Anniko: Procreate Speedpaint video

Procreate Speedpaint Video

Recently I was going though my older illustrations and stumbled upon one in particular that I really liked at the time. I liked the color palette in it and the overall idea of the art piece. I created that illustration back in 2015. Looking at it I wondered how I would draw an image like that today. What would I change, how I would approach the creative process.

I took the older version of my own illustration as a reference and start redrawing it. Unlike the original artwork which I created on PC with Photoshop and Illustrator, the new one I made using Procreate app on iPad. 

The working process itself and the result turned out to be pretty interesting and rewarding. Through this experience I did gain some useful insights. 

  • First of all, I realized that my technique changed quite a bit over these couple of years. Of course, I was using different drawing apps, however the approach, the order and the way I work on details is not as it used to be.
  • Second, I come to realize that such an exercise is pretty useful for pointing out mistakes any artist does while working on the art.
  • Third, by doing such reworks it’s way easier to track your own progress as an artist. To see how your style evolves.

This is the original illustration dating back 2015:

And this is the new illustration I made a few days ago using the older one as a reference:
