This weekend I finished that romantic sketch I did of Lorelai and Io after their (hopefully) romantic weekend.
First I made the heart-shaped art-deco frame using elements I found online. I checked it against the coloured sketch to make sure it was the right proportions, as you can see above. On the frame, I added a glow and a metallic gradient to make the different pieces I used coherent.
I wanted to keep the style very 1920’s and simple. This is the ink.
Then I coloured in the outline.
You may remember from the drawing I did of Rory as a Vegas showgirl that Procreate has some really fun sparkly brushes. I thought this portrait could use a little sparkle.
After the sparkle was added, I took it to Photoshop and added the red background.
I decided not to use my regular fur brushes, because I wasn’t necessarily going for realism on this drawing. I left the colouration flat instead.
I then added a pink glow around the happy couple, and applied the oil paint filter.
I’m not 100% happy with it…but I do like it.
As always, I saved the video Procreate saves. I also discovered that it can make a gif of your drawing. I am not sure what I’m going to do with that, but it’ll be a fun thing to play with in the future.
