Blackness is a tutorial book on digital painting using the popular drawing application: Procreate. An embedded memoir and a 2023 - 2021 gallery of Nyasia's artwork are included. It is written, illustrated, and designed by Black artist Tionna Nyasia Watson. In this book, there are tips and tutorials on how to take full advantage of Procreate. This book also includes techniques discovered that help create her still-life portraits of black women, and explanations about why she approaches her art the way she does when painting. The tutorials included are about drawing hair, rendering textured skin, and blending skin tones. She also includes sections on clothing texture, and paper texture, and uses backgrounds as a bonus. Nyasia shares her journey in finding her style of art through the elements of design: texture and detail, and her medium of choice, the iPad application Procreate. This exploration began when she was a child. Her love for art was heavily influenced by her family, who, she mentions, have impacted her interest in using detail as a weapon of affirmation for women and artistic identity, and not just seeing it as an element of creativity. This book is a glimpse into her future and past; she wants you to create beautiful artwork and discover who you are the same way she has.
