My name is Yuliya Pieletskaya and I’m a Chicago-based illustrator. I draw animals on my iPad in the Procreate app with an iPencil. And here I would like to show you a few examples.

A lot of people ask how I get a watercolor/gouache look to my digital drawings and it all comes down to the brushes I use. I also apply a paper texture to my canvas in ‘multiply’ mode. I have a few YouTube videos to show you how to do this!

Check out my artwork and I hope you’ll enjoy!
