Aurora Borealis with Motion Blur in Procreate

In today’s tutorial, we create an Aurora Borealis piece using the Motion Blur tool with my Galaxy and Winter Magic Brush sets. In keeping with last week’s theme, we are pairing another standard Procreate tool with my brushes. Incorporating these tools is an area of exploration for me, and I am enjoying adding to the repertoire of artistic resources at my disposal! I strongly feel that a willingness to try new things is important for any artist, so I am always doing my best to stay open. The Motion Blur tool is an easy way to add a gauzy, dreamy effect to your piece – perfect for the Northern Lights! 

You can follow this tutorial using my brushes as I do in the video, or you are very welcome to experiment with any other brushes you have. How do you envision your piece?

I would love to see what you come up with! You’re very welcome to tag me on Instagram @alainajensen, use #alainajensenbrushes or share your work in our free facebook group
