How to Draw a Mid-Century Style Illustration // Stay Home and Draw

Play Video

Follow along with me as I show you how to draw a cute character in a midcentury illustration style in Procreate. This artwork was inspired by the Making Art Everyday challenge. The theme for April was “Weather + Art Styles”.  The focus is to draw various elements of weather while exploring a variety of different art styles, one of them being mid-century style! The drawing prompt for this piece is “wind.” For more art-style inspiration, see my article, 30 Art Styles to Try in Procreate. You can also see how I used the Procreate animation feature to animate the leaves on this drawing!
