About This Class


Procreate is a mighty art and illustration tool! I'm falling in love with more and more. It has such a rich set of features. And recently they've added basic animation support. Which is crazy. The fact that you can create amazing illustrations and animations using one or two apps on your iPad is mind-blowing. It makes the iPad-only workflow even more possible. It means you don't need a Mac or PC anymore. And I love this.

Being able to animate is a fantastic and super versatile skill to have in your tool belt. It's fun. It adds life to your work. And it opens up a new world of possibilities. With this new skill you'll be able to:

  • Create storyboards.
  • Breathe life and movement into your artwork.
  • Create fun animations to bring your work more attention + engagement.

The class covers both practical and theoretical aspects of animating in Procreate. And if you're new to the world of animation I break everything down and explain things in an approachable Procreate-centric way. The class covers the following topics:

  1. Animation basics
  2. Procreate animation preparation
  3. Creating looping animations
  4. Animating existing artwork
  5. Export GIFs and videos, all on your iPad
  6. A bunch of Procreate tips and tricks

Having some experience in Procreate will help, but you should be able to pick things up pretty quickly if you're new to Procreate. If introducing movement and life into your work sounds like fun, come take the class!

I can't wait to see what you create!
