Today’s Procreate tutorial shows how you can quickly and easily create diagonal line shading for your lettering, giving a vintage feel to your work. This technique has a classic style and is perfect for embellishing large size lettering pieces.
If you were to create this by hand, you would need to paint each individual line one-by-one, getting the angles and spacing right. Not only would this take a lot of time, but would surely have you seeing double after a couple of letters!
You’ll be happy to hear there’s a brush for that! You’ll be even happier to hear you can download it for FREE along with 5 other handy texture brushes in the Texture Toolkit sample pack! Go ahead and do that first, and then we can move on to the tutorial.
Got your brushes ready? Great! Watch the video below for a demo using your new ‘Diagonal Shader’ brush (included in the download).
