    Procreate 5 - five new features

    Procreate 5 has been announced and with it comes some cool new features such as brand new cutting edge graphics engine and the new brush studio. I will try to tell you about five of them that I think is pretty cool and that i think will really make this upgrade worth while.

    Procreate 5 is built on a new graphics engine called Valkyrie. This will not only improve performance, but will also allow new features such as importing Photoshop brushes and customizable brush options.

    "the new cutting-edge graphics engine designed to elevate Apple Pencil and iPad Pro to new heights."


    Brush studio is a brush editing tool that will let users combine two brushes to create custom Dual Brushes, and features over 150 different brush settings. Users will be able to manually adjust the Apple Pencil’s pressure and tilt settings, and use the built-in texture generator to create their own brushes. This will give you get hundreds of different brush variables to play with.

    "Seeking the perfect brush to suit your style? Craft your own from the ground up. Using the built-in graphically accelerated texture generator, you'll be able to make the brush you need in seconds."


    Animations, which was introduced back in April is given an upgrade as well. Animation Assist has features like onion skinning, (which shows a faint outline of the previous layer, and instant playback.

    Colors are given some new dynamics options which will allow multiple colors in one brush stroke based on how much tilt and pressure is applied. We will also see support for CMYK, which is great for users working with print, and RGB ICC profiles.

    "Enjoy a level of control unmatched by any other platform. Transform colors on the fly with complete control using Color Dynamics and Apple Pencil's pressure and tilt technology."


    We will also see a new interface where the users will be able to move around the floating Color Picker and the transform and selection modes have been redesigned for better visibility on the canvas. There's also a new Clone Tool so you can  duplicate textures.

    "Working in harmony with the entire suite of Procreate brushes, the new Clone Tool and CMYK support will change the game for concept artists and digital painters. There’s something here for everyone."

      I referenced several photos and screenshots for Alita, but mainly used this one here for the pose and facial expression: http://xiding.at/downloads/Ref.jpg
      I use the reference photo to observe and understand the geometry but for the most part, I do the shading based on my understanding, not strictly sticking to the reference.
      A large proportion of the video is sped up 2x in the editing, in order to save your viewing time. If it's too fast for you, simply play it back at 0.5x speed.
      I used an iPad Pro (2018) and Apple Pencil to create this painting. The app is Procreate.

      Using Free Brushes in Procreate to draw an iris In this video I will be drawing an iris in Procreate using free brushes only, for example; I'll be using a soft airbrush and Acrylic brushes in Procreate. If you have Procreate you can follow along this digital art tutorial. We will be painting an iris step by step.
      I'll be using some of the best free Procreate brushes, the painting brushes that are the default brushes in Procreate. Even though I always prefer my custom Procreate brushes, you CAN make a painting with the standard Procreate brushes. If you tweak the standard brushes a bit, you can make the default Procreate brushes even better.
      Have fun drawing an iris in Procreate!
