Introduction to Procreate for PC

Gone are the days when you would've to go the grocery store to get manual instruments for drawing. Now you can do your drawing easily by downloading the app Procreate on your iPhone.
The idea of using the program may seem quite intimidating. For an artiste who has never had to use an app like this one, it may seem tasking but not at all. It is actually quite easy but you have to get the wing of it first.
And then, you can paint, sketch, draw on the go.
Yes. That easy.

What is Procreate?

Procreate is a sketching, drawing and painting app with which is used by creatives for creating art on their work pads.
Procreate was created and launched in the Apple Appstore by developers Savage Interactive at the intial date of March 16, 2011. However their most stable release happened 44 days ago, on the 20th of December, 2019.
It was created in a remote location which might be the reason the designers were able to come up with the brilliant ideas about how the app works.
Now, an artist doesn't need to carry their bulky laptop around. Their workspace literally follows them around, in the form of their iPads and Apple Pencil.
The aim for creating this app was to remake the idea of drawing physically (like with hand), but on a digital space. This app gives off that "drawing on paper" feel because of its responsiveness especially when using the Apple Pencil.
This app caters to needs of artistes, ranging from beginners to professionals. It is flexible, easily inspires new drawings with all the vibrant colors inputted and most of all, portable.



Features of Procreate

Procreate has a couple of features that makes it stand out among other programs but the most notable include:
1. It has 136 brushes with over 50 customization options.
2. It supports layers and clipping masks.
3. It has some powerful features for finishing and rendering such as perspective and gaussian blur, color balance etc.
4. It has perspective guides and Drawing Help that makes drawing much easier.
5. You can export your drawings to different file formats and share your drawing process by streaming with the app.

Uses and Importance

Procreate can be used to do a whole lot of things. Below are a few:
  • Makes it easy for an artist to organize their artwork in a photo album format. This already exists with Photoshop users.
  • One can import files from other devices and locations.
  • Use hand gestures to zoom in and out of the painting and also undo changes to the work done.
  • Easily perform professional-level composting and adjustment of layers for artists that aren't just beginners. There's something for everyone.
  • Even more importantly for professionals, Procreate offers easy navigation and integration while working on a painting. They can shuffle between other apps as they work.
The functionality and features of Procreate separates it from the other apps which are similar to it. The uses of Procreate are better explained than listed. For example,
A creative used Procreate to reimagine a pet project by creating vintage style baseball cards to record every win by his favorite baseball team.

  • Fill bucket + reference

    By mondepurple (Pcmac user)

    I love this app and it has made digital art so easy for me, and I’m thrilled to see the addition of clipping masks and shape tools! One thing I think is an absolute necessity for the next update, however, is a reworking of how the fill bucket tool functions. Other (free) programs such as medibangpaint that I’ve used have capabilities like expanding fill bucket selection without having to use the select tool, and the fill bucket taking all marks into consideration, regardless of layers, when making its fill. The ‘reference’ setting has proved to be inconvenient at best. Also, having to drag the color swatch from the top right corner is cumbersome. Fill should be its own tool like drawing and erasing. Honestly, I just want to see the fill bucket function like it does in EVERY other art program I’ve used. Another thing to note, many programs have the very useful feature of allowing you to have reference images in a separate window on the screen, so you can see them no matter where you are on the canvas. Would love to see this integrated. And, a final request, please make blending tools stop picking up colors from outside your selected area when you blend. I use the selection tool,,,, so the brush doesn’t interact with things outside the selection,, why do blending brushes pick up things from outside the selection and drag them into your selection,, That said, thank you for making such a fantastic art program accessible at such a low cost!
  • My Favorite! ♥️🎨🖌

    By NoelJG (Pcmac user)

    this app has been, and continues to be, my favorite art program out of anything I’ve used on any platform, whether desktop or mobile. It’s extremely intuitive to use; the UI is comfortable and well thought out, and new features are carefully considered in how they are made and implemented,so while updates may not come very often compared to some apps, new features are rock solid and work excellently right away when they do update. The brushes feel the best to me out of any of the apps I’ve drawn with (and I’ve given a LOT of things a try), and I’ve been able to make and customize several sets to be absolutely ideal for me. Not only is the app fantastic, the people who make it are running their company in a first class manner. Savage Interactive has been quick to reply, friendly, and helpful the mere handful of times I’ve needed any tech support for the app in the years I’ve been using it, as well as any time they interact with their fans online. They provide lots of demos on Instagram, and engage in meaningful discussions with their app’s users about updates and features on their forum. I can’t say enough good about the experience of being a this app user. $10 is nothing for what this app has to offer, and it only continues to get better as it ages. I finished a series of book illustrations this past year in this app! Thanks to the Savage Interactive team for making my go-to tool for digital art.
  • Out of all the art programs I’ve used..

    By Dataverse (Pcmac user)

    I got an iPad Pro to replace my broken Cintiq Companion. While I have found that I love using the iPad Pro more for art, than I did with my cintiq, I thought I would eventually need to invest into an actual desktop PC to use my other programs like Clip Studio Paint (without a subscription fee), and just use Astropad with the iPad instead. But since I’ve tried out and used this app, that need and desire for having an actual PC to do art with other programs, has gone away. Out of all programs I’ve used in the past for art, from expensive ones like Photoshop to free ones like Krita, this app is the most enjoyable and easy to use program I’ve ever come across for making art. Though I will say that it was frustrating at first for me to learn this app, coming from a desktop background in art programs. So certain functions weren’t easily known for me to find and use right away, like I would expect to find and use in a desktop. So this required me to look things up and watch tutorials to learn where these functions are to access and use, like the quick use of flip canvas. But once I learned how things worked, its become my most favorite program to use for art. From rough concepts, to complete illustrations, I'm producing more art than I generally do on a regular basis than I had ever done in the past with other art programs, due to my enjoyment and ease of use with this app.
  • Love it!

    By fletcherae (Pcmac user)

    I’d highly recommend this app for digital artists, recently I’ve started to get into digital painting, and this app is perfect for it! I’ve tried other apps like ibis and medibang, but they aren’t as efficient, and ibis is clearly not meant for it. The transition was easy, and I love being able to utilize the fact that this is an app and not a desktop download. At first I was hesitant because of it costing money, but I love this app, and it is so cheap for how amazing it is. My complaints? I don’t have any about current features, and the things I’m saying aren’t complaints, they’re just things that would be more convenient. This app doesn’t seem like it’s made for comic making, but it would be great if there was some tools for being able to make them. I’m able to, but I have to switch between ibis (has a text tool, I haven’t seen one on here yet) and this app so that I don’t have to be frustrated with my handwriting. It would also be nice to have “stroke outer” and “glow outer” filters, it would be more convenient for my stylized art, and some effects look better with “glow outer” and/or “glow inner” filters applied to them. But these are definitely not necessary features, they would just make things easier and take away the step of taking the file to ibis to apply said filters. Basically, I love this app, and I would recommend it to any digital artists on iOS.
