Procreate has made animation FUN!

Other software is too techy and complicated for my taste.  But Procreate’s new animation tools are easy and really fun to use!

In this class, I show how to add simple, easy motion to the illustrations you already have. There's a succinct breakdown of what and where the new tools are. Next, we'll brainstorm what KIND of movement to add.

With tons of step by step examples, you'll be able to follow along even if you've never made a GIF. This is not a class about serious animation. We're not going to be making labor intensive, complex animation. Just fun, easy, tips and tricks for adding simple motion to your art.

Even if you don't have your own finished illustrations, there's going to be files so you can jump straight in and try it all out. If you're ready to add new life to your art, then let's dive in.

I've watched a few Procreate 5 animation tutorials on Youtube, but for me, this one had the best instructions and examples. I love that Brooke clarified everything she was doing and I REALLY appreciated showing multiple ways of animating an illustration. I forget about certain tools in Procreate, so it was great to be able to see how some work perfectly for animating.

Brittani Harris

I have never done any kind of animation before and I was so worried it would be complicated in Procreate. This class completely blew my mind! Brooke explained everything so well. Her instructions are easy to follow. If you have basic knowledge of the Procreate app, this class is perfect for you.

Definitely learned a lot from this class! Can't wait to start applying animation to my artworks and maximize the functionality of Procreate! Didn't know we can do so much with Procreate! Thank you, Brooke!

Gagandeep Kaler

Amazing tutor, I would definitely recommend her courses for anyone interested in quickly picking up a digital art.. Really happy and satisfied with this course :)

Martina Stock

Brookes classes are amazing. I can only recommend taking all of them. The Procreate5 update was just out and here is a class about the animation tool already. Her teaching is clear and engaging. Every level of experience can learn something from her. In this class the animation features is explained in detail with fun examples and work sheets for downloading. After the class you will be ready to do your own animations.

Liz Kohler Brown

Another gorgeous class by Brooke! I love how she broke the animation options down into sections so you can try a few different types of movements. This is a must watch for anyone who wants to do animation in Procreate 5!

Marisa McFarlane

Fun class! Simple steps - didn't know the hand-lettering animation was literally redrawing what you wrote in new frames, so quick. Thanks Brooke!

Lena Hegårdh

Brooke is a great teacher. I love that so much information is packed into this class and it moves along at a pace that keeps me interested and challenged. I will be looking for more classes by this instructor.
