Thanks a bunch!
hat brush are you using?
I missed the name of the artist you like….Steve?
Hi. I bought this pack and I’m struggling to do gradients or even graining layers with tilt, and I think that might has to do with pressure sensitivity settings. Is there an optimal pressure sensitivity setting for Procreate that would help me achieve the best results?
Hi Lane! When I’m using an overlay layer, it doesn’t work the same way as yours does. The overlay layer acts more like a highlighter than an actual color layer and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. (a user on YouTube had the same problem as well)
The trick I've found with Overlay layers is to paint with mid-tones. (around 50% on the value scale). You can use any colors, as long as you stick to a mid-value, and it will simply modify the hue/saturation. When you use lighter or darker values that will push and pull the values of your image. That can be useful. I often use Overlay mode to both alter color and values. You just have to be mindful of this. If you only want to modify color, then choose mid-values from the color window.
Here's a new portrait drawn with Pastel Pro Pack! I tend to do roughly 70% of a drawing using one or two of the pencil brushes (at the top of the brush list), then finish with broad, heavy texture, strokes from the other brushes. Much of the process is about controlling edges and value contrast. I talk a good bit about my process, including how I set up my iPad for efficient drawing, in this live demo on the Proko channel: https://www.proko.com/lesson/pastel-drawing-in-procreate-with-lane-brown-livestream/discussions

Awesome demo Lane!
Attached are a couple of recent drawing from life using the Charcoal Master Pack. I use the smudge tool (included in pack) quite often as I work, both as a means of softening edges and reducing unwanted contrast. I find that it often work well to smudge (soften) a rough area of the drawing, then go back over it with more defined and controlled marks.
What if we have already bought your brushes, how do we get access to the timelapses? <3
