Week forty-four


Draw a cute ghost and make a cool vintage printing effect in Procreate!

Follow along and draw with me as I teach you how to draw this cute ghost! You’ll also learn about using layers in Procreate, clipping masks, and I’ll teach you a simple technique for drawing fabric. Then I’ll show you an easy way to make a cool vintage printing effect using Procreate’s built-in filters. I like to use this effect in many of my pieces!

Week 44: Spooky Stuff

The week of Halloween is upon us! So I’ll admit I don’t really like “spooky” things. Scary, creepy, and terrifying imagery is not my thing. So why is Halloween one of my favorite things? Because it’s the most creative of all the holidays! I love getting crafty with costumes and going wild with a theme. But even if you aren’t the DIY type, choosing a costume is still a major creative expression in my mind. It’s always so fun to see people’s interests, ideas, and even sense of humor, come to life in the costumes they wear on Halloween. Halloween is a time for the imagination to run wild.

For me, making costumes means:

It goes to show there are lessons to be learned in everything we do. I hope you have fun creating some Halloween-themed artwork this week!
