Creating faceless portraits is fun and easy with Procreate. Let's get started. 2. Minimalist Portraits: Choosing a Photo: So now let's talk about what makes a good versus a bad photo. There really is no such thing as a bad photo. It's more that it'll be difficult to achieve results easily with some photos over others. So let's take a look at some of those challenging type of photos that I would recommend avoiding when you're getting started with this technique. I have pulled up, which is a great site full of free photos and graphics. And I searched for couples. So now let's take a look at some things to try to avoid. Here we have a photo where the couples head is has been cut off. So I would avoid anything where parts of the person are cut off if it will interrupt how you want the end result to look. And in this case, I think it would be detrimental for them to be missing the top of their heads. This one is another example where his head is cut off even though she's entirely in the picture. Either you would have to fill in the rest of his head or you would crop it exactly the same way as in the photo. You also want to be careful of certain types of lighting. Like this is a lovely photo here of this couple standing in a field. But the light, the sunlight coming in from behind them really obscures a lot of the details in the face. And even though this is a minimalist portrait technique, it just makes it more difficult to achieve that same look and part of the charm of this photo is the lighting. Likewise, this photo is too dark, and because of that, it really wouldn't make a great starting point. You also want to be careful of photos where your subject is just too small. So yes, we could zoom in, but we lose a lot of detail in doing that. And again, even though we are not capturing a lot of detail in these minimalistic portraits, you still need to be able to see where the hair line starts and the face starts. So you would miss out on those important details. You also want to be careful about where details are obscured. This one. So this is great. She's obscured a little bit by this plant in the foreground, but could probably get around that. Or a lot of the face is obscured by the hair. So it just makes it more challenging to create a really good result from that. And then you also want to make sure that the scenery is not crucial to the story of the photo that you'll be using. So for instance, in this one, we have the man pointing to the mountain or across the lake there to the mountain. And even if we put mountains in, it's again, they're small. So that's an issue. And there has to be something that he's pointing to. So you can't just have a plain background in that one because the pointing would be pointless. So now let's take a look at an example of a photo that would be easy to translate into a minimalist portrait. I found this one right here of a couple. The background is already out of focus, which is perfect. They are squarely in the center and they are in-focus. There's nice contrast between their skin and their clothes. Which helps but is not totally necessary of course. And they could be standing in front of anything and it would still convey them as a couple. So we're gonna go ahead and download this photo. Pixabay is free. You can just sign up for an account using your Google or Facebook account, or sign in with an email address. And then you can download for free. And you can download in a variety of sizes. Using the Procreate on the iPad, you don't need a file or a photo that has a huge file size unless the subject is small and then the larger the photo, the better because as you zoom in, you'll get, you won't lose as much detail. In this case. We're fine in doing. I usually do somewhere in the medium range of things. So we'll go ahead and download that. All right, Now we're ready to go over to procreate and get started. 3. Minimalist Portraits: Setting Up Your Canvas in Procreate: Setting up your canvas in Procreate will vary depending on what your project is. But you need to know how the final product is going to be used in order to set up your canvas. So if you or your client are going to make a poster size, then you're going to want to make sure that you create a Canvas that will have a high enough resolution to print well, at that size. If you're just doing an eight by 10 or smaller, then you can use a smaller canvas size. Again, that will be large enough to get a good quality print if that's what they're ultimately planning to use it for. So the bottom line is to think about the largest you're going to have this product and you make a canvas size that will accommodate that. So you may be thinking, why not just always start with a huge canvas size. And in part because the larger the canvas, the fewer the layers that you'll have available to work with. The number of layers is also affected by the size of your iPad. So I'm using an iPad Pro. I believe it's a first gen iPad Pro. And depending on the gigabyte size that you have, the memory size will also affect it. So mine has a pretty good memory. And I can accommodate more layers than some people can with a smaller iPad or someone with a smaller memory. In iPad. You'll also be able to find out how many layers once you determine the size of your canvas. And I'll give you some workarounds in case you do run out of layers. And if you're confused about the whole layer thing, have no fear. We're going to get into how layers work once we open a canvas. So we're going to assume for the photo that we downloaded from Pixabay, that our client just wants to print an 8 by 10. And so I'm gonna go ahead and click on the plus to get a new canvas. And I already have a bunch of different presets, some of which came with with procreate and some that I have added in doing various projects. But if I click on this button here, then it will show me the custom Canvas screen. And then I can create a whole new canvas. So if I know that the final product is going to be eight inches wide, and I'll click on height and type in 10. And then the DPI, which is the dots per inch. 72, is great if it's only going to be shown on a screen. But if it's going to be printed, you want at least 300 DPI. Now you'll notice that when I typed in 300, the maximum number of layers changed from 250 down to 70. 70 is plenty of layers. And if I had a much larger canvas, then I would have even fewer layers. But I'm happy with that. So let's go ahead and create that one-sided vice here too. If you wanted to change the name than I could just type in portrait. And then hit Create. 4. Minimalist Portraits: Creating a Color Palette: Alright, let's get started. I'm just going to pinch my canvas down so I can see the entire thing on the screen. And we want to go ahead and bring in the photo that we downloaded. So if I click on the wrench making sure that the ad tab is highlighted, then I can choose between inserting a file and inserting a photo, taking a photo, and adding texts. But we're more concerned with these first two. If the photo that you downloaded or that you have is in the photos app on your iPad, then you would insert a photo. That file that I downloaded from Pixabay is actually in the files. So I'm going to click on insert file. And there it is. And it brings it right in. Now, the great thing is, is that I can go ahead and maneuver it on the canvas, making it larger or smaller, and I do not have to cover the canvas. If I wanted the couple to be just down here in the corner, perhaps I was going to add some sort of text. Maybe it was an engagement announcement or something along those lines and I needed a lot more blank space around them. That's fine. In this case, though they are the subject of this. And I want to make sure that I have them where I want them on the photo or on the canvas. And that looks pretty good and you can see it doesn't quite come to the edge. And I'm fine with that. Like I said, we're going to put in our own background and so it won't matter anything that's in the photo. Now once I do click on the Selection button, then any part of this photo that is off of the canvas will be gone and I will not be able to retrieve it. I would have to go back and reinsert the original photo. So click on that. And now let's take a look at the layers. So the layer button is this one right here. And when I brought that photo in, and then it automatically went onto the first layer. Now, a good habit to get into is to rename your layers. So I just clicked on the little layer icon there. Click on Rename. Can use my pencil to type over. And I'm going to write photo. And then if I just click anywhere or tap anywhere, it will Lafayette name in. I don't want to draw anything on this particular layer. I want to go ahead and add a new layer and I do that right away. One of the things that I like to do in order to get started is to create a palette of colors, then I'm going to use. For the entire thing. Again, the concept here is minimalist, so we don't want 20 different colors. We want to try to keep it down to the smallest number that still gives you the look and feel of what the original photo is. And procreate makes this very easy. So I'm on layer 2. You can see that's the one that's highlighted. I'm going to click on the little paint brush here. And I'm on the calligraphy tab, and I have mono line. And that's what I'm going to use to create my pallets now to find a color. It's really easy. So just taking your finger, you're going to tap and hold. And you get this little icon that pops up and you can see the top half of it keeps changing color depending on where the little cross in the center. I'll bring it over so you can maybe see it a little better. It's hard with my finger in the way. Yeah. But wherever that that little cross here is, that is the color that it's picking up. So if I want to go to her skin and I can kind of find a color that maybe not too light, but that looks kinda skin tone. And I can adjust these later. This just gives me a good a good basis. So once I have that, the color has actually changed here on the color palette. And then I just go up in the corner and doodle in a circle with that color. Now I'm gonna go ahead and pick another color. So let's see his skin tone, whether that's much different. Again, I go into someplace that's light but that has color and that's a pretty good skin tone color. And you can see it's a little darker than hers, which is that bottom half of the circle. That's the last color that was used. We may find that that's a little too dark later on, but that's okay. It gives us a good starting point. All right. Let's take a find a good color for her hair. If you accidentally, like I did, put color down where you don't want to just tap with two fingers and that will undo what you last did. Yeah. They're pretty close. I might even be able to use just one brown between those. Although his does look the launder there, maybe we'll pick up this kind of blonde color on this side. Somewhere in there. Alright. Now they both happen to be wearing blue. I like the nice dark blue. So we'll go ahead and pull that in as well. Now, they also both have sunglasses on. And the sunglasses appear to be a bit of a dark gray and have a little bit of transparency to them. I would venture to say we could use this really dark navy for those. And I'll show you how to potentially add some, some transparency for that. But the other thing that striking in this photo is her lipstick. So let's go ahead and get that color. And that's going to add a nice contrast. So my palette is currently sitting on top of the blue background of the photo. So let's momentarily turn off the photo. And now we can see how those colors work. 5. Minimalist Portraits: Creating the Portrait Part 1: Now that I have my color selected, it will make it much easier to go and re-select those colors using that same technique of holding my finger down until like the color gets picked. And I want to go to the photo I tapped on the N, which stands for normal. That's the blending mode. We don't need to worry about that. And I'm gonna go ahead. It's a little easier with my finger here. And just kinda bring down the opacity of the photo to be much less. It'll make it easier to see lines as we go to trace over the photo. And I can just tap anywhere on the screen to collapse that, that menu. All right, let's add another layer. And before we get too far, we should rename this layer palette. All right, and then make sure that you tap on layer 3. That should be the one that's in blue so that you know, that's the layer that you are currently working on. Yeah, I'll collapse that. And let's start with his face. So I'm gonna go ahead and select this color. I'm still in my mono line, which is on the calligraphy menu. It comes with procreate. So everybody has that. If you have Procreate and you can adjust the size of the brush, you can see getting bigger and smaller there. And you can increase and decrease the opacity. So I have it set to a 100 percent. And how could it be kind of in the mid-range here, which looks like about 30% for my brush size. And then we're just gonna go ahead and trace over his face. Now I kind of overshot there. So just two fingers and tap on the screen and that'll erase it. And let's come now a little closer. Now you may notice that I didn't trace his neck. And in part that is because I want to keep the face on a separate layer then his neck. And this will become clear in just a little bit. Now that I haven't created a closed shape, an open shape would be one where something could get in and out. And a closed shape has a definitive outside and inside. So now that it's a closed shape, I can drag over my color dot. Oops, maybe it's not as close as I thought. It's not. No worries. You can see where I started and stopped here. I just need to close that up. Now. There we go. Perfect. Don't need to worry about about his hairline. Matter of fact, let's keep that zoomed in. And let's add a new layer. We're going to turn off the face for a moment. Same color for right now. New layer. And we're going to go ahead and trace his neck area now because ultimately we're going to put this neck area underneath the face layer. It's currently on top, but we're going to move it. I'll show you how then I don't need to worry so much about being exact around his chin line. And I included the ER with a face. So now if I trace neck and I can even kinda go essentially under his clothes because the shirt will put on top of the neck as well. I do need to be more exact there. And then I'll just close those off. Drop that in. And now let's go ahead and rename some of these. So, alright, so now to move the face so that it is on the layer on top of the neck. We're going to just take this layer and hold. Oops, I'm sorry, I'm still in the typing. There we go. Now we're done typing, click and hold. And then I can just drag that to be above. Turn that one back on. Now it's hard to tell that they're a little bit different. But let's make his neck just a tad bit darker so that you'll be able to see the difference. So with the neck layer selected, I'm gonna go over to my colors. And I'm just going to move the color dodge just to be a little bit darker. And I come here, I'm going to click to get the menu. Click on Select, and it automatically filled color minus set up. So with the direct selection tool, then my color fill is turned on. So if yours didn't change color, then you just need to tap the Color Fill button here. And if I tap that, then I'm back out. So now you can see how that worked. And we're going to adjust colors in a little bit, so no need to worry about that now. So let's continue with him and the flesh tone. And now let's go back to that original color. Since it was the color that I used prior to the neck color. I just have to hold the color button for a moment and it switches back. Now, I want a new layer for the arm. And I'm going to place that above the face for now. Be sure I'm on that layer. Again, it's going to get covered by the shirt so I can go up into the shirt. The pants are a little tricky because part of his hand is in the pocket. So you would think, Oh, I could go in that way, but then his thumb is sticking out. Couple of ways that you can get around that. I can draw the thumb on a separate layer that will go on top. But in this case, I think it's just easier to go right along the pocket line. And follow the arm up. There we go. And then I can cap off. Try that dot over and it fills it in. Let's rename that layer. And we are making great progress. Alright, now, let's go ahead and turn off his face for a moment so that we can do his hair. So we're going to need a new layer for that. And we had this hair color over here. So I'm going to click and hold on that to color, select that color. And we'll zoom in. Let's turn the face back on and zoom in. We can see that there, there is a gap there, so something has to give and it's probably best if it's hair. So I'm still on the hair layer, I'm still in the hair color. All right. And that's looking pretty good. All right. So now let's take a look at his shirt. I'm going to pinch in so I can see all of it. I'm not gonna I'm gonna go ahead and draw his entire shirt. Disregarding his arm there for the moment because we'll be able to place the arm on top. And actually now that I look at it, I'm gonna do his sleeve as one piece and then the rest of it as the other. That way the sleeve can be on top of the arm and the rest of the short can be under the arm. And we'll change up the layers in a little bit. So let's create a new layer. And we're going to go ahead and select that navy color. And let's start with the sleeve. And now let's create a new layer. And this one is going to be for the shirt. So I just have to guess through here doesn't matter because the arm is going to cover that part up. But then I need to be more accurate up here. And I'm going to come over and turn off the neck so I can better see where the shirt is going. Now again, the short disappears behind her. So I don't have to be real accurate. I can just come down like this and then we'll go across to there. So now I have a full shape. Let me turn off the sleeves so you can see. And with that shape, I can fill that in as well. So let me turn that sleeve back on. But of course, I'll turn on his neck as well. So the neck is good because it is below the shirt, but we need the arm to be over top of the short layer. So I'm going to take the arm and I'm going to move that up, just dragging and holding that up. And then the sleeve should actually also be on top of the arm. And there we have it. So we have the sleeve and then the arm and then the shirt, and then the neck and so forth down there. So the only thing left to do on him are his jeans. And I realize now I didn't really pick a color for that, but we can easily enough. So let's go back to our photo layer. And I tap on the end so I can bring up the opacity screen, making sure that I'm on my palette layer to add that color in. And then I'm gonna go back to my photo and the opacity back down. Then let's do another layer now. I know that the pants need to be under the arm and also under the shirt. And so I can come down here to the hair layer, which is the next layer underneath of those. And then if I hit the make a new layer button with the plus sign, then that's where it places. The layer just saves me some time having to move those layers around so that since the genes color is the last color that I used, it's already in my color selector and I can just go ahead. Now just to double-check, let me turn off, make sure that I have an enclosed shape and I do. I'm still on that genes layer. Pop that in there, turn back on those other layers. And he is done. Now, there's obviously going to be some adjusting isn't neck is really a little too dark. But for right now, we've got all of his pieces in place except for the glasses. And we're gonna go do the glasses at the very end for both couples, since there'll be for both peoples and so they will be the same. So now what I'm gonna do is group all of his pieces together. So I've selected the topmost layer, which happens to be asleep. And then if I just slide each of his pieces, then that selects all of those. I can hit group. And then I'm going to rename the group. 6. Minimalist Portraits: Creating the Portrait Part 2: So now we're gonna take a look at working on on her or gal over here. I can actually turn off all of his layers in one fell swoop, since they are now a group, I'm going to add a new layer on top. And much like we did with him, we're going to start with the skin. All right, and then we'll do a new layer. I'm going to turn off the face layer for a moment so that I can better see the area. And for this we're going to do her neck and chest. And I don't have to be really exact at the close because of clothes, you're going to come back and cover that. But I do want to be exact on the sides of the neck. And yet another new layer. And this one will be for her arm area. And if you miss a spot, like I really didn't go quite far enough there. It's all right. Here. Draw this in. This is her shoulder here. And, you know, I think I might keep that as one layer and do her her shoulder blade as another. And so with that in mind, I'm going to come and just erase out these extra bits here. I could do it all as one piece, but it will be solidly one color and make it a little harder to distinguish her arm from her shoulder. We'll do one more layer. Turn off her arm for a moment. And since this layer will be below and go ahead and move it right now, then I don't really need to worry about being exact with where the arm is. I just need to worry about it's going to smooth that out. It kind of goes in and out a little bit, but I think it'll be fine now when I go to fill that, it will not fill that little spots. So color that in. Fill that. And we'll go ahead and turn our face back onto. So now let's go ahead and work on her hair. And even though I just turned the face on and then turn it off and I'll turn off our neck for a moment so we can better see. So this portion of her hair comes over her face and this portion of her hair is behind. So I'm going to make those on two separate layers. And I'll come down here and the layer so that it is below her face. Again, that part is going to be covered by her face. And we have a couple of these little fly away pieces. Now let's create a new layer. This one needs to be above her face because it's going to be over top. And as I'm looking here, this portion of her hair is behind, It's really behind everything. So let's go ahead and make, oops. I accidentally hit it twice. That's alright. We'll use this layer for the behind and then we'll move this layer up for this portion of the hair, will do it all in the same color. So again, that part is going to be behind. So I'm gonna go ahead and add some of these bits where the background is showing through, it'll give some interest. And then on this layer which will move to be above everything. Even though this line is going to be covered up when I go to drag my color over. Sometimes it's nice to get that motion of the sweep of hair. Alright, let's turn our parts back in. All right, that's looking pretty good. Now we need to work on her dress. So we, in some ways have two parts of the dress here. We have this part which is going to be under the arm, but it might be above the shoulder and it's definitely above the neck. So above the neck. Above the shoulder. Let's put that piece right there. We're doing the same blue. And I will turn off the arm and the shoulder and the hair. Right? So there's a little bit of the dress back here. On that same layer. I think I'm gonna do this little portion back here as well. And then we have the lower part, which is also below her arm. So it looks like technically I could do that on the same layer, but let's just to be safe, we have plenty of layers. We're gonna go ahead and do that on a separate layer. Alright, let's turn all of her layers back on. All right, as we did for I'm going to go ahead and turn his also makes it easier to see what's happening here. So as we did for him, like I do, I have a spot missing here. So let's go back to dress layer. So just like we did for him, we're going to go ahead and select all of her layers, grouped them together, close up my group. And we are well on our way. 7. Minimalist Portraits: Making Adjustments: Now that we have both portraits done, we can go ahead and add those last few details that will help to really make these portraits pop. One detail is the sunglasses, and I'm going to add those in, in such a way that you can make them a little transparent to give the illusion of sunglass lenses. And you can also leave them out completely. So at least you'd be able to look at what it would be with the sunglasses and then without the sunglasses. And we're also going to add the girls read lips, which I think will really make her face stand out a bit better. So to do the sunglasses and the lips, we need to turn off their faces. So I'm going to go ahead and open up the layers of our guy here and find face, turn him off. And then for the girl, find face, turn that off. Perfect. Now, of course her lips and need to be above that. And so let's go ahead and start with the lips. So I'm selecting her face and I'm going to add a layer so that that layer will be on top of the face. And using the red that we picked earlier, I'm going to go ahead and draw in her lips. Now for the sunglasses. A cool trick is to do just the lenses and not worry so much about the frames. And to do those, I'm gonna go ahead and actually make the sunglass layer above both of them. So I'm adding a new layer above my group of girl layers. And I'm going to go ahead and use that same navy that we've been using for their close, again to keep the number of total colors as few as possible. I'm also going to turn off this layer of hair. And now let's go ahead and do his and I'm going to just do it on a separate layer. Just so it makes it a little easier. Alright, let's see what it looks like with all of our layers. Turn back on. Pretty cool. Now, if you want to make their glasses appear to be more like sunglasses where there is a little bit of transparency. You can pull up the layer that has the sunglasses. Click, just tap on the N, and it will. Allow you to change the opacity. So let's go down to about 80 percent. And I'm going to do the same for hers as well. And of course you can play around with that. But you'll see now that you see a little bit of the hair coming through or the edge of his face. The next thing we wanna do is to go ahead and add our background. So I can turn off the photo and I can turn off the layer that had the palette on it. And I'm going to put a layer above the palette layer beneath our layer of our couple there. And I'm gonna go ahead and pick a color. So you can choose something from the background, like for instance, this blue, maybe the sky blue. Let's try that one. And I'm just dragging the color dot over. And you can see that's a pretty cool blue. And it makes them look a little cold. So maybe we can try to warm that up with brighter blue. That looks pretty good. Next for a fun photo. You can also try choosing a color that is a complement to or contrast to one of the colors. So we have a lot of blue already going on. And the opposite of blue is orange. So you can see that really warms it up. Now. She's looking no matter what color we have the background to be a little ghostly. So let's go ahead and change her skin tone to match his hand. I'm just going to click on his face to pull up that color. Open up my group of layers, go down to face. Tap on that to get the menu. And when I click on Select, it has changed her face, of which I now notice that her face is below her neck. And remember it's filling in the color because I do have the color fill option on. So now let's go ahead and move her face to be above her neck. And we're going to have to move her lips as well. There we go. While we're at it for changing colors, Let's go ahead and change her arm color. And we're going to need to change her neck and shoulder as well. Now before I change it to match his neck color here, I think that's a little bit too much of a drastic change between the face and the neck. So I'm going to go back to and I'm still on the face color. And I'm just going to tweak that a little bit by clicking and dragging that over, just a smidge. And let's see if that isn't a better. Let's try it on his neck first. Same thing. I'm going to click on neck and then click Select. And that's much better. It's much less of a contrast and looks much more natural. So now that we have that color, we can go back and change the shoulder and her neck. There we go. Looking much more natural now. This is a good time to now that you've filled in the background to check to see if there's any spots that need some touching up so you can see where there's a little bit of a gap between her dress in his pants. So let's choose the pants color. Go down to our pants layer, and just fill that in. Perfect. All right. Let's just take a look at what are a couple of looks like without glasses. That doesn't look too bad either. So you can certainly make that an option for the finished portrait to either include or not include the glasses? If you want to take and change the tone of something just slightly. For instances hair. I'm not thrilled with that color against the orange. And I do love the orange with the blue. We can go ahead and change just that layer. So I'm going to make sure I've selected the hair layer. I'm gonna go to the magic wand tool and click on hue, saturation brightness. And I just want to be changing the layer, the whole layer. If I take the slider on the hue, I can slide that back and forth and give him a whole rainbow of different colors. I don't want to change it that much. Let's maybe try At 52 percent. It starts out at 50. All of them start out at 50. So on the saturation, that's going to change the intensity of it to be more color or less color and go into grays. So we'll give it more color. And then the brightness, of course, will make it much brighter or make it darker. So while he is little blonde or than she is. And we'll play around again. You can go back and forth with playing with different sliders to get just what you want. I think that looks pretty good. Click on the Magic Wand tool again to take it back. And now we have a finished portrait. 8. Minimalist Portraits: Class Project: The class project is to create a minimalist portrait from one of your photos. Remember to find a photo that has good lighting, a clear subject, and doesn't rely on the background to tell the story. If you want to work from a printed photo, I recommend snapping a photo with your phone of the original photograph and then working with a digital copy in Procreate. I can't wait to see what you create.
