Procreate. What’s the fuss about?.
So, I’m always looking for new ways to improve. I like to add a little pizaz into my watercolour logo designs. For months I have been researching and reading reviews in regards to the ipad Pro. I decided to take the plunge and buy it. With an apple pencil of course.
So I am normally a Paint to paper kinda’ girl for watercolour designs and pencil drawings but it’s quite tedious work. Waiting to dry, scanning it in and cutting it out on Photoshop! I thought an ipad might help to quicken the process time. Well we all know what thought does? Well it did good. I am so glad I took the plunge.
So here’s the verdict.
Using the drawing app that’s available on the ipad called Procreate. I managed with ease to navigate around it. (maybe because I’m used to working with layers on Photoshop) I figured what all the settings and different options are about.
After a quick play I decided to create a Sample watercolour image for a logo. ( you can find it to purchase premade here in my shop). I found it a tad different from the real feel of a brush, paint and paper, but it wasn’t a bad experience by far. But I quite enjoyed it actually, NO MESS not one splodge of paint to be seen, bonus.
I decided on a painting some leaf design just to see how it goes and it went particularly well. especially for a first timer.
After I had finished and set about saving my work I saw there was a video playback option, I thought “how exciting” I might make a little video and upload it on my blog. once saved, I uploaded the file into Adobe Illustrator so I could turn this cute little digital painting into a nice Logo design and sell in my shop as a premade logo.
So here we have it my first ever Procreate digital painting and the final piece.
