Read more about me
Learning how to create seamless pattern design repeats in Procreate seemed impossible when I first learned how to create patterns. And while it can take a bit of getting your head around, once you master it, everything changes
Procreate has become a part of many surface pattern designers creative workflows – the portability of the iPad means you can create wherever and whenever you like, and Procreate is so intuitive to use with a staggering range of brushes, creating any effect you could want.
Skillshare is an online learning platform and community for creatives, by creatives. There are a staggering 22,000+ classes available in all niches for Skillshare members.
While there is no end of videos and pattern design tutorials available on YouTube, for me, I get more benefits from Skillshare lessons, because of the projects that teachers set. Due to how our brains are wired, putting what you’ve just learned into practice is a far more effective way to embed the new knowledge and skills into our memory. Also the teachers and community are on hand to answer any questions and to give useful feedback, which hasn’t always been my experience on YouTube 😏
Does your favourite artist teach on Skillshare but you don’t have a membership? Look out for news of a new class launching – sometimes they offer free access to classes for non-members
