Draw a Seasonal Wreath in Procreate

About This Class

Creating illustrations digitally can really optimize your workflow. It allows you to create even more beautiful drawings that are already digitized and ready to be sent to a client or posted on social media. And using textures can really elevate your possibilities by adding that hand-drawn look to your work.

Join me in this class to create a beautiful textured seasonal  wreath illustration on your iPad in Procreate. I am going to walk you through all the steps to creating your composition and you are going to experiment with: using textured brushes, adding shadows and highlights using different shades of color and playing with composition to optimize your work.
