Day 194 Cat Practice

This little project is a practice using the updates to ProCreate following the introduction to the new tools in Brooke Glaser’s Skillshare class. [Get two months free here].

I created a quick sketch and fill of this little cat in the garden.

For the bushes in the background, I drew in the stems and then added the leaves and color with the new color fill in the selector. I guess it doesn’t work on the freehand select— to just select areas and fill. I tried that with the cat stripes and it did not work that way.

I was able to apply the “chromatic aberration” on the cat layer, using displace, blur, and transparency.  Gave it a bit of edge color shade/highlight. I thought it added a bit of fun with just a bit of multiple colors. It will take a bit of practice to get the fit for the image or layer.

For the leaves I first applied “noise” using clouds [or billows]. I chose the lightning sign and selected “multi” to get all the colors, and applied a larger scale. Then I repeated the “chromatic aberration,” but lowered the transparency so it just brightened up the colors of the “noise.”

The background is simply one layer with different shades of the theme color, then applied the usual Gaussian blur to it.

Behind the cat I added a white feathered blur shape.

These new tips will take a while to learn!

Thanks, Brooke, for a great start for us.
