Let’s carve a pumpkin in Procreate!

Let’s carve a pumpkin (without getting covered in pumpkin guts!) In this Procreate tutorial, I’ll teach you how to draw a pumpkin on a wood-textured background with a starry sky. You’ll then digitally carve your pumpkin and create a cool lighting effect to make it glow! This tutorial will give you lots of digital art skills practice, including working with layers, alpha lock, clipping masks, and layer masks, creating textures, applying blend modes, using the warp and distort transformation modes, and more. See how to draw a jack-o’-lantern like mine, or carve your pumpkin with whatever design you want!
