About This Class

Have you just gotten your sparkly new iPad and want to get drawing? Have you already used Procreate and wanna learn more about its brushes, blending methods and inner secrets? Wanna just learn more about drawing in a cartoony/comic book way? You're in the right place! Procreate is THE app for drawing and painting on your iPad - trust me. 

In this class I'm going to break down in 3 easy steps the process of drawing a cartoony portrait starting from a reference picture, as well as give you useful insight on sketching the human body and a full introductory overview of Procreate App.

If you DON'T HAVE an iPad you can take my class Turn a Photo into a Cartoony Artwork (in 3 easy steps) for Photoshop, OR, you can follow my tips by using pen and paper - the fundamentals of sketching are the same whatever the means!

No or very little experience is required for this, as I'm going guide you step by step, just pop on the Apple Store and download Procreate. 

At the end of the class you will have a beautiful digital artwork of yourself, a friend or a loved one and I'd love to see the result of your hard work! As I did for my previous class I'm going to give shoutouts to some of you guys on my social media (Instagram: mlm_illustration) so please upload your projects, I'd love to see them!
