Training for Developers and Artists

06 Get Ready to Draw

In this episode, you’ll learn the basic setting for Procreate, create a new canvas, learn the four basic tools and the three primary brush media. We’ll also review sharing your work on Twitter.


For this lesson’s challenge, make abstract art by just throwing more brushes in lots of colors on top of each other. Then tweet me @Steve_Lipton with the #ExploreProcreate hashtag with a share of the work .


Steve Standard Palette

This is my extended palette, and the one I use in much of my work. The browns/blacks here will work for charcoal lessons too. We’ll discuss its construction when we get to colors.
