Procreate 4.3 Commission: OUI


press release for procreate new version launch featuring digital artists and digital designers from across the world.

For their third concurrent major app update, Procreate commissioned me to create original artwork in order to introduce their customers to the brand new Text Tool - which allows users to import fonts and craft typographic compositions within the app with ease.

My artwork was featured in the product launch and in promotional materials for the update.

Via Procreate:

"Including precision design controls such as kerning, leading, and baseline empowers professional designers to use Procreate as a versatile tool for drafting layouts like magazine covers, and enables comic artists to add lettering directly to their artwork. Presenting these controls as a series of simple sliders makes designing beautiful typographic arrangements so fun and easy, anyone can do it."

I chose a Gallic rooster (le coq gaulois) as my subject matter, and surrounded him with botanical elements that are all native to or prized in France.

I began with a simple rooster outline before refining linework and layering color into the composition.

The Text tool is an undoubtedly cool feature.

For this drawing, I created the woven-type illusion by keeping some illustrated elements on higher layers than others. Ultimately, no matter what the text says, the illustration will appear to weave and overlap it.
