Recipe Illustrations on Your iPad in Procreate + 26 Free Procreate Brushes

Recipe Illustrations on Your iPad in Procreate + 26 Free Procreate Brushes

I absolutely love creating recipe illustrations for family recipes (and my own personal favorites)!  In my newest class, I’ll show you how to create recipe illustrations on your iPad in Procreate.  I’ll show you three different illustration styles, so you can explore which one works best for your personal style.

When you take this class, you’ll get all of the brushes and textures I use to create my recipe illustrations as free downloads.  The set of 27 brushes includes 14 stamps, 8 textures, and 5 drawing tools.

First we’ll look at a simple way to turn a recipe title into a playful illustration with overlapping textures, layers of color, and text.  I’ll show you the easy steps to create your own texture brushes from photographs.  Then we’ll look at some quick ways to turn an object into an illustration, and how to make beautiful text even if you don’t feel confident with your hand lettering skills.

Next we’ll turn a drink recipe into a sleek illustration using stamps, tracing, and hand drawn elements.  I’ll show you some easy ways to work from real ingredients to create your own custom stamps, tracings, and drawings.

I’ll show you an easy way to create a detailed illustration from a photograph and we’ll look at ways to use repeated elements to fill the spaces around a recipe and instructions.

The amazing thing about this process is you can turn any recipe into a beautiful illustration in a few easy steps.  You can use the recipes for your business or blog, or print them out as gifts for friends and family. All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
