MY THOUGHTS, INSPIRATIONS, & ALL THINGS ART

These are all of my favorite Procreate App brushes!! They're my go-tos :)) Some are custom made, some simply edits of standard brushes, some are older versions of brushes, and some are the new brushes in Procreate 4. :) 

If you'd like the brushes for free, you can download them here. If you would like to donate and download, you can do so here. :) 

I've included one brush from all of my custom packs available on Gumroad.

(Rough Watercolor, Glow Stick, and Willow Charcoal are from my packs.) :)

You can find the full sets in my Gumroad Store!

Enjoy! :D

(These work in Procreate 4 App available in the App Store for iPad and iPad Pro.)

I've been uploading some videos to YouTube lately. :) I've always wanted to post videos there, so I'm excited to have a few up at this point. Also, now that I do a lot of digital painting in Procreate, and the app automatically records your steps, I'll have lots to show! :D Can't wait to share more.

I just had to share a photo of my new kitty, Olive. She's the perfect studio companion. XD She's playful, sweet, and just so adorable. I can't wait to paint her!

I've opened up a shop on Society6! It's something I've wanted to do for a while, and now I have. :) I purchased a carry-all pouch and an art print of my piece

TIPS FOR ARTISTS

 PRACTICE!  It is the best way to improve.  Keep a sketchbook and draw in it as much as you can. Draw from life, photo references, and your imagination.

Buy the best materials you can comfortably afford. Of course, practice is key, but having the good stuff can't hurt. 
Check out my recommended materials lists!

Put a piece of paper under your drawing hand while you work. This really helps prevent smudging.

If possible, have your reference be the same size as your drawing or painting. This will help a lot when you need to take measurements to get proportions correct.

 Don't be afraid to try different mediums. You may like it!

Write out a sort of "Inspiration List" that contains words, themes, and ideas that inspire you.  This will come in handy if you ever have an art block.
