Procreate iPad Food Illustrations

Egg and tomato breakfast bagel. I used one of my own brushes that I made in Procreate. The wood texture is from a photo that I photographed from a tree.
I took a learning how to shade in Procreate course on Udemy and this is one of the assignments that I was to do. Create my own ice cream cone and focus on shading and highlights.
A Unicorn Cupcake. After taking a course on your Demi on 15 easy ways to use painting techniques in Procreate, I was able to create this magical unicorn 3-D cupcake.
Here are my Blueberry Pancakes! Thanks again to a Udemy class on painting, I was able to achieve a realistic pancake picture!

Fun Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Art

The one thing as an artist I’ve always wanted to do is be able to draw my beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs. My goal for the year 2021 is to be able to draw them consistently and feel comfortable coloring them in the fun iPad drawing app Procreate. I’ve been taking classes on the website Udemy and Skill Share to learn more about cartoon drawing and painting techniques. Below I would like to show you some of my creations thus far.

This is Sadie, my 8 year old Cavalier Who is dressed up for a day in Paris, France. This gave me a fun way of playing with fashion illustration which I’m very much interested in. I do have to get better at drawing fashion models. The time being, I can add some fashion on my dog!
Here is Sadie throwing a snowball at my other dog, a Labradoodle, Duke. This was a great challenge for me. I’m not used to driving elaborate at all and working on trying to create texture in the image without it looking too messy was quite a balance.

I started this right around Christmas and finished it by New Year’s Day. I have three Cavalier King Charles spaniel‘s and one Labradoodle. I really wanted to create a Christmas ornaments for our tree of the four dogs.

Once I start feeling comfortable with my Cavalier King Charles drawings I will branch out to other dogs. I’m looking forward to this year as I hope to really grow with experience using Procreate and cartoon drawing. I am going to take a break from Watercolor for the time being to see how far I can go with this new venture.

Winter Mittens created in Procreate!

Here are my designer mittens that I created with a few of my own brushes. The mitten texture is from a photo of a quilt that I photographed. The fuzzy cuff is from a texture of a close up photograph of a dog bed.

I am having so much fun incorporating my photos into digital drawing in Procreate.

Take time for yourself- Procreate digital drawing Bubble Bath

My sister and I are doing a Instagram challenge for the month of January. One of the prompts was bubble bath. Now with my new fascination on learning everything there is to drawing with the app Procreate, I decided try to draw a bubble bath in Procreate.

What I love about Procreate is I’m able to incorporate my own photography into creating brushes. I used a textured brush that I made from a pine tree photograph to accent and give texture to the plants. With the hair towel, I used a photo of a quilt that I made into a quilt texture brush . The marble floor is from a photograph of a marble floor that I made into a brush.

These are stressful times with Covid, daily life pressures, all the crap that’s happening in the political world. It’s important to take time out for yourself. Do some thing that will give you the peace and quiet that you so deserve. It’s so important to your mental and physical health. So if it’s taking a bubble bath, sitting by the fireplace and reading, going for a walk outside, whatever it may be, take your time.

For me, it’s creating art. Getting lost in my imagination and working on getting my ideas on top paper, the iPad, writing. Taking a walk with my husband and dogs.

What does me time look like for you?

If you’re interested in joining this challenge on Instagram, we welcome all mediums, you could do one or all prompts, whatever works for you. Just use the #januart2021
