About This Class


Adding texture to your images is a great way to give them interest and depth, and it can make your art really stand out, or make an image full of different parts more cohesive.  Textures can be bold and eyecatching, or subtle.

In this class we will be finding and making all sorts of interesting textures, and looking at a number of different ways of using them in Procreate.

I'll also show you a quick and simple way of making any texture seamless on the iPad.

You'll end up with plenty of new textures, brushes and techniques add dimension to your pictures and take them to the next level.

If you're new to Procreate, you might find it helpful to take my beginner class first: iPad Art: Create a Monster in Procreate.

Don’t forget to follow me to be kept up to date with my new classes.

For this class you'll need an iPad, and the following apps:
