Monthly Project: June
Make a Postcard
June’s Making Art Everyday’s theme is Vacation Mode. We’ll be drawing all kinds of vacation destinations and modes of travel. We thought it would be a fun monthly project to utilize those vacation-style drawings in a travel postcard!
If you’re a beginner, choose one or two simple things to illustrate (maybe a popular or notable thing about your chosen location.) If you’re looking to challenge yourself a bit you can try drawing a scene or include character’s in your postcard.
Before we get into the project details, I wanted to share with you that I have a NEW Skillshare class coming soon!
In this class you’ll learn how to manipulate text while you create a vintage style postcard in Procreate! I’ll teach you a handful of text effects like 3D block shadowing, inner strokes and more! At the end of the class, you’ll have an awesome postcard that you can mail to a friend or family member!
Let’s Break it Down
2. Get Inspired!
3. Do some practice sketches of your location.
4. Create your final postcard rendering.
Use whatever brushes or method you enjoyed during your experimental phase when you were doing your practice sketches. Don’t forget to create the backside of your postcard too!
MAE Monthly Project
Making Art Everyday is a series of daily, weekly, and monthly prompts and challenges to help you overcome creative fears and develop your art-making practice. Every month, we will feature a new theme that will allow you to hone a set of skills, practice drawing something specific, or complete a project.
