Learn to Draw in Procreate // Foundations of Style
A lot of creatives are in search of that special “thing” that makes our work unique. Something that makes our work so distinctive that when people see it, they know we made it. That “thing” is often described by the world “style”. When we say something is “stylized” all that means is that a subject is represented in a way that way other than how it literally looks. There are so many styles out there in the world, and almost infinite ways to translate an idea into visual form. But before you can delve into the millions of possibilities, you must first learn how to truly “see” and understand your subject matter. You need to start at the beginning.
Introducing my newest tutorial, Foundations of Style, part of a series of videos about learning to draw in Procreate. You’ll learn how to study a subject matter, identify it’s unique characteristics, break it down into simple shapes, and develop your own method for drawing that subject. These are the first steps in the process of stylizing an illustration. For our example, you’ll be learning a method for drawing a bear! If you struggle with how to begin a drawing, this will be a great video for you.
