Tutorial: Adding Texture to a Vector Drawing Using Picgrunger and Sketchbook Pro

This is a portrait of Luli from Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. In this portrait I added texture to my Inkpad vector drawing using the PicGrunger app. I used two different textures to get an aged, worn look to the portrait.

One texture using PicGrunger app


Second texture using PicGrunger app


I used the layers function in Sketchbook Pro on my iPad to erase areas that had too much “grunge”, especially on the face. I set the layers at different transparencies also to decrease the strength of the textures.
