Procreate overview

What is Procreate?

Procreate is a graphic designing software that provides creative professionals with tools to design digital sketches, paintings, and illustrations on a centralized platform. Artists can create new brushes or utilize the built-in library of brushes to customize textures, compression, and effects according to requirements.

With Procreate’s colordrop functionality, designers can fill specific colors on the canvas using the drag-and-drop interface. Professionals can import multiple fonts on the platform, add typographies on artworks, adjust paint filters, and include various effects, such as realistic blur, gradient map, chromatic aberrations, and more. It also lets users modify images, rotate them in ‘freeform’, and distort pictures.

Procreate provides an Animation Assist tool, which enables creative professionals to record each stroke in the form of a time-lapse. The software also helps user change the style of texts, draw shapes, and perform color-corrections on images.

Used monthly for 1-2 years

I struggled initially and gave up frequently, however I found the right tutorials out there to help me along and now I use it to mock up and design logos and graphics to use for my business.

Pros
I love the ability to do a huge variety of graphic design work in a single application. It has what feels like a million different pens to choose from and a ton of different things you can download and add to the app to make it even more functional for whatever you choose. Thankfully there are also a million and one different tutorials out there so you can figure out how to do what you need to do

Cons
There is a learning curve if you've never used this type of software (obviously) and it's easy to get frustrated at first until you figure things out. However, once you learn where everything is and how to use it, it is awesome.

Pros
The animation tools are amazing! Very intuitive and satisfactory to use.

Cons
About command and menus, the learning curve is a bit difficult, at least for me, but the results totally worth.

Must-Have Drawing Software for the iPad

Used occasionally for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I love using Procreate, and recommend it to anyone interested in doing art on the iPad; especially beginners who might be wary of investing in more expensive software. Though I primarily use Clip Studio Paint these days, I still have my copy of Procreate and will occasionally bust it out for simpler drawings.

Pros
One of the best drawing apps available for the iPad, and unbeatable for the price. Has great functionality, and they are constantly adding new features.

Cons
It's not especially intuitive, and does lack some features that more robust drawing programs have. Moving files from your desktop to iPad and back again as you work on them can be a bit tedious.
