PROCREATE LETTERING PROJECTS
In this online course, you'll learn how to use the powerful features of the Procreate app to create impressive digital artwork on your iPad.
AT A GLANCE...
1. Understand how to navigate the best iPad lettering app, called Procreate
Everything from what all the buttons are and where to find them to importing files and brushes. You'll get a shortcut cheat sheet and three custom brushes that we created specifically for the course, too.
2. Learn how (and why) to use its powerful features
Layers, masks, clipping masks... what do all of these mean? Confusing at first, we'll break down these digital art essentials so you can actually understand them.
3. Create amazing digital lettering projects
We'll walk you through 16 hands-on projects that show advanced features in context. Trust us, the Overlay layer blend mode makes much more sense when you use it in the Reflection project, rather than just talking about it hypothetically ;)
You'll learn the what AND the why of each step of the process.

"This app is so powerful but it has so many features and settings, I feel overwhelmed."
We agree—there's a lot to learn. So we'll start with the basics of navigating and using the app.
In the introductory modules, we'll cover these topics:
These lessons will give you the solid foundation you'll need before moving into the more advanced features of Procreate.
pssst.... all of the GIFs on this page were created using Procreate!
The first three modules give you the groundwork for understanding how to use the app, but mastery comes through applying the features in the context of a real project. You'll learn through 16 step-by-step projects separated into sets of four. Here's an overview of each set:
Going through these project lessons, you won't have to struggle to figure out how to create these effects on your own. Plus, you'll be able to apply these techniques to ANY lettering project you create in the future!

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Charlene
Charlene was one of the very first students to take Procreate Lettering Projects. She worked through the Project Packs following our step-by-step instructions to create the beautiful work below. We love the way that she's added her own unique spin on each of the designs! She definitely has an eye for design. Make sure you check her out on Instagram for more beautiful, inspiring art on Instagram @charleneshobbyart.

Detailed, Step-by-Step Lessons
"The tutorials I've watched have parts where they go very fast and don’t explain steps they THINK everyone already knows."
That bothers us, too. Which is why we specifically include extra details and explanations of every single step of the way, not leaving anything out.
In the projects section, we'll show you how to make the most of all the features.
Each project lesson includes:
If you've ever played around with all the features, you know that there are infinite options, which is overwhelming. But you don't have to master every single one -- we'll show you the best settings for lettering that we use most often in our projects.
You can watch the video lessons as many times as you want, and even slow them down if you're stuck on a certain part. The layer breakdown PDF shows actual screenshots of our project files that you can use as an "Answer Key" to double check your own work.
Extensive Focus on Layers
Are you stumped when it comes to how to use layers? Don't worry, we'll break it all down for you.
Layers are crucial for creating effects like shadows and shading, blends, backgrounds and foregrounds, and most importantly a non-destructive workflow.
You'll learn all the best tips and shortcuts for duplicating, adjusting and grouping layers, using blend modes, plus the exact settings we use (and why).
We'll analyze the details of actual pieces of artwork in several projects to learn how to introduce realism.
We'll study the features that are characteristic of these effects, and then teach you how to re-create them digitally through use of clipping masks, layers, smudging, and blend modes.
One of these watercolor pieces was created 100% digitally!
So what's included in the course?
Included in your course are some awesome bonus lessons and resources that will help set you up for success.
The bonus pack includes:
1. Traceable Lettering Guides You'll get a digital file to practice your lowercase and uppercase lettering directly in Procreate. These files were created specifically for use with the 3 Custom Loveleigh Loops Procreate brushes that are included with your course enrollment.
2. Bonus Project Pack: Creating mock-ups (no Photoshop required!). You'll learn how to create mockups like the wine glass below (which was created 100% in Procreate!). Mockups allow you to quickly and easily create product images for your online listings without having to physically make each variation or hire a photographer. You can send digital proofs of custom orders without throwing away time and supplies matching your clients' changes.
We also show you how to use Procreate to make cut files, including a demo of making some real vinyl decals!
3. Bonus Course: Procreate Lettering Animations This complete course starts with the basics of animations: how they work, and how they can be created in Procreate. Then, you'll make eight animated projects that each focus on a different type of animation by following our step-by-step lessons.
From basic lettering to depth, dimension, and eye-popping work
The "raspberry cheesecake chunk" piece on the left is great! In fact, we're proud of how it turned out. But it's pretty basic, with limited color variation and features.
The one on the right is based on the exact same lettering but you probably agree that it looks more impressive. In the piece on the right, we've added on these features:
Just these 5 features have transformed the piece. And each of these effects are taught throughout the project packs!
The moral of the story?
This course will give you the hands-on experience to learn the details of creating special effects in-context so that you can apply them to any of your lettering projects after.
Transform your digital lettering from basic to impressive!
"This is the essential course for anyone who wants to learn or improve their digital lettering skills. I’ve been lettering with the Procreate App for over a year and am blown away by how much I’ve learned in this course.
Jillian and Jordan have made learning Procreate fun, exciting, and intuitive, and the project-based applications within the course provide step-by-step instructions that are systematic and user-friendly. This course is worth every single penny and more!
After a year of trying to learn Procreate on my own at a snail’s pace, I finally have the confidence that comes with receiving a comprehensive, ground-up education."
- Sophie Taylor, College Professor and Calligrapher
