About This Class

In this class, You will learn how to illustrate a cardinal using Procreate. But you will also be learning so much more in the process! 

I will walk you through my process for using reference photos and making gesture drawings. We’ll also cover the importance of planning your sketch, composition, color and overall mood before beginning final art.

We’ll be using texture, shape, line and layers to digitally paint our cardinals with depth, detail and personality! Then I’ll show you how to prepare your final files. And I’ll be throwing in Procreate tips along the way! 

By the end of this class, you will have learned new techniques and strategies that you can carry into your future work! Your cardinal is just one step on your creative journey!

This class is for everyone with a basic knowledge of Procreate. Whether you are brand new to this subject, style or medium; looking for a relaxing and rewarding hobby; or make your living from your art, this class is for you!
