The illustrator talks about her experience with Procreate 4
Why choose Procreate over other painting programs?
I was looking for other ways to digitally paint without being tied down to a desktop computer. I fell in love with Procreate because it’s an app that offers everything I need with an artist-friendly interface, and I can take my iPad anywhere, so it’s like drawing in a sketchbook. Coming from a background mostly working in Photoshop, Procreate was an easy transition, and it’s now my first choice for colouring my work.
What makes Procreate unique or different?
One of my favourite features is the time-lapse replay. This enables you to watch a playback of your process so far, and it even gives you the option of exporting a video so you can share the recording with friends. Another feature that’s uniquely noteworthy is the Apple Pencil’s sensitivity; I feel like it’s the most realistic drawing stylus yet.
Would you recommend this product to a beginner?
Yes. Procreate’s interface is clear and clean and not overwhelming, and invites for exploration of the program without a lengthy newuser tutorial up-front.
What’s the one thing you’d change about Procreate?
I still want a CMYK mode or maybe a Gamut warning, because I find myself moving files into another program to make sure the colours are ready for print. Having this option would easily make Procreate a one-stop for all my illustration needs. Other than this, I can’t recommend this product enough.
