children's book character sketch

Procreate Tip

I was hired to do a follow up illustration about 2 years after I did the first one. Guess what?  I could not figure out how I got the effects in the first illustration — eventually it was good enough, but now I always keep a separate layer that notes any special brushes (in Photoshop and Procreate). Duh.

I thought Old Beach brush was perfect for this character sketch of Aunt Emelda, who is knitting booties for the Girl with Big Feet.
