If you've been thinking about handlettering in the Procreate app, here are ten reasons why you will love it. I taught myself how to letter using Procreate before I learned how to do brush lettering and modern calligraphy on paper so I've grown to prefer it over traditional lettering. If you've learned traditional first, you might need some persuasion as to why lettering in Procreate is better. So here ya go!...
Learning to letter can be hard enough without the frustration of not knowing what to write. If you're tired of seeing the same janky quotes over and over again and need some fun and humorous sayings, these snarky quotes will inspire your next handlettering design for sure!

You might know by now that working in Procreate is my favorite way to create. And this may be because of all the fun shortcuts and gestures I've learned along the way. Learning to use the Procreate app is really easy with its simplified interface but having that minimal interface means a lot of things may be hidden or not obvious within the main screen. I'm going to show you where all of these hidden actions are and include shortcuts you may not know about.
I've compiled over fifty gestures and shortcuts to use in the app and am sharing them in this post. I'm also offering a PDF cheatsheet you can print and keep next to your iPad as well as a video tutorial showing each of them in action. As if that's not amazing enough, I'm also sharing keyboard shortcuts you can use in Procreate. If you're used to working in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, these may be helpful for you. In addition, I've included iPad shortcuts and Apple Pencil shortcuts.
Once you start using these, you'll find yourself getting disappointed that all the other apps don't have them. And you might even feel silly when you realize you've just attempted to do a Procreate gesture on paper... yeah, I've done that more times than I'd care to admit ... so let's get gesturing!
