Create simple banana leaves in Procreate
Today’s tutorial is going to be a Procreate tutorial, where we will learn how to create Banana leaves in Procreate.
You might have seen people draw these amazing leaves in procreate which create an illusion of being layered one above the other. Let me tell you something, this is actually super easy to create!
We will first be drawing these simple Banana leaves using a procreate default Brush called Mercury, then we will apply shadows using an airbrush (which we will modify slightly to get the effects we need). Then we will talk about how to add texture and enhance/adjust colors to achieve that almost-real-looking banana leaves!
