaller. You can see it's way more up in the air. I think that's lovely. Maybe a little less feasible. So erase it a little bit. Because when he's uplifting it to share the lobbyist heart. Just a little bit. Well, let's play with some more texture markers. We recreate it. I will do that almost at the top. If I'm doing it on the cat alone, it will be in the group of the kids. And if I do it with the whole surrounding, then I will do it on top of everything. So almost directly under the textures, I will put this on overlay. I know most my marketing's with black because black overlay motors will darken every color underneath it. Let's go and play with some textures. So for instance, we made this lovely script brush. We made some scratches and etches already in here, but we can play with the brush itself, like give it some more texture. It's lovely when it's going a little bit outside because it defines more messy painting. If you do it. Every now and then, it will look like the cat is also having a lot of color variation. And we can always erase, go back to the same brush. Erase the parts that were outside, but mostly also erase with the same brush or you don't get hard edges. This one has to be gone. You see what texture immediately change your drawing. I think textures are very important in you can play with the opacity. So smaller and harder textures as well. Erase with the same brush. We can create some fun market. So I will do mostly my different marketing's on different layers as well. Because then I can play and delete and edit and whatever. These are too hard here. So maybe I'll go change the opacity of debt side. I think here they are lovely because this color is lighter. So I'm going to lower the opacity on this side. Erase what's too many outside of it. Let's see a new marker overlay as well. This one was also very lovely. Let me see what that does. This one is too much outsides. You can see a lot of different markers and texture in this drawing. But now what does he need on top of his head? We have to think about that. 9. Drawing a tiny Mouse: I think he needs a lovely mouth. I think he will need a brownish mouth. Let's get on top of debts. What brush will I use? The Inca is too large for that now I can do it. Let me try. I'm not good at meiosis, but we can do it away bigger. Arish, snout is just an indication and illusion of a mouse. So I'm pleased with that little white. He has got a little, this is what I'm doing all on one layer. So mouse had a little bit of pinkish ears as well. Blooms all does. Let me check. Maybe that we'll be doing on a clipping mask on top of that, a good idea to do it on a clipping mask so we won't be going too much out of sight outside of his body. Same color. New layer. I'm going to create one here and one arm there. Some false. Of course, he's got a little pinkish. My mouse, it will have more shadow. I can zoom in a little bit more. I'm going to discolored, darkened it again using what we let you do it with this brush it, I like this brush. For the shadows. I will go into the mouse, do another clipping mask on top of that with something harder and cooler color creates the mouse. You see the arm I did here. So it's a little bit bigger than I thought because I couldn't see it. I was too lazy to erase the mouse a little bit or make it less visible here I can see I went outside so I'm going to erase that part. Clean up my mess. The mouse again. Now I can see its little Paul better because you have to texture and shadows. Maybe decided that also a little darker edge brushes on the side of this arm out, it's on a different layer. Create a clipping mask on top of that. Also under his feet and a little bit more shadow. When I do some shadow, I will also doing some highlights. So go back to the original color, make them a little bit warmer and a little bit lighter. I will be doing the same. So I'm going over this again. Am I on the body's layer here? So here it will be some live sketching, maybe even brighter. Drawing. It's just a matter of light and dark. Get some things to life. Going into his arms and feet? Again, yes. Also a little bit of shadow on it until you see now the mouse is coming to live because of the light and dark. Wasn't perfectly drawn. I can see where I was going too fast. So also for that part, I want a shadow and the highlight. So I'm going to add a clipping mask for the tail. I'm going to darken it again. A little darker. On the same brush. I want my hedge brush. I think I liked this one. Funny how, how they turn out. Maybe even better sometimes they thought before a little bit more. Purplish. The original color. Light again. 10. Final thoughts: So with the finishing of this mouse, we came to the end of the class. So here's my results. And I hope you liked it. Thank you for watching this class until the very end. I hope I have given you enough information so you can create your own texturize Magic Canvas yourself. Feel free to use any brush you would like. But I just wanted to show you in this class how you can easily do it with only the Procreate default brushes. Keep on creating different kinds of textures. What about blobs or paint marks or, well, you name it and you can create a texture out of it. This way. You can create your own liking. So it's up to your own imagination. I hope you liked this class. Please do share your project in the projects and resources section of this class. Because I, and maybe a lot of other students want to see what you created from this class. This was just a fun and easy glass on how you can create different textures already pre-made into Canvas with your own brushes and your own imagination. It's an easy way to speed up your process. You can easily create a series of illustration with the same side. So thank you for watching until the very end and have fun. Please do leave a review from this class. So I, myself and everybody else can see what you think of this class. Thank you very much for joining and see you in the next class.
