First you want to buy Sketchbook Pro from the App Store. Unless you have it already. I can't see the price since I bought it but it's at least $5 and they have sales.
Like with most of my tutorials I will be using Procreate too.
I start in Procreate and create a self portrait. For an in depth look at my process please check out my other tutorials.
Next I launch Sketchbook Pro and start working a new design.
The background is blended after the copic marker is used to put in colors. Everything is on a separate layer.
I sketch the Twitter bird in red 2B pencil and go over it in white on a new top layer.
There's the finished design.
Here's a look without the UI.
Merge your layers and press and hold down on the singular layer.
Now I relaunch Procreate.
I press down on my layer in Procreate to bring in the file from Sketchbook.
There it is in Procreate now. I can transform it by pinching or using the controls on the sidebar. I brought in a lot of app designs using this method. Let's take a look...
Messages. Keep in mind I did a lot more but I wanted to show the most popular.
Now my portrait is done and I can move back to Sketchbook Pro for the final step. First I merge all of my layers and press and hold until I see copy.
I go back into Sketchbook and open a new document.
I complete my design work before I even bring in the Procreate copy. This is for my business card btw. The copy goes on the bottom layer. I press and hold and hit paste.
Here's a close up of the design before I get into the next part.
And here's my finished design! I save but leave the layers separate just in case I need to make changes later. Saving a copy never hurts either.
I hope you enjoyed the guide! Check me out on http://about.me/raheemnelson
