This article will explain the full process to create a 3D effect on Procreate brush.
This brushes samples will be difficult to use in a painting process, but for calligraphy and lettering it would be perfect.
The brushes settings will be approximately similar in all the exemples, but the shapes will have an important role to create different effects.
To create great tags effect, or give the feeling of volume to strokes, this step by step tutorial will show you how to adjust all settings to arrive to similar results…After you’ll can experiment.
Step 1: Stroke Path
Spacing, jitter and fall off at None
