Birdie Enhanced

birdie ink sketch - with enhancements

I recently posted a few digital sketches that I made using Procreate. Sharon Mann at Make Art…Magic Happens, mentioned that she likes to import her artwork into Procreate and enhance it with cool effects. I knew I just had to give that a try.  I’m always inspired by Sharon’s beautiful and creative artwork. 💗

Happy Thursday, friends! 😊

I decided that a recent sketch of my birdie in a teacup would be fun to play with.

My original ink sketch before importing it into Procreate.

and then after a few enhancements…

New tail feathers and a sweet little hair accessory added.

Lots of happy color and a fun background added as well.

Wow, what a difference that makes!

Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement, Sharon!  I’m having so much fun learning and playing with Procreate.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.  Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

    1. You’re very welcome my friend!! 💞 I’m always inspired by your beautiful work. Thank you for the tips and encouragement.
      Yes, the layers are so fun. I made 3 different backgrounds for birdie in different layers and was able to select my favorite and toss out the others. 😊

  1. Even without the colour, the hair accessory and tail feathers make a huge difference – it would be interesting to see how much those on their own would enliven the original ink sketch. The finished artwork with the extra embellishments and colour is very cute and pretty indeed – makes me smile when I look at it 🙂
