The Procreate interface is simple and minimal in its design. It’s incredibly intuitive, but can be tricky to get your head around if you’re completely new. Most of the toolbars are out of sight. This gives a nice clear view of the artwork, but can be intimidating for newbies to find their way around.
The app is designed with the most commonly used actions initiated by gestures. For example, one of the most useful is a 2 finger tap on the screen to undo your last action. Gestures like this dramatically speed up your workflow and really make the most of the touch screen device!
But it can be easy to forget what gestures you have available! So today I’m sharing a free cheat sheet to help with that. This quick reference guide cuts straight to the essential elements you need to know for using Procreate. It includes the interface, most common gestures, helpful Layer actions and an overview of the Brush panel + custom brush install instructions. These components are really the core functionality of the app, and a great starting point to get you on your way.
