You all know that practice makes perfect. One artist to share her secrets is Netherlands-based Floortjes, who creates hyperrealistic digital paintings.
Using a drawing tablet, iPad, and mix of programs including Procreate and Photoshop, Floortjes often sets herself time restrictive challenges. Whether speedily sketching her subjects in just a matter of seconds, or revisiting drawings to slowly build up detail, the talented artist illustrates that it takes time to perfect your craft.
She also posts simple, instructive illustrations to teach her followers how to draw different objects. From lifelike hair, eyes, and lips, to realistic feathers, flowers, and jewels
Each piece starts with a rough sketch and is built up with base colors, shadows, highlights, and refined details as a finishing touch. However, Floortjes reveals that for her, it all comes down to discipline. “The way to improve your art is to practice, work hard and be determined.”
