About This Class

Learn how to draw a stylized floral illustration in Procreate in this class by Maja Faber. 

This is a fun and creative class, in a draw-along kind of style, where I will teach you how to illustrate a cute wildflower bouquet in Procreate. 

We will challenge ourselves to simplify our floral drawings so that we end up with a stylized illustration in a modern Scandinavian style. 

In this class, I’ve included a bunch of freebies. You’ll get no less than 3 of our Faber Co. Brushes for free. And I’ve also included a Procreate color palette so that you can draw along with me in class - if you want to use the same colors as me. 

To take this class you need to know your way around in Procreate. I won’t go through the basic functions of Procreate, but we will rather focus on the illustration and how to draw in a minimal style.

1. Intro: Do you want to learn how to draw a wildflower illustration in a minimal style in Procreate? Then this class is for you. This is a fun and creative class in a draw-along style where I will teach you how to illustrate a cute wildflower bouquet interface in Procreate. We will challenge ourselves to simplify our drawings so that we end up with a stylized illustration in a more than Scandinavian style. Hi, I'm Maja Faber. On the second span of this side now, I'm an illustrator. I've been using Procreate for many years. Together with my husband, I create and sell premium Procreate brushes under our brand name, Faber company. In this class, I've included a bunch of freebies. You will get no less than three of our Faber company Procreate brushes. I've also included a Procreate color palette so you can draw along with me in class if you want to use the same colors as me. To take this class, you need to know your way around Procreate. I won't go through the basic functions of Procreate in this class. We will focus on illustration and how to draw a wildflower in a minimal style in Procreate. 2. Class Project: Your project in this class is to create a minimal stylized wildflower illustrations in Procreate. Be sure to share your project here in class. If you share it on Instagram, feel free to tag me with Maja Faber. I would love to see what you create. 3. Downloads & Resources: In this class, I provided you with a bunch of freebies. You will get no less than three premium procreate brushes from me and my husband's brand, Faber Company. The dots and dust brush, the blobber brush, and the watercolor blob 5. The dots and dust and the blobber brush are made exclusively for this class. At least at this moment when this class is released, the only way to get your hands on these brushes are through watching this class. The watercolor blob 5 is a brush from our watercolor splatter and speckled brush set. If you like that brush, we have more brushes available in this brush set that you can buy on my website. But let's get back to the free brushes. The blobber brush is all around brush. It has actually become my favorite brush. The beauty of this brush is that it's a solid flat brush. But you will get this really nice texture at the edges of the brush strokes, which will give your flat drawings a really nice organic touch. I will show you what I mean later on in class. The dots and dust brush is an amazing brush to create some dots and speckles, maybe in the background of your drawing, or you can also use them to texturize an object that you have drawn. The last brush is our watercolor blob 5. This is an amazing brush to use on your digital watercolor drawings of course. But in this class, I will show you how to use this brush to add some really subtle texture on your otherwise flat drawings. The other freebie that I created for this class for you to download is a procreate color palette named Earthy floral. You can use this if you want to draw with the exact same color palette as me in this class. Or if you want to create your own unique color palette, you can watch my previous class here on Skillshare, color inspiration for digital illustration, where I show you how to create this color palette. To download these freebies, you click on the project and resources tab here in class and download a file that says "Download freebies". That will give you a link that will take you to this page. Or you can go direct to this page by typing in the URL that you see on screen now. To unlock the freebies, you type your name and your email address. By doing this, you will also subscribe to my newsletter, which you can, of course, unsubscribe to at any time. Tap on lock and that will take you directly to a dropbox folder where you can download the files. To download the files, tap a file, hit download and direct download, and tap download once again. Then we go back and do the same with the brush set. Tap the little download button at the upper right corner of your browser, and here we have your downloads. When you tap the downloads, they should be imported directly into procreate. Now, we'll import these files right into procreate. If you tap the brush library, you will see the brush set Faber Company free number two with your new imported brushes. If you tap your color palette panel, and usually for me, the newly imported color palettes will be at the bottom of this panel strangely. But what I do then is that I tap and hold, and then I scroll up. All the way up in this panel. Let's see where we are. This is the top and I will place it to the top. You can, of course, keep the palette at the bottom if you wish. I like my new palettes to be at the top of this panel. Then you tap set default to make that panel the default mode so that you have it in, for example, the classic view. 4. Finding Inspiration: There are so many ways to find inspiration for your drawings. If you have the possibility to go out in nature and find real-life wildflowers where you're at. Do it. Inspiration from real life is the best inspiration, at least for me. But if you don't have the possibility to do that, you can always go online. My favorite resources to find inspiration are Pinterest and Unsplash. In this class, I will just use Pinterest. The inspiration that we find in this class to create these simplified, stylized floral illustration are just the base of your illustration. As we are simplifying so much, you don't need to worry about copying your inspiration image. We only have inspiration image to spark our imagination. We will look at the composition of a wildflower bouquet so that you get a good balance in your drawing. I made a Pinterest board with wildflower bouquets that you can use as inspiration. Or of course, if you want to gather your own inspiration, feel free to do that. I share the link to this Pinterest board here in class. So you can use the same inspiration as me if you wish. Here Here just some really nice wildflower bouquets. You can actually go with whatever you wish here. I will go for something that isn't too complicated. This one might be too complicated for me. For the style that I'm looking at, at this moment at least. I will go for something, maybe like this. This has a nice composition. You have some round flowers up here and you have some smaller ones and some larger ones sticking out in the back. Let's just use this as inspiration. If you want to create a screenshot or as I usually do, tap the three little dots and hit "Download the Image". Now this image is saved on our camera roll, and we will use it as inspiration to draw our bouquets in this class. 5. Sketching the Bouquet: Now that we have our inspiration, let's start with the sketching. For this, we'll create a new canvas on Procreate, and as the purpose of this class is to create an illustration that we will share online. I will create a 3,000 pixels square with 300 DPI, which will bring me a maximum layers of 70, which is more than enough for me. This way I know that it's high resolution and if I would like to share this image on my website, I could do that as well as on Instagram and I could even print it if I wanted to do that in the future. So 300 pixels square is good for this purpose. The first thing we will do is to add our inspiration photo. Tap the Actions panel, insert the photo, and then tap and drag to increase the size of your photo. Tap the Selection tool to place it and then you might need to change the size a little bit more. My plan is to draw a bouquet and then a pot at the bottom. I want to make sure that I have room for my pot here and the bouquet here, and then I tap the Selection tool. Next thing is to tap the Layers panel and bring down the opacity. For the purpose of this class, I will keep the opacity on about 50s. So that you still can see the image on camera but feel free to bring it down even further if it's easier for you. Then I tap the Layers panel and create a new layer and I usually sketch in black and I use the sketching brush library that is included in Procreate with the HB pencil. The next step is to simplify these shapes. So what to think about is to somehow keep the composition of this bouquet because the composition is really nice and that way you know that you will get a balanced drawing but what we will think about is to simplify these shapes to create this stylized floral illustration. What I do is that I start with some flower. this one seems good to start with. It's the yellow oval shapes. I don't try to redraw these flowers. I just draw the shape of them. Maybe something like this, and I don't even draw all of them like this one or this one in the background. I try to simplify and I just used three of these flowers. Then to make it stylized, I choose to create a straight line for the stems. I will tap and drag to create straight lines like this for the three of the stems. If you feel that something is out of balance, maybe you feel that this stem, the straightness of it doesn't work with the tilt of the flower, you can always go ahead, choose the Selection tool. Drag around the flower, for example, and rotate it so that it fits the stem. Now we have these three flowers. Let's go ahead with some other flowers. Maybe these yellow small ones. They are all over this image and in the bouquet but I think that I will simplify it and probably add some to the left side, maybe something here and a little one over here. Let's go ahead and see what we can do. I will start with the stem. Click and drag to place a stem at the right side of this bouquet and maybe tilt it down a little bit so something is happening around here at the left side as well, and not just everything in the middle. I think this will bring it a little bit more dynamic, just as it is in the image. Some things are falling off the left side, right side, and you have the high flowers or the leaves on the top and some a little bit more blobby ones in the middle. Let's try to keep that in our sketch. I will just go ahead and simplify these stems. Maybe something like that. Maybe I want to make them even straighter so I can tap and drag to create straight lines. Then I will try to place something that looks like it's in the back of these flowers. I will start with the stem, tap and drag. Maybe something like this, and then I will drag up a few stems at the top there. To not confuse myself, I can just erase the lines that are supposed to be at the background. This stem here is going in the back of this oval floral thing. What more? Maybe I want to place some of this yellow little flowers around here. We just drag down stem, and then maybe I will just keep it like that straight and place some yellow flowers there. To remember on the sketch, what I will put here is just some yellow blobs. This is just a rough sketch, so I don't need to make these detailed at this moment. Over here, we have some blobs as well. Maybe something like that. Let's turn off the visibility of the image and see what is happening with our sketch and that looks pretty good. At this moment, it feels as I want to tilt this flower a little bit to the left here but let's see what happens when we add more flowers. Turn on the visibility again and I will just continue to draw and we'll see if we need to arrange some other flowers later. First, I think I want something big to go off this right edge over here and this is like a stem with leaves. Maybe I would just do a simplified version of this. A stem and I will just make some leaves going out from the stem. Here I really don't follow this image at all, but I think that there should be some larger leaves over here to make the illustration balanced. Let's just start off like that. Maybe we even want to tilt this leaf a little bit more to the right so that it's falling to the right and that one is falling to the left which will make it balanced. The last things that I will add to this bouquet are these higher stems with the leaves and I will really simplify them. Let's start with just drawing with the pencil a stem that goes somewhere around here and I will just simplify it. I will just draw a few roundish leaves on this one and try to keep it a little bit balanced. Let's see how that will look later on and I'll draw this one to meet the one that will go down. Something like that, and now we just erase the line on that floral that is supposed to be on the front, and then I will just do the same, draw really simple round leaves. I'm simplifying as much as possible here. I still want the height of these floral shapes but I don't want the complexity of them. I'll just go ahead and do like this and the same with this one. Maybe something like that, and then maybe I will add this stem with some leaves and we'll make a straight line go out from it on the left side and on the right side. I try to keep the balance of the bouquet but I still don't want to keep the exact same florals. Maybe something like that. Now let's turn off the visibility of the layer with the image and see what we have created. Instantly, I can see that there is a little bit of empty space here that I want to fill. I think the easiest thing is just to move this stem with the leaves a little bit to the right. Let's try that out. I will just cut that out and move it with the Selection tool. Straighten it up a little bit to maybe some like that, and then I will just fix the sketch of this one is coming down there instead and I can just erase the stem that I draw previously and pull it down somewhere around here instead. I will just erase the parts that we don't need anymore so that I don't get confused. Maybe something like this. I think it looks good and I think it will look even better when we are adding the colors. But let's go ahead first and erase the parts of the sketch that are a little bit confusing and that is the parts that are supposed to be in the back of the illustration. Maybe something like this is a good start. 6. Sketching the Vase: The next thing we will do is to sketch the vase or the pot that the flowers will be in. If you need inspiration you can always go to Pinterest and search for something like flowers and vase. Here we have a bunch of vases to get inspiration from. I think I want fat vase, something like this one. We'll just keep that in mind, and I will actually just download that image, go back to procreate and use it as a reference photo. You tap the actions panel, Canvas, Reference, and Image, Import image, and I'm importing the image that I just saved. Then you can keep that as a reference photo when you draw the vase. In this case, I will only use this as inspiration. I want to draw the exact vase that is here. I will just start with a straight line, something like this. Then to keep it simple, I will turn on the drawing guide and access panel, edit drawing guide, and go to symmetry. This is a really simple way to create symmetry in your drawings. In the symmetry tool, I will just tap and drag that line to where I want the center of my vase to be. I draw a little pot or a vase, something like that. Maybe I want to make it bigger than the one on the image. Like that, I think. I think I also want to create a little bit more interest with adding an angle to the top here. Maybe something like that. Then I can just tap the drawing guides so that disappears and makes sure that I tap off the Drawing Assist on that layer. Otherwise, you will keep the symmetry tool. Then I will just tap the little x on the reference image to shut that down. Here we have our finished sketch. It might change a little bit more when we create our final illustration. But this is a great start. 7. Color Palette & Blocking: In this class I'm using the color palette earthy floral that I've created using my technique for creating color palettes from real life illustration. This is a technique that I teach you in another class that's called Color Inspiration For Digital Illustration, Color Palettes In Procreate. If you want to create the color palette using my technique, you can go ahead and check out that class. You can, of course, in this class use the color palette that is included in class or use your own color palette that you have previously made. You can, of course, also choose the colors as you go, if that is what you prefer. The first thing that I will do is to add a background color, that way I can see that the colors that I'm choosing to use for the different objects of this illustration will match with the background color. To make it simple, I will use this neutral color in the earthy floral palette as my background. Then to start to color in this illustration, I will create a new layer. You can choose to drag it underneath your sketch layer, which will make you see the sketch on top of your colors. But for this illustration, I will create the color layers on top of my sketch layer. Sometimes I add the color layers on top of the sketch layer or sometimes I add the color layers underneath the sketch layer. It all depends on what I feel like for this particular illustration. Right now I feel like adding the colors on top of the sketch. First thing I'll do is to drag down the opacity of the sketch layer so that I can see clearly what I'm drawing on top. Then I will start to color in one color per layer. Let's start with these blobby flowers that we drew at first. I will go to my palette and I think for these that I will use the brown color and go to the favorite company, FREE number 2, brush set and I would choose the blobber brush. For most parts of this illustration, I will draw with the blobber brush. I'll just zoom in a bit and start to draw these shapes. I will use a size on the blobber brush I think is about five percent. If you push hard, you will get a larger size. If you push loose, you will get a smaller size. We just draw the outlines and then tap and drag to fill in the color. If you zoom in and see some line here, where the outline meets the field color. You can do is make sure to draw that in. Now we have our first flowers. Then I think that I want to continue with the stems for these flowers and I might want to go ahead with this lighter forest green color. Let's try that out on the layer that is underneath, the layer with the flowers. I well just make sure that I'm on the right layer and draw the stems of these flowers. I will tap and hold to create straight lines. Turn off the sketch layer and see how that looks. Some Some these stems are a little bit wider than the others but that's fine for me at this moment. Let's see if we will change that later on, but for now this is fine. Then let's go ahead and create the yellow flowers. Now we use the darker forest green color from the palette for this and make sure I'm on a new layer. Tap and drag to create these stems that are straight, something like that. Then I think I will decrease the size of the brush to maybe four percent because I feel that these lines are a little bit thick. Now let's try again. I will use a light hand, tap and drag and I will just draw all of these stems that are supposed to go to the yellow flowers. Something like that. As I want the yellow flowers to be behind the brown blobby ones, I will drag that layer at the bottom of those two. Now I have the stems of the yellow flower, I will turn off the sketch. That looks pretty strange for now, but let's just go ahead with that and we will see what we can do. Now I add a new layer to add the yellow flowers. I think I will actually keep those yellow, the smaller flowers. Turn off the image layer and make sure you're on a new layer. The blobber brush, and let's see what we can do here, maybe increase the size. I will just create these blobs and try to make them balanced, so maybe something like that. Now I'll just go ahead because we are on the yellow layer now. Now I'll just go ahead and create this other blobs from the yellow flower. I don't have a plan here, I just tried to make them balanced some way. We can turn off the sketch layer and see how it went. Maybe I want to add a little bit more up here and that looks pretty okay, I think. Maybe something like that. Let's continue with the next flower. Turn on the sketch layer and continue with maybe the stem with the green leaves on it. That one will be underneath all of these flowers. Drag that layer just about the sketch layer and I will go for that darker green color and the blobber brush. This stem I think I want a little bit thicker, not that thick but a little bit and I will still keep that line straight like that. Then draw the leaves. Don't mind if it looks a little bit weird with the flowers going in front and underneath each other. I will show you a little trick on how I make them pop later on, but for now let's just keep it like this. I'll tap and drag to fill the leaves and see how that looks. That looks okay. I might want to drag down the size of that so I tap the layer and the selection tool and we'll drag down the size a little bit like this. Maybe I want to free form it as well to see if I can create a little bit more interest. For me that looks pretty good. Then I will turn on the sketch again and I will create these taller stems with the leaves and those will be at the very back. Let's place them there and let's go ahead with a lighter green color to see how that looks. I will make sure that I'm on about four or five percent. The brush size I will click and drag to create the stems and then the leaves. Here I try to make really simple shapes. Maybe we'll be a little bit too busy there, so I will just remove that leaf. But now I see that I think it has two thick stem here, so let's just undo that. Tap two fingers and I will just bring down the size to maybe two percent and draw really thin stems because these ones will be in the background. I don't want them to be popping as the ones in the foreground and I will just continue with this one. Tap and hold to make it straight. Draw the little leaves. Try to keep them the same shape like this and just continue to draw all of these stems. Don't mind if they are touching each other, we will fix that later on. Just continue to draw stems, you don't need to mind the details. This is just getting the colors on the objects right. There's something missing here. Now we will fill in all of these leaves. Let's turn off the sketch layer so we don't get confused and drag in the color on all of these leaves. Let's zoom in and fix the details, you can just draw in the white spaces or you can fill them in. How does that look? It looks pretty good, I think. Now we can go ahead and turn on the sketch layer. We basically draw all of the plants, the leaves the stems and flowers and everything, and now we will draw the vase. I will create the new layer, drag it on top of everything, and for the vase I will use this pink color, the blobber brush. Turn the size down a little bit and just go in and draw the vase. Here I won't mind the symmetry I will just draw. I think it's charming if it's not exactly symmetrical, but at the same time I want to keep it a little bit symmetrical. Maybe it doesn't make sense, but that's how I want it. We'll fill in the vase and fix the details a little bit. Now we can turn off the sketch layer and have a look at our plant. I feel that the vase isn't exactly the shape that I wanted. I will use the blobber brush as the eraser tool and let's see if we can make it a little bit more interesting. That shape is a little bit more interesting for me. Now we have the base of our drawing we have added in the colors. Let's go ahead to the next lesson where I will show you a trick to use where you have objects that are in the foreground and background and you want to make them pop out a little bit. 8. Add White Space: Okay. Now we've drawn all of the objects in our illustration, but they're really flat. In this lesson I will show you how I use white space to separate the objects in a really simple way. We have some objects in the foreground and some in the background. To make the ones in the foreground pop so that you can really see that they are in the foreground and separate them from the objects in the background, I will show you a really simple trick for these kinds of flat, simple, stylized illustrations. Add a new layer on top of all of the layers and I will use the background color, so the creamy white color and earthy floral palette. I will use the same brush as I drew with Blobber and the same size as well. Then I will just go ahead and make sure that I know which objects are supposed to be in the foreground and which objects are supposed to be in the background. For example, let's start with these green leaves. Maybe I want this stem with the leaves to be in the foreground and then I just add some white space where that leaf would have touched the other leaf. For this one, maybe I want to have that one in the foreground and then you just go ahead and do the same thing on all other places where the leaves are touching each other. All you need to do is to choose which one are supposed to be in the foreground and which one are supposed to be in the background. That's a really simple way to separate the foreground from background. Let's continue with the other ones. Here, this stem is in the background, so I will actually go ahead and create a new layer on top of that stems here and use the same technique. Draw there and to make it really show which is in the background and which is in the foreground, I'll just add some white space here. Maybe that was too much, that is probably better. Same here. That's them is in the background and the same on this one. This separates the leaves on this stem from the ones in the background. We have something here as well. Something like that. Then I will go ahead and create a new layer on top of each of these that needs to be separated. So let's go over the yellow flowers. This one is in the background. Oops, where do I draw that? I will just pretend that that one is in the background to make it simpler. But the yellow flowers can still be in the foreground of that. It's okay. Here I will go ahead and draw at the side of the brown oval florals like that and that looked a little bit strange, maybe something like that and also around this brown flower here. Zooming out and also here. Let's see how this goes. I don't know if this will look good. That part looks pretty good on the edges. But I don't know what I will do in the center here. To keep it really simple, I will just add more yellow dots. That's the simplest way I can imagine to make this look good. Place maybe something like that. Now that looks better. Let's see if there is somewhere else. Here on top of that leaf, it's supposed to be in the foreground and I want in the background. Let's go ahead and select the layer on top of the background. Leaves, the Blobber brush and I will just add some white space there. Now we added white space on all of the foreground flowers. That makes the foreground flowers of the bouquet pop to the foreground and the background to stay in the background. That's a really simple trick to work with foreground and background when creating this simplified stylized illustrations. 9. Adding Details and Texture: Now that we have the base of our illustration with the colors, we will add some details. I usually add some dots and lines as details and sometimes when I draw in Procreate, I add some nice textures to my flat illustrations with some brushes that I will show you. For me, details and texture are best when it's less. Like the less is more principle. I like texture, but I don't like when it's over-texturized if that's the word. I like to add a little bit of texture. I will show you how I do this here. The first thing we will do is to add some details to the background flowers. They seem a little bit flat to me at the moment, so let's go ahead and add a layer on top of those. I will actually just use the background color for this, the blob brush, and I will add some blobs with the blob brush on these florals, so two or three dots to add some details on the leaves. This is a really good trick if you create flat illustrations as I tend to do, that you just draw some dots or lines to make it look a little bit more interesting as texture or details to your drawings. For me here it's the overall look that matters. I'm not that focused on every dot and that it needs to look perfect. I think that the overlook with some dots here and there will look really good I hope so. I guess now I have added some dots on all other leaves in the background so they look pretty good. I can see now when it comes to details that all of these stems are pretty much the same width, but this one is really thin. I will go back to that layer with the blob brush and just make it a little bit bigger so that it looks more cohesive. That looks better to me. That was the first detail to the flowers. I actually feel that I want to try another color to the background flowers. Let's go ahead and tap that layer and tap "Select". I will try the different colors of my palette. I think I want something that is a little bit softer. That is the green and that is the light brownish beige color. I think I like that better. Let's just change to that color and we'll see later on if that was a good choice. Now we will continue with the details on this stem with the leaves. I will just add some lines with the lighter forest green color in the middle of the stem. This is a simplified easy way to add some interests, but at the same time, not make it too complicated with details. There is something that is a little bit disturbing and that is that stem of that flower. I will just go ahead to that layer and erase that stem. Not that layer, no, that one, and erase that over there so it's not in the way. That looks pretty good. Next, I'll add texture on the vase. Select the color by tap and hold on the vase and then I think I will go a little bit just more saturated, maybe like that. Now we will go ahead and add texture with the watercolor blob 5 brush. This is a stamp brush and I will add a new layer on top and tap clipping mask, which will make my texture only be inside of that object and I'm not able to draw outside of that object when I draw on the layer with clipping mask to a layer underneath. I will try to increase the size of the brush. Let's try to tap to see what we can create, and that looks really good to me. We zoom in, you can see that it has added some interesting texture. I think I'm actually pretty happy with that. Let's see if we can add that texture to some place else to make it a little bit more balanced. I think I can add it to these oval flowers. Let's add a layer on top, tap the layer clipping mask, and we will go ahead and use the lighter brownish color, the watercolor blob 5 brush, maybe I would try to drag down the size a little bit to around 10 and add some texture here and maybe bring up the size a bit. So something like that. Now we've added the same texture on the vase and on these flowers. That way we are keeping it balanced. But at the same time, we don't have this texture on all of the flowers in our illustration. The yellow flowers are flat, the green ones are flat, and the ones in the background have the little dots details on it. That way I keep it balanced, but at the same time simplified and texturized. I'm pretty happy with this. 10. Background: Now we have drawn our wildflower in the vase and added details and texture. You can keep it like this, but I would like to add something in the background to ground the illustration. I will add a table in the background. On top of the sketch layer, I will add a new layer. Let's go ahead and use the same brown as on these oval flowers. The blobber brush, and I will just draw a line with a little bit bigger brush. That goes something like this. Maybe something like that. For me at this illustration, I feel that this background is a little bit too high up. I try to think of the illustration as in third. Here is 1/3, 2/3, and the 3/3 down here. I will either move the vase and the flowers up. Let's go ahead and try to do that. Select all of the layers that we have drawn on, except the table layer or the background layer. Then I will just tap and drag to place the flower someplace that is about in the middle. That looks pretty good on this. Drag it down a little bit. Then I actually feel that I will select the layer that is supposed to be the table, and I will just drag that down a little bit. This is about balance, and it's just my eye, and how I feel about this drawing. Just fill in the background over there. That looks pretty good. To add some more interest to this background to the table or whatever we want to call it. I will add some squares. Go ahead with the blobber, and I will use the lighter brownish color for this and drag the size down to small. Tap the layer and clipping mask. That way I make sure that I don't draw over here, but only down here on the brown part. Try to drag some lines to see if the size is good. I feel that the size is good. I will just drag some diagonal lines here. I want them to be not exactly straight, so I won't mind if they are a little bit like on the rough end. That's completely fine. For me, that just makes the illustration a little bit more organic and not that stiff. After a few trials, I'm happy with this. Now this illustration is beginning to look finished to me. But I still have one more brush to use the dots and dust. I will use that to add some more interest to the white background of this illustration. On top of the sketch layer, I will add a new layer, and I will try to use the same color as the flowers in the background with the dots and dust. Make sure I'm on a new layer, and then add the dots. For me that was a little bit too close to the color on the background flowers. I will just go ahead and make that color a little bit lighter. Now I will add some dots and the dust. If I feel that they are in the way of my illustration, I can always go in and erase some of the dots that are competing with my main illustration. Now I'm happy with this, and for me, this illustration is finished. 11. Save & Export: Now our illustration is finished. I hope that you are really happy with the result. Thanks to the blob brush, we have got this really nice edges to our illustration that makes it locally with more organic than just a plain flat drawing. We also added some details with the white dots and with a watercolor brush. Now it's time to export our illustration. As the purpose for this class is just to create an illustration that you can share online. We would just export it as a JPEG. If you have used procreate previously, you probably know how to do this, but I will show you anyway. You tap Share and JPEG, then you would just export your file. You can save your image to your camera roll. Here we have our finished illustration ready for you to share on, for example, Instagram and as the class project here in class. 12.
