Tablet: iPad Pro 12.9 256GB in Space Gray
I'm not going to lie, this baby is pretty pricey! But between work, school and my art it was an investment and I get a lot of use out of it. There are certainly smaller more affordable versions that have less memory, but I think of it like I do with most electronics - get the largest that you can afford. Rarely have I ever said 'boy, I wish that I got a smaller, cheaper version" but I have often said - "boy I wish that I had gone a bit bigger". If you are serious about your art then go big, or go home - right?
Pencil: Apple Pencil 2nd Generation
A stylus is a stylus, right? Nope - turns out a case of having the right tools really mattering. Sure, there are off-brand stylus options that work passably well. At the end of the day though, the Apple Pencil is FAR superior. When creating things like watercolor art, the pressure sensitivity that the Apple Pencil has is the absolute best that there is. There are two generations of Pencil, so be sure that the one you purchase is compatible with the iPad that you purchase. Be sure to score some extra replacement tips while you are there!
Case: iBlason Covers
I will be the first to admit that I go through covers often, because my mood shifts so much. This company makes some of my favorite designs. The case folds to create a stand, really helpful for propping it up just the littlest bit to draw easier (and to watch videos easier too!) It has a spot to store your pencil and a screen protector built in. They come in a variety of sizes and colors, so you are sure to find something that you love!
This is the most incredible website out there in my opinion! The more that you purchase the bigger the discount, so once you hit 5 items in your cart you are saving 50% off EVERYTHING!
It takes a little hunting to find the brushes that you want, but it is so worth it! The Animal Stamps by Art with Flo, the Alcohol Inks by Alaina Jensen and the foliage and cloud brushes are to die for. Some brushes are free, others cost a few dollars.
Etsy is another fantastic source for Procreate brushes and textures. My favorite seller is CreatewithProcreate who has some of the coolest galaxy and tree brushes ever! There is something for everyone - lettering, painting, portraits... you name it and you are pretty likely to find it. Many sellers offer discounts for multiple items too!
