Rank #7: 56: Combing Analogue and Digital Art in Procreate with Brooke Glaser

Podcast cover
Read more

A talk about combining analogue and digital art, using the Procreate app, with Brooke Glaser.

Have you ever scanned your analog artwork, only to be disappointed because the textures and imperfections that made it special have disappeared or been smoothed out?

Have you tried to create textured backgrounds, like watercolours, with software? This is particularly true for hand lettering imported to vector apps, which tend to make everything look the same.

Brooke is an illustrator, surface designer, and art teacher. She tells us how particularly the Procreate app has changed the way she creates illustrations, and compares it to the “olden days“ using Photoshop.

Support Art Supply Posse and get bonus episodes

Procreate is currently only available for the iPad, where it has become the most popular drawing application among professionals. It’s so affordable though at $10 currently that anyone who can afford an iPad can also afford the app. Photoshop costs more than that per month.

Brooke has several classes, currently on Skillshare. She has an excellent beginners introduction to Procreate, and a class showing how to combine analogue with digital art in Procreate.

Rank #20: 74: Learn Fountain Pen Ink Art with Nick Stewart

Podcast cover
Read more

Nick Stewart returns to discuss his course on using fountain pen ink as a unique art medium. Nick's project pushes the boundaries in which fountain pen ink is used in art. Away from a pure sketching ink, to an art medium akin to paint, with unique properties such as shading, sheening and reaction to bleach.

Nick first talked about this project on episode 51 of Art Supply Posse. Since then, Nick has released a course on Udemy where he teaches his techniques for creating art using the unique properties of fountain pen inks and bleach.
