8. Layout Your Art Before Painting with Traditional Media
You can use Procreate to help you plan what to paint and how to paint it. You can easily combine photos to create unique images. This lets you experiment and explore without using up lots of supplies which can sometimes be a barrier to spontaneity and creativity.
9. Tracing Images
The advanced layer system allows you to create different layers in your artwork. Think of this as having several pieces of tracing paper on top of each other when creating art. Each layer is independent and does not affect other layers. You can change the opacity of any layer so you can trace a layer. I use this to check my work after doing a drawing to make sure I’m on track. This allows me to see my mistakes, then make any adjustments to a drawing before I move to traditional media. This can help you to get the proportions correct when you’re painting animals, people or architectural elements or anything that requires accurate drawing.
10. Print the Procreate Layout and Trace onto Traditional Canvas or Paper
11. Procreate Can Help You During Your Painting Process
Sometimes when I am painting something, I might get stuck in that I am not sure what I need to paint next. You can import a photograph of a painting in progress to Procreate and start playing around with different brushes, colors, and textures.
This allows me to decide exactly what I’m going to paint before I actually paint it. This saves on time, materials and anxiety!
12. Create Color Palettes
13. Test Background Colors Before Painting
14. Layers Give You Flexibility and Creativity
15. Use Procreate Instead of a Sketchbook
16. Let’s You Create a Time-Lapse Video of Your Drawings
As if there weren’t enough reasons to get Procreate, it has another incredible feature that I make use of almost every day. You can create a time-lapse video of any drawing that allows you to see exactly what you did! You can identify mistakes or see the order that you did things during your process.
