Hello, everyone. Today, I gonna paint this seahorse by Procreate. Drawing its silhouette at first, then painting colorful patterns in it. So please be sure this is not a real seahorse painting. This is a creative design tutorial by using a seahorse silhouette. In addition to Procreate, I gonna use this app too. It is Adobe Photoshop Sketch. This app is for free. Let me explain this in general. It is made for sketching, literally. You can use it for rough sketch or professional drawing like this. The reason why I like this app is that it is good for water painting. Its water expression is awesome. So, I gonna introduce this today. Also, I gonna paint a picture by picking up good points from both apps. Please try to focus on the way of combination in this lecture. This is an off topic, but Adobe announced a new drawing app a few days ago. So, let me introduce its overview. This is Adobe Fresco. It’s brand new drawing app for iPad. The point of this app is you can draw not only Vector pic, but also Raster’s. Before this video, I have painted a Spider-Man. That was painted by Adobe Illustrator Draw. Adobe Fresco is a kind of mixture of Adobe Draw and Photoshop Sketch, I guess so. Before this announce, Adobe called this app Project Gemini. But now, It’s called Adobe Fresco. It has been looking forward to releasing, and said release date is soon. But at last, it was officially announced. I’ m looking forward to too. Also Photoshop for iPad. Anyway, I gonna explain about Adobe Sketch. If you know about what the Adobe Sketch is before Adobe Fresco, you will be able to use Fresco smoothly too. So this lecture is good for using both apps. OK, let’s start. First, I gonna draw a seahorse silhouette. I already picked up some original pictures randomly. Bring the pictures whatever you want. Then, open your Procreate and create a new canvas. Create a canvas by Screen size, and make it vertical. You can make it after creation. Then open you photo app by Split view, and drag and drop the picture on Procreate. After import, be sure to select the arrow icon and edit this picture to make it useful, by reversing, distortion, resize and so on. My habit is making original picture to face left. Do you remember the Spider-Man painting? That faces left too, all of my paintings. So, choose the direction whichever you like. First, decrease this pic’s opacity. 10% is fine. Then add a new layer and draw black lines in it. The Brush I gonna use today is Line pen dark in Amity’s original brush set. If you don’t buy it yet, use Studio pen in Presets. It has almost same taste as Line pen, so it’s gonna work. After selecting pencil, I gonna draw outline along with its silhouette. Just casual is fine. Draw along, little by little. So I gonna make this part fast forward, but before making, let me talk about something. It’s about the previous video, me appearing in it. Thank you for your comment a lot. I am happy to feel like being closer to you all. I got a lot of comments saying that facing to be shown. I am not supposed to ban my facing on the Internet, but I have a reason to avoid it. Because, I usually shoot my video when I wake up. I film my painting right after dashing out of my bed. You know what I mean? I don’t want to show my awful sleepy face. I regulate it by myself. That’s why I don’t. I can appear my face if I want, But it might be a reason to cut back my upload. And I think my viewers basically want to know iPad information. So I gonna continue to upload my video in a same style to keep this frequency. If I feel like to appear, I gonna do so. I’m not good at waking up. My morning routine is filming, exercise. Then going to my office, and back home at night. After that I edit the morning video. Youtuber does not live an easy life. But it’s fun and makes me keeping upload. So thank you for your support. Please wait my facing patiently, one day. OK, after drawing outline and painting it black, I gonna fix its shape better. If you do so, select Liquify from Effects. Then select Push on the leftmost. By using this effect, you can fix its shape like this. It’s liquify drawing, I name so. Using this technique, you can draw seahorse stomach or tail part well. Let’s make it better. Silhouette is done. Next is by Photoshop Sketch. Open your Sketch and create a new canvas. Tap this plus button on the corner. Choose the canvas type as you want. I choose iPad Pro Vertical. Open your canvas and the interface is like this. Brush and eraser are on the left, layer is on the right, and export is on the right corner. And here is the watering paint, at the bottom of the layer brush. I gonna use this today. Pick a color, whatever you like, I gonna paint something. Painting is like this. Can you see? It’s running on. Even when I stop holding, running on doesn’t stop. Can you see this running? Then, pick a different color, and drop on it. They keep running with mixing up. It’s spreading. Looking like real watering. It’s interesting. Also, there is a four leaf icon under the brush set, here. This is Fan icon. You can stop that running by selecting it. it’s like a dryer. This is Fan icon. So, I gonna tap this. When you tap it, the painting stop spreading. Then adding new color again, and paint it. When you find a good mixture, tap this fan icon. It stops running and you can keep that mixture. This is a process. Pick a color, let it running, and stop mixing by Fan icon. This is…(Siri voice) Sorry, my Apple watch bad. This is a way of making watering pattern. Also, this liquify expression is not included in Procreate. But PS Sketch can. I guess, Adobe fresco has a same function as Sketch. I mean, this watering tool. This is a kind of Adobe AI function. It automatically calculate the range of running. This is one of the strengths Adobe has. Also, this is the good point I want to introduce in this lecture. Make good use of it and export to Procreate. For example, Procreate is working on the left, and PS Sketch is on the right. I gonna mix them together. If you already have a plan to mix them, You should do water paint with an imagination where these colors are put on the silhouette. This is a technique to make it smooth. OK, color is done. Next is import from PS Sketch. To export from Sketch, you need to select this pattern. Then drag and drop to Procreate. Just slide to left. And Procreate shows plus icon. OK, it’s done. import is success. I haven’t seen people who use 2 painting app together like this, But this is the iPad’s good point. You can make full use of app’s good points at the same time. You can say it’s a mixture of apps. You don’t have to finish by single app. you can use more. It’s about a perspective. please keep in mind this. Next, select the color layer and choose Clipping Mask. When you activate it, the color layer is cut along with the silhouette. Let me do this again. Set the color layer on the top. And there is a silhouette layer below the color’s. Then select the color layer, and choose Clipping Mask. It’s done. the silhouette is covered with the color along with outline. Also, you can resize and relocate it after Clipping Mask by using the arrow icon. So, duplicate the color layer, select the upper one, and open its Blend mode. You can add other effects here. It has various effects. If you are interested, try these effects. This time, I gonna add Overlay. I need more creative elements in it. So I gonna add a new layer and decoration here by Brushes. To do so, I gonna use Flicks in Spraypaints. I like this brush. So I often use this in other paintings. Its expression is like water splashing. By using it, you can add more liquid and water feeling, like this. After scattering, open the brush layer and change its Blend mode. Then you can feel a different impression from it. So checking Blend mode makes it better painting. Also, when you use Flicks brush, you should select a bright color. Then your decoration works much better. OK, it’s almost done. It has a good combination with paint splashing and liquid feeling. Looks good. Next is background. Now it has a white plain back ground. But I need textured one. It gonna work better together. So bring some white background, whatever you want if it has some texture. This time, I bought a good background from Unsplash, the free photo app. Resize it and set this layer to the bottom. Now, some patterns are out of line. You can fix it by sorting layers or Clipping Mask. Then it makes clear, without any out of line. So, Clipping Mask is important. OK, it’s finished. Yes, it’s like this. Done. By adding texture, a quality of painting changes quite a lot. It gets much gorgeous. Like a poster. In other paintings, you can try to add textures like this, not only painting. OK, That’s all today. If you like this painting, please push Like button below. Also, please subscribe this channel. When Adobe Fresco releases, I gonna make the tutorial about it. I’m looking forward to introducing. Thank you for watching, Bye!
