1. Course Intro What to Expect 1: Hi, everyone. My name is Matt Vargas and welcome to my course. Streamline your drawing, workflow and procreate in this class, I'm going to be teaching you the very basic functions of procreate that you can customize to streamline your workflow. I'll show you how I use them for myself and how you can apply them to pretty much any drawing or painting in the future. Now, this class is going to be perfect for someone who is new to procreate or someone who is kind of a beginner, maybe intermediate with procreate and hasn't yet customized off the great features that they had. Now, where you're gonna need for this course is an iPad pro the pro create app in apple pencil or another type of stylists. The project for this course is really simple. You're just gonna take screenshots of the customization you've made to the gesture controls in the quick menu. This way we can get new ideas of what works best for procreating. I am so excited that you have chosen to take my class and I really hope that you do the project and leave it down below. Feel free to ask me any questions that you might have. And I'll be happy to get back to you again. Welcome to my course. I'm so happy to have you. 2. Lesson 1 Creating a Custom Canvas: all right, So when you open a procreate, you're gonna see your gallery. You can see that you can drag and drop some of your pieces to make what's called a stack. You can click on the stack and see both pieces of working there. You can swipe. It's the left if you want to share, duplicate and delete on the top, right, you see it says Select import photo and the plus sign to create a new canvas. Go ahead and hit select. It allows you to hit multiple pieces of artwork. You can create a stack. You can share them, duplicate or delete them as you see in the top. Right when you close that out and I'm going to hit the plus sign to creating the canvas. You see, I've created a lot of canvases based on things I've seen online. I'm gonna hit, create custom size, and I'm going to look on the left hand side. We have millimeters centimeters, inches and pixels, and I'm going to set it two inches and I'm gonna do 11 by 17 which is the typical size of comic board D. P. I is dots per inch, the higher you have the dots per inch. Um, also, like based on how larger canvas sizes will determine how many layers you can have on this particular canvas. I like to have 300 as a minimum. The higher your dots per inch is the CRISPR your lines will be since we're working with pixels and I mean a clicker, it says, Entitled and changed this to comic board. Done. There you go. And now we've created a new canvas. 3. Lesson 2 Brush, Smudge, Erase: Okay, so once are canvasses up and ready on procreate, you can see on the top you have a menu bar, and right now we're gonna focus on the paint brush tool, a smudge tool, and that you raise your tool so they're pretty self explanatory. The brush tool allows me to draw this much tour next to it allows me to smart whatever it is I have drawn. And the eraser Chul, of course, allows me to erase. Now something pretty great about procreate is that it has a ton of brushes. A lot of brushes already come with procreate, and there are a ton available online for you to download. If you tap a brush, you can see a ton of different. Um, customization is that you can make for that brush, which are really, really, really cool. And those brushes are available for each one of these tools. So if I tap smudge after it's been selected, you can see all of my brushes air here. And if I tap that you raise here again, you can see all the way brushes air here as well. Now, something pretty cool about these three tours is that if I'm painting, and I really like the way that this hard brushes I can tap either this much tool or that he raised to and hold it and it will switch to my current brush. So now I'll be smudging with that same hard brush. I can do it again for the eraser, and now I'll be racing with that same brush. Pretty cool. I almost forgot to mention the modify button is right here. This is the modified, but in this is the brush size and this is the brush opacity. Then we have undo and redo down here. So if I change this slider, see, my brush size gets bigger. Smaller. If I change this lighter brush becomes eso peak or moral peak. I really want to emphasize the modify button, which we're not using it just yet, But I want you to keep that button in mind because it's really going to come in handy, lead it 4. Lesson 3 Layers: Okay, Now let's talk about layers to open up the layers. Money you click on these two squares that are right next to the eraser. When I tap, then you see the layers menu open up. If I tapped the layer itself, you see, I get another menu on the left. This money has really useful options in it, some of which are really easy to understand and some are a little bit more complicated. So we have renamed select copy. Fill the layer, clear the layer al flocking mask, which touch on later inverts, going to invert the colors that you have in that layer with their opposite. So you see, I have this blue. If I inverted, it turns into something on the other end of the color wheel. Not exactly sure what that color is, because definitely not blue. You have reference, which also touch on later emerged down, which merges that layers together and combined down, which would turn those leaders into a group. Now, if I slide the layer to the left, it's gonna open some more options. I can lock the layer that way. I can't do anything in that layer. If I try it will open up this menu or this prompt that tells you that the layer is locked. I can swept through the left again to unlock the layer swipe to duplicate it in spite to delete. If I swipe my layers right, I can select those layers. As you see, they turn blue and I can create another group. So I actually created a group in a group. She can select as many layers as you want by swiping them to the right, hitting these lines up on the right hand corner, and it's gonna group those layers together. Now, of course, I'm sure, as you would have imagined, turning off the check marks are going to hide Whatever is in that layer, make it visible again. Just click the check mark again. And if I tap this letter in, this is going to open up opacity and blending options. Which are you Here. So you can see, as I drag it down becomes less opaque and they drag it up becomes more opaque. And then there are blending options down here for the layer that you can see. I'm not really going to go over them because they don't really tie into what I'm teaching today. They're not really relevant, but I do recommend exploring them when you have some time later. 5. Lesson 4 Layers 2 Reference, Alpha Lock, Masks: Okay, let's jump back into that layers menu we're gonna talk about in this video. Alfa Lock, Mask and Reference. Now I'm just going to draw some quick shapes on the canvas. Okay, now let's go over reference if I hit, reference and treat a new layer while I'm working in this new layer. If I do any color feel options, it's going to use the layer that I selected as a reference just as that as a reference. And so you can see it did not fill. I'll turn this other layer off. It did not fill through the boundaries of the shapes in the reference layer, and the opposite is also true. If it's still set as a reference, I can dry color into the shapes and they won't they will not go. That color will not go out of the boundaries of those shapes on the reference layer, which is really, really, really cool. Another option I can do is hit outfit. Look now Alfa Log Onley, allow me she ad color where there's already color on the canvas. So if I try drawing boobs after lock the wrong leader, if I tried drawing over here, you see that I can't. It's only gonna draw or put color where there's already color, as in this green right here. So this is really cool to do some edits to your work. If you want to change the color of some Leinart or color that you've used to fill in a shape or something, Alfa Lock will do that nice. Or keep that nice and clean for you in the last more complicated option. His mask. If I hit mask, it creates a new layer that is connected to the original layer. And this is really cool again for nondestructive editing, which means that if I change my mind on something that I edit using a mask, I can always go back toe. However, it was before later as it posted erasing. If I you raise something and then later down the road, I decided, you know what? I really liked it the other way. I can't get it back in the way that you do this with The mask is by painting over in black . When you pay in black, it's going to block out whatever it was that you painted, but it's not gonna erase it. It's still going to be there on your original layer. If I turn off the mask, you can see that area comes back. When I turned the mass back on it blocks that area. So again you blocked by painting in black. So let's say I had a character that had a really cool cape and I wanted to see what he looked like. Without the cape. I can mask that keep I don't need to see it. And if I want to see it again, you just select white. He paid over that mask and white and it will come back. Whatever it was painted will return. And now you can actually see that this color is a little bit different than the original color because I didn't select true white, which I will now Now the full color comes back. So when I selected was really on the gray scale. So really, what you can do in masks is paint with black, white or grave, and it will change According to however dark it waas, it would change your mask just pretty useful 6. Lesson 5 Color: Okay, now let's talk about color. If I go ahead and click Colin many which is right next to layers, we're going to see some options on the bottom risk. Classic value on pallets are in disc. You see this color wheel on the inside? I'm sorry. On the outside has all the different hues you can choose from and on. The inside has brightness and saturation. A really cool trick about this disc option is that in the inside you can pinch and zoom to get a more detailed selection UNP inch to get rid of that. And you can also double tap in certain areas. And it's gonna give you like a recommended option for you, which is pretty cool in classic has the sliders for hue, saturation and brightness values pretty cool. It also has the sliders. It has RGB sliders and a hex, a decimal number option. So if you know a specific color that you want, you can look up that number online and you can type it in here. So if you want a specific gold or let's say a specific turquoise and you found out the Hexi decimal number, you just put that in here, and it's gonna give you the exact color that you're looking for. And, of course, in all of these options, just by tapping the palate down here will save the color that you were on. And then, if you press and hold this color option, you can delete it. Now. If I click on pallets, have a few more options. Procreate does come with a lot of pallets, and there are also pallets available for you to Donald Online. There's some co pick ones, some D C ones, gray scale, things like that. You can set a palette as your default that you always come back to it. You can slide the parents of the left to share it or to delete it, So this is a very great way to have your colors organized. Now, when it comes to using colors, let's just pick this when I guess I have some shapes here. If I have a color selected and I want to fill finally with that color, I can just drag and drop and let it go, and it will fill that later. Now you see that some of these items filled and some did not So you need to be really careful about areas like this where you see it's not totally closed right here. It's not closed. Okay, right here. It wasn't closed, so you want to make sure, but before you fill, you have all your area is closed. Unless, of course, that was what you wanted. And now you can see that it left those areas out. Something else you can dio is if I were to drag this over. You see, on the top there's that blue line and it says color drop threshold and a percentage, if I drag it to the right, the blue line goes more to the right. And if I drag it to the left, the blue line goes away, so it increases to the right and decreases to the left. The higher that threshold percentages, the more you're going to fill. And the less it is, the less you're going to fill. Now, you do want to be careful about using a low threshold when it comes to filling certain objects because so you can see what I'm talking about. If you look right here, you can see this pixel did not get filled. So you can fix that right? Getting your threshold a little bit higher. You see his eyes human got that pixel. So mess around with your threshold. If you're trying to feel areas and it's not doing what you want, chances are you need to adjust the threshold. And another really cool thing you can do when it comes to color is if you're working with multiple colors and you switch to another color, you can press and hold the color menu, and it will switch back to your previous color. You can see him switching back and forth between this purplish magenta and blue is pretty cool, and that's colors. 7. Lesson 6 Settings, Drawing Guide: Okay, now that we have explored all of our menu options on the right hand side, we're gonna head over to the left hand side and we're going to start with settings, Which is this little wrench right here? No, there are lots and lots of different options here in settings, but I'm only going to talk to you about a few. The 1st 1 I'm going to get out of the way is very popular under video, which is time lapse. Replay can go ahead and hit time, that time lapse replay, and it's going to show you everything that you've already done. You can export that time lapse video, and you can choose a 32nd video clip you know, for social media purposes or your full land clip, which is pretty cool. But we're gonna look at is under canvas, and in canvas we have what's called a drawing guide. We're going to select drawing guide, and then we're gonna hit edit drawing guide, and it's gonna bring us to this great drawing guide menu. And on the top, you can see it says two d grid isometric perspective or symmetry. Now symmetry is a great tool If you want to create something, obviously that is symmetric. It has its own menu down at the bottom, not really gonna get into perspective or symmetry, because that's not really tie into what we're going over in this video. But for perspective, you just tap and you can create vanishing points, which is pretty cool. Two D Grid is really what I want to go over now. You can see on the bottom there sliders for thickness, which you can see those lines becoming thicker or thin and opacity so more or less opaque. Now, what I really like is that you can change the script size. If you click the number of grid size, it pulls up this money. So millimeters centimeters interested pixels. I like to hit in twos now. I could change it to one and done so. It's one inch squares, which I think is pretty cool, because we know that this canvas is 11 by 17. And so the one inch squares kind of let you know I give you a better idea of what you're drawing or how big it is since you know that these squares air one inch Now, the center note here allows me to move the great around. I kind of like to line it up where at least one side has, you know, flat square. The whole thing will really. And then this green one here allows you to rotate it. So if I spin this, it rotates the grid. It is pretty cool. The other option is he don't. Here is this slider for assisted drawing. So I'm going to turn it on for a second and hit done in the upper right corner. And you see now when I draw my lines cling to the way that the grid is. And this works in perspective mode as well. So I'm only drawing straight up and down lines. I cannot break this, which is pretty cool. And then you can turn it off by going back in there and it drawing guide and turn that off . And now you can see I'm free to jaw. However, I want 8. Lesson 7 Selection and Transform: Okay, now we have next to settings. We have adjustments, selection and transform, so we're not really going to look into adjustments as it doesn't really pertain to what we have in this video. However, I do want to look at the liquefy tool, which allows you to push your drawing so you can make a little modifications if you want to . You you wanted to just tweak something just a little bit. There are other options down here in the bottom as you see, reconstruct, twirl, pinch, etcetera. But I want to focus on push. You can also manipulate the size in the pressure off this tour. Now moving on, we have selection, which is kind of self explanatory. You make a selection of something on here canvas. You can add to that selection. If you want by default, it's going to add whatever else you select. And it's cool because you can draw and you can lift up your parents and make straight line selections or go back to drawing Freehand. You can also remove from the selections before I close out that circle. I'm going to remove it. We move, which is pretty cool. I can do all of this loop back around and remove all of that. There was just too much. You can also invert your selection, so it's going to select everything else that you did not select, which is pretty nifty when you have a lot of things that you want to select and only small things that you don't want to select. Now, if I make this election again, I can hit duplicate contents and you see I have a new layer has the exact same thing. Pretty cool. Then I can also clear this election to get rid of it. Another great way to some make selections is with automatic selection to just happen. It's going to stop wherever there is a wall of color. It will stop that selection, which you saw it did inside the mouth and the head of this money face. Next, we have the transform tool looks. If you hit the transform tool, it's automatically going to select whatever is in that layer. What does it have to be That way? I can. For someone automatic, I can make a freakin selection of this mouth and then hit the Transform tour. Now it's only gonna do that. And of course I can change it by dragging any of these notes. Here I drag a center one. It would just go up and down. I drive one of the side. It'll go left and right. And if I drive the corner, I could do both. And then, of course, on the bottom here can hit Magnetics, and that's gonna maintain its scale. There are also really cool options down here. Flip horizontal flip, vertical, rotate and fit to canvas, which will make it basically as big as it can be in this canvas. And then, of course, I can reset it. This story and warp are pretty cool. You could grab a corner and distort it and then warp it. But those again really aren't really relevant to the sectorial, so you will have to play with those on your own. Another great thing in selection is that when they make a selection, if I then do whatever it is I need to do, and then I let it go if I hold selection but in it will give me that same previous selection, which is pretty cool. And also you should know that while in selection if you paint color whatever. Even if he erased, it's only gonna do or affect what's in that selection, which is pretty cool. Can you raise all of this? And same thing goes with dropping in color. So selection is a pretty powerful tool. It's one of my favorite ones. 9. Lesson 8 Customizing Procreate Gestures and Quick Menu: Okay, Now that we've pretty much gone over all the tools that you're going to be using, we're going to get into customizing procreate. So let's go hit settings in preferences and all the way down here in the bottom, we're gonna hit gesture controls. And here is really the power of procreate where you're going to see how you can customize this to almost remove yourself from the interface and just focus on your art. So on the top, PCB have smudge and you can go ahead and you can set years to what? Minor? I recommend doing that to follow along in this class because you're going to see how convenient and how easy they work. And you can contain him if you want. Of course, feel free to. But I'm gonna show you how I've set mine because I feel like he's worked best so smart. I have set to the modify button, remember I mentioned earlier I told you guys not to forget. So when I hold the modify button in touch with my finger, it's gonna activate smudge. Actually, we're going to go through each one of these and then I'll repeat them to you out of this money. So that's his race. I don't have any race because I like to just click on the tool assisted drawing. I have another way to do that. Eyedropper. I have it set to tap the modify button. Quick menu. I have said to just touch with one finger. Full screen is a forefinger. Tap clear layer is set to scrub Copy and paste is a three finger swipe layer. Select is the modify button with touching me with the apple pencil. Wait, here we go. In general, I have it set to rotate with pinch and zoom. So now let's go over and see what they all do. So smudge if I just draw, have set to looks I have set to holding with modified but in and using my finger It was much which is pretty cool. The eyedropper I have set you. Let's get another color on here in a couple different ones. I have said to just tapping the modify button. You see, I just tapped it with one finger. Yeah, Now the eyedropper comes up and I can pick easily the color that I want to use. You can see it changing in the upper right hand corner. Sorry. Now you can see a change in the upper right hand corner. The quick menu quick menu is so, so, so important. I have it set tucked touch. So now this menu is going to come up whenever I touch the screen. And this is so great because these air tools or options, I should say that I have so easily I can access that. Typically you couldn't so you can press and hold one. And you can see all the different things that you can customize are all the different actions you can set for the quick menu. You can even set it to a specific brush, which is what I did. So whenever I tapped the quick menu and I hit the hard brush, my brush is gonna change the hard brush so I can show you. I have it right now. Sets of this soft airbrush If I tapped a quick menu hit hard brush, its riches, the other options I have, like I said, typically wouldn't be able to be done so easily. But now, with the quick menu, they can. So, while drawing, I can just hit new layer you can see on the top. That prompt came up to do it again, and I'm now I have three layers. What is it for? But you can see that my layers will come up. Copy Canvas. You can see I have said over here is really, really convenient because it's gonna copy no matter what is on all of your layers. You can see whatever is available are not available but viewable When you hit copy canvas, it copies all of that and I can go into a new layer and I can pace that and you can see now this is a great way to do. You can do so much with this now. You can use adjustment layers to affect everything you can kind of just save it. It's a really, really, really handy. I have perspective, visibility. So if I go into settings canvas drawing guide, I edited drawing guide. Here's my perspective, right? So if I if I'm drawing, you can see its own right now. If I want to turn that off, I don't see it. I can hit perspective, visibility And as you just saw, you don't have a tap and then tap again. You can tap once and slide what you want, which when you get really good at it, you can get really fast and just make and you layer pick the heart brush. Trying to perspective. Visibility off you see, copied the canvas. You get really, really fast with it. Then I have flipped horizontally, so it's going to flip my canvas for me, which is a really good habit to get into, because sometimes people without even knowing that they draw more toe one side. So I'm right handed. Sometimes I can draw, like, just kind of slanted, especially depending on how my iPad is or how the canvases, sometimes it can draw slain, too. And when I flipped the visited the canvas, it lets you see it kind of exposes that unevenness. And the last thing I have is drawing assist, which I kind of mentioned earlier really, really easy way to do this instead of having to go all the way into edit drawing guide and turning that on down here down there, I can just slide my finger and turn that on her off. So right now you see it's on here. That's let's get rid of everything so you can see you know better so you can see drawing assists right now is off. Can like free draw Well, when I start my finger now, it's arm and you see it's following all these lines. So I do my horizontal and vertical lines, and I could do my lines that go to the vanishing point. I try to get out. I really can't. So it's really, really convenient if you're going to work a lot with perspective or even just a grade. If you're making you know geometric forms or if you're making three D objects, it's really, really gonna help a lot. I shouldn't have said geometric forms because you can't make circles Onley squares. But either way you know what I mean. This so, so helpful. So that is the quick menu, and like I said, you can. You can change it to whatever you want. You just tap it and you hold and there's so many different things you can see in here that you can use. But I have said it to things that I think are the most convenient because these options are not that easy to access and now you can use them so so fast. So it's great. Another quick gesture after the quick menu is full screen. So if I tap with four fingers, you can see that the whole weapons, your face went away. And now I can just focus on drawing and I don't have to worry about all the whole interface . So what should I do? Activist focus and look on exactly what I'm creating. The way to open the edit menu is by three fingers right down and now you see Cut, Copy, copy. All pieced, cutting piece copying beast. This is really, really, really convenient. So I can do this right now and I can copy all. Then I can do it again and hit paste on. You see, when I go into my layers, it's all right here. So that's really useful as well. Another one which I really, really like this one. It really comes into in handy. You can see I have so many different shapes in so many different things on my screen right now. Well, turn. These are well, if I want to work on something that's in a specific lier, all I have to do to select that layer is hold the modify button intact. You can see it just said layer three I can tap over here later. For over here is layer eight. Well, here's layer one. If you tap on areas that have multiple things right here, Look, I have three there, one layer to layer eight and it gives you a little summary of what they all look like. You just click the one that you want, so that one is so convenient because you don't have your urine. Four screen. You don't have to, so you can't do that in full screen because you have a part of five, but in. But either way you don't have to go all the appear layers and figure out what you want. You can just click on the one you want. I hope appropriate changes that leader because that would be so great to access from full scream. I feel like the more you can pull yourself out of the u I and just focus on your art, the better. And I think that procreate is really trying to focus on that as well. Then, of course, that last option was general so I can zoom in a can rotate and also a quick trick is that you can pinch and it will fill the canvas. Russian. It's his canvas. It'll fill the screen size. So if I have this small, have it over here, I just pinch it was back to full. That's pretty cool as well. So yeah, that is how I have appropriate modified for me. Feel free to modify its two year to your liking however you want, but I really feel like this helps you focus on your art and get things done quickly and really, really streamline your workflow. 10. Lesson 9 Review: all right before we get started on the project, let's just go over a couple of quick tips and tricks so you don't forget if I used the selection tool and I like over my selection, pressing and holding the selection option will give me that previous selection. I can drag and drop from the color menu to fill for color. And don't forget about that threshold. It can be kind of tricky. Also, remember that by holding down the color option, it will switch to your previous color. And if I hold down the smudge, the paint or that you raised tool, it will switch to my current brush. I can pinch the canvas to have it fit. Three fingers down will give me the edit menu, and here's a trick I haven't mentioned yet. If you hold your line, it will create what's called a quick line. This line is perfectly straight. I can make it, however long or short I want, and if I press a finger down onto the screen, it will change that line at 15 degree increments. You can also hit two finger tap on the screen toe undo and three fingers to redo And when you do that with the quick line, you can see it gives you these little notes here, and you can drag them to edit that quick line so it's not as permanent as it might seem. And it's really cool because it's anchored to the end of those nodes. You can move it by selecting the middle node or change the length by selecting the N nodes . Well, that's pretty much it. Let's jump into the project.
