About This Class

Join artist Nic Squirrell in making a cute and quirky monster using the Procreate app on your iPad.  

In this 26 minute class you'll be taken step by step through Nic's process from initial sketches to finished art.

Nic will show you how she comes up with a colour palette, things to think of when designing the character, how to use the Procreate app to sketch, draw and paint the monster, and how to export the finished art ready to use on products.

You will end up with a fabulous monster in your own style.

This class is suitable for everyone from experienced artists to creative doodlers.  No previous experience with Procreate is needed. 

Let's unleash some monsters!  Mwahahahaha...

(No monsters were harmed in the making of these videos)

This is a great class. If you have purchased an ipad and procreate and don't know where to start, this is for you. so many good tips and I loved it!
Love this class and Nic! So much fun and Nic made it so easy! I'm looking forward to creating more monsters and other art on my iPad.
I highly, highly recommend this class - Nic helps you build confidence by sketching something that brings all the creativity out of you - never thought that monsters could be cute and so much fun to draw. From colour inspiration, to sketching and the ability to make edits without having to start from scratch - it's a great class. & best of it all - it's short and sweet and easy to follow. You can also apply all the techniques to draw monsters to other objects you would like to draw. Thank you Nic!
