After recently being used to help create a music video, the popular art app, Procreate ($4.99) has just received a major update. For those unfamiliar with the app, Procreate is a studio-grade sketchbook for iPad. This app is packed with the tools you need to create anything from casual art to movie storyboards (up to 1920 x 1408 pixel resolution). You can choose from over 45 different brushes – ranging from sketching pencils and paint brushes, to impossible abstract brushes. If that isn’t enough, you can create and customize your own brushes to use with the app. Procreate offers layer support (up to 16), 100 undo/redo steps, and continuously auto-saves your work – just to name a few features.
