Digital tangling on the iPad with Procreate Part 3

Here we go again šŸ™‚

In Part 2 of this write-up, I introduced you to layers. Today I want to show you some powerful features of layers in Procreate.


Coloring, Shading,Ā and Texture in Procreate

Everyone has their own way of coloring or/and shading. Today I would like to share one of my methods with you.

We will explore

  • Layers and their properties.
  • Changing the opacity of layers.
  • The difference between a Reference Layer and Alpha Lock.
  • Changing the brush type, color, size, and opacity.

Tangle along – I will demonstrate by shading a ball shape.

The very same principle can be applied to any shape. You will find that different pens create different textures. Have some fun playing around with the opacity, size, brush,Ā and color.

Till next time!

Hugs, Ina
