Procreate 4.3 Commission: OUI
Introducing the Text Tool
Pattern Illustration, Lettering, Editorial
For their third concurrent major app update, Procreate commissioned me to create original artwork in order to introduce their customers to the brand new Text Tool - which allows users to import fonts and craft typographic compositions within the app with ease.
My artwork was featured in the product launch and in promotional materials for the update.
Incorporate Text into a composition in your unique style.
Theme: Parisian, full color
I chose a Gallic rooster (le coq gaulois) as my subject matter, and surrounded him with botanical elements that are all native to or prized in France.
I began with a simple rooster outline before refining linework and layering color into the composition.
Canvas Size: 4000 x 4000
30 hours of illustration
Typeface: Boutique-Engraved, all-caps
The Text tool is an undoubtedly cool feature.
For this drawing, I created the woven-type illusion by keeping some illustrated elements on higher layers than others. Ultimately, no matter what the text says, the illustration will appear to weave and overlap it.
