Had fun with the Procreate app again! This time, I decided to add a title and ending card to the video I created in iMovie. Still not entirely confident with video editing and uploading to YouTube, but it is fun to post these iPad speed paintings of mine only using my finger and a generic stylus. Since I recently bought a book called Lifestyle Illustrations of the 1950s, it inspired me to use one of the illustrations by Frank Bellamy as a reference.

Seeing other artists create speed paintings has peeked my interest enough that I have been wanting to figure out how to create my own. There are moments where I know I have a lot to do, but I just want to take a moment to create something for myself. This time I wanted to figure out how to do a quick video of a digital illustration that I could do on my iPad. I already had the Procreate app on there and what is wonderful is it already records every action as a frame of video.
To export the video, you can go to your Actions menu while on the canvas, tap Share, and tap Export Video. Mine took a little while at first so be patient! I chose to email it to myself since I wanted to pop it into iMovie to add music. The music was already an option to use in iMovie, and I thought about adding info about me to the video but I was impatient.
One thing I noticed right away after creating the movie, the colors appeared a bit different on my computer screen from what I chose on the iPad. Be aware this could happen! Of course, since I did the doodle rather fast, every time I look at it I feel I could make it a little brighter and give it higher contrast. Artist’s work is never done right? 🙂
