Illustrating Dynamic Portraits – Bring Your Characters to Life in Procreate Free Tutorial Download
About This Class
In this class we demystify the illustration process. You’ll learn to draw energetic portraits, add layers of personality and complexity, dress-up your people and place them in enchanted settings.
Throughout the class I walk you through my creative process from rough character sketch to character design, from finding the basic elements of energetic poses to illustrating an imaginary scene.
Starting with painting a dynamic portrait, you’ll learn how to make the drawing your own without copying what you see in a reference photo, using it for inspiration and a starting point to your own artwork. You’ll Learn to use masks and shading techniques, draw with the eraser, and paint relatable character in settings that tell a story. By the end of class you’ll be able to illustrate a complete scene around a dynamic portrait with skill and ease.
The class requires some prior knowledge of drawing in Procreate, but is beginner friendly as you’re invited to draw along with me in easy to follow steps. For the more experienced illustrator, sharing the style and drawing techniques that I use daily in my illustrations you’ll learn a workflow that applies to any future projects.
Key Skills Learned in Class:
~ How to paint people in energetic postures.
~ Drawing with Procreate tools and native brushes.
~ Creating enchanted scenes that convey mood.
~ Working with colors for a nighttime painting.
As BONUS to their final illustration project, students will learn to create mock-ups of their work. Mock-ups are a visually engaging way to present artwork as it would appear in real life on various prints and products.
