During this Procreate tutorial we’ll be painting a gorgeous black dog portrait. I love bringing animals to life on canvas, so I can’t wait to walk you through every step of this process.
I designed this tutorial keeping in mind both beginners and seasoned artists. You’ll not only learn to paint a dog but also understand the nuances of capturing the essence of black fur, the interplay of light and shadow, and the importance of patience and observation in digital painting.
