How to Draw a Portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Procreate

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day we're teaching you how to draw a Procreate portrait of the leader and community organizer. 

Illustrator Brad Woodard of Brave the Woods has not only created this illustration, but he’s created a tutorial to show you how to make it, too. 

In this tutorial you'll learn:

  • How to use source material to make your portrait realistic. 
  • How to choose the best brushes for portrait painting in Procreate.
  • Brad's best tips for digital illustration — whether you're a beginner or experienced illustrator.

We recommend using this Procreate brush pack created with Brad Woodard for this illustration.

This is a grand idea! Great tut!
I believe that, if we share the dialogues of tolerance, others will, eventually, be more accepting!
Blessings and Thank you!!!
