Week forty-eight

We could not be more appreciative of this incredible community that has formed around creative people passionate about making art every day. With hearts full of gratitude, we are kicking off a Week of Giving! 


Over on Instagram, we’ll be giving away Master Bundles Monday through Thursday. Each day we’ll pick two winners. The winners will receive not one, but TWO Master Bundles, so they can give some awesome brushes to a friend or another artist.

You will have new chances to enter the giveaway each day. Follow @bardotbrush to get full details on how to enter.

This is all leading up to something HUGE on Friday…we’re giving away a brand-new iPad!!

Friday November 27 at 10:00 am Pacific Time

We’re back with another LIVE TUTORIAL and we’ll be giving away more Master Bundles, and a brand new iPad!

 You must be present during the Live tutorial to win the iPad and we will provide details about how to enter during the Live tutorial session. Please note that the winner must be located within an area where Apple or Amazon can ship an iPad. There are no substitutions.

New Tutorial!

My third Scene School video is all about how to draw in perspective! I’ll teach you the difference between one and two point perspective and when to use each one. I’ll show you the effects of manipulating your vanishing points and how to draw an interior scene using Procreate’s perspective drawing guide feature.

I’ve even prepared a Procreate perspective worksheet so you can follow along and learn! 

November Prompts

scene school!

It’s our final week of Scene School…are you ready for some city life? This week we’ll be drawing an urban scene. Here are some ideas to get you thinking of how to approach your urban scene. You could draw some storefronts, a street corner, or a cityscape. Your scene could be inspired by a country or famous city. You could draw a city from the future or a place with an old-word vibe.

For this final week, I’d like you to consider two things for your urban scene: Season and Time of Day


Decide now what season it will be in your scene: winter, spring, summer, or fall? Choosing a season will give your scene a special mood and feeling and help you think of extra details you can include.


Time of Day

The time of day you choose will significantly impact how you choose to draw and render your scene, especially in an urban environment. In the morning or afternoon, buildings and objects will cast long shadows on the ground. If it’s night, you’ll see the glow of electric lights through the windows. What time of day will you choose?

Head over to the Urban Scene section of Scene School for instructions about how to approach each prompt this week that will result in a fully developed urban scene!
