The market is pretty chock-full of painting apps for the iPad, but one that has particularly caught our attention is Procreate.

Procreate comes with an entire library of brushes with everything from pencils, inks, charcoals, to artistic brushes that lay beautiful painterly textures. Each brush can be customised with the Brush Studio or you can download thousands of brushes to suit any style you can imagine. If that wasn't enough, you can even make your very own custom brushes.

I noticed a spike in students submitting work to Rookie Awards 2020 and thought it would be a good idea to dig in and share some of my favourite entries. We are no affiliated with Procreate, but it's got our support so go check them out and start creating.

Procreateยฎ - Made for Artists
Procreate is the most powerful and intuitive digital illustration app available for iPad. Itโ€™s packed with features artists love, and itโ€™s an iPad exclusive.
