Blackletter Procreate Learning Guide

A comprehensive set of learning materials to help you master the four fundamental styles of Blackletter calligraphy.

Blackletter Procreate Learning Guide

After nearly a decade of practicing and teaching calligraphy (with a dedicated focus on flat pen hands like blackletter), I decided to give it a go in Procreate. I’ve spent more than a thousand hours of practice and experimentation in this powerful app and have released a number brush sets that have become toolbox staples for thousands of artists. And now I’m thrilled to announce the culmination of all my learning, teaching, and Procreate experimentation; The Blackletter Procreate Learning Guide.

While it includes brushes, it’s not just a brush set like other Procreate add-ons. It’s also a full-fledged instructional roadmap to teach you how to become proficient in the four fundamental blackletter hands; Textura, Rotunda, Bastarda, and Fraktur. If you’ve read my books or tutorials, you might be familiar with these hands. However, this instructional material features four new unique alphabets — all of which have been streamlined for easy execution with the Apple Pencil.

While calligraphy is traditionally done on paper, working digitally is infinitely more forgiving. After all, you can’t double-tap to undo a mistake on paper! However, the best part of using this digital workbook is that you can apply your learnings on paper! If you have an iPad an an Apple Pencil, there is literally no quicker way to learn blackletter calligraphy.

Included in this set:

  • A high-resolution Procreate project project with 26 alphabet practice exercise layers (one for each letter). Each layer contains 8 individual letter exercises: minuscule (lowercase) and majuscule (uppercase) for the Textura hand, minuscule (lowercase) and majuscule (uppercase) for the Rotunda hand, Minuscule (lowercase) and majuscule (uppercase) for the Bastarda hand, and minuscule (lowercase) and majuscule (uppercase) for the Fraktur hand.
  • 6 powerful brushes, each configured to dynamically orient themselves based on the position of your Apple Pencil, which will allow you to execute the full spectrum of unique strokes that these alphabets are comprised of.
  • An in-depth, hour-long instructional video packed with valuable information, tips, tricks, and special techniques.

    How well does this Blackletter set work for a left-handed person? Would it make learning a lot more difficult?

      Thanks for getting in touch Tammy and I can certainly answer your question for you now. The good news is that digital brushes work via pressure sensitivity and therefore you can use either hand with ease. If you would like to hear what tools and accessories some of our most popular designers like to use for their procreate drawings, I have popped a link to an article we released last year for you to check out:
