||"If you are an artist with an iPad® and don't use Procreate; you are crazy. If you don't yet have an iPad®, Procreate is the reason to get one." Blue Ember Studios (@blue_ember)
Procreate is the only studio-grade sketchbook for iPad®. Whether you're storyboarding the next Hollywood blockbuster, illustrating a kid's book or a casual artist, Procreate puts you in a league of your own.
Packed with over 45 professional brushes ranging from true-to-life sets of sketching pencils and gorgeous paint brushes, to impossible abstract brushes. Procreate is a professional studio of tools at your finger tips.
Procreate paints fast. Really fast. This is due to our game-changing OpenGL® ES 2.0 painting engine, Silica™. Made exclusively for iPad®, Silica™ uses the powerful GPU in your iPad® to achieve results impossible in other apps. Deep 48-bit colour painting, a liquid-silk smudge tool and enormous brush sizes are all possible in a crisp retina resolution while remaining completely lag-free.
Procreate has pioneered the way by fusing ground-breaking brush architecture with the easiest and most powerful brush creation available today. Watch each stroke come to life as a smoke brush twists and turns as you paint or how a realistic, organic brush behaves differently with every stroke.
Take those brushes to a canvas bigger than a Blu-ray® movie and you'll capture incredible detail like never before on a mobile device. By the way, don't worry about making a mistake. You've got 16 HD layers and 100 undo/redo states to keep you safe.
You won't even notice it, but Procreate saves every…single…stroke. Besides keeping you in the zone, you can always expect to come back to exactly the same spot you left it every time. Procreate all boils down to intelligent design; the deceptively simple UI keeps you in the creative zone by putting the features you use most right up front. With this attention to detail your creativity has no bounds.
