Let’s learn how to place brush lettering practice sheets in Procreate. If you’re wanting to practice brush lettering I’m sure you have found that the traditional methods can get expensive. That’s why I created these brush lettering practice sheet blanks for you to place in Procreate.
How Brush Lettering Practice Sheets Can Help Improve Your Lettering Skills
For traditional brush lettering, I’ve always relied on my handy Rhodia dot pads. They have just enough guidance without being a nuisance. However, as soon as I purchased my iPad Pro and installed Procreate I’ve not picked up traditional paper and pen.
These pads can help you with keeping your lettering straight and make sure you’re staying consistent with your lettering sizing.
Why I Created These Brush Lettering Practice Sheets
Because I do have a fondness for lines for practicing or warm-ups, I had to have something and that’s why I created these free blank practice sheets.
I have a set with dots and a set with lines for those of us that a little more traditional guidance when practicing our brush lettering.
- Horizontal Dots
- Vertical Dots
- Horizontal Lines
- Vertical Lines
You can print these and use them as traditional paper practice sheets with your favorite brush lettering pens, or you can place them in Procreate!
