Using Procreate on iPad Pro to Create Brush Lettering

I've had numerous people ask me about how I am using Procreate on iPad Pro to create brush lettering that I do for my Friday Brush Lettering videos. I decided to create a video to the basic gist of how you use it and how the software works.

This is by no means me teaching brush lettering. I have an actual brush lettering course here. And, if you want to learn how to vector in Adobe Illustrator, you can find my course, Vector My Letters here. You receive the vector course in the brush lettering course so don’t purchase both!

Things I Can Share About Procreate

A few notes about the software:

  • It is not vector based. You need to use Adobe Illustrator or the app for it (Adobe Draw) to vector your artwork.
  • Work in layers. It will make things much simpler for you.
  • You can export your files as layered .PSD files and open those in Adobe Photoshop on your computer.
  • Procreate is just $5.99
  • There is an app called Astropad that turns your iPad into a tablet to mirror your computer screen (like a Cintiq).

Brushes for Procreate

I prefer to support artists when I can and purchase their brushes, but I also love a freebie here and there. Here are a few of my favorite brushes on my iPad Pro.

You can also purchase my brushes here.

I’ve bought or downloaded a lot of Procreate brushes that just didn’t make the cut for me. These are some that I have used and enjoy.
