Botanical Illustrations: Written Tutorial
  • Open your Procreate app, create a new canvas, and start by sketching out circles for your hibiscus flower placement.
  • On a new layer, sketch out your hibiscus flowers.
  • Turn down the opacity on your hibiscus flowers layer and create a new layer to sketch out your leaves.
  • Turn down the opacity on your leaves layer, create a new layer using the Fancy Finesse Brush draw and color in your leaves.
  • Create another layer and draw and color in your hibiscus flowers.
  • Turn off your sketched out layers.
  • Add a new layer above your hibiscus flowers layer, click on clipping mask, and use your Artist Crayon Brush with a different color to add texture.
  • Repeat above step with your leaves layer.
  • Create another layer above your leaves clipping mask layer and also turn on the clipping mask. Go back to your 6B Pencil Brush and add leaf veins with a new color.
  • Turn your sketched out hibiscus flower layer back on, add a new layer above the hibiscus flower clipping mask, change back to your 6B Pencil Brush, and draw in details for your hibiscus petals.
  • Add a new layer for your stamens, select the new color, and draw them in.
  • For more texture around your leaves and flowers click on the eraser tool and use the 6B Pencil Brush to gently erase the lines around these items.
  • Add a new layer and draw a variety of sizes of dots in and around your botanical illustrations.
  • On a new layer draw an oval over your entire illustration. Erase all the dots that fall outside of the oval.
  • Delete your sketching layers.
  • Turn on the Drawing Grid (for this next step).
  • Select all your layers, click on the Select tool, and then resize your illustration to better accommodate the space.
  • All done!
