Happy last Tuesday of 2020! We’re finishing up this year’s episodes of my Procreate holiday greeting series today with a New Year’s greeting!
In the spirit of wishing 2020 farewell for good, I thought it’d be fun to create a little mistletoe greeting to send it off 😉
In the tutorial, we’ll first look at a reference photo of mistletoe pulled from my pinterest board, then we’ll sketch out our full layout. We’ll fully freehand our mistletoe based on what we saw in our reference image, then add in a little hand lettering with some dotted swirls as a finishing touch. We’re using my paid set of watercolor illustration brushes for this (linked above), as well as my free dotted brush and the color palette is free, as always. Grab the free color palette and brushes used above to get started!
