More about this course

Hi! My name is Lettie and I love to create all kind of illustrations in Procreate. Pushing the limits of this awesome app is something that I really enjoy. I especially like to use it for creating realistic paintings, watercolors, animations and paper cut style illustrations.

You’ve been asking me for a while how I give my characters illustrations a paper-cut feel.Well, your wish has been granted, because in this class we will create exactly that, a paper cut layered illustration in Procreate!

This is a step-by-step class, we will make together the sketch… add color… then shadows and… finally, texture to our illustration.

In this class we will cover things like:

  • Symmetry tool.
  • Customizing QuickMenu.
  • Clipping & Layer Masks.
  • Modifying Brush Settings.
  • Different ways to add paper texture to our drawings.

And much more! 

You can download in the “Skills” tab, all the custom brushes, palettes, drawing studies, my sketch and also the images, that you will need to draw along with me. If you are interested in getting all my Seamless Paper Texture Brushes you will find them in here.

Basic knowledge of Procreate is recommended but not required to take this class. Having said that, let’s get started!
