Learn how to make digital mosaics (aka “fauxsaics”) on the iPad Pro with Procreate. This is an incredibly fun illustration technique that has soared in popularity in recent years – and for good reason. Not only are fauxsaics really fun to make, but the end result is extremely eye-catching and rewarding.
You don't have to be a lettering artist to take this class, but if you are, you will love turning your hand-lettered design into mosaic art. If you're not a lettering artist, don't worry because I also show you how to make a design using a digital font.
This class is for students who already have some experience with Procreate for iPad Pro. If you need to learn the ropes first, start with my comprehensive beginner's class: Procreate for Absolute Beginners. You do not need to be a lettering artist to take this class. If you are, you will enjoy incorporating your lettering into the design. If you're not, I show you how to make art based on fonts.
I've included my very own Procreate Mosaic Brush Pack for free to students in this class. ("Mollys_Mosaic_Brushes.brushset"). There are 50 brushes for tile patterns, drawing tiles, grout, and textures. There is also a PDF showing samples of each brush which is a helpful reference while you work. All these are available to students as free downloads in the "Projects & Resources" section.

In this class I create a project using my own hand lettering font, Honeydew. You can purchase it here, if you'd like, however it is not a requirement for the class.
