I’m actually quite happy with how this worked out. Normally I propably wouldn’t pick cacti as a subject but they turned our to be more interesting than I had thought.
I’m really only just statting to learn Procreate and for me the best way to learn has always been by doing it myself. After spending close to 12 hours, 12k brush strokes and 60+ layers on this (!!!) I feel much for confident about the basics of the app. It’s done with native brushes - I didn’t go shopping just yet.
