Monochrome Digital Alcohol Ink

Today, I wanted to show you how to make a monochrome alcohol ink piece in Procreate. Mostly monochrome, I should say – I’ll be adding gold accents at the end. It’s a fun challenge to try and use only one color for an abstract piece, because it really forces you to focus on texture and composition. In the end, I also decided to change the color a bit and add some adjustments outside of Procreate using the iPad photos app, which is one of my favorite “hacks.”

I will show this process using my Amazing Alcohol Ink brushes for Procreate – though you could try this same concept using a number of different brushes and techniques that you have on hand – texture variation is the key.

You can watch the tutorial by clicking the video link below, and you will also find written instructions and other details in the video description.

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
