1. Intro: Hi everyone, welcome, welcome to my new class about procreate 5X. They just updated the software not too long ago. So we're gonna go through some basic features. I'm going to be focusing on lettering. But as you will follow along, you would see that a lot of the features can be used for illustration or design as well. So we're gonna go through step-by-step of mostly just the effects and well, we can do to add some special effects to your lettering. I won't go through the gestures are more of a technical new features. It's more of design and special effects. So if you're ready, let's just get started. 2. Canvas and grid: Okay, so for less than one, we're going to start with just opening a blank canvas. You can open any size that you want. I'm going to go from my usual, which is a twelv by 12. And completely blank. I'm going to change the color to black. And when I'm working on the lettering piece, the first thing that I like to turn on as the guide, so you go where the guy usually is, the bat hasn't changed and you just turn on the joint Guide. Now, I'm going to the Edit drawing gadgets to show you something really interesting. Previously. The previous version of procreate, every time you open into guide, it will be something like this size. So I would say like maybe 250. I can put it on the exact amount, but it's always 250. And no matter how many times you use the guide, it was always going to open up on our blank canvas just like this. And it was kind of like not a big deal, but it's kind of annoying to me now, once you set up your grid size, I like smaller size just because I like detail, I always leave around a 100 between a 100130 and once you set that up, every time they, you, Let's just get out of procreate. And I'm gonna open a brand new canvas. Go ten by ten this time, right? Blank. If you go in there, turn on your drawing guide. It will be wearing was so to me that's just save extra five seconds. So it might not be too much for you, but for me is a huge thing. So that's the first thing that I noticed. And this update is that guy is going to be where you set the last time and it's not going to change now you, if you change to something smaller or bigger, next time you open your canvas. For a brand new canvas is going to be that size as well. So let's go ahead and open sketching. And I'm going to get the 6P vessel. And I'm going to draw some. Then I don't know, like dream with extra flourish in there. Or if it all like this, you can go and add a text. So either add text. Now this looks a tiny bit different, but it's not a big deal. If you updated your iOS, you're going to notice that you have the option to use the scribble. I didn't like it, so I just left the way it is. And an order just start typing. You need to delete this tax otherwise is going to be quoted in there. So I'm just going to click on the x-ray here on your right side. And if you just touch it, you're going to get your menu bar so you can select whatever you want. So first thing I'd like to change is the font and it's right at the top. And it's going to give you all that, although the menu of options, so I like to choose something that is a serif font. Let's go for Rockwell. That's one of my favorite fonts actually. And here everything is the same. You can choose the size, kerning, tracking, and everything else. You're all the attributes of there. So I'm going to put just, and oops, I guess I need to typing. Did it go into the layer or I did edit text. So let's go ahead and do dream. And if you tap it, I tap it twice just because that's how I do it. But I think if you tap it, wants this rule up here again. So let's go ahead and go back. And I won't bolt. And I'd like to reduce the size of this big box right here. And then done. And another thing that now with the update, at least I didn't notice that before. When you try to increase or decrease the size of whatever you have on your layer, you're going to see the signs that you're increasing too. So you actually have a more precise if you need like something like pixels exactly. A size into your canvas is going to show it right here. Or if you just like to know what size they are right here. So I'm just going to be this size right here. So here we need to. Restaurant. Restaurants are similar. We can go ahead and make or designs and change colors and all that and just be able to work with more. So you see that it goes from a to the word and that's remains the same. Okay, so next thing that we like to do is see what kind of design we're going to do. So we're going to go ahead on our next video, choose a color palette. And I'm going to show you how to choose a column pellet palette from actual photo, Something that you saw in mind and you want to use those colors. 3. Reference and color palette picker: Welcome back. Let's go ahead and go to our next lesson, which is to choose a color palette from a reference photo. So on the previous version of procreate you, if you saw something align like a nice picture, you would have to download it, save it to your camera, put it as one of the layers here, and then do a color pick with your finger. You individually, for each color on that picture, or as many colors are in the picture that you possibly can. Now we have a little very useful tool that is the color reference or the color palette picker. I would say I don't know what they call ever. I went to an splash which is as and I saved this picture to my camera on. So you still have to save a picture to a camera all because it'll give you an option to where you want a color palette to come from. So I saved this one, which is a very colourful sunset. And you're here on your lettering piece and you're gonna go to UPS. Let's go to palettes. And you're going to press on the plus sign because you're going to open. You're gonna see here from camera, from file, from photos create new palette will give you a blank one. So you don't want a blank one because you already know the colours that you won you want from a picture that you save on your camera roll. So we're gonna go knew from photos. Now it's going to take it to your camera roll. And now here's the part that I love. You don't have to brain 80 of these photos into your layers or your program to procreate. All you do is tap. And here's your new color palette. And it's go into the default. So when you go to your desk, it's already going to be there. I had another palette exactly from this, which is these two actually, because I love that feature so much. So it's already saved every color from that picture. I believe who will be every color, it's on this palette right here, so that is awesome. And then you can go ahead and start working on your piece. Now. Let's go ahead and I'm going to make a couple of copies of this and I'm going to use him right now. So I'm gonna do alpha lock. And I'm going to choose this color and go ahead and fill layer and maybe go super easy. Now let's say you want to add some details to the, to the, to the letters array. So I'm gonna choose another 6B pencil, but I'm gonna go into the calligraphy and I'm going to choose a monoline. And let's say you want to add some very tiny, tiny, tiny details and you don't even know if he's going to show it once you kind of zoom out. So what you can do is use a reference photo. So you're going to turn reference and it's going to bring, and guess what? It doesn't have to be on a campus like before you had to go and switch layers all the time and look at the photo. So as you work in here, let's choose a lighter color. Let's go for this very light yellow. And you want to add some little flowers. I'm not saying that you would add a flower and you can move this around to anywhere on your screen. I'm going to go and do some something very minor. And this will show you how detail it is and if we can't even see it once you zoom out, if you want to go even smaller, that will also give you an idea how small you can go to the point where you're no longer able to see or if it's no longer relevant. So since my monoline can only go so small, it's always going to show in this reference photo. But if you go into inking, for example, they have very fine little tip. And it comes to the point that you can no longer see. So this is huge and that's why I really like the reference photo. So it's going to work on it. It's going to show the photo of the piece that you're working on. So that's another thing that I really like about this. So on the next video, we're gonna go through some effects. 4. Improved 3D: All right, so let's start with some basic facts. And I just found this out after going through all the new features and sometimes you find little things by accident. I'm so happy I did with this one. So you notice that it's a different color. I think you can see them and from colleagues have very dark maroon. But that's okay. I'm going to show you how to change the color of the word without dropping the color like we used to do before, again, is just a very little tiny shortcut. Can save you a second or two, but it's just nice to have and I'm glad they did that. So let's say U1, this dream to be this darker, paint gets like a cherry color. Let's put something lighter so you can see it. So it's a little lighter. I don't know if you can see here like a pink and you go into the layer of the dream. I alpha locked it already because I just want this color too change. But I'm going to turn off via malloc. And before you would do this, ray will change a letter, one letter at a time. And here you just click on select. It's right here. So you click on the word, this menu is going to show up and you click on Select. And it's going to change the color that it's on that you have chosen before from whatever palette you're in. So you can go to your desk or you can go to like the choice of pallet doesn't matter. So whatever color is in a dot over here, when you click on Select, that's what's going to change too. So I'll show you it again. Let's go for a blue, something completely different. Click on the word and you just click Select. Before from what I remember, you had to click select and then choose a color or select and field layer. It will still do just the word, Even if you didn't often walk you but you had to do an extra step. This one, you don't have to, you just click on Select and is going to choose the layer automatically. Now, the one than their meat that is yellow because I was just playing around before. So let's go ahead and change to something bright you, let's go for a bright yellow from that color palette that I showed you how to from that sunset. So I'm gonna go ahead and turn off alpha log for this one and I'm going to select and is going to, you can see it because the blue one is at the top of a. If I turn it off for turn off the layer, you can see the yellow, so I'm going to turn it back on. So if you watch my previous I'd bet lettering that I was my head 12 special effects. And I wanted to do the 3D effect and it was a little bit painful because there was a longer process. It's still worked really well, but it was a longer process where you have to duplicate the layer several times. After you do the motion blur, you go into your adjustments like the little magical little one. You go into the motion blur and then you do the percentage and you will get a blurry. And then in order to fill that blur to a solid color, we had to duplicate that layer like ten times. Otherwise it would be like not opaque. It will be translated into mu, could see through it wasn't a solid color. Now this time, you still have to do a couple of steps, but ages, it's a lot less. So I'm going to show you what, what I mean. In fact, I'm gonna change this to black because the you can see better. Yellow is really light. So I'm gonna go ahead and select. I changed to black select. And at the bottom here under the blue is black. So I turned off the awful OK, because you can do a motion or Gaussian blur if you have the alpha Locke turned on, so I'm gonna go motion blur. You can see that the order of things is a little different, but they're all there and we're gonna go over the new ones right here. So you choose motion blur and you're going to see later in pencil and i'm going to show the pencil technique later on. But right now let's go for the layer because I want the whole word to go into the motion blur. So slideshow address. And I'm gonna go down board, so from left to right, but down. Just a little bit, that's it. And this is what we had to do before. We had to duplicate this layer several times on a, if you remember that, if you watch the class, that's where we needed to do. This time. This is already in black. Select, go in there, select, going there, select, select, select in. I think you can see that is pretty solid, but we can do a couple more times. So I think I did what, six times? I didn't count. But it's pretty solid. I'll do one more time just for fun. Now is very solid. Black. No more brushing, No More multiplying, you know, duplicate layers 12 times, you just click on select. It's almost like a duplicating the layer, but you just click one button, you don't have to be sliding any day and then merging. So this is definitely better. And then you just go ahead, you select that layer and we're going to move down. And that's your 3D. How awesome is this? Very aligned? So let's go ahead and fix that. Perfect. And then you have in the next video we're going to add some color, so we'll get a little bit happier. Color, happy here on our next lesson, let's get started. 5. Gradient map: Now we're gonna go ahead over the gradient features, one of my favorite features. So we are going to explore the different colors that you can get. So I'm going to see here is this shield, the old yellow that I was using, and we're gonna change that to black and white. And let's go ahead and change the first layer into y. And that's not quite white. So let's go and adjust that. That's perfect selection. There you go. And I'm going to save a copy of the top and the bottom and just in case so I don't like it or make a mistake. Io is duplicate those layers until I'm sure what I wanna do. So I hide those layers. Merge. And I'm going to keep this design and black and white for you to see how it works. But I do have another one in color that I'm gonna do on the next lesson. So let's go ahead and add some elements. They're all going to be on the same layer. So I'm going to keep black and white and gray. So I'm just going to add some dots around the screen just for you to see what this a factual do two-way and it's going to be different shades of grey as well. So right now I have a medium grey. And then let's go ahead and add some black. As you can see, I'm not really trying really hard to make this super consists not consistent but like a perfect dots. So now I just switched to a lighter gray, smaller dots. I just wanted to show you what this effect will do to a black and white or grayscale design and even lighter gray. And they're all going to be on the same layer, everything. And then I turned off the alphas block just to make sure and you can do this in color. Like if you get tired of the caller wants to try something different, you can always use the Gradient Map for that. I'd like to start with a black and white just for fun. And now you click on that layer and you see it's going to give you the first option on the menu for what you can do. This one is the moca, but you can go and try all the other ones. So this is very cool because it gives you at the same time a wide range of tones like shades of color, but it's a limited color palette at the same time. So you're not going to have 121315 different colors in here. You can see there's like four or five. But you can also control the shade or the tongue of those colors on that spectrum right at that bar. So you open the Gradient Map and you choose what other, whatever Palo Day you want. And you can control how much yellow, how much Pink, How much purple you want to have. The darker colors are going to the UC, those apply to the black part of the the lettering. So if you have a black part of the lettering, you choose one of the gradients. If there is a dark room or a navy blue or dark purple, those are going to be the ones. Add it to the black. And if you want to try different ones, you can always save what you have and then keep applying the gradient to the other ones. And then like it, I'd say you just want a variety if you want to copy this way and then you save this one and you gonna go and try the other ones. And you can slide here and choose the vast one day like a menu. So if you just slide, you're going to see, it's going to give you like a preview of what's going to like, what's going to look like. And then once you choose the one you want, you can slide the bar with the color. So if you want more pink, you slide to one side or the other, as you can see here. So it's going to turn either darker, brighter, or lighter. And you're going to have a lot of options and a lot of fun with this one. So what I'm gonna do, I'm just going to save a couple of options. I also speeding up the video so you don't have to watch in regular speed and take longer. So I'm just going to save a couple of different options of the gradient map into this one. Just for myself, just for fun, and decide which one I like the best so I can use it in a future design. Obviously, I wouldn't call this a finished design because it's just has a bunch of like marks on canvas, but I just wanted to experiment with the colors first and then I can apply to something that is already semi-finished. So on the next video, we're gonna go ahead and try the next technique. So let's just get started. 6. Bonus: Make your own gradient map!: Okay, so this is a bonus video that I wanted to add to this lesson is about the, still about the Gradient Map. I wanted to show you how to make your own gradient map so you don't have just use the ones that it comes on the default menu, the color they already have. You can make your own and add as many colors as you would like. You can also add in the Gradient Map that comes with it. But if you don't want to mess with it, you just want to make your own. You can absolutely Dad as well. So I just open one of the designs that I had Ray here because I think you have to have something on the screen so I just open anything you can type anything is best if you have color just so you can have a better idea how it would work. So and I'm in the layer that I wanted to work on. And I go unto the magic wand and I go Gradient Map layer. And then you see here are all the options. I just made this one and I just named it eighties vibe just because I like the colors and you can just like in my previous, one of the previous lessons I showed you how to just make the colors, edit the colors up and down or left to right, I would say. And so done. And to make your own library gradient, to add it to the library, you just click on a plus sign and you're going to see is going to be black and white. And you choose which color you want at this end. So let's go for some orange and then you can choose what the orange is gonna go into. So if you want something that is green, this is what is going to be from orange to green. Or if you want something that this is the similar to the Venice one cell. If you want another one, just like that, you absolutely can't. You can do whatever you want. I didn't choose these colleges because it came already on one of the default. So this one is really cool because it has the pretty neon, like hot pink with the orange one actually one brighter orange. And I think I want to stay with that. Now. This is also cool because you can add as many points in the middle and change the color. So let's say red in the middle, we want some blue. You can do that as well. You can do whatever you want. Then you can even add some bright blue in the middle. Oh, I think I'm going to stick with that actually. And you can also delete it. So to delete the point, whatever you have in the middle. So here you add it. So I'm going to add the blue right here, bright blue. And let's say you decided that you don't want it. You just press it and slide it to up from bottom to the top. So very, very little. That least that's how it's coming up with my pencil. So just press it and just up. Yep. You do a little press press a little harder than usual and up. So I'm not going to delete this one because actually like this color and it's awesome. There. Notice now you want to naming, right? You don't want to just leave a gradient, so you just click on that. And you just name whatever you want. So Let's say you multi color. It's not the greatest name and oral DBA. I'm just gonna run with it because I don't have anything else in mind. And then once you're done, click on them and it's on the gradient library with all the other colors to moca. That's one of my favorites. So now you know how to add your own gradient and you can add as many or as little colors as you would like. So I can see, I can't wait to see what colors you actually your own gradient. All right, onto the next video. 7. Bloom tool: Okay, on to the next fact, to the new tools and features of the procreate 5X, I changed the top color to pink just to do something to your friend. And we're going to work on a glow feature, which is not called glow, I'd just like to call a glow is called Bloom Actually. So I don't know if it's because they make the color bloom, but I'll show you what that means exactly. So I'm going to alpha lock the 3D part of this letter and I'm just going to put a lot of different colors so you can see how the effect works. So I'm going to choose some bray OR highly saturated colors while I'm going to start with some MIT Tom's first and see how that works. So I turned off the top layer just so you can see the bottom. And I chose the hard airbrushed and airbrushing folder. And I'm going to just makes a bunch of colors. There's no rhyme or reason. I'm just choosing a bunch of different colors. I don't want to use that pink because that's the top color for the word dream. So some blue, pink. Ph. Let's go with some good yellow. Bright yellow is not the brightest yellow, it's a good yellow and some darker blue. I don't know how well that one will work, but we'll try just to try something different. And like a turquoise, this one is probably going to pop a lot. Let's finish with maybe some orange. Okay, so we're gonna go to the magic one and you can do if you talk, turn on the layer at the top you see the word dream. At the top. I'm going to alpha locking the 3D part and I'm gonna go onto the magic word. I'm just turning off the guide because it just makes it look a lot cleaner. I think it looks a little better. We don't need that guide anymore. So I'm going to turn off off a lock. I said I said I just turned it on, but I actually don't need it. So go to the magic one and you're gonna go to blue. And you're gonna choose Layer. And you're gonna do it just like you do like a motion or a Gaussian Blur, you're going to just adjust it and it will give you a percentage. So if you go little by little, you see changes happening to the point where they're almost bleed into each other or mixing into each other like a mash. So this is a good effect to fuse a lot of, if you do a lot of landscape, if you have like illustration with a son, like a sunset or sunrise, It will give you a good sun glow. That's or anything that has light. It doesn't have to be naturalized or you're drawing it could be something with a lamp and you wanna give that lamp the actual glow. I believe this effect to actually be really cool. And if you adjust it like a lie, you can see that there's some white that goes in to give the actual burst of light. And I think you will work a lot better if we work with a lot more vibrant colors. So let's go ahead and do that. Let's choose some bright yellow, bright orange, bright red, and see what happens. So I'm gonna make a copy of this. And let's choose some like a bright yellow. I'll turn off that layer. I'm going to duplicate this one. And I turned on the alpha luck again. So this is a much brighter yellow and let's go for the orange. And everything is going to be very pigmented. If that's the order she used, but highly saturated. So very bright W is going to work good. And let's try some good green, very bright lemon Green. Okay. So let's try this again. Turned off, I don't know. I'm gonna try to keep it the awful lock and see what happens. So Blum choose Layer, he's slide to the ray. And you're going to see what the effect that it Gibbs start slow. And then you're going to see the effects little by little. And then as you go it's getting brighter and brighter. And you see the yellow kind of mixing into the next color. And that's the burst of light that I was talking about. So it gets to a point that to me is too bright, but that's because I'm working with this lettering piece right now. A might work with something else. So for the purpose, for the sake of just this design, I'm just going to keep it like this and it's just like very bright and I like it. But let's say you want to do something even different. So you can actually apply another technique to this just for fun. So we're gonna go into the gradient and see what the gradient would turn when you already have something in color. So look, I go onto the Gradient Map and this is what it gives you. And it's awesome. I already know what my favorite one is, but I'm going to ask that you go through all the options. But my favorite one is the Mocha. And you're going to see why it just gives me, it was just a really cool combination of colors. So it doesn't work only in grayscale. But I just wanted to start with the black and white for you to see what, how it applied those colors. And I'm going to change the top dream instead of pink. I'm going to choose, I wanted to do a like a dark maroon or a purple, like a plum color, but the a doesn't show very well. So I think this blue works perfectly. It's like a dusky blue, and I love it. This is my favorite so far, but we're not done yet. We have other techniques to go through other effects in. I will see you in the next video. 8. Glitch: Okay, so now we're going to talk about the other new feature that came with the update, which is the glitch. So if you're gonna magic one, you're going to go into glitch. So, but first, I just wanted to let you know, I just kept to the dream and pink, I still have the blue in here. That was the previous one that we just changed to the moca effect after we did the blue, and we're gonna use the Bluetooth as well. But I just wanted to show you the pink and what will happens to it. So Let's say you just have, you know, just drew something or put it out of the text feature. And I just wanted to just add a simple effect. This is more of, it doesn't have so much as an organic feel like if you do an illustration, but more of a techie look. So it's more like an eighties computer kinda look. Remember a long time ago that the TVs like the, didn't play anything past 11 or midnight and was just though those rainbow columns, that's kind of what reminds me of. So it's more of a, an eighties kinda tech, techie kind of effect. So I'll show you what it means. So if you go on a magic wand, you go into the glitch and it gives you a couple of options. And each color will have obviously a different effect as, and it will be the same effect, but a different color range. So if you do the artifact, all you do is just address just like the other ones and you're just little by little. And you can see it's like glitchy. But this is the artifacts. So if you keep going, it's like it's just 9%, it's already changed so much. Not all of them are like that. So if you keep going, it's probably it's all going to just pretty much deconstructed the letter. And it looks really cool. And you don't have to use this by itself. You can use this on a top or the bottom of another layer. And I think it will look really cool if you're working with some kind of animation that it will look really awesome. So I'm just going to slide back and go to the next one, the wave. I'm not sure what this one is much about, but is cool if you go all the way to the end because it gives you an extra, almost like an extra layer. So if you start sliding, you see that it's almost like starts glitchy a little bit. But if you keep going, it distorts the word completely. It's like adds a wave to the word I can benzene. And this is what I was referring to when I was talking about the old-school eighties TV because when we all had to use Antanas got sold, they had to pretty much just adjust them. You can see that the image will go and have those kind of waves like this. So this is what it reminds me of if that's what they're trying to accomplish. Well, they did a great job. So let's go back to 0. Signal. Same thing kind of. It will be kinda similar to the artifact of a bigger blocks. So it's not like little, tiny little squares. And this one will be bigger sections of the word. And if you look really closely, you see those columns I was talking about. So this is why it reminds me of old-school television. And if you keep going and you were completely deconstruct a word. And then the last one will be the diverge. And this one has also like if you go through this and it has an amount or how much you will kind of like a fax the piece. It's a 100%, that's what it was, the default. So just leave it there. Block size. So I guess you can increase the size of what the glitch is going to be, the little sections. So if you leave like down here, this is a 7%, it's very tiny pieces. If you increase it, it won't be bigger pieces. So it depends on what you're going to be working on and what kind of effect today you want to accomplish. So I'm gonna go back to 0. And then the signal. Same thing. This one is the one that gave me the less of an impact as as far as affects goes. But I'm sure it will be good for something. And the divergence a has the Zoom also. So you can make those little tiny blocks kind of become really, really small. This is what it was kinda 20% and you can shift the color part. So this is the blue part and you can move it around. I don't remember where it was, but I'll just go back. And same thing with the grey, which to me looks like a black, but apparently is that gray and the red. So you can move things around. And I just went back to 0. And this was the default, but you can move it around you, if you go back and slide back to the left, your word is just going to go back to the same. So this is the glitch effect. It was really cool. And we're now going to go to our next technique. 9. Halftone and chromatic aberration : Okay, let's go ahead and do our maxed factor, which is the half tone in I loved that one. I love have towns. I made a bunch of brushes which is half tone effect, and I loved them. So Let's go ahead and do a couple of duplicate this layer. And I'm going to turn this went to a different color. So we'll see here. Lets go and select this for yellow. Yeah, let's just keep it like that. Okay. So I'm on the pink and I'm going to go on a magic one. And I'm going to go to half tone. And I'm going to turn into the layer. And you can do either full color screen print or newspaper. And we'll do all of them to let you know what it looks like. So adjust just like the other one. And you're going to see as you adjust, you get the half tone effect. If you do screen print. That's what it looks like. If you ever seen t-shirts. What that effect these to be big and early nineties. And I remember seeing those little dots in their newspaper. That's also really cool. I actually changed this to yellow, so I don't even know if I should have this on yellow. Oh, that's the yellow that was underneath. And if you move that, it'll give a cola factor as well. Now, I got out of that layer, so that one is done. I cannot undo a if I keep it on a glitch and I stopped doing it and I can't go back to 0 and undo it, but not this one. So we can just grab another one. And we'll do it again. Ok. So go back to half tone. Today, say glitch before. I hope not because we're on halftime layer and full-color. Now I'm doing the yellow and the back of the black screen print. Our newspaper. For some reason, newspaper goes in black and white, which I love it even it was those yellow and I love the fact that he gave this as a 3D. So if I don't get out of here, I can go to all this one's even if I'm trying something different and they won't leave this part right here. So I can always go back. Now if I leave here and go to a different layer, then I have to either do it again and just keep pressing back, which I don't like doing very much. So do newspaper. I love this. This is my favorite one, simple and very minimalist. So I love this one. And they're also which one? Wants to go ahead and talk about the chromatic aberrations. And Sir, here, because the half tone is pretty self-explanatory and it's very simple. It's not too much to a, So let's talk about the other one. Salami, turn this one off. Let's see if we can work with the blue. I. Let's see what it does to the blue. So click on the magic one. Choose layer and it gives you the perspective or the displays transition and fall off. So slide. This is also kind of a glitch. In fact, if you know what I mean, because it's kind of like separated and separating the colors that turn like that are in the blue. And moving as if there weren't different layers. So displace. They're going to change that into almost like different layers. So used to be a little purplish blue, like dusty blue. But now it's like a purple, green and a red and needs today cross. They become different colors to it's almost like it's very AT style and I really like it. And it's like one effect or like five different effects in one. So if you change the transparency, you can have more of a subtle effect which I love. And I guess this will be very fitting to the word dream of because it's, it's almost like a dreamy effect. Like kind of you can blur. And that will give the yellow almost like a highlight in the red kind of a background, like a shadow. So this is a very simple effect, but it makes your word pop. And that's why I like this one so very much. Now, we've been doing all these lessons on all the changes that we've been making on a layer on maxed video. I'm going to show you how to do all these techniques, but just partially just using the pencil. You probably already figured how you can do that, but I'm just going to show you the how, how awesome it looks and how different it is and the ability that you have to just partially change your layer and not the whole thing with your pencil. Okay, so I'll see you in the next video. 10. Special effect using pencil: So in this lesson, I'm going to show you how to partially change your layer. So when you add an effect, if you don't want to add to the whole layer, we're just going to add two part of it. And let's go ahead first and add a background to this. So I'm using the same word as the last lesson dream and the same effect that we used on the chromatic aberration. So let's add another layer and I'm going to completely colored that layer underneath. So I'm going to get a very big brush. That's good. A hard bland a brush. And at lattes use my anorexia and it skews a yellow, red, green. And we're going to mix these colors. N is now going to be like this. I just want to add all these colors together. Okay? Let's go to a bright yellow right here. And we don't have a purple. So let's go for like Jen, I'd like how it goes behind the word. So too we do read read, and I feel like we're missing something. Go this feature over here. Okay, so now I'm going to use the old, the good old liquefy tool. And I'm going to, here's the push first. I'm going to really mix those colors n. There's not really anything. No, I'm not following any. And I want to be very busy because I'm going to show you how I'm going to make that word stand out even though everything is so busy. So you can see that it is very, everything is very saturated. Push some of those colors here. And you can do as much or as little as you want, but I just wanted to add something. There's a lot of color going on here, okay, so I'm in this layer, so I'm going to keep it here. So let's say I want to do something. So the word kind of stand out a little bit, so it's a lot of color. So obviously there's only so much it's going to do, but let's say I want to add some blur behind it so I'm going to choose the Gaussian blurred. So instead of layer, I'm going to go pencil. And I'm in a hard blend and I'm just blurring behind the word with a pencil. So you can slide. Oh, we can do with your left hand. If you deal with your left hand, you can see that it was 60 before 61. And you can control it with your left hand. How much blur you want to add. So right now it's 37. So you see that it's a lot less blur. Any few want to add like a lot. That's a lot more blur actually. Like the 66 I think was 61. There you go. And this is perfect. So it's still busy. There's still a logo on on. But that blurred definitely made that word stand out a little more as if as opposed to you didn't have anything in there. So let's say you want something really, really colorful or there's just something, a logo and on, and if you work in on a little illustration and just part of the design, it's supposed to be far away or blurry. You can do that with a pen. If you don't want to do in different layers or if he had already merged and you forgot and you don't want to press the back button, you can just blurred that with your vessel. So this is a very cool little feature that you can use. And it definitely helped with my designs to make my lettering stand out a little bit. And you can also do that with then the lettering. If you have multiple layers. And the layers within the lettering, you want a little blur and there you can do that as well, just with the pencil. Let's say I'll turn this off and I have this and see if I have the one with the color. Yes. So less churn to black off. And I'm going to move this one behind this one. And this one. That is a lot going on. Okay, let's turn this one off and bring the black. It's a little small, so let me change the size. Okay. So let's say you just want to blur this lettering. So let's see how this will look if I do the awful lot because I just won. I don't think that's going to work because blur doesn't work on awful. Ok, so I'm just going to turn it off. If you do the Gaussian blur pencil, I have that same 60% with the my hard brush. Let's go ahead and read, reduce the size and like that. Unfortunately it doesn't snap. Like if you're drawing a line, but that's okay. Maybe they'll have that in annex updates. So this will just add a partial. And if you want to do the bottom o itself, alloc and Gaussian pencil. There you go. That is really cool. Also, the Gaussian blur is a good tool if you want to just blender layers together. Just with the blur, you can do that as well. You know, if you can see it right here and that you might be able to do on alpha locks. So let's see. I have to go back. Gaussian blur, pencil. Now you go. If you want to merge or layers, but not really do a little blur. How awesome is that? And you are adding a gradient as well. That blur also adds a gradient, but remember you can also just do a Gaussian blur on the whole layer. If you want to do the whole thing, you don't want me to use the pencil. You can always use. If you're gonna do the whole layer, might as well just do the whole layer. But if you just wanna do little parts, you have the option to use the pestle. And that's it. These are the main effects that I've found on the new update for procreate 5X. I hope you enjoyed it. And we have a class project coming up next. 11. Class project: For class projects, you want to write something and use one of the new special facts, the new tools from procreate 5X. And I would love to see what you create. Please, please post it on the projects. And I want to see how creative we can all get. And you feel like the class, you few enjoyed it. If you learn a lot, please leave it a good reviews so other people can find it as well. Procreate is pretty new. Well procreate 5X is pretty new. So there's still a lot to learn and I hope you enjoy it. I'll see you next time. Thanks.
