Procreate Portrait Academy
- Rated 4.8 by 4000+ students

Do you give up when it comes to drawing portraits? I was the same, until I learned simple tricks to draw people that every beginner can master!

Procreate Portrait Academy

by Freya Kotchakorn

Want to learn how to draw your kids, grandkids, parents, friends, your partner … or even a celebrity? Click the button below to enroll in my Procreate Portrait Academy course with -64% OFF and learn how to draw portraits in your own style as if you’ve been doing them forever!

Draw portraits in Procreate that actually look like the people you’re drawing.

With this carefully laid out approach to mastering portraits, you’ll learn to draw anyone and capture exactly how they look like. And I’ll give you my permission to gloat for a while whenever you showcase your work to your “models”! 🙈

The thing with drawing portraits is that you probably won’t master the technique just by trial and error. Plus, you’ll waste a lot of time that you could spend actually drawing amazing portraits.

The quickest way to master portraits is by understanding the tracing and drafting formula. In Procreate Portrait Academy we’ll start with the basics of tracing and learn the fundamentals of drafting before moving on to applying both to actual portrait drawing.

You’ll learn to recognize and perfectly capture the person’s distinguishing features, while learning how to avoid the most common mistakes of drawing portraits. And the best thing - you'll never be afraid of showing people your portraits again!

Instead of trying to “sell” you a course by showcasing my work, I’d rather show you what you’ll be able to do after 20 hours of in-depth lectures. Take a look at some of the recent paintings from Procreate Portrait Academy students:

"Handing in the homework. Please advise me if there’s any needs of improvement. I’m still not confident with how I picked the color for light and shadow, I’m not sure if it’s too dark or too bright."

"Handing in the homework. I stuck with the light stage quite a while, I painted and removed over and over until I was satisfied."
Gail Gailvalin, Bangkok
"Here’s my cherries teacher Freya. I’ve learned a lot about how to use each brush type in each situation in this chapter. Please comment on my work."

Nipaporn Srisawang, Bangkok
"Handing in the homework. Anywhere I need to improve? I feel like my strokes aren’t fine enough, any suggestion?"
Panporn Liewtiwong, Bangkok
"Handing in the homework. I love the technique that helps shorten the time when creating pollen, very genius!"

Pornpan Srithunyarat, Bangkok

Nisa Sritalar, Bangkok
"Handing in the homework to teacher Freya. I did work so hard for this rose. Please suggest if I need to put more shadow? I’m not confident when I have to put darker color."
Porntip Kamsawad, Bangkok
"Here is my Monstera, handing in the homework. I tried leaving some paint strokes but not sure if they are beautiful? Please suggest."

An in-depth course that both beginners and established illustrators can benefit from

One of the best ways to gain knowledge is to learn from your mistakes. In my 15 years as a professional digital artist, I have made nearly every mistake in the book. Especially when I first started painting digital portraits. 

Now I want to help you speed up the learning process by avoiding said mistakes, while still getting the key takeaways that you would get when encountering your own mistakes. Just much quicker and less stressful!

We will learn how to draw the distinguishing features of a person’s face that set people apart from each other and make you recognize a person. We’ll cover male and female portraits ranging from the young generation of girls and boys to the older generations of grandmas and grandpas.

The course is divided into 9 modules, containing a total of 40 lectures AND a bonus module with three bonus lectures. That way we can focus on each part and not rush any of the important lectures as well as take our time to put the knowledge to the test and draw your own portraits.

Learn the same portrait drawing technique that I use to create illustrations for brands like Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co. and Sephora!

In my fifteen years of working as a professional illustrator I’ve acquired quite a few portrait drawing tricks that elevated my art and helped me land some of the biggest brands in their industries as my clients. 

Through a long process of learning, I’ve taught myself the rights and wrongs of drawing portraits. I’ve found a way that enables me to draw anyone without much hassle. I’ve actually become so proficient at it that I’m now teaching hundreds of other aspiring artists, such as yourself, and speaking at events in Apple stores. And I know exactly what it takes to go from beginner to Pro level artist. 

Filled with a bunch of “insider” knowledge, this course will sky-rocket your portrait skills. It doesn’t matter if you’re a well-established artist or just a beginner wanting to learn how to draw portraits.

With Procreate, you can work MUCH faster, more detailed … and affordable!

A set of decent brushes, watercolors, and some quality paper can set you back $200 or even more. Add a high-detail scanner and a quality computer with software capable of precisely die cutting your “analog” work … And before you know it, you’ve spent way over $1000 before you even started painting. 

And what’s even worse … brushes get worn-out and watercolors don’t come in endless supplies. So every once in a while, you have to splurge out another couple $100 just to be able to paint again. In Procreate, everything is just a few clicks away. 

When I did my paintings and illustrations by hand, I always had to have a dedicated working space large enough to take up half of my room. Since I started using Procreate, all I need is my iPad and an Apple Pencil. 

With no painting accessories, no computer, no separate drawing pad and no scanner, you can work anywhere you want to. Time spent commuting on public transport could instead be spent working on your art. Fancy a day at the park? Bring your iPad and squeeze in some painting.

The level of detail Procreate offers in insane - highlights will set your art apart from the others. 
The thing I love the most about Procreate is being able to paint wherever, whenever.

Your ultimate guide to mastering digital portrait illustration

It doesn't matter if you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned illustrator. We’ll start slowly with the basics and move onto more complex principles. You’ll not only learn how to follow the tutorial, but also unlock a whole new way of getting the image you see in your head onto a piece of paper … or rather your iPad’s screen. 

To achieve that, we will not only deep-dive into details like which brushes to use and when, you’ll also master various portrait techniques, understand the principles of shading and light and get to know the Procreate app.

With over 20 hours of in-depth video content, the Procreate Portrait Academy is on average 7 TIMES longer than most of the other courses. In over 40 lessons, you will:

  • Learn how to use the main tools and features for drawing portraits
  • Learn how to select appropriate brushes
  • Practice the stroke pressure and line tracing
  • Learn about light and shading
  • Learn how to draw various parts of the face
  • Learn how to draw younger, middle-aged and older male, and female portraits
  • Uncover tips and tricks you only stumble upon after using Procreate for a long time 
  • Learn how to sell your art
  • Learn how to do price your commissions
  • Learn how to create your portfolio to land the best clients
  • Learn how to import files and export final results

Each video lecture is equipped with timestamps marking the most important chapters. Missed something? No rewinding, no jumping up and down the timeline - just click on a checkpoint in the lesson you want to revise.

All theory and no drawing makes you … well, not a good illustrator

Over the course of my professional career, I’ve realized over and over again that the saying “practice makes perfect” couldn’t be more true. Imagine learning to swim … in your living room. Once you hit the water, you’d probably drown within minutes.

And since painting of any kind demands certain training of your muscle memory to master the various painting techniques, one thing is more than obvious: more practice equals faster improvement. There’s also no better way to really grasp the theory and put your new-found knowledge to use than actually drawing.

That’s why I added 30 extensive follow-along exercises that demand utilizing everything you’ve learned so far. And hey, besides the 30 opportunities to hone your skills, you also get a whopping 30 pieces of your own original artwork, which you can showcase in your portfolio before even starting your portrait painting adventure.

You’ll never feel lost or out of place

Before creating this course, I ran an extensive survey. I asked over 1000 digital art students to list the biggest pain points they experienced when trying out other portrait courses out there. 

“The lecturer is speaking too fast,” “the course is not structured enough,” “just talking and no practice,” “too many similar exercises,” “no emphasis on different facial features” were some of the most common answers.

I did my best to structure the Portrait Academy in a way that it would cover everything you need, while avoiding the most common setbacks you would experience following other courses. 

This is why you'll start by building a strong foundation and slowly progress to more advanced techniques. You’ll also be able to put your knowledge to the test in 30 carefully picked exercises.

If you’re like me, you find it extremely overwhelming when the instructor rushes, leaving you feeling lost and frustrated. In my course, the narration is calm and slow-paced, allowing you to follow without hitting the pause button after every sentence. However, should you feel the need to use some extra time, you can pause the video or replay the checkpoint as you please.
