Folk Art Style Illustration on Your iPad in Procreate
I’ve gotten so many wonderful messages from iPad artists/designers around the world who love doing print on demand projects, but struggle to come up with ideas for images.
So in my newest class I decided to center all the projects around print-on-demand friendly projects! In the class, I’ll show you three different ways to create modern folk style illustrations on your iPad in Procreate.
When you watch the class you’ll get all of the brushes and stamps I use to create my folk illustrations including 8 paper texture brushes, 19 bird and botanical sketch stamps, and 13 folk art illustration stamps. I’ll also share with you the folk art style font I created, so you can incorporate some text that fits the style we’ll be using in the class into your designs.
First we’ll create a detailed symmetrical line drawing combining animals and plants with bold color. I’ll show you some tricks for creating a realistic paper background, and we’ll cover several ways to recolor your illustration to create multiple color versions.
Next we’ll create patterned animals and plants in a rectangular format that is perfect for print on demand projects. I’ll show you a ton of resources and ideas for folk art, patterns, and reference images so you can start building your own library of shapes and patterns.
Next we’ll create a folk art composition around a theme by combining stamps, and hand drawn elements. We’ll cover several different methods for creating the stamps, then combine multiple illustrations in a collage style composition with bold color.
The amazing thing about this process is that you can quickly create beautiful illustrations that you can use for gifts, greeting cards, print on demand projects, or client work. I’ll show you how I set up my files to make them easy to upload to print on demand sites, and how to keep the images flexible so they work for a wide range projects.
All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus. I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger. Don’t have a Skillshare membership? You can pick up a free trial and watch the class free here.
