Pattern Fun in Procreate: How to Draw Bugs

Play Video

Play with patterns and draw these cute bugs!

Join me live as we play with patterns and draw a set of fun bugs! In this Procreate tutorial, you’ll learn to draw bug bodies from simple shapes while experimenting with color. Then the real magic happens as we add an array of patterns and textures to these awesome insects. Plus, you’ll get great practice using alpha lock, clipping masks, and blend modes. In this tutorial, I’ll be using my new brush set, Imperfect Patterns: a mega set of repeating pattern brushes, plus the Imperfect Inker. Grab them before the tutorial so you can join in the fun!
