About This Class

Welcome to the "Learn Perspective in Procreate - Two Point Perspective" Skillshare class!

This class is part of the class series, where I demonstrate all types of perspectives - in this class you will learn how to draw objects in two-point perspective.

The class is easy to do and follow, and there are  various ways to finish the class project. Very beginners can follow me step-by-step, and more advanced students can have full artistic freedom within the framework of the class project. So any experience you have, you will have space to unfold your creativity and challenge your skills.

At a point, shading and simple perspective is not enough to express your ideas through your artwork. Mastering skills, like the ability to draw objects in two-point perspective will make your art more professional and gives you tools and possibilities to bring your imagination to life.

In today’s class, we are going to create a magical illustration of a bunk-bed hideaway (in two point perspective), so the class project will be really fun to create. I will be working on an iPad in Procreate, but feel free to follow the class in any software you are comfortable with using. (Even traditionally.)

 The class comes with some cool resources, worksheets, brushes, everything you need for a successful project.

By the end of this class, you will have knowledge and practice in applying two point perspective to your work. You will be ready to draw variously shaped objects in different points of views, to create magical scenes and to purposefully use perspective to define the viewpoint of your audience.

So if you are ready to join me, see you inside the class!

1. Introduction: [MUSIC] At a point, you will just need to add space to your art. This course is part of the class series where I'll demonstrate several ways to do so, and in this class, I'm going to show you how to draw objects in two-point perspective. Hey, my name is Alexandra, aka The Articular. I'm a mother, an artist, an illustrator, professional art teacher, and an online educator. My students like my classes because they are easy to do and follow, and there are various ways to finish the class project. Very beginners can follow me step-by-step, and more advanced students can have full artistic freedom within the framework of the class project. Any experience you have, you will have space to unfold your creativity and challenge your skills in this class. In today's class, we are going to design a magical bunk bed hideaway in two-point perspective. The class project will be a really fun to create. I will be working on an iPad and Procreate, but feel free to follow the class in any software that you are comfortable with using, or even traditionally. The class comes with some cool resources. You will have everything you need for a successful class project. By the end of this class, you will have knowledge and practice in applying two-point perspective to your work. You will be ready to draw variously shaped objects in different points of views to create magical scenes, and purposefully use two-point perspective to define the viewpoint of your audience. If you are ready to join me, see you inside the class. [MUSIC] 2. The Class Project: [MUSIC] Welcome. I'm so happy that you joined me in the class. In this video, I'm going to talk to you about the class project. It is a usual thing to demonstrate two-point perspective on buildings, street views, street corners. But I thought, let's do something more interesting, more lifelike, that you would really apply into your illustration work. Are you really going to illustrate a street corner? I don't think so. I really thought that in this type of illustration that I'm teaching you, it will be more interesting to create really a scene, an illustrative scene where you can really practice how to apply this two-point perspective. I was also thinking about what can be magical scene? My childhood just popped up in my mind with my brother we always created bunk bed hideaways. I thought, yeah, let's do this. I think everyone can relate to this. If not in your childhood then as a parent. Basically what we are going to do is to create a cuboid in two-point perspective, and then design it to a bunk bed, and then add some magical elements to it. Play with light and play with some layering and stuff like that. But that is the painting part. The most important part and the focus of this class is the two-point perspective itself. In the resources that you can open when you are in a browser and not in the Skillshare app, you will find a tab, Projects and Resources. You hit that and you will find it down below. You will find the worksheets there that will help you to progress. I have prepared everything in them as sketches and the things that will help you to practice on your own. You will also find my base sketch in the original artwork that I'm providing you for reference. Many beginners, if you're intimidated with creating a cuboid, there will be a video that will explain you the whole process how to create the base cuboid. But if it doesn't work for you for some reason, you will have the base catch that you can modify. But I really want you to be creative and keen to practice. This is your practice. Follow me step by step, but make sure to apply something from yourself, your taste. [inaudible] students can have a little fun with this project. Later we will learn about the worm's eye view and the bird's eye view and that will help you to set a different camera angle on the illustration and you can play with that. That will be fun and I'll be really interested in how you solve this problem and how you apply these different perspective in this scenario. Take this as a challenge. First and foremost, we need to do a little recap on perspective and then dive deep into the brain perspective. See you next video. [MUSIC] 3. Perspective RECAP: [MUSIC] In this video, we're going to do a little recap on what is perspective, what are its components, and how to apply to your work in order to add space to your art. First of all, perspective is basically the placement, size, and orientation of lines that help us to translate the three-dimensional world onto a two-dimensional surface, where we are drawing. Now, there are several components of perspective and several types of perspectives that we can create with them. Also, don't forget, you can also add dimension to your work by shading. But at a point, shading might not be enough. The first type of perspective, is that I call linear perspective, has only a horizon line. The horizon line is basically the line between the sky and the land, or the surface and background. This works in super stylized landscapes, and the golden rule applies here, things that are closer are bigger than things further away. This means if I draw something closer to the horizon line, it will be further away and it will be smaller, and if I draw something further away, it will be bigger and it will appear that is closer to us. Then there is the one-point perspective where you have a horizon line and also one vanishing point. The vanishing point is a point of disappearance on the horizon line, so if we have a more complex scene with for example buildings, the sidelines all get the direction of the vanishing point. This works with objects or buildings which have parallel side facing us. Their front side is completely facing us. We can only see one side like for example on this 3D that we have created in a one-point perspective class. We have the front side facing us and this side is going into a vanishing point, one-point perspective. Now, what about two-point perspective? [MUSIC] Let's see what it is about in the next lesson. 4. Two - Point Perspective: [MUSIC] Let's explore two-point perspective in this video. Two-point perspective is basically the same as one-point perspective, but we have two vanishing points now. Let me open the two-point perspective worksheet. It applies to scenes where we have objects which do not have the front side facing us. It is basically most of the time, as in nature, we do not have things arranged perfectly, so you don't always look at things where a front side is facing you. We can use it to depict buildings, streets, and objects too. Let me just show you what you can see here. Here's the horizon line, and here are the two vanishing points. Here is our object. As you can see, we can see the edge at the front, and all these lines are running into these vanishing points. Every line is either totally vertical or they go into one of the vanishing points. I will turn off in the worksheet the sides so that we can see the back of it. As you can see, even the back lines are running into this points. This line and this lines. We also have guides for these, and this is just a mask so that we don't see the horizon line behind this object. So we're going to create this together now. I will turn off everything. I will turn off the worksheet and keep this horizon line here. Create a new layer and choose a color. I'm going to choose this light magenta. Now, we are going to draw a cuboid, not a perfect cube, so that you just get the idea of what we are learning here, and we are not going to place it completely to the middle between these vanishing points. Not to the middle, but a bit to the side so that we can see really one side a bit more than the other. What will help you when drawing these vertical lines, this canvas guide? Hit the "Arrange" button, go to Canvas, and hit "Drawing Guide." Then you will get these guides that will really help you. You can edit it, Edit Drawing Guide, to make this grid bigger so you can have a bigger grid size. For me, that worked pretty well. You can also set the color of it, if you can have it white and you can have it black. I love it to be dark, almost black. The first thing is to define this edge. I'm just going to draw a line here. To make a straight line, just draw a line and hold down to make it straight. This is the quick-shape function in Procreate that I'm sure that you already know. Now, we are going to draw guides. If you have been with me with a one-point perspective class, you already know that Procreate has a built-in perspective tool where you can place several vanishing points, but I really want you to understand how these lines go, so now we are going to do this manually. Now, create a layer below this layer of this edge, and choose a light gray color or any color that you can differentiate and connect these edges. I'm just going to connect these dots to the vanishing point, and this one also here. Now, go back to this base and choose again this magenta color, and let's define the length of this sides. I'm seeing this side a bit more, so this is going to be longer. I'm drawing a vertical line here, and this is going to be a bit shorter, like this. Now, I can define the whole, so I will just connect these lines here. Now, I'm going to just mask this behind it. I don't want to erase because I want this horizon line to stay there, I just don't want to stay it behind this object. I'm just going to create a layer, put it below everything, and just choose the background color and just paint over in. You don't need to do this, I just want it to make a bit more clear so that you can see better. Not everyone can see in dimension. Now, we'll just create the back. I'm going to create another layer and choose a bit darker gray for the guidelines for the backside. Now, we are going to connect this new edges to these lines, and also these ones, as we are going to define the backside of it. We already connected this dot here, so we are going to connect it to the other one , and also here. This is already also connected to this one, so we're going to connect it to the other one too. Now, we have two crossing points. They might not be perfect because we are not working with a small brush, but it is going to be okay. I will go and create a new layer and choose a bit darker magenta. I already have it here for the back. I will just define the backside or the back edge of it. As you can see, we can connect these ones. Now, we have this back side, and we can connect these ones, so that we have that side. I will turn off the back guidelines, and now we can see for it. Can you see that? It is amazing and super simple. Now, let's just create this side thing that I've done, it is just totally easy. I'm going to go back to this front base and set it to reference. This will make these colors that I'm going to drop in to a different layer, so I'm going to create a different layer, maybe below it. I'm going to drop these colors to this layer. But as this is sad to reference, it'll work as if I had this outlines at this layer. I'm just going to choose a light gray and just drop it here, and I'm going to choose a darker gray and drop it here to this shape. While we have a two-point perspective cuboid here, this is going to be the base for our class project, so we are going to recreate this. But I would love to show you how to draw different geometric shapes in two-point perspective, and that is what we are going to practice in the next video. Now you know how to draw a cuboid in two-point perspective, I will see you in the next video, and practice a little bit more. [MUSIC] 5. Practice : [MUSIC] Welcome to the practice video in which we are going to draw different geometrical shapes in two-point perspective. Everything starts with a cube. As you can see, I already have a cube drawn here. I will turn on its back. We're going to start with a cube because every other shape that we're going to add into it will fit into this cube. I will turn off the worksheet. Everything that's on it. I created it so that you can have a reference there. But we're going to create a new one, so create a new layer. Choose this light magenta or any other color that you want to work with. Let's just start. What is the cube? In a cube, you have all sides the same size. Again, we are not going to create a cube from the complete front because it will look weird. You can see in an angle if you are not really a person who can really see in dimension and see these geometrical things, it will be easier for you to understand what's going on. You can turn on this drawing guide so that it will help you to count and make things evenly sized. But remember, this is practice and also we are in illustration. I don't really love to do things too precisely. We could have worked with tiny very straight lines also previously, but I've chosen an illustration brush to create the horizon line too. It may create some uneven things when you are drawing, etc. I just don't want to put pressure on you because we need to enjoy this, we need to enjoy illustration, and we need to enjoy creating perspective as well so it is fun. I will just create a cube. I will start with drawing an edge again. Count three squares up, three squares down, so you have six squares. Now I will create a new layer below it where I'm going to do the guides. I will just connect this edge and then make it a bit lighter so that you can see it better. This edge like this. I will choose this magenta again and beyond the layer of this side are the edger. Now, if you remember the golden rule, things that are closer to you look bigger than things far away and when you have an object in two-point perspective, the sides go further away. It will be not six squares to create a cube. But maybe, I would say the third of it. so maybe four squares. Again, you don't need to be too precise, this is not a geometry lesson. As we can see this side more, this side will be even shorter so make it just two squares. This will make our cube look just right. You can connect this. We can again call it cuboid but I didn't really want to work with a rectangle. This is going to be quite imaginary. Let's create the back of it. Again, I will create a new layer below it choose another gray and connect which lines? This, this, this, and this, so I will connect it here and I will connect this here. Now, I again have this crossing point. I will go back, create a new layer below the base, choose a bit darker magenta, connect these dots vertically. Connect this here, this here, this here and this here. Now we have a cube. I will turn off these guides. Now, what about the other geometric shapes? As I told you, they should fit here. Drawing a cube will be always a help for you to create these things. Let us start with a cylinder. A cylinder has a round top, a round button and then vertical lines for the sides. We will need to put an ellipse to this side of it. I will create a new layer for this and I will choose a different color, I will make it blue. For example, if you look from the top, the circle when fits into a square where it touches it, at a half of every side. What you need to do now is to define the half of every side. Actually, you don't really need to do this because we are not going to work with these odd objects in this class project and this class is for beginners. But it would be really good for you to at least know how would this thing work. Again, I don't want to be too precise and too in detail because that's not the point of this class. I will approximately just by eye just set the half of these sides. I will create onto a new layer, an ellipse and place it here. Then distort and you can just make it touch all of these points. Then you can duplicate it and place it down. I don't like the top one, I will make it a bit like this. Make sure that these sides will be vertical, I will connect them now. Now I have a cylinder in two-point perspective, I would just turn off the cube so that you can see in. Here is it, I will turn it off now everything, put back the cube. Now let's talk about a pyramid. I will choose a red color, for example. The pyramid will have this exact same base but its top will be at the middle of this top square. I will create a new layer and create some guides for this point. I will connect these lines and then I will have the middle of it. I will create a new layer and just connect this to this base size. I will connect these sides as well and I will turn off this top guide, I'll turn off the cube. Now I have a pyramid in two-point perspective. Now we know how to create a cuboid, a cylinder, a pyramid in two-point perspective, there is a point in this because they have sides, they have edges. We are not talking about the sphere because it is round, it doesn't have edges and you can create a sphere in dimension with shading. Now, let's move into the next video where we're going to see what happens when we play with the placement. [MUSIC] 6. The Bird's Eye and The Worm's Eye View: [MUSIC] Until now we placed the shapes to the same position. The cube was crossing the horizon line. Now, I would love to play a bit and show you that placing shapes about and below the horizon line can create a bird's eye view and the worm's eye view. Let's keep it simple again, and let's use a cuboid for demonstration. As you can see, I already done this, if you place a cube above the horizon line, it will have the effect of a worm's eye view as if you were really small and looking up to a giant building, for example. If you place it below the horizon line, then, it will have an effect as if you would be above this object. You see it from above, that's the bird's eye view. There are examples that I will show you right now. I will turn this off, and here is the Example 1. Here's a cuboid above as if it was a building, and here is the little man, and some trees, and as if you were in a helicopter, [LAUGHTER] and here's Example 1. Even if I haven't placed this whole building fully above the horizon line, it has the effect as if I was here, and I was looking at this object or this building from below. You can play with this in the class project I wouldn't recommend the bird's eye view for the hideaway that we're going to create but maybe it would be interesting to create a cuboid in this position as if you would be a small child looking at this hideaway. It would be a bit more amazing, a bit more pushed, and challenge your creativity and skills. If you are more advanced, you can apply this thing to your artwork. Let's just now try out to simply create these things that I have created, this cuboid so that you can see how it works, and then you can do whatever you want in your class project. Either turn this up, create a new layer. Again, choose this magenta, and we had it in the center. Let's now work in the center until now we have worked in the sides so that you can really see the size of the objects. Now, we're going to take a look on the top, and on the bottom of this object. Try to find the center between these two vanishing points. I would do three squares, approximately, this is too long. Like this. Leave out three squares as well so that you have space to add these sides to it. We are in the center, center line, three squares, three squares, three. Again, we're going to create the guideline and doing the same exact things in different situations. Now, I'm going to just connect these lines to these vanishing points. We're going to draw them all together. Let's go back to the site. Choose the light magenta. Let's define the size. Let's say two squares. Will it be? Now, we have this size that we can connect. Now, we will have, again, need to connect these dots. Here, we don't see the bottom or the top, so this is finished. This is a simple side when placed in center. This is why I didn't want to have it completely. One side a bit longer since you can see it really in space. I will create a new layer again for these guides. Let's make them darker. This side here, this side here, here as well. This exact same thing. I'm going back to the base, choosing the magenta, and you place these glides be a little bit so that it does not seen. Let me just draw it like this, and draw it like this. I will turn off the gates. You have a cube in the bird's eye view, the worm's eye view, and in a normal street view as it is called like this. Now, you know so many things. We have finished the theory and the practice parts together. Now, we know what is two-point perspective and how to apply to various situations. In the next part of the class, we are going to work on the class project itself to which we will need to get a little inspiration. See you in the next video where we will get some ideas. [MUSIC] 7. Get Inspiration: As you already know, we are going to create a bunk bed hideaway. The base of it is a cuboid, something like this. We are going to design a bunk bed into it. Again, beginners just keep step-by-step with me more than one student can try to work with these worm's eye view to make it a bit more interesting. Now there are several types of bunk beds. Somehow the shape of a house. So you can really make a shape of a house. Don't need to just stick to this shape, if you are intimidated, stick with it. If you feel a bit creative, think of a solution. What we need to do now is to go to Pinterest and Google, look for bunk beds and choose the ones that you like, and take design elements from it. What else we're going to do? We're going to also choose magical elements. I am going to have a piece of textile over it. It is going to be a hideaway for real and some string light so we can have a mood, etc. You can also create a mood board with color combinations that you like that will really help you in a second when we're going to talk about the colors. So I will just go to Pinterest and I will write bunk bed hideaway. Let's try it. Yeah, your bunk beds. You can just take a look on bunk beds as you can see some have wider lower parts. Some have these stairs. Let me just write hideaway here. There's string lights. You can put pillows there into the bunk bed, different textiles. As you can see, this simple thing is also in a two-point perspective so just imagine that this is a bunk bed. Something like this. Go through these images and get some ideas. Create a mood board. My mood board is ready. I had just created six screenshots that I have found on Pinterest that might be interesting. What I really love is this thing, but I love it in this way so in this gray color with these colorful glowing stars, I also love something like this. For some reason, I love this blue color and this red combination of these two, it looks pretty amazing. For this one, I really love the mood of it. Maybe I will create a background that is like this. There will be string lights like this, textile like this. As for the bunk bed, I'm just going to go with something like this. I forgot to put it here. Yeah, I will make it smaller and put it here. As for the design, I love this so much this is so simple, but still it is a bunk bed but with this roof, I don't know how say it, my daughter had a bed like this. I'm going to put this design into a two-point perspective and somehow implement all these things. The next thing is to create a sketch and I will keep this image in my mind while I'm designing, so I may put that as an inspiration into the file and keep this as a reference to come back here. Now, we just move on to the next video where we are going to create the sketch itself. [MUSIC] 8. The Sketch: [MUSIC] Now that we have everything, we know how to create a cuboid in two-point perspective. We know how to create a worm's eye view. We have our mood board. This is the time that we can start to create or sketch. Let's just go to the line art part on the worksheet. You can turn this off. I just create this so that you know where to go. Actually I created a screen-sized canvas. You are free to create any sized canvas that you want to work on. What we need to do now is to turn on the drawing guide. Hit the orange button, here is the drawing guide, turn it on, edit drawing guide, and click the perspective here. This is the built-in perspective tool of Procreate that will be really useful for us now to create the base for our illustration. If you hit anywhere on the canvas, you will place one vanishing point on the horizon right away. You can place it anywhere on the canvas and you can place free vanishing points because they are free-point perspectives, but now we are at a two-point perspective. What I want you to know is to hit twice on the horizon line so you will have now two points to move around. As you can see, you can place the vanishing points outside the canvas. This is what we are going to do. As I already mentioned as overworld and reality cannot fit the canvas, you need to think about the outside space of it, so I would love you to place these vanishing points outside the canvas. I will make it a bit smaller at about this size. This will make more natural scene and make sure to have the horizon line horizontal because you can create horizon lines like this. But this is for more complicated scenes. You don't need to place it into the center. I would say place the horizon line a bit lower, like this. I will make sure that it is horizontal, so I'll play with it a bit. Wonderful. Now you can change the colors of these lines so that you can see better what line will go into what angle, or you can set the color right here. I will keep it in blue and when you hit the other ones, so select that dot, you can change the color of that one. Amazing. Now he'd done. There is another tool and it is called Drawing Assist. When you create a new layer and hit Drawing Assist, every line that you draw will be either vertical. I will draw vertical lines, horizontal, or they will go into those vanishing points. If they are in an angle, all these lines will go into these vanishing points. This will be a great help to create a base for our illustration. I will choose a bit thicker pencil so that you can see what I'm doing. I'm working with into sketching with a 6B pencil and I have chosen full black to sketch. I'm in this assisted layer. I have my pencil and my color. The first thing will be again to set the edge of the bunk bed. I will place it here. I will make it a little bit bigger above the horizon line as it has nice effect. Now I will continue drawing these sides of it, this side will be shorter. I will erase this one here. It looks great. Now I don't want to over-complicate this so in my mood board, I've chosen a design with this top, but I started to draw previously and it became a bit too complicated. It took me a lot more time and thinking and I realized that this is a beginner class. I will take this part from this bad to design. What I'm going to do is to hold down this image. Click "Gallery". Go to my line art work and it should import right here. Now I will just place it to this corners so that I can reference it. This is going to be my bunk bad. Let's start drawing. What I want you now is to keep the assisted layer here and make sure to put these main elements into it so they are in angle. But then I want you to have this sketch sketchy so really like an illustration. This means that you don't need to overdo this base, just make sure that you have the main lines in the two-point perspective. I will start with this side. This will be a bit bigger than this one. I will not have this above thing here. I will try to make the wood that is made from, I will design a bigger part here so that the kids don't fall down [LAUGHTER], here as well. I had a bunk bed when I was a child and I loved to create hideaways in it. There will be two things like this. Then I will erase this part and we'll add it back here to add this wood. It can be approximate. Again, rely on your eye you don't need to be perfect, you are not an architect or an illustrator. I want this to be as sketchy and painterly artwork. Doesn't look like the original one, [LAUGHTER] doesn't lead to. The main point is that I have reference here, like this, art is all vertical, for some reason. I'll turn off Drawing Assist because it is not liking eraser so I can erase in that angle. I will erase this and redraw them and put Drawing Assist back. You need to follow these pink ones. This is going to be in the street view level. Does this look good too? I think it's great. I will add this thing here so that I can see the wood itself here like this. I will need to at least note the back of the bag and then place all the things inside. This is the back. This is going to be vertical from this part. You are not an architect, you don't need to do complicated stuff. I find this complicated even for myself. You don't need to overdo it. This will be sketching. The next thing we are going to do is to go to this assisted layer, lower its opacity, create a new layer above. What I'm going to do is to speed up the process and draw over it without making straight lines. We draw it with my hand drawing and try not to make too many straight lines because I want this to be catchy and have these imperfections in it so that really is a illustration. Then I will also add these magical elements that I've chosen, these textiles and the string lights. I will speed this up so that it's not that boring to, see you when I will be finished. [MUSIC] I will turn off the back. Can you see that it looks more illustration like. What I want from you now is to add these elements then with the mattress into it. My idea was to add the text tie like this or something like this. I will take decimate also. I will speed this process up again and we'll discuss what I've done later. [MUSIC] This is the sketch I'm going to work with. Let's do a little recap on what we have done in the sketching part. We have created a base cuboid. You need to make sure to have all main lines in two-point perspective. Then we redraw the whole with your pure hand drawing. This will make the sketch more natural. Then we have added all the chosen elements to make the whole illustration look fun. Now that you have a sketch, let's continue to the next video where we're going to talk about the colors that we're going to use for this illustration. 9. Creating The Color Palette: [MUSIC] Let's talk about the colors and we're going to analyze the thing that we're creating. So there are no characters here. This is a static image, but I want to bring it to life. I really want to make the inside of this bunk bed to be as calling. There will be warmth and it isn't night. Outside will be cold or dark as night. We are going to work with two colors two base or main colors or two dominant colors. There will be a cool outside color and a warm inside color for the bunk bed. When we have two dominant colors, we can use complimentary colors. They will feed each other and make your illustration look really good. We have the color harmony tool here. I have tetradic here, so just click here and hit complimentary colors. And now you will choose complimentary colors. Just started back here to the brightest. Now just go around and choose colors that you like or would like for your illustration. I don't know. I want to choose a warm color for the inside of my illustration. I love this color, this orange color. This is going to be one color for me. You can create a new palette. I'll go to the Palettes, create a new pallet, and set it as default. So it will open up when you are in the different tools. So I will just add it here and choose this blue as well. These are going to be my base colors. Now, I will go back to classic because I always love to choose a lighter and darker version of a color. And then I will just pick some other ones that we'll make these colors pop more. So when I'm working with complimentary colors, I don't necessarily have to limit myself by them. You just choose these two for being a dominant color and build a color palette or color scheme around these colors. And when they will be put together, they will just look great, because the main dominant colors compliment each other. I will need a lighter color for the lights. I guess. I will choose a color like this. I will need a darker one as well. If you have taken any of my shading classes, you know, if you have a color and you want to shade it, you will choose a color that is next to it on the color wheel and choose dots, darker version for shading. This will look great. Let's go for the blue one. I will choose a lighter one. May be here. I will choose a lighter again from a color that is next it. I will go ahead in darker and choose a color like this. Maybe a bit purple color. What I love is this dark, indigo, blue, saturated, that will look good as well. I will choose another one here. I could use a bit of pink, beautiful red. I will choose a cool color too. As you can see, here's the line that defines that these are cool colors and these are warm colors. That's color theory. And we're not going to go into that too much. I will choose another cool color, may be I will go for this dark turquoise. I'll just leave it there. I'll choose five warm colors and five cool colors, starting with a complimentary color scheme. You can combine these rules with your tastes. You are free to do that. Maybe I will not use every color, will just see. Now we have the colors chosen. In the next video, let's talk about the brushes. [MUSIC] 10. The Brushes: [MUSIC] In this video, we're going to try out some brushes that are built into Procreate. I haven't created a brush set because I want you to learn how to choose brushes based on their function. Basically, you need a brush for creating shapes. I will just create a new worksheet for this. I'll just create a screen size canvas and choose black for explanation. I have a pencil, so you will need several types of brushes. You will need the shaper. I usually create my brush sets based on this idea so that you have a brush for every function. I really want you to explore now and learn how to really choose brushes, what qualities those brushes need to have. We are going to go off for it in a second. You need a shaper to create the shapes. You need a shader to create the shadows. This shader is usually a texture brush. It will nail them both. It will create shadows and create texture the same time and it saves a lot of time. Texture and then you need brush for details. Basically, that's it. What qualities these brushes need to have? The shaper has to be a solid brush. This means that you need to build a solid shape which is not transparent and you can then build everything about his base shape because with the shape you'll create the base shapes. It can have texture. Can have texture in it. It doesn't necessarily have to be a round brush that is solid, but it can have little textures at the edge. But the main thing is that you need to be able to create shapes for them. When set to smaller, you need to be able to create a line with it. It will work also as a liner. I will show you a brush like that. In my free illustration brushes, this is a great brush. I can create lines with it. It is a bit textured, but I can build shapes with it. This is a brush that works just fine as a shaper and a liner. Then you need a brush for shading and texture. Now, for example, my shade of brush is something like this. Its quality is that it has to have a texture, it has to have transparency, and it has to be pressure sensitive. [NOISE] For example, this shader brush, it is transparent, and then I increase pressure and it gets darker. This is really nice for shading. Can you see that? I can create amazing shadows with it. You can find these two brushes in the resources section. These are my free illustration brushes that are my favorite and I offer them basically, everywhere. [LAUGHTER] You can download these for free. But I don't want you to use those. I want you to explore the brushes that are in here. Then you need a detail brush. A detail brush is a brush that has again, texture. It is not just a solid line, texture and works well when it is thin. It has a liner or create this detailed texture lines with it, it is decorative. There you go. Let's just explore the brush set here. We need a shaper, and I want this painting to be painterly. I will just go through these brushes that are here that I actually don't really know, and just find a brush that will work well, for example, I love this brush. This looks fine. I'll use it as a liner. I will see how it works for creating this hole. [LAUGHTER] It is a Nikko Rull brush. I will duplicate it and create a new set so that I have it in one place, and I will just add perspective. Where was it? I will just place it up here. Let's find the shader. This looks good. I'm going to duplicate it. I'll just place it there. It's fine. I will just place it here so that we can see. Cool. This is too textured, maybe cookies. Yeah, little pine works fine. I will again, duplicate it. These are the free brushes. Let's just do a little recap on what I want from you now. There are several functions brushes need to have. You need to be able to create shapes, you need to be able to create shadows and texture, and you will need a brush for details and some things that you can create texture as well. I want you to go through the brush sets that you have in your brush library. They can be any brush and not necessarily the ones that come with Procreate, but maybe you have downloaded some from Creative Market or different places. You need to have a solid shaper, so but it can work like a liner. [LAUGHTER] Find a brush that is solid, has a little bit of texture, not too much and use it for building shapes. Then you will need a shader or textures. You need a brush that has a texture. It just has transparency and pressure sensitivity so that you can work with it. Then you will need a brush for details that works really as a thin pencil or as a thin brush. It can have texture and it can have also transparency. It is not good if you have too much texture, though there are some dots around it that could be a bit too much. Take it as an experiment. I want you to go outside from your comfort zone and explore these things like you cannot miss anything with it. Cannot lose anything with it so let's experiment together. I have never used this brushes for illustration too. [LAUGHTER] It will be fun. Also, I need to tell this, don't limit yourself. I just said that you need to do this but you are not forced. If a brush doesn't work for you when you are painting, choose another one. I'm including my liner and shaper in the resources. In any case, that you don't find brushes for this, you will need to find a detail brush tool, but you can use that liner as well if you make it then for details. That's all. Now, we have the brushes, now, we have the sketch and also the colors, what's left is related to just start painting. See you in the next video where we're going to start our illustration. [MUSIC] 11. Painting the Bunkbed: [MUSIC] Let's do this. This is going to be exciting. What I'm going to do is to just delete this. I will place this base bunk-bed sketch that I have created here and you can use it. If you weren't successful with creating this base for yourself, you can use this and you can modify it. I will just keep this and group it and put it into worksheet. What's this line here? I will turn my sketch back on and I will turn off the drawing guide so that I'm free. I will keep the composition like this, mainly because I want it to be then square size so that I can post it on Instagram. I'm going to just work on this one and then leave the background out. What I'm going to do is to create a new layer. I will place this sketch to the top and make it to multiply. I'm doing this so that if I create a layer above, I will be able to see through it and I will lower its opacity as well. I'm in this Layer 6 again, and I will just create a base. I need to choose the nickel round brush for my shapes and choose a color actually for the booth of the bed. We haven't chosen color for that. This is what I'm saying,. You need to be flexible. I would choose a brown, but I love a bit reddish brown like this. I will just place it here. I will just start painting. I will speed this up so that it's not that boring. When I have something to say, I'll just say it. Just keep watching. What I wanted to say is that I'm going to make first this front, and this I will make a different layer so I can play with the shading layer. Also what is good is to set the eraser to the same brush that you're working with. I will just keep my eraser of nickel row, so it will be easier for me to keep these main shapes. Sometimes just turn off the background. I mean the sketch so that you can see really what you're doing. Now I create a new layer for this other part. Everything that I can see from this side. This way, I can really set the shading later, so keep it like that. On one layer you will have everything you can see here from this side, and on the other layer you will see these things. I will also choose a bit darker color for that part. I will go back to this layer and just add these things here. Can you see that? It is already in dimension, so I let this side, and this is in shadow. This will create this amazing and easy shading right away. Just one little shade darker as this one. Now I will add this top part as well, and I need this one too here. This will not be the same because there will be this little pillows. I will just keep this one and go to this darker one and just simply add even darker one because it is really just the top of the bed. Now I will add the mattresses into it and then work on some details. [MUSIC] 12. Painting the Elements: [MUSIC] So let's just continue by adding all the elements that we have chosen to our illustration. I'm going to speed this process up again so that I don't bore you. I forgot this part, [LAUGHTER] we need to go back to that. This is where I'm using this darker color for the side of this mattress. Again, I will choose even darker color for the side of the mattress, that is here. I just love how painterly this is, it is not that strictly everywhere perfect. [LAUGHTER] I love this. The next thing I'm going to do is to add these main elements. So I will create a skewed pillow here on top of everything. I will Alpha Lock this layer so that I can add this in here. Let's just start to add mood. Let's go to the background color, this one. This is my main color. I'm not sure what color this blanket could be, maybe it's turquoise. Let's try. I will need to add shadows. [LAUGHTER] I will try with this pillow. I will choose a darker version of this color, I will Alpha Lock it and make it smaller and just add bit of a shading here and there. I don't want to over shade this illustration actually, I love it how it has turned out, just as a rough as it is, you know what I mean? So I will add these little details above right now and it just looks better. Looks cool. I will do something with this as well. Also here are these new patterns on this turquoise thing. I will Alpha Lock it. Go choose turquoise, choose the darker color, then just add a bit of texture to it. Before I continue, I will go to this mattress too and just maybe add a bit of shading there as well, and also to the bed. So let's just see what it does. You also need a texture. So I will Alpha Lock it and just go through it basically. I will go live and wired and just go over it. It looks great. Add a little texture to it. Then we'll go to this other side and maybe try with this. I will turn off the sketch. It looks pretty nice. I will need to add some details. So the wood, I will draw the wooden texture over it. I will choose a lighter color. It looks great. I will add this drawer down here, I forgot that. Here comes the fun. Now I added some more details. I will turn on the sketch and try to add this textile over it. So I will create a new layer above everything and choose, I don't know, maybe this red or should it be gray? Or I just try it. I need to place it above everything. When you have the solid shape, make this layer a bit transparent. Looks fine. I will create a new layer below it and add back textile. I forgot to add mattress up there. [LAUGHTER] So I will need to do that now. I will place it below it all and make these back textile layer a bit more transparent than the front is so that we can differentiate between the two. I will draw this stars on it. I turn off the sketch. Looks nice. I will need to add some of the lines to it so that it has this effect of a textile. I'll choose this shader brush for myself and make it a bit smaller. I will actually create a new layer above this so that I can play with it. Change the Blending Mode to add, and this will create this huge effect. Wow, it looks nice, really. Incredible. I will try it on this top as well. So I will just go and change the Blending Mode to add and paint over it. You can see how nice things you can find if you try an experiment. It really looks good. Add some glowing effect already. Looks pretty amazing to me. Then now let's play with the light. [MUSIC] 13. Painting The Lights : [MUSIC] I will turn back the sketch, create a new layer. I will choose black for the string, and I will firstly just draw the string. This is going to be the front and I will add some lights inside as well. I will now go to the luminous light pen and choose my color for the light and I'm going to actually turn off this sketch so that I can really add lights here. Super cool. I will create a new layer below this dark part and do the exact same thing. Wonderful. Now what I want to create as a bit inner glow of this orange color. I told you that we are going to do so let's experiment with that. I will choose a brush, maybe this perspective brush, this hertz, and let's just try that. I will make it big. Add an inner light to it inside. I will erase this and the top and my desk. There is this inner light. I will place it a bit about everything. Maybe here. I will also need to add light above the pillows. Let us work on the background a bit. I will go here and create a layer and choose this dark indigo and with this hertz, I will just create a floor. As for the sky, I'll create a new layer and choose an even darker color. Looks like a see, right? I can add stars to the sky. Let's just do that. I will add a bit of light to the sides as if it was late and I am going to use this little paintbrush as well. So I will create a layer on top and add lights like this. I mean, it is lit so I will just add a bit of light here and there. I will also choose drop shadow brush of mine. But you can do this with simple painting brush, the round brush and make it transparent. Now I'll just add a little shadow here also below this thing. This is called inclusion. I choose black, or dark gray and just add a little drop shadow below this things. Now I call it a day. I'm super happy that you were with me in this process. I would just love to do a little recap on what I have done in this painting part. At first, I have divided this side and this side and placed them on different layers so that I can play with the shading immediately. I shaded with color basically. This is going to be, or this was lighter, this was darker and we have dimension already. Now, filling with the shaper and the main shapes with the detail brush, I have created this wooden texture over it. Then placed some little elements like these two pillows and blankets and then place this textile over and played with the blending mode. We have chosen add to create this little effects over it. Then I placed a little bit of a transparent layer of light inside so that it glows. We created a string lights, and then just painted a little simple background to it. Now, it is absolutely on you. How far will you take this illustration. This is enough for me now, but you are free to continue and to maybe build the world around this. Maybe you can place characters in it as well. I don't want to limit you, so just feel free to do whatever you like. I call it a day. This was incredibly fun to create. I'm so excited to see what you will create. You are always so much more creative than I am and I'm so happy to guide you and to just show you the possibilities that you have inside yourself. See you in the next video where we're going to sum it all up. [MUSIC] 14. Final Thoughts: [MUSIC] Congratulations, I'm so proud of you for finishing the class. I'm sure that your class project looks incredible, so please make sure to share it with us in the project gallery. Down below where you had the resources you have to create a class project button and make sure to put it there, and also find a few words about your experience in the class, how you felt during the process, what were your weak moments, and why did you realize maybe to help score some other students as well. I am always so excited to read your words and see your whole process. Now, you are ready to apply two-point perspective in your work. I'm so happy for you. Now, let's do a little recap on what they have learned in this class. You have learned that you can create two-point perspective with the horizon line and two vanishing points. You have learned to draw different geometric shapes in two-point perspective and also learned how to create a bird's eye view and the worm's eye view. Then you applied all this knowledge to a line art and learned to choose colors for atmospheric illustration and also how to choose your brushes with all the functions that you need in an illustration process. Lastly, you'll learn different painting and lighting techniques that help you to create a beautiful illustration. It was so much fun. I would love to ask you to leave me a review so that I can see what you think about the class and also other students can see what they can expect from the class. Follow me on social media, on Instagram and Facebook, so that you stay up to date and don't forget to follow me here on Skillshare as well for the same reason. It is a pleasure to have you in this class. Stay tuned for the new classes, and until then, just check out my older ones. I'll see you in my other classes and happy creating. [MUSIC]
