Hi, I'm Joanne. I'm a professional illustrator living in Ola. Is Mitch I measuring product designing college and then started to work as a freelancer. I created my own products, created or exhibitions and run workshops. But then I transition to the digital illustration work. Now I teach online, solve my own illustrations and create custom illustrations for clients if you want to enjoy the word of digital illustration to this class is for you. You will practice throwing a subject. Every digital artists should experiment. We did this one. We will draw an interior seeing that can be easily a powerful illustration on its own, but can also be a good background scene for your character illustrations. If you are unsure how to get started with steps to follow or half to bring this unique touch to your interior drawings. Then join me in this practice, you will get an easy start with the interior scene prompts. I proprietary inspire you. Then you will learn how to gather and use your references in your drawings. You will learn techniques to create new objects and types of furniture for your spaces. You will learn how to create a well-balanced composition within easy to follow workflow. Down V, jump into leveling up your composition with textures and patterns. We will play with pattern-making and create two-color pattern brushes in Procreate. Plus you will learn many tips and tricks about Procreate brushes to shine your interior sense. Then we will finalize our illustrations with coloring. The class comes with a custom brush set that you can use in your interior sense. I also included many tissues, including design style cheat sheet as an inspiration. So you will have those references available whenever you need them. Okay, let's get to work. 2. The Class Journey: I'm so happy that you decided to take this class for your class project, I want you to draw an interior scene. I prepare a place for you to have easy and fast start. Here you will find different space ideas and some items to create your composition. You can illustrate a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen, or any kind of space you want to draw. You will also find a cheat sheet that gives you some inspiration about the style and color charts for different design moments that you can apply to your illustration. First, we start with creating our interior scenes story by selecting one group from the first part of the problem is then a few more complimentary elements from the second part. We will also get inspired by the design moments and get an idea of our story for our drawing down, we will collect reference images based on our concept and start sketching. We will put up the whole space with these problems are sketching process. We'll have a few quick steps. First, we will sketch to create our car composition and unexpanded with our complimentary elements. After that, we will learn about one of the most common composition guidelines through roll-off charts and non-repeating and re-frame our composition with the help of this guide. We spent some time here to create our sketch very roughly. Then we will practice drawing different types of furniture and all the elements and accessories create our scene. We will learn a new method here on how to break down your reference images to create sketches unique to you will practice drawing animals emotion with the cheat sheets I prepared for you. We will also practice drawing patterns that you might find a use in some of the elements in your drawing. E.g. you can use them as wallpaper or as a pattern on the carpet, are on the armchair. To speed up your process for this practice and many more in the future, you will learn how to create not just one but two colors stamp brushes for your patterns. I also prepared a custom brush set for a specific use for your interior scenes. You will learn many tricks on using this sector brushes I prepared for you. After you complete your sketch, your last step is to practice your color composition. You can get inspired by the color charts of different design moments, or can work with your own color composition. You will also learn about how to add patterns and texture to your elements to shine your interior drawings even more, you can find the probabilities, cheat sheets, and the brush set and project and resources section below. Throughout the project, I will be sharing many tips and tricks to help you feel confident to draw your spaces. Okay, Let's move to our first step of our project, choosing all the prompts to create our story. 3. Brainstorming Your Scene: Okay, Let's start with our class project. I prepare a prompt list for you to have an easy and fast start to your illustration. You can find it in the project and resources section below. I want you to download it and bring it to your canvas in Procreate. Here on the left, you will see six different group. Each prompt suggests a space to illustrate and for different pieces of furniture to use in your composition. On the right, I also have another list for you that gives you a random furniture and accessories ideas that you might want to use in your illustrations as well. Okay, now I want to show you how this problem works. So to start, I want you to select one prompt from the left. That's going to be the core of your illustration. And then I want you to pick a few random words from the right to combine with that. Chosing diverse randomly from the right side can help you come up with surprising results. I want to illustrate a living room. So maybe I can choose this one here from the left. And my composition should include an armchair, a site table, allow an, a telephone. Again, these elements are just the core of your scene. Now you can pick a few elements randomly from the right side. These are going to be your complimentary elements. I want to choose a carpet, a frame, maybe I shelf, and a plant. You are going to add more elements to your composition and the following steps. But first, you just need to focus on how you can combine your core elements. This will help you not get our event and enjoy the process. One more. Okay, I also have a bonus cheat sheet for you. This cheat sheet explains a few moments with some keywords, references, and an example of color palette for each one. This is just an extra cheat sheet to inspire you. If you want, you can get inspired by this design moments. Why creating your own drawings? E.g. if you created a bohemian, your character on my earlier class, maybe this time you can create a bohemian style, leaving room for your character. Okay, back to my trace ****. I can maximally style is pretty interesting. So I can go for it and create, enjoy all these wallpapers and patterns. Okay, I have all these keywords. Now, it's your turn. Go to download your problem list and pick your prompts and your complimentary elements. I also suggest you to get inspired by one of the design moments. Okay, now, join me in the next video where we are going to collect reference images based on our prompts for our illustration. 4. Gathering Inspiration: Okay, we pick our prompts before sketching our space. I like gathering some reference images to get inspired. I think it's important to sing inspiration for nurturing your imagination. In this lesson, I will show you how to create your mood board to inspire you for your project. Pinterest is one of my favorite apps that I like to use to grab reference images. Pinterest is great because you can always find ideas to spark your inspiration. And you can create boards to categorize all these ideas without much effort. Okay, Let's start collecting our references. Here I am on the Pinterest app on my iPad, but you can also open it in your web browser. First, you need to search for your main topic. I'm going to create an interior scenes, so I write interiors on the search bar. You can easily get inspired by editorial photos. Since I wrote interiors, there are many images of living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens. And at the top left corner, you can see that there are different words. You can narrow your search by clicking on your interests, e.g. if I click on kitchens, I see many images of different kitchens. So based on my prompt, I know that I'm going to illustrate a living room. So I add living room to my search bar. Now I click on the living room references that catch my attention. Okay, I like this image, so I click the red Save button to save it to my Bard. When you click on it, it opens a page that shows your mood boards. You can click on the Plus sign here to create a new board. You can also name your board here. We can also decide if you want a public or a private board. If it's a private board, only you can sit like that. I created my board. Now. I can search for more inspiration and add more images to my barge. I look at my prompts and I need to draw an armchair, a lighting at phone, and a side table. I can search for all these words separately to, you can also look at your design moments. She should, and search for more references from the design moment you are interested in. I add maximalist to my search bar. Okay, here's the small mood board I prepare for this project. I'm just going to take a screenshot and bring the image to procreate. Ok, Now it's your turn. I want you to spend like five to 10 min on Pinterest together your references for the project. Use your prompts as your keywords. Once you have done, take a screenshot to bring it to your canvas in Procreate. Now, join me in the following video where we're going to create our car composition based on our prompts. 5. Core Composition: Okay, Now it's time to create our core composition by using our prompts. It's gonna be a very rough sketch, no need for perfect, very fine lines here. So just enjoy the process. First, I bring my reference images to my commas, okay, it's here. Now I create a new layer and reduce the opacity of my reference layer. Before I start, I want to write my prompts in the corner. Just to keep in mind, I'm going to sketch an arm chair, a side table, a lighting, and a phone for my composition. Now, I'm just going to use gamma utricle shapes such as squares, rectangles, or circles to break down my references. This will help your sketch easily or even recreate new shapes for your furniture sketches. I will start with this arm chair. By the way, I like sketching with colors. I also suggest you to give a chance to colors in sketching. Okay, I'm back to my armchair. Let's break it down into shapes. I definitely see a rectangle here on the staging area, two ellipses on the arms. You can always use curved or straight lines to define your sketch to. And I see triangles for the legs. Remember this is not your final sketch. We're just going to use a metal to understand this armchairs firm. And the good thing is you can use this method for every reference element that you are going to use in your composition. E.g. in this side table, there are definitely an ellipse and a rectangle. The rest is just complimentary lines. Okay, this is how it works. Now, I just continue to do the same with the other elements. Okay, now we get an idea about our elements firm. Now I turn off my reference image and bring my little sketches to the corner. Okay, what I'm gonna do right now is to create a small composition including these four prompts. Since I broke down my other man, it's so much easier for me to sketch without outlining my reference image. I start with a rectangle and then ellipses and the curve, and then the legs. Why I'm drawing, I think about the position of dislikes, like why these shapes starts and ends in my element. You can play with their shapes and sizes and create a new forum for your armchair. Okay, I drove the armchair now, I do the same for the side table. I want to draw my site table in a new layer. I don't really think about the perspective rules here. I don't think you don't necessarily worry about the perspective either. I like mixing things, drawing the part of the chair from the side or front view, or the parts from the top view makes it quite interesting for me. Okay, back to my sketch. I like keeping all my layers and the same group. I just continue to sketch the rest of my elements. See how quickly and easily I can sketch my elements with this method. All down. Now, I want to combine them together. I start with the biggest piece, my armchair sketch. This piece is my center point than I bring the rest one-by-one. At this point, I suggest you to let these two objects interact with each other. E.g. I. Draw the side table in front of the arm chair and I wanted to cover some portion of it. I do the same for the phone. I positioned the phone on the site table, but again, I position it carefully. I tried to avoid tangents. If you want to know what tangents are. Tangents happens when two firms touch or a library class together in an unpleasant way. So try to avoid that in your composition. Okay, let's continue. I want to keep the lighting somewhere between the armchair and cite table. Okay, All done. I want to show you a little trick here. Let's look at this composition in a different way. So in a new layer, I draw some boxes costs during my elements firms and mark their centers. And you see the lighting and the form are almost the same size. I want to change that. I can do the lighting a little bigger. The trick is I try not to draw two main objects on the same size. I also avoid tangents as much as I can. When you look at their borders, Nothing really intersex. Maybe the lighting can change a little bit more, but not a huge problem. Okay, back to my car composition now, I change a few things and I do some cleaning. All done. Now you know better about tough to break down your elements and you are able to sketch them easily. You'll also learn some tricks and how to avoid common mistakes when you work on your composition. Okay, Now it's your turn. I want you to create a small composition using your prompts elements. Use your references to get inspire. Break down your elements to understand their basic forms and sketch down very roughly. This is your first step towards your final composition. Imagine it as a warm-up and sketch loosely. We will work on the element drawings in more detail later. After roughly sketching your car composition for your space, join me in the next lesson. We are going to expand our composition with more elements. 6. Expand Your Composition: Okay, now let's go to need to work on our composition. We have the central fire drawing. Now, let's add more elements to increase the richness of our illustration. We will continue to sketch very roughly. Okay, Let's start. I suggested to keep a copy of your cortical positions, so I duplicate it and turn off the first one. Now I create a new layer to sketch. You can choose a different color if you want. This way you can see your additions to your car composition. Now, I'm going to think of more elements that I can add to my composition. It's good to use reference images, but I think it's also important to sketch from your imagination. So I want you to give it a try. Since we have the base now, it's gonna be a lot easier to add more from your imagination and mix everything together. Okay, we have some prompts from earlier lesson. I hit down here right in the corner, but you can always add more and change things. And also, I'm planning to draw every element as a whole and everything inside of the cameras. And I want you to do the same. Okay. I want to start by adding a carpet. I feel like I can add a carpet right under my arm chair and maybe there's some pattern on it. As you see, I'm not thinking and worrying here how my carpet shape will be. I just continue to use geometric shapes here. Simple rectangles do the work here quite perfectly. Another thing you might notice is that I drove the carpet from the top view. Why my other elements from the front view, I like mixing those things. It's a personal choice, but you might try to experiment as well and see how you like it. Okay, let's continue. I imagined my elements in front of a wall. This will have made to create a deepness in my composition. Okay, It looks great. Now I want to add some plant. Plants. One of the easiest ways to increase the richness of your composition. So if you feel stuck, just add some sense sketches to your drawing. They go with every space and comes with so many different species. So I'll roughly sketch a big plant. Okay, it's done. You can create more compelling compositions by using three main area in your composition. I'm talking about foreground, middle ground, and background here. I want to keep this plant in the foreground. And since it's in the foreground, I resize it and make it bigger. Again, I let my elements interact with each other like in here, my plus sketch covers some portion of the other elements in my drawing. Let's also work on the background. Maybe I can draw a shelf in the background with full of books and some accessories like small sculptures or candles. I tried to bring the diversity here. I think diversity can make your composition stronger. And maybe I can add a window on the other side. I think, I think I sketch that opens up to another space. It's a lot to your composition, like seeing a garden or a CT view through a window, or like a door opens up to another room, that gives a sneak peak to the other room. This will make your composition a lot more interesting and increase its stiffness. So I imagined this room has a view with trees. When I look at my drawing, I see that my plans sketch and trees on the window mixed. So I'm planning to change the bookshelf and Windows position. I'm careful about tangents here, so I keep a part of the window behind the armchair. Remember, tangents are one of the common composition mistakes. Okay, maybe I can draw a cartoon in front of the window, which some patterns on it. Okay, Let's clean up a little. I think it looks great as you see, elements interact each other very well. And there are elements in the foreground, middle ground, and background. I do a last quick check if everything intersex rarely, but I think so far so good. Okay, Let's try one more. This time. I want to work on a space that opens up to another room and gives a little glimpse of this room. So let's start with the Walden. I cut the goal a little behind all of my elements. Okay, now it's time to imagine what's going on in the other room. Maybe it's a hallway. Maybe there is a cap board. I suggested to draw off some part of whatever you draw behind the wall. This is much better for your composition. And just think what you can combine with discount board, maybe a plant on top and a frame behind. It's up to your imagination. We don't work here, calls during perspective completely, but just keeping in mind that a little perspective tricks doesn't hurt anyone. Okay, just roughly sketching other elements that comes to my mind and costs during everything I pay attention in my first sketch. I try it, intersect my elements and avoid tangents at all costs. Okay, all done. You can see here that how we have created two different interior scenes by adding more elements to our composition. Now it's your turn. I wanted to create two different composition using your car composition sketch as your base. Add more elements from your imagination. Let your elements intersects with each other and avoid tangents at all costs, you have from simple geometric shapes to create your sketch elements. We will work on the element drawings in more detail later. We competed to sketches and now choose one and go further with it. So join me in the next lesson where I will show you how the rule of thirds composition guideline works. And then we can rethink our sketch and make some changes. 7. The Rule of Thirds: In this lesson, we will learn a little about the composition guide time, the rule of thirds. The rule of thirds will help us to reach well-balanced and compelling compositions. For the rule of thirds, you need to divide your Canvas evenly into thirds. So I want you to divide your canvas into three equal horizontal parts and three vertical equal parts. For this, you can get help from procreate drawing guide. So I go action, a non-color ones and toggle on drawing guide. You can click Edit Drawing Guide, and play with the grid size at the bottom. In this square, Cohn was, you should aim for six squares for each side to divide your Commonwealth into thirds. If your canvas size is this, you should aim 342 pixels. Now I draw my lines through these guiding lines. If I hold my pencil on the canvas, it straightens the lines and I put one finger on the screen. Okay, now I have a perfect line. I just clicked and dragged arrest. Okay, now I have my drawing guide. I turn off the Drawing Guide and lowered opacity of my composition guideline. Now I create a new layer on top and I'm ready to draw. The trick in the rule of thirds is to position the important elements along these lines or at the intersection points. Placing focal points at these intersections will create a great sense of balance and harmony. In your illustration, you will make it more engaging to the eye. You just need to play with the size of your elements and practice positioning your content in balance with the help of the roll-off starts. If you want to learn more and practice more about the rule of thirds, check out my earlier class about composition. Now create your rule of thirds composition guideline and join me in the next lesson, where we will re-frame our drawing to reach a more balanced and started driving composition. 8. Reframe Your Composition: Okay, we sketch two different scene. Learn how to work with the rule of thirds. And now I want you to think about your framing one more time. It can be a lot more exciting for your composition to lose some part of your elements out of your frame. So we are going to create a few square boxes and recreate our composition inside of these frames. Okay, this is what we have done so far. I want you to pick one of them. Now, bring your composition guideline that you created in the earlier lesson and lowered opacity. Then draw a square in the new layer. I use the ages of my commonwealth as my reference. Now, I bring it to the corner and reorient my guideline. Okay, so what we're going to do right now is to capturing a new scene from our growing, like taking a nice shot of Iran and the square will be the frame of your photo, e.g. if I make my drawing bigger and move around the frame, I can capture new scenes by losing some parts of the elements on the outside of the square, you can reach to a more powerful composition with this method or you can change the focus of your drawing. Okay, so let's start. I have my sketch and my frame next to each other. I will start with drawing my arm chair. This one is one of my main elements, so I position it at the intersection point. I want to position the side table at the other intersect. I'm more careful about my proportions here. You can use a transformation tool here. You don't need to redraw it. For my first illustration. I don't plan a major change just for their proportions and positioning using my guideline, e.g. I want to keep delighting in one of the targets, but also I'm being careful about its position with armchair and side table. I tried to keep all the elements centers at the different points and avoid intersections. I continue to add elements to my drawing. As you see, I positioned the phone at one of the lines. I'm using the guideline as much as I can and I plan to add more details. E.g. a. Blanket on the arm chair feels like a good idea. Again, using my guideline, I want to keep the wall mainly in this Foursquare's. Okay, it's slowly coming together. Maybe I can add more accessories on the table. Maybe some books and a small plant who are working on all these little accessories can add a lot to our interiors in drawing. So I suggested to think about all these small accessories that you can add to your drawing. I want to work on the background now. I think I want to draw up the cardboard on the other side feels like it will be too crowded in its old spot. It should be smaller than the armchair. Maybe I can draw a plant on top of it. I just continue with the carpet. Is you see, I leave some parts of the elements of my frame. I still play with the proportions as I continue to draw. Drawing all the elements in different layers comes really handy at this point. So I strongly recommend it. I think the last elements and more accessories as much as I can. Okay. It's mainly done. Let's clean up a little. Okay, It looks great, but to make your scene more alive, I suggest you to add an animal to our drawing. But in a Martian, e.g. maybe a cat slipping on the carpet are scratching the armchair. Don't forget, I prepare a cheat sheet for you with cats emotion. You can get a help from it. I talk more about this in the upcoming lesson about how to draw animals in motion. Maybe pause here and check this lesson out. For this scene, maybe I can draw a cat hiding behind a wall and checking the room. Curiously. Our first scene is done. Let's try another one. For the second scene, I plan to shift my focus to the side table. So probably the armchair are dressed will be seeing less and my drawing. So I started with drawing the arm chair and I position it in the corner. And this way we can see the side table more. So I position it in the left two charts and cite table mainly in the bottom charts. The phone at the intersect. I leave the right towards, for the other room view. I will not change some things. Maybe I can draw more lamps this time. I want to keep domain in the top charts. As you see, I've create diversity in their position. This small change will have my composition. I can draw plants in the bag is you see, I don't try to escape with the plan in this area. I imagined it as it grows behind the wall and out of the frame. I plan as seen for this sketch as well. I think the cat behind the phone can fit quite well for this drawing. I roughly imagine all the patterns and add more elements to my drawing. Okay, it's done. As you see, my focus shifted a lot. The armchair is just the background element. Now, on the other hand, the side table, phone and cat as the focus of the drawing. Okay, now let's change things even more and see how far we can go. This time. I want the site table and the font to be my focus. I drove a site soluble along my bottom line. I want everything going on, on top of the table to be my focus. I draw the phone, maybe a small plant, and pencils, and an old book. These are positioning in this six squares. I want to create a background mainly in the top third, maybe we see another room through the window here, I will draw the same elements on the bag, such as armchair plans frames, but much smaller this time since they are on the back. And I draw the frame and evolve. Okay, I can see that I can work more on positioning and skills, but I don't very much about this now. These are my very fast exercises. Okay, we've created three different scenes with three different focus on each one. Now it's your turn. I want you to retain your scene and practice re-framing your composition. Shift your focus in every tribe create at these two are tray rough sketches with the hub of the rule of thirds. I wanted to choose one of your drawings and join me in the next lesson where we are going to work on the drawing elements. 9. Drawing Elements: Okay, We have a clear idea of how our sketch looks like. But to make it a step forward, I will show you how to make new things out of your reference images. With these new skills you can work on outlining our composition. This is what we are going to do. We will use our reference images as a start. They are very helpful, but you can do a lot more than just copying the reference images. You can add up, play with the proportions and reflect your style on your drawings. Okay, let's start simple. I have a reference image of a chair here on my com. Once again, I suggest you to use reference images as a start, but it's really important that you create a sketch that is more than this reference image. This example is especially half-full to be easy on yourself if you are intimidated by drawing elements in perspective. Okay, Let's start. I first lowered opacity of my reference image and create a new layer on top. Your image can look complicated to draw when you cause there are lots of details or the perspective on the image. But the good thing is you can cancel or change things as you want. It's your sketch, it's your style. I will sketch on top of my reference image. I want to start withdrawing this thing, diarrhea in the original, it's square or a rectangle, but I want to change it and make it an ellipse. Okay, now, let's continue with the legs. I'm mostly tracing over my reference here for the first liked, maybe a little ticker. And for the rest, I want to play with the reality and add my style on it. The thing I like about illustration is that it doesn't have to be realistic. So I want to draw all the legs at the same high, kinda distort my chair. And maybe three legs is enough not-for to keep it more simple. I want to do the same for the connection part in the middle. It looks complicated as it is now. So I think one straight line in the middle will be fine. The same approach goes for the top as well. I ignore the perspective and just draw one rectangle for the back. And I think I can minimize the number of the wooden sticks on the back. Okay, Let's move our sketch to the side to see how it looks. I think it looks great. Maybe I can add some details like some texture on the sting, diarrhea or different colors finishes on the legs. As you see, even though we sketch on top of our reference image, we were successful to reflect our style on it. Okay, let's get more creative now as our second practice, we will create a few furnitures, although one reference image, I have my reference image here. Let's see what we can do. The first thing we're gonna do to break down our image, which shapes such as triangles, rectangles are ellipses. Now we're going to use this as our structure and play with them to come up with different ideas and to create more balance items. Playing with shapes endlessly what furniture designers do in their sketching process to, you can use this method in anything from drawing, from furnitures to even drawing animals or people. Okay, Let's start. I lowered opacity and create a new layer on top. Okay, there's a rectangle on the back, another one here, and some ellipses on the arms. So just try to find all these shapes on your image. Okay, if you broke down our reference image, now, I bring my sketch to the side and completed if there's a missing part. Okay, I don't need my reference image anymore, so I turned it off and bring my sketch to the corner. Then I create a new layer to sketch. Okay, now we're going to apply with our shapes. We can make them bigger or smaller. We can play with the curves, make them curvier or flutter. It's easier to play now since you know the structure you want to create, experiment as many as possible, you will be surprised with the idea of how many new items you can create. Okay, as I start, I want to replace the rectangle for the buck with that circle. Now I just draw a rectangle for the sitting area. Two ellipses on the side, but I want to change the angle, make it much wider. Some triangles for the legs and maybe circles as details. So as you see, it will make a few changes, be already created a different furniture. Okay, Let's try one more. This time. I want to make a bigger armchair, maybe at so far. So I started with extending my rectangle. You can even think of using different shapes, such as a heart shape. There is no boundary here, so enjoy your creativity too. We can also add a pattern on your furniture. I think textures or patterns also help you come up with exciting results. Okay, it's done. Since this is supersymmetric element, I suggest you to get a little help from Procreate features, the editing guide. First, I lowered opacity of my sketch layer and create a new layer on top. Then I go action than Canvas and turn on drawing guide on the settings at the bottom, I choose symmetric. By moving the line here, you can decide where your center is going to be. At the top, you can select the color of your guide. Okay, All set. Now, I can start sketching. I choose another color to sketch is you see now I can just draw one line on one side and the other one appears automatically. The thing you need to be careful here is that every new layer you create needs to be set again. So I click on the layer and a sidebar appears, and I took on the drawing assist. Now my new layer is also set. You can do the same if you want to disable the Drawing Assist, tap on that layer and turn off the Drawing Assist easily. And just like that, we created a different furniture by using the structure of our reference image, you can use the same method for every element in your sketch and surprise yourself with your creativity. Okay, now I want to refine my sketch, keeping this in mind. Okay, All done is you see the pattern on the wall and the armchair is still missing. And I can add some textures on the floor or the carpet. Don't worry about these now, we will come to that next. Now it's your turn, drove new elements out of your reference images, figure out the foundation of your reference elements and play with the proportions and shapes and new combinations to create yours than applying our sketch with all the new elements, skip the patterns. Now join me in the next video where I'm going to help you with drawing animals to get a little more excitement to your illustration. 10. Animals in Motion: Okay, I think if you drove an interior illustration, adding an animal interior drawing can add spice to your drawing. It can be a dog, a cat, or a parrot. It's totally up to your imagination. But what's better is to draw in, move. Like a cat is looking behind the wall, are slipping on a couch or scratching the college can be a nice touch for your drawing and all these breaking down the elements method can be used in animals as well. So if you're having trouble drawing animals, I suggest you to check out my earlier class and hit the drawing dogs lesson. I showed you how to use this technique. Why drawing dogs? I also prepared a cheat sheet for you to download all the cats and move. Don't hesitate to check it out and get a little help from it. It's in the Project and Resources folder. You can always head over to Pinterest to search for your reference images. Now go ahead and draw some animals in more. Practice with my cheat sheet and add your animal to your drawing. Now, join me in the next video where I'm going to show you how to download the brush set I prepared for you and many tricks, how to use them in your illustration. 11. How to Use Brushes?: In this lesson, I will show you how to import your brush set to your Procreate and some tips on how to use them. Okay, Let's start. You can download the brush set in the Project and Resources folder. So to be able to use your new brushes in Procreate, you just need to download the brush folder and save it to your iPad. And then open the Bryce said, and then tap on the plus sign at the top of the brush library and then click Import and search for the brush file. The brush file will appear in your imported folder. Okay, these are the five different brushes I prepare for you to use in your interior scenes. Okay? Now that you have your brushes, I want you to give you some information about them and show you a few tricks that can be useful while you use them for your drawing. The first thing you need to know is the brushes I prepared for you, our continuous brushes. That means they don't overlap by your drove. So you can just stop and then continue to draw over your left. This is a great feature for pattern consistency. The second thing we're going to talk about is the brush size. If your pattern is too big or too small for your drawing, don't worry, you can change its size easily. To do that, you need to go to your brushes, then click on that brush, tap Grain and I change the scale on the board right next to it. You can test how it looks. Then you can just click down and start drawing. Another thing you need to know is that the brushes are directional. So if you want to change the direction, you can just turn your account once and you will have another look at your pattern. It's a very easy trick, but it's very helpful. There is actually another way to change your pattern direction. Tap on your brush to go your brush settings than tap Grain and click Edit. Then use your fingers to change its direction than just clicked down. Okay, The last one is a golden thread. You can create new brushes by mixing two or just one brush by playing with its direction sees your brushes are consistent brushes. To create new effects with the same brush, you need to go back to your brushes than tap on your brush, than on the left, tap on grain, and choose moving brush. Now you are able to mix them. Let's try. Now. It's up to your imagination. Or you can easily use two different brushes by mixing them. Just started with one and then try the second one on top of it. And you just issue a new pattern. Now that you know some tricks about these brushes, Let's have a look at how to apply your brushes to your drawing. You can either use Alpha Lock or clipping mask option. Why the COVID mask allows you to be more flexible. The Alpha Lock is crucial when you have to work with a small number of layers. So just create a shape in a new layer. For Alpha Lock, tap on that layer and choose Alpha Lock. You can draw freely and your pattern will still stay inside of your shape. For clipping mask, create a new layer on top than tap on that layer and choose clipping mask. Then you campaign however you like and your pattern will apply to your shape. Now go to your project and Resources folder and download your brushes, then add them to your Procreate. Now, join me in the next lesson where I will show you how to create two-color pattern brushes to use in your drawing. Then we will use all these new brushes and work on our final sketch. 12. Two-Coloured Stamp Brushes: Drawing a repeating pattern in your illustration can take a lot of time. But if you create your custom brush, the process is much quicker and less painful. So in this lesson, we are going to create our two-color custom brushes, and you will be able to use these brushes in your illustration. Brush making can be complicated easily, but with my easy to apply step-by-step process, you don't need to worry. Once you've created your brush, you can use it as a pattern for your wallpaper or for your furniture's. And it speeds up your process a lot. So very important skill. And when you learn this skill, you will see that it comes handy and you can use it all the time. Okay, Let's start. I look at my sketch and there is a pattern on the wall and on the arm chair. So I want to create brushes for these areas. See spot patterns, interacts with each other. I want to think of something that can go well together. Maybe a bird pattern as a wallpaper and flowers for the chair. You can go back to Pinterest and find new references for your pattern. I already collected to reference images from the Pinterest. Here's the first one. I want you to start with sketching your pattern and it's totally okay to sketch on top of your reference image. Just lowered opacity and make sure that you work in a new layer on top of it, I want my pattern to have some texture like rest of my drawings, so I choose something like chalk brush. This is important for the brush making. You need to draw in black color. I suggest you to sketch your element as much as simple. You can imagine it like sketching a sweat for this part. And I like working with geometrical forms, so this helps me to keep my sketch simple. Okay, the frame is done. Now. I'm going to color it all black. I don't suggest color dropping if you want some texture in your part-time. So I just quickly paintings side. Okay, first layer is done. This is important here. I want you to imagine your pattern as two layers and draw it as two layers as well. Two layers are going to be in different colors, so it's a good chance to create a more interesting pattern. Okay, Let's try for the second layer. I create a new layer. The brush layer should be in black, but for now I choose another color to our grid. I think I can do color shadows on the body and the wings. Okay, It looks great. Now I recolor it in black. Okay, All done. Now, we have two layers to create our brush. To be able to create two colors, stamp brush, we are going to create two different brushes and then combine them together. Okay, Let's start with the first one. Okay, I am on my canvas now. Three finger on the screen, slide down and then choose Copy old. Now go to your brush library. Then tap on the plus icon on top right than on the left, tip shape than tap on edit. And now tap on import and click Paste than two fingers on the cow was this will invert the colors. Why do I read is your pattern? If you want to see the bird as a pattern, the virtual be white and also shall be be like, Okay, click down. Your first pattern brush is here now you can do more. Your brush on the right board is quite small to check, so still it's quite not finished. There are a few more little settings in here that venue to Tyvek and alter. So let's begin with naming our brush. I tap on About this brush on the left sidebar. Then I changed the name on top. As you see now, I have a brush name bird one. Now I go back to my brush settings. This time I go to Properties section. And now let's play with brush behavior. If you select minimum and maximum size over, you can see that birds are becoming bigger, but there are still way too close to each other. To fix that. I go to Stroke Path section this time and I play with spacing. You can see that all the birds are separating from each other and become much more visible. I want to keep that around 70 or 80 per cent, not so close to each other. Next, I'm going to Apple Pencil. I do want to change the transparency because my birds are not so visible at the moment. I turned up with C2 now, and I also want to adjust the tilt, turn it all the way down. The next thing I want to check is rendering. I want to check the blending. I want the flow is 100%, okay, that's done two. And the last thing I want to check is the brush size. Again, I tap on the properties and go to Brush behavior and play with it to see how I like. It looks great. Let's go ahead and hit Done. And you can see your brush here. I want to see how it looks. So I create a new layer to test it. Okay, I think it looks great. Now let's create our second brush. I'm on my second layer. Now I need to copy this image. And again to copy three-finger on the screen, slide down and then copy all. Now go to your brush library. Tap on the brush you just created than slight lift and tap Duplicate. Now you just copied your brush. All the adjustments we made is already on this brush now, so our work is much easier. Now I'll tap on your second brush, go to shape. We are going to change the patterns. So click, edit, and then in part, and then paste your image, It's already inverted. The only change we have to make is in color dynamics. So go to Color dynamics and change all the secondary colors are true max, this will help us to have a secondary color in our pattern brush. Now, I tip about this brush on the bottom and name my brush. Let's go ahead and hit Done. Okay, now we have two separate brushes. Now we need to combine them to make one working brush. Combine, I am on my brushes. Your second brush is already selected. Slide right is brush. And select the second one. Now you selected both brushes. Now type coal mine, if it's done correctly, it should work perfectly. Okay, Let's give it a try. I select my brush. Now I go to color charts. At the top, you see there are two color options. You can select a color for each brushes here. I choose two different color and wallah, it looks perfect as you see. It didn't take me long at all to create my own custom to color brush. Now I can just apply it to my drawing. Before I go further, I want to create another brush very quickly, just following the same steps. Since I already have the settings from my first brush, It's so much easier to create the second one. Now, what I need to do right now is just to copy my bird brush that I just created. Now I go to my brush settings. I want to change the name of my brush to avoid any confusion. So I tapped about this brush at the bottom of the sidebar and name my new brush at the top. I already have two layers of drawing for my flower pattern. I just select one of them to copy. Three fingers on the cameras slide down and I select Copy all. Then I go to brush settings of my new brush. I select the second brush from my Grouped brush, since both our domain part of the pattern, then I tap on the shape than edit and paste my new pattern here. Just like that, I created my first brush. Now I'm gonna do the same for the second one. I go back to my layers, select the second layer of my pattern, three fingers on the commonwealth slide down and select copy. All, go back to brush library. Select the detail brush this time, go into shapes, select, Edit and Paste the pattern. All done. What I did was to change the images with my new ones. Okay, Let's test it. I think it looks great. Now I can use these pattern brushes on my illustration and finalize my drawing. Now it's your turn. I want you to create at least one to color brush, SketchUp pattern with two layers, and create your brush with the following steps. Use your new brushes in your sketch and finalize your sketching process. Don't worry about the color choice of your brush right now. Now, join me in the following video where I will clean up and finalize my sketch and apply my pattern to my sketch. 13. All about Colouring: Now that you have your refined sketch, you can start working on the farm part, which is colored. In this lesson, we are going to finalize our sketch by coloring. And I think some texture for coloring you can get inspired by the reference photos. You can just look at the colors you like and see how they are combined. Or some websites offer you a different color combinations. Adopt color is one of them. You can even learn which color palettes are trending at the moment. And you can easily apply this color combinations to your color palettes in Procreate. Okay, Let's start. The first thing I do when I want to color a new illustration is to create a color thumbnails in a small size and every quick one. So I want my cow was, I think any brush here doesn't really matter. Then I copy my sketch layer and make it small. Dan, I just create a new layer under my sketch layer. My first step here is that always start with your background color, then continue adding colors to our biggest pieces very roughly and very quick. So for my drawing, I plan to go with soft and light colors on the background. A soft blue, a soft gray or yellow, are generally my go-to colors for backgrounds. The woolen armchair are some of the biggest pieces of my drawing, and I want them to be very colorful and coherent with each other. I might go for a soft orange for the wall and green for the armchair. Or dual pattern. I can try to answer tone, since there are already many colors going on, maybe a vivid orange and maybe another orange close to the right as well. The carpet is another big piece in my drawing. I can try a contrasting color for the wall, which is blue. Blue might go well with green as well, maybe together with a darker blue and round. This is my second big tip here, always use a limited number of color pallets. You can use different shapes to Who's of your chosen colors. That will help you to have a control over your color combination. It can also be a good idea to keep a color palette in the corner of your commas, just like here, I just continued to splash colors on my drawing very quickly without overthinking. And I always try to use one color in more than one spot. And also don't forget, this is just a sketch of your colors. You can change all the colors as you go. I always add the black latest. Black is a very strong color and difficult to work with. So instead of using black, I suggest using a darker gray, close to black, or dark hues from your color palette. I think in this way it looks so much better. Okay, All done. I want to turn off my sketch layer to see how it looks without the distraction of black layers. Looks great. Just adding the last details now. Okay, one last tip before you go to finalize your sketch, senior sketch in black and white can give you a new perspective on your color choices, how they combine to each other. So to see your thumbnail in black and white, I want you to create a new layer in black on top of your sketch. Then tap on that layer and choose saturation or color. Now we can check if every important element pops up, it went black and white. If it's not, I suggest you play with the tones and check again. Okay, this thumbnail will do the work as a start of my coloring process. You can keep it in the corner or you can just turn off the layer and go back at it when you need it. Okay, our color thumbnails is ready. Now, let's bring our sketch back to the Commonwealth and start coloring our drawing. My sketches here. Why I'm coloring? I like using a grainy, sharper brush on the outlines, a more grainy texture brush on the side. I have a few brushes that I use in my coloring process. I also made them available for you. You can find them in the project and resources section below, just all around it and add them to your brush library. I'm in a new layer. First with my outline brush. I outline my element and then drag and drop my color inside of it. I like using a two color texture effect. Like if the wall is red, I like having an underneath layer in orange. So I first create my bottom color, just like I did here. And then I go to my layers, tap on my layer, choose Alpha Lock. Now I can use my texture brush to color it. Since the Alpha Lock is on, it's easier and faster to color without outlining. I like working on different layers for coloring each element. That gives me a better control and allows me to change things quickly and easily if it's needed, I quickly continue coloring my elements. Okay, The wall is ready. Now, let's use our stamp brush to add our pattern to the goal. I create a new layer on top of my role layer, tap on my new layer, and this time choose clipping mask. Now I go to my brushes and choose my bert stamp brush. Here's the good part. My brush has two colors, so I need to choose two different colors. Now, you can click between these two color charts here and select your color for each. And now I go back to my commonwealths and add my pattern is, you see, it's so easy to add down with this brush. Okay, It looks great. Now I continue to color duress. Now I can use my second stamp brush the flower brush on the arm chair. I use the clipping mask feature again. Then I choose two different colors for my brush. I want to talk about an important trick here, the Bryce size of two colors stamp brushes. If you want to change the brush size, It's important to make sure that you change each of these combined brush sizes in the same number. So I type on my brush, choose my first brush than typical forties and on the maximum size, instead of sliding over the bar, I want you to type on the number and write your number here than I do the same with the second brush. Okay, now I add my flowers to the chair using Clipping Mask feature here again. And as I mentioned in the earlier section, to change the direction of your stamp brush, you just need to rotate your canvas. We finished our drawing. I think it looks pretty good. Now it's your turn. Go ahead and finish adding color and texture to your illustration. First, create a quick color thumbnail, then move on to the coloring phase. Get help from the Alpha Lock, clipping mask features and your stamp brushes. Now join me in the next video where I will share my final thoughts about this class. 14.
