Marco Cheatham (00:00): Separately, Photoshop and Procreate are powerful tools, but together they become a platform for portable, powerful design creation. I’m going to show you how to seamlessly benefit from both in a smooth workflow.

Marco Cheatham (00:21): My name is Marco Cheatham. I’m a freelance art director and illustrator. I’ve been designing and illustrating for seven years. And one thing that’s made being creative easier and increase. My productivity is using procreate to sketch design and illustrate frames. Today, I’m going to show you just how easy it is to start your process and procreate ways that’s made designing easier and the benefits and ways it can sync with Adobe programs to take full advantage. You’ll need an iPad with the procreate app and apple pencil and Adobe Photoshop. In this video, you’ll learn to utilize some appropriates benefits sketch easily in block in color, bring Photoshop brushes into the procreate app. Save your files as PSDs and add finishing touches in Photoshop. Before we begin, make sure you download the project files in the link below so you can follow along

Marco Cheatham (01:11): Now we’re inside procreate. So this is an illustration I did a little while ago. We’re going to refine it and color, block it in, take it into Photoshop and put any final details on it in there. Let’s get started. So I assume you guys are probably a little bit familiar with the program, so I won’t go too far in depth with this, but essentially you have your brushes here. The brushes that have the little icons on it on the left are the brushes that come standard inside procreate and the brushes that are up farther that have the little like sketch or whatever you want to call it. Brush stroke. Those are the ones that have been installed or created by me. And they all have their own groups, have many brushes within them. When I get started on a project, I like to create a group and add the brushes in there that I’m working on, on the project.

Marco Cheatham (02:09): So with this one, I made a group, I sculled it SLM tutorial. And I added the brushes that I’m going to use on this project. So there’s that? And here’s the brush size right here. So you can control the size of your brush. Here is the past city. So that’s good. All right. So I have this rough sketch here. You know, I like to try to start really loose. I like to break down my illustrations into progressions that way it’s easier to digest and you know, it’s less stressful. And I think that that’s just a good way of doing things. You know, if you try to design everything at once, it just becomes a little bit more stressful in like convoluted. But as, as long as you like are breaking things down into the little sections, as much as you can, the easier it’s going to be on you and your designs.

Marco Cheatham (02:57): Let’s talk a little bit about the brush. So when you’re first inside, procreate, by default with your brushes, your pressure sensitivity is probably going to be pretty low. So if I pick a brush, let’s say that this one’s pretty good. You’re just going to have to press really hard to have your brush show up thicker, right? So if I’m pressing really light, it doesn’t do anything. I have to press pretty hard to have that show up. So to fix that, you just go up to your settings, you go to preferences first, and then you want to go to edit pressure curve. And so you’re going to have this curve. It’s very linear and you want to add a point somewhere probably in the middle, and you’re just gonna use that and make it a curve. I can show you just exaggerate this so you can see it.
