1. IColorama Introduction: Never heard of Eichler armor. Well, I believe it's the most powerful tool of Procreate or digital artists can have in their arsenal. He may be thinking, how can it help you as an artist? I color armor as a myriad of textures, special effects, brushes, and transformational tools that can lift any image into an exceptional piece of art. It can help you change one picture into many variations, which is so useful for print on-demand sites to increase your sales. Would you like to transform your art in ways you've never dreamt of. Eye color. Alma gives you so many options and ideas. Your creative juices will flow. You won't be disappointed but inspired. So why not try out my first course on Eichler armor? I'm Christine share born, a British ex-pat, artists and author living on the Beautiful Gold Coast in Australia. Hit the Follow button at the top so you don't miss out on future courses. Then check out my teacher profile to discover more about me. Intrigued. Then let's go. 2. Lesson One iColorama Overview: Welcome to Lesson one, eye color armor overview. Eichler armor is a very powerful program. Eye color armor literally has sizes of brushes and effects and all sorts of things you can do to change your images. It would take literally several hours to show you every part of eye color armor. So what I intend to do is to show you an overview and gradually build on the different effects you can have during each lesson. And I will do several courses to eventually cover every aspects of eye color armor. So now we'll go to the app store to download Eichler armor. You'll be pleased to know that it's a one-off cost of around about $10. So let's go to the App Store. Type in the search engine, eye color armor. And this is what it looks like. Download the one on the left, open up Eichler armor. And you will see a menu at the top. On the top left-hand corner. You'll see a picture symbol. Press this and tap image from library. Choose an image from your camera roll. This particular image is of a New Zealand field that I painted last year. Tap on tone. And you'll see impulse. Impulse is always the image from your library, the original image that you've brought in. Now, let's tap on the sub-menu on enhance. You'll see the picture change. Now if you tap on the window in the bottom right-hand corner, you can see all sorts of different ways you can enhance this picture. Simply tap on each one and see which one you like. And you can change the contrast by the slider at the bottom. Change the Gamma, change the opacity. All of the ones along this particular menu work in a very similar way. So now we'll press Postel. You see again the tone has changed. Press on the window in the bottom right-hand corner. And you can choose different types of pasta. And again, using the sliders at the bottom, you can change the contrast, the gamma or the opacity. I will just go along that menu to see the different types of effects you can get. So we've got semi neon, tint, lo amo, duotone, sepia, black and white. Black and white and one color. Match. Daylight, muted. There's different themes like adventure, seashore, vacation, sunsets, extra, orange, paradise, pop, interior, dark, vibrant film, moody, fantasy, old, and so on. And again, remember that you can always go down to the bottom right-hand side and tap the window, which will give you many variations. In this case on cinematic. Remember the sliders that you can adjust the contrast, the Gamma and the opacity. So that's an overview of tone. Now we'll move on to the preset. Before we look at the preset menu, I would like to go over some essential controls. In the top left-hand corner. Again, tap on the picture icon and import your image from the library. Now, choose texture on the top menu, and then paper. The window at the bottom right-hand corner. You can choose different paper effects. You can increase them, change the size. And the opacity. In the top right-hand corner you will see a square. If you hold this time. It shows the before and after. So without the texture, with the texture. When you're happy with the texture. The next control, the top right-hand corner, is a circle with a tick. This saves your adjustments. Now go to the top left-hand corner with the half circle arrow. Press fast. You will see the history. So you have with us the texture. With the texture, and any other adjustments that you've made. You happy with your finished image. Go to the top right-hand corner, press the up arrow, and save to your camera roll. Those are the main controls for importing and exporting your image. Now, let's move on to presets. The first one is a gradient. And there's different gradients you can choose, and then you can change the screen mode. Multiply overlay. Screen. Lineal is another one that changes the colors across the picture. So have a look at border. You can make some interesting borders for your picture. We've got different grids. Again, different colors, which color? Different areas of the picture. And I think that's all we're going to look at for the time being, for the presets. Let's move on to style. Style is a menu that you'll use quite often. Let's see what some of these do. Sketch. This is really handy if you want to use a photograph and turn it into a sketch to take into procreate and use it there. Simplify. Different painterly style. Edges is another really good one to make a sketch of your photograph. He's a plan one. Mosaic. It makes your photograph or image look like window. Humming a stained glass window. Quite cool. Now let's move on to effects. Blend will go into this one later. It's where you blend two pictures together. Glow gives you different glowing effects. Sharpen. Raise. This can make your photograph look like an oil painting. Now we'll move on to adjust. This changes different colors, vibrant shadows. You can adjust all the different parts of your image. Now we're going to look at the brush menu. This really needs special tutorials for each one. So I'm just going to quickly go through some tools here. Starting with rebound. Say that you get a clear canvas. But if you start painting is uncovers the image underneath. You can press on brush and change your brush style. If you press on clean and okay, it takes it away. So we look at artists which works in a similar way. This is a quite different brush. I've got hair and you can see you can get quite different effects with that. Again, clean. Okay. Stamps using different brushes to stamping effects on there. Again, this needs a tutorial on its own. So how clean that image will look at abstracts, which has got presets, swirls, circles, displays. Again, this needs a separate tutorial. So we'll clean that off and go on to form. Now we're looking at form. You can make some interesting pictures from using things like mirror. Quite good for pattern-making. Class. Waves, tiles, the quiet good to make a single image into a pattern. And now we'll move on to texture. We already looked at the paper textures. There's loads of these, as you can see. Bokeh, which gives you different bokeh lights effects. Not for this image, of course, birth, quite good for some other images. Smoke, lightning. We can move the lightning round. You want to make a picture more interesting by adding lightening. Fireworks. Rain, bubbles, sparkles. I use this one quite a lot. Flask patterns. You can even make your image look like metal. Well, there we are. Just a short overview. And you can have fun yourself playing about with the different textures. So let's move on to lesson two. 3. Lesson Two Having Fun with the Toon Tool: Hi everyone. Welcome to lesson. To start with, we're going to have some fun with the tune effect. In a few simple steps. We're going to turn this photo image into this styling artwork of a gorgeous little girl. Looks good, right? You can either use my original photo, which you'll find in the resources section, or choose your own. Why not take a moment to browse your library and find a cute photo of your child, grandchild, or maybe a favorite niece or nephew. He's another example. I think you'll enjoy this class. So let's get started. First of all, open up the Procreate app. Click on the plus sign on the top right-hand corner and choose the canvas size. In this case, I've chosen a 16 by 20 inches in 300 dpi. Tap on the wrench icon and choose Add. Then photo. Import your chosen image. Resize your image using the blue markers or simply tap Fill page. Adjusts the photo until you are happy with the placement. Now, back to the wrench tool to share. Save the photo to your camera. Roll. Now, open up the Eichler armor app. Tap the photo icon in the upper left-hand corner. Then tap image from library and import your adjusted photo. Look along the top menu and tap on style a sudden and you will open up, look for and tap the name to know the magic happens. Immediately. The picture will change into the tune effects. Don't worry if the image changes size. You can adjust this later on. Save the image by tapping on the arrow in the top right-hand corner and press Save. This will save the adjusted image into your camera, roll. Open up, procreate, and choose the same canvas sizes before, which was 16 by 20. Import the tune image and resize to fit the canvas. Once more. There. Look carefully for any changes that need to be made. In this case, we can see part of the hair and the background is missing. So let's fill in these areas. Tap on the brush icon and choose the soft air brush, which comes with the Procreate brush menu. Then go to the Transform tool. Move right down to the button and choose clone. You see a circle appear. Moves a circle with your finger to the part you want to copy or clone to the missing parts. Move your brush carefully. And you will see that it will clone the same background. I'll keep moving the circle. So it's on the right part of the background. I want to recreate move your apple pen in the same direction so that the texture matches. I keep moving the circle. So it stays on the right's color that I want to copy. Just my brush down a little bit to get into the smaller areas. Now I can see also over on the right-hand side we've got the black area. Which I think would look better in the purple color. So leaving the circle on the purple side, I gently fill in the black to match. Now, let's move our attention to the hair. There is a little bit of purple that needs going at the top there. Then we move the circle onto the hair and copy a little bit more of the hair to fill in that space. There. C will slow down the side here. We need a little bit more hair. Try to match up the colors so they though into one another. And look like they're meant to be. Let's have a look at the picture again. We can see in the bottom left-hand corner that we need to put some more purple background. So I moved to circle back onto the purple part. And gently cloning. Make the brush a little bit bigger. There. Now, looking very carefully at the picture, I see there is in the bottom left-hand corner a little white line. I think we'll just get rid of that. Okay, I'm happy with the part that we've cloned. I'm going to click off the transform tool. Now, looking at the picture, I can see that the eyes of the little girls would benefit from some highlights. So go into the layer and plus sign. A new layer. Change the brush to studio pen or something similar. On the color wheel. Double-tap the ad side to make it a pure white. Now, we going to put some highlights in there that's better. I'm going to make the brush smaller and just put a little highlight. Not happy those, I'll try them. That looks patch brighter. That's all finished. So now we'll save the Photo. Share JPEG. Save Image. Open up Eichler armor. Tuck the image in the top left-hand corner, and choose image from library. Next, we're going to give the image some interests by adding a texture. Look along the top menu and choose texture. Look along the sub menu and choose paper. You'll notice in the bottom right-hand corner a window, press the window. And that will open up a sudden menu with different paper textures. As you tap each one, you can see the texture change on the image. Choose the one you like. I think this first one looks quite good. And now looking along the top menu, we're on texture, leave it on texture. And on the second menu, go along to lyse bokeh. Again, tap on the little window and you can see different types of Bokeh that you could put it on there. I don't think this is right for this image. So I'm going to go along the menu and look for Sparkles. Tap on the window and you see different kinds of Spark or you can add, I think this one is perfect. The orientation is wrong, so I'm going to slide the rotation around, make it portrays. Spread the sparkles with my fingers to cover the image. Now you can see the sparkles or all over the image. And we really want to clear the face. So on the left-hand side, tap the circle mask. And then the menu, this appears. Tap the cross. And that gives you a circle. You can move this circle around and you can expand it. Also in the bottom menu you'll see blur radius. You can raise that slightly so it blurs out in a softer fashion. There. I think that's about right. At this point, we're going to tap the tick on the upper right-hand corner. To save a selection. At this point, I want to show you on the top left-hand corner a half circle, which is the history circle. So we have the original image and the finished image. We have the finished image we're going to export to the camera roll. So tap on the top right-hand corner and press Save, and that will go straight to your camera. Roll. Open up, Procreate again. Select your Canvas 16 by 20. In port, you're finished image and press Fit to Canvas. There. Now at this point, we could make some other changes. So let's just try a few hours. Tap on the layer button, you swipe the layer one to the left and duplicate this duplicated version. We're going to press the N. And we're going to try the different screens and see if any of them make the picture better. You can, of course, choose any type of screen that you like. But for me, I think the one called screen is quite good. The license that image, but the opacity is too great. So I'm going to slide the opacity down to about 40 per cent. There. I'm happy with that. I hope you've enjoyed this class and have an amazing finished artwork. I would love to see your final pictures and encourage you to upload them to the class projects. See you in the next lesson. 4. Lesson Three Blend Mode: Lesson three. In this class we are going to use the blend mode to blend two pictures together. So let's get started. I've provided the two images for you, but I encourage you to experiment with your own. Let's go import the first image. This portrait is one I painted last year. And I want to bring more interest to it. Find effects in the top menu. And then tap blend in the sub menu. In the bottom right-hand corner, tap the picture icon and choose the second picture. This case, a bouquet of flowers. Moves per k around with your fingers to better position. And then slide the rotation slider to make it in the right direction. There. That's looking good. Now, tap on the adjustments circle to save. That's the circle with the tick in the upper right-hand corner. Remember, this will save the image to your history. Now, let's add some texture. Choose texture from the main menu. And the sub-menu pressed paper. And then the window in the bottom right-hand corner. As before, you can choose different textures to find one that you like. When you're happy with the texture. Tap the adjustments to save. Just as a reminder, go to the history icon. Now you will see your original image. The image with the bulky and the image with the bot K and the texture. At any time you can go here and backtrack by tapping of previous image. Now, let's change the mood of the portrait. Tap tone in the top menu. And then we'll just explore some different effects. Let's try adventure. Tap the window icon and you can change the colors and the tone to an adventure tone. In this case. Let's try pop. That's really Bryce. Maybe not for this one. Vibrant. You can play around for a long time actually, with all the different moods that you can get. Fashion. Let's try beauty. That's quite nice. There are literally thousands of variations, so take your time to explore the options. Remember the button on the top right-hand corner that you can press to see the previous image and the new image. So you can see the adjustments you make. Let's try party. That's pretty bright. Again, a reminder that you can use the sliders to change the contrast. The Gamma and the opacity. You'll see a bar named normal At the bottom right-hand corner. If you press this, it gives you a choice of screens. So you can have multiply overlay screen, lighten these. You can also change the contrast and the Gamma to suit. Okay, let's choose one. I'm going to go with modern. And number 11. I quite like this. Let's have a look at the before and after. Yes, it gives a nice warm tone. Let's look at the screens. Multiply a bit dark overlay to light, even lighter. I think we'll leave it on normal. I think we'll put the contrast up a little bit. And maybe the gamma. Dan slightly there. I'm happy with that. So I'm going to say to adjustments. And now I'm going to export the new image to my camera. Roll and press Save. Take your time to experiment. Next, we're going to put this image together as this little boy with marbles and bubbles using different parts of eye color armor, open eye color armor, and import the marble image. The image is being taken from Pixabay, so they're quite legal to use, choose Style and press 2ND. This is going to change it into a tune image. Now let's save that to our camera roll. Next we're going to import the picture of the boy. Again, go to style and press two. Now we're going to save this image back to the picture icon and import the marbles. Now we're going to effects and blend. The bottom right-hand corner. Tap the picture icon, and import the tune image of the little boy. Move this over. See that looks quite good. Then we're going to tap the brush mask on the left-hand side. You can adjust the brush size. And what we're going to do now is to remove the parts that we don't want. Can reduce the brush size. And you can press, Zoom on the left-hand side and bring the image app so you can see the picture better. Press brush mask again and carry on moving the background. I'm going to reduce the brush size even further to go around the face. And we need to do the other side. Press Zoom again and move it back in. Brush. Finish off this bottom corner there. That's it. So I'm going to save the adjustment. Just be on the safe side. I'm going to save the picture as well. Now we're going to go to texture and bubbles. And choose some bubbles that looks quite good. Press Brush mask on the left, and then removes the bubbles. And the little boy space. That looks quite good, saves the adjustment. Now we're going to go to tone. And along the sub menu, tap, pop. I think this just gives a little bit more to the picture. Maybe just the gamma slightly. If you've pressed normal, you can multiply. Overlay, screen lightened. Overlay, looks pretty good. It's nice and bright. But let's reduce the opacity there. That's better. Now we're going to say the adjustment. And then save to the camera, roll. Open up, procreate, and choose your canvas size. Now, bringing the image from your camera, roll and press Fit to Canvas. I'm happy with that. Now, make a second layer. Have your brush on studio pen and white. We're just going to make the highlights in his eyes little brighter. And the highlights on his lit. Just to give it a bit more life to the picture. And I think that's it. Next we're going to do a collage. This is a 1920s lady and the butterfly on an interesting background. So let's get started and go to Eichler armor. Go to Eichler armor, tap the picture icon and get the background image from the library. We are. Now go to effects and blend. Press the picture icon on the bottom right-hand corner, and import the picture of the lady. Let's make her a little bit bigger and move her into the corner there. I'm happy with that placement. So let's save the adjustment. Now go back into blend, picture, icon and choose the butterfly. Need to move the butterfly around and rotate with the slider at the bottom. I think we'll make the butterfly little bit bigger there. Save the adjustment. Now we're going to turn. We're going to find in the sub-menu, drama, press on the window and look through the different options. This, in this case, I'm going to choose number nine. I quite like the orange with the teal color. Now let's see this further adjustment we can make by pressing normal. So we can multiply overlay screen lights. And I think the overlay looks good. I think we're going to turn down the opacity a little bit there. Safely adjustment. I'd save the image as well. Now we're going to go to texture and look for miscellaneous. Tap the window. And we're going to choose number seven. Let's make it a bit bigger. I'm going to encircle the butterfly. Just to add a little bit more interest. Going to save the adjustment. I still think we need some texture on there. So staying in the Texture menu, Let's go all the way to the beginning and press paper. And let's put a nice paper texture on there. The number 11, I like that. Saved the adjustment. And then save the image. That brings us to the end of the lesson on the Blend Mode. See you in the next lesson. 5. Lesson Four Creating with Compose: In this lesson, we're going to explore compose, a creative process ideal for producing abstract paintings. Here's an example. We're going to turn this into something like this. I say something like, As every image turns out completely different. So let's get started and open up a canvas in Procreate. First of all, choose the studio pen. Quite high size. Choose a nice clear color. Now we're simply going to do anything. So we're going to make shapes. Change the color. Do the outline and fill in the shape. Change the color again, and change the color once more. There. Now you see we have 1234 colors and plus white is five colors. I think we'll just change the red color to another one that's a little bit more a difference. You'll see why later. There, we've got a completely abstract shape, which we're going to save to the camera roll and take into Eichler arm. Open up Eichler armor, taps the picture icon and import the image you just made. Remember it can be any shape, any color, but it must consist of five colors. Now going to precess along the sub-menu. Find composed. Now you see it's changed the image into different patterns. There's actually five. If you look along the bottom, you will see squares 12345. On the right-hand side at the bottom is threshold. The threshold. If you move the slider, it changes the patents around. Change it. So you can see five patterns. That looks quite good. So now we're going to tap on the first square. This will bring up this menu. Tap on the window. And you'll see all these different patterns. For this first one, we're going to use the patterns that are provided. So let's see. That looks quite good. Now let's tap on the second window. Choose the window. And let's try the orange. You can change the size of the image by pressing using this slider to make the image bigger or smaller. Now, we're going to tap on the third pattern and choose another image. Let's go for that dark one. Now we're going to tap on the fourth. Open up the window, and choose a fourth image. Now, tap on pattern five. Open the window and choose another image. Now this one, it looks to be one color, but if you slide the size down, you can see it's actually another pattern. Night, if you look on the bottom right-hand side, you'll see an image that's called edge. If you tap on the color button next to it, you can change the color of the edge. Now you'll see a blue edge appearing around the different sections. And you can make this edge larger or smaller or have known. I think we'll go just for a tiny edge. Okay, so that's our first pattern. So in the top right-hand corner, saves the adjustment. Now we're going to look at what we can do with it. So we're going to go to form, look at different transformations. So we've got deforms, press the window, and we can change all the shapes there, the patterns in a ball, a swirl, or different shapes. That one's quite interesting. But none of them really appeals. So let's move on to glass. Now. Let's try waves. I quite like Escher. That one. The first one looks quite good. You can see all different transformations that you can make. Let's move on to tiles. That's completely different. That looks like a Persian rug. Let's try tunnel. That's quite good. I think for this particular image will stay with Azure. Can choose absolutely anyone that you like. Let's go with that one. So now I'm going to save the adjustment. And a fine, like I can go into town and choose different colors. That's quite good. Let's try vacation. And vibrant. I like that one. I think I'm going to use this. So now I'm going to save the adjustments. Is there anything else we can do? Now? I think we'll leave it at that. So let's have a look at the history. There's the first picture that we started with. The second, where we put the patterns in another variation. Then we change the color. And that's what we've finished with. So now I'm going to save the image to my camera roll. Now let's start again. An import exactly the same image from the library. So this is exactly the same as the last one we did, but it's going to look entirely different. So now we go into precess in to compose and their passions. News this threshold. There, we've got all different passenger. The button, press the first pattern. Instead of choosing the window, we're going to choose the picture icon. So I'm going to fill each of the areas with a pattern that I made previously in Procreate. So let's start with this one. Now we're going to go to pattern, to picture icon. Something that goes with the orange, maybe this one. And we can adjust the size to show different parts of the pattern. Now let's go to Pattern three. Picture icon. This looks really bright. Let's try that one. Good pattern for picture icon. Let's go with the butterflies game. We can change the size. Now let's go to Pattern five, picture icon. Let's try this one. But it looks like a single color, but actually it's not. If we move the slider will bring the pattern back there. That looks quite good. I don't really want to change the edge, so we'll leave the edge as it is. So this is our new design. So we're going to press adjustments in the top right-hand corner. Now what can we do with this design? We'll go back to the form. Prestige forms. A beautiful ball. That's quite good. I quite like the swirl. Let's save that as an option. Let's go to Azure. I quite like that. Let's save that as an option. Let's go to tiles. This is quite good for making a repeating pattern. That's quite nice, the glass effect. So let's save that as an option. Tunnel. I quite like that. So we'll save that as an option. Now we can go the top left hand corner and press our history. Let's have a look. This is our original image. This is our image with the colored tiles. This is one option. We chose a swirl effects. I quite like that. Another option, another one. And the final option. I quite like the swirl effect, so we're going to go back to that. Now. Let's have a look. If we can change the colors, will go to town. And let's try pop there. That's a completely different look. I'm going to save that option. Go to pop again. Gives us some really different looks. I quite like that one. So I'm going to save this to my camera roll. And then we are two ways that you can use compose. The world is your oyster. You can actually change these images even further by using brushes and effects. Thank you for joining me in this class. Now let's move on to less than five. 6. Lesson Five Bonus Tricks and Tips: Welcome to lesson five, bonus tricks and tips. I'm going to take you through other sections of the eye color on my menu. To deepen your understanding and usage of the app. We're going to start off with stamp. First of all, we'll bring in an image, tap the picture icon, image from library. And this is the one we're going to use. Now Press style. Look along the second menu and to Lucy stamp. As you can see, the image is changed to a pattern. If you press the window in the bottom right-hand corner, you will see lots of different patterns. That's quite nice. Now if we turn the opacity down, you can see it's put a pattern within the shapes in the image and the size. And there's lots of different patterns that you can use. But in this case, we're going to use another one of my own images. So Presley pitch icon. I'm going to choose this one. Put the opacity. I quite like that. I'm going to press normal multiply overlay, screen overlay. I like the image with the overlay. Let's just try the opacity. Just a little bit down. I think. Unlike any of the other similar menu, similar to this, we can adjust the size. I'm going to leave the size and you can turn the angle of the image. I'm going to leave that there. I'm happy with that. And I'm going to press adjust in the upper right-hand corner. Now, what else can we do with it? I'm going to go into tone. Pop. I wanted to make it a bit brighter. The window. Let's just try some of these pop tones. That's quite good. Number seven, let's go into normal multiply overlay. I like overlay. So I'm going to again tap the adjustment button in the top right-hand corner. Now, what can we do? I think we'll go into texture and we going to choose flares, tap the window, and there's all sorts of different players. We can use. I quite like that one, but it needs to be moved. So move it with your finger into the top right-hand corner. Now I'm going to spread it with my fingers there, but we can see little edges. So now we're going to tap the brush mask on the left-hand side and just run our finger around the edges and delete there. Now again, I'm going to press the adjustment icon in the top right-hand corner. Now, is there anything else we can do with this? I'm going to try. Let's look at Boca one. Okay, We're looking at number 21. I'm going to spread it with my fingers. Move it around. Like it's a bit more interest. We'll try the screens. We'll leave it on screen, but I'm going to turn down the opacity there. That's better. I'm happy with that, so I'm going to save it and adjustments. Now we'll just go and look at the history. The original image, the image with the pattern applied, with the screen applied. Now we've gone into pop and change the color. Now we have the flare. And finally, some Boca elements. So I'm completely happy with that. So I'm going to go into the top right-hand corner and save it to my camera roll. Now we're going to look at paint. But first of all, we have to pause a canvas there so we press the image icon. And I'm going to choose white phi by four, which gives us a canvas. Now we're going to go to brush and paint. This particular brush. I find it's much better to use your finger and not the apple pen. So let's see what we can do. If we go into the color icon, I'm going to change the color that I'm going to go to brush and choose a fairly ordinary brush and put the size and cover the page. Now I'm going to go to color again and choose a different color and a different brush. With this one. The size that I'm going to stamp it with my finger. I'm going to change the color and stamp it again. Let's change the color once more. There. Now I'm going to say that adjustment. Now let's go into form and choose plus. Click the window, and we can change the image into different types of glass. This could be quite useful for making backgrounds for use in Procreate or other digital programs. Now I'm going to show you how to use paint in a different way. We're going to bring in a canvas size five by four. We're going to go to brush and paint. But this time, instead of using the brush to color the background, we're going to bring in our own image. In the bottom right-hand corner. Press the square. And you'll see the word background. Press the picture icon. And let's bring in this background. We'll press Apply. And there we have our own background. Now press the brush icon. And we're going to put patterns on this background. Change the size. Choose an image, and press the size writer. Remember to click off the first image before you choose a second. That's not very good. Let's try another one. There that's better. Now go to the top left-hand side and press clean and clean off the canvas. Now let's have a look at some other images. See there's all sorts. Let's clean off the page again. Now staying on this flower image, we're going to change the colors. So we're going to color icon, change to any color. Then in the bottom right-hand corner, we'll press this icon. And if you look down the menu, you will see color variation. That right the way up. And then underneath that shadows to mess up slightly. It just makes the image stand out more. Now still, choosing the flower. We'll see as we tap it, it changes, color, changes at random. Now let's clean the page off and look at some more brushes. There's writing, cave drawings, hearts, trees, posters, fancy trees, butterflies, and so on. As you scroll down, you'll even see some figures, icons right at the bottom. I think there we go. You can always incorporate these into a painting. You already have. We'll use the patterns for pattern-making on your own background. I think that pretty much covers it. And remember, you can change the opacity, the size. We just go back into that other icon and you'll see you can change everything, their size, opacity, rotation, rotation, variation, and color and shadows. That pretty much covers the paints menu. And I think you'll be able to find some creative uses for it. Open up Eichler armor again and go to the top left hand corner and press the picture icon. Bringing an image from your library. This is a photograph and I'm going to turn it into a sketch. So Press style, sketch, the window icon. And we're going to look at number three, which gives us quite a nice outline. This can save a lot of time for Procreate users who are using a photograph. For reference. If you go to number four, you'll see it's a little bit more complex. So I usually use three or four. And when you are happy with the sketch, you can turn on the opacity if you want to, but you can do that in Procreate. So we'll just go to the adjustment. Save and save the picture. Open up Eichler armor again, tap the picture icon image from Library. And I'm going to bring in this image. This is an image I've painted for an NFT. And it's obviously a little bit dull, so I want to make it more interesting and brighten this up. So we're going to go first into tone and choose pop, because I want to make it brighter. I quite like the dark one. Let's look at the screens. Press normal. Multiply, overlay. Screen lightened. I like overlay. So now I'm going to save the adjustment and go to Texture menu along and find flares. Now, now we're going to look at the different players. That's quite nice. I'm going to move it into the corner. Maybe that one or that one. I quite like that to spread is a little. Then I'm going to go to the left and choose brush mask. And I'm going to just gently remove the edge there. Now I'm going to save the adjustment. And staying on texture. I'm going to put some Boca on the image. Just to give it a little bit more interest. That one's quite nice. I'll spread it with my fingers, rotate the brush my scarf, spread it with my fingers. Let's cover the whole thing. Maybe that one, that one's better. But I'm going to turn the opacity down. Then I'm going to choose mask, brush mask, and just remove any that looks a little bit too much. There. I think that's price and this image up quite a bit, so I'm going to save that. Now just as a reminder, let's have a look at the history. The original image brightened in pop. A flare added, some Boca added. So now I can go to Save Image. And that's it.
