How to Create Adorable Digital Illustrations with Kimura Ansai and ProCreate

If you're an aspiring digital illustrator looking to improve your skillset, then you're in luck! This tutorial will show you how to create cute and eye-catching illustrations with the help of Kimura Ansai and ProCreate.

Getting Started

First things first, you need to have ProCreate installed on your device. Once you have that ready, start by familiarizing yourself with the app's interface and tools. Get a feel for the different brushes, layers, and other features that you'll be using throughout the tutorial.

Designing Your Worldview

Before you start drawing, it's important to come up with a concept or "worldview" for your illustration. This will help you create a cohesive and visually appealing piece. To do this, think about the mood or tone you want to convey, the motifs or symbols you want to incorporate, and any other design elements that will tie everything together.

Drawing Characters and Backgrounds

Once you have your worldview in mind, it's time to start drawing! Kimura Ansai recommends starting with the character first, as they will be the focal point of your illustration. Use the brush tool to sketch out the basic shape and form of your character, then refine it with details and shading.

Next, move on to the background. Again, consider your worldview and what kind of setting would suit your character. Use layers to separate the character from the background and add depth and dimension to your illustration.

Adding the Finishing Touches

With your characters and backgrounds complete, it's time to add any finishing touches or special effects. This could include additional details like textures or patterns, lighting and shadowing effects, or even animated elements if you're feeling adventurous!
