By the Laying on of Hands
Painted in Procreate Pocket, textured in Photoshop.

I painted this one in Procreate Pocket (as I did with For Time and All Eternity), pulling it into Photoshop for upscaling and texturing afterwards, and I think I really like this new workflow. It’s more portable, for one. The smoothness of the UI in Procreate is also a huge win. The downside is I’m working on a relatively small screen, but it’s honestly not that bad.

The Soul’s Sincere Desire

“The Soul’s Sincere Desire.” Painted in Photoshop.

I wasn’t really happy with my execution of A Child’s Prayer, so I decided to try again with a different process, this time using a single layer and a single oil brush (Kyle Webster’s “Sargent 2017”), with the brush size kept small and with very limited undos. (Disclaimer: I did add a couple final texture layers at the end.)

I loved it. It was much more like analog painting than my normal process is, and the final result turned out much closer to the aesthetic I’ve been aiming for the whole time with these minimalist religious pieces.

Also, painting all those dots took forever.
