Digital Illustration using the iPad and Photoshop

Johnny B recently started to test and use the Procreate app on the iPad. He decided to draw two brothers he had taken photos of and see what he could accomplish using the new app.  The digital pencil and airbrush tool were used to create the drawings below.  He later used Photoshop to adjust the artwork, add a title treatment, and paper texture. Work time on the drawing of Liam was 6 hours, and Connor was 4 hours. A nice feature of the Procreate app is it records time worked on each piece of artwork and recorded the entire process as a time-lapse, allowing the viewer to see how the elements came together.
