About This Class

This is the first of a ten-part series on Drawing in Procreate. This sesion focuses on the basics of Procreate: Brushes and the most useful Gestures.

We will begin by learning about the App interface, how to speed up your drawing process thanks to the gestures and discovering which brush or brushes suit you.


We will take a closer look at the way other illustrators use line to bring art to life. Then you will put that knowledge to work in the project section, where you will choose the brush or brushes and techniques to draw your line art printable calendar of March in your own unique style.

I will use iPad Pro and Apple Pencil but it's ok if you use other IOS devices and your finger instead.

This class is perfect for everyone who wants to learn how to draw in Procreate. No prior knowledge of drawing or Procreate skills are required! By the end, you will know the basics of Procreate, have a nice March calendar and the inspirational push to start developing your own drawing style.

Illustrator/Graphic Designer at INobice

I love drawing, creating and building things since I was a kid so when I grew up I studied Architecture thinking it was going to be my future. Four years ago I decided it wasn't and I co-founded "INobice Design & Software". We build Apps, games and illustrated books for IOS and Android devices. I am really happy being my own boss!

Teaching at Skillshare is a totally new experience for me. My goal is learn a lot from all of you and make amusing videos about Illustration. I know, talking about how Procreate, Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop works is not funny but I will do my best to make the courses enjoyable. If any of them are boring, please just tell me! ;)
