Draw a Marble Inlay Bird in Procreate using a Photo

I have lived in Europe for much of my adult life, so I have been to a lot of castles! The beautiful, inlayed details I have observed on tables and artifacts within the stunning castles served as the inspiration for this project. Outlining and filling in the shapes is positively therapeutic, and I can’t even explain how satisfying it is to christen each line with gold glittery goodness as a finishing touch – you’ll just have to experience it for yourself!

Made using iPad Pro 2020 in the Procreate app with Apple Pencil, using brushes from my Stone & Marble and Gold Rush brush sets. You are very welcome to follow the tutorial with any textured or patterned brushes you have.
