Project Description

I’ve made a Gesture Cheatsheet for you! It’s a quick visual reminder of the different gestures in Procreate. Click here get the Gesture Cheatsheet. 


Your project is to share a time lapse video (or jpg) of the work you've created in Procreate. Be sure to include a link to your instagram, website, or anywhere else we can find your work!

Note: When creating your project, there's a section that says 'Add Content' and a button for video. If you have your video uploaded to youtube or instagram, you should be able to copy and paste the link and enter it in there. I've found it can be a little glitchy sometimes, so you might want to try another browser. If you're still unable to share a video, please feel free to just share an image of your artwork. Or alternatively, share an image and just the link to your video!



If you're interested in Lisa Bardot's brushes, you can find them on Creative Market
Julz Nally's work can be found at julznally.com.
