Introduction: Hello and welcome to my course, learning procreate from scratch. This is going to be an awesome experience for me and for you hopefully. And this is an introduction video to this course. So procreate is in my opinion, the most advanced drawing type up that is available for tablets, specifically the iPad because procreate the app is designed special and only for the iPad. And then also the Apple Pencil. But you don't have to have ample pencil, but it works better with Apple Pencil. And procreate gives you a feeling of real-world drawing. I mean, not exactly. Nothing can exactly be real-world drawing as of yet with our current technology of our time, no, but yeah, so traditional art will always be king in my opinion. But for the purposes of demonstrating to you of this course as well as, you know, this course being about procreate. You know, I have to show you this, but the purpose of this course is to show you, I'm procreate app. And procreate is really an amazing piece of software and its amazing app. It's packed with features. And the goal of this course is to show you how to find those features and how to use them. I'd say most of the time, most people in any software in general don't really know how to find features, let alone used them. And so you can use this course any way you like. It can be a reference tool. So you can look up titles of videos or, or it could be something where my recommendation scores for you to go through it. Finish at least once, hopefully twice or three times, you know, repaved repetition is key to memorization. But nevertheless, it's, it will be a great resource for people to go back and watch videos according to the titles. So you know, they can look up those videos and learn from them as they wish. Because oftentimes when I take courses, I forget some of the content subtypes, so I have to go back and watch. So I hope this course is an excellent resource in that regard. Thank you so much for joining. 3. Interface and Gestures: Hello and welcome to the next video. So this video is going to be a little intro video again. Just going to say that this next section of videos is going to be called Interface and gestures. That's the title of this video, and it's kind of an overview of that. So every part of procreate is designed to make your workflow faster. If you notice the interface is very clean and it makes you focus on your art. And the multi-touch gestures of the iPad. They give you some pretty good control over what you create. So the next few videos are going to consist of the following. The first one will be about the interface, and in that video, we will explore the procreates infer interface. The next one will be gestures. And we will learn all about how you can control the gestures that you use to make your art with gestures. And then Apple pencil or a stylus, for that matter, doesn't have to be Apple Pencil. It could be third party, has to be iPad because procreate only it works on iPad. But we'll be talking about the Apple pencil. And we'll be talking about how you can unlock your full potential as an Apple Pencil user. It works really well with iPad, with procreate Apple pens, pencils, really sensitive and it speedy and its precise, as precise as a digital experience can get. For now anyways, and your 20-20. Next we'll be talking about keyboard shortcuts. If you have a keyboard on your iPad that could come and use, useful if you pair a computer keyboard to it. And then we'll be talking about the copy paste menu. That's very needed with any computing system is to learn how to copy and paste. And a little known feature about procreate is copy and paste. And lastly, in this section of videos, we'll be talking about quick menu. And you will learn how to enable, invoke and customize quick menu for one touch, flexibility and convenience. So thank you for watching. In the next video, let's learn about the procreates interface. 4. Interface: Another video. This is the where we get into the actual tutorial stuff. This is the interface of procreate and we're going to learn about a procreates wonderful interface. So the interface layout is designed quite well and my opinion, and allows you to focus on your artwork. And for an art app or drawing up, that's quite important. It has a minimal interface and it's divided into three parts. So up here, I'll just draw. Up here. Right here is the painting. That's the painting tools. And then in the top left, this is the side sidebar. And I'll show you that later. And then up in the top left as well, there is advanced features. So I'll show you how to access all of this. So number one is paint. That's this right here. And sketching, alright, wherein the sketching thing there. So yeah, on the top right here, on this top right menu bar. So you'll have everything you need to get started. You have paint, you'll have smudging, you'll have your Erase tool. You can create layers of art, the artwork, and you can choose colors. And choosing colors is quite important topic. But so number one, right here, right here. This is the paint. It's called paint. This button here that's indicated by this paint brush right here. And here is where you can sketch. You can ink, and you can paint. And there's hundreds and hundreds of brushes. Procreate has bunch of installed. And you can also get custom ones made by other people. So you can import those. Or you can share your own brushes that you eventually figure out how to make. And you can also organize your brush library like So. Later, we can learn all about that. When we go over the brushes section. Next is smudge. And that is okay when I erase this, and I'm going to click here and draw an arrow here. And then I'm going to click on that, and that's smudge. Now you can see smudging quite well. And smudge has an entire brush library in and of itself. So you can blend your artwork and you can mix your colors with the smudge tool. And what's really cool about smudge is it has a lot going on as far as brushes and have endless range of effects for smudge. So yeah. Next is the erase tool. And right here. That's the erase tool. Click and you don't really need to see that arrow, but I'll draw it anyways. And Erase tool also has a brush library. And Erase tool, of course, is where you can fix your mistakes and you can, you know, have fine adjustments with the eraser. And there's an entire brush library for the erase tool. And you'll be surprised how you could use all those brushes for the erase tool. That's quite amazing. So erase that. And next here is layers. So let's go over the layers. Layers. They have a unique power and procreate. And if you've used Photoshop, just think of that. You can paint with overlapping objects. And you can also paint without altering the design of some other layers. So you could paint, you could paint on this layer, scribbles here. And then on this. These are two separate layers. You can erase one and like so, so it's quite amazing and delete them and do a whole bunch of stuff. But that is layers. Layers is quite important to learn. So next is color. Colors right here. At the very corner there. This is color. Here you can select, adjust, and just edit all your colors. And there's multiple interfaces for this. The way you can select those is just click on the different values here, different buttons, and you can select the interface that you desire. Generally I do the disk. So for this tutorial, perhaps I'll be using this but never know, there's many options for the interface. Colors can have pilots and you can add your own palettes of colors. This is Heaven. No. All right. That is this whole situation covered. I'm just going to erase these here. But this whole area right there is amazing. And this is the, this is the painting tools. So let's just erase this and move on. So next Fourth, the interface of procreate is we're going to be exploring the left. And this is the sidebar, right here. The sidebar. Both sidebar. So the sidebars a place you can modify the tools that you're using. And it's always close at hand, right there, front and center. And you can use one hand like this. You couldn't be drawing away with this. And then you can increase the size of your Bush, lower the size of your brush, and different things like that. Sidebar is a very useful sidebar to half. Yeah. You can adjust things, you can redo and undo. And if you don't know the gestures and things, and there's lots of stuff and it frees up your other hands, you can work. And it's amazing. Just trust me. And yeah. So let's go here. Brush size I've showed you already, but you can drag this with your finger up and down to increase the size of your brush and make thicker strokes. Or you're going to drag it back down to make it smaller. So drag it up for thick. Drag it down for very thin. And yeah. Anyways, to make bigger investments, tap anywhere along the slider to jump. So just go like that, that you can tap. It's amazing. So to make finer adjustments, what you wanna do is hold and move along. Drag your finger much better. Yeah, you'll notice a slower effect when you do it that way. Yeah. Next is the Modify button. And that's a little button right in the middle. And that's right there. And the Modify button, if you're just tap on it, you'll see it's just a little square button right there, right in the middle of everything. That's the Modify button. And what it does is it automatically brings up the eye dropper tool. And so you can certainly pick colors. So you can move it around and you could pin the black, gray and now you have or you can pick the white. And now you can see as I'm drawing, there's nothing because it picked White and it's drawing on white so it doesn't try anything. But, yeah, you could pin pick a lighter gray right there. And now it's drawing with a lighter gray. The eyedropper tool is really amazing. And yeah, so that's how you get the Modify button. You can have the eye dropper tool. But the most powerful part of the Modify button is that you can reprogram the trigger with other tools, and we will learn more about that later. Now, next is brushed capacity, and that's the lower part. So let's go here. Let's go back to black here. And now let's pick on something like a inking brush or something, or something. And now let's erase this canvas to see more better. And now you can see this right here is drawing pretty dark. But the same rules apply. So you can click, hold and slide or you can tap along the lines here. And yeah, so smaller, more light. The darker are dark. And actually sketching tools would be better for that. Certainly like the. So let's do lighter. Lighter, still. Very light. You can see not much is going on. Darker. Darker. Yes. So that is the dry brush capacity. This is something that is unique to digital workflow, which is pretty nice. Of course. With a pencil in real life, you can really push down on paper to get a darker effect. But if appropriate, you can do that too. But yeah, that's a side point. This brush capacity, you can. Really edit with, with that, with ease, which Wonderful. And then lastly, for the sidebar right here, there's the undo and redo arrows. And all you have to do is tap and can undo and redo with these arrows. And of course there is gestures, but forgot the gestures or if you prefer the buttons, those can work as well. But I will have to tell you that there's up to 250 actions. You can undo or redo 250 actions. Yeah, but you can also tap and hold there out to undo and redo fest. That was one feature that's very nice. Undo and redo fast. Alright, so now, now we are going to be talking about the advanced features. So let's look at Gallery next. So let's go ahead and just erase this for a clean experience. So let's go to gallery. I have some art here already anyways. But this is the gallery. And this is a place you can organize all your artwork and you can create new canvases, and you can import images. And this is also where you can share your creations, different things like that. We will go over this, everything that I'm telling you about, we will go over in detail, but that's the gallery. Next is actions. So let's take a look at actions here. And this is the represented by the tool, the wrench icon. And it's kind of indicating that it's a very practical feature. And here you can insert, you can share, your can adjust your canvas size and things like that. And you can tweak the interface and the touch settings and edit most of your workflow quite a bit. Actions and there are a lot of things you can edit for your workflow. Yeah, don't worry, we'll go over all of this in depth later. Next is adjustments. Here, you can polish your artwork to perfection with professional image effects. So yeah, you can make complex color adjustments. You can tweak your image with capacity and blur, sharpen noise, clone and a lot of stuff liquefy. This is a lot of stuff. This is getting into the Photoshop type editing experience, so adjustments is a really nice. Next IS selections. Selections. You can isolate parts of your drawing and parts of your image with the selection methods. And these have lot of advanced options and you can modify your work with the selection stuff quite nicely. In fact. But later we'll talk about selections and then there's transform. This works hinted hadn't most of the time with selections. You can stretch, you can move, you can manipulate your image for easy edits from simple scaling to a lot of advanced things. And you can make big changes in really quit stuff. So this is another huge benefit of digital workflow. And it's. So that's something that traditional art can't quite beat. So this type of edits like that. Next, let's look about how to customize your interface. So you can tweak your procreate interface for the way you like best. So there is a dark and light interface, and she can just go to your toolbar icon, the actions, the dark. Unlike interface. There's two visual modes. And what you need to do is you want to go to preferences here and you can go. So it's in dark mode. Right now, it's kinda unobtrusive. It's more of a dark interface. And nowadays Pro apps are kinda like this mode, but if you like the light interface, you can switch to that easily. Write death, the late mode, the dark mood, the lite mode, that dark, nighttime, daytime, nighttime, datetime. Okay, so now you can also adjust where you wish to have. The sidebar. Sidebar is designed to be easily reached with your left hand while you paint and with it right? So your right-hand is painting and your left hand is working with the sidebar and stuff. What you wanna do is just okay, tap. Okay, let's go in here. And what you'll wanna do is go to Preferences. And okay, so if you wanted to do the right hand interface, you can adjust that. So the sidebar here just go to actions preferences, and then go right hand interface. So if you draw with your left hand, then you can edit with a sidebar on the left. So that's very nice. Next, let's talk about the sidebar more. And it's actually a movable sidebar. And you can adjust the height of your sidebar interface so it, it's interesting. So what you wanna do is you want to drag with your finger on like the bustle of the iPad and then drag it in and you move it up and down. So yeah, just drag your finger from the edge of your interface over the Modify button. So you'll notice it doesn't really work over if you drag your finger into the Brush size or capacity or something. But if you put it over the Modify button and drag it in, then you can modify the height of your sidebar in case you want it all the way up or way down, whatever you wish. But I generally like in the middle. That's kinda nice. Next, what you can do is you can see the shape of your brush before you make a mark. So when you activate the brush cursor, the outline of your brush shape will appear every time you touch the canvas so you can see the ship you'd mark. So what you wanna do, some other things like wake home tablets and stuff like that. Sometimes have this. So just tap on this tool icon the actions, and then go to preferences right here. And then what you can do is go to brush cursor. Right there and turn that on. And now, now you can see ever so slightly. There's like a little, you can see, let's try to do some huge brush here. There we go. You can see it quite well. So you can see actually the brush cursor on the screen. And so if you're really wanting something precise, like very, very pixel precise, and you'll want to put the brush cursor right on it where you want it. That might be a good idea. So yeah, that could be a good idea. So I just wanted to show you how to brush cursor. But let's go back to actions, preferences, and hide brush cursor for now because I'll leave it on default settings. And so now we're getting to the end of this video to stick with it. Next, go to, you can go to the hide interface. So you can work with your art with one brush and 0 distractions if you wish. So when you activate the interface, you can actually just top with four fingers. It's a gesture to up four fingers. And you can hide your interface. Just as a nice way to focus on your artwork and little bit 400 full-screen mode. And so yeah, interface will slide away easily and nicely. And just use your four fingers to bring your interface back. So there's, there's a little pro tip here though. Though your interface is hidden away in full-screen mode. You can invoke Coleman tools with gestures. And so we can do that here. So let's erase this for cleaning experience. Let's go to this and bad project canvas. This can connect a second display of your airplane where cable to project your canvas only. So that is another option or project canvas. Oh, okay. So I'm sorry. I'm getting a little confused here. The pro tip before that I mentioned, we will talk about later in another video. If you use your four fingers to hide away your interface, you can actually get and some of those tools back by gestures. And we will talk about that in the next video, gestures. But yeah, anyways, so the next awesome thing about the interface is you can click on Actions and project, project Canvas. So you could actually connect a second display via air play or cable. So you could, you could have your Canvas only. And yeah, so that's another option. And work on fine details with procreate. Well, keeping an eye on the big picture so you can have like your big 4K display up here and then you could connect it through screen via this project canvas. It's an excellent option, I think. Anyways, that's it for the interface. I hope that was a quick and organized video on the interface to procreate. But we'll cover 90% of this course actually. But there was a lot more videos coming up. So pay attention and watch those as well. Thank you so much for watching. 5. Gestures: Hello there and welcome to another video. This video is going to be all about gestures in procreate. And gestures are a way to control your art. And it's very intuitive way to navigate around procreate. So first let's go over some basic gestures. Yeah, so the first one is touched to paint. So as you can see, I am just touching to paint, touch, touch, touch with my fingers, touch, touch, touch. I'm touching to paint. And yeah, that's that's it. Yeah. Procreate works best with Apple pencil right here. And but you don't need that to start painting and use your finger. But yeah. Here's a little pro tip. You can let's say you did get an Apple Pencil. Later. You can edit the tap with your finger to something else if you wish. And later in this course, I'll show you how to do that right now. Top is to paint. So let's go ahead and delete that for now. So another thing is smudge. So let's go ahead and draw something near. And so with your finger, you can smudge. You can smudge with your finger. Just like you were working with charcoal and papers. And other thing is you can erase with your fingers. Well, your finger can do most of the things. Alright, so next is pinch to zoom. So you can use two of your fingers. And you can pinch the canvas like this. And you can pinch to zoom in, just pinch to zoom out. And if you have used any mobile device and the past, I'm sure you know how that helped to do that. It's fairly straight forward. But another thing is you can use to her fingers to twist. So just like you were a twisting a picture and the photos app of iPad or a tablet, or a phone or anything, people basically now this, so this is good. But you can pinch to zoom, pinch to twist and all of that. And there's another thing you can do is you can quickly, quickly do this. So pinch to zoom, zoom out. But you can quickly go. And yeah, and what that does is it makes your screen fit, fit to the screen. So click up. And it's a nice little quick gesture. It's a called a Quick pinch in procreate. And yeah. Another thing is, so let's say we are drawing here a bunch of lines, random lines that don't make any sentence. You can take two of your fingers and you can undo everything. Just take two fingers and you can do I can do a lot of lines, lot of line and solid line, line, line. And you can take and do it. Really fast and oh, yeah, you can undo really fast. Okay, so here's something to keep in mind. So typically you could undo this, but if you went into gallery mode and went back, now when you talk to undo, nothing happens. So keep in mind if you go back to gallery mode or if you exit procreate app, all the undo actions will be gone. And procreate can undo up to 250 actions, should just keep that in mind as well. So to demonstrate all of this, let's just go ahead and delete this. I take three lines, I undo those actions and then I take three fingers and I redo those actions. Ok, that makes more sense. For some reason that was having a bit of a hiccup there. So three fingers, three fingers redo, two fingers undo 33 fingers redo. Very good to know. Of course there's these buttons right there. Those can work. But why is that when you can use gestures? So just go ahead and delete that layer as well. Keep things clean. I'm gonna use the put this pencil aside because we're talking about gestures. Now. Now the thing is you can use three fingers to two redo, but you can also swipe your three fingers down. And this little fact, Let's go back there and swipe your fingers down to bring up this little this little layer, this little pop-up. And yeah, this is three finger swipe. Brings up cut, copy, copy, all Paste and all that stuff. We'll talk a lot about copy and paste later. But I'm gonna do a quick little thing. You can quickly swipe your three fingers down, press cut, and that deletes all the content of your layer. It's a nice little pro tip or whatever. And now next, take four fingers and you can just tap on your screen there. And it makes a nice full-screen Canvas so you don't have to. This is a way you can step back and focus on your work. And so you have a brush selected and you're just loving working without brush. False for four fingers for full screen mode. And now for some quick shapes, you can take your finger and draw a quick shape and see how that circles less than perfect. You just took that circle and then the hold. And you can see now saying that with a line hold. So you draw and hold, and then it straightens up or makes it a nice circle. And those features are called Crick shape and procreate. Very nice. Another thing is, I already showed you about this, but this is technically a gesture. So it just take from the edge your finger, push in over little Modify button, go up and down. Nice. So little options with gesture. But now let's talk about layers. We're gonna add a bunch of layers to work with. So layer gestures. It's important to work quickly and efficiently layers. And you can use simple gestures to do that. Think of Photoshop or something like that. Layers are really important. You can achieve a lot of effects and wonderful things with layers. So that you can combine two more layers. Just go like this. Take two fingers and pinch them together and you combine tumor layers. Now, as you can imagine it, see here this blue, this is the primary layer. As I am tapping layers here, it is, selecting the primary later. Blue is the primary active layer. Anything you do, any drawing or painting will, on that layer will work. Whereas, you know, if you try to draw it another layer, it will work. So, So another thing is you can swipe right to activate secondary layers. And that's pretty much I'll talk about that right now because later I'll talk about primary and secondary layers. But yeah, so just swipe right for activating second layer, secondary layer. Now, another thing is to finger tap for layer capacity. So you can take two fingers and swipe, right. Whoops, not left, just swipe right. And you can see those two layers are capacity and swipe it again with two fingers and they're not capacity anymore. So let me show you a nifty little trick. So this layer, we have drawn some stuff here and take the two fingers and do the opacity. And so now, let's make the color red. Now you can see that's the virtue of that. The layer pasty, whatever's active on it is the selection kind of. And now if you go back, turn off the capacity of the layer and you try to draw red, it goes back to normal. Now the thing is you can swipe two fingers left, and that brings up these options, duplicate, lock, delete, rest lock. And that layer is locked. Can't do anything. You try to draw it, it says locked and you try to delete. It says locked. So you just tough to take two-finger swipe left, unlock, and then Tip two fingers, swipe left and delete. Go back. Little features there. Now, let's draw some more here. Let's go back to black here. And let's draw. Some stuff, doesn't matter. And so this two-finger hold to select layer contents. This is what I'll show you next. So click the Layers panel. And what you wanna do is just take two fingers and hold on that layer. And you can now see you have selected the layers contents. And this will make everything transparent and whatever is on the layer like drawings and stuff, those will be non-transparent. They will be the selected part. And you can take all sorts of actions in regards to selected areas. You can paint it, transform it, copy it, clear. It could do a lot of stuff with selections. And later we will talk about selections. Those are amazing and important to know. Now. Lastly, I want to show you how to customize your gestures. Just go to this toolbar, icon, the actions, and then go to Preferences. And now you can press gesture controls. And gesture controls are quite important. Most shortcuts can be turned, toggle on or off. You can set up multiple shortcuts for the same function or deactivate all shortcuts for functions you don't really use. And you know where a shortcut can be triggered by a touch and hold. You can use a slider to set the delay. Before that shortcut triggers. You can assign the same shortcut. You cannot sign the same shortcut to two different things. Otherwise, that, that'll be a problem and it would be like a little icon showing that you can't do that. So you get to have the same shortcut for the same thing, two different shortcuts for the same thing. You can't do that. But yeah, I just wanted to show you this. You can customize all these different things in here. Gesture controls, that's really important. But I will just keep everything in default for this course because I am showing you this course as if you were learning it from scratch, but I just wanted to show you that anyway, so that's it for the gestures video. Hope you enjoyed it. Gestures are really important. You can use your fingers to do amazing things with the iPad and procreate app. Who leads it? Apple pencil, I'm just kidding. But I always have a good day. 6. Apple Pencil: Hello there. Today we're gonna be talking about this wonderful little thing, the Apple pencil. The Apple pencil for the iPad is, we're truly great and it works really great with the procreate app. There's a lot of features that you can use with the Apple pencil. There's pressure sensitivity and theirs tilt and speed and different things like this and it's pretty precise, especially the second generation of the Apple pencil was procreate. It's really nice. So using Apple pencil, there's a lot of brushes for the Apple pencil of default brushes that come with procreate. But there's a lot of custom brushes out there that work well with the Apple pencil as well. Now, set up as a bit of a bear takes little work. There's about 23 different drivers that you have to install on your Mac. And then you have plugged in your iPad to your Mac. You're going to get the Apple pencil running. But after that, it can run pretty well. Just kidding, all you have to do is draw ce, done. As far as the Apple pencil goes, all you have to do is connect it to your iPad. And once it's paired with your iPad, it will work great on procreate. It's nothing you have to do above that. End to pair on your iPad. All you do is kind of like that. You see, it's pretty, pretty nice design. Yeah. Now, there's a lot of brushes that are optimized to work with the Apple Pencil, with the pressure and the tilt. And yeah, you could customize your brushes also to work better with your Apple pencil. So but we'll, oh, we'll talk to you about that later because I'm gonna be talking about brushes and a whole other section. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but suffice it to say for now you can customize your brushes to work with the Apple Pencil differently. And then also you can customize the way the Apple pencil registers to the different changes in pressure until very, very precisely. So this feedback effects how brushes respond when you use your Apple pencil. So for example, you can tie the brush size to the Apple pencil. Pressure. So the procreate pencil right here, I really press down comparing two really light. You can kinda see the brush size is actually increased in size. When I pressed hard. It's got darker and it's increased in size. So that's an example of that. You can also, you can tie brush tilt with opacity. So as I told here. I'm tilting the output pencil. Technically it's tilted, not me. And as I tilt more, it gets more and more light. And so what that is, is it's just simply making the opacity that changing the opacity settings. But there's a lot of things you can do. You can associate scatter with Tilt, color change with pressure, and you can do a lot of stuff. There's hundreds of different, thousands of different customizable options for you. For the procreate brushes and Apple pencil. And you can have really unique effects. Now, if you go to assist and preferences, you can go to gesture controls and then assisted drawing. There's some effects here. Like Apple Pencil, double-tap, double-tap on compatible LPA pencil. We'll talk about drawing assist on the current layer. That's an example of what you can do. I'll talk about that shortly. But aside from those little settings, you have brushed settings that I will talk to you about later. Now. Now let's get back to the double-tap shortcut. You can do that in gesture controls. Okay, so first of all, fall, we'll show you how it works. You're just double-tap on kinda the flat side of the Apple pencil and just double tapping. And you can see here and went to the eraser, double-tap, pencil, double-tap, eraser, double-tap, pencil, double double tap. Double-tap, eraser. No, come back. See sometimes it's a bit finicky and my opinion, at least with my fingers or something. But so you can adjust this further. You can go to gesture controls here. And in smudge, you can smudge but erase. You can create assisted drying here like this Apple pencil double-tap, double-talk on compatible output pencil, told will assist, joining assist on the current layer. I dropped her double. Wherever you see this Apple pencil, double tap, Apple Pencil double tab. You can choose which stuff you want. And yeah, you can choose to have the drawing assist activated when its double tap. You'd do the eyedropper. Quick quick menu, the full screen. It's four fingers for the gesture I showed you in the last video, but you could do a double tap on the pencil. You could also clear your layer, but that's probably not a good idea. And then you can also invoke the copy paste menu if you wish, or you can turn it off. And iOS settings under Apple pencil, you can turn off any of this. So wouldn't have any double-tap stuff which I'm actually attempted to do. I'm not gonna do it for this video because this is showing you the default settings of procreate. But for my workflow, I potentially do that because he saw how sometimes I activate, I draw activate their racer when I don't want to and it erases the work that I did and I don't know to be determined, I suppose. Now lastly with the pencil section, I wanna talk to you about pressure curve. So just go to your actions and then go to Edit pressure curve. Here. Just like working in Photoshop, you can edit stuff and you can edit the pressure curve. You can see that barely causes any pressure. And this can cause dark, dark pressure. I'll reset that 3D plots. I'm going to talk more about pressure curve later in. But yeah, the Apple pencil has a huge dynamic range. You can press it down very hard to reach like a 100% pressure or opacity. Or you can draw a lighter to get not a 100% like 50%, whatever. Pasadena and the letter you go, the less percentage of opacity and pressure and stuff. So sensitivity and pressures are really nice. But to get the most out of the Apple pencil, knowing about this pressure curve and editing the pressure curve may be very useful for you. But anyways, that is that, that's it for this Apple pencil. It's a wonderful little addition to the work flow. You don't have to use the Apple pencil for. That's the one optional piece of equipment. You have to have an iPad. You have to have procreate. Obviously, John, he was procreate. You have to have an iPad because it's procreate is only made for that. But with procreate, you could use your fingers, you could by a third party stylists, or you could use Apple pencil. So this is the one decision you can't choose. I recommend Apple Pencil because it's all built in and nice and precise. Anyways, thank you for watching. Have a good day. 7. Keyboard Shortcuts: Hello there. Today we're gonna be talking about keyboard shortcuts for procreate app. And you can access an array of advanced features quite fast with the keyboard, keyboard shortcuts. So to connect your keyboard, you just need to go to the Bluetooth settings of your iPad or just connect an iPad, smart connector, keyboard, whatever. So yeah, either way. Whenever you have a keyboard connected to your iPad, yeah, you can do a lot of stuff with those keyboard shortcuts and to reference all the shortcuts. So I'll just give an example when I press Spacebar, it brings up the quick menu there. But then, Yeah, so to access all the keyboard shortcuts and see what they can all do. Press and hold the command key. And now you can see a whole bunch of options. Yeah, so you can, for example, selection mode, press on the keyboard, and it brings up Selection mode. This is quite useful and there's two pages. So just press and hold command to learn about, memorize all of the keyboard shortcuts. Those are quite useful. For. The iPad. Keyboard just off to the side can be pretty useful for, can make you feel like a professional. Anyway. Thanks for watching about keyboard shortcuts. 8. Copy Paste Menu: Hello there. Today we're gonna be talking about the copy paste menu. And this is an important thing to know about procreate copy and paste. Because huts handy, you know, regular computing copy and paste has been around since the eighties or whatever. I don't know when Copy and Paste was invented, but ever since then, it's like a given you have to have copy and paste. And there's one handy little shortcut that gives you six options for copy and paste. And it's the copy and paste menu. So you can access all the copy and paste actions you need by simply dragging three fingers down and the chemists just three fingers and swipe it down. And one law, the copy and paste menu is to split in all its glory. No. Okay, so first of all, we have here cut. Pretty sure I can't draw. Let's just sorry. Yeah. Okay, there we go. Cut. Cut is right there. And you know what caught layer is. This is the classic clipboard function that will remove your silicon area from your document. And it will store it in the clipboard and the iOS clipboard so you can paste it anywhere else in your Canvas. In a different procreate canvas, or get this a different app so you can cut or copy things from procreate and paste them indifferent app, but also in different layers and different chemistries and different things. So you can cut this from this this one and go to the gallery and paste it in a different one. But yeah, Cut and Copy. And then copy. Copy works the same as cut, but it doesn't remove the selection and it just leaves the original, but then you can copy it and duplicate it basically. So let us do that. That's draw scum scribbles, swipe three, cut. And let's just go to the different layer. Do that. Paste and you have your scribbles. And likewise purse copy paste. And you can move that around and do foot duplicated the scribbles. And I showed you a paste. Paste is just simply pasting than what you got from cut or copy. And copy all, copy all copies, the entire canvas. So we're Cut and Copy. They will only affect one layer. Copy, copy all, will copy all of the layers, all the content of every visible layer. So if you don't want something copied, you can make a layer an invisible, but then you know what paste is. Alright, so now you can do is press cut and paste. And that basically takes your thing. And it's, it's an easy way to move it. And then another way swiped three fingers down, copy and paste. And that's basically a quicker button than parsing. Copy. And then paste. Instead. You can do copy and paste in one button. So it's nice and handy, those little things. And here's some pro tips. You can access copy paste options in the quick menu. So the quick menu, as you recall, you have to go to actions, preferences, and gesture controls. And let's try to find quick, quick menu. And you can. By default actually quick manure is not available, so you have to press tap, tap will invoke or dismiss. Quick menu. So let's do that. And tapping, tapping, tapping, tapping, topped up, top, top, top, top. Okay, why is it not? Okay, let's try something else. Just to controls. O it touch with a finger. Sorry, I don't know what tapping is. So touch will invoke quick minuss. So just go like this. Security that touch and now you have quick menu. And so this is the pro tip. It's that you can access copy and paste in the quick menu. So that's another more complex way. And then another thing is you can go to actions and then add. And then you can access right here, cut, copy, copy, copy and paste. And those are more places to find. Copy and paste. Well, I just copy and paste and the glory of that. Thank you for watching. 9. QuickMenu: Okay, so welcome to another video. In this video we're going to be talking about the quick menu of procreate. And so quick menu is pretty nice and you can customize it. And it's a radial menu, meaning it's a circle of buttons. A lot of professional softwares have this like the blender. I did a course on blender. You can enable a radial menu if you wish. And I actually prefer, unlike radio menus, they're kinda nice. And so there is an option you can customize the radio menu, but first you have to, by default, you can actually not activate radial menu. You have to, you have to customize it to turn it on so you can actually activate it to begin with. So just go to this tool icon here. The actions go to Preferences and then go to gesture controls right there. And yeah, click on quick menu. And here is where this is the way it starts up with. There's actually, it's all turned off. So you can actually not activate quick menu normally. Z, you can decide which method you like. You know, tap, tapping. You can see that's a problem. Tapping the Modify button on the sidebar that would disable the eyedropper. So you don't really use the eyedropper much or you want to assign some different shortcut for that touch that would disable, taken your fingers and drawing with your fingers or smudging with your fingers. So if you like that, that's not the answer for you. So there's a lot of things. So there's another thing, Apple pencil while holding, okay, that would also just say, well, the Modify button for the eyedropper tool to swipe. For swipe, those are taken up by other things. So it's all what you want. So touch and hold, that's another option. Okay. That also makes us you can't draw. Okay. You can draw, but touching a hold. So that's that's a good thing. I might pick that. And, you know, it all depends on what you really want. So you could actually double tap on your Apple pencil. You could have that double-tap on the Apple pencil. Because typically that brings up the Eraser tool, but double tapping on the Apple pencil, activate the radial menu. But I kinda like double tap on the pencil to go the eraser. So you could also select a delay. So you could actually have a 1 second delay. That way it doesn't mess up your drawing experience and smudging experience with your fingers. So you could still draw and you could still go to smudge and you could still smudge but then tap and hold for 1 second. And okay, let's go back to the draw, their tap and hold for 1 second. And that would bring up the radial menu. And perhaps that's a little long. So you could change that to maybe 52nd, 49 seconds or whatever. So tap and hold. Yeah. So yeah, that's a good option and I think that's for me, that's what I will do. But basically I'm trying to say is you decide what you like. Just go, There's gesture controls and figure out which method you like best for bringing up the quick menu. And now that we are in the quick menu, let's take a little bit of a tour of this. We've called up the quick menu here. And it has a bunch of functions. And anyways, so once you get familiar with the button on each of this radio menu, you could actually your tap and hold and you could actually set action. So if you like it the way it is, like flip horizontal. So let's draw something here. Press and hold the horizontal. That is an extremely useful quick menu situation. But, you know, say copy, you didn't really need copy because there's a lot of other ways to get the copy. You can press and hold. And you can you can see all these options. Human have no action if you wish. But there's a lot of buttons you can choose to figure out, and you can customize what you wish. But this little radio menu is pretty nice. But by default, as you can see, there's new layer. Flip Horizontally, Copy, Merged down, cool air and flipped vertically. But yeah, you can change any of these buttons and procreate and figure out which buttons you use most. And the quick menu is, it lives up to its name. It's a quick menu. So just remember those, those settings and buttons and figure out. So to wrap up Go tool, preferences, gesture controls, go to quick menu, figure out which configuration you'd like to activate the quick menu. And once you activate the quick menu, you can either use the buttons here or you can press and hold the button and figure out which of the many buttons you can choose. So anyways, that's quick menu in procreate, I'm very useful. Radial Menu. Thank you for watching. 10. Gallery Overview: Hello and welcome to this video. This next video is going to be slight. Neil ie, an overview video of the next few videos. And it's entitled Gallery, because we are going to be talking about the gallery in procreate. Um, so Gallery is a way you can organize all your canvases and you can discover how things work in the gallery. And the next few videos, I'll be showing you all of this. So obviously the first video is going to be about creating content, creating canvases here in the gallery. And you can choose from a variety of presets, but you can make your own and you can make custom. But there's presets as well. And we'll have a video about that. And then we'll have a video about Preview. Now where you can view your artwork in full screen. You can preview your animations and you can swipe through your creations in a stack or selection without even leaving your gallery. And then we're going to also learn about organizing. Only have one little thing here, but I'll create more just for the purpose of showing you how to organize all your, your artwork. And this is, you know, keeping organized with all your artwork will be very nice. And there's gonna be things called stacks that you can keep your artwork nice and kinda like folders. Or you can keep your artwork Nice, organized. And then we're going to talk about import and share. How we're going to learn how you can import images and create new canvas and share your art. And then also lastly, in the last video of this section, we'll talk about file types. So in procreate, you can import as well as export a variety of file types and image formats and big, so yeah, like you could literally export PSD file type and then open it in Photoshop. So lots of options. This next few videos, we'll be really great. Thank you for watching. 11. Create Canvas: All right, welcome to the next video. This is the first video of the gallery section of videos. And this video is entitled Create, because this is where on the gallery here. And we're going to create some canvases to draw on. In procreate, you can choose a variety of canvases. And there's a lot of custom options you can set as well to create your canvas. So to create a new Canvas, all you have to do, take your finger and press on the plus button. Simple enough. No. So just that little plus button and it brings up this nice little pop-up window in procreate. And it's entitled New chemists. And it's a new canvas menu. So the first step is you can use a template. There's a lot of templates here. Procreate offers a variety of preset canvas template's. And that just makes life a little more easy for most people. And there's a lot of useful sizes. So there's a list of canvases here, and they include screen size. So that's just the screen size of the iPad. And this, Yeah, so that's that. And then there's other things like square. Square uses the about the same pixel ratio that the iPad has accepted. It makes it square instead of the screen size. And then there's high resolution, meaning 4K. And then there is A4 paper. So that's the size of a regular A4 paper. And then there's six by four by six photo just to regular standard photo size. And then us paper because US has to be different as far as paper goes. Which is just entitled paper here. And then comic. And you notice there another color profiles, CMYK is for comic and then RGB for the others. And then there's untitled Canvas, I created that there. So let's get to the next thing there. So to create our first, to delete a Canvas, you'd just take and swipe to the left here. And you can either edit or it can delete. So I deleted the untitled canvas there. And then you can create new canvases by clicking this button there. But I'm going to do that quite yet. So yeah, all these presets work really well, and I would recommend using them. But if you really do need a custom situation, just click that plus button right there. And this, this UI will pop up in front of you. And first it might be a little confusing, but let me explain. So okay. So you can adjust the name. So you could just top, top on untitled canvas and entitled it. Oh, let's see here. What should we name it? Let's name it, name, super original name. And then there's dimensions. You can change the dimensions there to whatever you wish. And then there is DPI. And then maximum layers, maximum layers kind of those populate automatically. So let's go to 100 AT p. By p, It was ten API. I forgot what 1080 P was. Okay, that's weird. Forgot what 1000 API was. The height. The width is of course ten NADP, but the height, sorry, I forgot that. But let's just do 500 or something. It doesn't really matter. Okay, done. And yeah. Alright, so I searched and I realized that attaining the P, the width is actually 100000920 pixels, and then the height is 10080 pixels. So that's interesting. Tonicity. Alright, anyway, Here's a pro tip, changing the size of their canvas. We'll change the maximum layers on, by the way, DPI stands for Dots Per dots per inch, I believe. Anyway. And so changing the size of your cans of Canvas, we'll change the maximum numbers, maximum layers. So you can see actually I can't click on 250 maximum layers because that's automatically generated. So let's do something ridiculous. Let's do 8 thousand by 8 thousand. And now you can see without many pixels, the max amount of layers you can have is six. And this is what this iPad can do. Others can do less. And this is the 20-20 iPads. So currently that's the most advanced one, I guess. But let's do something like for k square 4K anyways now you can have 37 layers. So just so you know, the layers can adjust according to the amount of pixels you have. Now let's go to color profile. Color profiles are different ways for your artwork and to be managed with their colors. So RGB is best for artwork to be seen on screens. So RGB manages color the same way that screens do by seeing colors as mixtures of red, blue and green RGB, red, blue, green. And then there is CMYK, RGB there. And that CMYK here. And CMYK is the best option for artwork that is supposed to be printed. This sees each color as a mix of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, which is how most commercial printers handle color. So by choosing the color space that best matches for your artwork will be determined by the destination that you wish your artwork to be. And you'll get more vivid and accurate color results accordingly. Choose RGB or CMYK. So just keep that in mind. So procreate comes with 19 color profiles tailored to a broad range of screen and print purposes. So let's go here. Cmyk. So display, display P3 here. That's the best, are like the generic for RGB and then generic CMYK profile. Those should suit most of your needs. But I won't go in detail for the rest of them. But if you're doing RGB display, B3 is good and CMYK, generic CMYK profile, it's probably best. But here's a pro tip. If you go to RB or DB display P3 with a canvas like that, you can use extra greens, reds and oranges. So iOS. Now, time-lapse settings. This is for the custom canvas and procreate. You can record the progress as you work on your art. And it can play back as a high-speed time-lapse video afterwards. So that's nice. And nowadays, in the new procreate updates, you can choose your time lapse settings for each individual canvas that you create. So you can select a resolution like ten ADP, two k or 4K. Low good studio, lost lists or anything like that. Yeah. Okay, so tiny into p two for 4K over. So that's that's pretty straightforward. A low, low quality as a smaller size, and it's good for sharing. But they're very most tier lossless is the perfect quality with no loss of detail. That's what loss less means is there's there's no loss, but it is a larger file, so you have to have some good space on your iPad. And then below that is HEVC. And it's a new form of video compression for advanced motion graphics creation. And that can be toggled on there off. And I will show you more about HEVC in a later video that's special for time-lapse videos. And then lastly it's go to Canvas properties. And this is basically where you select the background color and if your background is like opacity or not. Default color for your background or hidden if its capacity you're not. Anyways, that is how you can create new, new custom canvases in procreate. Thanks for watching. 12. Preview: Hello and welcome to the next video in this course. Today we are going to be talking about the preview feature in procreate. And the preview feature allows you to view your artwork in full screen mode. You can also preview your animations, which later in this course, I will have a whole section of videos about animations. You can also swipe through your creations and in a stack or a selection without leaving the gallery. Just kinda like a photo, photo app, an iPad or something. So to preview, just take two fingers and pinch open. And then just pinch back to put it back into the gallery mode. And so two fingers pinch open, branch back, and it's basically like the photos up. Now, you can also preview a batch of artwork. So compressed, select, select, select, select, select, select all five of these. And then you can just go like this. Or actually, sorry, you can press preview. And now you can preview all of them here. And that's how you can preview multiple Also if you are in preview. So let's get rid of multiple selections here and just tap on this year. Okay. Well, I'm click-through. I just tapped on instead of taking the pinch to zoom, but I'm just going to scribble some that way. You can see that this is some wonderful art. So go back to gallery and you can pinch open there. So we can see our scribbles are here. And you can double tap. And that will, that will make it go into the gallery or the canvas. So Gallery, pinch two fingers up, activates preview, pinch down. And it takes it and puts it back into the gallery. But instead of pinching, if you just double tap, then opens the canvas. So that's nice. Rapid gestures that you can use to quickly work with your art and preview it and stuff like that. Thanks for watching. 13. Organize: Oh, there. And this video about procreate will be about how to organize your lessons. This video will be about how to keep your workspace organized with procreate. The gallery here. And gallery has some pretty amazing ways you can speed up your workflows and stuff. So let's talk about sharing, duplicating and deleting. To share, duplicate or delete your artwork. All you have to do on the thumbnail on one of your pieces is swiped with one finger to the left. And so you just swipe with one finger to the left. And you could either share, duplicate or delete your artwork. And just, just so you know, deleting the artwork is permanent. There's no undo for that. So before you press that red button, make sure you know what you're doing and just tap somewhere else to unselect that. Now, there is some also bulk, bulk actions you can take. Bulk actions are nice because they save your time when you need to like share or delete or duplicate more than one piece simultaneously. So what you do is simply press Select and the, the iPad in the gallery here. And then you can click each one or a tap. And to select them. Once you have selected multiple artworks, you can use the buttons in the toolbar and the upper right here to share, duplicate, or delete, just like if you swipe left. And there's also the preview function we went over where you can preview your artwork. You can also tap and hold an artwork to pick up all currently selected artworks and stacks and rearrange them in your gallery. So yeah, to select multiple artworks quickly, just make sure to go into this select mode. And you know, the top of each one that you want to select. And that's very nice. Now let's talk about rearranging artwork. So you can arrange your artwork in your gallery and moving your artwork is pretty easy. All you do is press, press and hold. So press, keep your finger on the screen and then just move it over to where you wish. Like so it's actually very nice and straightforward. Yeah, moving artwork around procreate is easy in the gallery feature. So yeah. The moving multiple canvasses, you can do that. So just take your fingers press and hold one, like like this. And then you can just tap others. And it's kind of, well, two hands would be better. So let's do that. Press and hold one like so. And then you can just tap another and you can move multiple of them at once. Really nice. You can also rotate your art. So I'm not going to demonstrate rotating your art on the square here because that would not work. But two. Rotate your art, entered preview mode to rotate your art. Now I entered the art road. What you wanna do is just rotate your two fingers. Just rotate without selecting on it, just around it. And you can rotate your arm like this really nice and easily. Sometimes it gets a little harder to do. It's like you're clicking on it. So you just kind of have to figure that out, but you can rotate your artwork because it's nice. But now you can also rename your artwork. It's good to have names under the thumbnail of your artwork because, you know, like if you share your artwork or export file and the name will be the name of the file or something. So it's, and then it's also good for organization purposes. So to give your artwork name, all you have to do is tap on the text. Not just be careful not to tap on the piece itself, but just on the text under it. And I'm just going to have a nice inventive process of naming names. I'm sure you're impressed. Name one named tube, named three, loaded on it. And so yeah, we have named our artwork. Now there's another awesome feature of organizing your work and procreate, and that is to give your artwork stacks. So to demonstrate this just a little bit better, I'm gonna take three of these artworks and just kinda fill color here. Well, we'll go into all of this color stuff later. But I'm just gonna quickly fill some color that way. You can see the stack method better. So yeah, arranging your artwork into stocks can be handy to pile up your artwork together. So one way you can create a stack is to go simply click Select mode and then click on the ones that you want to stack and then press stuck. So that's one way. Or it can select on this. And yeah. So, so that's how a stack works. But you can also stack your artwork in a different way. You can click on the hold on one of your pieces and put them together. And now they're stuck together like so. So it might be a little easier for you just to tap and drag them together or select depending on what you wish. So to move your artwork out of a stack, this is important too. So just pick one or more of your artworks and then go like this. You could select sometimes. Okay? And we attempt to just hit stack, and now it's back to stack these altogether. Let's do that again. So let's just move this one out. And what you do is just press stack and it's moved out of the stack. But yeah, and that's just click and drag that back into the stack. As you can see, it thought it was moving around so that you have to make sure that it goes over the stuck pretty well. Wait some time. Okay. Yep. Just trying to move this into the stack. There we go. Ok. I guess to move it into a stack, you have to wait. And then there we go. Now it's in the stack. Sometimes I like the select button a little bit or because, you know, what are sometimes moving and dragging them may not work so perfectly. All right, and then renaming a stack is the same as there we go. We renamed the stack because that is the same as renaming artwork, right? That is about how to organize your artwork in the gallery of procreate. I hope you loved it. And this is a nice way to organize your artwork. It's, I think it's awesome. Perhaps the clicking, clicking and dragging and dropping and dragging might need a little more work, but I'm sure in future versions of procreate things will get more smooth. But if you don't totally enjoy the experience, you can just click select and tap them and I can be an option as well. So anyways, thanks for watching. 14. Import and Share Art: So today we're gonna be talking about importing and sharing your artwork in the gallery section of procreate. So yeah, we'll learn about how to import an image or create a new canvas and also how to share your art with the world. So to import a new canvas using the file's app. So just go to import. And here you can browse your downloads and other files on your iPad, iCloud Drive, or recents? I actually have no files on my iPad, but if you have files on your iPad, you can actually just press Import and start a canvas from there. And another way to import, as you can import directly from your photos app. So it pressing import would import to, you know, from your files out. But then pressing photo here, imports from the photos app. And you can see I have no photos here, but if I was to have photos, I can just click on that and start new canvas with the photo. And so now that's how you import. So now procreate also provides many ways to share your artwork and you really need to do that or otherwise. And let the pint, Just kidding. So what you can do is you can put, well, I'll select here, select. And then you can press share. And here there is multiple situations that you could choose. You can share a procreate file, Photoshop file PSD, PDF, JPEG, PNG, tiff, animated, GIF, animated other things. So lots of options for sharable files. Something else that I want to show you is you can actually click on two or more and you compress share and it will share multiple. So that's another option for you. Awesome. And another thing I wanted to show you is that you can actually drag and drop your artwork. And so this is a sharable situation as well. So there's take your iPad and let's take the files out. Angle like this. So you can just click and drag. And you can actually take some of your files and you can drag them in other apps. So there's tons of options as far as that, or you can click and drag into other apps. But that's just one sample. Using the files out. You can drag and drop and do stuff like that as well. So yeah, you can share your art to many destinations, apps, folders, crowd services, different things. There's also IOS sharing. And you can also share directory via air drop in, even Air Print and stuff like that, these type of services. So you can do is just click on a piece of 4t and then click on Actions here, press share, and rings the same, same situation here. But let's click on JPEG. And here you can see all of these options. So you can share too, whatever the iOS settings you can choose which places you want to have shared. So just go to your general and iOS sharing settings and you can choose which ones are available, which apps are available to be shared there. So yeah, you could do that here. You could do it from here. Many, many options, but just cancel that for now. Another thing you can do is you can go to your Mac. If you have a Mac, you can plug in your iPad, your neck. You can actually access file sharing from the Finder in mac. I won't go too much into detail because that involves having another computer. But while I'm on that note, on Mac and PC, you can actually download iTunes and then you can export to iTunes. So go like this, select their share picture here, and you can actually export to iTunes. So just click on iTunes there. And yeah, so you can actually share it to iTunes. And then in iTunes you can sync your iPad, your Mac, or PC, and via the cable. And yeah, you can then select the artwork in iTunes and import to your computer basically many options, of course, iPad. If you buy accessories for them. You can then plug in USB drives and different things. And so you can share to the file's app and then you can plug in your USB drive and then children computers. Oregon's eco yourself, there's many options for sharing and importing stuff like that. So that was what this video is all about. I hope it was very helpful to think of a watch. 15. File Types: Hello and welcome to another video. This video is going to be all about file types in procreate. So in procreate, you can import and export your work in a wide variety of formats. Yeah, so that's a nice feature of procreate. And like we showed you before, you just go to the actions button and then press add. And you can import or share and export. And there's a wide variety of file types, types that you can do this with. So every piece of art that you make and procreate is stored in its own unique file type called dot procreate. And that's a file format on your iPad. Or if you export it somewhere else, it can be just like a radio fire at exported. And the benefits of using procreates native file format. There's several benefits. Your artwork loads faster and it takes up less space on your iPad. A few years, the dot-product create file format. And then your dot procreate files are easy to share with other procreate artists, work together in teams or anything like that. And then another benefit of procreate files is that they are backed up automatically while you draw. So you really don't need to worry about losing your art. And then probably my second investor, whatever. Is that. The best feature? That is the second best feature and best features probably that backup, but the second best feature is probably the the, the dot procreate file format stores raw video data inside your image file so you can view and share the time-lapse replay of when you make your art. And we'll be talking about time-lapse. We already have, but we'll talk about those little better. Time-lapse replay, like a speed drawing type video, those are promptly on YouTube. But yeah, you procreate can also open and save files in many other formats though. So supportive file types, pretty much all the major file types. Of course there's the dot procreate file format, but there's also PSD dot PTSD, that is the Photoshop file format. And then of course, JPEG, PNG, tiff, and gifts. So yeah, file types, though, when you export them, you can share your artwork and all those types of file types that I just mentioned. But they're ALS also animated GIF, animated PNG and the animated MP4. So you could actually share a video, an mp4 format or a GIF, should it? Because now you can make animations in procreate. It's really cool. And there's also one more pro tip about file types. When you import a dot PSD file format, to procreate, it will preserve the locked layers. The layer grounds the compatible filters. So for some filters that are compatible with procreate blend modes and also the vector and text layers and things like this. Anyways, that is the last video in this section about the gallery and things like that for procreate. Thank you so much for watching. The next will be in the next group of videos. We'll be talking about brushes. Thanks much. 16. Brushes Overview: Welcome. This video is going to be about brushes, and it's an overview video of the brushes and the next few videos we'll be covering, I'll just kind of review will be covering in the next few videos. So we'll be talking all about brushes will, with brushes in procreate, you can sketch, you can ink, you can paint. You can even smudge and erase. And there's hundreds and hundreds of different brushes and procreate. You can create calligraphy, you can paint, and lots of stuff. But procreate has a nice system for organizing and storing your brushes. And you can also import new ones, like under the imported tab, different things, plus button there. And you can also share your brushes or sell them, know. So, yeah. In the next video after this, we'll have one about painting, smudging and erasing those three modes. So there's a lot of stuff you can do with painting, smudging, and erasing. And then we'll be also talking about in the video following that, about the brush library. And that's also the brush library for the smudging and erasing. And we'll also talk about the brush studio. So the brush Studio allows you to have a lot of customization of your brushes. So we'll learn about that. And then also there would be another video about brush studio. And how about the brush studio settings and adjustable attributes for procreate. Russia's a lot of stuff to cover. And then we're going to talk about dual brush. So that is where you take two individual procreate brushes, each with its own edible shape and stuff and combine them into one. Yeah, so dual brush, I'll be a video about that. And the lastly, there'll be a video about importing and sharing your brushes. So there's a lot of people that sell brushes. So there are some artists that you might follow you by their brushes and then you can import them. Or if you want to get real techie and learn how to make your own brushes or I'm sure over time you will do that. Can make your own brushes and you can just use them or you can share them with others or share the file and then sell them. So pretty lot's of opportunities. So thanks for watching. 17. Paint, Smudge, and Erase: Hello and welcome to another course video about learning procreate from scratch. And today we're gonna be using the Apple pencil or a stylus of your choice. But I'll be using the Apple pencil and we're going to be painting, smudging and erasing, learning about those three wonderful features. So you can start right away with your finger. But I'm going to be using Apple pencil. And I recommend outs Apple Pencil because it's nice. So let's do the basics. I'll pointed out here, there's painting. It's activated here. There's smudging that's activated here, and there's erasing and that's activated here. And they have brushed libraries and they're very essential tools for procreate. Yeah, so paints, mage, and race, they all share the same brush library. And they all work fairly similar. So just tap on paint, the one you want to use, and you can choose a brush to paint. So like procreate pencil, just choose it, chews it again to edit it. But you can choose a brush to paint with. And you can immediately start working as you wish with the procreate pencil. And with Apple Pencil. It works pretty well. But let's just undo those. And yeah, there's the brush library. So there's a lot of, a lot of options. So let's just fill and kind of show you what, what you have here. And then there's drawing. There was a lot of brushes that come pre-installed with procreate itself. And I'm just using black. But you can imagine, as you apply different colors, it can look pretty Noyce, very Noyce indeed. Procreate pencil, technical pencil. Those are two good ones for getting some sketches down. Undoing. Undoing those. Yeah. So with with a painting you can you can sketch, you can ink, you can paint, you can color, you can shade, you can texture. There's tons of things you can do with painting. And you can paint to add pigment to Canvas. So just yeah, topping the brush button there activates the painting and the Bush Library. And now so I encourage you to explore a lot this brush library. And so I'll just give a small example, procreate pencil. You can see here I'm drawing away. You can adjust in the left sidebar the size of the procreate pencil. So then let's try something else, like inking. Whatever. You can adjust the size so you know, you can see. The size really does make a difference. Or the transparency. There's a lot you can do is try to make it near invisible. And that's how watercolor brushes happen. Yeah. And then another thing you can do is you can try speed. So let's go ahead and erase all of these things. Undo all the actions. But yeah, with speed, you can see how speed really dabs it on there and then really going slowly. And it's what you might expect from an actual paintbrush. You know, could be. So, but different brushes respond differently to speed. So you can see it's kinda lightly going in there. And then speed really does, does affect it. But yeah, try try playing around with all the brushes and varying speed. And then of course, I showed you before there's actually tilt. Tilt does actually something that as well. And so you can see here, tilting is performed is basically like a regular pencil. So if you took a pencil and went right down on the paper, it would do something like that. But then if you went on a tilt, it would do something like this. So that's really nice. And then also there's pressure. So I'm doing very lightly stroke there as strong as they can stroke there because I'm always hesitant to press too hard on the iPad screen. But yeah. So later we'll talk about how you can tweak your settings of your brushes in the brush studio section of this course. But yeah, so that's paint. Now let's do some smudging. In order to do budgeting. I'm going to quickly lay down some some stuff. Whatever. There we go. Just some random marks there. But yeah, to get to smudge, of course you'll click on sludge. Looks like a finger because generally you can smudge with your finger with real traditional mediums. And smooth smudging really does help you blend your artwork. And it smooths out strokes and also helps you mix your colors. Basically smudging as a way to move your pigment around on your canvas. But yeah, and smudging has a Bush library, just like the paint tool as well. But, and smudging creates varying effects depending on the value of the opacity of the slider. So you can in the sidebar raise and lower the opacity to strengthen. So let's go and take a look so you can see I'm smudging away. And then let's take the opacity down. Almost doing nothing. And it's the light effect. But if you put a full capacity, it really does smudge a lot. And then of course, that's the size of the brush. Not always a good idea to have such a huge thing, but depending on what you want. So there's another thing about the smudge tool. It's high strength and low strength. High strength is well basically pressure of the Apple pencil. And when you smudge full pressure, right, smears color around like wet paint. Colors get messed up quickly and stuff like that. So let's actually do that a little bit. Let's put some red color in here. And then let's put some glue. And then some grin, basically just getting that in there. And now let's go back to smudge. And now full pressure, you can see I'm really mixing in the colors there. And of course there's tons of brush libraries. You can change the brush according to your desires. Gi, good brush, stuff. Change the size of the brush. You can really see it does mix in and see. It's just like regular painting. You can take colors, smudge it in. It's pretty nice. And I encourage you to play around a lot with the mini brushes available. But yeah. So another thing with the smudge breast is the low strength. And if you do very low strength, you can see here, it's not quite as violent as what I just did over there. It kinda smooth slowly, smoothly, smudges all that stuff. So it's what you might expect with irregular paint brush. And just take a dry brush and you can smudge things. But it also works for it will also works for regular pencil drawings as well. Just undoing all of that, take this back to black. Let's go back to sketching, procreate pencil and just draw here. And let's go to smudge. And let's actually do the round brush. And so go back to it, can actually take your finger. And it would work similar to regular finger on pencil drawing and stuff. And of course, to tweak it better, you can adjust your brushes and choose different pressures and things like that. Next, of course there is erase. Erase works, as you might imagine, paints away mistakes. Root removes pigments. And it also can work to carve out areas of transparency and it can soften your artwork. So there's a, a nice thing that you do when you're drawing like comic characters or something. If you lay down a foundation lines. So let's get rid of that. And so if you laid down the foundation lines, like a circle or something and you're just getting a circled on trying to get it nice and actually a circle. A lot of times people have a rough, rough construction lines. So you can see, as I do this, I'm trying to get the circle more and more like a circle. And then so with a eraser, you can then what to do as they call it soft erase. And you can see it's just software racing a little bit. And then I can go and add in the finer details. Of course, uh, procreate has a cheat, can do whatever you want. And then, like I showed you before in other videos, just hold and circle can. But yeah. Oh, and then you can press that and Edit Shape. So procreate as the nicest cheating factor to it compared to the truest national art. But within Erase tool, there's a blush, brush blush, there's a brush library as well. And you can choose a lot of brushes for the racing so that carving out of with transparency and softening your work can actually work well with all those brush options. And of course you can adjust the opacity and things of your. So if I didn't want my C Now while I'm soft erasing, it works a little bit better comparing if I had a full strength. So what was it like? 17% strength. They have to go over it several times. And it's basically like taking a real eraser in real life and just slightly going over a drawing versus really go. But yeah. Anyways, thank you so much for watching this video. That was all about painting, smudging and erasing and procreate. Bye. 18. Brush Library: Hello there and welcome to another video of learning procreate from scratch. In this video, we're gonna be learning about the brush library, and we've already talked about this, but, you know, that's the blush brush brush library, the blush. Now. So the brush library as a way for you to edit, organize, and share, um, a lot of brushes and broke rate. Yeah, and you can even make your own. But, so let's go over the interface here of the brush library. So the brush library is organized into themes. And the brush library offers hundreds of brushes and pretty much unless possibilities, tons and tons of options. So first of all, to basics, the brush button a very showed you the slot, but the brush button is indicated by the brush. It is the brush button right there. And yeah, it sits in the top and top right bar and the very left of that top right bar? Left, left, right? No. Okay. And all you have to do is tap it once to activate it. Not like the smudge where you have to tap it twice or the eraser worry of the tablet twice, the brush bar. You'll just have to tap it once to activate the brush library. Oh, and then of course I showed you there's a brush library technically under the smudge and under the Eraser tool as well. So those are nice. Yeah. And so right here we have the brush library. And the list of brushes sits right here in the left sidebar of the brushes and Bush Library. And you can just scroll up and down as you wish. There's a plus button here. I'll show you what that is. And yeah. But then in the right ear is the brushes, the right panel of a brush library. It's all the individual brushes that are available under the currently selected sketching brushes, inking brushes, drawing pressures and so on. Yeah. And then if you want to tweak your brushes, There is also a thing called brush studio and it's kinda settings type situation for each brush. And you can either edit your brushes or build new brushes in brush studio. And brush studios where you'll find all the settings to adjust your existing brushes and create new ones. So there's two ways to access it. You can just press the little plus button right here. And voila, you have the brush studio activated. And you can begin here making a new brush. Or you can press done there or you can see. So that's untitled brush. So let's go ahead and delete dot because that's yeah. And, but then there's another way to access brush studio. You can just so tapping on a brush will select it. But then if you tap it and then tap it again, that selects it under underbrush studio. And there you can edit your existing brush. Brush studio. It offers total control over every aspect of your brush. The shape, the grain, the behavior, the color of the responsiveness, the opacity to taper, and lots of things. So there's a hundreds of settings and options for that. So, but then it also has some nice default brushes. Procreate does so. If this is too much to actually don't have to even open brush studio. But there's a lot of people that like it and I'll have a video about brush studio later on. Okay. So here's a little pro, tip. Procreate remembers your settings. So you can switch between multiple brushes without losing the adjustments you've made along the way. So you can see here, this is full. But then when you go to peppermint, the left sidebar here is the brush size is halfway up. But the other brush, it remembers, remembers all our settings. That's a nice little thing about the brushes. And so yeah, here we have brush categories. There's 18 categories that come with procreate. And they're crafted to form like the core procreate brush library. And it's designed to sue every need, mostly every need anyways. So some procreates brushes are realistic. Some are like fantasy type stuff. But the idea behind these brushes is to give you a range of tools from practical to experimental. And anything in between, like just play around with a digital art. Lots of stuff you can do. So, yeah. So I'll just go from top, bottom, kinda explained sketching here, the Sketching tab. It's designed for practical drawing, planning, sketching, quirks, studies. These brochures mimic graphite pencils, technical pencils, pastels, and artistic crowns. And then there's inking here. So inking is ideal for cleaning up your, your artwork and drawing ink centric styles like. But anyways, these brushes include a variety of ink type brushes, technical pens, markers, gel pens, drying effects, stuff like that. And this comic inks is actually my custom brush set that I downloaded from someone. And then I've also edited some of them as well. So you probably won't see this, but it's a good example of how you can add your own brushes. And then drawing tab. Drawing as a set of core brushes and procreate. And this offers a range of rendering brushes for our artistic drawing. There's a versatile mix of wet and dry mediums and they're ideal for quick studies and also life drawing. And now on to painting. A painting is a really nice range of brushes and it's like a digital painting affects situation. So this selection of brushes covers mediums from acrylic to oil paints and stuff like that. And their behaviors range quite a bit. And yes, so there's aged brushes, oil brushes, turpentine, tons of stuff. And now Artistic. So artistic is like a texture based type brush. And Russia's offer artistic brushes. They offer a range of effects from watery type watercolor brushes to just texture type pressures. And then there's calligraphy. By the name suggests, just offers a wide range of calligraphy type brushes. And yeah, and then there's airbrushing. And airbrushing is really nice. It's kind of a classic thing for digital art. Airbrushing. If you ever have drawn and Photoshop. Airbrushing is kind of a thing for digital art. That's unique. Of course, you can have airbrushed and real life and traditional art, but airbrushing is super easy and digital art. Next there is textures. Textures are designed to lay down a large areas of texture fast. And this is a very versatile set. It offers realistic textures and also textures that mimic drawing surfaces. And also perfect type patterns. Victorian swirls and mathematical grids. Lots of stuff. And now there's abstract. Abstract is interesting. It's more of a playful set. It's sort of unusual for the procreate, but there's printer at pressure sensitive brushes that change color, grow larger, Great Smoky effects or generate chaotic shapes. It's more of a playful thing. Abstract. And charcoals, as the name suggests, is just a range of realistic chuckle brushes. And if you love tropical and real life, charcoal will be something you like as well. And then there's elements. Elements. So fantasy type brush, as you can even tell by looking at it. That drip driven snow. So there's snow, there's water. Chris, crystals, you know, it's more like a fantasy type thing. Yeah. Kinda more like it says elements. And then those spray paints. So it has a variety of brushes that mimic sprain. Yeah. And then touch ups. So touch ups quickly add fine details like hair stubble, noise and several skin textures, things like that. And vintage. So vintage ads arrange of retro textures and scattered design elements. And that our vintage inspired and illuminance luminance deals with things that deal with Light, Vivid Light effects. Things like sparkles and sparkles. And then there's industrial, industrial design to quickly add an industrial type, grunge texture type look to your art. And metal concretes tones don't click that. Organic. And yet organic has a natural type brushes. And there's grass, leaves, clay, things like that. And lastly, water. Yeah, so realistic watercolor brushes. So if you really like watercolor, This is the brush set for you. So let's learn more about the brush library basics and how you can create your own brushes and bursts sets, import sets created by others, and how to keep your organi library organized, and also how to share your precious. So the controls to manage and organize brush sets are essentially the same as the controls for managing individual bushes. So first of all, let's go over the add functionality. So right here, typically you don't see it, but if you drag down, you see this plus button right here. And this thing is a way for you to create a custom brush set. Yeah, and you can see the iOS keyboard pops up. And you can see, I've now named my custom brush set. So yeah. And it's indicated by the the procreate logo. If there's something with appropriate logo, it means it's a custom brush set. And yeah, but yeah, that's the custom brush set. So then let's talk about edit teen brushes. I'm just gonna go here tablet and delete that custom Russia for now. But yeah, I already showed you if you want to edit an existing brush and just tap on it, I get again to select it. You just tap on it and then tap on again to go to the brush studio. And I'll show you more about brush studio in a separate video and a special video for brush studio. But yeah, and then there's organizing. So you can actually organize by just tapping and moving it around. Like so. I kinda had my custom comic inks below the inking because that's kind of in gain comic and stuff like that. I could have put them in inking, but I kinda wanted the procreate core brushes to have to not change. But yeah, you can move multiple brushes or brush sets. So what you do is just click on one and then you can actually tab. And then, yeah, it can move multiple. So now I've just got things will disorganized to compare it to what I was used to. But now you can move things back. Believe drawing was there and painting. Anyway, so it doesn't matter. It's just there. But yeah, that's how you edit your move your buffers around. And then also here, if you just tap on it, There's some options here. You can rename it, you can delete it or share it or duplicate it. And yeah, so duplicating, it's nice. If you want to do that. Just because yeah, and then renaming is also good. Sharing those also really great, especially if you're to share your custom brushes, custom brush sets with users. So you can actually share an individual, but brush by just swiping left here, can share. But if you wanted to share the entire set, just tap on it there. And you know, a challenge here too. You don't have to, but if you wanted to edit your own brushes and you'll learn more about Rstudio and how to do that in coming video. But as you work with procreate, you will learn your style kind of and figure out how to edit your own brushes. And there you couldn't share it on forums. You can share it with friends or even better. You could sell them as a lot of people that so, but yeah, so next, you can actually, then on the same note, you could actually buy brushes or download them for free from people or get them from friends or whatever. And there's a lot of useful procreate brushes on the Internet. Just search and you'll find some. But now I'll talk to you about how you can add them. So in the brush library, just press the plus button up. That's actually for, for the okay. Brush button. There we go. So you just push the plus button and then you press Import. And you can then add your own brushes in the file's app. So what you wanna do is you wanna make sure you add your brushes into the files up. And whether you get them from online or an email or something, or through AirDrop or something. You wanna put them in your files app on your iPad. And then once they're in the files out, press the plus button, press Import. And then you can, you can import your brushes from there. So you can actually import single brush or you can import a set of brushes. But yeah, so that is, but brush library video for this course. Thank you so much for watching. 19. Brush Studio: Hello there. And in this video, we're going to be talking about the brush studio. We've already talked about brush studio in previous videos. And it's a place to edit your brushes. So brush studio, it offers a nice range of customization options. And the brush studio, can you make a lot of unique brushes with it? So like I showed you before, and the brush studio has settings for existing brushes. Just go to the brush tab and click on brush. And clicking on a brush, you can see you can bring up the settings for an existing brush up a bunch of untitled brushes here because it was demonstrating that in the last video. Go ahead and delete those. But as you can see, I have that. And then now you can press the plus button and that brings up a new brush. And of course, when we press plus, and it brings up the settings for the new brush. Now you can see two new untitled brushes. But if we wanted to edit the untold brush, just click on it. That's easy enough. So both options take you to the same brush studio interface. But there's a difference. One of them is where you import and make a new brush using the plus button. And the other is that you're editing an existing rush. So let's go over the interface here a little bit of, let's just make a new one so we don't damage Ginny existing ones that I have. So let's go over the interface. So this brush studio here. And so the brush studio is divided into three parts. The first one to the left, left sidebar here, it's called attributes. And in the middle here is called Settings. And here is called the drawing pad. Yeah, so let's first go from left to right. The attributes here. So this has just aspects of your brush that can be adjusted with a wide range of settings. Lots of just general things like stroke path, taper shaped grain rendering. These are just aspects of your brush. And of course, take another step to the right settings. You can edit all the citizens of that. But in here, the all of these, you can adjust the shape and the grain of your brushes. You can tweak the appearance of your brush stroke path and just tell procreate renders the end result. You can play with dynamics to sow brush, your brush responds to speed and how colors shift in response to input from your Apple pencil. And here you're gonna add wet. Mix to change the way your brush moves. Pigment around the canvas. And yeah, just to various tweaks that you can do. And yeah. So in each option here, so stroke path there, strokes properties, taper, pressure, taper settings, shape source, so stroke path, stroke properties. And this is the settings on the middle thing, the settings. And you can adjust multiple the settings of the attributes in each category, slider, whatever. Okay, when you select an attribute, the settings are there. And there'll be another video about more of this, RStudio sodium and sodium in the next video after this. But basically what I'm saying here is there's sliders and, you know, every slider in blush brush, blush brush can also be adjusted numerically. So see there's 25% and just tap the value here. And yeah, so that's not numerically so 15%. And yeah, you can just enter. So that's a nice thing and to have accuracy there. And you know, when you tap on the numerical value next to a slider, sum. Sum will allow you to attach the tilt and or pressure to the individual slider independently, offering extreme control over the behavior of that brush. So, yeah. Okay, so lastly, over on the right side is the drawing pad. And here is where you can preview your drawing drawing pad. So the drawing pad, it's a preview window as you can. And I messed it up here, but it's like a notepad and so 20% here. And you can clear the drawing pad here and change the colors and the previous size and stuff like that. And, and it's just a nice way. It gives you a place to preview and test your brushes and draw shapes and scribbles into it just to see how your brush response and as you change various settings. So you could literally just change that to 55% clear. And yeah, so it just changed. Here's the drawing here. And you can change the settings on the go. See that streamline. You definitely see the effect of that. Alright, so that is the brush studio. And so now I'm just going to explain a little bit about how brushes work. Let's see. I'm going to select procreate Pencil here. And procreate brush. It's, it's formed in of a shape containing a grain or a texture. And when you draw a stroke without brush, you are dragging that shape and that texture along a pathway. That's what's happening here. And you can set a taper on that pathway so that your stroke start thin like this. And then they get larger as they go. And they can reach full thickness and then taper off. So that's something we can demonstrate here with a 6B pencil is starts then gets thick and taper. So, so that's a taper. You can change the rendering to manage hell glaze or blended your brushstrokes appear. You can add wet mix attributes to mimic the behaviors of what media like paints. So I'm going to go to water here. And you can kinda see here of how that works. Wet glaze. And that's kind of mimicking the way water, I guess, would appear on the chemists. And you could also set color dynamics and that can create color effects. Only achievable in a digital workflow. So traditionally that cannot be achieved. So this can shift through different hue, saturation brightness based on the pressure and the tilt of your Apple pencil. So that's really cool thing. Going to clear the canvas here real quick. And you can also change the dynamics and you can set your, your brush to respond to speed and you can go, you can also make your brush kinda have randomness as it goes along those speed and stuff and that dynamics basically. And and then with your Apple Pencil settings, you can adjust the fundamentals of how the Apple pencil users uses pressure and tilt to interact with your brushes. And you can set limits on Brush behavior and how your brushes look in the library using the properties and, and, yeah, so that's that. So at times you may need to adjust a setting and find that something does not work with your brush. I suggest you just try tweaking settings. And if you'd find that it does not change, you should change the setting that is immediately around it. And sometimes that can cancel the other another. So you need to just, I just encourage you to play around with brush studio. Thanks so much for watching. 20. Brush Studio Settings: Hello there and welcome to another video of learning procreate from scratch. And today we're going to be learning about brush studio settings. And so brush studio settings, as we just learned about in the previous video. There's adjustable attributes for the procreate brushes and there's a lot of settings that it can offer. So I'm just gonna go through it one by one and explain it in detail here. So I'm just going to click on this untitled brush. Since it's nothing special, it's a new brush. So I will one by one and explain the stuff. So over here we have the tributes sidebar, which we explained in the last video. But there's a lot of attributes. So I'm gonna go over it one by one. So stroke path. So as you move your finger or Apple pencil across the screen, procreate creates a stroke by plotting many points along a path. Lake. So stroke path, that's what's happening. It's plotting at many points along a path. Clear drawing pad for now. So stroke properties. Let's learn about this a little more. Right here. This is the stroke properties. And here you can adjust the behavior of your stroke by changing, spacing, smoothing, jitter, and how quickly the stroke fades away. So let's talk about spacing. Spacing it sets how many times your brush shaped stamps itself along the path. So when you add a lot of space, you will begin to see the brush as a series of shapes along the path with gaps between them. If you reduce down to no space, the burst shaped belonged path will merge into one solid single stroke. So that's what's happening now. You can't really see the stamps of the shaping because it's one solid single stroke. But if we put spacing at max her now, oh yeah, you can just adjust it as we go. See you as you adjust it more and more, you can start to see the stamps of shapes there until it goes way out or completely full. So I think it was 17% or something like that. Let's go and clear drawing pad. Next down below that is called streamline. Now streamline, it automatically smooths out any wobbles or shakes in your line. Streamline is particularly important for inking and calligraphy. So what you wanna do is turn it up for a smooth and even result and turn it down for messy and natural look. So turn it up for this very smooth and nice look. You can even see it as it's plotting now. Pretty nice and smooth. And just turn it down. Let's clear drawing pad. Turn it way down to see a more messy-looking yeah. It's more like what it is now with an actual pencil or something. Whereas this is slightly cheating. It's using digital arts powers to plot the line a little more smoothly. But I think it was about 20% or something like that. So that's streamline. Next is jitter. Jitter. It takes up each stamp of your brush that you know the shape along the path. And if it offsets it, just buy a random amount. So you can just turn it off to keep all stamps perfectly lined up first with stroke. But you can turn it up a little to reduce the edge, rough in the edge of your brush, make it scatter the shapes. So let's go ahead and turn spacing up so we can see that a little more. And so this is quite amazing. And let's go ahead and turn it down. Drawing pads. So now you can see it's just offsetting. And this is especially something that's good if you're doing like a watercolor type brush. And that's how they work. Last doth there's fall-off. So when you start your stroke at full capacity and then faded away as it goes on, you just turn it off to have 0 fade, but turned out to have a fade. So let's turn it up. See, you started off full pasty and as you go, it fades off. So it actually kind of a falloff. Makes it work similar to a real paintbrush. There's only so much paint on a real paintbrush eventually fit. Fades away but just turn off, fall off if you do not. That feature. Anyways, that is stroke path. Now let's slowly continue on and look up all this taper. So the attribute taper, it tell you adjust your brush, changes the thickness in capacity at the beginning and the end of your stroke for natural tapered appearance. So there's a lot of settings here. Pressure taper, this is the settings, so let's go over it one by one. So here you can extend the taper at the beginning and the end of brushstrokes drawn with the Apple pencil. Strokes made with Apple Pencil generally use pressure to taper strokes naturally, just like pencils and paint brushes. But because the Apple pencil so sensitive, it can be tricky to achieve a nice long paper when lifting the pencil off the canvas at the end of stroke. So this is how using pressure taper kinda as nice. And you can artificially lengthened the existing tapers at the beginning and end of your strokes for more elegant line. So here is the pressure taper, slider, and even kinda shows what it's gonna do. It has a visual representation of how much artificial taper is at the beginning or the end of your stroke is you just pull the slider towards the middle to make the stroke taper longer. And you can set the taper at the beginning stroke or the end or both. So now let's look at, so, well, let's look at what it does. There we go size. Now you can see the taper is kinda working there. Anyways. Let's go on. So let's look at link tip sizes. So what does that link tip sizes? When this is switched on, adjusting one side of the pressure taper will automatically adjusts the other side. So let's actually look at that. So as we have just one side of a, just the other side if you want to link both tip sizes. And next is size. This is how severely your taper transitions from thick to thin. So right here, the sizes none. So it's normal. Whereas if you put the taper on MAX and you actually have to turn some taper on. But yeah, so that's now you can see extreme tapers there. So that's the size, that's what I'm going to leave it on like 50%. That way we can actually see the taper as we demonstrate it and capacities, how your taper fades to transparency at the end. So let's go ahead and put this on it like 50%. And this will adjust the opacity. Just go put this sooner. And how it fades in the beginning or the end. Let's put the max. Now you can see a bit of opacity as the taper begins and ends and vices. And now pressure. So here, the pressure, you can use the pressure feedback on the Apple pencil to have a more responsive and natural taper. So that's already max and put the pressure all the way. And then I light pressure, strong pressure. So you could actually turn that down if you wish, less pressure to be involved, but pressure's good. Why not use the technology? And now the tip. On low settings, this makes your stroke type or behave as though you can use a brush with an extremely fine tip. But on high settings or taper responses though, drawn with a brush that has a chunky thick tip. So now you can see it's blunt. And here it's sharp. Noyce. And now tip animation. Tip animation is when procreate applies extra taper to your stroke. And you can toggle the switch on to see the effect being applied or toggle it off to hide the automation depending on your preference. So just turn off. See you this without the animation just kinda puts there, but the tip animation makes it little more smooth and realistic looking. Now I guess the only reason it turned off, maybe if you had an iPad that couldn't process the animation. But yeah, alright. Now let's look at touch taper. Touched taper is, instead of using well, it's what it is is that adds taper to the beginning and end of a brush stroke, drawn with a finger instead of your Apple pencil. So set the Apple pencil Assad and use the finger. And so you can, when you paint with your finger, you can see now with the Apple pencil, it's actually using the taper, but with a finger, it's not. So let's add some all the same settings. All 1's turn blend all the way down. And now your finger is working. So that's touched paper. It's the same as all the others. It's just we'd have finger. Alright. Now, taper properties, let's look at type of properties here. Classic taper, on or off. So classic taper, its the way procreate renders a taper. And it has been updated since the older version. So you can actually turn on classic taper to see the older result. So if you like the classic taper, you know, you can see there's some different drawing effects with the classic versus the new updated. A lot. Anyway. Now let's look at the attribute shape. So shape is interesting. And you can change the shape of the tip of your bash by importing an image into your shape source and adjust the scatter rotation frequency written and other properties of your shape. Procreate brushes are formed over shape container. Right now you can see it is totally circle. And you can press Import and basically import a picture to be the stamp of your, your brush. But that's too much fiddle right now. But if you want to add a new shape to your brush and press edit, press Import. And you can import just a picture or something like that. And that would be the new shape of your brush. And you can see the shape of any brush clearly when you tap your finger Apple pencil on the canvas, just tap it. And there is because there's taper stuff going on. But if you tap it, that's the shape. See right there. The shape is circle. Ais. That's a shape. And OK, so now let's look at the shape behavior. The shape source we already talked about. Now let's look at shape behavior. You can change the behavior of your individual stamps of the brush shape within your stroke. Stroke is formed by stamping like I talked to you about. And the best shape. It gets damped over and over again along a path. But then there are many different ways the shape, same shape can be stamped, it can be rotated randomized stamped on the ones that each point or taught to follow the movement of the Apple pencil as it turns corners. So nice to see these go back to stroke path. But anyway, let's talk about scatter. So by default your shape will stamp in the same direction without rotating. But you can use scatter to randomize how it is rotated each time it is stamped. So let's look at scatter. Yeah. Anyways, let's turn off scatter. Berkshire not seen much going off here. But this is if you had, this is just a circle. But now let's look at rotation. And that can't really be seen because it's also just a circle. But yeah, well, rotation at just the rotation of your shape in relation to the direction of your stroke. When set in the middle, you're shaped direction will remain static no matter which way you're stroke travels, you can set to 100%. And the hand side of the site or your shape will rotate to the, follow the rotation of your stroke set to negative 100%. And that your stroke will inversely be rotate inversely and the direction of your stroke. Now let's look at count. Count is you can set the shape to stamp more than once at each point, creating up to 16 stamps at each time. You can see the effect of this most easily in combination with scatter. As each of the multiple stamps and a given point will be randomly rotated in different directions. So I can't really see that with a circle. But if you add it in your own image source, that was a unique image, you could see that it really does well, let's demonstrate that here. Let's go to the brush library and look at MAD splashes. So you can see how that works. But yeah, let's go back to the comic linking, back to brush settings, shape. Anyway. Oops, there we go. All right. Now let's look at count dinner. Count jitter, and vary the number of times the stamp applies. At a point, if you have your account gender set to five, you'll randomly get between one to five instances of that stamp at each point. And then randomized here. If you tick, randomized on, what randomised does is it randomizes the rotation of your shape when your stroke begins. And this has the effect of making each stroke different from the one before it created any unique organic feel. And yeah. And then this one, I can't really pronounce it as z or something as the most astronauts. So what it does is it detects the radius of the apple pencils tilt as it travels through its stroke. Determine which way the shape stamp should tilt. This creates an effect like a calligraphy pen. And so azimuth overwrites rotation, but only for stroke drawn or the apple crop up pencil. So I don't really see the effect, but I explain it. Well, this can't be seen because I'm using that circle and flip. X and Y can also be seen, but it flips the shape horizontally or vertically to create more OK, organic effects. Okay. Now let's look at this brush roundness graph. This changes the base rotation of a shaped by dragging the green node around the circle. And this will make no difference because we're just having a circle shape. But as you can see, it's important to import your own custom shapes to see what goes on. And then pressure roundness. It can squash your shape boss based on how much pressure you apply with your Apple pencil. Saw that. And then tilt roundness here in squash your shaped based on how much tilt you apply to your Yes. So there's tilt, roundness. And now almost done shaped filtering can shape filter. The shape filtering adjusts anti aliasing, and this is how your shape edges are handled by the graphics engine. So it's clear this again. So no filtering. There's not soften the edges. There's just no filtering. It does not soften the edges. And this may, of course look more jagged. Does not show soften the edges as you can actually see. Classic filtering. Classic filtering softens the edges of your shape using the settings from earlier versions of procreate. And then improve filtering uses the filtering engines of newer versions from procreate. Anyway. So that's that. Now let's move on to grain and talk a long time about this. So the attribute grain with grain is, is you can create a new grain from any image from the powerful grain editor. And you can adjust whether the grain stays still behind her stroke or moves along with it. And you can tweak scale, depth, blend, node and more. So just Groups, Edit. And you can import your own textures or grains. And so, yeah, that's, I'm not going to demonstrate this. I'm going to for the sake of time, just quickly tell you this. So already talked to you about the green source, press Edit, embrace, import. But now let's look at grain behavior. So here the screen behavior, it changes its behavior of the grain side, your shape, brush, texture, eyes are moving. Ok. and so you can see there's different settings that show up. But now let's talk about moving. Moving. You can set your grade to move with the stroke for more streaky and blurred effect. And then textualized here. You can set your grain to stay as a static texture. Behind your brush stroke. Lead some water. All right, so let's look at movement. So movement is where you can lower the even set the site are too low for more drag smeared effect and high for a rolling effect similar to text dries setting and scale, I can adjust the size of the grain texture inside your shape. Zoom. This is to set a crop to keep the texture size fixed. And no matter how large or small your make your brush while painting, you can set to follow size and the grain will scale along with your brush size. The setting was only available when grain is set to moving. And then rotation. This will smear the grain image based on directional stroke changes creating a similar effect to movie. At now, depth, let's talk about depth a little. So depth is how you adjust, how strongly the texture establishes itself over the base color of your brush. And then depth minimum. You can set a minimum level of contrast in the texture beyond which the brush can't go regardless of how much or a little pressure is applied. A depth jitter, randomly swing between texture and the underlying color of your brush. And now offset, jitter. Right here, you can turn on or off. And offset is where your textures placed down each time you make a new brush stroke to create more organic growth effect. And blend mode multiplies and multiply. Um, but you can click here. And this is the Blend Modes. Encourage you to play around with this. For the sake of time, I'm kind of going passes green because it's a big section here. But yeah. And anyways, so there's a lot of textures you can import to the grain source and then you can adjust them. And this drawing pad is so useful to play around with those textures and things that I encourage you to play around with grain and all your textures stuff. Now let's look at rendering. So procreate offers a number of ways to render the brush to the screen. And you can go under the hood to adjust render modes and change the way strokes and colours behave on your brush and when, when they're interacting on your chemist. So rendering mode, procreate gives you full control over how the underlying software renders your brush strokes and how brushstrokes interact with each other. These effects can be understood by imagining physical paint on canvas. So on the light rendering end of the spectrum, light picked glaze, right? You can see It's like laying down a light-colored like basically opacity is turned up or something. And then there's intense bleeding. And intense bleeding is more like ln thick paint onto a campus. But yeah, so many options for that. So I'm gonna go through light glaze. Standard blending mode is like a glaze, uniform glaze. A uniform glaze is actually the rendering mode similar to what photoshop uses. Intents glaze. This mode, bashes colors on the screen was heavier touch, heavy glaze, extremely strong blending mode, and then uniform blending. So this combines the Photoshop style of running with the approach to render and color. Kind of a wet mix effects or somebody. And now intense bleeding. The heaviest mode offered, tense bleeding is great for wet brushes that smash and mixed codes together and exaggerates the wet mix effect. Gonna go back to intense glade. And now let's talk about blending. Blending is where you select from a variety of options to adjust the way your stroke interacts, how pigment dilute, dilutes, and how colors mix into each other. You can adjust the flow of your brush and create the effect of what edges, burnt edges and more. So flow is, there's, you can see it's flowing quite well. Edges are just how heavily color and texture flows from your brush onto the canvas. And then let's turn on wet edges. Now you can see the edges of the circle are almost like they're wet or something. And now let's turn the burnt edges. And this can be seen better if it was not a circle but makes a burnt edge stuff. And here you can adjust the burnt edge mode, the blend mode, and luminance blending. Luminance blending mode is typically affects color values of brushstrokes. Flip this toggle to blend the lateness values instead. And now let's look at wet mix. This is how you tweak your, how your brush interacts with color and how the colour you lay down interacts with the canvas. So here you can dilute the pigment of your Bush. Started out with a lot of paint on the brush or only a little and make your pigment bleed into other colors or pull them around. And there's fine adjustments to the interplay of dilution, tack and charge. You can be layered on top of other settings to create brushes with highly realistic behaviors. So dilution. Yeah, on max there. Okay. Very interesting. So what this stuff is sets how much water is mixed into the paint I brush and increase, increasing dilution to give your paint more transparent vect, and then charge. This is a bit of a doozy boots learn about. You can set how much paint is applied to your brush when you begin a stroke. Alright? And like a real paintbrush, the longer you drag your stroke out, the more paint will leave behind on the canvas. As the brush runs out of paint, the tail of the color leaves will become less intense. Recharge your brush by ending stroke and Latino off the canvas and then putting it down again. So yeah, that's what charges 50%, whatever. And now attack, you could attack is where you can adjust the amount of paint that sticks to canvas. Set it high for the parents of thick bold paint applied evenly along your whole stroke. Yeah. It's clear that alright, and then pull, pulls, how strong they are. Brush pulls, paint across the canvas, including paint that has already been laid down. This is a great way to organically mix and drag colors route and then grade. You could set the drunkenness and contrast of your brush texture. And then witnessed jitter. I randomly vary how much water mixes in with paint at any point during the brush stroke for more realistic effect. Now color dynamics. I'm going to just kind of summarize this section. Cause this video is going to be a long time, but if I keep on going from each thing, so colored dynamics, basically, you can unlock the power of digital art by setting your brush to change color, saturation, brightness, and more based on the pressure until you apply it to your Apple pencil. So color dynamics, it gives you the ability to have your brush shift through different values of hue, saturation, lightness and darkness. And you can also choose a secondary color. And you can shift the pain. Your primary and secondary color with each stroke. Can use all these settings individually or in combination and control them in a variety of ways. Anyway. So that is all of that color dynamics. And I encourage you to play around with color dynamics. It's amazing. And now Dynamics attribute. You can set your brush to make dynamic changes based on how fast you make strokes. And now the little unpredictability to brush by setting your brush to jitter. So let's go this one by one speed. This is the setting speed and then jitter. So you can use your speed to determine the appearance, size. You can use the speed of your strokes changes size, draw slowly for a thin stroke and faster for or vice versa. So let's turn this up. Sizes bigger when you lay down and less and vice versus small, large. So that's size. And opacity kinda works the same way and lets clear the drawing pad. Starts out with a pasty and vice-versa and with opacity. That, and that's also based on speed. And then Jitter. This setting is random and it is not affected by speed. And the size. It randomly alters the size of your stamp. Yes. So you can see now, let's randomize and then random or also the pasty. So that's quite the effects that can be done there. Now let's move on to Apple Pencil. Lots of settings here. Here you can make fine adjustments to how the Apple pencil interacts with your brush. You can set the pressure, the tilt to affect fundamental behaviors of your brush like size of pasty flow, bleeding, smoothing and more. And now pressure, tilt, Those are the two options here. So here you can tweak the way the Apple pencil response to pressure. These Apple Pencil Pressure settings have a trickle-down effect on how other pressure based adjustments interacts. So size here can adjust how large or small the tip you for your brush becomes under varying pressure. So here it gets larger if you put pressure down, and here it gets smaller if you put pressure down, kinda auto effect, but generally it's larger if you put pressured home. And then same with capacity, you can adjust the transparent to opaque range of your pressure under varying pressure. C, so it's light and then pressure is full. Whereas if I turn it off, it's always full. And then, now flow. Here's how you can adjust how much paint your brush lays down under varying pressure. So let's put this all the way up. See you, so light pressure, almost nothing, and vice versa. It's full with light pressure. And when I press you're on, it's nothing. So either way. And then bleed and just tell heavily your brush bleeds into the canvas around the edges under varying pressure. Smoothing is, you can adjust tile smoothing. Your brush transitions from low pressure to high pressure. This is essentially streamline. We talked about before. But it's for pressure. And you could set the slider high and pressure transitions will be extremely smooth. You can also set the slider to nothing and the brush will express very every bit of Rob pressure data it receives. So smoothing. Anyway, so at smoothing. And now response, last bit for pressure. Response is how you adjust how faster Apple Pencil responds to variations in pressure. You can push the slider all the way up to get a smooth result. I'm perfect for finding quirk. Let's put it all away and put all the way down. Anyway. So who was about 30% clear patrolling. And now tilt surely know what Tilt is, but still is how you can tweak the way your Apple Pencil response to being tilted. The Apple pencil tilt setting has a trickle-down effect on all other tilt based adjustments. You can tilt your Apple pencil through range of 90 degrees. Pencil held completely upright is 90 degrees and then 0 the greys as if it's held like this. So you can use the tilt graph to set the trigger point. And so a degree of tilt at which an attribute of your brush suddenly changes to something else. If you set the graph to 45 degrees, all their tilt based features will be triggered only once your brushes on an angle 45 degrees. So anyways, that's going to, so this is like pretty sure this night nine degrees. And that's what will trigger. Yes. So that's, that's tilt. So let's quickly go over this stuff. Opacity, you know what that is? Gradation. You turn this slider up to create a softening effect when shading was a brush on an angle. So let's turn it up. See so upgradation, radiation, whether we call it that's how that is affected. If you turned all the way up and bleed. And this is how much the brush bleeds around the edges when tilted, creating a reduction in fine detail and size. It just the effect of tilt on the brush thickness. And then size compression toggle on to prevent the texture within the brush growing along with brush size. And now properties. Here you can just adjust miscellaneous things that establish Harlow brush looks and preview. Yeah, so and how it behaves with the procreate interface. And sorry, I encourage you to play around with that. I would go over this stamp preview. It can, you can turn that on or off. Stamp piu view is the preview each brush, brush library, it is usually expressed as a stroke. So this is what it could look like, but I'm going to clear that. And that's what's tamp preview. And oriented screen is when a brush has a distinct up and down, this toggle sets whether it is expressed itself the same way regardless of current Screen rotation or whether it rotates along the interface. Preview here. So it sets the size of the stroke or shape stamp in a preview of this brush as it appears in the brush library. Smudge is how forcefully this brush smudges when set as a smudge tool. Noice Push behavior. I'm just going to summarize this section. Brush braver sets the size and capacity boundaries on your brush. The settings can control the, the upper and lower limits of the brush size and opacity sliders in the procreate sidebar. All right, and lastly about this brush. This is where you can edit details. You can sign your name to your custom brushes and add a profile photo so your work will always be credited. You can reset brushes back to V8 defaults and create new reset points. So you can experiment on a brush without worrying about losing your favorite settings. So this is a nice way to just to sign your brushes. And I encourage you to go through this brush studio thoroughly. This video is long, but it barely scratch the surface and encourage you to play around with brush studio Said's. And you could actually waste a lot of time in here. But there could be some great results. There's some unique brushes that no one else ever thought of before can happen from this. It's pretty awesome. So thanks for watching and good day. 21. Dual Brush: Hello and welcome to another video. This video is going to be about dual brush. And dual brush is simply a way that you take to individual procreate brushes, each with their own edible shapes and grain. And you combine them into one with the transformative feature that allows you to create almost lewd to this new brushstroke effects. So we're going to talk about combining brushes. So you can select combined edit, blend and uncombined dual brushes. So let's first tap the brush button here. And we have the brush library open. And let's find toothbrushes that we want to combine. So I'm actually going to take the untitled brush, just the default one. And this custom brush here, I'm actually going to duplicate it that way. I don't ruin the existing one. And then here's sort of a tip here. Russia's must be in the same brush set in order to combine. So you can't combine brushes from different presets. You can only combine single brushes. Dual brushes cannot be combined. So if you're already combined and they are dual brush that cannot be combined further. And you can also not combine default procreate brushes, but you can duplicate them and then combine them. So anyways, so what you wanna do first is tab and select a primary brush. And that's now primary. You can see it's selected. And so, oops. And now you just swipe and selected the secondary brush indicated by the darker blue. The lighter blue was a primary. Darker blue is the secondary. And you just swipe right to make it the secondary brush. But then you can see the word combine will appear at the top here. Could also delete them if you wish, but the word combine. So just tap it. And now you can see those two brushes have min combined. And they have merged the two brushes into one new brush that has the qualities of both. And a new dual brush will take on the name of the primary brush, the untitled brush. So that's something you want to keep in mind. But then you can tap it, of course. And you can see here that we have the combined the brushes for primary and secondary. Alright, so now let's talk about editing it. You can change the look of your dual brush by editing the component pressures. So you can tap your dual brush to enter brush studio. This is the dual brush. And there's not really any way to see that this is a dual brush or the topping it. And now you can see that it's a dual brush. Whereas here you're gonna tap it and doesn't show that it's a dual brush up there in the top left. You can edit the settings and each brush independently. In tap one you want to edit, or you can top the other. Indicated by the little blue marker on the left, showing you which brush is selected. And any, any edits you make apply to the selected brush. And now let's click on here or tap that. And yeah, so this is combined mode right here. And you can change the look of your dual brush by adjusting how the brush blend mode blends together. And same way that changing a layer blend mode changes how two layers mix together. Changing the combined mode of your dual brush can result in interesting visual remixes. So you're going to tap your dual brush. Well, let's go back to square one chapter dual brush to enter brush studio, and then tap your brush there. Let's preview and then you can press combined mode. And so by default, combine mode is set to normal. And yeah, anyways, I'll talk more about Blend Modes later. But nevertheless, that is the Blend Mode stuff. But yeah. Next let's learn about how to uncombined. Tough. So we can revert are dual brush back to two separate brushes. So from the beginning, top on our dual brush, and you can enter a brush studio here. And on the top left you see here brush studio interface and you have the preview of the toothbrushes tap on either of them. And then tap on the secondary brush, not the primary, but the secondary. And then top it again and you can see the word uncombined. You just press that, press on combined and now it's back to square one. Anyways, that is how you combine two brushes and procreate to individual program brushes, each with its own editable shape and grain combine into one that merge their qualities together. Anyways, that's, that's dual brush. It's, it's actually really nice because if you like to different brushes and you want to combine them, it's easy. Just do that. Anyways. Thanks for watching. 22. Importing Brushes: Hello there and welcome to another video of learning procreate from scratch. In this video, we are going to be learning about how to import and share your brushes. So this is the last video of the brushes section of videos. And in the next section of videos, I'll talk to you about what we're going to do, their colors, that's a hint. But now importing and exporting brushes. This allows you to give and receive unique brushes, either by giving it a chariot or selling other people are receiving from other people or buying from other people the brushes. So procreate is very nice in that there is a dot brush file, and that's the procreate brush file. You can import the dot brush file, but also you can import the ABR file, which is the Photoshop brush file. And you can import both of those into procreate. So that's very useful because there's a lot of, nowadays, there's a lot of procreate brushes online. You can download for free or by Lada unique brushes, but sometimes you run along a bunch of Photoshop brushes for sale that are really awesome. And Photoshop has been around for a long time. So there's a lot of brushes, Photoshop brushes. Sometimes they're available and you're like, man, I wish this worked for procreate. Well, it does. So ta-da. Anyway, So next to import the brush, you can do is just press the brush button and then you can press the plus button brush library. And then years brush studio, we spent a lot of time in this section of the app in recent video. And then, yeah, so personally Import button up here and you can go ahead and import a brush. Okay, so yeah, we imported a brush here. And that's how you import a brush. Another thing that you can do, well, I'll show you that later. So another thing is say someone emailed you their brush file, either the dot brush file or the ABR file. Say it's an email or something like that, you can actually tap and drag it into procreate. And yeah, and if you do that, it will be put into the imported there. Now, quickly delete this because I'm going to show you this later. Okay? Now I'm going to drag and drop here, kind of demonstrate this. So I'm going to open up the files up here. Okay. I need to show you the files up. Let me go bring it bring it. There we go. And here's our files out. And now you can actually click and drag it into the files up. So you can drag in and out and clicking or tapping and dragging is another option for you to do. It's very nice. So I showed you how to just press the plus button. You can choose it from the files out by pressing buttons or you can tap and drag. So that's very nice. So another thing I would like to show you is in the brush sets sidebar here, just drag that down a bit and then you can press the plus button. And let's press or name it new set. And yeah, you can organize them, drag them around if you wish. And now we have our new set. And of course, you can rename it, delete it, share it. So sharing us another way to export all your brushes in that set or duplicated. Lastly, let's take and take from imported the brushes. And you can actually tap more than one. And you hold them, you're dragging them and drag them over until you see. The new set is selected by the blue icon and you just drag them in there. So now, now those custom brushes that we have there are put into the new set. And that is importing and sharing and editing or moving around your brushes a little bit and brush library once you have them imported and stuff. So thanks so much for watching all these videos about brushes. Brushes are amazing and procreate and they allow you to do a lot. 23. Colors Overview: Hello there and welcome to another video. This video is going to be about colors and colors that are amazing. In procreate. You can select, you can adjust and you can harmonize your colors in your art with a lot of different interface options to suit your workflow. You can drag and drop your color into your art. That's a unique, wonderful thing about procreate can save, import, and share many colors that you like to work with. And you can let harmony suggests complimentary colors to suit the mood of your piece. So in the next few videos, we'll be talking about the interface of the colors here. Couldn't see, here's the interface of colors. Procreate offers multiple color interfaces here. Oops. And tons of options as far as that. Okay. Yeah. And you have a variety of ways to choose, save, and adjust your colors. So this is the disc will be, will have a video about the, the disc. This is a nice new way and procreate. You can choose your colors and then there'll be one about classic. This is a traditional approach. But yeah, anyways, we will talk about the classic one. That's what we have selected here. This is more a traditional approach to digital color. And it's just the classic. And then there's harmony. Yeah, some of these can look a little complex when you first look at them. But you can supercharge your art with the power of color, theory and harmony builds instant complimentary colors and stuff like that. And then there's value. Value is a way you can replicate exact colors using precision sliders, hue saturation, brightness, red, green, blue, etc. And then there's pallets, pellets here. You can store your colors as pallets, your favorite colors, and the pallets, you can store them as swatches. And then you can create an import. Lots of pallets and Swatches that you could actually share with other people or important the ones other people have shared. Anyways, and then there's profiles. You can create art with color profiles designed to achieve the best results on your screen or in print. And anyways, that's what we will be talking about in the next few videos, all about colors. 24. Colors Interface: Hello there. This is a video about the interface of colors. So procreate offers multiple color interfaces and we're going to explore them. Each interface can be tailored to suit the way you work. Giving it gives you a variety of ways to choose, save, and adjust your colors. So first, let's go over the colour panel. The colour panel is where you choose Modify and save colors. So number one, color button that is right here in the top. The very top right is the color button. And that's how you invoke the colors. Okay? And then the next is here. It's called Active Color. Right here. This is the act of color. And so we could actually change that tells like red or something. And so the act of color is red. And then here the is changed the secondary color to green, active secondary. And it's fairly common for digital stuff to digital art application to have a primary and secondary colour. And down below this is history. So here you can see there's a black because we just dealt with black as the color. It's saving that in the history. So let's change this to read. Let's put something on the canvas. And I can see the history is read. Now let's change it to blue a little. And now the history is blue and the history will just populate, or you could clear at all as well. But let's go ahead and get rid of undo all that. Clear that. And yeah, history is nice. And it just keeps track of your colours in place in case you wished to go back to some of the colors that you just used and you changed, then you like the color. So the History tab is nice or you can clear it right there. Alright, so then there's also a default pellet at the bottom of the colour panel. The current default palette is displayed. And you can change the default palette in the pallets tab. So default is actually, there's nothing going on because we haven't edited it much. Um, but you can put colors in here for your default palette. There we go. And you could adjust what you wish. So you could put like a red, they're blue, they're green, they're light blue there. And so on. You can, you can adjust your palate as you wish. So here in procreate, you have a number of different ways to explore and select your colors. So when you first open the colour panel, like we just did, you can see the color disk. Selected and that's the default way. And the below options are explored. Let's explore them. So the color disk we have open right now, and it offers an outer Hue Ring around an inner zoomable saturation disk, allowing for fine touch and control over your color selection. So this is the hue, the outer hue. And then there's zoomable saturation disk. Fairly nice, I think. Next let's take a look at classic. This is more of a traditional tae kwon color selection and offers hue, saturation and brightness. So this is whew, this is saturation and this is brightness. And yeah, there's just more traditional approach, kind of a standard square color picker. And now let's look at harmony. And harmony gives you the pleasing color suggestions based on your currently selected color. So you can see complimentary colors. And you can actually click on complimentary here and you can change. So this is really useful. I remember in the past, having to look up a website to find these, these ways, to find complimentary colors and stuff. But harmony is a very useful tool. Procreate, you will love it, I'm sure. And now let's look at value. Disappeared, no value. Okay. So Valley offers precision sliding along the innumerable coal and hexadecimal values for exact color matching. So hexadecimal, if you, I'm sure you know what that is. But this is the number, basically a number for the color. You can enter it right there if you wish, or the color value or RGB. So if you find a color online, you can actually enter the values there in the Values tab. So that now there's pilots and you could have lots of pallets here. Pallets gives you access to a set of color swatches. So these are color swatches. Procreate includes several standard pallets you can, but you can also import palettes and you can create your own. And the current default palette is displayed at the bottom of the above. The color modes that we have just talked about. So the default palette. And then you can also set default pallets. So you can just set default. But anyway. But yeah, and it's pretty nice you can switch to any of these modes just in this little tab bar here. And yeah. There's actually a thing called a color companion and new feature and procreate. It's really nice. And you can take your color panel with you. So here we have our disk. So you can actually just take it and drag it along. And you can actually take your color panel, just move it around where your wish. And so say yeah, just it can be a permanent little window there if you wish. It's pretty nice. But if you wish for your color panel to go back to normal, just click that little X button and it will go back there. And there's the back to the normal color. And now let's talk about the color button a little bit. So in the top right, there's the color button. And it displays your act of color. Act of colours red. And you can actually press and hold it to switch between your current and your previous color. So you can see here pressing and holding it switches between the primary and the secondary color so that primary and secondary colour. So now primary, secondary The same but switching the whole idea is pretty nice. You can also switch between primary and secondary, but just tapping them. But if you don't have your color panel up, you can just switch and hold, tap and hold or whatever. Yeah, so that's nice. But color also, this little color button has a nice feature called Color drop. Just track top and drag it. I'm going to undo that. Just tap it, drag it, and you can do a color drop. Colored drop is amazing. And it's a speedy way for color drop. Now I'm going to talk to about something here. Let's go ahead and go to inking. And let's take this technical pen. And we're going to go ahead and make a circle. But you can see here it's not quite and connected. And so you can see here as we go back to the red colour, colour drop, it does not. But what you can do is you can actually take the color drop while keeping on holding it. And okay, so that didn't work because it's too close. Let's try something a little closer. Generally about that much. So generally, colour can quickly get out there. Let's try taking the red colour and colour dropping in now. And you can say the hold and code drop threshold is what it's called. And yeah, colored drop threshold, I highly suggest that feature. It is awesome. And now I'm going to undo all that. But okay. We talked about colour dropping, colour drop threshold. And now let's talk about the eye dropper. So you can actually instantly sample a new color from anywhere on your canvas. So to actually show that you need to have some colors. Okay? So to incidently sample codes, just press on this little Modify Button unless you edited it previously, like we talked about, but the Modify button activates the eyedropper and then you can drag the eye dropper round and it will I drop onto a color. And now you can see the color has been selected. So I dropped her onto the White. I dropped her into the white and you can see now white has been selected. So that's how the eye dropper works. So there's actually options you can go to preferences are the actions preferences rather. And then you can actually press gesture controls and then go to eyedropper. It has to be dropped. Well, you it's Yeah. So right now it has a tapping. The Modify button will activate or dismiss eyedropper. You can choose which options you want there to activate or dismiss the eyedropper tool. Anyways, that is all about the interface of colors in procreate. Thank you so much for watching. 25. Color Disc: Hello. Today we are going to be talking about the color disk feature. We've talked already about a bunch of color snuff, and we already talked about the colored disk. But now we're gonna be talking only about the colored disk. So yeah, on the right-hand side, you have the color button right here. And that activates the colour panel like we saw. And by default, the color disk is what shows up here. And so in the colored disk, there is a Hue Ring. This color going around this ring. This is called the Hue Ring. And then this is called the saturation disk. So the colored disk consists of these two things. A saturation disc and the Hue Ring. Each contains a radical and clear circle. You can slide around to rest on your chosen color. You can choose your base color in the Hue Ring. And then you can adjust how light and dark or how saturated it is in this saturation disk. Yeah. So then up to the top right here, there is actually a primary color and a secondary color. So you can click on the secondary and primary color. And so that's nice to have that. And once you're happy with your chosen color, you can tap outside of the colour panel to make it go away. And then you can just hold the color to switch between primary and secondary. Now, for fine color control, there's a trick. So when you've found the perfect queue, first step is to found the perfect, find the perfect Hughes who read or whatever. We found our perfect view. And now what you can do is you can actually zoom in to the saturation disk and zoom out, zoom in, and zoom in and just gives you a tad more control to see more there. So that's nice. So yeah, there's also thing called snapping with the saturation disk. It's really handy and you get, can get the pure value easily. So say we wanted the pure red, just double-tap pure white. And you can see you put your finger here but then you're double tap and it goes to there. If you go to the middle double-tap, it goes to o, but little bit double-tap. And it will go to kinda snap to the pure value, double-tap to the red and even the corners here. So that's a handy little thing. Anyway. So that's kind of actually approved feature double tapping to snap to the perfect color lights, that is the colored disk. Thank you so much for watching. It's very useful and it's my preference choosing colors. Next videos, we'll talk about classic harmony value and the rest. Thank you for watching. 26. Classic Color Panel: Hello there, welcome to another video. This will be the procreate video about the classic color panel. So the classic is for more of a traditional approach to digital color. The first type of color panels that were used for digital art. And it's a classic color picker with hue, saturation and brightness sliders. So to get to the classic, just click the color button and then top right, right here. And click Classic. And there you have it. We have our classic. Yep. So that's the classic tab. And procreate actually remember your preferences for the future. So when you go back, it will remember that was on disk or classic or something. So yeah, it's kinda like what you wish. So classic color will be, this will be familiar to people that are veterans of digital art. The people that had been around since the first digit Photoshop or something like that. And here you can adjust the saturation and brightness of your color by moving the radical around like this. Or you can change the hue to change the color and stuff like that. So this is nice. And yeah, you can just adjust the hue, saturation and brightness with these sliders. And yet, so last thing is that the radical, this little top-right thing is yeah, I'm just basically your act of color, whatever is your active color. And once you're happy with your chosen color, just tap anywhere outside of the colour panel to have that done. So great. That is the classic colour colour panel for procreate. Thanks for watching. 27. Color Harmony: Hello and welcome to Harmony. This is a video about the harmony tab in the colour panel. And harmony is way you can supercharge your art with a bunch of color theory. It's really nice. Harmony builds instant color theory like complimentary, triadic and stuff like that. So what you need to do on the top right bar is the color button, like we know. Just tap that and you have your colour panel. And then you compress the harmony tab. And there you have it. This is the has_many tab. And now right here, right here, this whole thing, the colors, this is called the color disk. It's the hue and saturation disk. The harmony interface. It combines hue and saturation into a singer single color wheel. Colors on the edge of the wheel are at maximum saturation and become, that could become less saturated as they go into the middle. And then below that is a Brightness slider. You can adjust the brightness by dragging the black and white slider on the wheel. And then there's radicals. You can see these two radicals and moving around the color wheel. They just have radicals. It's clearer circle and you can drag it around and select which color you want. As you drag the radical, it displays two colors. So on the right, on the right side there's the red. On the left side there's blue. And yeah. Yeah. But then also there's a history tab. And so this allows you to see the history that like we talked about before. And also the, the harmony color. We'll also contains secondary radicals that change automatically based on what you do with your primary radical. So you can see moving around the red color radical. And the other one's moving around accordingly because it's an complimentary mode. And also the number of secondary radicals is based on which mode you have. So let's talk about modes. You can choose five different modes that automatically select harmonious color schemes from this wheel and based on clastic color theory. So on the top left below the colors title, you have complimentary. So you just press that and this little pop-up comes up. Default complimentary is selected, but there's more, there's split, complementary, there's analogous triadic and to traffic. So let's go through it one by one. Complementary like we have been seen. It. Let's just to have that. So complimentary is activated and it has two radicals. You can select colors from the opposite sides of your colors. Because they are exact opposites, complementaries can make each other appear brighter. One will always be a cool color and the other will always be warm. Together, they create the highest possible contrast on the color wheel. That can also be mixed to create effective neutral hues, or they can be blended together for shadows. And now let's look at split come elementary. This has three Radicals, and you could select colors and a sharp triangle formation. Split complementary color schemes you as one base color and two secondary colors place symmetrically on the color wheel, positioned in a narrow triangle. This will give you a combination of one warm and cool colors or vice versa. Unlike the complimentary color scheme above, a split complementary color scheme is often more balanced and easier on the eyes. Generally, the color at the sharp end of the triangle is the main shade used with the two complimentary colors used as highlights and accents. And now let's look at the next one. Analogous. So analogous, this has three Radicals and they're like neighbors. So you select your color and the two neighboring radicals move around close by. So this scheme uses one base color and there's two secondary colors. Oh, so yeah, like split complementary base colors based, best used as the main shade in the artwork. But with the secondary, they are reserved for highlights and accents and takings. However, because the three shades of, of analogous color position so close together, the result is uniformly warm or cold, creating an elegant and clear color scheme without any tension in the pellet. Pellet. Now let's look at triadic. I've used this one on the past and oftentimes I had to go look on the internet for these color type, color wheels and color theory. But procreates nice because it has at all in the app. So even if you bought the app just for this would be pretty useful. So triadic has, as you might, I guess, there's three Radicals. Yeah, they have a equal formation triangle. This variant is like a split complementary sort of, but it puts each radical equal distance between all three colors. So this result is a trio of colors that are equally dominant. This makes for a vibrant and punchy result, which should be carefully balanced and artwork. Tetrad. Ok, let's, let's look at that. This is for radicals and you can select colors and a square formation from opposite corners of the color wheel. So like triadic, the tetrarchic TETRAD places equal distance between all the colors chosen, resulted in no clear dominance of one color. The result was vibrant, colorful. These shapes can be aggressive in combination. So be careful planning and sensitive, you know, having a sensitive approach or need to get the best visual outcome. Yeah, so let's talk about selecting colors. So each color in your color scheme, you can begin painting or build up a harmonious palette. Tap any reticle to select the color within it. From here, you can immediately a paint with that color. So you can see I selected the green paint with that color. Select the blue paint, select thread. And Lex. Yeah. You can also drop colors. So select your color and you can drop the colors in the palette. So say you had the nice TETRAD, OK? And then you want to go back to complimentary. You could then. Yeah, so that's good. So those rectangles in the top right, the color is your primary and secondary colors. That's what I wanted to show you as well. But yeah, once you're happy with your chosen color, you can tap outside anywhere of the colour panel and we can draw an away and stuff. So that's that. Thanks so much for watching harmony. 28. Color Values: Hello. Now we're going to be talking about the value and what value it. Well, let me just show you. Value is a way you can replicate exact colors using precision sliders. There's hue, saturation brightness, red, green, blue, and hexadecimal numerical inputs. So let's learn how it's done. Choose color. So this is the first step, just that little button there and as per usual colored button. And then you just click on the Value tab. And that brings up the value stuff. Yeah, so this is where procreates value tab has all of its stuff, and this is for precision color matching. So on the right-hand side is right here. And so can use sliders or numerical inputs to select colors based on their hue, saturation and brightness, HSB, or they're RGB, red, green, blue. And you could actually just enter the information here like this. You could enter it, enter in the data. And that's a good way to share colors online if you have ever designed websites or done any digital art, I'm sure you've come across this and this is where you can enter that information very precisely. So using the HSB sliders, HSB sliders, you can adjust the hue, and this is the hue right here. And then this is the brightness, or sorry, saturation, and then this is the brightness. So, yeah. But alternatively you could enter the exact numerical values just by tapping one of the buttons and then entering the exact numerical value. Next is red, green, blue. So you can see here, of course, the hue is where you choose the color that's choose green. And so yeah, this is just the RGB sliders. And you can also enter the information manually as well, just like the others. And next is hexadecimal. This is a six character code. And it's another way to express RGB values. But sometimes it's actually a little more easy. With the hexadecimal code. If you've ever done any website work or digital art or Photoshop or anything like that. And you had a certain color that you liked. A hexadecimal code is, I'm sure you have run across this, and that's where you can enter the hexadecimal code. That's paradise. Yeah, so that hex decimal code is system is really nice for receiving and sharing your colors because all you have to do is send them there, your code. You could send the RGB values to them, but it's a little easier, just stands for the code. But yeah. And lastly, oh, well, there's the history and stuff like that. We've gone over before, but then there's also the primary and secondary colors tab as well for the value in colors. Thank you so much for watching that is values and procreate. 29. Palettes: Palettes, pallets is what brings us together today. And what does the pallet, a palette is a way for you to store your colors. And a swatch is a group of pallets. In procreate you can create an import. Pallets. And pallets are a nice way to have your colors stored close at hand. And yeah, it can save, you can share, and you can organize all these pots. And that's what we're going to be learning about today. So first of all, let's talk about swatches. Let's just go ahead and go to Co.'s tab here. And let's go palette sexually. Since that's what we're gonna be talking about. And yeah, so swatches are what we see right here. They are basically a collection of pallets and each representing bunch of saved colors. And you can just tap, tap here to any of these colors to get colors activated. And the color picker. You can also create swatches. So you can actually just press the plus button. And now you have a new swatch swipe left to delete. So anyways, so that's how you could create a swatch. And I should say, I only have three here. Those are kinda the ones that come with procreate. I think. The one on the top here, the default one, there's just one I threw together while making this course. You can also reorder your swatches. So just click on one of your swatches and you can move it up or down according to what you wish. I like I said, you swipe left and you can delete it or share so many options. Alright? And then, yeah, so this is the pallet library that I'm showing you here is just the collection of swatches and it's procreates pallet library. You can create right here with this plus button. You can save, obviously because you created it. So saving it. You can import by also pursuing this plus button. Or you can share. So swipe left to share, or you can delete. But be careful with that button. It's the red scary button. Anyways. So that's, That's that. Another thing is this little button here set as default. What that does is it basically sets, there's one swatch that is at the bottom. And whenever you set as default will be the swatch of palettes that show up at the bottom of these other color options like the disk or whatever. So that's that. So here's a pro tip though. If you have all your colors saved and you actually want to work with more than one palette of colors, it's probably best to just keep pallets open and and have all your swatches of colors and stuff. But yeah. So let me also show you something interesting. Drag up here. Click files up and actually don't want that there at the corner there. Zoom this over here. Could actually take your color swatch and you can move it around and you can actually export and swayed, swayed. You can slave, no safe. But you can save your swatches and send them to other programs and other people. So that's just something I want to show you as well. You can of course share it like this, like email or whatever you wish, but you can also drag it out and to other apps as well. It's a very nice feature. Anyways, I hope you learned a lot about color palettes. In procreate. Colored palettes is what houses the color swatches. Thank you so much for watching. 30. Color Profiles : Welcome to the last video in this section of videos about colors for procreate. So we'll talk about profiles. And profiles are a way you can create art with a color profile. And a color profile is designed to achieve the best results on screen or print. So you can choose from RGB or CMYK options. Rgb is best for screen and CMYK is best for print. But yeah, color profiles. Let's learn about color profiles First you have to go to the gallery. Alright, so I'm actually going to try to rotate this Sita showed you. Okay, there we go. Let's go ahead and delete that one. Do a little bit of work to keep in house. So for color profiles here, you just press this little plus button and this brings up the canvas. New canvas creations, little pop-up. So screens and printers manage colored differently. And code profiles can help create artwork for each method. Yeah, so like I said, this is where you access code profiles. When you create a canvas, just the little plus button. And you can create a new canvas or accustom Canvas. So to make a new custom Canvas, just create that button like this untitled Canvas so you can delete it or you can see now, it created that custom canvas, canvas. Canvas. So that's how you do that custom canvas. But there's pre-loaded color profiles in procreate already. So let's go ahead and make a custom canvas. And, and here we already talked to you about these details where you add widths and heights and all of this. But let's now click on color profile. And you can see now there's color profile and there's RGB for screen related content, and then there is CMYK for print type content. Yeah, so display P3 is kind of an industry standard, RGB. And then generic CMYK is just the industry standard for printing coat profile, bow. So that's that. But let me explain a little more. Rgb versus CMYK. So digital ours usually created to suit either screen or printers. Rgb is best for artwork created to be viewed on screens. And RGB manages color the same way screens do by seeing each color as a unique combination of red, green, and blue. Cmyk, it's the best option for artwork designed to be printed. This sees each color as a mix of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Dot matches the four ink colors used by though commercial printers. So by choosing the color space best suited for your artwork destination, you will get the most vivid, inaccurate colors possible. Yeah. But if you're not sure, you can leave your color profiles on their default settings. So now it'll work either way. It's just sometimes it's good to make sure you have the right code profile going on. But you can actually import your own custom code profiles as well. Just press import here and you can import your own custom color profiles. Custom color profiles can be a bit complex. And so I won't be explaining it in this course. But and you can learn about custom color profiles on the internet and make your own. Anyways, that is about color profiles in procreate. Hope you learned a lot. 31. Layers Overview: Hello there. Today we are going to be talking about layers and are actually an overview video over the next couple of videos. So layers, they have a unique power and procreate. And you can paint overlapping objects without altering the work you've already done on previous layers. You can easily move layers, edit layers, recolor laters, or delete. So you're gonna enjoy a lot of creative freedom with layers. So first, I will talk about the interface. Layers. The layers interface. It offers a really nice way to experiment and work with. Layers. You can work above or behind existing elements and you can move around the interface, controlling all of it. Can paint, moved up, ok, edit, blend, and lots of different things. We'll be learning about the interface. And we'll be learning how to create new layers. You can control, find parts of your image and different things like that, where you create new layers and stuff like that. And we will learn how to organize our layers. You can move, you can lock, you can duplicate, and it can really of course. So there's a lot of ways you can organize your layers. And it's all by touching and swiping and lot of gestures. So we'll learn all of that. And then we will learn about options. There's a lot of options like you can rename your layers, you can select them, you can copy them, you can fill them, you can clear them. You can have alphas on them, you can mask them, you can reference them, we can merge them. And you can see now that layers are very versatile. And now blend modes will also talk about Blend Modes. So by default, the content on a layer covers up the contents of the layers underneath it. But there are many more ways to, the objects in the colors on two layers can interact, blend modes, opened up a endless possibilities. That layers can work together. And then there's masking. Can mask your layers. Procreate offers a variety of ways to modify your our work while protecting certain areas of content. And this gives you freedom to work fast and experiment with a lot of confidence. And then lastly, we will talk about sharing your layers. So there's a lot of options that you can share your layers and bulk share a bunch of layers or just one layer, lumps of stuff. And we'll talk about PDF documents, animations, and basically, a lot of ways you can make your layers work real well. So layers, let's talk about layers and the next few videos. 32. Layers Interface: Hello and welcome to the next video, this video about layers. We're beginning our layers process videos. And this first video is going to be talking about the interface. While I can show you the interface right here, and that's pretty much it. But layers offer an unparalleled level of freedom to experiment. Comparing traditional, traditional art. That's a real big bonus of digital art. And it's been around for a while like with Photoshop. But you can work above or behind existing elements. Your painting, you can move, can duplicate, you can edit, can blend, and the results all can be independent from one another. So let's talk about the Layers panel. Panel. Layers panel. It offers a clean interface with a variety of powerful functions. Functions, it's really, really nice, I really like. So first of all, number one, from starting from basics is the Layer menu button. You just click on the Layer menu button that's right there, the Layer menu button. And it's shaped like a pair of overlapping squares. And that's trying to indicate that it's flares and it's a layers button. So it sits at the top right. Just click it there and so quick and that activates the layer. Next, there's the plus button and clicking that creates a layer. As you can see, I'm creating a bunch of layers. And that's shaped like the plus button, indicating that you will add something new. Next is the layer thumbnail. And this is the, the little gray icon here. So let's go ahead and draw in green squiggly lines here. And now you can see in this layer thumbnail, it shows what you have done. And now let's go ahead and click on read. Just put random stuff in there and each layer will show what you drew on there. So that's the layer thumbnail. It just offers a small-scale preview of the contents of each layer. And then there's layer name. You can just click on the layer here. And it's customizable. Layer name gives you another way to track what is going on. Just click on it and you can press rename. Ok, done. And so you can rename your layers there. And next is selected layer. So this layer, whatever is blue, is selected layer. So any changes you make on the canvas will be affected by the currently selective active layer that it's hideaway highlighted in blue. And next is little n button. And you just click on that. And that this is for blend mode. Blend bone gives you the power to blend the contents of multiple layers and together in different ways. And you can instantly create and mix Friday visual effects. So it's just the small little letter n, and it indicates blend mode. We will learn more about Blend Mode later in this course, I will talk about blue nodes. So yeah. And next is the visibility checkbox. If you turn off the visibility checkbox, new layers, then the contents of that layer will go away. So it's nice way to quickly turn to layer offer on. Sometimes you want to keep the stuff but not necessarily show it. So that's a way to do that. And next is background color. This is a, a layer down at the very bottom. And each and every procreate document, it comes with a background color layer. And you just tap it to select which color you want between your artwork. But you can also hide it if you wish. And then your artwork can be transparent. So that is the layer options menu. And layer options menu offers a broad range of ways to interact with layers, just with a few touches. It's very intuitive I think. But another thing I wanna talk about is you just tap on a layer and there'll be a lot of layer options. Rename, select copy, fill layer clear alpha, mask could all do all these options. And I'll talk to about that later. And when we talk about layer options. So that's enough for this video. We learned about the interface of the layers panel. Thanks so much for watching. 33. Create Layers: Hello. So today we're talking about layers still. And we're gonna be talking about creating new layers. So with these layer controls, you have fine control over every part of your image. And it's simple when each element exists on a separate layer, leave me, it really, really does help. So it's a good idea to get new layers going. So like I showed you, let's go ahead and delete a few of these layers. Like I showed you before. All you do is press the plus button and you can add layer after layer after layer. And yeah, you can add new layers to project. And you can separate different elements of your artwork. And you can give your layers custom names to, and that helps keep, it helps get things organized. So you can have like line work or Sketch, Sketch work, pencil work, type it in, line work, inking, coloring, lighting and shading, and stuff like that. You could have layer after layer and the, yeah, it's very useful. So another thing I want to talk to you as well, background color. So you just click on the background color and you can build your work up on the background color of your choice. Or you can switch the background off completely. To do that, just click that. And now you actually have the entire background of this art invisible. So that's really interesting. But when you create a new artwork, the background color layers, by default, always white. But yeah, you can always tap on the background color. And that invokes the colour panel. And here you can select a new color for your artwork. She could you have it a darker or a grey background colors that have a white or something like that. So many options. But yeah. So yeah, that we're transparent background. So that's how you add a new layer, Create New Layer, and also deal with some of the background color for your layers in procreate. 34. Organize Layers: Hello, welcome to another video. Today's video is going to be about organizing your layers. So this was in the layer section of videos. We're going to be talking about organizing, moving, locking, duplicating, deleting. All of this can be done quite simply with some, just some gestures or movements with your Apple pencil. As you can see, I'm deleting some of these layers that I had from previous video. But yeah, so let's talk about selecting layers. You can select and control and edit multiple layers at once. Can perform bulk moving, grouping, deleting, or transformations. So to give you finer control, procreate offers two kinds of layer selections. Well, let me make some layers ago. They just tell you them but to demonstrate this. So there's primary layers. So you can see here, the blue highlighted layer is the primary layer. So yeah, I'm a liar panel, you just tap and whatever layer that you tap on is then the active layer or the primary layer. Yeah. But then there's also a secondary layer. So you can do is just swipe right on any of the layers that you want to be activating or deactivating as secondary layers? Yes, you can. With your secondary layers, you can have them appear and they are dark blue. There appears dark blue. But yeah, you can only have one primary layer at a time, but you can select as many secondary layers as you would like. So, yeah. But I should say drawing and painting only appears on the primary layer. So yeah, anything that you can do, selection or transformation, and it will affect all these layers. But adjustments. They can not be used on multiple layers. But you can see there's things you can do. You can delete all of them, you can group them. But yeah, mainly selections and transformations. They will work with multiple layers. Alright, so let's go ahead and get rid of the secondary layer. So I should say, let's talk about selecting versus selecting, selecting and layer versus selecting the contents of layer. To do that, actually need to get some contents on this layer here. So yeah, that's good enough. It's now there's contents. So procreate and enables you to select an entire layer. That's what we have there. Or you can select all the pixels on a layer via the layer options menu. So yeah. So what you can do is you can even further control layer select. So let's go here to tool thing. Actions, preferences, and you go to gesture controls. And in here you can do layer select. And so you can touch of a finger touching will invoke layer select finger touch while holding. Modified button will invoke layer select stuff like that. So that's another tip. Next, I wanna talk to you about grouping layers. So just click on the layers and swipe right to have a secondary layer. And you can just press Group. And now you have a new group and you can go ahead and rename your group or whatever you wish. So that's another option. But yeah, that's grouping. And as with layers, you can actually select a group and you can make that group as primary or secondary. So let's go ahead and click on this group, those two layers. So now we have a primary group and then a secondary group. So many things you can do. And like with the layer, the active layer, if you do an act of group, whatever you draw on the group will appear on all layers. But then if you wanna do it more finer details or SSL layer by layer, you can just select players, but selection of group also is useful. But yeah, you can move things up and down. So say we went on to move this group down below here you can move, move layers and groups. So you can just move this layer here as well. Can move. But you can also move layers between canvases. So you can drag layers from one campus to another. Or you can drop them in the gallery to create new campuses. So you just drag this tap on gallery with your other hand and you can, we dropped it into the canvas and now it's importing. Alright? And so you can see now what we did is we drug those into a new canvas. So that's decently useful. And you can drag it into other things as well. So this layer drag it around press gallery, and then you can press and put it over the artwork. And actually, let's go to untitled artwork. And now you can see here we moved, moved back to it so you can drag layers around it. It's pretty awesome. Now, with layers, you can also lock, duplicate or delete them. You can protect a completed layer from accidental edits with lock. So say you liked what you had here. Okay, up a pencil is now sometimes it does that. O at 0%. That's why. So watch out for your Apple pencil battery. So I'll just use my fingers. So here are the group here. You can actually swipe left and you can press lock and all this group of layers, you can do this with layer of course as well. But this group of layers is now locked and edits can not be done with it unless you physically go and unlock it as well. But you, as a demonstration, you can press duplicate bands. So this layer is locked and you can unlock the other group. So you can actually hide locked group and then make edits to a new group of layers. And you're just experiment that way without ruining like a certain level of artwork that you have thus far. Like this, this red art, it's amazing. I wanna keep it that way. But with this new group, I can lock and making visible the other group. And I know now that the other is nice and safe. But then the new group I can fiddle around with me. Okay, I connect to, to that. Okay. So I'm going to fiddle around with layers. But I didn't like what happened. So go back to the original. Very nice. Of course you can delete them as well. So you can collect this and delete, swipe left to delete. But I should caution you deleting is a permanent action, but yes, so that is layers and procreate should go ahead and delete that as well. I hope you learned a lot about layers and what you can do with layers and procreate. Thanks for watching. 35. Layer Options: Alright, so we're going to be talking about layer options in this video. With layer options, you can rename your layers. You can select your layers, you can copy your layers, you can fill your layers, clear them. You can do alphas, masks and references, and you can merge your layers. And there's lots of options in the layer options menu. So we're just clicking on the layer button. I'm just gonna go ahead and delete that from the past video. And I have a layer here, and then go ahead and add a few layers here just for variety. So to invoke layer options menu just tap on the layout. And it appears this thing to the left of the layer is the layer options menu. So, yeah, once you have the layer options panel open, There's a lot of things you can do. First of all, let's go from first to last. First one is renaming, so you can name it whatever you wish and just named it. And giving it a custom name is nice. Layers are added to your project and they give a default thing like you see here. They are 1-2-3-4-5 and stuff like that. But renaming it helps you remember your layers a little bit better. And another thing is you can press Select. And that doesn't work because i have nothing on the layer. So let's put something there and now go to options and you could press select. And you can see here now that when we press select, this will select only the non transparent parts of the layer. So parts where you have drawn, painted or pasted images. When your selection is active, you'll see areas outside the selection marked by moving diagonal lines. There, clips. So that's, that's what that is. So from here you can take all sorts of actions on a selected area. You can paint it, transform it, copy it, feather it, clear it. Plenty more and we'll learn about selections later in the selections group of video. But I just wanted to show you how to do that. So next is copy. Here. You can copy an active layer to the clipboard. So that's that. And you can like that. And let's select the layer and you can press copy. And so now you have whatever was on your Layer copied. And yeah, so now you can hide that layer and you can press paste. And now the contents of what you copied Are there. So that's nice. And other thing is you can fill with a flat color. So let's actually change our colored two different color and just press there. And you can press fill layer. And so you can see, you can. You filled the entire layer with a flat color. But you will have to remember that filling the layer meanings, you're filling the entire layer, the selected layers. So whenever you have on that layer before will be gone. It will be just a flat color layer, but that's a bit bright. So let's undo that. Another thing you can do is you can clear an entire layer so top and you can press Clear. And so that, that will clear the contents of the entire layer and all reset the layer opacity to 100%. But it will not reset the blend mode or change the layer name. So, yeah. So that's that. Next, let's bring up this here. Press tab on the layer and you can press Alpha lock, and it will lock the transparency of the layer. So any further drawing or painting will only affect the existing artwork on the layers. So let's show how that's done. Very clearly demonstrates how those done. So alpha luck. So I'll have luck is ideal for adding texture, detail, or shading to an element of your artwork without painting outside the lines. It's very nice. But tap there, see how alpha has a check mark. Just select it again to get rid of Alf luck. Next is mask. And masking locks a transparent Siri, transparency of a layer to a parent layer. So a layer mask functions like an alpha lock with one difference. Instead of respecting the transparency of itself, it respects the transparency of Apparent Layer. So the changes you make on your layer mass can be removed or altered without affecting the parent layer. This makes layer masks a great way to modify the appearance of a parent layer, non-destructively allowing you to experiment with colors, structures, and affects. But anyways, this masking situation we'll talk more about in future videos about all about masks and clipping. Mask is basically editing one layer using the contents of another layer. And yeah, clipping masks and other thing what we will talk about in the masks such section of videos. So next what we have is actually invert and invert reverses the colors of your layer. So each color is replaced with the opposite complimentary colors. Just press invert. And so now the blue has changed to this bright, intense yellow and it's the opposite of that layer. So let's go ahead and delete that. And let's go ahead and do purple y-naught. And then let's go ahead and click invert. So now you can see this layer here has changed from purple to green, the inverse of the color. Now, you can also reference, so create color, fill that respects the inked lines on a separate layer. This advanced feature helps cartoonists and concept artists keep color fills and ink lines separate. Set. This setting you can color drop fills on any layer and the fills will behave as though they are flowing into the line work on the reference layer. Preserving your line work and colors on separate layers allows you to recover and adjust both elements of your art independently of one another. So in the layers panel, tap on the layer to bring up layer options then tub reference. So reference layer displays the label reference underneath the layer name as you can see. And then you can select another active layer. And color drop will fill into it based on the reference layer. So it just go there. And you can see the color drop actually didn't fill anywhere except for where was. So let's select this artwork and you can see that reference situation works real well. Now, you can actually do merge down. So we did that and we now merged down. So that is really nice. But you can also do combine down. So let's create another layer so we can actually do that, can tap it and then combine down, and that actually makes a new group. Well, that's it for layer options. We'll be learning more about masking later. We kind of skipped over that in this video, but that's a rollover of layer options in procreate. Thank you so much for watching. 36. Blend Modes: By default, content on a layer covers up the contents of layers underneath it. But there are many more ways that objects and colors on two layers can interact. And that's where blend modes come in. At. Blend modes open a, a plethora of opportunity. So let's talk about the interface. First of all, I'm going to go ahead and get some content on this layer. And then I'll create a new layer and get some content on this layer. Just scribbles, whatever. But yeah, let's look at this, opened up the layers. Undo that because I put a little mark there. So you can see I have content on these two different layers, layer 23. I don't know what happened to one just giving but yes. So the layer content, a little red scribbles on let layer cover the purple. But we'll, we'll learn more how these two scribbles can interact instead of just covering up each other. So yeah, the Blend Mode is on the Layers panel. And then here we have our two different layers. And if you click this little N stands for normal mode, and that is a blend mode. It means normal. So this is the Blend Mode Menu. It has two parts. It has the name of the current mode, normal activated, and then opacity slider up here. So tapping the name gives you a scrolling list of blend modes to flip through it. So you actually have way more than that, way more than that. But yeah, let's go back to normal for now. But as you scroll through the blend modes, it's applied to your layer so you can preview the results, multiply, darken, Color Burn than you light. Go through, lighten screen, Commodore edge and line color overlay. Just scroll through. There's a lot of options there. Pretty interesting. But let's go back to normal here. On the long run, homer, Where did you go normal? There you are no more. But yeah, then opacity controls, Well, the opacity of the contents of your layer, not the contents below and other layers, but the contents of your layer. So yeah, in normal mode, full capacity means solid objects on your Layer completely block the objects blow. But in other modes are passed to the can sometimes affect other visual elements like color intensity or darkness. Layout. Like I said, to move the capacity just to just this little slider here. This will alter the capacity of the entire layer. So you need to keep that in mind. Mind, but the other layers, it will not adjust. And now let's explore blood blend mode types. There is many, and I'll go through the list starting from the top. So multiply, multiply. This mode, multiplies the luminosity of the base color by the blend color. The result is an overall darker and more intense fact, multiply can produce many different levels, darkening. Depending on the luminosity of the blend layer, it's perfect for darkening images or creating shadows. Next is darken. You can see that in too much, but I'll explain it. So this mode, actually, it does not blend pixels, but it compares the base and blend colors and it keeps the darker of the two. If the blend layer and the base layer or color or the same darken makes no change. Color Burn. Color Burn is a mode designed to mimic the use of the burn tool, used dark images and traditional photography. It increases the contrast between the base and the Bund colors, resulting in more highly saturated mid tones and reduce highlights and overall darker result. Then multiply. Linear Burn. So Linear Burn and decreases the brightness of the base color based on the value of the blend color for a result that is darker than Multiply, but less saturated, then colorbar reproduces more contrast in darker colors than other blend modes. Now, darker color, darker color makes darker colors. It functions like darken, but it takes a composite of all the RGB channels, rather than looking at each RGB channel individually. And normal is normal. Next is lighten. So this mode does not blend pixels, but compares the base and blend colors. And it keeps the brightest of the two. If the blend and base colors are the same, lighten makes no change. Keep that in mind. And then screen, screen and produces different levels of brightening depending on their luminosity values of Lubalin layer, making it an ideal by any mode for brightening images are creating highlights. So keep that in mind. That's really nice for highlights. Color dodge, If you ever worked with Photoshop, I'm sure you've heard this term before, a lot of the terms actually. So based on the Dodge tool used to brighten images in traditional photography Color Dodge creates a brighter effect than screen by decreasing the contrast between base and blend colors resulting in saturated mid tones and route blow now highlights ad. So add is similar to screen or color dodge. Add produces even stronger results. So it looks at the color information in each channel, brightens base code to reflect the blend color by increasing the brightness. Lighter color. Yeah, so lighter color functions like lighten, but it takes a composite of all the RGB channels rather than looking at each RGB channel individually. Next is overlay. Overlay, and it works like a combination of multiply and screen. Both lightening and darkening images by shifting mid tones. Bled dark blend colors shift the mid tones to darker colors and light tone shift the mid tones to brighter colors. Now, soft light. So soft flight, it's a gentler version of Overlay. Soft lie applies subtle darkening or lightening effects based on. Luminance values achieving a similar result without the harsh contrast. Next is hard light. There's a lot of these, but I wanted to explain each one so you know. But yeah, hard light. So as a combination of a multiply and screen Lenny modes, Hard Light uses the brightness values of the blend layer to make its calculations. Where overlay uses a base layer. The results with hard light tend to be intents. As with all blend modes, though, reducing the layers of pasty will soften the result. Now, Vivid Light scares me. And light is an extreme version of overlay and soft light. Anything darker than 50% gray is darkened and there anything lighter than 50% gray is lightened. Like hard light. It can be really was very strong results and may work best with reduced capacity. Now linear light, another blend mode that produces a very strong result is linear light. It combines dodge effects on lighter pixels with burn effects on darker pixels. It can also benefit from reduced opacity. Well law. Now, Pin Light, Pin lie, it's an extreme blend mode. Pin Light performs darken, enlightened simultaneously creating a patchy result with Miltiades removed. And some of these effects cannot be seen with a simple scribbles job done, but I'm explaining each one to you anyways. So hard mix, we're halfway through just giving Hard Mix. It's creating a super flat, supersaturated result with almost post dries type effect. Hard makes as an extreme blend mode that flattens detail. It provides a result using only white, black and any of the six primary colors. Red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, or yellow. Passive the adjustments can soften the results. Difference. So as the name suggests, difference uses the difference of the base and blend colors to create the resulting blend. White pixels invest the colors of the base layer. Black pixels produce no change and dark grays apply slight darkening. Now for exclusion, exclusion works the same way as difference on blacks and whites, but doesn't dark integrase. Subtract, subtract drastically, darkens, coached by subtracting brightness, light areas or dark in the most, while already dark areas produce little change. Divide, divide us the opposite of subtract. Darker colors, create brighter results. Well already like areas produce little change. And know for HW, HW you, you, you can use hue to change the hue and a layer while maintaining the tones and saturation of the original. Now, saturation, where did it go? Notched kidney saturation is a blend mode, preserves the luminosity and hue of the base layer while updating the saturation of the blend layer. Alright, so then there's color. Color preserves the luminosity of the base layer while adopting the hue and saturation of the blend layer. This makes it ideal for coloring monochromatic images. You could, for example, create a fully shaded character portrait in grayscale and use a color layer over the top of it too quickly and easily. Bring color to it. So that is an option. And lastly, luminosity. Luminosity preserves a hue and saturation of the base layer while adopting the luminosity of the fluid. Okay. So that was a lot to cover, but that's blend modes. Hope you learned a lot. Thanks for watching. 37. Layer Masks: Alright, so today we're gonna be talking about masking. So masking and procreate offers a variety of ways to modify your artwork while protecting certain areas of the content. It gives you the freedom to work fast and experiment with confidence. So first of all, let me talk to you about layer locks. So while layer locks are not masks in the digital sense, locks offer an important related function. They can temporarily, temporarily protect some or all of the layer from edits. Procreate provides two types of locks. So let's figure this out. So the first one is layer lock. So here we have our promotional image for this course. And here we have this layer. But if we want to prevent any accidental changes and edits, and actually what you can do is also duplicate that way. And they just hide one of them that way. And you destroy one layer. You still have another son. With a layer lock. You can prevent any accidental changes and edits being made on a layer you want to preserve as is. So what you do is just swipe left, right to left on layer or layer group and you just press lock. And now you can see right there, there's a lock type icon. So when a group as locked and will lock all layers in that group. So unlocking any layer in a group will unlock the entire group. So you should keep that in mind. When a layer or a group is locked though, you will have a small padlock symbol next to the name. Like your say here, it's a layer. You cannot edit, move, cut, paste, transform, or delete a layer that has locked. Simply put, you can't do anything at all to a lock layer is completely protected. But if you do want to edit it, press unlock and I can edit it for further editing. Of course. Duplicating it might be helpful as well, like I did here, just in case I mess it up or something. So the second type of Locke in procreate is alpha lock. So what alpha locks allows you, it allows you to do is that lays down a shape or area of artwork and then it locks this alpha. It's the alpha shape. So you can only paint or smudge inside the area that already has paint on it. Using this, you can block out a character than freely add color and detail to that character without worrying about painting outside the lines. Or you can lock your line work too easily recover parts of it without damaging your original lines. So this artwork, I don't have the line where kind of separate layer. So I can't show that really functionality. But I can show you Aflac. So once you've blocked out the shape, you want, tap the layer to bring the layer options, and then just tap that and then press Alpha luck. And now you see it is alpha locked. Yeah. So an alpha active alpha lock, an alpha alpha lock down, an act of alpha lock is shown by the checkered background there in this little thumbnail. It means the background is kinda transparent or something. So if you want to touch up an edge or ADD existing shape, then you can. So I'll show you here, see your campaign outside here, but then I can pate inside. So let's go ahead and change the brush to something like this. So you can see how alpha lock works and alpha lock is quite nice. It locks. So the outside cannot be painted, but the inside can very nice. But that's all flock. And yeah, so we'll turn that back on if we wish. But let's turn off for now. But now let's talk about the, the, what we're after, the masking of procreate masking layer as a powerful tool for non-destructive experimentation. You can modify a Layer Mask to hide or show any part of its parent layer without erasing any content. You can't lock transform and copy masks. So to create a mask, you can add a mask attached to your primary layer. So what you wanna do is tap on your layers and then tap on your primary layer, the one that's in blue. And this invokes the layer options here. And then you just press mask. Well, my water bottle exploded just good. But yeah, anyways, so Layer Mask is here and your new mask will appear above, unattached to the selected layer. And now you can edit. You're going to use the eraser or you can paint in grayscale to edit your layer mask. So layer masks are edits. They have editings, grayscale. So erasing or paying him black hides parts of parent layer and painting and white reveals parts. So varying shades of grey will alter the content with corresponding levels of a passivate. So let's figure this out here. You can see here I have black. So I can erase. Or of course, you can use the Erase tool. And then if you use grey, it's like half capacity. And then if it's white, nothing. But if it's just a little gray, slightly opacity, it's all the way black, completely erase. And this allows you to erase C u at the ASH where that comes from, the edge. So this allows you to erase the edge very nicely. Of course you could do that with an eraser and relative to without the landmass, but it would more to a mask. And now we can do is you can select and either the, the mask layer or the apparently or select a mask layer there. And you can select it as your primary. And so when you select a layer mask as your primary layer, you can use the eraser paint to edit the mask, but selecting the parent linear as your parent, parent layer at the primary layer by law, the parent layer as your primary layer, and it allows you to modify the content of that layer underneath the mask. So selecting either the layer or the mask as the primary, we'll select the other as the secondary. Allowing you to transform both at once. If you want to transform the layer or the mask separately, you can deselect the other first. We'll be talking about transform or later in a transform section of videos. Okay? Now the thing is you can move your mask. You can easily relocate a mask layer without affecting the mask layer. Now. So you can tap and hold on the Layer Mask or its parent to, or you can just move them around. And it created a new group. But yeah, so I'm going to undo that. We need that layer back. So you can actually move this here and then you can do it the group, ok. So you can see we moved that layer mask around and you can select whichever is your primary, you can select and move it around. So Yeah, no, the thing is you can actually delete or lock a layer mask so you can lock it or delete it. So next I wanna talk about clipping mask. Let's go ahead and tap Apparent Layer. And so let's go ahead and tap this parent layer compressed merge mask. And that will just make it one layer. And now it's up on the layer again and you can press clipping mask. So what clipping mask does, it controls the visibility of one layer based on the content of the other layer. So you can see here the above layers, invisible way, if it's visible or invisible, works out well. And then well, my keyboard went flying. But anyways, where was I? Oh, okay. So yeah. What does that's what a clipping mask does. So when you activate a clipping mask eclipse, you are active layer to layer underneath. And the visibility of the clip layers control by the contents and the transparency of the parent layer. So let's change the transparency here. As you can see. Yeah, so and then if you change the transparency of that doesn't do anything because it's dependent on the original layer. So you can turn any layer into clipping mask from the layer options. You can just tap your primary layer and then select clipping mask or you can de-select it. So you can see here this mask here, we've moved it around. Another face nears Press Cooking mask. And yeah. So that's only what's shown is the mask and the clipping mask will only be shown from the original layer. That's like the parent layer, whatever under it. Halter explained sometimes though. Again, move that back there. So another thing you're going to do is transform. You can Eric experiment with a shape and form of your Kofi mass using transform? You can use Transform to move, scale, or distort the content of your Apparent Layer. Changing which parts of a clip layer are visible. But yeah, we'll talk more about transform stuff in another section of videos. And you can also adjust. You can play with color, texture, and effects on your layer with adjustments. We will explore more of that later as well. And adjustments section like filters like capacity, Gaussian Blur and liquefy, and stuff like that. And we already talked about how you can move your layer around. And that will be the effect of clipping mask layer and stuff. You can also lock, duplicate or delete. And of course you can also deactivate the clipping mask. Now, the clipping mask defects are not visible, are shown anymore. Anyway. Let's turn a clipping mask again on to see what's done. Well, that is a video about masks. Thank you so much for watching. 38. Export Layers: Alright, so this is the last video about layers in this course. I hope you learned a lot about layers. They're quite amazing. Layers are a godsend to when it comes to digital art. It's amazing. But yeah, so lastly, let's talk about how you share your layers between projects, naps, and different things like that. So with procreate, you have many options to share your layers, layer or layer in bulk. So it couldn't be a multi-page PDF document, could be animation or anything in between. So first of all, there is drag and drop export. To demonstrate that I'm going to bring up the files up. There we go. And take the files up, put it there. Homer files up. So you can see here you can actually take a fight or a layer and the drag and drop. And so you could actually take multiple layers. So click or tap and drag one. And then you can add multiple layers to that selection by taking your other finger. And of course, I guess there has to be one layer left on there. So keep that in mind. And so now you can see all the layers are put into the files up. So that is drag and drop export. Another thing is, let's go ahead and do that. You notice the layer stay in there though when you drag and drop export is just copies over to a file. But you can actually, with your layer here, go to the tool icon and then go to Share. And here you can share layers. So here you can share as a PDF, a PNG for transparency stuff, animated GIF, animated PNG and animated things like this. But that's very nice. So with a PDF, it exports all your layers from your artwork to a PDF document. So when you click PDF, you can choose good, better or best quality. And you can choose your destination file, like Files app or something. Png. Png files, these bulk expert, all your layers from your artwork to a batch of B at PNG files. So each layer creates a separate PNG file. And you can also choose good, better, or best quality. And each PNG file will be assigned to file name from your artwork. So whatever say you named your art like something, something you named your arm or something. And so I would export something dot something dot something dot CSS3, stuff like that. And animated GIF. It exports all your layers from your work as an animated GIF. And we'll learn about automations later in this course. But yeah, and same with PNG and all this other stuff. So you can export your layers there. So anyways, thank you for watching. Sharing files are, sharing layers is fairly simple task and it can be helpful if you're working with other procreate artists, you can share your layers. Layers also worked for people that use Photoshop. So you could share your layers with other people that are using Photoshop or yourself that is using Photoshop or many other programs. So just try it all out and you can even share layers between different projects. So I showed you that before. Hopefully remember that. Thank you so much for watching. 39. Guides Overview: This video is going to be about drawing guides and assistance, actually an overview of the next few videos. So drawing guides and assistance in procreate. The procreate offers snappy snapping, drawing assists. They also have a powerful perspective and they have wonderful symmetry and, and you can also have instant perfection with quick shape. So procreates array of drawing guides and assistant assistive tools, frees you up to focus on the bigger picture and you can kinda cheat a little bit. So the first video we'll talk about how to create them. You can create a wide variety of drawing guides. And you can help build the structure of your artwork. You can activate guides and you can choose the functions that you need, and you can tweak how it looks really helpful. And then we'll be talking about the 2D grid. At the 2D grid keeps your work in proportion. This square grid is ideal for two-dimensional shapes and withdrawing assist to keep pure strokes aligned. And then there's also isometric guides. Isometric guides gives you the power to add a third dimension to your creations is ideal for engineering, architecture and other technical graphics. And then there's perspective guides. Perspective guides offer adjustable vanishing points. You can use these to construct realistic objects, backgrounds in your artwork. There's also symmetry guides. Symmetry guides. You can mirror your art across multiple planes for mind-bending effects. And there's also dryness, cyst, withdrawing assist. You can create a technically accurate drawings while procreate. Does the heavy lifting join assist matches or strokes to the drawing guide your chosen to your workflow. So it works faster. And then thusly will talk about Quit shape, quick shape, snaps, hand-drawn lines and shapes into their perfect forms in the blink of an eye. So as you can tell, procreate offers some wonderful things that you can do digital art. Kinda, you can cheat a little bit. And why not? It helps you save time. And if you're going for digital art, was procreate, procreates awesome with this. So let's learn all about in the next few videos. 40. Create Guides: Hello and welcome to Creating drawing guides. So in this class we're going to learn about how to create drawing guides in procreate. And these will help you to build a structure of your artwork. So you can learn how to activate guide, choose the functions you need, and tweak how it looks. So what you need to do first is go to the toolbar here and go into canvas here. And then go to drawing guide. And just press that button. And it will add a visual guide to your Canvas to help you build realistic environments and objects. Thanks. So it's now activated. It's very easy to activate. So if this is the first time you've used a drawing, God on your canvas, procreate will default to the 2D grid guide. So if you're used to drawing guide on the chemists before procreate will remember your settings and the default to those settings. So, yeah. But you can choose from a variety of drawing guides to suit every purpose that you, that you need. So what you can do is just press edit drawing guide. And this will bring up a canvas or interface rather of the drawing guide editing screen. And it will zoom to display your whole artwork so you can see the full effect on your chosen drawing guy and stuff. So you can use drawing guide, does visual cues, or you can activate drawing assist to automatically align your brush strokes in the direction of your guidelines. So here is cancel, cancel edits, and you can return to your canvas. Here is done. You can commit edits and returned to your canvas. And next is the color. So you can actually choose the color of your drawing lines. So many colors to choose from. Just basically of color of your drawing lines. And so here is the modes, 2D grid, isometric perspective, and symmetry. Drawing modes. They can be really useful. And here is a passage. So a pasty can set the capacity of your grid lines. You can have all the way to a 100% or barely visible. So and then here is thickness. Couldn't set them to be thick or less thick. Grid size. That's self-explanatory. You see the grid size. And then there's also drawing assist. Here you can activate or deactivate drawing assist. And later we'll be talking about drawing assist in another video. So the buttons beneath your artwork gives you the choice between four types of drawing guide, each designed to assist your work in a different way. There are explored. In later videos we will show you. But first of all is 2D grid. It's just a square grid for building flat surface. Isometric is a triangular grid for building 3D shapes without foreshortening for technical illustrations. And then there's Perspective. Yeah, you can really see Perspective going on there. There's 1.2 or three pointer perspective. And if you don't know what that is, I really encourage you to take an art class to learn what that is. And then there's also symmetry. And asymmetry is a guide designed to work with drawing assists to mirror your strokes horizontally, vertically, across quadrant or radially. It's perfect for creating reflected shapes, tiled designs and stuff like that. So if you were drawing a character that was looking at it itself in the water, that would be perfect if anything, that you wanted to do a mirror. Alright, so you're drawing guide appears as thin lines the overlay your artwork. And we already talked about this, but you can change, change the appearance of your drawing guides by the thickness, the opacity, the grid size, and the color up here. So many options. That's basically your own preference. And then when you're done to commit, depressed. Again, to commit press done. And now it applies the drawing guides to your work. Thank you so much for watching. In our next video, we will learn all about the 2D grid in depth by. 41. 2D Grid: Hello there and welcome to this video. This is going to be about the 2D grid in procreate software. So the 2D grid keeps your work in proportion. This squared grid is ideal for building two dimensional shapes and withdrawing assist it can keep your stroke aligned. So it's very, very nice. So now let's set up the 2D grid. What you wanna do to enact the 2D grid, to go to actions, that little tube toolbar icon there. And then just go to Canvas and then press on drawing guide. And there we have it. We enabled the drawing Guide. And we have a 2D grid right there. And then you can also edit your drawing great guide there as well. And the drawing guides interface there. So you can change the, I, can drag the two nodes here, can move around. So the 2D grid can go this way. Or you can press it to reset it. Or you can press it here to move it around there. Or I can press that to reset it as well. So you have a blue, the blue positional node moves the whole grid over the canvas and the green rotational node rotates the grid lines at n. Yeah, so it's very nice, but you can also change the appearance. You can change the opacity, can change the thickness, can change the grid size. So it can be quite different according to what you wish. And then you can enable it drawing assist as well. And that makes it so when you draw goes along the line or something like that, done to commit the changes right there. And there you have it, a 2D grid. That's it for this video is pretty nice and simple, but that is the 2D grid. So now withdrawing assist, you can actually have, there we go. You can draw, tends to that, but you couldn't draw and make the line straight. And it can really help out when you draw. And then when you just disable it. To nice straight lines with 2D grid to the grid really helps. Thanks for watching. 42. Isometric Guide: Alright, so in this video we're going to learn about isometric guides. So an isometric guide gives you the power to add a third dimension to your creations. It's ideal for engineering, architecture, and technical graphics. So let's look at isometric guides. Just go to actions canvas and press drawing guide. And then you can press edit drawing guide. So you can see here that the 2D guide has already been applied. Boy, you have to do is go and press isometric. And that will bring up the isometric design. And now you can actually do here is just like the other. Can take the green one to rotate it. And then you can pull the green out to rotate it more slowly or put it in to motivate more drastically, top the greened, reset it if you wish, or it compresses the blue to move around or type it to reset it if you wish. And isometric guide. So the same situation where you can just pass the thickness, grid size and assisted drawing. So that's isometric guides. That's pretty much it. Until you activate that. Press done when you're ready. And that's that. Thank you for watching. 43. Perspective Guides: Alright, so today is about perspective guides. In procreate perspective guides, they offer adjustable vanishing points and you can use these to construct realistic objects and backgrounds in your artwork. Really nice and super easy to deal with. So just go to the toolbar icon, the Actions button, press canvas, and turn on drawing guide. And you can see we have an isometric grid from last time. Now I've do is press edit drawing guide. And now we have the drawing guide interface open. And you're just press perspective. And now perspective is activated. Now what you need to do is you just tap. And now you have one-point perspective. So to do to do the position, you just tap it and you can move around. And yeah. So you just tap it to move it around. And then you tap other points to add more points to your perspective, lines and stuff like that. Lots of many options. And so you can see we added the vanishing points. You just have to tap anywhere on your screen degrade vanishing point. You agree up to three vanishing points, 1.2 or 3 perspective. So it's very nice. Oh, there goes the pencil. Then what you can do is press and hold on one of those points and just press it and you can delete it if you wish. Press it, press it, delete it. So let's do one-point perspective, just tap once. So one-point perspective, also called parallel perspective. It's the simplest form or perspective. So all surfaces and the image that faced the viewer appear as their true shape without any distortion. And vertical lines and horizontal lines are parallel with the edges of the canvas and the horizon line of the artwork. Only the surfaces that traveled towards and away from the viewer. Artists store it. These lines are all converge toward a single vanishing point that just called 1 and its one-point perspective. Now, for 2 perspective, you just tap anywhere else on the screen and you can add another perspective point. And it's called 2 perspective. So in 2 perspective, It's, it's a 2 or angular type perspective. So only vertical lines are parallel. All horizontal lines converge toward either two points on the horizontal line. And this type of perspective offers more realistic result than 1. But does have quiet, doesn't have quite as much depth as three-point perspective. And lastly, there's three-point perspective. I've to do. There is you add one more point. And it's the most complex, but it's the most realistic form of perspective. So all lines received toward one of the three vanishing points. And this mimics the way we see the real world. Objects recede away from us on every axis. This gives structures in your artwork. It gives believable depth, width, and height. So that also can change the appearance of your grid lines and stuff. That's just to drawing pasty and thickness. And then you can also you can tap one of the points to delete them as well. Or you can press Done to commit your changes. Well, that's that's that. Thank you for watching. 44. Symmetry Guides : Welcome to Symmetry guides assymetry grade is a way you can mirror your art, cross multiple planes for wonderful effects. So let's hit learn how to activate. Press the toolbar icon or actions icon there, press canvas and press drawing guide, and then edit drawing guide. We have the perspective thing, but to activate so it tree just click on the symmetry button and we haven't there. So your symmetry guide appears as thin lines the overlay your artwork. You can adjust the look and behavior of your guide with many options here, but so you can adjust the look and the thickness, the color up here. Just take this slider here and you can adjust the colour and stuff like that. And you know, the thickness as well as the pasty and different things. But there's also options. But first, let's try out this and see how it works. Let's take the 6B pencil. And now you can see how wonderfully that works. Symmetry guide. And I go to edit drawing and let's press on options here. Well, first of all, before we do options, let's do position and rotation. The green is rotation and tap it again to reset the blues position, but again to reset. So that's what those are we showed you already in the past. But now let's look at horizontal. As you might imagine, horizontals this same as vertical, just horizontal. Now go to edit drawing guide. Go to Option and do quadrant. Quadrant is really cool because yeah, quadrant and edit drawing guide. And you will have radial and press Done. And now it's radial. Now it's, you can make some amazing designs with this stuff. And now let's go back to edit drawing, going back two options. Yes, so there's a lot of options. So now let's show you something here. Let's go to vertical and let's turn on rotational symmetry. There we have it done. And now you can see rotational symmetry. Instead of mirroring it, it takes it and draws it the opposite. Let's go and look at the quadrant option. For another example. You can see it. It's radial symmetry. So yeah, it's interesting. Little better. I'm rotational symmetry mode. It is reflected and rotated instead of just mirrored, but can go to options and turn that off if you wish. But that is that it's thought and when of course you can turn assisted drawing and assisted drawing. It automatically adjust your strokes to match the direction of the guidelines. And in the next video we'll be learning all about assisted drying. Anyway. So that is that. And hope you learned a lot. Thank you so much for watching symmetry guides. 45. Drawing Assist: Hello and welcome to the next video. Today we're gonna be learning about drawing assist. So withdrawing SIS, it's a technology so you can create accurate drawings. Well, procreate does the heavy lifting. So drawing assist matches your strokes to the drawing Guide. You've chosen. Your work flows faster. To activate drawing assist. You. First have to do drawing guide. So turn on during guide and then turn on or edit drawing guide so you can bring up the drawing guide editing interface. And you can see here we just went over all these quite thoroughly and then just press assisted drying. And that is activated activated sister assisted drawing, turning that on or off right there. Yeah. So that's how you do that. So first done here, and you could see layer one here, Layer two, but layer one is assisted. So you're just press your layer and you can actually just tap it and then press drawing assist. And you can see the layers then are assisted. And that's how you can activate it. Also that way, either through that editing guide, editing dry guide interface, or through the layer, tapping on the layer and then press toggle it on or off, drawing a switched. So these one thing I want to mention is try not to be constrained to these guidelines. They're just there to help you out. To assist you, especially for drawing straight lines or something like that. But drawing free hand is always the best in my opinion. So but so with drawing assist, then you can see how it will work. See how it's amazingly. Drawing Assist can just draw a nice straight lines here. And vice versa. If you go to bed at drawing, going, go to isometric perspective, it's due perspective or something, whatever, something like that. You can see now. It's working with the perspective lines. And that is drawing assist. That's driving assist. I hope you realize how amazing this is. But one thing I would like to mention though, is that this is really good for the first stages of the construction lines. Perhaps getting the accurate perspective down and things like that, straight lines and things like that. I would suggest you move back to freehand when you do final details because there's nothing that beats freehand. Traditional dry. Thanks so much for watching, drawing assist. 46. Edit QuickShapes: Shapes, Court shapes is what brings us together today. So a quick shape and procreate is a way for you to snap your hand-drawn lines. You're free form drawing lines. And they can make a perfect form in the, the shape that you draw. So to create a quick shape, all you have to do is use your Apple pencil or your finger and draw a line. So typically you draw lines like this and you draw a circle or something. And that's actually, you know, k circle. But let's draw a circle. And that's with quick shape. You can see a little difference there. So what you wanna do is you want to draw this circle like we normally do, but then hold without releasing. And you can keep your pencil or finger held. It, can rotate it or skill. So that's pretty awesome. And you're, you're stroke will snap into a perfect line. And there's also arcs. There's, there's circles like this. The ellipses and triangles are squares or whatever. So let's make a square. Snaps to perfect square. Snaps to a perfect triangle. Snaps to a perfect line, maps to a perfect arc. So a pretty awesome. And like I said, you can scale and rotate it. So just do that. Keep it held. Can scale it and rotate it. But I'm just going to undo that. And let's do it again. And you can see here, but as you, you can actually do some more precise movements. So let me explain this. Draw the circle like normal. Hold the pencil for the quick shaped to be activated. And then take another finger, put it on the canvas, and now it will scale it or rotate it in 15 degree or 15 degree increments. I think 15 degree or something like that. It will scale and rotate it. Well wrote, Scaling is about fluid but rotating it, I think you can see it here. It's about 15 degree increments like that. So that's another little trick. And another little trick I want to show you is you can draw a circle. Keep the Apple pencil held, scale new photos you wish. But then rather than doing anything else, press Edit Shape. And it shaped right there. And now you can edit shape perfectly the way you wish. Just drag the four corners there and it's an ellipse, but turned it into circle. Now let's do that with a Line Edit Shape. And there has to point to write like that. So pretty awesome. Or you can make three points for an arc. So you can choose that same with triangle, same situation, its shape. And there's the triangle points. Yeah, so lots of options. So that's a quick shapes and all that. So one last thing I would like to show you about quick shapes is if you go to the actions and preferences and then edit gesture controls, and then click on Quick shape. And I'm not going to explain every bit here. But you can go through this list and kind of figure out which gesture controls you like best for your quick Shape Editing needs. Anyways, that's quick shapes and how you work with quick shapes. Thanks so much for watching. 47. Text Overview: Welcome to this next video. And in these next following videos will be about text. You will learn how to craft a refined your text with precision. And you can control your typeface design and styling and various attributes about text. And you can import all your favorite fonts. And there's a lot of, a lot of ways you can do all of that, even with drag and drop. So we will be going over the interface and the basics in the next video. How to add text, how to act sauce, access all the stuff like that and tools in one panel. So that'll be nice. And the video after that we'll be going over Edit Style. And here you can preview your fonts in real time. You're going to adjust and track and different things like that with intuitive sliders. So a lot of what we've been going over in procreate involves sliders that can control texts is no different. And you can control the visual attributes of your text with sliders. Easy, nice interface. That's what I like about procreate. And lastly, in this series of three videos for text will be about fonts and much needed. It's what text is all about fonts. You can explore all the range of the default fonts that are included in procreate and also the IOS system fonts. Or you can bring your own favorite typefaces into play with procreate by dragging and dropping them if you wish. Or you can easily import them as well. So that is text. Hope, let's get to going to the next video interface, some basics. 48. Text Interface: Alright, so now we're going to be going over the text interface for procreate. We're going to learn how to add text into our workspace. And we can access all types of text editing tools in one panel. So let's learn how it's done. Text basics. So let's learn how to add, add an edit text. And yeah, so what you need to do is go to the toolbar here actions, and then purse bad and press add text. And there you have it. Add text. That's basically all you have. So you have a bounding box containing the word text and it will appear on your canvas right here. And you can edit it. So it could edit to edit, and we edited the text now, procreate the name of the app. And yeah, and this is the default font for procreate. Actually it's procreate font for the logo, I think so. That's probably why it's default. Now you can actually press Edit Style. And that will bring up a nice a keyboard type textbox interface. And when you add new text, your canvas toward texts is already highlighted and ready to be typed over like I just did where I replaced it with procreate. But when you press Edit Style, that the edit text interface appears right here, right in front of you. And yeah, so now there's a lot of things. First of all, I'd like to say to you is that you can move your text by just clicking, clicking, tapping, and dragging it like that. So that's another thing, but then you can also resize your bounding box. So I would like to mention that if you resize your bounding box, it only resizes it at this way. So the text inside will remain the same. You can just make it longer or more narrow. So, yeah, so we'll be going over fonts later in another video. But one thing I would like to talk to you about is vector text versus raster text. So you can keep your texts crisp, editable in a vector form for basic edits. Or you can rasterize it into a pixel based image in order to create more complex effects. So vector, vector texts can be resized up and down with no loss of quality. You can also keep type retyping and changing the content of your textbox with no loss of quality. So you can go here to Layers panel. And you can see here vector text is displayed with a type symbol in the thumbnail preview. And and the layer name is automatically set to the contents of the text box unless you manually change, of course. But in order to use the procreate tools for restaurant rasterize in your text. This it turns it into pixel data. Then it can be painted, distorted, emerged, and different things like that. So you can actually raster texts layers and, and their normal layers. So they are appear as normal layers like that. To do that, just tap on the text and pressed rasterize. And now instead of vector text, it is a raster restaurant layer. And now it's basically just an image. So see you can actually move around just like an image and you can distort it. And things like that warp, all things just like that. But let's go ahead and try to undo. Now back to vector. So with vector you can type new content, change font, style, spacing and alignment. We'll learn about that in the next few videos. Can add underlines, outlines in capitalisation, different things like that. So with both of them, vector and raster texts, you can move your text box around. You can change. Okay, let's press edit text so you can move your textbox around. You can change opacity. You can add clipping masks and layer masks. You can group texts with other layers. But when it comes to rest arising your text, only then you can use other procreate functions like selections, transforms, adjusted, some mergings and effects like that. But just remember, let's undo that. Ear. A signifies that it's vector text. And then if you rasterize it, it then becomes like a normal image where you see a little preview of it. So that's it for this video. Thanks for watching. 49. Edit Style: Edit style of text. So what you can do is you can preview your fonts in real time. You can adjust track and baseline and other settings you can do with intuitive sliders and you can troll alignment, other visual attributes. So let's see how it's done though. This Actions button, press, Add and then add text. We added text. Now you can do is you can just have that text in there and then press Edit Style. And that's how you get up the edit style. It's a clean interface and it puts all the textile and tools you need at your fingertips. So yeah, edit style panel. So going from left to right, we will go here. First of all is font. Over here we have font. And right here, you can zoom or scroll, zoom, scroll up and down, and you can see your font that you have. You can do is you can actually select different font you wish. And it will remember your font choice from. So if you close everything and create new text or member which font you choose. So that's font. And the name of each font is in the preview of the parents of that font. And yeah, just tap on it and you have your font. So number two here is style. And some fonts offer multiple widths and styles. And fonts frequently include regular italic, bold versions of themselves. And some also include things like ultralight or in this case, you see here extra black or something like that. But the Style section will change according to the font. Regular bold, regular light, bold. And yeah. It'll change wide thin. And yeah. Sometimes sometimes they don't have and sometimes they owe a lot of options. So pretty cool. Next is design, and this is the middle. Here with all these sliders. You can change the size and different things with these sliders. And yeah, so let's go from top to bottom. Size. You can adjust the size of the text within the text box. And the textbox will retain the width, but we'll change heights accordingly. So of course you can change the width of the textbooks like that, but then you can change the font size like that. And then kerning. Kerning, I think that's how you say it. Just the spacing between individual pairs of texts so you can see how that works. Kearney. Yeah. And then there's tracking just the spacing between every letter in the block of text That's tracking, ok. 0, leading it just the spacing between each line of text. So it can't do that right now. But let's go and made a nice little sentence here. Just so it now it go back to style. Okay, so this is how leading works. Here we go. Leading. Now you can see how that works. But basically it just the space in between each line of text. And then baseline, this kind of moves it up or down in the box. Yeah. And then opacity. When opacity is. So next is attributes. You can change the alignment of your text, middle, left, right, or justified, stuff like that. You can underline it. You can have like this outline Pipe feature or you can have it all caps. So that's attributes. And when you're done, just press done. And yeah, let's click it and do the styles. Procreates. Awesome Preston at, so that is that how to edit styles in procreate. Thank you so much for watching. 50. Fonts: Fonts. So next we'll be talking about fonts. And in procreate, you can explore a range of default procreate fonts. And then there's also IOS system fonts. Or you can bring your own favorite typefaces into play with the Import button and also drag and drop options. So what you wanna do is go to the tool that'll actions icon, button, press, Add, and then press Add Text. And so now we have texture. We've discovered how to edit the text and stuff like that already. But now we're going to be talking about fonts and you can get started right away with a bunch of preloaded fonts. So procreate ships with three default fonts. And the procreate fonts are IE, NA impact and Jack Armstrong Beeby, IE, I think. But anyways, so I Ina Let's try to go find it. Let's go to there we go. So yeah, I INA is a sans serif font. It's clean, readable typeface, perfect for simple and serious use. Next, let's go to impact. Another bold and admits attention getting font for like headers and signage and stuff like that. And then let's go to Chuck Armstrong. Were Jacques need to remember my alphabet. Charcot, right below him part. It's, you know, it's a more of a playful comic conspired font designed mainly for comic letters and stuff like that. But then also the rest of these fonts here, all of these other fonts, like the default type fonts you find, they are just the default fonts that come with every IOS device. So your iPad almost comes with a 100 built-in fonts you can use freely in your art and design. And these typefaces range from playful to professional. Cursive. Hadn't written, handwritten, typed, type written and done tons of variety of different fonts, about a 100 or so. But yeah, you can preview every font available to you on your iPad with Crick scroll, like we've been doing. You can just preview and move them around. And you can edit your text to urine. And you can edit your texts. We showed you how to do that, but then editing styles here. And yeah, but another thing I would like to say is you can actually import fonts. So if I add fonts here, I could precedent import them. But you can also drag and drop them from Matt. Yeah. So you could also AirDrop but you can drag and drop. You can use the files out, but you can bulk import your favorite fonts as well. So procreate can import TTC, t0, tf and OTF font files. So, but one tip though is that if you are fonts or in a zip file, you need to unzip it to then import it into procreate. Yeah. Anyways, that's about it for that. Just remember, one thing I like to say is if you're making any art for commercial purposes or technically for display anywhere, you need to have permission. So for the font saw the fonts that come with procreate, you can use freely. But if you do import your custom fonts, make sure you have a license or make sure that it's a free font to use. Especially if it's commercial. Make sure that you have commercial license or permission. Anyways, that's fonts. Thank you so much for watching. 51. Animation Overview: Animation is what we're going to be covarying mixed. So this is an overview of what we'll be covering and all the animation videos coming up. So we're done talking about text. So next is animation. And procreate has a simple and robust interfaced aimed at animators. Leader nights, wonderful. So Animation assist offers essential features like onion skinning, instant playback, NO visual timeline, and the ability to swiftly edit and manage both individual frames and then animation as a whole. And you can share your movie art with the world in a variety of formats, will be discovering all of this. So the first video will be about the interface and the basics of animation and procreate. And so you can master animation fast with professional oceanographic tools and a clean and simple interface. And then the video after that, we'll be about all about the options and how to adjust your options for individual frames of your animations. And then the video. After that, we'll be settings how to change the timing parents in attributes of your animation. And then lastly, the video, the last video about animation will be about how you can share your animation in different formats, like a movie or animated GIF or some. So anyways, thank you for watching. Let's dive into. 52. Animation Interface: Welcome to interface and basics of animation. So we're gonna be learning about the interface of how to deal with animation and stuff in procreate. So let's master animation fast with procreates, professional motion graphics tools. And I think you'll be impressed how clean and simple they actually are. First of all, we have to activate it. So to invoke animation assist, which you need to do is you need to tap the wrench icon in the top left, the actions bar right there. And then you need to go to campus button right there. And the kit then tap animation Assist right there. And the animation assistant interface is now active. So to exit the animation assist, all you have to do is then undo that, but turn on animation assist. So now let's close off, close that. And so let's learn about animation assist. So this helps you master animation fast with a nice little timeline and has all your frames. There's onion skinning to help you keep track and Weaver progress. There's instant playback and there's a lot of settings. So let's dive right in. So one thing to keep a note is all your layers in your document will now be shown in the animation assist as frames in a timeline. So your canvas is opened up, hears this white screen right here. And it displays your current selected animation frame, just one frame here and its full capacity. But when you first open animation assist, it has onion skin frame, script squeeze the middle onion skin frames. And there's switched on by default. But you can draw and paint on your canvas as normal. But your changes will be, there will be affected on the currently selected frame in the timeline. And so the timeline, it represents every frame of your animation as a thumbnail. And it is similar to the Layers palette, Palette button. It turns sideways here. And so the bottom layer of your Layers panel will be a first for the far right on your timeline. So yeah, it shows the frames in chronological order from left to right. So you can navigate through the timeline in a few ways. You can tap to jump to it, drag the timeline back-and-forth, flick the timeline for rapid scroll, and then you're, you're currently selected frame is underlined in blue. Will actually learn about that. We'll also learn about how to play and pause it and add frames and frame options. So, but let's, let's go ahead and dive in a little bit here and learn how it's done. So let's just draw a bouncing ball add frame. And now you can see here onion skinning, I believe is what it's called. It helps. And it shows you the timeline here. So you can really understand how to do this course. This is a simple animation. Not so amazing. Just to illustrate the point. Then you press play and you can see the animation is working. It's a little ball. That's not very nice, but it works and you press pause. But yeah, like I said before, you can switch through the frames like this, just tap and drag through the timeline back and forth. Well, that's a good overview of the interface of animation. The interface, the interface, stuff like that. So let's continue on. 53. Animation Options: Alright, so for animation, there's many options you can have. So you can add x-axis and adjust options for individual frames of your animations. So let's see how that's done. What you can do is you can hold on your animation. Just tap on it, and then it will. You can hold or you can duplicate your can delete frames in your animation. So let's see, step-by-step. Just tap on a frame, any frame. Just tap frame. Alright. Let's do more like in the middle here, okay? Tap a frame and you can just hold duration and Hold Duration, kinda make sense. But I'll know the thing I would like to say is in the next video we'll be talking about settings. So none of that will be covered in this video, but we'll be talking about that in the next video. We're just talking about this a little pop-up window right here. Frame Options. Yeah, so Hold Duration, you're going to just simply adjust the slider to hold a single frame for longer than normal. It's kind of creating a pause type moment. So it's just actually do that. And you can see we've created three frames for it to be held. So play. You can see there's a bit of a delay. So let's go back to that frame and let's actually hold it for a little more. And now you can see there's a quite a delay. So let's pause. Go back to the frame, and let's go back to like a delay of three or something like that. So one thing I would like to mention is the maximum can hold is a 120 frames. But yeah. So use that as you will. You can adjust hold as you wish. And then of course there's duplicate and delete. You can quickly replicate or get rid of frame. Tap iframe to select it, tap it again to open frame options. To have duplicate, to create a copy of your selected frame beside it in a timeline or get rid of a frame. You can do undo that. So just keep that in mind. But so yeah, duplicating would be pretty good. You can duplicate and then you can just move with your selection so that, that's another option for animating. You can actually draw once if it's a static shape. And then just do duplicate, select, Move it, and stuff like that so that I could work as well. Now let's talk about foreground. So you hadn't, you need to select on this one. And there's a new option here. You can tap and hold foreground on. What this does is it creates a locked-in floating foreground layer for your animation. So a foreground locks or frame into place as a consistent foreground element that will appear over the top of every other frame of your animations. So if you add a character coming around the corner of a wall or something, that wall would be the foreground and then the character would walk out from there and stuff. So it's only the right most frame that can be signed as foreground. Let's go ahead and delete, de-select as foreground, and then vice versa. You can actually go to the very left and select a background. And this is what displays behind your character, background and foreground. So that's options for your animations. Hope you learned a little bit more about that. I'm sure you can imagine now by know how easy and amazing animating and procreate is and how fun it can be. So have fun with that. And next video we're going to be talking about is animation settings. This button right there. 54. Animation Settings: Alright, let's talk about settings. In settings you can change the timing, the appearance, and the attributes of your animations. So let's first get to the Settings menu. Just tap on Settings. You have the settings menu there. And in the right hand side, if your animation assist UI toolbar thing brings up the settings menu and this menu control settings for their overall animation and the animation assist interface. So we already talked about frame options, but now we're going to be talking about settings for low overall animation. Settings, frame per second. It's the speed of the animation. So Animation creates the illusion of movement by playing a series of successive drawings so fast that they blur together and seem to move. So a typical animation plays at around 12 unique drawings per second. And the cinema quality animation can be up to 24 drawings per second, more frames per second. The smoother the animation looks. You could also simply use frames per second to speed up and slow down the existing frames you have. Slow down in an animation either by slowing down the frames per rate, or by adding more in-between frames to your animation. So to change your frame rate, drag the frames per second timer, and you can set that anywhere from one, meaning one per second to 6060 frames per second. Now, 60 would be quite a lot, but it'd be really smooth. So 1212 frames per second was this sort of standard or whenever. So next is onion skinning. And so it's a semi-transparent copies of the drawings on either side of your current frame. So in traditional hand-drawn animation and maters used to stack sheets of drawings on top of one another over a light box. So the light shining through the thin paper would reveal the drawings around the current one. So this actually helped animators figure out what to draw next to create smooth and realistic movement. And this is called onion skinning because the sheets of animated paper were thin, light onion skins. So onion skinning function and procreate gives you the same ability to see transparency, opacity type overview of your animation surrounding your current frame. So frames that are right beside your current frame will be shown at as almost solid. Frames that are further away from it will progressively be more transparent. So you can see that right there. There, that's, that's onion skin. You see the whole animation, but a trill dark the one that you currently have. And you can actually change that. So 11, onion skin, 2, 3, 4 or max. And you can also change the onion skin capacity. So you can see that full max or grow like 30%, that's good. So Blend primary frame. By default, your primary current frame appears as solid on top of all secondary sprouting onion skin frames. But you can give it a more blend in transparent parents by toggling the blend. So you so like that. And then colors secondary frame. So this will, can see here, it colors the frames. So you could actually have a full opacity and see the colors, or just turn that off. So it's up to you. Lots of options there. Next is one-shot loop and ping-pong. So this sets your animation to play once, repeat on loop, or play in a forward and reverse loop. So the three buttons on the bottom, one-shot loop up ping-pong. So one-shot its iframe. So your animation will play all through from start to finish once and then it will stop. So let's actually play. And it stops. Loop. You see, it's, it's going to play and play, play ping-pong. It goes back and forth. So that's that, that's settings for animation. Thanks so much for watching. 55. Share Animations: Hello and welcome to sharing. Sharing class. This is where we learn how to share. Now. So it's going to be talking about sharing animations. So you can share your animations with the world with a variety of useful formats that are common in the world. So you can export your animation as an animated GIF, PNG or MP4, which they last one is a video. So obviously it's animated. But so anyways, on the top left, you can actually go here to the actions toolbar button and you can press share. And they're under shear layers is where that's where the menu you'll want to pay attention to because you'll find the formats for exporting animations. So each format uses your layers in different ways. So, but one note is only visible layers will be exported. But yeah, each one has different benefit, benefits. Benefits, no benefits. So let's look how that's done. So you can export all your layers from your artwork as an animated GIF. So that's right here. And one thing I would like to mention is that GIF, GIF, GIF is the most common and versatile format for web animations. I'm sure you've seen them before. If you look at memes or something, there's gifts out their gifts. And anyways. So yeah, just share as an animated gif if you wish, right there. And you can choose max resolution for better quality and larger file size. Or here we go, max resolution. You can also choose frames per second and different things like that. So this all adjusts or transparent background and different things web ready. There's also another option by yeah, let's cancel that for now. Another option is animated PNG. So PNG is ideal for animations with transparent elements. So you're gonna export your artwork is an animated PNG and can turn on transparent background. And that will be important for transparent options. Another is animated MP4. Of course, this is a video. Mp4 uses jpegs as the basis for its frames. And it offers a smaller size. It total. So it's a similar functionality to animated gifs or PNGs. But yeah, it uses JPEG as encoding for each frame. And one thing I know is that cannot have transparent backgrounds, but it is a smaller size, like I said. So anyway, there you can also choose max resolution or web ready and frames per second, things like that. Anyways, that is how to share your animations in procreate. 56. Selections Overview: Selections. This is our video today. It's an overview and we'll be talking about selections in the next few videos. So in procreate, there is four versatile selection methods and arrange of advanced options. And procreate gives you the power to adjust any part of your image with a fine control you need. So in the first video we'll be going over the interface and gestures. So with selections, we can quickly isolate parts of our art and we can repaint them, edit them, transform them, and plenty more things. So we'll learn about that. In the next video. We will learn about automatic selections. So we can instantly select areas of our art with a single touch. Pretty nice. Then we'll learn about freehand selections. And these are hand-drawn around your desired content. And this is a great approach to selection because it's free hand. It's nice. And yeah, so we'll be talking about free Hannah in a single video. And the video after that, we'll be talking about rectangle and ellipse selections. So sometimes you just need those simple shapes and selections. And procreate gives you those tools. Then in another video we'll be talking about advanced selections. And so you can have, use complex selections for robust and you can use your robust tools and procreate. And you can turbo charged your workflow and you can just make your life easier with advanced options. And then the last video in this section of selection videos is the settings videos. So we're going to learn about how settings we can choose specific types of settings to make our selections work better for us. So welcome to selections section of videos. Thank you for watching. 57. Selection Methods: Alright, so in this video we are going to be talking about how to use selections to quickly isolate parts of our art for repainting at it, seen, transforming and other things. So let's learn a little bit about gestures. So with an act of selection, you can protect the important parts of your artwork. And selections enable you to make a range of edits to an isolated area of your artwork. You can paint you it's mind. You can erase, you can fill, and you can transform a selected area without affecting anything outside of it. But before doing that, I'm just going to quickly draw some little something here. Alright, actually I'm going to really, let's just draw a circle. And just, just a few things. It really doesn't matter because we're just trying to get some selections done. So now let's learn how to create them. You can tap on the selection tab, and that brings up the selection tab. It's like the little squiggly S type line icon. And that's the section tab. And it brings up the selection tool bar right here. And it offers a range of ways to edit. These modes are explored in greater detail in the next few seconds. So yeah, I'm moving dotted line. What that does is it displays what you have selected. So you can see here the moving data and line that displays what we have selected. So you can do is you can actually, while drawing a selection, you can use two fingers to undo your last or three to redo. Draw this two fingers. Don't do. Draw, draw three fingers, two fingers to undo, three fingers to redo. So that's another thing. And then also, when you commit your selection, you can tap any other tool and that commits your selection. Now, instead of a dotted line, the area out so your selection is saved with semi-transparent moving diagonal lights. So let me show you how that works. And yeah, I just select it on any other tool and other thing you can do is just draw selection and then complete the selection. And that does the same thing. But yeah, and you can also edit. So once an area is selected, you can paint, smudge, race, fool, and transform the area. And you can preserve anything around it as it is untouched. But tap the tool you want to start. And you'll notice that both the selection button and the button you just tapped are now. Highlighted. So what we'll do is let's just zoom in here a bit. And let's make this selection here. I know this is completely not perfect selection, but it is what it is just for demonstration purposes. Alright, so there we have our selection. And now you can go ahead and start painting. Okay, let's go ahead and choose Read That way we can actually see what's going on. And it's kind of what what selections can do. It is magazine power selections best. But yeah, so to cancel the selection, you've made an exit back to your artwork. You just tap the selection button. But you know, it's that didn't cancel the artwork that we did. So you have to undo that and then just tap away and that cancels that. Or it commits it. So your saw the bread, we did it, it committed it and it saved. So yeah, the interface for this is, it's pretty nice, I think there. So let's come back to it. There's automatic. So automatic, kind of. Well, it's automatic. And you can just kinda see it's automatic. There we go. Here's tap things and whatever. But that's automatic. Let's go ahead and undo that. Do do that. Yeah, you can see these selection mode buttons. These buttons along the toolbar here at the bottom of the screen, they offer you four different ways to select your content. So when you first activate selection, it defaults to free form actually right there. This is just one of the four different methods to manipulate your content. All four options are explored more fully in the following videos, but I'll just give a brief summary. So automatic mode to select entire area with a single tap. Easily demonstrated. Yeah, and then freehand. It lets you draw your selections. It's also easily demonstrated. And then rectangle brings out a rectangle and an ellipse. Oops, ellipse. That also brings out ellipse. Anyway. So that's just a brief summary of what those selections do. So yeah, you can see here when you do, you can actually add selection. So we made one here, go to rectangle, and we made another, an ellipse. And you can see, you can just add selections, but you've also can remove, if you haven't selected the area that you wished, you can just remove it. So the way, the way to do that is it's this, it's equal, but it's the opposite of ADD. So once you have made a selection, you can use freehand rectangle or clips to select the area you want to edit and then just top remove. And so do you just tap remove, sorry, top remove. And now you can remove. So add a row move. So yeah. And then there's also invert. So invert inverts the selection. And then there's Copy and Paste. Yeah. But yeah, it's a simple tap delivers one of the most, it's one of the most commonly used features and digital art. You can copy your selection, they can paste it. But yeah. Let's go ahead and start again. Let's make it free hand selection to demonstrate and feather. So by default, selections have crisp edges, but sometimes you want a softer effect. It's just tap on feather and you can adjust the effect. Now, select save and load. Save and load. It's like oh place you can store your selections and you can use them over and over again. And then clear, that's a way to clear your selections. Anyways, that is an overview of the interface and gestures of selections. In the next few videos, we'll be talking about more in-depth about the automatic, the free-hand rectangle on the ellipse and some advanced features as well, some settings about selections. Thank you. 58. Automatic Selections: Hello there. So we're gonna be talking about automatic selections and procreate. And automatic selections are what you might think they are. You can instantly select areas of your artwork with this angle touch. So to create, to create automatic selections in your artwork in an instant, all you have to do is tap. So what you do first is selected selections button and then press automatic. And there we have it. So now we have it on the automatic tab. And now you can just tap tap areas that you wish to have and then take 22 fingers tap to undo, but just tap areas that you wish to have as your selected areas. Now. So what you should do is try selected an area with an automatic selection, then switching, switch to free hand, and then make fine adjustments to go like you could just select this and then freehand. And then you could actually do fine adjustments to the free hand. Of course, you can zoom in and do the fine adjustments. Of course that's pretty good. But if there's some adjustments that you wish, automatic, always the answer. But it's a good thing to just tap and get it done. But you can also change the threshold of your selection to take in more or less of your chosen area. So just tap there. And yeah, so you can do with the feather and that adjusts the threshold of your selection. And so this is just like color drop, the threshold for color drop. So I'll demonstrate that to you right now. Actually, we have to unselect. So color drop this threshold, colour dropped threshold with selections, automatic selections. That's what feathers. It's just like the threshold, just like the color dot threshold. So it's actually really useful. You'd also include more areas in your selection with a single tap, just continue to tap other areas until you've tapped the whole thing if you wish. But yeah. And when you're ready, you can just do that out of the selection mode. So now it's selected and then topos the selection mode to commit your changes. And so that's how that's done. And then of course you can cancel your changes as well. Exit back to your artwork. And, but yeah, so that is automatic selection. It's really useful. Thank you for watching. 59. Freehand Selection: Welcome to freehand selections. This is where you can hand draw around your desired content. For an intuitive approach to selection, you can draw to make a freehand selection could tap to use the polygon lines or you combine both approaches to create complex shape. So let's look at this. But before we do that, we actually have two. Draw something in here too. So I'll just do something like this. That's good enough. And so what you do is just click on the selection button like normal and then tap on freehand that's already there. And then with freehand, you can go ahead and you can draw. Okay, let's undo that. Lets you can actually draw according to what you wish to say. I just wanted to take this piece there. Okay, so now you have drawn this selection here. Yeah, so that's freehand selection and that's that. So now you can actually start painting with a selection method. All we have to read and then, yeah, you can see that selected quite well with just freehand selection. And alright, so tap anywhere to commit the changes. Can also just go ahead and undo that as well. And so next let's look at polygon. So what these are is you can tap to place a corner node connected by straight lines to create a hard edged polygon type selection. So you can just tap your fingers or pencil on a canvas wherever you want to place corner nodes. And you can just tap around and out further corner nodes as you wish until they Linus connected. So let's go ahead and do that. Let's make a selection here for free when you just tap. And this is the corner nodes and you can just tap, tap, tap, like so. And then now the selection is done. And you can see that selection worked out pretty well as well done. So that's polygon corner node type selections. And two, commit. The changes you just tap anywhere, tap on every tool and it'll commit the changes. You can also take two fingers and tap to undo. So if we're unhappy with all of this, just tap two fingers and undo all of that. And we have now removed. And that's how you cancel. So that's freehand selection. Thank you so much for watching. 60. Rectangle and Ellipse: Alright, so in this video we're gonna be talking about rectangle and ellipse selections. Sometimes you need a simple selection, just like a rectangle or simple ellipse, shape. And procreate provides both the simple tools for you and it's easy so to create that, you can just go to the selection thing and you can do a rectangle. And then you can take and make yourself a rectangle. Or you can press ellipse and you can make your so in ellipse. So that works, works great. And yeah. But you can actually craft more complex selections by creating multiple rectangles in ellipse or both. Like I said, showed you right here. Let's say we wanted a rectangle or almost square right in there and a bit big ellipse right here. And you'd create modern art and stuff. So, so even with the selections on, you can still zoom and stuff like that. So to commit your changes, just press that. Ok. Yeah. Yeah, just to commit your changes, just apply your selection. By working on your selection. And when you're happy with your selecting, tap, any other tool to begin, edit, senior selection is tap any other tool and then it's done. You've committed your changes, but always remember to cancel them. You can undo with your fingers, you can undo your work. So we selections, you can do a lot of things. You can color drop. So let's while you can paint, you can slide, you can erase, you can call or drop your new can transform was go ahead and do two examples of these. So killer drop, drop. And there we have committed changes. But then, like I said, if you counsel that you can counsel them by undoing and stuff like that. Well, that's that. That's the simple shapes of selections. Thanks for watching. 61. Selection Settings: All right, so this is the last video in our selections section of videos in this going to be about settings. So you can see your way clearer with selections with settings to adjust the selection mask visibility. So let's get going here. We can change the visibility of a selection mask. So let's actually go and do a selection mask. It does not matter what, but what selection you do. But let's go ahead and do free-hand as well, just for whatever. And then press the toolbar, the actions button, and then go to preferences right here. And in there, you can have the settings down all the way at the bottom here, rapid undue delay is not, but selection mask reusability is. So you can see this is all that there is four settings really for selection mask. And it can go all the way. A 100% has a black. I'm selection, overview, Overlay. Or you can go down to almost nothing. 0%. I wouldn't make much sense, but I like pretty strong, really shows you what. But you could go like 50% as well. Can also tap there, okay, so just 50% and let's try to get right 50%. There we go, almost, almost. There we go. So that's that, that's a selection settings, only one's heading. So technically it's not settings, but I did want to show you that it's pretty useful. Thanks for watching. 62. Transform Overview: Hello there, welcome to transform. This is an overview of the next few videos that it will be all about transform. So transform is a way to sketch or sorry, stretch, move, and manipulate any part of your images for a fast and easy edits. So the first video, we'll learn about the interface in the gestures. So we'll just learn the basics on how to rotate, flip, fit to the screen, make magnetic adjustments. Use touch shortcuts to nudge zoom, pan and tweak image interpolation for crispy scaled results. And then in the video after that, we will learn about the free form. So we will use procreates simple and intuitive free form transform mode to scale NorTech content. And then we also use in the next video after that uniform. So uniform, it's a transform switch slowly moves, scales, rotates your layer well, it perfectly preserves the original image proportions. And then the next will be distort. This is really important. Distort. You can create convincing 3D. You can also tell, make angled effects in a snap. And yeah, so distorts really nice and then warping equally as awesome. So smoothly, you can fold, warp your artwork can mind-blowing dimensions with the work tool. And then lastly to finish up that group of transform videos will help interpolation. There's more than one way to interpolate a pixel. So here in this last video, we will fine tune, we'll fine tune our understanding of the engine behind the Transform tool. So thank you for watching this video. Let's learn all about transform in procreate. 63. Transform Interface: Alright, so welcome to this video. It's going to be that about the interface and gestures of transform. So in this video, we will learn the basics of rotating, flipping our fitting to the screen, making magnetic adjustments using touch shortcuts to nudge, zoom and pan and tweak image interpolation for crispy scaled results. So let's first learn about the interface. With the interface of this, we can manipulate the size, shape, and position your number an object with simple touch controls. So the transform buttons simply here, but the layer is empty. So we need to do, let's go ahead and, and my Apple Pencil is dead. So let's have that charge. But let's go ahead and just draw with her finger here to some something larger. Big chateaux, whatever. Just, it really doesn't matter. We're just, this is demonstration purposes. So now you can just click on that kind of cursor icon right there and know what that is, is it's the transform button on the top bar, that's the arrow type symbol. It's a transform button. When you tap transform button, it will automatically select the contents of your current layer and it will bring it to the transform toolbar. And so for number two, it's the bounding box. And right here is the bounding box with these little blue. So when you activate that transform with transform button, automatically selects the contents of the current layer. So you need to keep that in mind. The current layer that you have active. And the selection appears as a bounding box and it's outlined with moving lines, with dots, little blue dots. And you can drag it anywhere, inside or outside. So inside you can move it around and drag it in anywhere. And this little but yeah. So that's what that is. It's called the bounding box. Next is transformed nodes, and that's what those little blue things are. You just click on them. And so let's click on free form. And that's what transformed nodes are. Tap on those. And that's what makes it move, stuff like that. Now, for number four, there's a rotation node that's a little green, little green node, little green button, whatever. Okay, so next is the transformation methods. Preform uniform distort and warp. So the button along the transform toolbar at the bottom of the scene offers for different ways to manipulate the size and shape of the content in your bounding box. So when you first activate transform, the default is free form method. And this is just one of the four different methods to mint it, incipient, manipulate your content. All four options are explored right now. So preform. What this does is it lets you stretch and squish your selection in any direction while maintaining well, maintaining nothing. So it's not maintaining any original aspect ratio, it's just squishing and moving around. As I wish. Uniform is a little different. It maintains the aspect ratio of the image, but you can still stretch your content and rotate it. Stuff like that. Distort is a little interesting. So it makes it easy to create parents of perspective. So that's now you can see that sort of a bit of perspective in there. And that's what the story is. And warp, It's a little different. So warping is just what you see here. That's what worked. The most complex effected a place to mesh. It allows you to move nodes outside of the mesh and drag stuff like that. So now there's no or little thing you can press advanced mesh and you can actually have more nodes to move around. So that's useful. But anyways, and so next, let's take a look at magnetics. All right, so going back to free-form, Quicken on magnetics. What this does is it keeps your transformations are aligned and in proportion. So when you move and transform your content with magnetics on blue lines will pop up on the screen into indicating particular position scales, rotations that might be helpful. So that helps more in the uniform. So that's magnetics. It helps though if you have other artwork involved. Alright, there we go. Now it's working because the warping had problems, so other artwork would be helpful. But when you have a square bounding box like this, this is what it comes in, useful magnetics. So that's magnetics. And next is just flip. That's simply flip minutes really useful. This is really useful if you're drawing. You can flip your horizontally or vertically, of course. And now another one that's interesting is fit to screen. That's interesting. Rotate 45 degrees. Pretty good. Alright, so that's kind of overview of that. And now the next thing I would like to tell you is it's actually getting it into the inter, interpolation. But by linear, you can tweak how procreate adjusts the pixels in your image when transforming it for best results, interpolation is the method used to adjust the pixels in an image that has been scaled, rotated, or transformed. You'll find the setting as a circular icon. Second, from the right hand side of the transform bar. By default, in interpolation is set to nearest when you tap nearest. So clicking here, interpolation. So nearest neighbor, okay? So when you're top nearest, you are offered three choices, each with its own advantages. So nearest neighbor uses information from the nearest pixel to the interpolated point. This creates a sharp inaccurate result, but can also have leave the image with the jacket edges. By linear. Interpolation considers a two times two area of pixels running the interpolation point, though Rena smoother image compared to the harder but more accurate result nearest neighbor. And by cubic is four times four and the same as before except it's four by four instead of two by two. Okay, the next is reset button. That's simply resets the whole thing to the original of what you had before, before any of these other little changes that you did. So next, let's brush up on some of the gesture in case you didn't learn about, but learn about it before. This is learning procreate from scratch, we need to know all of this. So just tap anywhere inside and you can move it. That's easy enough. You can actually just scale it like this two-finger pinch. So that's, that's easy enough. Next is zoom and pan. So normally pinching the canvas zooms in or out button transform mode. This gesture is used to scale the content. So if you need to zoom the canvas, hold the transform button. So just hold that transform button and I can zoom and pan the canvas as per usual. And when you're done, when you wanna commit, the changes, just tap a transform button once again. So thanks for watching. That is the interface and gestures of transform. 64. Freeform Transform: Alright, free form in the transform. And yes, and we're in Canada. So I am Canadian. That's why I have this shoe. But anyways, free form transform, you can use procreate, simple and intuitive free-form transform feature mode to scale and rotate content. So first let's make some content. It's needed to actually see how it's done. Dab a little stuff in there. And then you just click on this, the Trent's transform arrow button. And then we have the Bernbach. So for some reason. Okay, bounding box, why? Something's out there? There we go. Sometimes you have to erase around. So the bounding box is a little more exact, but so we have free form. You just select free form right there. And you can do is you can just move the preform box, bounding box anywhere you wish, just tap anywhere inside a to move the layer around. And like I said in previous videos, this will select the stuff that is on your active layer. Yeah. So outside of the box as well works. So you can tap inside or outside of the bounding box to move the content. Another thing is magnetics. It's nice to turn that on. And you can drag your image around the bounding box and it will perfectly align it to different magnetic snap type points horizontally, vertically, diagonally, and a bunch of different options. So magnetic flux is pretty nice. So let's turn that off for now. But you can also have non-uniform transform with the free form that we have here. So you can stretch your object in any way you like without preserving its original proportions. So uniform preserves its original proportions. But in free mode, you can stretch your layer in any direction and you can disregard the original proportions. So you can click this little node. You can see I stretch, stretch to completely according to what I wish, disregarding the original proportions, whatever you know. So that's decently nice. And so that's that. Next we have uniform transform. But, but later we'll have a uniform transform video. So why am I talking about that right now? It's because sometimes you can switch quickly between uniform and transform within free-form, uniform and freeform within free-fall. So instead of switching modes, there's shortcuts that allow you to scale an object 12, preserving its original proportions without leaving free. I'm free form mode, right? So yeah, you can just go ahead and do uniform transformed by taking two fingers and just scaling it as you wish. And what that will do is that will actually keep the uniform transform. Another shortcut is you can click magnetics. And that with magnetics will also be a uniform transform within free form. And so that's that, that's free-form transform in procreate. 65. Uniform Transform: Uniform. So that's what we're going to be talking about. Transform uniform feature. So the uniform transform feature, it can swiftly move, scale, rotate your layer while perfectly preserving your original image proportions. So let's make an original image like we have done before. Just some shadow, brush, whatever. And go to the Transform there. And let's go ahead and try to erase. For some reason. There we go. So now it's already in uniform. You just select uniform there. And what you can do is like before you can just tap and drag inside or outside of the bounding box. And it perfectly keeps your proportion. Also if you move it, scale it like this. It will also keep your proportions perfectly even if you select a note on the side like this. All perfectly proportions. And other thing is you quick magnetics, medic magnetics are really nice. You can make a showed you before and helps position your, your art magnetically and perfectly, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. So that's really nice. Well anyways, that's about it. For uniform transform, it's pretty simple. You just move it around inside or outside of the bounding box and you can scale it and don't work, don't forget also the rotate as well. So that's that. Thanks for watching. 66. Distort Transform: Alright, moving on. In this course, we're going to talk about distort transform. So distort creates convincing 3D tilt and angled effects in a snap. So actor, actor, activating, transform there, like that. Just touch and drag finger to move your layer selection. Just like the move. It's fairly standard across all of them. You can move it inside or outside of the bounding box. And that's nice but distort. Let's click on to Stuart. Yeah, so you can move around, but then you can actually create instant perspective by painting an object as though you're looking at it from a slight angle or straight ahead or something, you can also then distort it. So like you can paint it, say that something just the text or this thing right here. It's like a 2D. You're looking down at it. And now you can actually distort it. And you can see now it gives like a 3D type of effect. It's a three-dimensional surface. And another thing that distort has is a thing called shear. And shear is a way to angle an object to create the appearance of a depth with shear. So let's actually go ahead and undo what we did. And here's what she does. So to shear an object with transform mode, distort traps or mode, just tap any side node like this and you can share it like so. So that is distort and also has the ability to shear. So those are two really important things to know. Thank you for watching. 67. Warping: All right, so now we're moving on to something important in procreate and that's warping. So warping is a way you can smoothly fold and wrap your artwork in a mind-bending dimension. And warping does that. So what you're actually doing is you're warping your mesh. And you can move the warp mesh to rap and fold your content. So just go here to transform button and click warp right there. And so you can actually just Warp. So let's give it a quick try and really see that warping does do amazing drop. So that's what warping does. You can work as you wish. So it's just node control. So you can work parts of your image over other parts are underneath them. So just like that. And you actually can tap, move to front, move to middle, lived back. So you can choose if this warped thing goes under the other text are not Carolus see it because it's all black text. But now the thing I want to show you is advanced mesh. That simply does is it gives you more nodes to work with. And so we can do weird things with advanced mesh. Of course, another thing I would like to say is you don't have to only tap the nodes. You can actually tap the lines as well, and that moves the whole thing. But the nodes, nodes give you finer control. And when you're done, just click there. And now you are ticked dissolved, warped. Nick's watching. 68. Interpolation: Alright, so we're on our last video of the transforms, transform section of videos. And we're going to be talking about interpolation. It's more of an advanced feature, I suppose. So there's more than one way to interpellate a pixel. And you can fine tune. And it's an engine that is behind the Transform tool that is quite useful. So let's first explain how interpolation works. Interpolation is the method used to adjust pixels in an image. One is scaled, rotated, or transformed. So imagine your image is a single red dot, just one pixel. Fact, Let's see if we can actually achieve that. Something like this. Ok, there's many pixels in there, but let's see how that works. So yeah, just imagine this image is a single red dot. It's just a few pixels and it's sitting in a grid of pixels. But you want to make it bigger. So when you transform that these pixels, the grid stays the same but the red dot grows. But to do this, the red, red dots, they need to take up more space on the grid where it was just one or few pixels before. Now it must take a bunch more pixels or more, whatever. And procreate needs to figure out where do those pixels sit and what they look like. So basically it's looking at the image you have here, this pixel thing, and it's making guesses to fill in the blanks. So what, what's your picture is expanded and as it takes up more space. Now imagine this happening to every single pixel in a full illustration when you've got different color pixels next to each other. So the interpolations, how procreate figures out how many more or less pixels it needs to give the image to make it any size or shape and how those two position those pixels so the edges between different colors in your artwork stay as clear as possible, even though they've been stretched, squashed, or rotated in that grid. So yeah, every time you resize an image, the interpolation process happens again. You need to keep this in mind. So after a few times, you might start to see the edges in your image degrade in quality and look a little fuzzy. So think of this like making a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy, you will lose a little more quality Each time you transform. So try to avoid repeatedly transforming the same piece of that your image. So in procreate, there's a few different interpolation methods. So you can transfer your, your image with these three different emit methods. So let's go to the transform button, go to free form, something like that. And click there, interpolation menu right there. And yeah, so the label though, you have to keep in mind, will change according to the nearest bi-linear by cubic. So let's talk about nearest neighbor. Nearest neighbor is the simplest and fastest type of interpolation. It only appears. It only considers one pixel on each side of the edge. And when calculating how to display the transformed result, it can sometimes make the end result seem a little jagged aid and fuzzy and things. But it's good for quick and simple transformations. And it's generally just fine. Next is bi-linear. By linear interpolation considers an area of two times two area of pixels surrounding the edge and delivers a weighted average of all four. It takes more processing time, but it will usually give you a smoother result than the nearest neighbor. And unlike minor by cubic, interpolation kinda considers an area of 16 surrounding pixels. And it gives more importance to the pixels that are closer to the edge. Because of this, it is the slowest of the three methods, but offers the sharpest and most accurate results. So let's try a nearest neighbor, have that on. And yeah. So now you can see after interpolating it, let's put nearest neighbor does listen, child try by cubic, cubic zone. And now you can see it's just a much more smoother result. Yeah. But most of the time, it doesn't really matter because it's so far away. Just some things that you need to keep in mind. Thank you for watching. 69. Adjustments: Alright, so in this video we are going to be talking about the next couple. Next doesn't, whenever videos all about adjustments in procreate, there'll be an overview of those. And so adjustments, they help you polish your artwork to perfection with professional image effects. And you can make industry level color adjustments with procreate. So you can tweak your image with capacity, sharpen noise in a variety of blur options, and create mind, but bending effects in an instant using the power of liquefy. So the video will have dedicated to the interface and it will give your, give you some knowledge of how your art can become professional with the finishing touches of this of these features. And the only way to know how to do limits to no interface. So that's a video in and of itself. Next, we'll be talking about opacity, where you can address the transparency within your artwork. That's really important. We talk about blurring. So there's smooth smoothing and softening of your image with a Gaussian Blur. But you can create the illusion of fast movement with motion blur. And you can also use perspective blur to add zooming and directional effects. Next, we'll be talking about sharpen, and I'll show you how to enhance the fine detail in your image for crisp, focused look. And next we'll be talking about noise. Each one of these earnest separate video, by the way, talking about noise. So you can add noise to image for an organic feel or an old film stock type situation. And then a video after that is liquify. Liquefy. It warps your pixels and layer into, in five different ways to create mind-bending effects. And then another video we'll be talking about Clone. So you can instantly paint one part of an image onto another part of the canvas for quick and natural duplication. And lastly, in this section of videos, we'll be talking about color adjustments. So you can take your art to the next level with the industry standard color adjustments tools. So you can adjust the hue, saturation and brightness. But you can also tweak, tweak your tweak, tweak your color balance. And you can experiment with curves and other helpful histogram type stuff. And you can recolor parts of your image with ease. So I hope you enjoy the next several videos all about adjustments. 70. Adjustments Interface: Welcome to this video. In the first of the adjustment videos, it'll be about the basics of the interface. So obviously, with all the adjustments you can give your art professional fishing touches with extraordinary capabilities in the address. So let us learn how to access the adjustments menu, the adjustments button, it's right there. That's the adjustments button. To start to tap that button and menu bar, and you'll find it's the magic wand kind of standing for indicating that it's the adjustments stuff. So with this menu can polish your image with two different types of adjustments. So there's filters. These are the first row here, opacity to clone. This is a way, it's the top half, half of the adjustments menu, and it offers seven powerful filters for fast and simple image adjustments and fun special effects. And you can just tap filter to activate it and then adjusted using the On-Screen gestures. And now I'll show you all of this soon, like within a few seconds. But after that and the second half, the bottom half of the menus dedicated to color adjustments. And it is designed with professionals in mind. These four versatile tools are used to tweak and balanced colors in your image. You can even make sweeping recolor changes in an instant. And you can tap and adjustment to activate it than simply. And you can apply it using the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. But I should say when activated, an adjustment affects only the current active layer. So if you're procreate has a bunch of layers and won't work. So you have to select the current active layer and it will affect that. So now let's look at filters. You can blur, you can sharpen, you can text dries, and you can liquefy your image. Procreate offers a range of special effects with these seven powerful features. So from top to bottom, opacity. So you can make your image transparent. You can change the transparency of your current layer by dragging your finger left to right. Just click on capacity. And you can drag your finger left to right. And that's a passive Gaussian blur. You can smooth and soften your image, can give your image soft, out-of-focus look. Can drag your finger right or left to apply an even literature your current layer. And this is even burglars, so blurs everything. That's what that does. And motion blur. So this creates the illusion of fast movement. So you can create the appearance of speed and motion by playing a streaky blur to your layer in the direction of your fingers. So it's motion blur. And you can put the direction of your finger that's motion blur. Next is prospective burglar. It creates a zooming him blasting type effect. So you can drag a disk into place to set the center point. So just go to respect to blur can drag this. And then, yeah. So like I said, a blasting type technique that is prospective blur. Next is sharpen. She can bring out the detail in your image for a crisp and focused look. You can drag your finger left or right to set the level of sharpening you want to apply for your image. So that sharpens it. And see that worked a little bit. Next is noise. So a noise that adds a bit of a grain to your image for an embryonic feel or an old film stock or newsprint feel, you can increase or decrease the graininess of your image by dragging your finger left to right noise. And you can see now it's a lot more green. Just a bit more gradient, decent effect to have on hand. Next is liquefy. This is a thing you can morph the pixels in your layer to create a variety of mind-bending warp effects. So you can pay extraordinary liquefy elements into your image with the touch of a finger. Select from push, twirl, pinch, expand crystals and edge modes control the size, distortion, pressure, and momentum of the effects. Tweak the amount reconstructor image this way. So just go to liquefies push. And it goes like that. Twist right goes like that with left. Whoops. Okay, pinch pensioners like that expand crystals, well, edge reconstruct. Reconstruct. You just drag it over all of it to reconstruct it back to its original. You can adjust the strength and you can reset it. So that is, that is that next is clone. You can instantly paint one part of image onto another part of it for quick and natural Duke duplication. So you can replace one part of an image with another part instantaneously. Its position at disk right here. Position the disk over there and see that's quite amazing. That's clone. Alright. Next is adjustments. You can take your art to the next level with industry standard color adjustments. So bottom half is the adjustments menu and it's devoted to color adjustments and offers a variety of ways to create perfectly balanced images. So let's look at this hue saturation and brightness. So you can tweak the color value, vibrancy and lightness in your image with simple sliders can quickly adjust the hue saturation and brightness using sliders. So brightness, Well, just that saturation or Hugh. So let's go ahead and reset all of those. Next is color balance. So color balance, you can correct her, stabilize your color scheme by changing the balance of hues that make up your right. So you can finally adjust the tonal values of your artwork with sliders for color balance and buttons to apply changes only to key tones of your artwork highlights mid tones and shadows with, for example. So and see that cyan, magenta and yellow color balance. Next is curves. And so curves is interesting. You can modify the color and the total balance, tonal balance. So your image and one smooth motion using the intuitive curve graph right here. So you can tweak the overall gamma and mounts of red, green, blue, and your image using an intuitive curd and helpful in Instagram that clearly represents the distribution of your code. So that's, that's, that can see colors or you can change them quite a bit. Or you can select one of the red, green, blue options. So that's that. Now recolor. Let's just undo this until we're ready. So recolor quickly change, isn't replaces areas of color. And you can see the results with a live preview. Drag the cross hairs to select the color you want to replace. Select a new color using the color button and use the flood slider to set the threshold. So recolor, you have read selected here. Let's go ahead and select blue. You can set the threshold like that. And you can drag this cross hairs around. And you can see it recovers according to where you're placing it. Definitely out an open area. Does that better? Flood and all of that. But let's press canceled for now. So that is the interface of the adjustments in procreate. Thank you for watching. 71. Actions Overview: Alright, so this course is coming to a close. Not quite yet. There's a bit more videos left, but the last group of videos will be about actions and procreate. So actions are a way you can customize procreate to suit the way you work with. With a full featured Actions menu. You can insert photos and text. You're going to adjust your canvas on the fly. You can share your images and a variety of formats. You can create an export time-lapse videos of your artwork. You can also tweet your interface and touch settings and a lot more. So we'll be going over the interface. And this is where you can tweak your procreate to your liking. And so the robust Actions menu, it offers you total control over everything from your settings to how you share. And then we'll be going over the ad ad feature. So this is where you can import images to your Canvas so you can add text or you can use the Clipboard for cut copy and paste actions will also be going over the canvas. So you can make sweeping changes to your campus from one simple menu, you can crop, resize and flip. Engage the power of animation assist. You can add drawing guides and excess detailed technical information about your artwork. Next, also would be going about sharing, sharing your art. So there's a lot of formats you can share. You can export individual layers as PDFs, spoke images, or even looping animations. We've already gone over that, but it's part of the actions. Another one is video. You can record your your art, the process videos as a time-lapse video, you can share that pretty nice feature, procreate. And also we'll be going over preferences where you can customize, procreate to suit your workflow. So you can adjust the look of the interface you can marry or Canvas to a different screen and connect to a screen or you can use third part, third-party stylus is that are not the Apple Pencil, but a different stylists. You can also tweak the pressure curve and personalize your gesture controls. And then the last part of this course, The last topic will be about help, where you can, you can keep procreate, running smoothly and you can find answers to your questions with the helpful resources that I will mention. So thank you so much for watching. Let's get into accidents. 72. Actions Interface: Alright, so welcome to the last video of this course. Thank you so much for watching. And yeah, so this'll be a summary of the Actions menu, and it's a robust menu and offers you total control of everything from settings to sharing. And I was gonna say are we already went through it a lot in previous videos, but this is just a good general summary of it covering some features that I missed and like a goodbye. No. But yes. So the Actions menu, it's just a straightforward menu. It gives you access to tools, Settings, interface, appearance, and other core controls. And it's just the wrench icon here, Actions button right there. And it's divided up into tabs, add canvas, share video preferences and help. And there's lots to discover an actions. We've already mentioned a lot of it, but let's, let's just go from tab to tab. So the Add tab, you can insert file, photo, can take a photo, add text, cut, copy and paste, or even copy the canvas entirely. So yeah, we've demonstrated these features, features pretty well already in this course. The next one is canvas. And here is all the information where you can quickly edit the canvas. So you can crop and resize your canvas. And there's animation is SIFS, assist and drawing guide. So that really helps. Flipped horizontally and vertically. We've already showed you that and that's really important. That's really important if you're drawing a character, something, flip it horizontally, and that will make it all better. And then Canvas information and then share. So here you can share your artwork in a variety of formats. The procreate file format, the PSD file format from Photoshop, PDF, JPEG, PNG, tiff, all the major formats. But then non blow that you can actually show. Share Shell, share individual layers, just your active layer. Keep in mind. Next is video. And so here you can record your artistic progress to share to the world and you can toggle the time-lapse video function on or off. So keep in mind if it's on your art file here will take more space on your iPad. Minis fits off. It will take significantly less space because it, alright, so when you create a canvas, you can actually decide what level of quality the video will be. And so if it's 4K and 60 frames per second, just warning you that can take up some size. But yeah, next is Preferences. So preferences is nice. You can manage the look and feel of your procreate interface and touch controls. So you can switch your interface to light or dark. You can switch your right hand or left hand. You're actually switch on a brush cursor. Yep. Project canvas. Ok, so that project Canvas, so that means you can project your canvas off onto a monitor. You can connect a third party stylists. And we've already talked about pressure control is gesture controls and all these other preferences. Lastly, is help. So you can explore useful links and information to enrich your procreate experience. You'll discover the latest video summary of what's new and procreate. And you explore links to discover where procreate customer support is the portfolio site. There's videos and you can restore your purchases in here. And there's advanced settings, thinks like this. Or you can leave a review of the app. So thank you so much for watching this course. That is it. That is, we're done learning procreate from scratch. We literally went through everything in this app. I hope you learned a lot. Let me know if you have questions. And OPO, good day, good week, good month. And I hope this really sets your set you up for good procreate iPad drawing experience. Thank you so much for watching. Bye.
