Digital oil painterly portrait with Procreate
What you'll learn
- How to mimic oil paint with Procreate
- How to make painterly portraits with Procreate
- Basic knowledge of Procreate
In this class I'll show you how to oil paint with Procreate. I'll show a portrait, but the technique applies to any other subject.
I provide a brushset and a reference photo, available to download under the videos of the class.
First I'll explain what is a good reference photo for this particular technique, you're welcome to use your personal photo, or browse through the Pinterest board where I gathered 200 references photos, all copyright free. Or you can use the photo I show in class, available to download in class. It's a photo by Vladislav Nikonov on Unsplash.
Then we will setup our canvas to get the best of our device, we want the biggest size possible for our canvas.
I'll show you how to use the oil brush and how it behaves.
Then we will trace over the photo for an accurate drawing, but if you prefer to draw directly that's fine too! I just wanted to focus more on painting than drawing in this class.
We will then paint the skin, this is the longest part of course, as I wanted to show you in detail how to achieve this painterly look.
After that we'll paint the hair, adding details on it, and finally the background, and will integrate the face in the background.
At the end of this class you'll be able to paint your own portraits, in this painterly look and feel, but without the mess of real oil paints!
Who this course is for:
- Beginner or medium advanced digital painters
I’m a French artist, both digital and traditional. I love to paint with gouache, and my favorite subject is portrait. I draw digitally as well. I like to change mediums and have fun in sketchbooks. Color is my daily feed, either with gouache, colored pencils, ink, oil, or digital. I’m really happy to teach what I’ve learned along the way.
