Music is often used as a means to express how we feel without the use of words. Illustrator Ataul takes this idea a step even further by capturing the essence of a song and representing it visually. Discover how to pay tribute to your idols by creating illustrations as harmonic as your favorite tune and filling them with color, texture, and shape in Procreate.

In this course, learn how to illustrate with Procreate using basic drawing concepts like geometry, anatomy, lighting, and color. Using your favorite artist or band as inspiration, see how to create a truly eye-catching composition. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to use Procreate like a pro and use it for your next big project.
