About This Class


Have you been curious how all those settings work in Procreate Brushes?  Do you wish you could create your own brushes, but you are not sure where to start?

Then join me in this fun class, where we explore the most popular brush settings and techniques to get you started on creating your own custom digital brushes in Procreate on the iPad.

This class is all about exploring and experimenting.  We will create one source image and then use this one image throughout the class to create many different brushes simply by changing the brush settings.  I will show you the most popular settings to use and how these settings work together to achieve unique digital effects.

What We'll Explore In This Class

  • Basic brush setting overview
  • Creating a source image
  • Working with a multi toned source image
  • Streamline Feature
  • Sizing and Opacity Options
  • Scatter and Jitter Effects
  • Tapering Styles
  • Pressure sensitivity
  • Fill Brushes
  • The Painted Look with the Wet Mix Feature
  • Blend Modes for Brushes
  • and so much more

I will be walking you through 20 custom brushes while we explore the settings and the many features available to create beautiful and fun digital brushes to use in the Procreate App on the iPad Pro.  I've kept this class in real time so you can explore along with me with at a pace that is easy to follow.

This class is for beginners and intermediates.  Some understanding and previous experience with Procreate is beneficial, but not necessary.  

I have included a PDF download of each of the settings for all 20 custom brushes we create in this class.  In each lesson we explore many different ideas and setting positions to create the resulting brushes. This handy reference will help give you the final settings we end up with for each brush we create.

what you need:

  • iPad Pro
  • Apple Pencil
  • Procreate App

Note: this class is done on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil in Procreate 4.0  Although some brushes will work without the Apple Pencil, I highly suggest to get the full benefit of this class to have the supplies listed above.
