Procreate Version – Important info!

Published January 23 2020

Procreate app does not support the Layer Comps or the automatic scaling/tiling features that Photoshop does so that means that the multiple “Smart Surfaces” styles and the auto scaling/tiling features are only available in the Photoshop version. If Procreate ever adds  these features you can be sure I will update the Procreate Art Surfaces

The appearance of the Procreate versions are slightly different from the Photoshop versions but I have spent many hours making sure they are as faithful to the Photoshop originals as possible. If I ever revise them your download links will always download the latest version

Since Procreate only supports one surface style per Art Surface I have made each one most similar to a hybrid combination mix of the “Basic” and “Subtle” versions found in Photoshop. I kept them on the subtler side for Procreate to make them more flexible and versatile. This means that the Procreate versions also tend to be

The manual was written for the Photoshop version and has not been updated to include Procreate specifics yet but I will be updating it when I can and will be doing more Procreate tutorials in the meantime

 Tip: When you download and open the Art Surface to Procreate, I highly recommend that you make a copy of it before you begin to paint on it. That way you will always have a fresh blank one to start your next piece with. It will save you a LOT of time in the future. You can do this easily by swiping/sliding left on it in the gallery and select ‘duplicate’  

Free Upgrade from Photoshop to Procreate for previous customers

If you bought the Art Surfaces before January 24th 2020 you are entitled to the Procreate version for FREE. I didn’t want to clutter up your downloads folder with Procreate files if you don’t want them but I will be delighted to add them to your account for free, just email me here and I will add the Procreate download links to your account downloads tab

    Amazing paper templates! The Artist Surface pack is a great feature, and simple to use. Instantly adds texture without damaging the original artwork. Use a flattened image, or several layers, they both work. Easy to navigate as well. I am sold on buying pack two as well after trying out the first set. Variety of paper textures give multiple types of surfaces, such as watercolor paper, charcoal paper, graphite textures and MORE. Thank you for these!

    Perfection. Great product – Upgrading my work. Thank you so much!

    After using them for a only few days it’s kind of hard to picture drawing without them. They’re varied and interesting, and each comes with a lot of options that compliment whatever style or medium you’re working with. Also, Nicolai was first rate in terms of email support when I had a couple of questions, not only promptly offering solutions, but going so far as to make a tutorial video for me with additional hints & tips. This product is easy to recommend, especially if you’re a club member and get the 50% price break. I’m definitely going to be buying the second set ASAP.
