Welcome to the “Learn Shading in Procreate!”

In this class, you will learn shading in a super easy and quick way. You will be guided through six interactive worksheets that will teach you all about placing shadows, their types and workarounds, even how to choose colors for shading to make your illustrations pop.

The class is perfect for those who are not confident when they are shading their artworks. Beginners might get overwhelmed by this topic, but this class will answer every question – the simple, short explanations and clear demonstrative examples will make the class easy to follow.

Proper shading is crucial either in a flat design or in a realistic painting, placing shadows to the right place will make your artwork look natural and compelling.

Light and shadow has its theory and picking up the skill of shading will avoid the mistakes coming from placing shadows randomly or intuitively. The skills learned in this class and the resources coming with it will be your left hand in all of the illustrations you create in the future.

We will use an iPad and Procreate to complete this class, but other digital programs, like Photoshop can be also used.

The class comes with six interactive worksheets and a full Brush Set for drawing with 8 texture brushes and 2 liners.

This is the most compact and effective material you will find online about the fundamentals of shading. The interactive worksheets will ensure that you learn by doing – they include lots of tasks, clear instruction and plenty of blank objects to practice on.
