Winter Illustration in Procreate + 27 Free Brushes and Stamps

When it’s cold and windy outside, there is nothing I like more than curling up on the couch and drawing winter plants, objects, and lettering projects. Let’s be honest. I like eating cookies more, but this is definitely #2 on my list! So I decided […]

Society6 for iPad Artists and Designers

Society6 for iPad Artists and Designers

I have loved the concept of print on demand since I first heard the term in 2013. It took me a few years to actually start my own shop, but I looked on with jealousy as so many amazing artists and designers grew their shops on Spoonflower, Society6, and RedBubble.

In 2015 I finally started some shops of my own and over the years I’ve been tweaking my process and style. When I started moving my workflow from computer to iPad, my print on demand process became a whole new animal because of the image size limitations. Now that I’ve got my process down pat, I decided to create a class to show you my whole process from Procreate image to finished products and mockups.

In the class, you’ll learn how to create and fill your Society6 shop using your iPad.  Society6 is a print on demand site that allows artists around the world to upload their artwork and put it up for sale on a wide range of high quality products.

What I love about Society6 is that artists and designers don’t have to pay any fees to make their work for sale, and once you have the process down, it’s easy to add new work to your shop and share it with the world.

I create the work for my Society6 shop on my iPad, and upload it directly to my shop without using a computer at all. I want to show you my process for creating and uploading artwork for Society6 so that you can maximize the number of products you have for sale, and minimize the amount of time you spend uploading and resizing.

My goal for this class is to show you how easy it can be to add items to your shop, so that you can just focus on creating beautiful work and not have to worry so much about the technical details like image sizes and orientations!

First we’ll go through the basics of getting set up, making your shop look beautiful, and uploading your artwork.  I’ll show you a few different methods for creating high resolution images so that your work looks crisp and clean on the products.

Next we’ll look at a several orientations that you can use for your artwork.  I’ll share with you my cheat sheets for Society 6 products so you can quickly choose a size and orientation before starting a new project.

Next I’ll show you how I turn a repeat pattern into an image that fits on almost all Society6 products.  We’ll look at how I create and size my repeat block in Affinity Designer, and go through the whole process from exporting the image to applying it to products.

Last we’ll look at ways to turn your product images into beautiful mockups for your website or social media accounts.  I’ll show you how I use Procreate to create shadows and realistic backgrounds that will make your products stand out online.

I’ll share with you 12 customizable wallpaper patterns that I created, and show you how to find and create patterns that match your personal style.

In the class we’ll use both Procreate and Affinity Designer, but you don’t have to have Affinity Designer to do the steps in the class.  Affinity allows you to create large images that fit on all Society6 products, whereas if you just use Procreate you will be limited to small to medium sized products.

The amazing thing about this process is you can immediately start offering your work for sale, and have a resource for beautiful product images to display your work.  Showing your work on products rather than just showing the images can help make your social presence as an artist or designer more professional.

I’ll share with you my template for social media images, so you can easily tailor your mockups to fit the image ratios for whatever social platforms you’re using.

If you’re looking for a way to start offering your work for sale, or just want to display product mockups online using only your iPad, this class will show you everything you need to know to get started.
