About the course

From the moment Steve Jobs walked on stage and unveiled the iPad I’ve wanted to draw on one. It took a couple years for the hardware and software to catch up but now the iPad a fantastic little art studio you can easily take anywhere. 

  • I believe it’s best to learn through examples. here is what we will be doing in this course:
  • We will be going over the tools
  • After going over the tools we will be using them to draw to reinforce how they work
  • The drawing sessions are simple and easy to follow, anyone can do them
  • We will go through how simple comic strips are made step by stem from drawing panels to pencils to inks to colors and backgrounds
  • We will be learning all the shortcuts and options associated with each and every tool.
  • The final project will take all the skills we’ve learned and combining them into one final painting

Why Procreate? The best drawing app for he iPad is Procreate. procreate has been listed in the iPad’s top selling apps month after month and for good reason. It rivals many desktops apps for power and features. In this class we tackle Procreate to start drawing on the iPad.

Who is this for:

  • People who want to learn to draw but don’t know where to start
  • Illustrators looking to learn everything about Procreate
  • People who love drawing and sketching and want to start doing it digitally

Now updated for Procreate 5.

Program
Introduction to Procreate
Introduction
Welcome to the course where we are going to be drawing in Procreate on the iPad. in this lecture I'm going over the course and what you can expect and what you will need to take this class.
Getting Started - Files and Folders
Procreate's gallery is pretty simple but there are a lot of hidden features here like the ability to create folders, exporting and bulk actions.
Getting Started - Creating a Canvas
The canvas is where you draw in Procreate. By default it's the size of your screen but there is a lot of flexibility in the sizes, unites of measurement and DPI that you can use.
Get to Know the Tools
The Basic Tools
Where are the brushes? How do I erase? How do I change brushes sizes? We go over the basics and where you can find everything in Procreate.
The Brush Tool
The brush tool is one of the most powerful features in Procreate. In this section we go over some of the brush presets that can be pencils, pens, paint brushes, air brushes, special effects and much much more.
Shading With Brushes
In this section we take some of the brushes and use them in a practical application, shading a sphere. This is a common digital painting technique and this is how you do it in Procreate.
Activity 1
This is the first activity. I want you to take what we learned about brushes and use them to shade some spheres or share to get a feel for the different brushes available in Procreate.
Advanced Tools
Intro to Layers
Making a layer is easy, but how do the pros use layers? That's what we're going over in this section. And to do it we're going to be sketching and painting a strawberry.
Intro to Layers part 2
Now that we have the sketch and basic colors in place we are going to add shadows and shadings.
Requirements
  • You will need an iPad, preferably a newer one (iPad air, iPad Pro or a recent iPad Mini)
  • You will need the Procreate application from the app store
  • Some basic familiarity with the iPad would be useful
