Five of My Most Popular Procreate Tutorials

Procreate is an amazing tool. And, they just keep making it better and better. Soon we will have Procreate 5 and the app will continue to be the hottest tool for lettering and drawing.

Since I am traveling, I thought I would compile a post sharing five of my most popular Procreate tutorials. Maybe you missed them the first time around.

I want to get your eyes on them and see if they can challenge you to do more – I also have talked about changes/updates to the app in each post. The videos may be from an older version of Procreate, so that should help you.

1. How to Add Textures Like Glitter in Procreate

Learn how to add glitter to your lettering in Procreate with this free iPad Lettering tutorial from Holly Pixels.

This tutorial was an updated video from when I did the one How to Add Gold Foil Textures to Brush Lettering in Procreate. And, even since I re-did the video, Procreate came out with Clipping Masks.

Clipping Masks make life so much easier than before!

  1. Simply letter on one layer.
  2. Add your texture as an image above the lettering layer on a new layer.
  3. Then, tap on the texture layer for the fly-out menu and choose Clipping Mask.

Voila! See how much Procreate has changed just over the past couple of years! Love that.

2. Create an Instagram Worthy Quote in Procreate

When I put this tutorial together I wanted to incorporate both lettering and illustration together. I did take the color palette down from the vault though because I had to make room for new things. But you can screenshot the final image in the post and sample them in Procreate!

3. Procreate Love Wallpaper Using Letter Builder Toolkit

Love is in the air and with Valentine's Day around the corner I wanted to combine a lettering project with the holiday. This Procreate tutorial is a partnership with Design Cuts and I'll be using Ian Barnard's Letter Builder Toolkit to make this Love Wallpaper for your iPad.
