About This Class

This is the second of a ten-part series on Drawing in Procreate. In this course we will to talk about Layers & Colors.

We will cover the basics of working with layers, discover the most useful layers gestures, fill drawings with color and create our own color palette.


This time we will take a closer look at the way other illustrators use color to bring art to life. Then you will put that knowledge to work in the project section, where you will draw your colorful printable calendar of April 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. If you don't know anything about the App, I recommend you to take the first course: Drawing in Procreate! Learning the basics. Tutorial 1: Brushes & Gestures. By the end, you will master drawing with layers, speed up your color process, have a nice April calendar and the inspirational push to continue 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! ;)
