It’s Tuesday! Time for another tutorial 😉

A few years ago, I shared how to create a pattern letter effect using Adobe Illustrator and I randomly came across that tutorial and wanted to give it a try in Procreate, too. With a few masking tricks and a custom diagonal line pattern brush, pattern letters in Procreate were born! This tutorial is one of my most advanced ones to date, so if you haven’t taken my free Procreate 5X for Beginners course yet, you’ll want to watch the masking module in that first (linked above). Once you understand the steps, though, this is a super fun effect you can apply to your typography or even abstract shapes for some really unique outcomes!

From this advanced tutorial, you’ll learn how to:

✨ Set and rasterize typeable text
✨ Create a custom diagonal line pattern brush
✨ Apply the pattern brush to a selection
✨ Mask multiple, unconnected areas at the same time
✨ Use a regular and inverted mask to alter appearances

Grab the free color palette, font and brush above to get started!

I use the Paperlike screen protector on my 3rd gen iPad Pro (12.9″, 256GB). More info here: https://paperlike.com/everytuesday

I’m also using the NimbleGrip by Uppercase on my 2nd gen Apple Pencil. Check it out/pick it up here: https://every-tuesday.com/grip
