Faux Embroidery in Procreate

I recently got the WhipStitch Craft Kit for Procreate by Abbie Nurse (Uproot Brushes). It’s a very impressive collection of brushes including fabric textures, buttons, stitches, and much more. You can see the kit here (affiliate link).

The first thing I did was to play with the brushes, and I created this sampler. And yes, there are googly eyes! I love the attention to detail in all the brushes.

The next logical step was for me to apply the techniques to some of my Quirky Portraits. Here are two versions of Bailey the dog, and Elsa the cow.
