Description


If you are a traditional media artist looking to try out the exciting digital medium, this is the definitive guide for you.


As an artist primarily working in many traditional mediums, I faced a unique challenge. I always painted highly expressive paintings, and I wanted to bring the same expressiveness and spontaneity in my digital paintings. I did not want the typical 'plasticky' look for my digital paintings.


In this book, you will not only learn the immense possibilities offered to us by digital painting software in general and Procreate in particular, but also to paint in a loose and expressive manner. The goal is to paint intriguing, catchy artworks that the viewers will love to watch again and again.

-Methods I employ to paint expressively.
