In Procreate, there are several ways to create colors.
You can use the disc, classic, value or palette. While I have created several palettes, from time to time I like to use a color scheme for sketchnotes.
Adobe has a website dedicated to color palettes that have been created by users of color from all around the world. In the upper left hand corner is a selector to view palettes by most popular, most used and random. You can also filter using different time settings.
For the video below, I chose “most popular” and selected “Gradient Trend 2018.”
In Adobe, when you hover over a palette, you have several options.
In this video I took the following steps to copy and use the color palette using the iPad Pro 2018 model.
- Click on the information icon when the pop-up menu appears over the color blocks.
- Take a screenshot using the iPad buttons (sleep and volume-up).
- Crop the image so just the color block remains.
- Copy the image and delete the screenshot.
- Return back to ProCreate.
- Click Actions (wrench icon), select Add (+), and choose Paste.
- Click the small white button between the sliders to enter “select a color mode.”
- Click on the desired color from the copied Adobe palette.
- When finished with the palette, hide the layer.
