iPad Lettering: Custom Procreate Color Palettes. Setting up custom color palettes in Procreate is super easy. I’m teaching you how in today’s video tutorial. Plus, I’m sharing a ton of custom color palettes you can use in your lettering and design projects!
Custom Procreate Color Palettes
Color selection is an integral part of the design process. Sometimes, we pick colors based merely on what we love or what looks pretty. Other times, we need a piece to convey a particular emotion or mood and have to consider what feeling each color conveys. A quick Google search on “Color Meaning” will give you a list of what each color typically represents.
Why Use Color Palettes?
Using Procreate Color Palettes is a great way to stay organized and streamline your design process. Not only are they fun to create and set up, but it’s also easy as can be! I’m teaching you how to set them up in a short video lesson.
Before we get into the video lesson, you’ll want to download a color palette you love. I’m using the Mojito Monday palette below (you can download it here) but I also have an entire page of color palettes you can access and use on the DND Color Palettes page. New palettes are added to that page regularly.
If you’re not using your iPad already, transfer the photo to it and let’s get started! I use AirDrop to move things from my laptop to my iPad, but you could use Dropbox or even email it to yourself to get the photo on your iPad.
Procreate Video Lesson
Disclaimer: On the day I shot this video, I wasn’t thinking clearly and did my weight workout right before. So my arms were shaky and I was still kind of out of breath. ? Rookie move. Next time, I’ll shoot the video first, and then workout. But I digress, let’s do this!
See how easy that is?
Apple Pencil Cover
I always get questions about my pencil cover, so I’ve linked to it below. You can see more of my Favorite Lettering Supplies here.
Put it into practice!
Now, take the color palette you just created and whip up some fun lettering using it! I’ll be teaching you how to create this style and sharing the exact brushes I use in a coming post.
