Anime Background in Procreate

—- Kana’s website new link: —-

A small (or maybe not so small as it took probably 20h to complete) experiment in painting using iPad Pro and the Procreate app. I tried to paint an anime-like background inspired by the “Ponyo” hand-painted poster colors style.

This picture is based on some photos we took with Kana during our trip to Kanazawa. I really liked the long stairs and the empty beer bottle crates in the foreground and wanted to paint it someday.

You can see how this picture was made on two YouTube live streams:

Also, the Procreate brushes I used to create this picture are available on my Gumroad account here:
