About This Class

In this class I will show you how I create my ink and color illustrations in Procreate®, using my iPad Pro® and Appple Pencil®.  I´ll show you the brushes I use, the basic exercises that will help you get used to inking in Procreate®, and I´ll go through my process of setting up the document, creating the basic shapes and outlines, colouring it in, adding details and shading it. I will even share with you my trick to make the colors look cohesive. So join me and let´s start inking!

A basic knowledge of Procreate is desirable, if you have never used Procreate® before, reading it's User's Guide will solve any doubts you have (you can download it HERE)

I love mixing ...
