November 2018

It’s the last Thursday in November, which means it’s time for your free December 2018 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. I decided to change things up and create some reverse/negative space lettering this month surrounded by holiday doodles. All of the doodles were made with my custom monoweight procreate brush, which is available for free in the Every-Tuesday Resource Library. The gold and silver textures are from my Procreate Metallic Kit, available hereFor the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the December 2018 desktop wallpapers in two common resolutions: 1280x1024px and 1920x1080px, with and without dates. I’ve left the year off of the ‘no-dates’ versions, so you can use it for any December in the future, too!

With the holidays fast approaching, Spence and I decided to create a special gift for Every-Tuesday readers this year! Introducing the Winter Watercolor Mini Kit! Below, you can download a kit of winter watercolors as transparent pngs which I painted and Spence enhanced in Photoshop for your holiday needs 🙂 Over the next month and a half, I’ll be sharing tutorials using elements from the mini kit and elements from the full kit available here. Let’s kick this off with a winter watercolor holiday postcard!

Today I’m excited to announce my newest online course, 3D Lettering in Procreate! This course will walk you through all of the tools, workflow and effects needed to create believable + stunning, pop-off-the-screen dimensional iPad lettering! The course was created with beginners in mind and includes an entire ‘beginner basics’ section to get you comfortable with 3D essentials so you can feel confident heading into the advanced projects later on in the course. No lettering experience is necessary – I share my trick for using existing typefaces if that’s something you’d prefer 😉 The course also comes with ALL of the original Procreate files from the videos, so you’ll have them as reference if you ever need them. Today I’m sharing the course trailer plus additional details, below!

One major change that came with Procreate’s last update was masking. It might not have seemed major if you aren’t familiar with masking, but it was actually a bigger deal than it probably got credit for. Masking essentially allows for a non-destructive workflow. What that means, is instead of erasing something you don’t need, then having to draw it back in if you change your mind, masking ‘hides’ the part you don’t want and you can bring back the original easily at any time. Pretty nice. You can check out how awesome masking is in Photoshop here and it actually works pretty similarly in Procreate. In this week’s tutorial, I’ll take you through the two most common lettering scenarios where I use masking in Procreate. Once you begin masking, you’ll see the immediate advantages and how much faster (and efficient) it makes creating and editing.
