We worked on creating simple poster style portraits on our iPads using 4 colour palettes in this week’s Spark class. I drew this portrait of Stacey from Sktchy during the class. After class I played around with the gradient map in Procreate to create the alternative versions below.

This is a portrait of Svet from the Museum by Sktchy app. It’s been a while since I’ve done a portrait like this on my iPad. I did a whole series a few years ago and I’m revisiting the style for a class I’m teaching later this week.
I drew the blue and yellow version in the top left corner and then created the other colour versions by playing with the colour curves in Procreate.
I haven’t used my Chromagraph pencil brushes in Procreate for a while and it was definitely fun to play with them again for this portrait of Alina from Museum by Sktchy.
I’ve been teaching some iPad drawing in my Sketchbook Skool Spark class for the past few weeks and this is the portrait that I was working on in Procreate in those classes.
We started by learning how to adjust brushes and work with layers and clipping masks before moving on to drawing our portrait of Annett. It’s been a lot of fun and I’m amazed at how much progress the students have made!
Shaking myself out of post-Christmas malaise and into drawing action with this portrait of Summer. I got a Repaper device for Christmas and drew this old school style with a pencil on my Repaper, then imported that sketch into Procreate to add line and colour to it digitally. I need to work more with the Repaper to figure out how to get the best of it but it definitely produces a more authentic pencil line than working directly on the iPad.
This was fun!
Playing around with new brushes in Procreate for this digital portrait of Fernando from the Museum by Sktchy app.
This is my second portrait of Leeza from an image of two photos collaged together. In my last post I shared the first one, drawn with Copic markers and coloured pencils. This one was drawn digitally with marker and coloured pencil brushes, using the same technique but working on my iPad Pro. I used True Grit Texture Supply’s KolorMarc and Chromographbrushes.
I bought some fabulous new brushes for Procreate by the TrueGrit Texture Supply – the KolorMarc pack. They are marker brushes and I used them for this portrait of Bianca from the Museum by Sktchy app.
I’ve used a whole of range of different brushes in Procreate to try to create the effect of Copic markers but none have worked like these. The richness of colour and texture is just fabulous. And they really do go down like Copics. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, TrueGrit make the best Procreate brushes on the market.
This is Willie from the Museum by Sktchy app drawn on my iPad Pro using the Procreate app.
