Welcome! In today's tutorial we are going to draw a Eustoma flower using the premium brushes from the Effortless Flower Brush set. Please download the tutorial files before we begin. You'll find the tutorial PDF for offline viewing as well as the color palette used in this project. If you're ready, let's begin.
To recreate this flower, we are going to use five brushes from the Effortless Brush Set. Namely, Petal 20 (L and R), Pollen 3, Petal Shadow brush, and Leaf 19. Make sure that your Dynamic Scaling is turned on when you're using this brush set, you can find this under Actions > Preferences.
Step 1: Let's start with a 3000 x 3000-pixel canvas at 300 DPI. Set the primary (cream) and secondary (violet) colors. Add a layer and then using the Petal 20 R, draw in a clockwise motion. The more pressure you use the more pronounced the primary color will be. Add a bit of green in the middle using the Petal Shadow Brush.
Step 2: Add another layer underneath and this time change the primary color to white. Add a petal shadow around areas where the first petals would normally cast soft shadows.
Step 3: Add another layer underneath, change the colors again, and this time add a third layer of petals in a counter-clockwise motion. Again, add a petal shadow around areas where the first petals would normally cast soft shadows.
Step 4: Then on top of all the layers, add the yellow pollen using the Pollen 3 brush. Add a layer below all the petals for the leaves. Use Leaf 19.
There you have it! We've just completed this Eustoma tutorial using just a handful of brushes from the Effortless Flower Brush Set. Please tag me on Instagram if you post your finished version. I would love to reshare it on my Stories.
