Whether you're an experienced artist or a complete beginner, this step-by-step tutorial will make it easy for you to create captivating lettering styles without any prior experience in Procreate.

Step 1: Getting Started

To begin, open Procreate and create a new canvas with the dimensions 30 centimeters width and 22 centimeters height. Setting the DPI to at least 300 will ensure high-quality printing later on.

Step 2: Typography Exploration

Start by playing around with various typography options. Select a letter of your choice; in this tutorial, we'll use the letter "K" in an italic font style. Place it in the center of the canvas using the transform tool.

Step 3: Sketching the Letter

Using a pencil brush from the calligraphy native brushes, sketch your letter "K" on top of the typography. Don't worry about perfection; a freestyle approach works best. Ensure the letter has rounded corners for a better effect.

Step 4: Inking the Letter

Next, switch to a script or monoline brush from the calligraphy brushes. Carefully ink the letter, drawing single lines and connecting them smoothly. You can adjust the stabilization setting in the brush studio to improve your curves' control.

Step 5: Adding Color Layers

Now, create five layers beneath the inked "K," each representing a different color. Use the color palette provided or pick your own colors. Fill each corner of the letter with a unique hue, making the transitions smooth.

Step 6: Applying Perspective Blur

Select each color layer and apply perspective blur using the adjustments. Move the blur circle to the desired position, adjusting the blurriness until it complements your letter's shape. Gaussian blur can be added for more refinement.

Step 7: Final Touches

Merge all color layers to get a uniform look. Duplicate this group, flatten it, and apply noise to add a textured effect to your artwork. Adjust the saturation to your preference.

Step 8: Creative Elements

Enhance your artwork by adding creative elements such as drops, dots, and other details using various colors to fill any empty spaces and create a dynamic composition.
