Designing with Procreate

Have you heard of Procreate? It’s a digital design app for creative professionals, made exclusively for the iPad. Unlike other design software which requires a monthly fee (such as Adobe Creative Cloud), Procreate is reasonably priced at $9.99 and once you download it, there are no monthly fees!

I’m just starting to explore this app and all that it can do. So far I’ve learned how to create a custom color palette, how different brushes work and how to draw with the Apple Pencil. Drawing with a digital stylus definitely takes practice and getting used to compared to sketching with a traditional HB pencil.

I’m excited to learn digital illustration with this app…and like with any new creative skill, it requires lots of practice and patience!

In addition to exploring on my own, I learned some basic Procreate skills from this Skillshare course:Drawing in Procreate! Learning the Basics by Lettie Blue.

Once I feel more comfortable with the basics, I’m eager to learn how to create repeating patterns. I’ll be visiting these classes soon: Creating Repeat Patterns on your iPad in Procreate by Babs Reh and Create Seamless Patterns on your iPad in Procreate by Liz Kohler Brown.
