"Penguin" Finish

Ako LambleWritten by Ako Lamble

Hi Everyone,

I would love to share another iPad Art I’ve created recently. If you think “Wow that’s an amazing painting, wish I could paint like that!”, well, believe or not, you can do it much easier than you think. I will show you how I did it … my little trick.


I love watching some good YouTube videos and the one below is one of them. Enjoy watching it first (2minutes11sec long).

then I stopped the video at the point of < 1’10” > which is this;
"Penguin" YouTube Screen


Now you know where the penguin came from, don’t you? Then I took a screenshot of it (if you don’t know how, watch the how to video)


I imported the penguin image into Procreate app, used the smudge tool to smudge (or you can say paint) over the photograph. As you see the original photo was the landscape shape but I made it the portrait shape by dragging the colour off the top and bottom part towards the edge of the screen.

To extend the blue sky part is easy, but you need to actually draw/paint the extra rocks on the bottom part.

"Penguin" before Snapseed app


I imported the image into Snapseed app and changed its tone. As you see, it created the strong contrast and bright colours. I didn’t mind that some of the rocks were darkened on the process to the point of so black because it’s a good place to sign.

I did a little touch up on the sky, then signed. There you are, it’s finished. That’s how I did it. Isn’t that incredibly easy?
