Before I get to the artwork, I wanted to let you know that I am working on two new classes. In the first one, I will show you how to make pattern brushes in Procreate; the new version 5X has some features that make this very easy. In the second, I will show you a bunch of ideas for displaying your digital art online.
I have been working again with Alaina Jensen’s alcohol ink brushes for Procreate. In this one, I have gotten away from my usual bright colours for a pretty cool result.
This is a portrait of my friend’s dog Leo, where I used a couple of Alaina’s brushes to create a colourful texture that I blended with Leo’s photo.
In real life, since alcohol inks are transparent, they can’t really be used on a dark surface. But digitally, there are ways around that. Here’s an example.
