Insect Illustrations and Animations on Your iPad in Procreate

Insect Illustrations and Animations on Your iPad in Procreate

I love adding playful insects to my illustrations because it’s an easy way to add a whimsical feel to an otherwise boring composition! So I created a class to show you my whole process so you can start incorporating insects into your illustrations. In this class you’ll learn how to create unique insect illustrations and animations on your iPad in Procreate.

When you watch the class you’ll get all of the color palettes and Procreate brushes I use in my insect illustrations including 14 drawing and texture brushes that will help you add tons of depth, texture, and grit like this to your illustrations:

I also created an inspiration board of over 400 vintage insect illustrations so you will have no shortage of reference material for your compositions.

First we’ll look at how to create a single insect illustration and turn it into several different compositions, so you can play around with the colors, and layouts that work for your personal style.

Next we’ll turn one of our illustrations into animation. Creating animations is a great way to get your viewers to spend more time looking at your work.  I’ll show you some tricks and tips for quickly creating an animation so you can easily add eye catching movement to your work.

Last we’ll look at how to create an interaction in your illustrations by combining an insect and an object with tons of layering and texture.  I’ll give you lots of ideas for objects and insects to combine, and we’ll look at ways to create interesting interactions that draw your viewers into the canvas.

This process is super quick and fun and will give you the confidence to start adding insects into your illustrations.  You can use the projects you create in this class for your website, social media accounts, gifts, or print on demand 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.  Let’s get started!
