Domestika Basics · 7 courses included

This course was updated in June 2020 with new material on Procreate 5’s updated interface and features such as color, cloning, and animation tools and brushes

Throughout the history of digital illustration there have been a succession of leading programs, from FreeHand to Adobe Illustrator, through CorelDRAW and many more. Today, Procreate has taken their place as the top illustration app for iPad. In this seven-course Domestika Basics, master Procreate from scratch with Román García, illustrator and biologist who has collaborated with renowned magazines such as National Geographic and the Real Jardín Botánico of Madrid.

The first course is all about laying the groundwork, analyzing the synergy between Procreate, the iPad Pro, and the Apple Pencil, and why this is the perfect combination for tackling illustration projects. Start by installing the application and beginning to explore its interface.

In the second course, draw your first lines in Procreate before taking a tour of the program's different brushes and basic drawing tools for creating your own digital sketches.

In the third course, get familiar with the Actions menu, which allows you to add images and text, edit the canvas, share images, record your drawing process, and much more.

Focus on the Adjustments menu in the fourth course and explore filters and features such as Blur, Noise, Liquify, Recolor, as well as basic image editing functions.

In the fifth course, discover the importance of layers in the Procreate workflow. See how they are organized, how to create new layers and merge them, and how to organize them into groups. Then, learn about blending modes, masks, and reference layers.

Next, delve into the selection and transformation options and explore how to transform, deform, and select parts of your illustrations.

The seventh and final course of this Procreate Basics is dedicated exclusively to Brushes. Learn how to work with each type and adjust their settings to create different kinds as well as organize them into groups depending on their style.

Román García Mora

Teacher Plus
Illustrator and 3D Modeler

Román García is not only an illustrator but also a biologist. Since 2008, he has been dedicating himself mainly to scientific and informative illustration projects and his drawings have been published in prestigious publications such as National Geographic Magazine and Quo Magazine. He also collaborates with the Real Jardín Botánico of Madrid producing illustrations for the CSIC's Flora Iberica project.

His work consists of creating images of things that we cannot see because they belong to the past, the world of imagination, or simply because they are not perceptible to the human eye. To achieve this, he uses digital illustration as the foundation for his work and combines it with traditional techniques, 3D modeling, and illustrative retouching.
