“I can’t find words to express my gratitude for this great class! I recently purchased the Procreate app, and though I wanted to create great artwork, I didn’t have the slightest clue! Your step-by-step instructions, your elaborate lectures, your tips and techniques, the awesome clarity of each lesson, and your cheerful disposition are all so awesome! For a total beginner like me, your class came upon me as a blessing. I always wondered how to bring out a natural gradient in seascapes and never knew it was so easy to create on Procreate! And I also had a great liking for sunlight and shadows. I was taken aback by your finished piece in the teaser for the class and immediately joined to find out how you did it! Each lesson is packed with so many tips and easy instructions, and I’m so amazed at the wealth of knowledge that you possess, Ms.Mikles! Though it would have taken years for you to figure out everything, you have so generously chosen to share your knowledge with us.. Can’t wait to try out all that you have taught and create a masterpiece like you someday! Thanks again.”

Hey there, digital artists!

I’m excited to welcome you to my class on digital illustration in Procreate.

Are you ready to embark on a journey of learning digital art skills that will make you feel right at home with digital drawing and painting? If so, you’re in the right place!

Why Should You Learn from Me?

Throughout my career, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to create digital art for various local and international companies, including renowned brands like Lego, Ariel, and Vela. From concept art and character illustrations to animations, packaging, and advertising concepts, I’ve had the privilege of exploring the vast world of digital art.

Who is This Class for?

Whether you’re just starting your digital art journey or you’re an experienced artist looking for new tips and tricks, this class is designed for you. And if you’re a traditional artist curious about expanding your horizons and diving into the realm of digital art, I invite you to join us too. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn a new technology and uncover a whole new creative outlet.

What Will You Learn?

I understand that learning digital art may seem overwhelming at first. There are so many questions: Where do you start? Which tools and software should you use? What’s the best stylus or digital pencil? Which brushes are the most suitable? How do you actually paint and draw digitally? Rest assured, my goal in this class is to address all these queries and more.

Together, we’ll create a fun and colorful underwater scene, and I’ll guide you step by step through the digital art techniques, tips, and tricks that will improve your digital drawing and painting skills. You’ll become more proficient and efficient, achieving better results in less time.

By the end of the class, you’ll have a beautiful illustration that you can use as a wallpaper for your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You can even print it out and proudly display it in your home or give it as a special present to your loved ones. The possibilities are endless!

Grab Your Gear

In this class, I’ll be using Procreate, a fantastic pixel-based digital drawing app for iPad. However, if you’re familiar with other digital drawing software like Photoshop, Fresco, Krita, or others, feel free to follow along. While the menus and naming conventions may differ, the underlying concepts remain quite similar.

Before we dive in, don’t forget to follow me here on Skillshare to stay updated on my new classes and exciting announcements, including giveaways. I also invite you to join me on Instagram, where you can check out my latest artworks and follow my artist’s journey through stories.

Are you ready to unleash your creativity and discover the joy of digital art? Let’s get started! I can’t wait to see what amazing artwork you’ll create in the class.

See you there!
