What do I need to take this course?
The ideal set of tools for this iPad lettering course are: an iPad Pro + an Apple Pencil + the Procreate iPad app. Procreate is my favorite digital art app and it was created specifically to work with the latest technology available in the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, especially the pressure dynamics.
What if I have an older iPad?
If you are using an older iPad, iPad Air or don’t have an Apple Pencil — don’t panic! You can still totally take advantage of and enjoy this course! If you have an older iPad, you won’t be able to use an Apple Pencil (it’s created to work exclusively with the iPad Pro) BUT you can use a different brand of stylus.
To read more about what stylus options will still connect with the Procreate app, check out the list here. This will allow you to still take advantage of most of the features I’ll go over in the course. And… if all else fails, you can actually use your finger to create beautiful lettering! I know, it sound crazy, but thanks to a few smoothing features I’ll show you inside the app, you can take that shakey index finger and turn it into the perfect lettering stylus!
Do I need any programs to take this course?
You will need to purchase the Procreate app from the app store once you get into the course. The app is $5.99 but I can assure you — it is worth EVERY penny. It’s an incredibly powerful piece of software that will give you a mobile art studio wherever you go!
What if I don’t have any experience with hand-lettering?
That’s okay! I take you through the process of creating hand-lettering step-by-step inside the course, and I think you’ll actually find that lettering on the iPad is even easier than sketching with a pencil and paper because of some hidden smoothing features I’ll show you inside the course. ;) Also, keep in mind you can use the techniques I teach in this class not only for lettering but for drawing, doodling and digital painting!
