Procreate is a free sketching and a powerful digital painting program made exclusively for the iPad. But I think that's not just enough to speak of it. The multi-award-winning Procreate does more. It gives you the courage to let go of certainties. It lets you unleash your creativity. It lets you express yourself on a big digital canvas where you can scribble all around to make some cool little things with unique features and intuitive creative tools.

I, sometimes, however, feel an artist using it. I feel as if I have all the powers to unlock. This is because it gives me the power to create beautiful sketches, inspiring paintings, stunning illustrations with powerful layers support, filters, hundreds of brushes anytime - anywhere. Yes, you heard it, right? All you need is an iPad and this super masterpiece that is a complete art studio.

A Frictionless User Interface

The award-winning Procreate has prioritized making it easy to create beautiful digital drawings right from the home screen. Paired with its characteristic use of conversational copy such as colour drop and layers and helpful tools, a user can easily dive into creating some really cool stuff. It also has an easy and clean interface that anyone can understand and enough features to make managing tasks effective but not overwhelming.

150+ Configurable Handcrafted Brushes

With well over 200 handcrafted brush and tool presets from everything from pencils, inks, charcoal, to artistic brushes, you can lay beautifully your ideas to painterly textures. You can also, however, customize them to suit any style you imagine. The fun part comes when you yourself make one for very own. I mean you can make a custom brush by importing images for the brush shape and texture, then set the parameters of the brush attributes such as spacing and rotation. You can also share these with others and import theirs as well.

Complete Color Control

Color is an emotional cue. It affects usability. It’s what gets your audience to see what you want them to see, feel what you want them to feel. Therefore, it gets super important to have the desired color and to make the audience live it. Procreate therefore extends its functionality to over giving a full control on how to work around with colors. Color dynamics, color harmony and color history gives you complete color control and the choice, letting you be creative.

Fluid Work Flow

Multi-touch gestures allow you to continue your work with a flow. Say, for example, the wildly popular two‑finger tap. This is generally used to undo and with three finger tap you can perform redo. As a result, you are solely focused on the work with creativity at the max.

A Lag-Free Working Environment

That's true. With the incredible power of the Valkyrie graphics engine, you can make some serious brushstrokes without a pinch of lag. It paints with an incredible speed of 120fps on supported devices, making sure nothing even comes closer to the speed of the Procreate.

Bring Animation to Life

One thing I like the most about Procreate is the animation assist. Yup that's true - it is a powerful time-lapse + animation tool that brings your creations to life right inside of Procreate. The fun part is when you create looping GIFs and later share on with your friends. As a result, you can create world-class animation that can actually move. Definitely, I would again call it my favourites!

Harness Your Design

There is no vague reason to why its my go-to digital painting software. I mean, you can manipulate the drawing to make it look super realistic. Drawing strokes you create are accordingly perfected in real time, giving even fine-tune to your drawing. With quick, intuitive and efficient paint bucket, you can drag and drop the desired colored icon on the canvas to fill up the drawing shape.

The six customizable menu buttons work in a way you assign. For example, you want to flip something vertically or horizontally or merge down something, you can do it at a press and hold of a finger. Once assigned, you can then flick your wrist around in that direction to execute the button - all in a wink of an eye.

Write Your Own Way

With a wide range of writing styles and gorgeous typography and with powerful type adjustments, you can scale, distort or color your text arrangement for the perfect design. This will ultimately let you just make your type of font.

Spice up your Illustration

Finish up your drawing by giving it an extra special FX. With stunning digital effects, you can polish your work like never before and step up the quality while having great fun. Procreate adds depth to your artwork with fast blur effects that can intuitively control the amount of blur without having to work much.

Procreate vs Photoshop

The smackdown between Photoshop and Procreate is not much. The former is more or less of a Photoshop, Procreate, however, is better optimized for the iPad. It supports Photoshop files so you can import PSD files. Procreate allows you to open non-Apple devices so you can continue working on your tablet. Despite that, Procreate offers an onetime cost of $9.99, while offering no free version. Photoshop on the flip side has a steep learning curve that is more appropriate for serious artists. Adobe Photoshop comes with an annual subscription fee that might not sometimes be appealing.

Is procreate free?

Not really, though! It is $9.99 to download and then no subscription or renewal fee. So, there's no monthly cost to it. You pay for it and that is it.

Is procreate worth it beginner?

Ya. I mean if you don't compare it with Photoshop or illustrator that offers a hell lot of features, Procreate is definitely worth getting along with. It does great with quick and easy freestyle drawing, sketching, and painting.

Is procreate the best drawing app?

Well, electing one would not make a decent judgement; and to be genuinely honest - it depends. It all depends on what you are comfortable with. The kind of style you love and how you work with it. There are many out there. To list, it goes on. However, Affinity Designer, Autodesk Sketchbook, Adobe Photoshop, Astropad studio are few to mention. But remember, the most fun part of finding the best canvas for your project of choice is the adventure in trying them all out! So, I would now shift this question to over you. Which drawing app do you think is a delight to work with?

Our Thoughts On Procreate

In the review's course, we analyzed Procreate to be the best raster graphics editor app for digital painting with a highly responsive interface and zero lag. With its exceptional performance, elegant user interface and an array of configurable brushes, you can seamlessly create your own small little world inside the procreate. But its exclusiveness for iPad limits its accessibility to almost every Windows user.
