Procreate has launched an updated version with LOTS of improvements!
This is one of two iPad apps that I use for my freehand artwork, this is a painting/drawing app that is not only amazing value for money (NO SPONSORSHIP HERE!) but really good at what it does.
See my video here.
While the interface is clean and friendly, this is a full function art app. Whether you are looking for an app for a child to use or for yourself; for hobby or professional use, Procreate will do so much that far more expensive and complicated desktop software does.
Improvements this time round include a smoothing action for brushes and a range of screen shortcuts that will speed up work/play flow.
In my case, I use it on an iPad Pro 9 inch version, with an Apple Pencil and I absolutely love it. As a more traditional artist normally, I love how the app translates into a digital medium, all the things I normally use on paper.
Brushes in this app are extremely powerful tools. Use the presets and alter them in hundreds of ways, or very easily create your own. Like spray brushes that spray pictures/ clipart? No problem. Lock and load and shower your canvas! Like Calligraphy? Use the new smoothing action on brushes or pens for a hyper dreamy stroke that flows like warm honey.
Cut, copy and paste in either freehand mode or a special auto select mode; apply transformations at the slide of your pen or finger. Change the opacity or size of your strokes quickly and easily.
Use the advanced menu to set shortcuts for desired actions and choose the method of selecting them.
In short, this app is BRILLIANT.
Available from the App Store.
