1. How to Add Text in Procreate
In this section, we are going to add text in Procreate. I have this amazing script font, Maria Aishane Script from Envato Elements, which we'll use in this curved text Procreate tutorial. We will begin by creating a banner, and then we'll add the text inside the banner.
Go to Procreate > + and you'll get a drop-down menu. Click on the Custom Canvas icon at the top.
Create a Custom Canvas with these settings:
- Width: 1700 pixel
- Height: 1000 pixel
- DPI: 300
- Color Profile: sRGB
On layer 1, you can add a background fill.
On layer 2, you can create a banner using a smooth ink brush. Here, I have used a solid ink 1 brush from the Pro Painters Procreate Brushset. Feel free to use any smooth brush of your choice.
Turn on Snapping. When you move the text with Snapping on, yellow guidelines will appear on-screen, and this shows that the banner is centered.
Now let's move on to adding text in Procreate. I'm using the Maria Aishane Script font in this Procreate text curve tutorial. Once the text is added, rasterize the layer.
2. How to Make Curved Text in Procreate With the Warp Tool
With the text layer selected, choose the Warp option under the Transform tool tab. Depending on your curve, you will have to make adjustments. Here, we want the text to gel well with the banner. Hence we need to pull the ends of the text down and push the middle up. Keep fiddling with the warp option until you get the curve you’re looking for.
