About This Class

Get ready to explore the Brush Studio in Procreate 5X while we learn how to make stamp brushes! Hot Cocoa and Coffee is the perfect theme for this as it will result in the most gorgeous illustrations that can then be used online, on print-on-demand sites, as repeat patterns, and more. You can even print some lovely “warm wishes” cards or Hot Cocoa party invitations. 

I will show you how to create a set of stamps that can be used in various combinations so you can create a wide variety of looks. I’ll also show you some decorative stamps and stamps to use as “accessories” such as rainbow sprinkles! There are several settings to play with when making stamp brushes and you’ll learn how to make adjustments to get them to work just the way you want them to. With these skills, you’ll be able to continue making stamps for future projects whenever you need them! 

Once we have our stamps made, I will show you a colorful, stylized way to illustrate them and we will take a look at a couple other ways you can illustrate them as well. If you make a collection of hot cocoa drawings, you can easily turn them into a repeat pattern like I’ve done here. Procreate 5X has made this easier than ever! If you’re not sure how to so this, hop on over to my Seamless Repeats class here! It’s addictive!

As a bonus, at the end of class I will show you how to illustrate a lovely textured cup of hot chocolate with my favorite brushes. Lets get started!

1. Introduction: My name is Jennifer Nichols at Layland post studio. I'm an artist and a teacher. And today we're gonna learn about stamp brushes in procreate 5X, we're using hot cocoa and coffee as our theme. But I'm really teaching you about the brush studio and how to get those pressures to do exactly what you want them to do. So you can use those skills in future work whenever you want to make a stamp. As always, I give away free brushes in pallets. And when we're done making stamps, I'll show you a fun way to illustrate one of our creations using all the stamps that we made. These illustrations are perfect for print on demand companies like spoon flour, if you don't know how to make it repeat pattern, I do have a class on that as well. You can print out your own like this hot cocoa invitation. And of course frame near work will also take a look at some other styles have illustrations. But I'm going to have a bonus video for you to show you how I get a high textured look in my illustrations. It's my favorite way to illustrate. And I'm excited to give away some of my tips and tricks. I can't wait to see you in class. Be sure to head on over to my skill share profile page to find my links to Pinterest and Instagram and my Facebook group where I'm pretty active. It's a very friendly, safe place to share your art. Let's get started. 2. Downloading Class Resources & How to Post Class Projects: This is a short video on how to download resources for my classes. This particular class is the fall class, but it applies to all classes. So for this class there's a brush set, a swatch, which is a color palette to swatches actually. And then these are all image files. So sometimes I have individual brushes instead of brushes sets, and sometimes I have just a brush and nothing else. So what you need to do is go to your browser on your iPad in this a landscape mode, not portrait mode. And go to projects and resources in the tab underneath the class that you want. For my classes, this is just how you get to them. I don't have a password and I don't have a link to a website. They are all here in skill share. And you, depending on the browser you're on, you just, you can tap and hold. So this is a fresh set so you can tap and hold. And a little teeny tiny window pops up that says download. You can just simply tap. And when I tap download up here you're gonna see for This is for Safari, you'll see a little arrow bounce right here, right there. And it's just got that progress bar and then it bounces when it's all done. And then when you're done with that, you can tap there and go into that. So right here in the download section is where you're going to find all of the things that you've downloaded and you'll have to remember the name of it because it's all, I think alphabetical. It definitely doesn't go to the top. So once you're there, you can tap on it. So it's that brush set right there. It'll import right into procreate so you can go into something and it will be at the very top of your list. Brushes here. So then that's your brush set. Will go back here. When you have a swatch, you do the same thing, you just tap on it, get it into procreate, sell it. Let's go ahead and do that. Download. I see it bounced right there. I'm gonna tap download. And here it is right here. So again, you have to remember the name of it. It was autumn ONE importing into procreate and in swatches for pallets, you go to the color circle here. And then you need to go to palettes. And it's can Hippie at the very bottom, I don't know why. But those import to the bottom, brush sets import to the top. Okay? Finally, if you have an image file, I've included a lot of image files in some of my classes and get his start just putting them in Pinterest. So right now you'll see a lot of image files just for free reference photos, so you can tap on those and they open up in a new browser tab. So you can just tap your finger and hold and add to photos and it goes to your camera roll if you want it. If you have an individual brush, when you import that, it will actually go into a category. I don't use this very much, matches either imported or imports. I can't remember which one. So I created one of these. And the other one was a default brush set category. So as of right now, in late 2020, the app doesn't let you download resources directly from the skill share app. So make sure you're in a browser. I believe they're working on that. I believe they're working on being able to download your resources from the app as well as post a project. So this video might get a little outdated when that happens, just so you know, but right now you need to be in landscape mode in a browser. I'm going to show you how to create a project later. There might be a way of doing this from the app. Right now we need to be in a browser, go to projects and resources of the class that you are wanting to post a project to create project. So this is sometimes confusing for the first couple of rounds when you're uploading a project right here that says Upload Image is actually your cover image. So it's going to crop it to this rectangle so you can create your own image for that, or just put whatever image you want in there and let it crop it. And then you can title it, you can write something, but right here, this image button is what's adding your images to your project. And you can actually add multiple images. So there are limits. So for this cover photo, you have an eight megabyte limit. But there's I'm not sure about the limits for the photos down here, but you can add multiple images. So let's say you have a project that has multiple parts to it. You can create a project and then you can go back and edit the project and add more. So just wanted to do a little quick, quick video on that because this Upload Image right here confuses a lot of people. That's just the cover photo. So here you can see on some of my projects that you can see it's just showing the rectangle there. And then if you go to the project, you can see that there's the cover photo, but then I've added other photos inside. Alright, I hope that helps. 3. Review of Brushes for Class: So a quick review on the brushes that are included in class. My monoline big brush. I include that in most classes. My six Bs and other favorite in most classes I use that mostly for sketching. I included a blink stamp brush. You can use it, duplicate it when you need it, to make edits to it. And I am going to show you how to do one from scratch so you don't have to use this and then you'll learn a little more about brushes by doing it from scratch, which is by adding this little plus sign here. And then this one is from my mid-century class, is just called Mr. dashing. In it's just a dashed line. So that's just gonna be a fun decorative when this one is brand new and it's a colored changing wash. And it is really fun. If you add a little pressure, it gets darker. And if you add the same amount of pressure, it does have some variation. In the strokes. Pressing hard will get darker. And this is a nice way to still get a streaky look when you're painting with it without having to constantly change colors. So that is a really fun brush I'm really excited about and hopefully you'll get some good use out of it. But this class, we're going to be making a whole bunch of brushes to add to this collection. And that's what we're gonna get started on next. 4. Finding Reference Photos & Getting Started!: To get started, we're going to go ahead and grab the 6P and go to black so you can double-tap down here and then come over here to the wrench tool and Canvas. And we're going to turn on symmetry. So you go to the drawing guide, toggle back on edit drying guide, and then come to symmetry right here. And it defaults to this vertical symmetry. I am going to adjust my line just so it's more easily seen in the video. You can make your line however you want. And now that layer that we're on has drawing assist automatically turned on, which is great, that's what we need. And we're going to be drawing some different mug shapes, just the mugs without the handles. Go ahead and hop on over to and type mud. You can scroll through. And these are free use photos. So I'm looking for pictures that are at this angle or somewhat similar because I want to see the sides and the shape of the mug in the handle. So once I find and I know this is quite plain, but I'm gonna go ahead and save it. And to photos. And I'm looking for different shapes of handles and different shapes of mugs. Here's a nice mug with a rounded base, kind of flutes out on top. Who? Here's one that has some nice grooves in it. I think I may grab that. I don't think I have that yet. So go through and collect this one's nice. Collect a lot of different styles. Oh, this isn't a mug, This is a little tea kettle. There's a little spelling there, but you can make it a mug. This looks like that's the mug. Even if it's not exactly at the right angle that we're going to be trying to keep consistent with our illustrations. You can grab when that is giving you a sense of a different shape of mug. So we don't need a whole bunch that are this shape. We need different shapes. So this tall, straight when this roundy, when this one's got some flared out base, there's, there's a time of really interesting mug shapes. Oh, there's one that's new. I don't think I have that one saved. I also have a Pinterest board that is linked in the section on projects called projects and resources in the tab. So you can check out my hot cocoa Pinterest board, and I made sure those were all from pixabay, so they are all free use photos. A lot of what we've already seen here. And what we're gonna do is make several stamps that have different mug shapes and make several stamps that have different handle shapes. Check out that handle. And also several stamps that have different topping shapes. See these giant marshmallow has spent some time going through and finding some really great ones. We searched mag, you could search whip cream, hot cocoa, coffee, marshmallows. You can search all sorts of things. Once you have quite a few pictures saved or you can refer to the Pinterest board. Go ahead and split screen or whatever you do for your reference photos, you can use the reference tool here by going to Canvas, turning on reference photo. And right now it's showing the canvas which is blank. You can go to image, import image, and go right to your reference photo. Zoom in on it just two-finger pinch and zoom just like the regular canvas. And move it right up top. Let's go ahead and do that. I'm gonna go ahead and close this. And I'm not used to using this if you're watching this right now, this is shortly after procreate 5X came out and everybody is still getting used to some new features. So the great thing about having your reference photo here is you can grab the colors from it with your finger. Not with the stylus though. I'm looking at the shape. I have drawn assist turned on. And I see may shape just gets a little bit more flared out at the bottom. I'm also making my stamp sketchy. So when I use these stamps, they're just going to be like a sketch, not a finished stamp. I like making stamps that are more of a sketch because you can make little changes. You don't have to have it super-duper complete. And then you can adjust the size and you don't have to worry about scaling up. And I'll talk about that later. All right, so we're just going to go ahead and make a line that is narrower at the top, wider at the base. And this is about the angle of the opening that I am going for in, in my mugs. So that's good. We need to make sure the top and the bottom are similar in angle. Take a little time. Does ticket it exactly how you want it, even though it is just going to be a sketch in the end. I think that my base over here got a little too wide. And I went there, corners rounded a little more, going to tap and hold on the eraser. So the six B's selected for the eraser as well. There I'm more happy with that. So when I have magnetics on and uniform on and I select, I can increase the size of this by these two middle nodes. And it'll increase uniformly and it'll stay in the middle. So when you make stamps, you need to make them pretty big. Also on a square canvas. So my canvas is ten by ten. All right, and now we need to share that as a JPEG and save it to our camera roll. I'm gonna go ahead and turn that off at another layer. I don't need dry and assist on. So I'm not going to turn Dionysius done and I'm going to make a handle. So we saw some interesting handles. You can make any of those handles, but I'm just gonna go ahead and make a pretty simple curved handle. And I'm going to save that as a JPEG as well. So we're going to turn these two images into Stamp brushes. I'm gonna go ahead and turn my line off here. Turner drawing guide off. I'm gonna go ahead and turn my reference layer off. You can do that like this or by going back here and toggling it off. Now I'm just going to split screen with Safari and look back at this marshmallow photo. So I just need some marshmallows just like that. So I see hopefully you can see this in the camera. I see at the top of a marshmallow, whoops, tiny may 6B. I see the top of a marshmallow. I see kinda the edge of a marshmallow here, the edge of the top edge and it goes down. And then I see a marshmallow back here. So k, If it's not just like the image, but it is kind of hiding behind it. So the marshmallows kinda facing s. This lesson is kind of going down that way. I need to have a little bit more consistency with those circles of the marshmallow shapes. So I'm just going to circle this Lynn and shrink it a little bit. It's just for a sketchy stamp. So it's okay if it's imperfect. And then of course, your mug rim is going to be right here. So really what you're doing is just making it so you don't have to redraw this every time. You want large marshmallows in a cup. So you can save that stamp as well or that image to make a stamp with. And another thing you can do for a stamp is make kind of a straw. And that straw is going to end up being something you can use as a straw, as a candy cane, as peppermint stick, as a cinnamon stick, anything you want. So drawing two lines that are somewhat parallel, moving it into this center and making it pretty big on the canvas. Alright, in the next video, I'll show you how to make, since stamp brushes with those shapes. 5. Assembling The Perfect Cup of Hot Cocoa: Go ahead and go to your brushes, and you can go ahead and take this stamp brush and duplicate it. This is just a blank stamp. I don't have my name in there or anything. Go to the duplicated when and you're going to change the shape. You want the shape to be your mug for example. So you go to shape, edit, import, import a photo, and go to your mug. Now, this looks correct, but what you need for stamps shapes is a black background. So you need to tap to get rid of the menu. And now you need to to finger tap to invert. So you can rotate things at this 0.2. But of course we, we don't need a rotated Meg and tap done. You have to tap done for it to see if that image. And you can go in and change the name of your brush. Tapping up here, changed the name, make a little name here, signature here, and then tap create new Reset. All right, now you have a stamp of that mug. But let's say you lost my little example of a blink stamp brush. And you want to create your own, you just go to this little plus sign. And you're in a fresh brush, studio brush. It's kind of a blank canvas, but there are some changes that we need to make to make a stamp brush. This spacing is how far apart each shape is from the next. So when a brush is like this, Those are a whole bunch of circles really close together. Really close together. So that stamp brash is going to have them really spaced out. Now it will still be a brush. You can see if you use it like a brush. It still does, do its thing, but it's got all those shapes spaced way out. So that's the first step is maxing out your spacing and go into shape. Go to Edit. We're gonna import our handle photo. Tap to get rid of that menu and two-finger tap to invert that tap done to save it. The next thing you need to do is go down to Apple Pencil. We don't want the opacity to be changing on our stamp pressures. We wanted at full opacity. This is confusing because it's looks like it's at full capacity. But what it's saying is that with pressure with your pencil, it will change the opacity. So with using your finger on something that you will have full opacity every time. But with your pencil, you won't have full opacity every time unless you turn this off, right? And just like before, you can go in and change the name of it. This properties area, you have a Preview option and you also have used stamp preview. Since it's a stamp brush, go head and turn that on and it will use one of your images, your shaped source, as a preview instead of trying to draw brush. And of course you can play around with how big or how small you want it to go. Tap Done. And then we can see the previous size looks great. So that's, that works. Let me show you really quick what it would look like if we didn't have US stamp preview. So it's showing a line of them. And it's going to drag that down by my mug here. On a new layer. I'm already on a new layer. I'm going to stamp my handle. And let's do that one more time. Let's go make a fresh brand new brush. Add. Spacing out to the max. Change the shape source to our marshmallows this time. Top-down, always, always, always. Apple Pencil. Capacity down. Change the name if you want. Turn the brush, use you stamp preview, maybe changed their previous size. All right. I think I can make that go bigger. So we need a new layer for that. So we have all of our elements on three separate layers. This is the part that I'm super excited to show you. If you did five mugs and five handles and five toppings. And you would have all of those brushes to be able to assemble any variation of those at any time that you want. And what I mean by assemble is now I have, I can, I can upscale because I am just using this as a sketch. Now I have all of these. I have all this ability to play around. I'm gonna turn magnetics off because it's kind of controlling where I put this. And I can just play and have fun until I get a nice shape that I like. I might bury those marshmallows a little bit. Zoom way in and then I'm going to go back to my mug layer. And I'm going to erase the parts that are behind the marshmallow. I might. I'm not going to erase the side of the mug. I'm gonna go to my handle and I'm going to erase those and that's going to make it look like the handle is a little bit behind the mug. And I'm gonna go to the marshmallow layer, a race that little piece there. And that marshmallow layer I can kinda lips and need to go back to like my 6B. Looks like I have a little more space to fill in with that marshmallow layer. And now I have an assembled cup of hot cocoa. I can merge all those layers and get it to the size that I want it for my illustration. And I'm ready to roll. I can show you a few examples of the different mugs that I've done in my in my set. So I've done that one around when when that's kind of fluted out, when that's kind of Bowlby and out a little bit and it has rims on the top and the bottom and a straight up and down. And then you can also make changes with the liquefy tool. So if you have a set of stamps and you don't feel like making another one, although you saw how easy that was. You can just take that one of these, let's say this one for example, you can make adjustments. So I can grab if I want this to be shorter, I can grab part of it and move it down. And now I have a short mug and it did just overlap. But again, these are just my sketches. If I want something that's a little bit more squared but not really squared down here. I can go back to my roundy mug selected tab fit to screen so I know it's in this center. And turn my drawing assist on so I can tap that to get drawing assist on. I went to see the line, so I'm gonna go ahead and go to Canvas and turn on my drawing guide. And now I could go to the magic wand, liquefy, push on a pretty big size. Don't use distortion or momentum, because those can have momentum Kind of makes something like water rushing. And distortion, adds more waves then you want. So push just moves things around and because it's on the drawing assist, I just need to worry about one side and the automatic it'll automatically go on the other side so I can pull down and make some adjustments. Now I want to make sure that I have a curve down here that's similar to this curve up here. So don't make too many adjustments. There we go. There's another way you can center now that we have snapping and just rotated that. So let's say you have this and you want it centered. If you turn on snapping and turn, turn toggle it on. And one of the ways that it will snap is directly to the center and you'll see the gold lines. So I'm gold here, angle here. So my piece is in the center. So you don't have to do fit to screen. You can do either way. Alright, so next step, I'm going to show you a couple other really fun stamps for decorating your mugs. 6. Making Sprinkle Stamp: I'm super excited to show you this stamp brush. It's like candy sprinkles. I love sprinkles so much. So you're gonna go to the big monoline brush in. You can just max out the size if yours is way too big M. Because now you know you can change brush size max here. I'm just find a nice big size and then think about a giant sprinkles. So you're going to want to, you don't want to make a really long sprinkle because the proportions are off, right? So for that thickness of line, it would probably be like that. But we need a sprinkle that takes up the whole page. So we're gonna go with a big thick line and a big thick sprinkle. That's it. Save it as a jpeg. All right, go back into your brushes and start a new brush space at all the way out. We're gonna come back to this because we're going to turn jitter on. But let's go change our shapes source to our sprinkle. Double-tap, doubt, two-finger tap to invert that, make sure you tap done. Now of course, sprinkles don't all go the same direction. We also have some opacity issues here, so we need to make sure we go change that, turn that opacity level off and back into shape, we are going to turn that count up. So maybe just to three. You can play around with that. You can't really see it here because we don't have anything rotating our stamp right now. But you can turn on scatter all the way to max. And it's going to make sure your three sprinkles are scattering. As he stamped them down. You can turn on randomized, randomizes, kind of another way to do that. So it's kind of either or for this type of stamp. But this is when we go back to stroke path. The jitter for this shape is making them stagger. So you can watch these. Let's try new line and watch what happens when the jitter goes up. So you can play around with that and get it to a level where you feel like the sprinkles are behaving. Like sprinkles should. You can go tab down, come to a new fresh layer, get a nice bright sprinkling color and tested. That's awesome. But it's not quite awesome enough. I want to show you something and look at how big our preview is. So that's another thing we can change properties. And bumper Preview down is just kind of trial and error. So I just bumped it down to 13. And we're gonna go into color dynamics. So these are some settings that will change every single stamp for the stamp color jitter. So you can, when you tap and you get three, every single one will be a different color if you change some of these. So that is kind of exciting. Let's change this first to a pink and also change our previous size so that we can see it better. So this stamp color jitter. So jitter just means it's going to kind of do other things back and forth, things like that. So the color, it's, if you go all the way up, you can see what's happening over here. It's going to sample color from all the way around the color wheel. Okay, so that's what we're doing with our sprinkles. And now every time we tap, it's kinda randomly grabbing colors from the whole color we'll tap done. Looks like we still need to decrease the size of this even more. Oh, it went back up. Sometimes that happens. So let's go back. And that's okay. I might go down a little more. Don't forget to name it something fun and sprinkling. Alright, so what I was saying about where is sampling colors from on the color wheel, it depends on where this is. So if you have kind of a muted red here, it's going to select. So keep your eye right here. It's going to select that same level of shade from all of these colors. So those are probably more earthy tone sprinkles. And then if you max out over here, you can get all these supersaturated sprinkles. I'd probably go somewhere just under that. Still pretty bright. Maybe come down a little bit more. And that color that we changed color dynamics. If you want a certain maybe a color theme, like you're having an ocean themed and party with blues entails and green sprinkles on your hot cocoa. Then come down on this, and it's only going to sample a little bit on each side of the color wheel from where your color is. So if you choose a blue, it's going to sample a little bit over here and a little bit over here from that. So let's show you how that works. So it's all these beautiful shades of blues in tills. I'm going to go ahead for this and Babbitt backup. I hope you have fun with that brush. I can't wait to see what you guys make with that. And in my kids lives, sprinkles on whipped cream. You could use it for all sorts of things. Ice cream, sundaes, everything. That's going to be the cool part about having a whole bunch of brushes like this. You can make various types of teapots, little tea cups instead of big mugs. Ice cream cones, all sorts of things, different types of shapes of ice cream. Oh, and whip cream. Of course, you can do a swirl of whipped cream. Show you mine. So I have this one. And this one. I have a mesh. I keep saying mushroom. They have a marshmallow went with tiny nationalists. And I went ahead and made a cinnamon stick. When you just need to add that little swirl at the top. I made my straw when Go ahead and have stripes on it since it's just a sketch that we're using it for, You don't have to trace the stripes if you want it to just be a simple straw. You can make it as trial with stripes. You could turn this into a peppermint stick. You can make some steam. Get messy here now. Different steam shapes. Yeah, that's what I have. Plus I have five handles and six mugs. Let's go back to black. And we're going to go to our model, a brush and make a chocolate chip stamp. You can look at a reference photo if you want. I am using the Model a brush because these stamps are going to be final products, right? So you're not going to trace each one of these. So I want them to look nice as a stamp. Save it. Once you have a different stamp brush made, you can easily just go and duplicate it. I might duplicate the sprinkle went for this because I'm going to use this as more of like sprinkles of chocolate chips on my whipped cream and go into the shape source, edit, import, import photo. Go to my chocolate chip. It's already got the black background because I just copied a different brush. So it has those same settings. And there we go. You can test a larger previous size here. Make sure you have those. How you want them. Maybe you want the jitter to be higher so they're scattered out there a little bit more out of control. When you have that scattered out, you could lower the jitter, go back into the shape and turn the countdown, but randomize it. See how they're clustered together. That's not good. We don't want that. So we're going to turn the jitter backup doesn't move and that preview is really big. That's better. Turn that off and test it out. Find a nice brown, chocolaty Brown. Oh, I just realized that that brush has the color changing, right? So we can go back into it, go to color dynamics and turn that all the way off. And now we have our Brown, not quite chocolate brown. There we go. So you can sprinkled chocolate chips on your whip cream. Alright, come back to the next video for a couple more stamp types. And we'll start decorating or mug. 7. Making Decorative Stamps: Let's say you want to sprinkle with some chocolate. Sprinkles like little chocolate shavings. A good way to make brushes like that is to use a brush that is kinda of a flaky look as your shaped source. So go down to calligraphy and choose coun Yani. I don't know if I'm saying that right. Make sure you're on black. And make a couple little flakes. You don't want them too long. Seed that as a JPEG. Go back up to our hot cocoa brushes. You can go ahead. And since we already turned that color jitter off on our chocolate chip rush, you can go ahead and just duplicate chocolate chip. Go to shape source. Import a photo. Make sure you tap down. So you can see that's kind of scattered. We don't want those two far away like that. I might even turn the countdown to when. That way every time you stamp your getting this. It's rotating notes scattering because I have that on. Let's test that. Go ahead and turn this off and add another layer and find a nice, I'm gonna use a nice light brown for this. So where I tap isn't necessarily where it goes because of that scatter. This scattered right here. I could turn this off and turn mixture randomizes on. And what that means is every time I tap this shape, this going to be in a random placement so that it's not just all in that same direction. Hopefully you can see that. Right? And I'm going to turn jitter all the way off. Turn random BEC on. Alright, that works. Now I have more control because things aren't scattering away, away from where I want them to be. And I can get just the right amount of chocolate sprinkles on. They whip cream on right? And the next two brushes I just want to show you as ways to decorate your mugs later. So go to your monoline big brush. We're gonna go to the drying guide, edit drying guide, and turn on symmetry options, radial. Make sure you're always on black. I write, so I like doing it this way and there's probably different ways of doing this, but I'm gonna go ahead and even though I've got symmetry on, so it's going to be a little tricky to get right on the line. I can let it snap to a straight line. You can see here rape hits doing its thing and I can just move those in. So they're basically right on top of each other. And I have a nice line right there. Can do a nice big dot at the end. Again, I need it to be in the center and not touching the edge. Alright, I'm gonna duplicate that. Selected. I just need to rotate it 45 degrees. So you can have that as one of your images if you want to just go ahead and share it as a jpeg, That would be a stamp on the outside of a mug. So I'm going to get another layer, join assist. Make sure I'm on a similar size as this line. And I'm just kind of eyeballing it up the middle right here. Let it snap to a straight line. You can move it around, just kind of eyeball the middle. And I'm gonna go for a smaller dot then this dot. I can merge all those layers that make up that one stamp so I can turn it off. I'm gonna go to any f may stamp brushes that have just one item on them or create one from scratch. Space going all the way out. Shape, Edit Shape, import from a photo. Invert, tap done. And make sure you randomize here. And what that's gonna do is what. We also need to go to Apple Pencil and turn that opacity level all the way down and make our stamp preview. Whoo, that's really tiny. These are kind of all over the place today. Alright, so now I have a nice stamp preview. It looks like I needed a better preview on this to, I'm gonna go to stamp preview on that TO right. So now I have this really awesome snowflake stamp monitor may drying died off. Look how tiny it is and that's why my stamp preview is so tiny. So I went to go into that. Go to Apple, oops, go to Properties and bump up my brush size, brush behavior, maximum size, bump it way up. And now this is a percentage of this. So I think that's going to end up being massive. So we can bring that back down. There we go. Now I have a much wider variety of sizes to choose from for that stamp. And every time I stamp it is going to slightly be rotated from the previous stamp. And you can stamp the edX site of your mugs with that. Now we're gonna go to picks a day. And we're going to tap star. Now I'm going to select from this photos option, vector graphics, and just pick a star. It doesn't have to be. It could be like a six or seven pointed star, five pointed star, any star that calls out to you, maybe there's some more rounded looking lens. I'm just gonna grab this. We're going to be tracing it. So it doesn't need to be anything fancy. And add insert photo. Stars are so tricky. And uniform is on-site can make sure that snakes in. Even as I increase the size. I've got it right in this center based on the gold lines here. Snapping happened to be on. And I'm gonna add a photo layer right on top. Go to black, go to my monoline brush. Teeny tiny size. And I'm just going to trace this. I can do one v at a time and let it snap. And I can just delete that start now I have a nice big crisp edge star because I used monoline brush. And I can save it as a jpeg and make a fresh out of it. So you can go ahead and go to that snowflake brush, duplicated sheep, edit, import. And if you don't want it to rotate every time, maybe you want it to be on a mug like this. Every time you can turn randomize off. I'm gonna go ahead and let randomized stay on. And I'm gonna turn this layer often. Let's say I have a mug. Let's say I have an amalgam stamping on and I decide I went a few different stars on there. That way. I know they're not all just going to be straight up and down because randomizes on. But let's say I do want them straight up and down or I just went when big star on the mag and I want it straight up and down. But I stamp in, it's like that. Well, I can just select it and rotate it. 8. Making a Beautiful Polka Dot Stamp: So we're going to Black, monoline big. Actually, sorry, we're gonna go to a dark grey pin of a medium dark gray. Kinda light at BB&N, smile. Do a lighter gray. We don't want the two big ones to be right next to each other. And a lighter gray. Save it as a jpeg. Turn that layer off or add a new layer. And we're just gonna go ahead and do a stamp brush. So you can do the star duplicate, guru, shape, import. Sorry you got a black background. And let's test it out. Great. So I know that every time I tap this is randomly choosing rotated position. And I can tap a whole bunch together to get a texture of polka dots. So what purpose does this have? And none of them are at full capacity because we didn't use black. Well, let's see what we can do with something like this. Now I am not a letter, so I'm just gonna make a big C. Clippy Moscow right on top. Goodwin, nice pale brown color and our new polka dot brush. You can also change your size as you go around. Hopefully you can see that. And because it's on a separate layer, you can change the blend mode and get all sorts of interesting links. And of course, depending on the color that your dot layer is, all of the blend modes will look different. And then of course, you can also play with opacity as well. 9. Hot Cocoa: Adding Color: Alright, it is time to start illustrating. I'm going to show you just a fun way to illustrate these mugs. And it says a fairly simple way that you can really have fun with and just make a lot of and play around with. And when you're done, you can make all sorts of things with them. I'll show you one thing here. You can make as seamless repeat pattern. You can also take a whole set of mugs with one color palette, duplicate those, and then changed the color palette. So here I have all of the same mugs in different colors. I think I read did the design on a couple of them, but most of them have the same design in I just changed the colors since they were all on different layers. I was able to do that pretty easily. So here's the mag we assembled earlier and we're gonna go ahead and merge those three elements. We have the mag, the marshmallows, and the handle and will just merge them into one layer. And I'm going to turn the opacity way down. I'm gonna start pretty low and I'm going to start on the handle. For this. I'm just making the handles go behind the mug and that just makes the Mclaughlin kids at a slight angle where it the handle is kind of facing that way and then you don't have to worry about how it looks, where the mug meets the ham, where the, where the handle meets the mug. So that's kind of a fun way to do it simply. And I'm going to just go to my monoline brush. You can use any brush. So I have winter pellet, winter when winter too and fall. So these are kind of two little mini pallets, three little mini palettes. This brown, red, and blue is meant to go with some whites and off whites. So you could use these two right here. These are great marshmallow color down here for fall, I have this bright pallet. I have this middle palette right here. And then this one is some nice pastel fall colors and it kind of has this kind of off-white that's kind of close to that pellet, but it's intended for that pellet, of course, you can use it wherever it clear my palette here, I'm just going to focus on these pinks and reds and browns. Thought Those are pretty. So the first thing I would do is get my color down. So if you have a simple handle like this, you could simply try to find the right width of the monoline brush and make a handle like that. If you have enough layers, I would recommend keeping your handle on a separate layer because later we're going to be using Clippy masks. And it would be nice to have the clove masks just clipped to this mug right here. So now I'm going to make the mug, but I'm gonna make it the same color. And I just realized I chose this color right here. So you can change that easily. You don't even need to alpha lock it, since it's a nice solid stripe of color. We can just go to the color we want and drag it right to it and it changes it. You can also alpha luck the layer and fill it either way. Alright, let's go up when I'm gonna go ahead and choose that pink and make just a pretty small size here. Now, I'm not going for the rim here, I'm just going for this front. But I wanna make sure I get all of the front. So it does kind of go up to the rim. I'm not going for a perfectly straight lines because I like that hand-drawn look. I've sort of wobbly lines. Not to wobbly them. You can of course do it in whatever look you prefer. And if you have a closed shape, you can just fill it this way. And on a layer above that, I'm gonna do the rim. I'm gonna go ahead and go back to that handle color. And I'm gonna make a nice thick RAM, I guess. So that just is a matter of preference here. It's just kind of a stylized kept here. And you can do the quick shape. So, so approximately trace your oval there. Let it snap to an oval. And then what I'm looking for on both sides is I want it to overlap the edge of my mug. So if this is the edge of my mug, I want the little rim to come out a little further. That's just the look I'm going for. I'm not perfectly and the center on both sides, but I'm going to move that later, some kind of taking that into account. And I've got a good size m and I put my finger on. And that makes it go, Snap Into the nice horizontal position there and let go. And while it still says Edit Shape, I can move that shape easily even if it's on another layer with other things. So if you end up exposing some of this pink, you can erase that later. So don't worry, just get that to where you want it. And let me show you a zoomed in what I've done here. I'm going to turn this sketch off. So I've just kind of come out a little bit on both sides. This pink is under that darker pink, but right now it's not exposed on this side of that rims, so I'm good. If it were exposed to you can just erase it right now. Alright? You have a couple of options for filling this. You can just use a reference layer. You can just go to a layer underneath this rim layer and pick a nice hot cocoa color and color it in manually. That way you can really make sure you get around the overlapped area of where the red meats that Brown. So that, that way is perfectly fine. But I'm going to show you how to use a reference later in this circumstance. So you just tap on that oval layer, tap it and tap reference. Go to a layer, enter it, and then drag and drop your color to the oval in it's gonna reference that oval and fill that layer under it with the color you chose. Make sure you turn reference off now, later, if you play around with drag and drop some more that color fill. And it's not doing what you expect it to do and you can't figure out what's going on. It's most likely because you forgot to turn reference off. And the program is still trying to use it as a reference later, I'm actually going to use it one more time. I am going to turn off that brown layer, add another layer right under the brown layer. And I'm going to add this pink mud colour, but I'm going to bring it down a little darker. And Phil, that's going to give it a shadowed look by being a little darker. Turn my brown layer back on. Let's turn reference off. And it turned the brown layer back on selected and slide it down. And here's what it's done. Let me zoom in. So pretend like this part's not here. I've made it look like you can see a bit of the wall of the mud back there. But I just need to erase this this little brown that's exposed underneath the RNC has my handles lookin really chunky here I continued to change the head. So we basically have our mug done except for decoration. I went to get our marshmallows on there. I want a marshmallow color. So I'm choosing this lightest one right here. I'm on the layer above everything else. Which does mean that I'll be able to draw here. And that's okay right now it's a few overlap. So we're gonna get this marshmallow. I'm really just doing the outline. Let me turn that sketch layer up so you can see this better. I'm doing the outline. We need to turn that background layer down a little bit. Here we go. The outline of the whole container or the whole thing of marshmallows here. Oh, my Rin comes down. I need to curve this marshmallow down so it looks like it's inside the rim there. Which means this is going to need to kind of be more parallel with that. Right? Close this up so I can drop my color. Now to get this erased perfectly where you want it. Go to that rim layer and the term a sketch layer off. Go to the rim and tab select. Now if you've recently used color fill, that might be turned on and it kinda messes with everything. So kind of before you do this step, make sure you've got color fill off. And you're just kind of add that basic select mode. I'm trying to figure out if that's a bug at this point. Now you can see, hopefully you can see, let me turn my selection mask visibility app so you can see it better. The rain is what's selected. All of these lined areas are not selected. Now I'm on the marshmallow layer and I'm going to erase. And wherever I erase, it's only going to be able to erase where that ring is. I only need to erase down here. But you could accidentally erase up here too. Okay. And now what you have is marshmallows that look like they're under the layer that the ring is on. And the reason we didn't put them under that layer is because then the ring would be showing on top of the marshmallows back here. So that just makes it look like the marshmallow layer is under the ring layer. Nice clean edge. Let's turn her Sketch back on, but I'm going to turn that down a little bit so we can barely see it. And now we have our base colors for everything and we can get decorating. 10. Hot Cocoa: Adding Design Elements: So for this, I like to use Clippy masks and just go into a mass, a layer above this mug and turning on a clipping mask. And depending on what steps you made, you can go crazy. You can stamp all over your mug. You can, that's quite big. This is where it's nice that the handle is on a separate layer. If it wasn't on a separate layer, this stamp would go over to be showing on that handle as well. So you can use your stamps, you can use any brushes on top to, to decorate it. I like using the Model, a brush to do things like some plaid. So we're going to need two layers for that. Let's do some plaid this way. And now you can turn those layer's opacity way down. I don't turn the brush opacity way down when I start because that brush kind of funny. When the opacity is down. I'm going to turn those way down and make it kind of in the background, sort of look. And then you can continue onto other Clippy masks and more designs, more colors. Anything you want, you can overlap designs. Maybe you want to use the myelin brash on a really big setting to make some circles. And then on another layer above that could be Moscow, of course, you can see how we're getting really heavy into the Clippy masks. On hopes on maybe this snowflake. Think I'm gonna go whiter with that. Kinda chose the off-white. So you can see how you can just go on and on and on and on. I'm gonna go to that Taotie brush. I'm gonna show you something about the Taotie brush. This size is just making the shape big. But if you want a dotted line that's a little bit more spread out. You can go into the brush, go ahead and make changes. And you can go into a right here spacing. And this is how far apart each of those little dashes are. So you can increase it and the space between them will increase. So it's an 89% now. And you can see, oh, that's interesting. So I didn't realize that was going to happen. So the size of the stamp actually got smaller. But there's a bigger space between. You can also go ahead and go into the properties and 10K this size. Now the preview you make, you have to make all these changes. But you know how now, because we went through all these things in class, that's big O, right? So I just reset it back to normal. And yeah, you can do all sorts of fun little decorations. Once you're done with your declarations, do yet another clipping mask. Set this one to overlay and your color to black. You should be able to do some shadows and some highlights using overlays in black and white. I'm not even looking at a reference photos, so this is just really super stylized. I'm going to, even though I can't see what I'm doing over here because it's a clipping mask and I know I'm starting in this general area, so I want to close my shape when I'm done and you'll see what I mean in a second. I making kind of a shadow on the mug over here. I'm gonna scoot back around, back to the beginning and then I can drag and drop. And of course I would want to turn the opacity down. You might not want to. And you can play around with other blend modes. It doesn't have to be Overlay. But now that you're on overlay, you can go to white. And you might want to add some, Oops, we're not on the clipping mask for that side. You could add some highlights. That one I don't think looks so good with the white stripes that are already on there. So I'm just going to leave the shadow. You can go directly if you're feeling like there's too many layers, you could go directly to the handle layer and add some highlights. I wouldn't do bright white that you can do any decoration. You went look at reference photos, see where your highlights are. What I like to do with the handle is the same as what I just did over here. So I'm making a clipping mask, turning it to Overlay, go into black. And then I just like to darken the inner part. Just like that. Turn the opacity down. You know how the handles are there, kinda dark on the inside there. And the marshmallows. So the marshmallows can get a clipping mask is well, how many layers do we have so far? Maybe like ten or 12. Not too bad for this type of illustration. So I'm gonna turn that opacity way down. I can still see it. I'm not sure you can in the video, so just make sure you can still see your illustration, your outline. For this type of illustration, where it's a fairly flat look. I don't want a bunch of texture on my marshmallows. So what I'm gonna do is keep it on monoline. And I'm just gonna choose a slightly creamish or color or a slightly gray or color. And I'm just going to darken some areas. So you could just choose to darken the little circles on top. This one's kinda heard car where to darken? I might darken this part and see what it looks like. Yeah, that's not bad. And we can turn this sketch, we are off and see how that looks like. It may zoom in so you can see it. And if you went sprinkles, which normally you would want on the whipped cream, your sprinkled brush would not be on a clipping mask and that allows it to be kind of on top of the marshmallows instead of just cut off right at the edge of the marshmallows there. And we did make this brush kind of go a little crazy all over the place so that the little sprinkles aren't too clustered together. So you might have an occasional went that you need to erase that's kind of like this one floating. You could either just grab it and move it or just erase it. Think it's okay if they're floating a little bit when they're touching the marshmallow, been up floating in mid air. Oh, that looks so good. Alright, one more thing is if you want a shadow, go all the way down to a bottom layer, no clipping mask. And let's just get let's just get a grey, kind of a medium grey and quarter. Go to monoline brush. And we're gonna do a super, super simple shadow. We are going to make an oval that's a little bit bigger. But our finger down so it snaps to 90 degrees or not 90 degrees but to horizontal. Fill it and turn the opacity down. You can move it off to the side. Let's see. This side is shadowed, so we would move it off to this side. So the light is over here, so the shadow might be over there. It would be over there. If you turn that into a different blend mode, I like multiply. It'll stay more of a shadow color when you change your background color. So it kind of blends with the whatever background color you've chosen. Rather than just stay in gray. It makes it a darker version of whatever color you are choosing. So there's when version using quite a few brushes that we made to decorate. Of course, you can do whip cream and steam for the steam, let me add some steam really, really quick. Let's just go up here on the same layer. Nope, not on the same layer will go to a new layer. Let's just do pretty close to Hawaii. You can do light gray. I'm gonna do my monoline brush at it. Pretty tiny size there. And I know we have stamps for this, but I'm just gonna kinda do this really quick. Drag and drop color. And all I do is either dropped the opacity on those, or I erase with a texture, a brush, like with this Jens damp brush. I can kinda erase, erase, erase. So that's how I would do steam. All right, it's a beautiful mag. Now if you did a whole bunch of different styles and mugs and similar, you know, a nice color palette. You would have beautiful mugs to make all sorts of different things like a set of greeting cards. Here's a super simple little greeting card that I just threw together as an example. How about invitations to a hot cocoa party? You could do something like if anybody does scrapbooking, digital scrapbooking, you can make really fun digital paper, digital scrapbook pages. This kinda has a chalkboard feel. I added some texture on top with the Niko rule brush. And now I'm going to go through in the next video and show you some of the other cups that I've done. 11. Taking a Look at a Variety of Styles: So here I have done a red and black when I did some hand lettering on it. If you do this, when you use it later, you can't flip it or the lettering will be backwards. So keep that in mind. I did are nice bubble brush on it. Here's the shape we did in class. I did send zigzags with my monoline brush and then just turned it up to bigger size to do the little circles on the n and the little tips of those. This is when that I just did black plaid. So that was really fun. And I'm going to show you how to get a nice swirly hot cocoa there as super fun one here I did a straw with our straw stamp. You recognize all these stamps? Let me show you the way I, why I added the sprinkles to the same layer as the whip cream, but you can see I just used a darker layer on the underside of each of those sections of whipped cream. To keep it nice and simple. There's a nice fun Tom mug, my kinda mug. I use the Taotie brush to make circles around. And then these are more exactly the same thing. I just did, some different colors. So I duplicated that whole Candace. And then I just came through and alpha locked in changed colors. So I have all the illustration parts done and all I had to do because everything was still on separate layers. All I had to do was come through and change colors. And because of that, I have two entirely different patterns that I made with the same mugs that different colors. Here's a very different way from what we've been doing in class, which is just a more textured look. So it still has the cinnamon stick. But I really used some nice texture brushes here. If you're curious about which brushes. These are from Lai half these pressures in multiple classes, but the most recent class is the pastel succulents class. So this is my wide pencil brush and I kind of use it like a pastel brush, works really well. This is another fun when let me just change the background color so it's a little easier to see. I used a lot of blend modes on this when just had fun with all those little straight son the leaves. And then the streaks on the mug itself. Here's one where I did have the handle attaching to the mug on the side where you can see it. Just kinda rounded it out. Here is a style that's more of an outline style. And I use the reference layer for this. So I drew with a studio pen in the inking section. I just drew tracing our stamps when I laid out the stamps, drew everything on there. And then use a used color fill on these little pieces because dragging and dropping colour to teeny tiny pieces is hard. So I use color fill and then on the bigger areas I just use a reference photo or the reference layer right here. And filled, then added a little highlight here and here. No shadow on this one. Well, I have that shadow, but no shadow on the mug. So you can really do all sorts of things. And I wanted to show you the way that I typically do it when I'm not doing kinda stylized Link. I like having the rim and the whole mug down here all on the same layer. So that when I am adding texture and highlights and stuff, that rim isn't so separate, it will receive those same highlights. So what I have here is the mug all on one layer. I did do a dark area in the back. I have the handle on a separate layer and then I have the hot cocoa on a separate layer on top. So the whipped cream is a stamp that I have I traced from a freeze photo or I can't remember if I trace this one. I think I did. And this is more of a more of a typical whipped cream that comes out of a can, not the dollops so much. So for a shadowing on this, when I just looked at the underside of each one of these little loops. Well, it looks like I darken this whole bottom section, but I just did a darker area in a kind of curved them up. So that's on a separate layer and then sprinkles. I want to show you really quick how I get it more of a textured look. So I'm going to do this Meg for you next. 12. Bonus Video: Textural Illustration: So we're gonna go ahead and add a clipping mask to our mud layer. And you can go to our color changing guage brush and maybe just choose that grain. Maybe darken it a little bit. So this brush again, if you press harder, it's darker. So you can easily get your shadows that way. I'm hoping you can see this. And now you can see that anything I do, it's doing it to the whole mud even way back there. So I'm going to need to make sure I come back later to make highlights and shadows back there. So this precious darker when you press and his kin and getting some nice texture here and they're all over here. You see that? While I'm at it, I might go ahead and do a clipping mask on the handle and do the same thing. Probably go in line with the handle on that one and then maybe come up to a higher highlight color, a little bit more yellow and maybe a little darker under here. Hopefully this is a background color that works. I'll just go black. Alright, we need another clipping mask. Sign back on my mag layers using Clippy masks here in this brushes and to include it in class. Because this is kind of a little bonus lesson just to show you how I get a lot of texture with may work. But if you go to the Fall Halloween brushes from my fall class and go to this particle storm brush. We're going to stay on the green. But I'm gonna go ahead and turn my layer to multiply for now and that will automatically make it look darker and assume away. And so you can see, and I'm just kind of dab, you get these much more solid speckles. But if you just kind of wrap it around, you get a nice subtle speckle. And while I'm at it so I can keep the consistency, I'm going to do the handle as well. Turn it to multiply. I'm not gonna go for it stayed on normal. Now I need to I don't know why it's not stayed. I multiply. There we go. I need to clear it and start over. Alright, I'm just going for a lighter texture of speckles on the brush there are on the handle, there. All right. And then on top of all of that, not on a clipping mask, I'm not going to cover my whipped cream, whip cream with this. But I like to go to a pretty dark color like dark grey or black and go to the Hertzsprung, gosh. Now I have that in this same set of brushes from that class that the speckle per particle storm brushes. And I'm going to just lightly go over. Now this isn't a clipping mask, so this is going to and also be on the whole canvas. And I would normally do the whole canvas with this brush. And then it's already set to overlay him. Not sure when that happened. Did I do that? And then just play around to so my textures that I get, yeah, you can see how it's everywhere. I really just play play play with blend modes. And if I don't get a look that I like with the color that I've chosen. I then go to a different color. So I can also change the opacity, which is probably all I'm gonna do here. But I can also just go to hue saturation and brightness and brighten it to a lighter gray. So you can't really see it very well, but it brightened it to a later grade. And then I can go through my blend modes again. And I can see how they're all being affected with a gray. And you can not just do shades of black and you can do any color. I like some of these lighter ones though. So for now I'm just gonna stick with overlay amnesty him away and, and I'm going to toggle this on and off so you can see kind of look over here more. So it's subtle. And then I'll turn the particle storm brush off so that you can see the heart's pressure a little bit better. And the reason I do these over the top of the base colors being also multiple textures, multiple colors is the blend modes are affected by the color you use, but also the color it's on. So this hurts layer is different in this darker green area than it is in this lighter green area, for example. Now, I do want those to clip. I need those to clip onto the MAC. So I'm gonna go ahead and bring this down and make that a clipping layer for the mag. And I'm gonna duplicate it and make a clipping layer could be a mask for the handle. And that way, if I want to change my background color, I don't have that hurts brush way out here, exposed. We have here already and then I would probably go around and add some highlights, mostly around the rim. So I would also want that to be on a clipping mask probably underneath. The texture layers so that the texture is applied to those. And I would go probably just to my 6B, maybe to the color changing wash to keep a consistent look. And then go to a lighter green. And think about where the highlights would be. On an illustration like this with all this texture, I would probably add some texture to this too because I would want it to be a more consistent overall look. So that's just something that you can play around with as well. You can go ahead and go to a clipping mask on top of it all. And the colors, the texture on White and other lights is going to behave differently. So if you go back to the heart's brash and maybe let's try. Let's just try dark in. I can't remember and just go to pain of a white color and just kind of play around. So that is visible. You can see it, but it's kind of blending with that color right there. Let's try another color. Yeah, that works better. So it again, it's all trial and error. So that's all I ever do. And then play around with blend modes and opacity. And now that has a little bit of texture as well. If I want, I can go ahead and add texture to all the sprinkles as well by doing the same exact thing I just did with another clipping mask on top of the sprinkles. Now finally, I'm gonna take alpha lock off, which I had on that mug layer. I'm gonna go ahead and turn my background black so we can really see this. I don't want this crisp monoline brush edge. So I'm going to go to liquefy crystal and play around. I don't want too much distortion. And you can play around with roughing up the edge there. So all you have to do is go around the whole thing and get that nice woo roughed up edge. And I'd probably do it for the handle as well. I'm just doing a quick job of it here. I have the setting to actually make it faster work of it. So there you go. Now I don't have now I have a textured edge for my textured illustration. For the other ones, I had a nice crisp edge with crisp lines in the illustration as well. Another brush that I might choose to use on this when it from the fall, when is the spotty stamp? Kind of middle gray pick when. Go to another cool Libyan mask on top of them mug. And just add some spots to that. Play around with blend modes. So here I've made them darker and they've turned them way down. I'd probably play around with some shadows over here as well. So you can do that with anything. Nico rule is said, great brush for texture. But there were definitely be some shadows over here around that handle. Right? Now you know how I make some of my textured illustrations like my knowns. So for this nome, i did the speckles. I did some Nico rule here and this dark areas Nico rule, which is a procreate native fresh. I did those body stampede when up there on the hat along with Niko rule, I have the Hertz brush overall over the whole thing. And I also made the Marshall is much more textured. Instead of how I showed you on the other 11 more thing I can't forget about is just showing you a super quick way to make some swirls in your hot cocoa. If you added Clippy mask to your chicago layer and get a nice creamy brown pillar. You could just mix and squiggles. There's a few ways you can do this and then go to liquefy and twirl, right? If you have your distortion all the way app, it's going to make a lot of twirls in, in your little circle. In the circle that's your brush cursor, cursor. So you can really play around. With that. You can go to push and really move it around to the perfect spot once you do that. And then you can play around with blend modes. Opacity, add another layer that's not a blend mode because I don't want this crisp edge here and get, maybe they dry ink brash, or just my 6B might work and make a little kind of foamy edge, very irregular kind of hide staff vote. The crisp line for this textured illustration. You know, Hilda, foamy bubbles kind of spread out to the edges. And then you whip cream skin to cover the rest of that so we can turn those back on. Here. Dow. Enjoy. 13. Class Project: Your class project is to make one mug with your own stamps that are different from the ones we used in class, the ones we created together in class. So find Sam inspirational photos like I showed you, and come up with your own Hamel shape. I know this is a pretty classic handle shapes, so F0 is the same one. That's totally fine of course. And but come up with your own. And you know, of course, the number of brushes that you can make is just limitless. So you can make all sorts of maybe snowflake brushes and starburst stars instead of just five pointed star, all sorts of things. But the mug shape is the one I really want you to focus on for the class project, I'd like to see what you can do making your own manga shape and then illustrating it. You can use this style. Of course. You can use your favorite style that you love to use. Any palette you want. What I'm going to be looking at is your mug. Have fun with it? And again, having a whole bunch of these means that you can assemble these really quickly and have a wide variety to do all sorts of things. So I hope you enjoyed class and learned a lot about dressmaking. Come on over to my Facebook group and instagram. Tag me sharing the group. I have a really friendly, safe place to share in my Facebook group and all of its LinkedIn, my skill share profile. See you there.
