1. Get to know Procreate: Hello, everybody. My name is Karen. See Oka. I'm a graphic designer Digital illustrator, Fine artist. And today I'm gonna show you how to use procreate for to make a lovely illustration. You don't even really need to know how to draw. But by the time you're done, hopefully you'll be able to know how to use a program to make something beautiful. So thank you so much and we will see you inside. 2. Learn color and layers, start the drawing: Hi, everyone. Let's get started with procreate. And when you open the application, this is what you see. And I'm just gonna go right up to the top right corner and touch this the plus button to create a new canvas. And you can create a custom canvas, which means just basically putting in the dimensions that you like, or you can select the ones that are already there. Some making my 2000 pixels by 2000 pixels and 300 dp I and I'm just gonna name this procreate. Um, tutorial done. I probably renamed that later, but we'll see. Okay, now that that canvas is already inside of your gallery Okay, let's get started. I'm going to import an image that I took from my garden. So I'm just gonna go up to the wrench and you could see um, right here. I mean, share. I'm gonna go to image, and I'm gonna say, insert a photo. I put all of my photos, um, in my favorites I'm going to use I'm gonna use this one right here, and you could see it imported right into my procreate on a layer with two fingers. I'm making this larger and having it fill my screen. Now my iPad pro is a 10.5 inch, not the 12. Um, I like it, cause if it's in my purse, Um okay, so I'm gonna just click off that selection and go to the top right corner, and I could see my layers If I press down the layer one, which is my photo, I'm gonna rename it Photo P, H O T O and Awesome. And your background layer. You could change the color in your background layer by just tapping on a color in your palate or, um, anywhere, but I'm gonna keep my white. And every time you open your iPad, um, you're layer pallet, you're gonna find a background layer always there. Okay, so, um, that's all we need. Now I'm gonna create another layer by hating the plus sign, and I'm just gonna zoom in on this a little bit with two fingers you consume, and I'm going to take my photo layer and hit the end. I'm just gonna drag down to be a little less capacity so that I can draw on top of it. Now, remember to go up to your layer two and rename this, uh, drawing. And this is where we're just gonna draw our outlines. I'd like to keep naming my my layers, because when we export this, it's going to be exported to photo shop where you could do more work on it if you like, and keep everything beautiful for future use. All right, now I'm going to go into my brushes. Now, I've created lots of brushes and procreate comes with so many brushes. You know, um, if you just go through them, you can see has charcoal and I do pastel work. So I'm gonna experiment with that one a lot. Um, just anything you could think of is in here. So they come with sketching, which is, like, pencil and just normals sketching tools. But I like thinking for this, and I'm using the studio pen, and you could see that it has that little thing on the right top, which means I changed it somehow. And you can also see that I have two of them. I have won a pyre and I want a lower. So I kept one normal. So the way you do that is like if I used pro creates studio pen. I would tap it to the swipe it to the left, and it would duplicate it. And then I would work on this one so you can see this swipe. It's the left again. And delete that one. Yes. Okay, so let's open the studio pan that I created now. Sometimes I would rather not keep my my altered pens in where the ones that came with procreate cause you know, you might make a mistake so you could easily take something that you created and move it to anywhere is not going to stick this over something. I called my class and it should pop in there, right here. So there it is. So now let's look at the studio Panama click on it and would open it up. And if you have the spacing bar, you could see that it's made up of little dots and the street line really is a great tool to help you with your The way you draw could be a little Jaggi. And this just smooths out your line as you're moving. You're I pad pencil. Now, Jeter, just like, changes the grain. We're gonna go to the source but in And you could see that it's a little soft, this pen, and it's using a blank, um, green source so you can go anywhere is and get a new grain source that you may Oregon swap it from the photo library, which comes with Aton of different brushes to go with. Alright, some good. I'm happy with that because I want it smooth. But I don't know if I'm happy with the softness of this pants under swap this 1 to 1. That is hard. All right, let's try that. It looks pretty good. So I'm gonna go to my stroke again, and I want to maybe taper a little bit. So I have practice it over here. I'm gonna go to my palette and select a different color. Yeah, I'm gonna go up to my layer, and I'm just going to start drawing now, actually looks pretty good. Two taps with your fingers and it, um, it will undo what you've done. Okay, let's start drawing tap on my later make sure I'm in my drawing layer, and all I'm going to do is Tracy. You could see this is too fat, so I'm gonna go over to my right here, and I'm going to make my stroke size smaller. And that looks pretty good. Two taps and it goes. And now also going to do is trace my image and the pressure of your pen that if you press down on your pen, your lives will be thicker. If you lighten up with it, it will become so if I press harder so I get a thicker line. And if I now I'm not thrilled with that, so I'm just gonna undo it and start over and try this again. So you want to kind of, naturally make it a little heavier. We're just like calligraphy. The edges might be a little thinner. The bottom to give it a little weight would be a little sicker. Okay, guys, I'm just going to speed up my drawing. I'm just gonna trace around all of the pieces of my butterfly. Sometimes I zoom in and I wanna make sure that I, you know, don't leave any little spots just connected. And I'm just gonna go through all of the shapes of his wings, come back 3. Coloring the flower: Okay, we're back. And my drawing is now finished. And also going to do now is zoom in and I'm using two fingers to zoom in. And I'm just gonna go around with my eraser, and you could pick out which brush you want for your eraser. And I picked a monoline that I created. Um I like it because it's just plain, um, and it's also a hard edge. So I'm just gonna go back and just erase things that I think are not perfect. Make sure you're okay. We gotta make sure you're on the right layer. I want to be on my drawing later. I do that all the time. A kind of he still didn't open going my dry layer. There we go. There we go. Now it's gonna work. And then I look for gaps that if the line is not hitting all the way to an edge and I go to fill it, it's gonna It's gonna bleed out over the edge into the next adjoining areas. So I don't really see too many. This one right here might be a problem. I'm gonna make sure I have a black, um pen and was gonna go ahead and tap that I'm not too concerned about the inside the butterfly, um, area is because it's gonna flood with blacks. I'm not concerned about my line. Work is much. I just want to make sure there's no gaps. Okay, that looks pretty good. And when I go to fill, we'll find a gap for sure. So, um, I'm pretty happy with this. No, what I want to do is going to my layers, and I'm gonna duplicate that layer. I'm gonna turn off my drawing later. I'm gonna rename this one colored. So there. So we're gonna be coloring this layer. I like to keep my line work separate on a separate layer so that if you make a mistake, you can always go back. Or you might want your line work for something else, maybe want to give it printed out. Let your kids color it like a coloring book. So that's great. Um, so now what we're gonna do is I'm gonna close this. I'm gonna open up my photo layer. I'm going to tap on my top right circle there, which is our palates, and open our palates up when you see this palette symbol on the bottom, right. You want to just go up to the top and hit the plus. We're going to create a new palette based on this image I'm setting as my default because we're going to use it in this image. It's gonna be readily available while we're working. Lets me name it too. Butterfly done. That's good, right? And now, if I were to go into my image and hover, you could see that I have this ping. And if I just grab that pain and tap, it goes inside of the palate. I'm gonna go to the orange and do the same thing. And I'm gonna go try to make my color color hues in the same area. So it's easy to work with. So pinks, pinks and values together is always good. It's a nice color. So exactly same color was get a different value here. Here we go. So I just go different places, and some of them are really similar. But some of them are not. But you want to get as many as you can. So you have a really natural looking image. Now I have to in tooth of my lighter colors of orange here that are just about the same. So I'm just gonna get rid of one by hovering over it. Actually have to go into a actual palette to do that, hover over it and you see, delete, delete it. And these two are kind of similar by Rufus Brown went up, so I'm just gonna grab it and move it to where I want it. Move this one over. Remove this one up. Don't leave it like that for now. So number to grab some green. We're gonna go back to my palette and I'm just gonna chop the green in and grab a bunch of greens. Greens are always hard color in nature. There's so many of them. I usually like to mix a light, um, cool green with a warm green to make it look as natural as possible. So I have a lot of greens here. I think I need one more. Let's do one more sort of a Kelly green type of. Okay, we are gonna leave it like that. And then there's some dirty colors in here. I don't know if we'll use thumb like a little muddy colors and put them over there. Sort of pink with this one here. Yeah, a little bit different, right? Right. So now I'm just gonna go back to our palates. I'm gonna look at the disc. This disc palate is pretty cool. Um, you could obviously go all the way around to get the hue that you want, And so I like this bright pink, but you can see up top in the corners. Not really bright pink. If I double tap on the pink, it will bring it to the edge and you'll get the very bright pink you put here. There we go. If I tap the white area a little bit gray double tap and it brings it to the edge and you get a bright white, which we need a bright way. And I'm also gonna do that for the black double tap. You're gonna get a black. So now we pretty much have our palate ready for our butterfly illustration. I like working in the classic palette better. So if I, um I pick a color and I don't like how bright it is, I can just bring it over to the light and bring it down a little bit into the shadow and, you know, you can get a lot of variation. I could see exactly where it is. And if you need to see the number miracle value of it, you go to to value. And it will tell you the Hexham a decimal, the RGB in the H s B, which I never use the HSB I just use the other two. It does not give, you see on my k, you would have to bring it into Photoshopped and change the color mode to see him like a after that. Okay, so I went back to my classic palette, and now I'm going to go up and we're gonna go to our color layer. I'm gonna make sure it's on. I'm gonna go back to our photo layer and just bring that down. Perfect. Now let's go back to a palette. I'm gonna grab the black, and we're just gonna grab the black and drag it over, get over and drop it. I think I'm on the wrong there. No, my mom right there. So it just filled in that area and you could see if I had any gaps in there. Um, it would have filled in some of those circle holes or whatever. Um, I'm gonna go do that. The same Pacific up works good. I guess they did it right. There's a little tiny gap right there and right there. That's really pretty. Yeah. This one right here. Sometimes you can't get in that. It does really zoom in and then bring it over. So some of it didn't feel because it was touching. And I'm just gonna fill that in with a pen. Just go in there, built with a pen. All right, That looks really pretty. And look at some Doesn't keep doing that with my color. So I'm going to grab that dark pink color. Oops. And I'm gonna drag that into those areas. Now, this is gonna be kind of a flat drawing. Oops. Sorry about that. Yeah, I thought he turned off my notifications that out. So I'm just gonna keep adding this dark pink and my lighter pinks. Right now we're just making everything flat, and so far, so good as faras. Oh, that one feel because I had a bath in it. I'm sure have the edge get another color. And I already filled someone I'm like. I want that one a little bit lighter, and as long as it's solid, it will. I feel that whole thing. You will also feel something that's not solid, but it will just grab everything that's basically touching together. This far, the texture is concerned. Um, I think I want actual a little bit lighter than this. I'm just gonna move this. I'm gonna save this way and grab this color and just grab a few more and groups. I love that double tap to undo so easy. And I find myself double tapping on my phone a lot because of this program, and I find myself double tapping. I like photographs. I don't know. I think I'm nuts. So, um, I'm gonna grab this color again. No, it looks pretty good. I'll leave that for now, cause we could always change. We could always change our color. We could change your mind later on. Very. The Xenia flowers are very much lighter underneath and more vibrant on top. So look at where we're getting very close to being, um, finishing up our image here now. I didn't close up the bottom. That's a pretty cool the code. I'm gonna grab the screen and fill that up. It did feel because it was touching the bottom. I'm gonna get, um, a little lighter green, I think in there I like to very ate my greens so that you wish Green in just a little difference. Lips. I hit the back. Double tap, double tap. I think that looks pretty good. Here we go. All right. Now, if I turn off my total there, you could see have a lot of my painting down. He could say I missed a few places, and so I can just put this back on and continue. Sometimes I just do what I want. Where is the color? So keep hitting the outside edge. You must think that little one. These ones? No, I think they're white. Them up. Go away. What? I turned my notifications off. That looks pretty good. Now I'm gonna grab black and just fill out area there. Look, there's another little gap right here. So yeah. Now where I'm just tidying up, these marks didn't fill Cand. Now we're going to wait. Fill in all the little tiny dots and I'll go ahead and do that and come back 4. more color and painting with brushes and layers: So here have it mostly colored. But I know that some of my black my whites are not filled in. And I'm kind of lazy, so I don't want to go back and forth grabbing that, um, Phil, someone would just change my background color to a dark color. Now I can see everywhere where it's not filled in. So I'm gonna go back to my cut my color layer. I'm gonna hit this select tool you haven't on automatic. I'm gonna just zoom in. I'm just gonna try to grab the black so you could see it. Grabbed everything that is colored in right now. I'm gonna hit thes two but two arrows pointing to each other, and that's going to invert it. Now I'm going to go up to my colored layer and fight go up to this layer and I shut off everything else. You should be able to see what is selected and right here. I put the red behind it so you can see that in color and everything. So I'm gonna grab my brush, grab the white, and well, uh, I just get to paint in all those really quickly instead of just grabbing you know that pallet and it's a lot easier. It looks like a painting behind it, doesn't it? It's not just so I feel like procreate has been kind of a game changer for me. I have been doing illustrative work for many years for a graphic design work, different clients. So I went out of the I went out of the lions, there was gonna double tap it. So, um, I've had some jobs where I've had to do a Siris of illustrations for big low T the past few years and they take a few months to do it's verb presentation. And I was using illustrator exclusively, and I had to do a lot of portrait work because they're like we creating memories or that kind of thing. So this year I had this procreate and it just streamlined my work flow a lot, and it saved me Hours and hours of drawing and illustrator record just draw by hand here with my photographs, um, of people And, um, it made me very happy. So I'm happy to share this with you and help you to learn it to make your workflow easier to. So now, as I'm feeling this, you can see that there's a lot of gaps that I need to go back and fill. So this is this is why I put that red behind there and, you know, just a contrast in color so you can see what you're doing That will definitely show up in print work. So you really need to make sure that it is old building. So I'm gonna keep my red there, and I'm going to take my black, go back to my Oops. I made a mistake here. I put my, um, that color on a separate layer. So what I'm gonna do is in a drop it first behind that layer and see, that does any change. And it was a little bit of a change. And now I'm gonna do is take this layer and merge down. And so now I just made those two layers one layer flatten those two layers together. If I were to combine down, then it became a group. And the line drawing is now underneath that color layer and then close the group. You can see it's all together and you could rename your group. Um, and I'll rename this art. So I do like to group things. It makes it easier when you're doing Photoshopped This well, you exported to photo shop. So now what I'm gonna do is just zoom in again and with my black pen on the small side, just feel in all of these No bits. They will definitely show up in the print. If you were to print this so you could see there some light missing too. So you can just go in there and just sort of, you know, um, fix what you need to fix. Make it perfect, cause it all should look pretty much like this and not like that. And this is gonna take a little time, so I'm not gonna bore you with it. But you can see exactly why would do this. Just make sure your brushes not too big. And you're, you know, swelling up the the holes that you actually want there. And this is a good time to even, like, tidy up some of your little circles. You little dots on your your butterfly. Much better. There's little red mark. Here's a red mark. We'll just grab this white. So what I love about this is I could just switch the call are really quickly back and forth to what I mean when I'm using. So I want to race that right there went out of the line, my racer recent. So basically, you're just hiding up. It looks pretty good, much better. All right, let's get rid of that red color and make it right again. And that looks quite lovely. Beautiful. So the next step we're going to do is you may want to keep it this way, which looks really great, but maybe you want to add a little bit of variation in the, um colors and make it a little bit more natural, or like a watercolor, a little texture, adding real texture. So in the next video, I'll show you how to do that. 5. Add texture : Now that we've colored herpes and are layers palette, we're gonna duplicate our color layer and we're gonna rename it to textures. Then we're going to uncheck the color and just stay in the textures menu. Now we're gonna kick my selection tool and make sure it's on automatic and not on free hand . And I'm going to lightly drag across all of my pedals on the underside of the pedals. And since they're all flat, they will select. If they were not flapped, just parts of it would select wherever places were touching. So I'm gonna go into my brushes and I'm going to select and watercolor brush that I like. It's glazed, and, um, it looks good. So what I'm gonna do is grab a lighter color and with a paint, I'm gonna make sure my paintbrush is a good size. I was gonna paint in some of this lighter color into the darker color, and I'm just making strokes that are going the same way as the pedal just to give it to mention, and I'm gonna grab a darker color. You could do that by holding down and do the same thing in the lighter pedals the lighter parts of the total. And I think it just adds a little flare. Little growth lines, veins, whatever you wanna call it, you like that and just go with the direction of the growth. It looks pretty good. So now if I d select this, it's got a little bit of a texture thing going there. I like that. So I think I might punch it up even a little bit more. So I'm gonna grab this lighter color, and I'm just gonna grab a few of the darker ones. Hey, that really I'm surprised that really grab the whole thing's That's awesome. So I'm just gonna add a few more, even smaller. Okay, let's see what that looks like. That looks pretty good. Great. So now I just selected a few more areas again of the pedals and going to add some shadow to that. I found my favorite wash brush, and I'm gonna go in and add those shadows lightly. And I'm also gonna use my smudge tool. But since I selected these layer this layer without selecting the black lines, this much tools not gonna bring in black, which would otherwise have brought in black from the work. So it's good to have those those items selected separate from your line work for this kind of, you know, shadow work. So do I need any more? I think that I can actually live without it. Pops it just enough. So I'm gonna go into the do the same process inside the butterfly. So we made a separate layer, and I tend to forget somebody will back to my texture layer, and then I'm going to select inside the boat of black. Oops. Yeah. I want to do that same texture technique that I did in the last one. And we're on the textures. We're gonna go back to the other uses what glaze, Maybe let's try that one. You pick a darker orange, they make it kind of small. And I'm just gonna Yeah, there we go very lightly. Uh, some lines because the butterfly has texture in their wings, just like the flowers dio it will just pick the lighter color and go into the darker colors . I thought that was a little dark. Now the watercolor brushes. If you look at the watercolor brush, the wet glaze brush, it is wet plays and It also has probably multiply right here. If you want to just paint on top and not have it multiply, you can hit normal back because right here on my image, it was it was multiplying and it wasn't really happy with that. So I'm just gonna grab a lighter color and go over with the same brush You can always bring down Europe ass ity, Not your brush size, your capacity. So to add, it's kind of like lazing views the opacity, but okay, I'm kind of happy with that. I'm going to There you go. Very nice. So it just gives it a little bit more dimension. So if you look at this compared to the flat, it really made that pop a lot more. So now we're just gonna go into the bottom green section. Oops. We on the right here on the texture layer. So if you're having trouble selecting a colored area, just go back to the layer of your drawing hungry line drawing, and then you could select it much easier there in the spaces. Maybe. Um, yeah, that's OK. So now I'm going to grab go back in my texture layer, turn it back on, and I'm gonna grab this like, we're gonna make it just slightly lighter, Okay? Somewhere in there, and I'm gonna go back and grab My craze is okay, and we're gonna do the same thing at these lines. These are too big. So when we get a little bit smaller because the the flower actually had these lines of growth on it, and then I'm gonna go back and get the wet wash, which is right here and go a little darker. Grab that color and I'm just gonna slightly give it a shadow. Awesome. There we go. And you could even put a little bit down the middle you like, Just very lightly. So never gonna grab a little bit more of those leaves. We're gonna go back to a drawing level, because for some reason, I wasn't able to grab, Isolate thes otherwise, and we're gonna do the same process over again. Go back to the texture layer, go back to our wet glaze and really thes air lighter. So I'm just gonna use that darker color personal. I'm going to give it a little shadow, you know? I'm gonna give it some line work and they will get the blaze wash brush, and we'll just let the give it that tiny shadow and let it go. And that looks pretty good. And let's just pick the last few. Okay, lets see Will pick. Oops. Let's see if they'll pick with this. No. So I'm gonna go back to my drawing layer. Grab that and pick that one in that one in that one. That one. And we're still on our our washer. That's fine. But at a little teeny bit of wash to that. There we go. And then I'm gonna go grab the wet glaze, bring it smaller, and just give it some on line work, Rico, and we'll close out of that. And that looks pretty good. I want to just add a few lines to this one. You can always add more detail, like the water colors. You start off very loose. Then you gradually add more and more. So now you can see now why we did this layer separately. I'm going to merge it down by, and this is gonna flatten this to texture layers. I'm just gonna merge it down and you could see it's like that. All right, thank you. And, um, the next section we're gonna do the background and maybe add a little type and learn a bit more about brushes. We'll see you in the next section. 6. Creating a background: So now we're gonna put in the background image. The background colors are atmosphere, if you like. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to add a new layer, and I'm going to go into my brushes. And I'm just gonna go into our watercolor brushes and collect hit wash and this precious pretty good right out of the box. So I'm gonna pick a pretty green color somewhere in there. And it's just supposed to look kind of like, you know, behind the photo. And I'm gonna pick a pretty blue color. So if I just slide over, I'm in the same value, But I think I wanted to be a little bit on the lighter side. Yeah, well, even lighter. There some around there. Just a pretty sky blue. It was good. Lightly tap with this brush. Pretty right. Do some white showing through comes in watercolor. We really like that sparkle. So now I'm going to do is add yet another layer. Go back to my watercolor. I'm gonna grab these watercolor flicks and I want a pretty big I'm just gonna flick across the page here. Some another do one in the green, grab the screen and do the same thing. Come out, Wait in some areas. Okay, Okay. I like that. Now take this layer of our flicks and we're just gonna go to adjustment Layer and Ghazi and blew it. And it looks like Boca or something. Right? And we're not blurring the watercolor layer below Onley blurring the flicks. Uh, we name this flicks clicks. There we go. And we're name this its name this sky sky. Awesome. That was super easy, right? Okay, so now we have all of this in our layers and we're good to go. I love it. Let's make a little new layer above it, and we'll write something up there with a calligraphy brush. 7. Typography: everyone. I think now we can go on to making some lettering a little quote for our beautiful little illustration. And the way we go about doing that is the creating of there. And I want to turn off our art layer, and I'm gonna go up to my brushes where I created a grid. And I'm just gonna pop that Grudin into my layer because And one use this to make, um, it's easier just to have the line work there when you're doing typography. So I'm also gonna take my brush and go back and get the brush I'm gonna use, which is gonna be this brush pen, and I'm gonna get kind of small. And then I'm just gonna make some diagonal lines like this down the page. And if you bring your lying down and you hold it, you can make a perfectly straight line and move it anywhere. So I'm just gonna do just kind of a slight There we go. I'm gonna do it again a couple times. Just what's even I'm just gonna keep doing that. Just a few just It keeps my, um my angle of my typography going pretty much, um at the same slant. Okay, that's pretty good. Okay, so I think I'm going to write is change can be beautiful. So I'm gonna up my brush pin, and you can use any color brown or just switch it to black for now. And I'm just going to start When you do your down strokes, you want a press harder. And when you do your up strokes, you want to let let up on your pressure. So dio change looks pretty good. Gonna do. I'm gonna do beautiful. And then we'll do Can because I want to make my point size a little smaller, so it's too beautiful. I'm running out of room. Okay, so we have to make this a little smaller. I only have, Ah, 10.5 inch iPad. So sometimes I wish I got the bigger one, but it wasn't in my budget at the time, So, um Okay, so So they were beautiful again. Okay, So I'm not trying to perfect right now, but I'm gonna try me better on my next flow, and I'm gonna do can be at a smaller point size down here. Here we go. Okay. Um, do a different kind of be maybe so. Like, that would be kind of fun. Okay, so, actually that And now I'm going to take my layer, and I'm just going to make your passivity lower. And I feel like my brush stroke is a little on the thick side. I'm just gonna get a slightly thinner. But I like the letter spacing. Um, and I could see I always I always go off the line. So why did I have a grid? Because I'm not paying attention. Okay, there we go. So, back in the day, I used to before we had computers and I'm aging myself. We used to do Margaret cops, and I did some, you know, layouts for Poland, spring and different water companies, period. Lindt, chocolate and all these all of them had hand lettering. And I had no idea back then that it would be so popular now, because I really didn't like doing it back then. It was hard. So, um OK, so let's go on and do our main one now. I'm gonna go to the layer. We need to be on new layer and start over. Okay? It looks pretty good. No. Two beautiful so heavy on the down stroke light on the upstroke dot There let me do that over again with the dot first, and then we'll cross that t and I will to the can be And I like that be Oh, no, that be through this again, Okay, Everything I don't like, it's my little a little mistake over here. But you know what? Because, Except I was gonna straighten it out and just going with an eraser and just tiny racer, you could actually erase it like that and start over. Okay, so just gonna go. There we go. I'm gonna make that noise. It always helps when you make the noise. Okay? I'm pretty happy with that. So now I'm going to turn off the other layer. I'm gonna make this an outfall layer. I'm gonna change my color to color. I like it's gonna be somewhere unit coming. Any color. Let's just go over pink just for now. And then we're just gonna go to are we color and tap every color. There it is. Fairness. Okay, so now that we've re colored, you can change your color to anything. Give me a little bit of a hard time, but I kind of like this, um, sort of grayish blue color. I think that looks really pretty. And I'm gonna go with that. Okay, So now let's go back to our layer. And we will not duplicate this because I just never liked to lose my original. Can she need it for something? Let's just make So, um, that's years of having clients say, Oh, I kind of like the last version you did. So that's why I do that. So I'm gonna take this beautiful, actually, take the word change, and I'm gonna select around it with my free hand selection that I'm gonna hit the other selection tool and move it right about here. And then I'm gonna do the same thing with the can be. I'm going to shrink it down a bit. Groups, Not that little. There you go. I'm gonna bring it right in here like that. I like that. Awesome. So I think the other thing I want to do is get the word beautiful and going to groups that's gonna slip that other word. So you gotta be careful that you just keep it on the one word that you're working on number . Just hit. The selection does put slightly. It's slightly bigger. You go. And you could just keep playing with it. Until you like how it's fitting together and flowing whatever you like. Okay. Yeah, I'm good. Movie word change one more time, Okay. Just slightly, slightly more centered. I kind of like that when we leave that. And now I'm going to grab the whole thing, and we're just squish it down. It's just like two fingers. And you could just move it down and size it. And then I'm gonna put back on my art layer and secret lands. We're gonna select it again and just move it where we need it. There you go. Like that. That looks pretty good. So thank you for watching. And on the next video, I'm going to show you how I made that greed and other brushes. Okay, 8. Butterfly brushes: welcome back. And I would like to show you now how to do some more creative things with our illustration that we just made. So let us go to right now I have my art selected and my color illustration selected. So they're ago, and I'm going to go up to the wrench and I'm gonna click on copy campus. Then I'm gonna go to the brushes and would create a new brush. And I'm going to just hold down the shape source. And until you see the pace and paste in that gray scale, then I'm going to go to the great source and swap from pro library, go down and find the refined. Not that one. I'm sorry. Um, go back to source. That one might be kind of cool, but, um, slap from source library, and we're gonna go to the blanks. There we go. Now we're going to invert the shape. That's awesome. They were gonna general, we're just gonna max out the size of our butterfly. They were gonna go to stroke stroke, and we're just going to space it. So there's only one butterfly. Now I'm gonna go back to my art layer and turn that off, create a new layer and let's test out our I'm gonna make a little smaller. So fits on my page. There we go. That's pretty awesome, right? So let's go ahead and make a new brush. Let's name this brash gray scale grayscale butterfly. Awesome. Now I'm gonna turn off this one, and I'm going to go back to my layers. Turn it off, back to my layers. That's just do just the plain Leinart. Do the same thing. Copy the canvas. Go up to your brushes, create a new brush. Select the shape source. Paste it. Swap from for a library. Find the blank. Awesome. Now we're going to go to back to the source. Invert the shape General Max out the size. Go to stroke. Space it out. Awesome. Let's turn off the art layer again. Let's go make a new layer and let's see what that looks like. Beautiful. Now, if you don't like the color, of course, you can always pick out a new palette color if you want. You know anything and redo your stamp, or you can go over to your adjustments and do a hue adjustment like this, which is pretty cool. Any color you like. Three. Go. And now what I'm gonna do is this could make it more in the purple mode. Then I'm going to do you select that and I'm going Teoh, um, you can you layer, I'm gonna grab that darker pink purple. I'm gonna fill it, and I'm just gonna bring that layer above. And now look at it. That's really pretty. Or you can make it a You know, a screen that's beautiful. And I can see you using this on. Maybe, you know, on invitation, a wedding invitation or on your phone, um, your phone or you are wallpaper or just anything that you can think of to print from this. I think it's really beautiful. Um, okay, now, you can also go back and grab your your color. Let's grab the color texture one, and we're gonna do click duplicate that duplicated. I'm gonna move it above out of the group. Um, just wait'll like, messed up. Anything else? Yeah. Let's just see what it looks like when we change the hue on this. I mean, you can just look, it could be green butterfly. Um, you do it that way which is really pretty. That's really pretty. Or you can also do the color balance, which means you change the highlights. We go a little bit more control than made tones. I mean, you could just play with this until you find what you love and then the shadows. So this is why I love procreate.
