ProCreate Calligraphy & Lettering!
« on: March 31, 2022, 08:59:07 PM »
I have been doing a lot of work on my ipad lately using the ProCreate app. This app is absolutely incredible and complete game changer for calligraphers and lettering artists. I am taking a few lettering classes and have been practicing my Spencerian and vaguely Madarasz script  ;D using the ipad pencil. Anyone else? I would love to see what others are doing.

Beautiful work! Iíve been playing with ProCreate for a few months. The main reason I got it was for lettering, but I quickly decided it wasnít for me and ended up only using it for digital sketching and painting. Now Iíve decided to go back and give digital calligraphy and lettering a real shot.
Iíve decided the best way to learn digital calligraphy (Copperplate and Spencerian are my favorites) is exactly the way I learned the pen and ink versionsó daily practice of the individual strokes and letterforms. I did about 3 pages per day of one or two letters/ strokesÖ.so Iíve just started to do the same in ProCreate. Itís been fun getting started and seeing actual progress.

I would love to see more people post with their experiences/ tips/ samples in ProCreate.

Thanks for sharing your experience @way2bizzy ! I love doing calligraphy on ProCreate. And you are right - that is the best way to practice - just as you would on paper. It is a different tool but can get amazing results.

I also really like the tutorials on Every Tuesday. She has both free and paid tutorials and they are a fabulous way to learn the ins and outs of ProCreate while creating some cool art and lettering.
