Traditional Sketch

18:01

Time to get down to brass tacks: starting the sketch! Feefal will show you all the tools she uses for sketching, such as pencils, sketchbooks, and erasers.

You will also learn the specific ways she likes to draw facial features, such as the nose, lips, and eyes and how to rework parts of the sketch you want to change. Feefal will demonstrate how to keep your drawing clean and crisp, to ensure it looks as good as possible!


03

Importing and Adjusting the Sketch Photo

04:50

In this lesson, you’ll learn Feefal’s personal tips and tricks for taking a quality photo of your artwork and preparing it for digital coloring.

Discover quick ways to edit your artwork in Procreate in order to remove excessive hues and tweak the contrast, brightness, and shadows so you have a neutral base to work off of when you add the colors in the next lesson.


04

Painting

16:14

Get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at Feefal’s typical painting workflow, used in all her gorgeous artwork!

She will show you all the steps involved, including a SUPER easy way to color your drawing without messing up the linework, a stress-free method for blocking in the base colors, and how she selects beautiful, balanced color schemes.

You will also learn how to create nice transitions between colors, draw smooth freehand lines, circles, squares, etc., add shadows and adjust your colors to get the look you want.


05

Rendering

27:16

Now that the groundwork has been established, it’s time to spice things up a bit!

In this lesson, you will learn how to add shadows, rendering, and more enhancements to your piece, including pro tips for drawing both flowing and curly hair and false sketch lines.

Discover the main brushes Feefal uses to create lovely textures and crisp lines in her illustrations. Understand why stabilization in your brush strokes is important, why sharp-edged shadows look so awesome and why gradient maps are super handy. Feefal will teach you how to use them all! YAY!


06

Final Details

19:55

Feefal’s favorite step in the illustration process: adding the final details. You’ll be amazed at what adding a bit of highlight, thicker lines and accent colors can do to a piece!

A huge benefit of working digitally is the ability to experiment with colors, contrast and effects and in this lesson, Feefal will show you precisely how to do all this.

Look forward to discovering how to add natural glows, where to place highlights on a face, why vignettes help make areas of focus pop and other fun extras!


07

Outro

00:38

And you’re done! Congrats!!

As an artist who is much more comfortable with traditional art and has been very overwhelmed with transferring to digital, this was incredibly helpful. I have not been able to find a tutorial that has fully covered all my questions, but this did a wonderful job. Thank you.
