1. Intro: Hi, everyone. It's Simone Sloan. From the vindication of calligraphy here, welcome to my new skill shared class on how to design the full ZX and procreate. In this class, you will learn how to design for six in your own style, using only brushes native to procreate. So nothing you need to purchase or make it besides the what it's already included with the software. Basic knowledge and appropriate software is a plus. But you know, you don't have to do know too much, and you can download the app from the APP store. There is a cost involved, but is a one top feet and no subscription required. The class is suited for all levels and all you need is your iPad pro your apple pen and for create so you feel ready. Let's get started. 2. choosing a theme: Okay, so we're going to start by opening procreate on your iPad and you're going to open a document by clicking on the plus sign. And you're going to just I usually go by 12 by 12 are working inches so you can create a new one. And I work in a 12 by 12. So you can put that 12 by 12 and I usually dio 600 dp eyes cause that's just how I work. But I'm going to do 300 because it will give me more layers. Otherwise, is just we're going to be very limited. And I'm just going to name a mosaic so I can find it really easy next time that I want Teoh make another art. So you have your document right here. And, um, now we're going to decide what we wanted to write. So it could be a word. It could be a phrase. It could be a name. Someone's name, your daughter's name, your son's name. Um, so we are added the grid just so we can just write a little bit on a straight line, and I make the grade a little bit smaller to give me more in lines just in case I'm writing more than one ward Art Award is really, really long inch. Let's set up the color that I like usually working pink. But it varies depending on the type of art that I'm doing next. We're going Teoh, go ahead and choose all the brushes that we're going to be using for this art. All the brushes are native to procreate, so there's nothing new. I do have a new brush that I will share with you in case you want to use it later. I won't be using for this work, and I'm going to separate all the brushes and a folder in a little bit. So right now I'm just writing what I want to write as a idea. So I usually just ask myself all those questions. Do I want a favor? Word or name? Um, I get my inspiration a lot from music, but I don't do that for, you know, for most anything that's going to be something that I'm gonna be profiting firm. And please don't do that. You have to ask the band or the musician or the author of those songs. If you are allowed to do that. Otherwise you can get a big trouble. So I just chose the ward. Welcome. Ah, lot of people do love or hello or hi or your name or someone else's name you can do. Happy birthday. You can do a greeting card. You can do so many different things. You don't have to even write award. You can just also do pictures so you can draw something and turn into a mosaic. And right now we're going to separate those brushes. So what I do, I I'm going to open Ah, brush folder in a library in I'm going to name if mosaics and I'm going to go into every, uh, brush that I'm going to use. I'm going to duplicate it, and I'm going to separate into that folder. So I'm going to use the six b pencil is one of them. I'm also going to do the bonobo shock. I use that one at the very end. Um, sometimes you can see that it goes into the wrong folder, so I have to redo it, so I might speed up the process so you don't have to go and watch this painful video. The whole time. Um and, um also, I will do the I think it's this. Pray paint. I'll do the monoline because that's what we're going to be sketch not sketching, but doing all the lines is the main one is monoline. You're gonna be using that Ah, lot. And I'm going to do ah, couple of other brushes. And, um, I will put on a list that what brushes? You're going to you so you don't have to follow and just guess which one I'm doing. I'm just doing it really quick, so you don't have to Just watched extra five minutes of this, So just hang on in there. I'm going to speed up this video so you can we can get started with the art. Okay, so now I have most of the brushes that I'm going to use on this project. So I think I'm on Lee missing one other brush thinks the soft brush. So I'm just going to start lettering and I will put a list of all the brushes that I use on the resources for the page. So I'm going to start with just breath draft. I love flourishing, but sometimes they don't work really well, so I might change things here and there and free those of you who can hear the little baby in the background. That's my daughters. But she's just watching me for most of the time. So I'm just going to just breakfast and see which lettering looks better. You don't have to be a letter, Arkalyk refer. You can just use your own handwriting or you can type something if you just one block letters that work as well. So I'm just going to the writing on top of all my draft, this is until I'm satisfied with the result. And then I'm ready to designed the tiles, but for the meantime and just kept writing and writing and writing. So you're going to see me like adding, ah bunch of layers until I'm happy with the result and I'm changing things here and there. - So I think I'm happy with what I have here right now. Most of it at least, so I'm just going to go around it and just do a little adjustments. I like the style that I that I end up with so far is not perfect. But I always a justus. I go. It doesn't have to be perfect the first time around. So you going to just delete the extra layers, the styles that I don't that I decide that I'm not going to use. I just wanted to keep it very simple. The more flourishing, the more details that you add. It will take longer for you to complete your mosaic so it could be very time consuming. It's very relaxing for me to do it, but I don't want it to be too much where, like I can do this today anymore. So I'm going to go ahead and just adjust the down strokes of my words right now. So you're going to see just little details that I'm going to add. You absolutely don't have to. I'm just ID like a lot of details. So you're going to see the most of the music will have, like a little tiles as well 3. Designing the background : Okay, so now that I finish with my word, I want to start on the background. So I'm first going to just design the tiles for the background, which is the easiest part. So you're going to go, and under the folder texture, you're going to choose the grit and you just going That's where you're going to use for the tiles in the background. That's the easiest part Soy just duplicated from the folder. Daddy was on the texture, and I just put in the folder from the prosaic, so I don't have to keep searching all the time. So you go to choose just black just usual, and I usually keep it at ah size of 35%. So the tiles is like comparable to what the tiles off the work is going to be. So they're kind of mash. They don't have to be the exactly same size. So I'm just opening another layer, and I just go with the my EpiPen and I just go all over. Don't take the don't left the pen from your canvas. Otherwise, you're just going to doing, um, two layers off the tiles and they're not gonna mash so you're gonna have to redo it. So just make sure that you get all the little spots. You might miss a little bit here and there, but it would just add a little bit more character and more flawed, I would say to the tile. So I just add everything in here. Um, once that's done, um, I e usually duplicate every layer. Did everything that I do. So I see what I see. What I mean, like, if you do another one after you lift the pen, it will do another layer of the tiles, but they're not gonna match. So I duplicate the layer. I just put it in the back in case I needed again. I live in an invisible so they don't They're not touching each other, and I don't have to use it anyway, Um, I need to make those lines a little thicker, though, because if you can see, the monoline is considered considerably. I can talk today. Ah ha. Thicker than the layers of the lines for the great. So what I'm gonna do, I'm going to duplicate the grid, and I'm going to go to the magic little thing right there. Things called Magic One, and I'm going to click on Ah, Goshen. Is that how you say it? And I'm just going to slide to the right. About 3.5% I think, is Gaussian Blur. That's called about 35%. And, um, I'm just going to click on Select Off the one that I just did that select. Then I go into the plus sign toe, open a new layer and then on the new layer. I'm going to choose the hard brush, and I'm just going to just go with my bullpen on top of a like I'm just coloring a book that's going to make the lines a little bit thicker. If you go too much, it is going to be a lot thicker, like uh, if you go more than 3.5% when you're doing the Gaussian blur, so I just do 3.5. That's enough for me. You can go thicker if you want. If that's what the look that you're going forward, that's totally fine. I'm just using 3.5% and, um, that should take care of the thickness off the grid for me. and it's going to look more like a Todd. The way that I want to tie have to look day after you finished with your grip. You can go ahead and delete the extra layer day. Just did the Gaussian blur? Nothing new layer, but the previous one, and you don't need that so you can get rid of that right away. And now is time for us to probably talk about color palette. I have included the palate it I chose for this project. You can choose other colors. Iose really go with three main colors and ago. Two shades, one darker, one lighter because so we can idea factor detail. So you just saw my call it pal. If you're free to copy few one, you can do a color drop. And, um, you can use that if you want or you something different. So I what I did, I just changed the color of my title to a medium grade. That's one of the grays that you should definitely have, because that's more looks a little bit more realistic. So I use the medium grey for all the tiles, the one that I do, the background and the one that I did the lettering. So I just changed the great for the for the great that I I wanted to. And the job just gives a completely different look for the times. If you think that is a little bit you strong, you can always do a little Decrease the opacity a little bit, but that media and great medium gray should work the best in my opinion. And, um, as always, duplicate and send that layer to the back. This one. I'm gonna keep it under the lettering because that's the layer that's going to be in the background anyway. And then right after that, we can go ahead and start outlining all word. Okay, so the hard part is starting now, so we're gonna go ahead and choose that monoline. So weakened outline or word. I opened a new layer in front of that word that I had letter the capacities capacities still down. I choose black for now, but I will change it later and, uh, later. Okay? And you can go ahead. Well, I'm gonna go ahead. You're just watching for now in a lie. My work. So just hang in there. I'm gonna outline everything and then the war about the literalists detail. Right now we need flaw. Any little imperfection? We can delete it later. I don't duly every imperfection because I like to keep it. You know, sometimes the way it is, I like it clean, but not too clean. So I'm going, Teoh, I like this word, and I'm going to speed up the process a little bit, just so you don't have to watch the whole 20 minutes. Sometimes it can take that long if I'm not happy with. So just hang in there and I'll be done in just a minute. Okay? So, uh, the outline is done and you can see that it's pretty close to being perfect. But I don't change it too much. I leave the imperfections in there like I said before. So duplicating this layer, obviously, because if something goes wrong, I still have one layer hopes. Sorry, didn't mean to hit on my camera, but now we are getting ready to start the tiles on the words we'll see in the next video. 4. Drawing the first tiles: Okay, I hope you are ready for this. This is the part that use will start designing the tiles. That's the most time consuming part. But it's actually my favorite. If it's a great stress reliever, I think so. So we're going to start with just a regular monoline brush. I'm just getting rid of some layers that I don't need. And, uh, you see you the background that I was trying to earlier that I decided not to go to. I'm just going with the native brushes on procreate so you don't have to do anything else. So here are my colors. I haven't decided quite yet. Which color I'm gonna add in, what on the word. But we don't have to decide right now, So I'm just going to go on my folder on choose the monoline brush and, uh, decrease the size off the brush until about 5%. As usual, duplicate that layer. You're gonna need that later and just unclipped s so it's not visible, and we can go ahead and stars catching or tiles. I need to my brush, not the eraser. Okay, so I will probably make the video this part of the video a little faster, so you don't have to go through it. But just let you know I go following the curve off the letter. That's the look that I like, not just straight lines for the tiles. And I do that for every single letter. I just followed the curve and the tiles will look much better than just regular straight lines because that's just the look that I like. And I'm going to do the vertical ones first. And then I will do the cross that you see that it will look like the tiles after that. So just bear with me for a little bit until I complete all the tiles and I'll leave a little bit of the process video here. So you see how it looks on each letter separately to form the word. - Just so you know, if I see that part of the letters on my word are thin enough, I don't need to design a tile in there. I just leave it us the same size. So I just make I don't make the tiles even smaller. - Okay ? We did all the first lines already, and the word is complete on the back part, and now we're going to do the vertical lines, and that's when you're going to see that electorate looks like tile. So I'm just going to go in. Little squares do not have to be perfect. They don't have to be perfect. In fact, it would add a little more character if you just leave it just hand drawn, not too straight, and you're going to see from time to time I'm going to add little imperfections to the tile , and it's going to look like a little mosaic. So just I usually do them as I go. Like the little defects on each tyre. No. Looks like a little broken tiles or leftover tiles if you see that in the real mosaic. But I will design that as I go. You can follow the same strategy. You can do that as you go. You can just finished all the tiles and then add to the imperfection of later on. It's really up to you. You don't have to add imperfections at all. Actually, I like him just because I think it looks much better that way. So let me go ahead and finish this and there you go. I just designed one right there, and I will do some clean it up after I'm done. If I'm cleaning up as I go, then it will take a long time. So I just go ahead and put all the tiles first, and then I will just erase any extra lines that I see that it doesn't look very good. - This is a good time for you to start thinking what colors you're going to use for your word or letter or phrase. Um, you don't have to use the same ones that I was using, so you can just remember one shade lighter, one shade darker for every color day you decide to use, so we can add that effect. If you're not sure which color palette or how to choose your color palette. There a couple of tools that I use oneness, color hunt that it's online and the other one is from Adobe. It's Col. Dobie Color wheel, and you just go online and you just type adobe color wheel or color hunt colored will just have you. You look at color palettes already put together while the adobe color wheel you choose a color and it will give you either complementary colors or compound colors is actually very useful. And I use that all the time. So take a look and hopefully that will help you choose the color day you want. Okay. The tiles are done, everything is completed. I have my color palette here. In the next video, we're going to start coloring, so just let's move on. 5. More tiles! : Okay, lets start coloring. I'm going through my word and there's still some little lines that go outside of the main line. So I'm just erasing those. So doing the cleaning up a little cleanup here and there. But I won't keep you in the whole video. It will last a little bit cause a perfectionist with that kind of thing. So, um, or just doing a little clean up in there. And now we are ready to start coloring. So going Teoh my layers duplicating everything as usual. So just know that I duplicate everything that I complete and I put things on the background just in case that made steak or change my mind on the calorie and the style. I go back and I don't have to start things all over again. So we are going to start coloring. I have my blues and shape different shades of one of blues. I have all my brush is just making sure that they're all in the same folder. So what we're going to do now, we're going to color that outline that we did in the beginning. So I have the outline here with the with the color that I want a one of the blues, so I'm just going to color that one and put underneath of the main word so I don't have to calorie separately. So just you going to do? Ah, a little drop of color and there to go in the background. I'm also doing some quick cleaning up and making sure that all the points are connected. Otherwise, the when I dropped the collar is going to color fill the whole campus instead of just the words. So let me just close those gaps in there, and then I will call her the drop really quick. So what I'm doing is coloring the outline and putting underneath the details in case I change my might later. So I don't want to color the tiles. And if something goes wrong, I have to just redo the 1000 is just a lot of work. So I just put it underneath. And then if you want to change your mind and do another color, if you don't like it, you can go ahead and change that. Okay? I did the coloring for their word. Now I'm going to duplicate it, and what I'm gonna do is I'm going to just added extra detail to that word, and I'm going to outline the word and add a different color to it. So a little bit more drawing. So bear with me and we're gonna go ahead and then color that in a different way as well. - Yeah . Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. I'm almost done. Can you give me just a minute? Okay. Outline is done. And guess what? They're more tiles. So I'm going to do some Maher duplicating. Make sure that I save all my work and we're going to do more tiles on the outline as well. Next we're going. Teoh design. Also the background, color everything and add the shades. 6. Coloring! : okay, Finished the outline in saleable tiles and I'm going to start hollering them. They're going to be white, so I'm just going to add some off white colors and you can see the girl in the different layers. And when I mean by that is every layer has the color of the other layer has the tiles and the outline. So if I want to make any changes, I don't have to change everything. I've just changed one thing at a time without touching the other part of the project, and I also has already colored the background tiles for the medium gray. And I'm going to do the same thing for the word The reason I chose medium Great. If you wondering, it's because this mosaic is supposed to be something on the floor like you're stepping on it and I'm gonna add my feet later on. But that's why is great and not another color. I just changed now the word outline on the tiles for that same gray, and you can see the difference is a lot less striking than the black. But once you add all the color, everything will all come together and it will look much better. Not trying to decide where I'm going to put each of the colors that I chose. So I always start with black because that's just my thing. I start with the black background to see how he looks, but I probably will change. I want something a little bit more. Um, Melo, I would say so. I'm just going Teoh, play with the collars for a little bit and see which ones I like the best. Okay, okay. I think I have decided on peachy color for the background and the blue for the word. So next video, we're going to start adding the details, details. 7. Background color variation : Okay, so I decide on the light, peach color or blush, Whatever you call it as the background. And, um, I've been just saving a couple of things. So in case I changed my mind, I can go back and re color. I colored whole canvas behind the tiles off the background so I can change that any time. I also have a couple. I do more than two shades of each color. I said that the minimum is two shades, one lighter, one darker. But I I actually have a few more. So we're just going to start. This is the layer that I feel filled with the pink, the peach color right behind it. So you can see that is completely differently. A separate up from the rest of the project. So same thing with the other colors. I have a couple of other shades, so now we're going to start coloring the tiles and I Since I have a copy of the tiles off the background, I'm going to color on the tiles off the background, not the layer behind it. So, as you can see, I'm just dropping the color on each square and just randomly just going, Ah, bunch of little squares and you just just drop the caller in there and it's just going to fill that little square and as many as you want. I don't have a count. How many edges do? As many as I feel like once I zoom in, actually zoom out the the whole design I can see, like several around the campus. So I'm speeding up the process right now, so you don't have to watch me do every single one of them. But after I do the darker shade, this is what I'm doing right now. I'm going to do the lighter want. Sometimes I add an extra one. So, uh, I hope you just enjoy just the time lapse a little bit. - Wants you done with the darker shade. You can go ahead and choose a couple more, or at least one more lighter one. And just to do the same thing, just drop on the squares and randomly, so there's no rhyme or reason. Just drop those collars, your heart's content, and then we're gonna go ahead and do the same thing to the word once we're done. And that's that part is going to be in a separately? No. Okay, so I'm close to being done with the tiles and well off the bait background. So once we're completely done with that, we're going to move on to the next video where we're going to do the same thing to the word and then add the rest of the effects. 8. Word color variation : Okay, we're almost done here. We are now going to start just adding the shades to the word, and that's going to give the one of the final effects. And after that, we're just going to make a look one little bit more realistic. So the same thing that you did with the background going to go with a couple of shades off the same color and just caller each tile separately. And don't forget the white parts as well of the white outline will also get a couple of shades is going to be just very subtle off whites. Obviously, you can go lighter than true white, but you can go a couple of different shades off off white. And that would give also a little bit more of a realistic look to the to the mosaic. - Okay , um, just about done here, just adding a couple of you know, a few extra tile colors, different shades and the next video we're going and Final one with finding a lot of give the worn out floors look and at the feet 9. Final effects: It's finally coming together and every the word is almost ready. The background is ready. Actually, everything is pretty much ready now. We're just adding some embellishments and, um, some effects. So I mean this with the symmetry tool. So I just designed one side. I drew one side, and then the other one just came with it, obviously. And, um, I will post that on the project section or the class description so we can use it if you want, or you can make your own. If you want to add any embellishment, I always add something something after just Teoh. Especially if I'm going to insert my feet into the project because that would give a little bit more depth. It looks like you really stepping onto it so I can include just the outline on the course, and you can copy if you want to conduct logic included in your in your work if you want, or you can just make something on your um so I'm just going to include I included that on another piece that I did that one, it was just for fun. Obviously, I get a lot of my inspiration for music So that's one of my favorite bands. And I didn't but embellishment for that project, and it was actually on my instagram. So I'm going to include that on this welcome music right now, and I'm going to just change the color and I can do that on I'm not sure from that. Green doesn't really go with that bluish teal, so I'm going to change to something else. Let's see if I can change the color hue up the top. So what I did, I moved to embellishment. Teoh stay on top of the background so it doesn't show any of the tiles from the background . So I'm going to go to the collar hue and saturation and you can see that it's slightly changing. That's cute with no, probably go with something. A pink side. Yeah, that's doesn't work. I will play with it for a little bit, but it's probably gonna be on the pinkish tone that perfect. Okay, I will keep that one. Um, you could do something else. You could do white black. You can dio the color of the just the grade the medium grey, which, by the way, I never explain this part but it represents ah, cement, which is on the floor. That's why you stepping onto it. And so that's why I chose the medium grey so you could make it in that color if you want. I'm just gonna I'm still messing with that, but I'm still gonna think I'm going to keep that pink one, and you just place it on top of the tiles and you don't have to erase anything underneath. And you can move it around if you want to. You can make a smaller You can make it bigger. You can duplicate and put on top and one at the bottom. I'm just gonna keep one at the bottom, and that will be it. So I'm going to keep that pink one more pinkish, and, um, that will be it. I'm not gonna put anything up to the top. Uh, now we are going to ad We're gonna to we want to use the burnable chalk right now, we're going to make that floor look a little worn out. So I'm going, Teoh, choose the white color. I'm going to go halfway on the size and halfway on the capacity, and I'm going to just go on a different layer at the top layer. I'm not going to do it on the project. I'm just going to do in a separate layer, and I just lightly brush around on all over the campus. And if I zoom in, you're going to see that gives those little specks and white that gives a little bit of, ah, war Now, uh, look, because it's the floor you're supposed to be walking on it. So it's supposed to be, you know, worn out. And then I will do a second later. A second layer in black, very lightly. You can tell that it's the black is kind of slightly getting into it, and it's you see the little black specks and it looks like it's dirty. So one the white is to look worn out and the blackest to look a little dirty. And, um, that's also not separately. Or you could do the same layer with the white. Okay, so the last part of this will be to insert the picture of your feet or, if you want a picture of a pair of you know, someone's feet. Um, I actually took a picture of my That's all pictures of my daughter, but she was not going it. That's Ah, a picture of my feet that I took outside my apartment. I don't recommend to doing right, you know, outside would with the sun beating down because it would saturate your picture really bright. So try to do it in a finish aid, but with good lighting. So, um, then will you do is well, you can also get a picture of feet. If you don't want to take your own, you can get on sites like unspool ash. It's royalty free photos that you can take, and you can use it for personal or commercial. And you can actually added those pictures or you can take on your own. I'm very particular how my feet will look on those pictures not because of beauty or anything like that, but the position. It's very important to me to adapt that part of my legs shows on the photo because it would look like I'm actually taking a photo from up top like off my feet, and I'm stepping on the floor and I like detail and I want to take a picture of it. Ah, lot of those pictures that you get on a splash on other places sometimes is just the feet, and it looks kind of off to me. Um, so I like to take a picture off my feet or someone else's feed, but I can get part of the leg onto the picture, so it really just looks like I'm stepping into the floor. So I with the lasso tool, I just go ahead and just take the majority of whatever is. You know that that is not my feet. So the floor, I take it out off the photo and then I just go with the brush eraser and I take the rest of it. So I just go really lightly around my feet. And you can see that that I'm not really paying attention to too much detail because really is not gonna the fuzz or anything like from the details from the fabric is not really going to show on the picture. Plus, I'm going to add a little bit of shading to show the shade. So now, now I'm trying to give mawr of the details around my feet because I have a smaller, up sized brush for the eraser. I didn't want to go with a big one. I just wanted to take the big chunks first, and then I would take the rest with a smaller brush. And I just want to make sure that the position of my feet looks, um, proportional to the design that that I have and what I want to look like. I wanted to look like a huge floor like a big room when a nice music right in the middle and I'm stepping into an and taking a picture. That's basically what I'm going for. So I just decrease the size a little bit, reduced the size of my feet and legs so it looks like I'm stepping on it, and so it looks a little bit more realistic. Okay, now, the last part of this the last effect and I think that makes the biggest difference to me is the shade or the shadow behind, like by your leg in your feet. It will give a little bit more depth and looks like you really stepping into a floor. And that's when I had a couple of projects that people actually didn't know if it was made in a computer if is actually a floor somewhere. And they're like, really words. Where where were you? So you're going to get the soft brush to small soft brush and with the black, uh, color and a pass it down to half, Uh, maybe a little less. You just going to go right next to the edge of your feet or whatever feed you put in there ? So it's just a little bit because it's going to give a little shade of like you're stepping somewhere, so it's going to reflect the shade onto the floor so you know what I mean. And we're going to add a bigger I'm just going doing this, making this video a little faster so you don't have to watch all the details like all the time, because this could take a long time. And then after you go around your feet with a smaller brush, you can increase the size a little bit and just do the shade like there. The light is reflecting and your position for that so there's a shade behind you, So I always like to have whatever lighting I'm using to go up left on the top. Top left Yeah, so my shade comes on the opposite side of that. I don't know why, but I'm always in the same kind of direction when it comes to the sun and my projects or delighting so you can see them. I The shade is on the right of my body off my feet because the sun or the lighting will be on the top left. You can choose whatever cider direction you want. I don't You don't have to add shade. I think it's very important to give that look that you actually somewhere. Not just it's not just the computer drawing, but you can kind of full of people in there out there saying, like if I went to this place and I was stepping on the floor and it was awesome my in fact , I designed it, Um, so I think that the shadow of your body and your feet are very important to look realistic . And once you, uh, with the shade, I always Sometimes it's not always. Sometimes I go with an eraser and just kind of do a little retouch with the shade to make it a little bit. Not so obvious a little sometimes they're the shadow order sheet can be like a little dark . So I go in there with an eraser with the also with a soft brush, and I just make it up the capacity a little bit lower. And you can also just decrease the opacity of that later, if that's what you want. So that shade in that shadow is also done in a different league. Because if you need to start over again, you just just erase the whole thing and then start over. Uh, I didn't have to do that in this case, Thank goodness. So I'm just going to just do a little retouch here, and then we're going to be done, So just hang on for one minute and I think that's it. I think that we are done. Feet are on the floor, Mosaic is ready or mosaics. And now we're going to go into the class project 10. class project: if you made it this far. I'm so proud of you.
