I came across a great photo of a cabin in the woods by Daniel Cristian over at Unsplash and decided to use it for a nature study. Done in Procreate over an hour and a half using brushes from Frankentoon (my favorite!) and Mike McCain. #FinishedNotPerfect
I picked up a great Photoshop trick from Twitter user @Treatscraft. This is a quick and easy way to try out different color ideas based off of another image.

Just a quick blurb about it. It is a 3d pose reference/modeling app. You can also import props and create simple ones in app….

I used 3 brushes mainly- the Round Gouache (fine), Dry Bristle Round (pressure) small, and the Square Opaque. I used the Round Gouache mainly for the smoother skin parts- pressing down a bit gave a really nice smooth texture while pressing lightly gave a slightly rougher one……
