The Paper Store x Ray of Light
My favorite drawing app for iPad, Paper by WeTransfer, has entered a new frontier with The Paper Store. I am so excited to be a part of the launch. Watch the video below to see what the store is all about:
You can read more about the store here on Medium, but essentially I've created a collection of content for the store exclusive to the Paper app. We're talking all-new tutorials, activities, planner templates... all available to use right within the Paper app. Below, you can tour the collection. Paper is free to download on the App Store, so be sure to check it out.
Here at Ray of Light Design, we've shared quite a few flower tutorials.
But what if I told you there was a simple, mathematical method that could unlock millions of flower doodling possibilities? A method you could memorize, so you could draw tons of cute flowers from off the top of your head? A method anyone could learn?
Well, it's here! In the Science of Doodling Flowers, you'll learn a step-by-step approach to creating floral elements. You'll start with petal shapes, and move through learning petal layouts, layering, and drawing leaves and centers.

2. Cacti & Succulents
Remember this cacti tutorial? Well, friends, now we've got a whole journal jam packed with cacti tutorials! It's time to become an expert.
Learn to shade cacti, add spines, and doodle desert flowers. From saguaros and prickly pears to moon cacti and golden barrels, you'll be drawing the desert in no time!
Explore step-by-step tutorials to drawing all of your favorite cacti and succulents, as well as practice pages to hone your newfound skills. Fill up desert landscapes with your cacti creations. This journal is great for artists of all skill levels!
A major focus of Ray of Light Design over the years has been on Hand Lettering. We have an entire page dedicated to it.
In this journal, you'll get an in-depth look at techniques for building block letters in the Paper app. We start with basic block letters, and then dive into adding effects, including inlines, shadows, and three-dimensions. You'll get to finish a few alphabets along the way, and eventually be challenged to invent your own lettering style. You'll also see how useful the Paper interface can be for hand lettering.

4. Textures & Patterns
How can you take a simple illustration to the next level? Here's how: textures.
In this journal, we'll walk you through six different textures and patterns that will turn the most basic drawings into intricate masterpieces. We start with easy patterns that add just a bit of oomph, and then move on to advanced techniques that will add a lot of pizazz to your illustrations.
After each tutorial page, you'll be tasked with adding textures to several incomplete illustrations. See the page transform before your eyes!
