Thank you so much for this tutorial! I started watching late last night, so was only going to map out the sketch. I ended up finishing the whole drawing – I really enjoyed it.

Hi Lisa I just wanted to ask you that I us iPad 7th generation with Apple Pencil generation 1
So my Procreate glitches a lot when I draw I am really tired so that why I can’t use the awesome brushes of yours

Hi Anum,

I would restart your iPad and try a different resolution for your canvas. You should be able to use the brushes without an issue. Make sure your iOS and Procreate are up to date.

This is a great tutorial and thank you for making the brushes available for us. I’m probably going to end up drawing this little guy a few times to get it right – especially the far eye.

This is awesome! Even thought I don’t have procreate, I love watching you make art and can’t wait for when I can! The cat is adorable!
