About This Class


Did I just hear you say: “Aaahw, he’s so cute!”? Henry Hedgehog is adorable, isn’t he?

While the sketch is a vital part of making an adorable illustration, the paintjob will actually break-or-make it. It is the coloring and the textures that will take the cute-factor to the next level.

The wide range of possibilities Procreate gives us to work with, is simply stunning. I’ve created my own brush pack for illustrative painting. In this class I will show you how to use them to create this heartwarming look.

This entire brush pack is my gift to you. My hope is that you will learn to use them well. Then you too can create such adorable cuties to put a smile on your own and someone else’s face.

So come and join me in the fun of turning a nice sketch into a heartwarming illustration.

1. Introduction: Welcome to this class. I'm very excited about this class. This is my first Procreate glass. Normally I only create lessons for traditional artwork, but personally I do a lot of illustrations in Procreate. So why not make a class with it? Meet Henry, the head shot. He's what this class is all about. This class is about illustrated painting. This beautiful painting, we're only going to paint and we're not going to draw. So I have supplied all of the things you need to do this. So starting with the sketch, I created, the color palette we're going to use, of course, the brushes we're going to use and even the texture to turn this into a more convincing, illustrative painting with all of the materials I supplied, we're going to build this illustration from the ground-up. And I'm just going to take you step-by-step through this whole painting process and show you how to reach this result. If you have no experience, you can just join in. If you have a lot of experience, you can join in. If you're somewhere in the middle. Just join into, I have lots of fun creating this class and I want to teach you some of these skills. So you can have a lot of fun with illustrated painting in procreate to. 2. Using the Downloads: Welcome to this first lesson. It's not really a lesson, more of an instructional video just to get you setup. What do you need for this class? You need an iPad, and I'm using the Apple pencil, which I pet, doesn't matter. A regular iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and an Apple pencil, first-generation, second-generation. Or if you're watching this in the future, whatever generation there is. But you need a few other things beside it. Now of course, you need Procreate on your iPad because we have Procreate, all of this is not going to work and we're going to download some resources now. So here's the video playing you're watching now you need to do this in your browser, on your iPad. So in Safari or Chrome browser, whatever browser you have, I've got Safari here. And then under here you see D about where we have the info on the class. And there you see Project and Resources. You click on that one and you see right here free resources. There are three resources. Henry Hedge of illustrate, tiff painting, that is the sketch and the paper texture. Then I have the ABB art by Benjamin illustration brush set of previously the brush set. And you have the hedgehog swatches. Let's start with the first one. All you need to do is to click on it. Then It's going to ask you, this question pops up. So do you want to download? Yes, I do want to download that. So I press download. It starts to download this. And now up here you see this little arrow. And it started to like a, like a clock turn. I press on the arrow and there is the hedgehog and I press on it. And now it's going to ask me what do I want to do with it? No, it doesn't ask that. It just goes right into procreate and start that. So here's the file you need. And in that file you see some textures paper called text, and you see the sketch, and I'll explain that later. My sketch and a layer starts here. So he just added that automatically to procreate. And you have, Henry had shock, illustrative painting and the right size and everything. And that's one we're going to use. All right, let me go back. The brushes. Now, under Henry had shock. The one-to-one, we downloaded the file. Here's the brushes. You just click on it. It will ask you, we want to download this? Yes, I do want to download the AABB illustration brush set. It starts to download and we'll just wait a little while. Recently quick. And then this one says, yes, it's ready. I press on it and I'm going to click on it. And it takes me to where the downloaded. Now the download is in my downloads, in my I've got a Dutch one, so it's a standard progresses your English one is files in the downloads and you have to search for the ABB illustration brush set here it is. Just click on it. Now it import that automatically into Procreate. If you go back to the hatch of painting, then you should have on the top of all your brushes and new set with brushes. That's the brushes we're going to use. All right, the last myth, the last one are the swatches that are very small, so our press on them. It asks me, do I want to download? Yes, I do want to download and that is ready right away. Press on it. I see here the swatches. I press on it. It takes me to the position again where they've downloaded. So here they are, hedgehog swatches and you have to search in your files where it is, it brings you to do right page. You just click on it. It imports them right away into procreate. And if you go to your palate, it is on the bottom and you just set that to default. All right, That's it. That's what we need to do. Okay, Now if you have Google grow on it, it works slightly different. So let me quickly demonstrate that to same thing. You go to skillshare on your iPad, you press resources, and there you go, you have free resources. I'm going to just repeat the thing again. And it asks you here to download. So I pressed on it, asked to download, you downloaded. You just wait for it to download. Goes really fast because it's not big. And once it's done, you just click on here and it says Open in. You click on it. And then from there, you, from the list on top, you just choose Procreate and it automatically imports in Procreate right-hand R3. I'm getting plenty of Henry files now. There's a new one there. Brushes. Same thing. I'm clicking on the brushes. It will ask me, do you want to download? Yes, I do want to download. It asks me to open in and I'm gonna say I'm gonna open it in Procreate and it imports them in Procreate right away. If I go to the file, press the brushes, there should be a second set now. Yep. So the top one is the new set. And of course with the swatches, It's the same. I'm closing this download window. That should take me back. I'm pressing on the swatches. I'm saying yes, I do want to download them. That goes really fast, open them in, Procreate. It's importing them. It is on the bottom and you just set that to default. Okay, That's it. And now we can start, yes, we can start working. So that's a quick instruction of how to get the files into Procreate. I will see you in the next lesson where we're going to start illustrative painting, Henry, the heat shock. 3. Body Painting I: Welcome to this first real lesson. Now before we start, I would suggest get a cup of tea or a cup of coffee worth it. And let's have fun with this. All right, if all goes well, you have imported this picture, you see this snap. First thing we're gonna do, you see the sketch here. And we're gonna go to the layers and you see watercolor paper. Let's switch that off for now. Now you see here a sketch. And the sketch is price that you see that it's noted private. And why that is private. Now let's say you start painting this and we're gonna do this together. And you want to share this with your friend. You don't want to have this on top of it. So what I did, I created a private image of S. Now the way you do that, if you don't know how to do that, let me just quickly show you that if you have a new layer. So let's start here. And you go to Add, you have insert photo. That's how you normally would when you click on it. And you would go to your photo library and pick a photo. Now instead of doing that, slide this to the left and you see insert a private photo, click on it, pick photo from your library. And now the time-lapse will disregard this whole image. So it's not getting away. You only see the work you're doing. All right, That's a little extra tip. You're getting for free, but now we're going to start, we're going to start on the Start Here layer now you can name, rename that anything you like. And by renaming it, you just click on it and you say Rename and you can rename it. Let's say this is called the base layer. And return. There we go. This is going to be the base layer of Henry, the head shock. So we're going to paint him and what we're gonna do first. So we have a clean, empty layer. We're going to go to the brushes show. You have to go to ABB illustration art by Benjamin illustration, and you see a lot of brushes in them now we're not going to use all of them is a few extra in them you can experiment with. We're going to begin with the pig pen salt agar and the colors. Now, if all goes well, you have they had shock collars. And we're going to start with this brownish color. That will be our base color for and so on my swatch, that is the second column, not the blue, but the second column. All right. Now this is a stamp, but we're not going to stamp. We're going to color with the stem. We're going to paint with the stem. And we're just going to paint his body and his feet there. But not this part, not the spot and not this parts. That will be a different column. So let's start with painting, Henry. And I've put it on. 14%. And that is a nice size. And as you can see, we're going to just paint. Now. You already see what I'm doing is not really an accurate thing. I even let some of the white come through because the easiest thing is I can zoom in all the way and go very accurate, but it's much easier to just keep him in few paints him loosely. That will be his first layer. And for this one, let's see if I can get rid of most of the white too. Because we're going to use this base layer to paint on more. Alright, so I think on our need is hand. I've done every part and I'm just going to get an eraser. And for the eraser, I'm using airbrushing and a medium blends. You can use a medium airbrush. Medium blend works fine and not too large, about 23 percent. Zooming in and I'm just going to erase all the parts of him, but I'm gonna do that reasonably loosely. So I'm might leave a spot here and there and I don't want that. So a few new to Procreate, I just press two fingers to undo. That will do the same as these buttons here. The redo and undo free fingers is redo. Two fingers to undo what you have done wrong. Hello. Now it doesn't have to be perfect, but it has to be nice. Alright? There is now, and if he would hide that top layer, that private. And by the way, the opacity is all the way down with that should be all the way down in your fingers so that you just can see underneath what you're doing and hide them. And then you get this. Now this would be Henry's base. Now, this, I don't think looks nice, so I'll have to do something about this. And what I'm gonna do is I'm going to lower the opacity of this one really low to about 12 percent. And now I'm going to paint and now I can see where I went wrong and now I'm on the wrong layer. Yes, you gotta take care of that. To prevent going on the wrong layer, what you do is you slide this to the left and then you see a lock. Let's lock this layer now we cannot per excellent drawing it if I'm hitting it now, I'm getting a notification that this is a locked layer. All right, we'll go back to my base layer. Now. I don't like his poured way it is. Right now that is better. And then I can go over my design quickly and do some quick modifications. That's okay. Little bit there. His poll here missing just a little bit. Alright, let's see, this is not really nice. So erase that. Okay, now I'm pretty much done. The rest will leave for now, right? So this will be our base layer. What we're with you. Next video, we're going to start painting him a bit more. So I would say do the base layer, and I'll see you in the next video. 4. Body Painting II: All right, welcome to this lesson. I've painted Henry's body, but I'm going to show you a second way to paint Henry's body. So let me show you that. I'm bringing back that sketch. Let me hide this layer. I'm going to add a new layer. I'm going to pick Henry's body column. So I'm picking the big pencil, same as we had before. But now I'm going to make it really small. 2%. I'm having him rich color. And what I'm gonna do next is I'm going to trace Henry's body. I'm going to make sure that I nicely overlap if I start a new line. So there are no gaps. Right there. This one. Alright, two fingers, undo button. All right, let's see that is the Henry is closed. All right, that would be Henry Louis pore here and his foot. So I need to make sure this foot is close or disadvantages as well painting. All right, That would be another way. Now, this is not done. You say No, you're right. Now if this same color I'm gonna do is with my pen, I'm going to pick that color and drag it here and let it go. And then it paints. If you have gaps, It's not going to paint. So I would need to do that one. And that one. And then Henry is done, painted. And personally, I do like this less because it has less charm. And especially if you're going to use what we call other colors in this painting, this feels neatly, but if you have watercolors and some transparent paint, this is not going to look half as good as by doing it by hand. I'm going to undo it. Show you something. If they had put works with me, right? And we've got this. Now if you have a gap, Let's say we have a slight gap, doesn't slight gap, is it But a gap and you feel it's going to fill your whole page. Let me close it again. At times you may have your threshold settings wrong, and then this happens two, and let me demonstrate that. Let's see if my pen will work with them. Now if I drag this and hold it, you see this line there, see that it fails. And you have to color drop threshold. If I drag my pen this way, It's gonna get less in, less accurate. And eventually it would go outside of what I've drawn, but I'm running out of space. Try it again. There you go. So if yours is on 99, 100 percent, then this is what you get and what you just do. Your hold your pen when you drop your color and you start sliding back until it nicely fills your objects. So Henry is nicely filled. So the threshold just controls how accurate something gets filled or how inaccurate something gets filled. So if yours doesn't feel well, play with D here. Slider and lead tech go up or down until it feels nicely. Okay, right? That's a second way to do Henry's body now as you can see, bit quicker than the other way. But depending on the paintbrushes you using, this might not give the same result you want because this is all quite solid, but still see some gaps in it. I would need to do some work here if I want to walk away all these little gaps I have. All right, good. That's it. In the next one, we're going to continue with Henry. 5. Shadows - more Bodywork: Welcome back. We're going to do some more work on him because this is not that this is nothing, this is just a flat little bit painting. We're going to work some more on that. What we're gonna do is on top of this one. So on top of the base layer, we're going to add a new layer. But what we do if these were going to make this a group and to have a group, pick the one layer, drag it onto the other layer, let it go. And now you see a new group. Now you can rename this group. Let's rename this right away. This is Henry and it is his body. Let's go Henry, body. You can call headshot, hedgehog body, of course, anything you want. Now, we've got two layers in this. And this layer. We want to make sure that whatever is on this layer, we've painted that whatever we paint on top of it does not go outside the lines we've created. And to do that, tap it once and you see a lot of options here and we're going to pick this option clipping mask. Now that will ensure that whatever we paint cannot go outside Henry, so it stays inside what we have painted. Now, we're going to have a clipping mask and we're going to do another thing. We're going to do, multiply. So you have some options. If you have a normal layer, this will just paint normally. But what we wanna do, we wanna strengthen the color then is under here. And by doing that, what we're gonna do, so we don't want to paint something on top of it, but we want to make sure it regards what is under there. And for that you just tap the end you see here and drag slightest up until you see multiply. And we're going to use Multiply now it keeps whatever is under there and it puts a layer on top of it with a little bit of, let's say transparency. Okay, What we're gonna do next, we're going to pick a different pencil. And let's see which one are we going to pick? We're going to pick the pencil hatch stamp. What do we want to deal with this? We want to create some darker areas and we're going to create lighter areas too, so that he sits in the sunlit, say the sun comes from here. So that means that some of the areas where the sun doesn't reach that well need to be darker. And for that we of course also need a darker color. And we're going to pick just the darker color, this one. So the fourth color we're going to pick, and we now have that stamp. Now, that stamp can go very large. You see here can go very low. And we're just gonna go, Let's see how far we go. Let's say 4%. Let's see if that is a nice body for him, a nice shade on his body. And we're going to stamp like this, a go. Look at that. I think we could go slightly bigger. Let's go two to five, right? 5%. And what I'm gonna do, I'm just going to stamp like this where the darker areas would be now this would be the main areas. And as you see right away. He's not going outside. That pad. An easy staying inside a little bit here too. And on the Dario needs to be someone where we can erase some. We need some here on the here. We're going to do that too, but for that we're going to go a bit smaller. Stamp a little bit there on his pour, a little bit there on this poll and on this poll, we need some too, but not on his foot, so we can erase that right away. Let's see, but we want some here. And under there. Right now I see that I have a slight mistake there. See that? On my base layer. Let's erase that right away. Stamp revealed that. All right, Now that's all we're gonna do with this one. And I might add a few small ones. Now that I have done under there. And now I'm on the wrong layer. So if you're on the wrong layer like me, use the undo either the buttons or this until whatever his room and I can clearly see where I went wrong now that it's gone. Go back to my right layer. Under here, I want some extra and around here, just a couple and a little bit more also on top of this. And the rest. Let's see around here. Little bit. And just a bit around there. Okay, that would be the second step of Henry, the head shock. Now let's go to the first step right away, we're going to add another layer on top of this. Again, make it a clipping mask. And we're going to pick a different brush, the stamp soft gray and this one they're stamp Graham soft. We're going to pick that one. We're also going to change this layer to something else. What we're gonna do next, we're going to intensify the darker areas a little bit. So in the really dark areas. And to do that, we're gonna use something called color burn on this layer. So again, I'm going to make new layer and I'm going to pick color burn. And what this does, it does literally what it says, it burns in a color, so it intensifies that color. Really strong. But it's still read Glass was under it. Okay. So we've changed our brush to do stamp gray and soft. And I've got it on about 42%. And I think that might be big enough. And we're going to intensify some of the darker areas. And I will be around here. And I'm just pressing the Lindsay and you get a nice, interesting color. And we're keeping the same column. But as you can see, it adds a totally different tone to the outside now to where you want TO shadows to be a bit stronger. See you get a very interesting nice TO, let's add a little bit here too. And on this edge a little bit. Let's go do that here too. All right, there we want some and it's just giving me a nice extra column. And I'm stamping that's in. See, that looks really nice. Let's go under here too. And I'm just coloring this in a little bit more rights. And let's intensify this a little bit. Let's make it smaller, really small, so that I can intensify that a little bit too, ends on his thumb. If you did this one. Let's not forget that one on there. And let's intensify this a little bit. All right, Now Henry looks suddenly quite differently. And there you go. That's that for this. I'm Laura, I'm not going to do more than this. Only really the edges now you could go with the opacity. I could lower it, but I think we're okay with this. So let's see. If you press on here, on this layer again, just press on that word. You see here the opacity. You could slide this down, slide this up, and we might go a little bit lower. Let's go for 75. That blends it in. A little bit more. Yeah, more nice then we have all right, henry, you're starting to look like something. Let's make sure Henry disappears. And now see, we're getting some nice tones, some definitions. We're going to add some strongest shadows later on too, but for now, this looks good. All right, good. Let's leave it for this lesson. Let's bring Henri back down. There's Henry back. And I would say, yes, you probably followed along. If you haven't, then I would say, try this and I'll see you in the next lesson. 6. Adding Highlights: Okay, well the next thing we're gonna do, we're gonna give him some nice highlighted areas and lighter areas. For that, we need another layer. And you could rename all these layers. Of course we're gonna do it clipping mask. And what we're gonna do now we're going to do this as an Add Layer. We're going to add color to him, a light color. So if you do that, ads will leave it for now. The opacity, we'll change that later on to what we like. We need a lighter color for that. So we might go back to his original color, pick this really light color. One of the two. Let's pick the really light color. Let's see what's happened. And we're gonna need this one, the big stamp, soft. We're going to work with this one, that one. Let's see, let's put it on to 3%, right? And we're everything set. Yes, we are. And we're gonna do some highlighted areas and now look at that. And he will say, probably agree with me, way too lights. So what we could do, I'm going back to what I did. And we could pick that color he had on its base. And I like that very well. And let's pick that and we're going to lower the opacity. One, we're done. Let's see. We need some light there, we have some light there. We're going to need some light here, and that's going to be tricky. So what we do, we're going to lower him to 1%. And on his farm we can start on his hand. And let's add some here. And on his leg we're going to do the same because the sun comes from here. That would be some on his legs, on the top of his leg. 12. Let's add a little bit on his mouth there. This is way too strong. So we're going to go to that layer by tapping your layer at, and we're going to lower this opacity. And we just wanted a little bits. Let's go for 34%. That looks nice. Yes, let's do that. And we're having Henry and he's slowly progressing. We've got some highlights and that is looking pretty good. Okay, Next step we're going to add some more highlights on his bodies and different ones. We're going to add a new layer. We're going to do clipping mask again. We're still working on that base layer and everything on top stays to the base layer. We're going to keep this on normal, but we're going to lower the opacity right away to about 70 percent. 69. 71 is okay. And let's go for another color. We need to cray and scribbler for that one. That's step the stamp cranes scribbles on there. We're going to choose a really light column. So now we're picking this color and we're just going to add that. And I want to have that a bit more on his body like that. See, and that looks good. Also, not forgetting that part. And lightening his body uncertain parts a little bit. And that blends in automatically. That highlight a little bit, see now, but that blends that in very nicely. Instead of that harsh highlight, we're gonna do that here to lower it to about 2% and move the other. I was about 4%. And blend this in a little bit and do that here too. So we don't have harsh lines. Still get some nice highlights. Even go there a little bit. But there, we've done that one. All right. Now that looks a lot nicer once you have some there. All right, henry, you're starting to look nice. Let's look at Henry C and re-establishing to look nice. So although he's missing a few parts, I think the last thing we're gonna do with Henry, we're going to give him some more definitions, some shadow, we're going to create some lines because now his arm just blurs, disappears into his body and we can't have that. Can we for that, we're going to pick just a regular pencil. There you go. And the pencil is on about 13, 14%. We're going to leave that we need another layer for this. And we're going to use multiply again because we want to add this color on top of the rest, darkening get buts regarding what's under it. So multiply. And now, there you go. All right, and we need, of course, the clipping mask for that because we want to stick to Henry and don't go outside. Now we need a darker color for that. This is a nice dark color. The fourth color is really dark. And I'm going to zoom in. I'm going to bring in the sketch, bring, bring back the sketch and the lines where he would really have whoever has transitioned from his head to his body. We're going to do these lines. And what we're gonna do, we're not going to use the tip, but we're going to put our pencil on an angle. And now you see, we're going to just paint in that. And that is way, way, way too strong for now. But what we're gonna do with that simply, we can lower the opacity on the whole layer C. And now it blends in really nicely. And returning on purpose depends on sites for this, so that we can create some shadow areas. There you go. And let's see, we want to have some right on his back. They're blended in a little bit and blending in you just basically do less pressure if you do a lot of pressure, let me demonstrate that you get a fit line. If you do a little bit of pressure, you get that nice blends. See that, now I have to undo that. All right? And so I'm not pressing really, really hard. Well, I'm making some definitions. We have some shadows would be here. Oh, there we go. Conduit. Not on this part, only on this part. On his hands, on his farm. A little bit. Even there, a very little bit here, some to the ego and not, not they're a 110 on the arm there. And now let's do a little bit there to fade this out a little bit. And we're going to do where later on his spikes come little bit too, right? That is nice. Okay, Now let's take away that sketch and I look at that. See, now I didn't read, suddenly getting some definition. Now we want some lines too. If this, Let's do that right away. Let's bring back Henry and lower it. And we're going to a 150 percent, 2%. But the high side of 2%, Let's go for free percent. Let's see. Yeah, that's nice. All right. I'm going to bring in a smile. I'm just going to draw that in. There you go. And what I want to have is a little bit of dark area there, but I'm leaving that top on purpose so that you get a nice, You get a nice smile with a nice line. We wanna do some on here too. We do at later. First we're going to try and add. Now I'm using the point instead of that side. Try and add a little bit of a line there and a little bit more of a definite line there. And let's do that on that top two and right here. That's true in a little bit of these lines. Let's do that very carefully around there to see and around there's no snow. Fine with that. All right. Let's see how he looks now. Now, look Now he's getting somewhere. Henry, you're starting to look nice. I think we can do henry like this. And we're going to add, of course, more details. Now, the only thing that's nice is it we're going to hire him reveals and adds just a line around there. And I want to do the same here, bit higher, but I'm putting the opacity even lower. And just wants shadow to go there. And I want some shadow to go there. And now Henry is looking interesting and we could do just a little bit around his eyes already. Let's see Henry here looking good. I'd say, we'll leave Henry like this. Alright, that's the base of Henry. Now we're going to add the ice. We're going to add his light parts and we couldn't do his ears. Let's do is ES first. Okay. We miss these ears. Right? There is his ears and I just totally missed dose. So I'm going back to my base layer and we're going to get that first color. We started with. And I'm going back, going back to that first big pencil and let's see, it's not too big. And we're going to draw in, and I've got it on about 1, 1% percent is really small. Let's go to about 3%. And let's draw in his ear. And now we're not going to erase, we're just going to draw in his ear like that. Now you see that's only part of the air and the rest will come. Alright. There we go. And look. There's a highlight there already. The rest we will put in his spikes and that will go over it. Now we're going to go to that. Firstly, we had that multiply layer Dino, which we use on that layer, that was the pencil hatch templates. Find that on again. That is up here, this one, now that one. And we need a bit darker color for the one. And we need to bring in these lines, error areas too. There we go, We're going to the next layer. And for that, the next layer would be this layer. I know that layer. And we're going to do to stamp soft gray and for that, That's on the hair. There you go. And we just call strengthen these. Paint that in a little bit, a little bit larger. We may need less good color. Let's do a little bit here. Okay? All right, let's get the same color on the layer again. Let's add a little bit there and a little bit there. Okay? All right, And then we're gonna go to the highlights that the Swift is add. And we use the big stem soft for that one. That's than one. And we just added highlights with that. Let's see. If he's gonna do it. We have it on a very low. Let's go with the opacity. And now we're going to refine that a little bit with those scribbles on the next layer, that was this layer. And refine that just a little bit good. And do we need, we need a lot darker there. We're going to go to the pencil now, the regular pencil on the top multiply layer, we're going to pick a darker color again. And we're going to bring in that would that's way too big. That is not the right blurred. She definitely not. That's the right brush. And we're going to go the opacity all the way down, sorry, all the way up. We're going to go bit smaller with the pencil 6%. And I want to draw in that line of his air rights. And let's add just a little bit of shadow right there. That looks good. All right, good. Now Henry is done for this part. And there you have NRI and his ears are back, his complete. All right. That's it for this one. Moving to the next layer, moving to the next, and we do that in the next lesson. Yes, you haven't done this, then I would say do this. If you have followed along, then you can move with me right away to the next lesson. But don't forget that cup of tea here. You picked in the beginning, or your cup of coffee or whatever, take a sip. And then we move to the next lesson. 7. Painting the lighter Bodyparts: All right, welcome back. I need Henry back to we've come a long way already and this is, this is the main thing. The major thing I'm drawing is the main body shape. The rest will go a lot quicker. What we're gonna do next, Let's do add these light areas. And for that, we're going to add a new layer on top of this one. And we're going to make that a new group in a minute. But for now, we'll leave it like this. We need a light color, that lightest color there, and we need that big stamp again. Now, sorry, a big pencil, that one of the big stem, the big pencil. And we need to cover this in now it is pretty small already, I think not too small, about free percent. We're moving this one under Henry's body. And it means that if we paint outside, see that nothing is Connor outside. Yeah, outside of our field, nothing is really going to happen. So we can do this basically a lot quicker. The only thing we need to make sure it's at the book, but we're going to do the book in top of now. We're not going to do the book in top of it because this one needs to be on top. So we need to pay a little bit of attention there on that one. Do is feed. And that makes life easy. We can even go under it a little bit. And we could have come slightly smaller. Let's go to the 2%, so that's better. Right? Do this foot two. And then we have his highlighted areas. Sorry, has lighter and he's now not highlighted areas. Benjamin deserve a lighter areas. Move this a little bit and up here too. So I need to erase here a little bit, roughly here, a little bit and look, see some of Henry's body still there. But another big problem. All right, We've cut now the lighter areas see good. And what we're gonna do with that, we're going to basically repeat the same process as we've done with Henry. So we're going to add a layer. Then we're going to almost put them on top, make a new group, rename this group. This is the light body. I'm calling that light body parts. Let's call it like that. And what did I type there? That's not body, is it? Thank you. Spell checking. Really good. Alright, like body parts. Now we need to make sure that our new layer is on top of the other one. This is going to be a clipping mask again because we want everything we do to stay on here now we need some highlights, some dark areas too. So we're just going to do that. And the first layer we're going to do is multiply. Let's see if we do everything we're gonna do at least multiply. We start with that. And we're going to pick a different brush for that. That would be the hatcher stamp here on top of that again, we're going to make that a bit smaller, about 1%. Then right away, we need a darker color and let's go with the body color for this one. So another real dark color, but the body color, and let's see, that would be. Some around there, Let's stamp that in. And of course, that would be some there now we can go, could have gone bigger here, but not just looks really nice datasets, right? And you go. Now we're not gonna do much with that. Shall we? Bits, extra bits on there? That looks good already see, that's makes it good. Let's add another layer. Writes another layer. I'm gonna do a clipping mask again, we're going to make this color burn. There you go. Alright. We're gonna do, give this some stronger edges. We're going to go to the, well, know, now that I've picked a stamp, Korean soft, we're going to use a bit darker color for that one. And we're going to use a Color Burn color. And there you go. Now this gives us an interesting color on that side too, right? Let's leave it like that. Alright, we don't need to do more of that. We're going to add another layer, and we're going to just add a highlight layer again, and we have another clipping mask. We're gonna put this one to add. Again, we're going to add a color to it. We're going to need a big stamp, soft. Let's put that one. We're going to need the same color as the underwear on the, on the color and we're just gonna add some highlights now as you can see, that is pretty strong right away. Let me put that slower because I want this to be like that. And we're going to definitely go the opacity on this one. Just a little bit. In me 14 percent looks good to me. I'm going to add another layer on top, just a regular layer that would be the last layer on here, make it a clipping mask. And this would be a normal, but we're going to lower the opacity right away to about 70 percent. And for some reason mine always slips to 69 when I have 70. And we're going to need that one, the scribbles. And we're going to need a light color that is good. Let's see if this adds Probably not, you won't see that now we need a really light color. We'll pick this color almost on the back. Yeah, that color. And 1% is good. And we want to blend in scholar a little bit. And it's stamps. So when you use it as a stamp here to blended in a little bit. Rights now, for these parts, height, Henry, we're not going to use the strong colors we've done here. We're going to leave this like this. So these are the light body parts. All right, well, that concludes this lesson. Pretty much cut the main body. We've got everything we need now. We just need to give him some personality. Let's go for those eyes in the next lesson. 8. Doing the Eyes and more: Okay, welcome to the next lesson. On top of Henry's body, we're going to do his eyes. His eyes are whites, Okay. Now we have a slight problem because we're not going to see the white of course. So there is white, but we're not going to see, so what we're gonna do to see the whites for now, temporary, we're going to add another layer. It's just a temporary layer. We're going to add that on top and we're going to give that layer. It is light-blue color. So I'm picking the light blue column. The next thing I'm gonna do, and we're going to go on with the colors. I'm going to select the color, drag it over. Now, wait, that didn't go. Drag it over, fill it. So now I can see here, right, these colors later on we'll remove this layer. Now, depending on your iPad, I don't know. You may run out of layers at some point that is not a problem. What you can do. And let me demonstrate that. And for that, I'm going to duplicate this. You don't need to do that, but I wanna make sure I can bring it back. If you have these groups, what you can do, you can flatten this to one image. If you're happy with all of it, then you can just click on it and you can say the Rename, we knew you can flatten this and what it does. It just makes one picture of this. These, these are his feet. And now it just makes one layer of dead end, but it keeps all the information we added to it, to all the layers on top, it keeps all that information, just makes one layer. So if you run out of layers, you can do that flattened some of the layers you don't need, but I don't think you're going to run out of layers yet, or hopefully not at all. So I'm going to delete this again. I'm going to bring that baggage can. We're gonna go to this layer on top? We're going to work on his eye number. Let's not do as I black, Let's do is highlight. All right, and now since I have some blue, I can follow the sketch much better. Let's pick the pencil for this. Writes about, Let's go 15 percent. It's white. And let's color this nicely. The inside roughly. And as I said already before, we're going to use different techniques. And this roughly make sure I'm not going outside of the lines. Right now. I'm going to lower, a little bit lower till 5%, about 50 percent. I'm going to zoom in and I'm going to add those layers. Now, this looks gray, but that's okay, is when we remove his top sketch, then we're fine Again. Rights. Right. They're all right. There we go. Okay. That would be the first let me check and wants some. Nice lines going down. Right? So let's hide his sketch for a moment. Right now I can correct a little bit more there. And I want a little bit more depth so that he really is round and on top of the brown. And that means we're going to slide this around. Rights. That is the first one. That would be his first I. Hello I have. Let's bring back his sketch and work on the second one. And let's make sure IS nice and white. Right? Henry, you've got some eyeballs. Well, thank you. Mentioned that makes life better, but I still don't see a thing. Right? You're right, Henry. Hang on. We're gonna do something about that in a minute. All right. Let's see. We're going to not that much. That's too much round this, a little bit nicer. To get rid of that alone like this patch around that a bit better day you go Now she soon back to his full fee. You get some nice eyeballs. All right, Henry, That's good. Henry. We need another layer and we're going to combine these layers. New group, we're calling this his ice. Ice and more. Yes, there are going to be more in this. We need that new layer on top of the other one because we're going to bring in his pupils. There we go. Same, Yep, the same pencil. And let's bring back his sketch again for now, right? And let's go to about 3%. And let's round that nicely and color it. Now, we could call on this. Yeah, you could do it this. Use a little bit bigger brush to color the inside, but for the outsides rights, they are a little bit too, right? There's one pupil will do the same here. I'm going to do the outline. And let's color this in. That is going better and don't go outside of your outline. All right. Good. Now you could erase. Look at that. Now he's a happy, much more happy fellow. Let's see, I want to erase not that much. Small brush some of that. And now bring that back. Just ALL right, there we go. Alright, that's nice. Now he needs some highlights in his eyes. And for that, what we're gonna do first, I'm going to lower the opacity. And I just only want to see this what's under it. And what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna use that eraser 1%. And that's good. And kind of bring back in a little bit of highlight, bit thicker at the top and one line to the bottom, and then a bit thicker at the top. Let's do it like that. All right, Now we're going to bring that to a 100 percent again C, and now its eyes are coming to life right away now. Nri, you're looking good. Now, its eyes are just big white balls. Now we're gonna do something about this. I'm going to add another layer. Oops, does not adding a layer on top of this one. I'm going to add a layer. I'm going to put that to multiply. And I want to add some shadows. And for debts, I'm picking this dark blue color here, not this black foreshadow, a dark blue color gets a way nicer range tint. Now we need a brush for that. Well, we could see pick this one and adipic shader to big pencil shader, but I don't want a big, definitely not big. Let's put it to free percent and let's see, just see what happens. Now. That is not definitely not what I want. And why isn't that what I want? Because I forgot something. Is it? This one needs to go under the eyeballs. Pope now made a new group. Don't do that. In-between. This needs to be, of course, a clipping mask rights now it's going to stick to the eyeballs. All right, This is too small, 3% gonna put the opacity down to about 50%. And shade this in a little bit like that. Here too. Just on the edge, okay. It's strong around the edge. There you go. Now. Okay, This want to hide the sketch she now is, eyeballs are way more lively. Let's do carefully under here too a little bit. Okay, and on the edge a little bit more. And let's do the opacity to about 10 percent. And blend this in theory little bit, it's only going to be very little bit. Just enough. Good. Now Henry C, Now he pops off the page now if cubed, right. All right, That's the ice Let's do on this same layer here where we have the eyeballs. Let's pick their black and let's do his eyebrows. And I'm gonna do is eyebrows on purpose, totally black. Picking the regular pencil for that again, please. Yes. Bring back our sketch and just draw in this. See the size 2 percent should be good. And I'm just going to draw the outline now bring DNS sides, right? Nice. And I'm gonna do the same with this one. And that is rights. Okay? And now he's got personality and look at that. Hey Henry, Let's use math to him. His mouth, but his mouth is under here. So we're going to do that's not in this layer under his body parts. We're going to add a layer. We're going to pick the whites and we're just kinda color this in regard this shape. And now we can go a bit there. We don't need to be accurate because it's under Henry's body rights. And now Henry's got a nice big smile. All right, Henry. But Henry, we need some shadow on that. So we need another layer on top of here. We need that to be multiplied. There we go. Let's see, we're gonna go back to debts shader, pencil shader or should we picked a soft shader? Let's go for the soft flat. Let's go for that shadow color. Let's lower this 1%. Let's see what's happening with 1%. This we make a clipping mask so that it stays on top of the white. And the right, that's too small as cough, for 2% at 0, 1, That's right away. A lot. Well, we can, we put that on multipliers. We need, we can lower the opacity. Let's do that here to getting a bit much mile Henry, right? Good. In that corner a little bit. That's way too much. So what we're gonna do, we're gonna bring back that opacity. Let's hide the sketch to about 40 percent. Yeah, that's about good. Writes. His nose. Let's add that one too. So we have this, we could make a group of this too, but for now, let's leave that here. Either more or go back to that, the black layer. We need his nose. Pick the black. And let's see, we had the pencil for that. Let's stick with the pencil. Henry's knows. Let's do the outline first. Now, that is not a nice outline. I'm not happy with that. That's the nice thing about working with and iPads. You just hit that undo and you get something like this. We're going to color in all the way. And we're going to need to bring a white highlights on top of it. We can't just now we can't erase because there's no white and red here. So we'll better bring in that whites. For that, we need another layer. Now, we don't want to have another layer. So what we're gonna do is we're going to pick that layer where we have that white eyes and more. For now, let's hide that. And now we can see exactly where we wanted the white. So I picked the white already from here, cut the same brush, and I'm going to just add some white under it. There you go. Nice. Now I'm going to bring back that top layer, but really lower the opacity so I can see where I'm going to erase and I'm just erasing a little bit. So to bring in a highlight, I'm not as big as the outline. I'm doing it a little bit smaller. Let's do the opacity all the way and there wasn't a good layer. All right, we were working on that layer. Okay, then I don't want that. Let's undo and undo. And now let's go for the right layer. Lower this and erase. And now we're getting something rights totally on the wrong layer of enjambment. I'm not sure. You might have heard the woman who just drove his big truck and had his music really, really loud. All right. Let's continue. But you may not have the microphone, may not have picked it up at all. Okay. We're going to put this opacity back. Let's hide the sketch for now and look. Now. See, that is pretty cute, isn't it? But we're not ready with him. Because hedgehogs do have spikes. We need some spikes we need to book, but which one can we going to do first? Let's do the book first. All right, let's do that in the next lesson. Yes, we've done the ice now, his eyebrows, his nose, and his teeth. And now we're gonna move to the book and we're gonna do that in the next one. Okay. See you in the next lesson. 9. Let's paint the Book: Welcome back. We're going to do the book. The book is going under Henry. Yeah, under his feet. On the first pass, we're just going to sketch in that book on add a new layer. And let's go for the book. And we're going to get the big pencil again. Depends, bake. We're going to get the color of the book. Now the color of the book are these in the back here? We're going to do the book itself, this color. And the pages. We're going to do this car, right? Let's start with that manner. Doesn't matter. Let's start with the book. All right. Let's see how big do we have him not to bake about 3%. We can go a bit bigger for the main area, right? We're just painting this in and since we're behind Henry and rides, all, that's a bit too much perhaps. Now here it has a little lower this a little bit going up to here. And let's cash around. And we're going to do the book. And now I'm going to get an eraser and I'm gonna go for this one. We need to get a bit straight like that. Good. Let's see if we missed some there. Let's put it a bit less. Alright, now, let's add a little bit there. And we don't want much of the background to get through it. And we're going to pick that second color. I'm just going to do that on top of this. And we're gonna do this slightly more accurate. So we might need a smaller brush. 1% rights, that's good. Go over that on the dash. And now we can go over this, right? K. And there's our book. How about that? That looks nice little picture here a bit. So let w is gone. Right there a little bit. Okay, For this one, we're going to need another layer and do an a plus. We're going to make a group of these two, so drag them onto there. So that becomes a group. We're going to rename that group. Rename this is going to be in the book, and that's it. This layer is going to be, let's see if we have it. All right. I'm okay with these spots there that some of that background confirmed that looks interesting. This is going to be a clipping mask, going to set this on multiply. And I'm going to do pretty easy with this. We're going to pick this color. And I'm gonna put my opacity down. And I'm painting this in. Little bit there. I want to make an edge there too. I want some shit. No, that's too much. Well, let's call it this. I don't like that. Snow or read a little bit more. Scope for 12%. That might be too much then at the brush doesn't pick up anything 15. Let's see where it picks up a layer. That's nice. Look, rights. I like that. All right. I might erase this and do that again. So I'm having it on 15 percent and my size two brush size is 2%. And I'm adding some, share them more quickly. And that is to make sure we quit. We also clearly see where the book is ending, where knots. And we need some shadow under here. And some shadow in this area around his foot. Right? Let's see. We're going to add some shadow there. We need some shadow right here in this area. And let's move up there too. And now I'm pressing too hard. Let's Move in this line here. All right, Let's do the back a little bit. And we're going to add some shadow there. Let's lower this one to 1%. A little bit of shadow, right? That. And as you can see, I'm doing it a bit rough and I want this there too. Let's see how we are. The sketch needs to go. Bears Henry's book. Now this is not really nice. I want to smudge this in a little bit. This is too harsh. What I'm gonna do for that is I'm going to use the smudge tool. I'm going to pick the big pencil shader. And we're going to lower the opacity till about 40 percent and we're gonna make it smaller, size 2%. Let's see if we can blend this in. Yes, that works nicely. Look here too. And let's see bit here too, under there to write here too. And we're blending this in around this edge a little bit. That's much nicer. There you go Henry. Enjoy your book. All right, See that looks good. Okay. So this line, I drew row, it should have come pit like debts, but we'll leave it. That's okay for now. Alright. You can correct that. Adding these lines more like this. Right now, Henry, that's your book. I'm not going to give the book highlights or things like that. Texture. Should we go for texture to try that? That's a gift that book some texture. And another layer under the multiply layer. And we're gonna do Coburn or an head. Let's go for an ADS layer. All right, then we need its original color back. This one. And let's go for a stamp. Should we do if you ever tried to fix them? Let's see what's now we're doing this fun. This is that, no, just the crayons of all right, We're gonna do that. Not so small. About, well, I'm having now 3% and we're going to hit that on there. All right, Now the book gets some texture that is way too strong. So we're going to bring that down a little bit of texture to the book day you go Now look at that, right? Okay, dad, oh, conclude the book scene. That looks nice on the book. Alright, not gonna do anything more about that. We're going to work on Henry's spikes, would do that in the next lesson. So I'll see you in the next lesson. 10. Drawing the Spikes: All right, welcome back. Henry is progressing. He's getting really cute, isn't he? But he needs some spikes. So let's see. We're gonna do the spikes on top of his body. Of course, I'm going to lower this book if you need to set before flatten some of these areas on top of Henry, we're going to do another layer, just a regular layer for now. And let's see, we want to pick the spike color. The base sprite color will be, let's do this color, that one here. All right, in the middle, we're going to use that as a base color for spikes. And what we're going to use for his spikes is the pencil. We're going to bring back his sketch if you haven't done that. And this is the area where the spikes corner, what we do first for loop. We're going to see if our spikes are big enough. I have it on 5% of that will be too small. Let's go for 10 percent and see what happens. That would make a good spike. Or let's go bigger, Let's go a little bit bigger. Let's go 14. Right now. Let's take that one. Good. All right, And what I'm gonna do is I'm just going to draw lines like this. Straight for now. Straight and an op here. I'm going to go. I need to be careful by the ears a little bit. We can go over the years a little bit, but not there. We're going to have to erase that later on. That would be his first spiky, spiky layer. All right, Now there's going to be more layers of spikes. And just like that, just draw the spikes in following his body a little bit as straight and then go around. And now here they are in front already a bit. Now I'm going to enlarge that pencil. And the rest, I'm going to draw coloring. And nowhere with this first layer might put this basically under his body. Let's do that or not gonna do this, we're going to make use of a couple of layers. Let's color this in and then that doesn't matter that we're going over the lines and little bit connects the spikes and not lose anymore, right? That would be his base color of his body. Now, need some I'm going a bit lower as you can see. The line goes to straighten this a little bit with his leg. Let's see, we're going to need this one to be under Henry's body. Now the easiest thing we're gonna do, we're going to just throw it into Henry's body. There we go. This one goes under Henry's body. Now that looks better. See, right, kinda lower the pencil a little bit and color it in a bit. Nicer. Now that looks good. Alright, that's it. That's the first one. Let's add another layer. Let's see, we're gonna do that on top of here. Yes, we're gonna do that on top of this layer. So under Henry's body, we're going to add another layer. We're not going to use clipping masks or anything. And we've gone and go for Henry's body color, C. And let's do that for the darker one, Henry's body, that dark color. So that is not at C, we use this color as a body. Then you have the dark color for putting this column. Now, let's see, we need those spikes back. What did we say? 515 percent. And that I wasn't nicer, right? And that is a next layer. And we're just going to add some more random spikes as another layer. And they're overlapping this outer layer a little bit. And I'm just keeping them pretty much straight. There were about and a couple there. That looks nice. Alright, now that the same color as Henry's body, Let's add a few here. All right, now that would be good for his base layer now is looking like a headshot isn t. Let's add some carefully to Act 2 over that so that he gets a bit more solium right now, or add some more volume to him right away. A bit there. Okay, Good. There you go. Now that would be Henry's basic body shapes. Now we're going to need some, another layer of spikes, but we need that on top of Henry's body. So we're gonna do that on here and we're going to go play with that dark color. Now. I'm going to say, let's go 14 bit lower. And now we're going to have spikes that will go on top of other parts. So if you draw them in like that, seed are going over his ears rights, and we are going to fall his body shape, but we're not going to go all straight with these. We're going to give these some different angles. And I'm just doing this a bit randomness. You can see at step 4 up here, up here, they're still straight to, hey, go now look at Henry. Henry, You're looking good, buddy. We need some more with the same color. No, not the same color. Which This column now we can't have that as an underlayer. We're going to pick that's reddish, that's too dark. We're going to go just with this column. And with our color circle. I'm going to slide that up a little bit to create another different tone. And that is, and add some more of these random lines. And I'm working on purpose on the same layer for now. All right. Henry here looking good. Let's height is sketch for now. But sketch, right? And now we can work on Henry. Let's see. What do we do. We're going to add another layer between these two. And let's go with a dark color, decide somewhere there. And we're going to add some spikes in between. That Kannada, it is more towards degree site as you can see, bananas. Oh, really, Okay. There you go. Starting to look like something. All right, and now we just need these there to connect the Rabbet or rough. Now, we need these to connect better to his body. So we need on top of it here another layer with that dark color, but then we're going to have the same color. So we're going to slide it over to Ted wave. So we get a light attend, put this 10% and add. Unless starting at his body at a couple mock, bid random bit, not all straight except for up here. See you now we're getting some and here too. Random a bit. But we want to connect. That's the main important thing. We want to connect those to his body, right? And now he gets nice and fully messy that perhaps a little bit there too. There you go, Henry. Now here, let's add a couple random there, right? And let's do that here too. On his body a bit right now he's getting volume. Not too straight, not to, but there you go. All right. Henry, You're looking good. We're happy with Henry. Well, let's add a couple here too. I'm pressing quite lightly and doing them a bit random to. All right. Now you can play their sum with this really few one to two hours. But let's leave Henry liking this henry, You're looking good buddy. Right now. You could do some dark shadows on this too, but I think we're okay with this little spots here. And let's do that with the dark color to adding just a bit of spots here and there on his body too few here and create bit interest. There you go. Now, Henry, you're done bunny, right? We've got Henry. Each cute, isn't it? All right, well, Henry is done. Okay, Well, enjoy creating spikes. Next lesson, we're going to draw the extra S. Yeah, let's call them extras. Good word for it. All right. See you in that lesson. 11. Painting Butterflies: We're going to work on the extras rights. What should we start with? Butterflies shot blasted about the flies were going to need a linear layer for that. I'm going to collapse all these layers. Let's see. We're having butterflies now. The butterfly is on top of Henry. So makes sure we're gonna get a layer on top of Henry. We're going to use three colors. So we might as well go for free layers right away. And let's make a group of it. And we managed to not make a group of it. Wow, day you go, finally. Alright, and the arrangement of this doesn't matter how they are. We rename this, this is going to be D Butterflies. Thank you, spellchecker. Okay. Well, I'm going to start with the body. I'm just going to use the pencil for this. The body of the butterfly, the butterfly calls, I hear this is body color. We're going to assume in, and I'm gonna say, this is on 10 percent, that is way too big. Now, let's go for 4% for his body. And I'm just going to color in his body rights. And we're going to do the wings on top of it. All right, that would be the first bar phi now is 4% good enough. Now that's too big for this. So let's lower this. Remember the 4%. Now what we can do, I'll leave him. Let's go for the other guy first. That's good. And let's say now, I don't need two of them. I just need one of them. That's the nice thing about Procreate, which is going to copy and paste this whole thing. So I show you another thing with that too. All right, Now we're going to need to lower this 2% and create as Antanas rights. And this guy up here where I, you're going to need some. And sentence two. Good. Now if you want to make the antennas really cute, what you can do is do a second line and then go a big begin like that. So start at the same point and then move outwards. And that makes the emptiness a lot cuter. Do that here too. And a second line up there and add some cuteness arrived. That is his body next layer, basically this color. I don't want the pencil for this. I want that big pencil for this. But I don't want it big, big. And now it is on 2% trip free percent is good, but only do the outside, okay? All right. Now I'm going back to even 1%. And I'm going to color it in. Do the outline first, then the color and in neatly. Okay, I'm not too worried about having a patent on this one. Outline it first again. Right? Now I'm kind of color it. And there's my butterfly. And look at him here a little bit. Okay. And it's now on top of that. I'm going to do a different column, but let's go Africa these legs to the other 1 first. Gonna go for the outline first. Now don't stop and hold your pencil because then this is going to happen. It's going to create a shape you can do. Always do undo the ego. My body is back. While I'm not, my body is body is back. Or her body. Right? This could as well be ladies, ladybugs know, butterflies that lady bugs. And we're going to color this in steakhouse, slightly rough. That's okay. Not going for the edges yet, because I might need to go a bit smaller to have some more control. Well, that is this butterfly, nice. This needs to be colored to that. Right? Now we're gonna go to the next layer. We're going to use that light colored shaded or stamp it. What shall we do? Let's try. Let's play with this. Okay, I'm picking D stamp swirl. And I want to see how big it is. It's pretty big already, right? And I'm just stamping it on their cute this, do this too. All right, Let's go. We can't go smaller than this. We don't want to do. That's alright. Kind of like it's, I don't want to smudge that with the big shade, a pencil. And it's on 40%, it's still on the 2% size. That's not enough. Opacity. I'm going to 62, what, about 60, 70 percent. Right now it's smashing in. A bit nicer. All right, that looks good. I want to have some HER2. Now these are cute. All right, do the same here to smudge this. Some reason, yes, there we go. I need to press a bit harder to get smudge as we go right. Butterflies, good. Might wanna get rid of PID of the spots. Too much, puts too much here. Yeah, let's go back to that underlayer. Go back to that original color. Let's take the, but the big pencil, but the regular pencil and whatever its sun, get rid of the spots. 6%. I've cut it now on Create a bit of a line. You go on the outline can stay rough as it is, but I want to get rid of some of these spots in here. Now that's better. And that 12 Paul writes, gonna do the same for the other one. Dose. Wide, wide areas that spend too much around the edge. Okay. That's better. All right. That would be my butterflies. With these butterflies, I'm done now. No, I'm not done. I don't know. Hang on. I need some more legs with the pencil. Writes, this guy here needs his legs back. Let's go back to the 2%. Let me make sure on layer doesn't really matter. I'm going to go for the brown I have depends on 2% and I'm going to draw his legs in, right? And an inch to connect a little bit better. Okay. There you go. Now he's ready. Okay, good. Now if this one, we've got these butterflies, if I'm happy, if you're happy with them, what you're gonna do is flatten this. So we're flattening this to two butterflies. We're going to duplicate this little butterfly, or we do. Let's zoom in a little bit. I want to move it from here to there, but make sure we have, we have flattened this. Get the selection tool. And I'm using free hand. You could do a rectangle to, or that would work too. I'm just drawing the shape around it. And I'm going to say here, copy. Now to copy it. Now I can say here paste and there is my new butterfly on a new layer. See that? Alright, now I de-selected it, so I just press the Select button. I'm moving this butterfly over. Now drift the green handle, That's the handle, the green line the top. I can rotate it. Move it till it's about where it needs to be. And I can press this button again. And there it is. There are butterflies. Easy. We're going to do the same with the flowers. Really easy conduced 01 flower. And we're going to just duplicate it and do some things with it. All right, There will be in the next layer, Just a new layer and we're going to use just one layer for the flowers. All right, we've cut the butterflies, we're gonna do the flowers now. But I'll let you do these butterflies first. Let's do that. And then we're moving on to the next lesson where we're going to add the flowers. And then lastly we're going to add the background and then we're done. 12. Adding Flowers: All right, welcome back. Let's do this flower. Let's add a new layer. I've done it already, just anywhere. It doesn't matter where it is. And we're going to draw the flower, we're going to use the pencil for that. I've cut it still on the pencil. It's 2%. Small. School for 5% probably as good flower colors here. And we're starting with the yellow. Now. We're not starting with, let's not do that now. Let's pick this very light cream color. And the light green color is for the petals. I'm drawing in the petals and making sure I connect them. That's my petals. So I've connected the petals nicely. Now what we're gonna do next, we're going to take this color, drag it over in there, and then it will fill it up. And that's done for us. All right, let's see. The next thing we're gonna do is under here. Now on top of it, add a layer, pick the yellow color. I'm going to keep the pencil as it is. Right? Wanna do exactly the same and fill up that flower. Now I've gone a bit outside, but that's okay. And since these and these are not connected, so now let's do add under here another layer. And we're going to pick the green, the flower greens on this. And we're going to start with this first color. I'm going to just do the same trace over this. And now I need to connect it under there. You won't see it. But let's do like that. See I've connected onto that. Because if I don't do that, don't connect it. What happens is then let me erase this for you. So I've erase this. And if I fill this now, and we're looking at this is connected battlefield is now you get this problem. Let's do and do it. I've connected it, I'm dragging it over and goes there. Now one little thing about that. I'm going to show you that this is good. If yours it might go even if you have close it all out. Yeah. Or it might not go neatly inside. What you can do for that is pick it up, fill it, let it fill. And now you see I'm holding it and pressing, you see here color drop threshold. And you can lower this. Or you can hire the snow, see if I have it too high, if you have it in a 100 percent, this is what happens. So you need to bring it back until it gets insights here that now I've got it till about 50, 60. Yeah, until you get inside. If it just pops all out, then hold it and slide it here until it just stays neatly insights, right? There's my flower. That's been boring flower, isn't it? Yes, it is. We're adding a layer, a clipping masking this, right? What we know and let not do clipping mask, Let's make it ourselves easy. Not clipping mask. We're going to make a group of these guys right? At that empty layer. I made a group in a group, we don't want that. All right, we want this guy to be above there. This is now becoming, so I have now a new group. If I'm calling this flower, let's do it right away. That's the flower. The yellow is on top. The flower itself is under it, and the green is really on top and one empty layer on top of the green and work on a clip mask. This one. There you go. We're going to pick that shader brush. Soft shader is good. I'm going to pick a darker color. This can go stronger. That's too small and we're going to have that brush eyes. 3%. I see, and I'm just adding where some shade would be. And now I need a smaller brush. And I'm going to add some shade around there too. Let's get rid of this sketch right now we can see what we're doing on the hair a little bit under there, a little bit now this is a bit rough, so let's take that big shade, a pencil shader, put it on 42 percent and on 68%, we already had that. Let's blend these colors in. A little bit nicer here too. Right now you get some nice shade and pushing this one in a little bit more. There you go. Now look at that. That is a lot more interesting flower, Let's pick that other color. That is a light color. And we're going to draw that light color on there a little bit on that edge. Oh, no, that's okay. And right there a little bit too. And now I'm gonna go back to my smudge and going to smudge this a little bit better, make it a bit smaller for this one, blend that in a little bit. And now you get a nice looking flower and you go, all right petals. We're going to do something about those two. Same brush that shade, a soft brush. But now we're going to get back to this petal colors, this darker color that is green, dark color. I need to put a layer on top of it. So I'm not sorry, that doesn't meet. I need to put a layer on top of it. Clipping mask. I will bring back my sketch. And what I'm gonna do is we're going to look at these outsides here. And with this color. And I'm just coloring, I may want to go slower 1%. And I'm just. Coloring, this would be a little bit, hey, go. All right, this one bit more on the edge to this one. Right? And let's hide the sketch again. Now we have that. I want to smudge this a little bit. I'll leave that on the same settings we had 16. Now let's go for 50, 50, and 1% brush size. So that we can make this a bit nicer. And that brush we're using here is still that pencil big shader, circular motion on create the edges a little bit ago. Now this bit strong, Let's make sure we don't get it that strong. This one will smudge over little a and this two right now. Okay, we could do that a little bit on the heart. All right, last thing. Add another layer. We're going to pick this one on multiply. And because we're gonna pick a different kind of pick that yellow. I'm having still the same pencil as clipping mask and add another clipping mask layer, clipping mask multiply same yellow or work. Why not? Because it's the same color. He said it works a little bit. See that, sorry little bit, but not strong enough. Let's slide this over a little bit. And now you see it works. That's better. Writes. All right, smudge this too. Right now it's got some form and shape day you go, there's the flower. All right, What we're gonna do with this one? If we're happy with it, we're going to flatten it. It becomes just one shape. And now we're going to just simply duplicate it and duplicate It's another time. So slides to the left and select Duplicate. And we have now free flowers. Now one of them is going to stay here. We're going to need our sketch back. One goes there, one goes there. Now, this one, it's the other way around. So we're gonna do that with this one. We're going to select that layer and we're just going to say here, horizontal flip their egos. Now we're just going to move it about there. Now that one is smaller. So we can, I'm zooming in so that you can see what we're gonna do. And we're going to just get one of these corners, make it smaller. Now, originally this is a different flower, but to save some time, we're just gonna do it like this. Now hit that button again, brights. That is that top layer, that middle layer we're going to do now, we're going to move that over two. So that select to move it to there. And now let's make it smaller until it pretty much fits and hit that button again. Let's hide our sketch and we'll basically, except for the background, we are done, right, Stay, go. Look skewed almost because we need that background. But the background is for the next one. I'll see you in the next lesson, the final lesson, where we're going to do the background. 13. Creating the Background: Let's finalize this. We're going to need a background. We can do the background in a couple of ways. And I'm going to show you two ways. And you just pick whichever one you like. Yeah, What we're gonna do first is we're going to this layer. We have now that color, that blue color. What we're gonna do is we're not going to get rid of it. We're going to just hit it. And we're going to say clear. Now it's gone, right? There's our hedgehog back again. Right? Now it's teeth are suddenly gone and half inches high, but don't worry, it will come back. We're going to select that light blue color that is there. Now, for a brush, we have a few options. We're going to go for the big shaders soft. Let's start with that one. We already have that selected. The big shader soft. We're going to put it on 53 percent. Around 50, 53. Good. Willing to use it as a stamp? Yeah. Me demonstrate that. This will be the first layer of the background. We're just going to stamp look at that. And it gives you and if you press hard and you get bigger as you press soft and you get smaller, it's going to give you a bit of that watercolor effect. Yeah, this is good, fine. What we're gonna do next is now you could do another layer. Let's do another layer for this. If you have the layers, if not, you have to have flattened some of these layers to get less than layer and to play with it. You could do this on the same layer, but if you don't like your effects, then you have to do it again and undo. So we're going to do a new layer for that. Pick this one darker blue color, same size on what I'm gonna do on wanna do a bit of insight. And second color and mix that in. Stamp a bit harder. All right. Softer there. And there's my second backgrounds now. Yours probably is going to look different than mine, but it's the fun about this background. All right, That's the first part. Now we need that green. What do we wanna do is we need another layer on here. And what we're gonna do for the ground, we're going to use the big shader, that's flat C, that's this one, the big shader. And how we're going to do this, the big shader is now the opacity is all the way down, so we needed put it to a 100 percent. And the size what about around 30 percent, 28. I'm zooming in and level. And now this is going to go over d, blue. And of course we need to cover because now these flowers are hovering in the air. That is a bit odd. We're going to paint it. We're not going to stamp this. We want to paint and I'm just going, oh, that's the wrong color. We're going to need a different color. Of course, those are here, the lightest screen on this one. And I'm just going to paint in. My background pit on the foreground, make sure I cover over w and create a bit of a line. There. There you go. Now he's sitting on day now. The thing is he is causing some shade, so we're going to get that dark color right away. And where he's sitting. We could do this a lot smaller. Let's go to about 10 percent and 11 percent. Then we have a bit more control. These flowers need a bit of shade right there. And that's too small for that, but for the flowers, it is nice. And we're going to go back again. So about 30 percent, we're going to do it a little bit like that. All right, Let's set and now to finalize it, what we could do is put this really smaller, about 10 percent, get that green color, the darker screen color. And let's make it really dark. And where he's sitting, painting in just under him. A little bit of shadow like that. And we can do with the flowers too. I'm going to 4% now. And just adding random. Now another random bit of shade extra, just under the flower day you got. And that's it. Now, he's done. All right. That is it. He looks really cute, doesn't know its eyes are back, his widest back, everything is there. There's one last, final touch we're going to do. And you have seen that already in the beginning of course, test that watercolor texture paper, but we have T selected. Now, we can select it now and look at that. There he goes. Now it just looks at if we have painted him. Now, if you don't like that, you don't have to do that. Of course. If you'd like it without like this, if you like it with it and do it like this. You could even say, I wanted less strong. This is quite strong now. And you can go 50 would still work at C, The Color Burn Intensity, there's a layer on our layer to make it a bit brighter. See, if you put this up and down this slider here under the color intensity than his tone is going to change. Yeah, watch him. Say he's going to get really bright, is gonna get less bright. Put the opacity down. Think I'm wanting to keep it at 50%. I think I like it just a bit of texture now through it. And we've cut the acute had shock, Henry, the head shock is done. All right. And that is it, subdue it without or with the texture that's up to you. Now the only last thing you do, you sign it here. However you do that, I'm going to sign it as your artwork now. And I have a brush for that. I make life really easy. So I'm going to sign mine on top of it. I'm gonna make sure I got a nice black box and I have a signature for that. So I'm going to assign mine punishments, brushes. There's my signature is going to be a really big there I am. I'm going to select that, rotate that. I want to have it in this corner. Make it small movie there. Right? And there you go, right? I might be a bit smaller. That's right. Teri, this, okay. And that is it. That concludes this lesson. But there is now a big, but of course there's going to be a little extra tree. It's done. Yeah. But we're gonna do a bit of a different background too. Yeah. A bit of an alternative and not for the ground, but for the sky. I want an alternative for the sky and show you that. All right, now, as you're done and if you say, I'm happy with this, then ma, just watch it for fun and don't do it. You can export your picture now exporting is this wrench than say Share. And you can share and you could do a apec or if you're going to print it out, pick a tiff, apec, just pick it, exports, pick where you want to just save image. And now it adds it to your photo row. Alright, so done that with mine and go for this one. See how I'm gonna do this. I am going to hide my signature and the paper for just a moment. And I'm going to hide these two layers. And I'm going to add a new layer on top of that K. The alternative would be, we're going to pick that a light color again. And I'm going to go for this one pencil big patent that's not a button brush I developed. And we're gonna put the opacity on a 100 percent. We're going to put this on, let's see, about 40 percent. Let's go. Jana's nice and big, too big. Around 40%. And we're going to cover right, like that. Now we'll look at that. And this has a pattern in it, so it just creates the pattern. And as you can see, if I go over that, it keeps that pattern. That's the nice thing about this brush. Now we're going to do that second column, that dark blue to the dark blue. But what we're gonna do here, we're going to lower the opacity. Now I can demonstrate you the dark policy you get this. Now that is for me that is too dark. So I'm going to do we're going to load this too. That's about 40 percent. And just coloring. Yeah. And then you can see create an interesting second pattern behind that. Right? And it's gonna keep our white. And there you go. How about deaths? Now that's quite different than the previous one, isn't it? And now I'm going to go back to my paper. And I'm going to go back to my signature and show you the results here. So with a little change of brush, you just suddenly get a whole different picture him. So that's my end result. I could hide that or if you like this one better, if you're crazy enough, just even combine them into something like this. Alright, well, we're closing the lesson here. I'm done with this one too. Let's export it. Hit the wrench, put Share, JPEG, exporting, save image. It should be saved to my photo roll now. All right, that's it. That concludes this lesson, and that concludes our work too, or right-skewed. Next video will be the project. Let's talk about the project. Yeah. All right. See you in the final video. The project. 14. The Project: Welcome to the project. All right, now, most likely you have just follow me along and you've created this. And for me this was a lot of fun to film this, to actually do this life. So I really hope you enjoyed this lesson, picked up some things, learn some things. Just had fun with painting this. And what I would like you to do for your projects. Now, if you have followed along, just fine. And I would love to see it posted what you have created. If you want to have a bit more daring and try this again. Yeah, I would say play with these brushes. If you want to do a project, what I will do is I would follow it. Now, let me show you that. Let me hide this stuff again. Dagger, we've got Henry's body back up. We keep his feet and his fin like that. What you could do is you could go back to this step ends. Then there's lot of brushes. I've picked certain brushes to get a certain result. You can just pick different brushes or even further, pick your own favorite brushes. And from here, start following the same steps, but use totally different brushes for it. They might get a totally different Henry than I have. And there is no organ, I bring Henri back. So if all steps you just pick different brushes. So then you get a whole different outlook to new, probably have a set of brushes too. I've used, I've created a number of brushes, so I get the result I want and you get some cool brushes with it. But just play with that. Yeah, even with this water color, you could try Henry in water column would look great. I miss something. Yeah, I miss my background taking up. All right. And his mouth is back there is Henry back. Yeah. So start from that base and then just use different brushes. Pick your brushes and do henry again the way you want. Just experiment with it. And I'd love to see that. Now if you just want to stick to my Henry, of course, data is fine to still off to see what you've created, because I'm pretty sure you're Henry is not looking exactly the same as mine. And I'm planning on creating more Procreate classes, planning on even creating one where I teach you how to do, how to draw Henry or different phases, how to go about that, and even use some different techniques on Henry. So I'll hope to see you back in a future class of mind. Or if you want to learn some traditional work, then of course I've got plenty of classes here on skill share. Alright, thanks again, and I'll hope to see you again.
