Portrait Commission

This is the final portrait commission I’d been working on. It was painted from reference photos, provided by the commissioner, using Procreate.  

I use the same process for acrylic or digital paintings. I do a detailed drawing and value study first. Then, I paint in the base colors and work from thin to thick.

Quick Tips For Drawing Hands

I’ve been working on a digital portrait commission that includes some hand drawing. It made me think a quick tip tutorial may be helpful to anyone who struggles with drawing hands. If you like this and would like to see more, or if you would like to know how to draw something specific, please let me know and I may do a tutorial or tip sheet on it in the future.

Lehua Timelapse Video

If you’re interested to see how I work from initial sketch to final illustration, this video shows that as a time-lapse. This was all created using Procreate on an iPad Pro. For more videos, please check out my Youtube Channel.

Time lapse video from sketch to completion using Procreate. I apologize for the flashing appearance in places. I was checking it on different garment colors to see how it reads and because it is time lapsed it showed every one as a flash of color.
