  9. Featured Illustration: Unique Jones

    Date 12 Feb 2016
    With every portrait I try to push myself harder to improve my craft and take risks. Usually in Procreate I paint with a tool called the Flat Brush. Something about this particular portrait inspired me to try an imported tool called the Dry Brush. It gives an oil on canvas…
