Comprehensive is the word that strikes your mind when you see the course outline. Umair Najeeb Khan paid great attention to detail while composing this online Procreate course. The beginner-appealing course outline for the Introduction to Procreate course is discussed below.
You’ll be introduced to the interface of Procreate and the know-how of the application. You’ll learn to set up your first canvas on the illustration application. Your mentor will also brief you on the course's learnings.
To start painting, you need a canvas; the same goes with the illustration. The display where you can find all the necessary tools is called a canvas in Procreate. In addition, the drawing surface is known as the layer. Hence, layers will be discussed in detail with practical applications in place. Beginners who are excited to get their hands on the software will be pumped from the start of this module. Blending modes, masking, alpha masking, & clip masking will be the takeaways of this module. Once you’re familiar with all of the tools discussed, you’ll review the canvas as a whole with your mentor.
Your mentor will elaborate on how you can choose a color while working on Procreate. He will share some of the widely used practices for creating your own color palette. By now, you will recognize most of the necessary tools to get started. After adjusting brushes to your convenience, your mentor will explain to you the entire process of executing a basic artwork on Procreate.
Colors are very important in drawing because they set the tone for each artwork. They indicate the background of any story that is trying to be conveyed. Hence, this module helps you understand the necessary utilization of colors and the color palette.
In this module, you will step up your learning a little bit. The objective here will be the same as in the last module, which will incorporate a few more tools than the last one. The core component of this module, or in layman's terms, your focus in this module will be centered around experiencing the selection tool. Lessons in this module will contain Procreate features like the selection tool, lasso tool, move tool, liquify tool, and color adjustment tools. In the later half of this module, you will add some special tweaks to the drawing. These tweaks will incorporate a few more enhancement techniques like noise, sharpening, glitch, chromatic aberration, etc.
Some of the advanced settings of a canvas in Procreate will be discussed in this module. Lessons here will be about some settings in Procreate that allow an artist to further smooth the process according to his needs. You learn to incorporate perspective, 2D grids, isometry, & symmetry into your drawings with fewer flaws. Meanwhile, drawing assist, which helps artists draw simultaneously on two other positions at the same time, will get a spotlight here.
Some surprises are still inside for the students to explore for themselves. Here, Umair Najeeb Khan shares some of his techniques that he has learned over the past years. These suggestions will enable you to complete your illustrations quickly and comfortably.
