“I loved this class. Sometimes procreate classes can feel a bit repetitive once you’ve watched a few but this class was so refreshing. I learned some new tricks and had fun making a piece of artwork.”

From Sketches to Magical Illustration: Blending Modes in Procreate

Hey, fellow artists!

Let’s talk about something that adds a whole new level of fun to digital art—blending modes! They allow us to create illustrations with captivating scenes and moods that express our unique creative ideas.

Why Should You Learn from Me?

Throughout my career, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work on story and concept art for Lego, where I discovered the power of using blending modes to create scenes with specific moods. From book spreads filled with intricate details to other exciting projects, blending modes have been a game-changer for me.

What WIll You Learn?

In this class, we will embark on a journey to create a stunning “starry night in a jar” illustration using Procreate. We’ll explore how to bring this magical night scene to life by using simple shapes, blending modes, composition tips, and sketching from references. I’ll guide you step by step through my illustration process so that you can create an awesome artwork that truly resonates with your personal style and preferences.

Along the way, you’ll become familiar with different blending modes and their effects, discover new ways to make the most out of the Procreate app, and find a color palette in the resource section that can serve as inspiration for your illustration.

Whether you’re interested in learning how to use blending modes in Procreate, eager to practice your composition skills, or simply want to have a blast creating a whimsical illustration with a magical mood, this class is perfect for you.

Alright, without further ado, let’s embark on this enchanting journey of creating a magical “starry night” illustration. I can’t wait to see you in class and witness the wonders we’ll create together!
