Intro to Procreate Tutorial:

MAKE ART EVERYDAY // I believe that creativity can make a profound impact on people’s lives, no matter their skill level. If I could offer one piece of advice about establishing a daily art-making habit, it would be to make it as easy as possible for you to create. Make your tools accessible, and remove any barriers that might stop you from doing it. With the iPad and Procreate, you have hundreds of tools and every color imaginable at your disposal. Make art anytime, anywhere.
