How to Color in Procreate

Before we get to the pages, here’s a closer look at Procreate and how to use the app for coloring.

Procreate is great for this type of creative exercise.  If you’ve never used it, the app is available for a one-time purchase in the App Store, and many creative professionals use it as their primary workspace.

All that to say: Procreate has all the flexibility and power you’ll need to create great work.  The app comes equipped with a simple interface, and the Procreate brush library is extensive.

Plus, working in a digital format means that your coloring pages are instantly ready to use by importing them into Procreate.

Here’s a closer look at how to set everything up after you’ve downloaded your coloring page.

#caption#You can use your photo library to import images from your iPad into Procreate.

Option 1: Import from the Photo Library

  1. Navigate to the Procreate Gallery / Main Page.
  2. Select Photo in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Choose your coloring page.
  4. Add a new layer by tapping the + icon.
  5. Color!

#caption#Saving your work in the Files App is a great way to import more image formats into Procreate.

Option 2: Import from the Files App

  1. Navigate to the Procreate Gallery / Main Page.
  2. Select Import in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Choose your coloring page.
  4. Add a new layer by tapping the + icon.
  5. Color!

Once your coloring page is imported into Procreate, you have a few different techniques that you can use to make sure you're coloring without covering the linework. This will depend on the format/file type of your coloring page.

#caption#When working with PNG coloring pages, it's important to order your layers so that you don't cover the linework.

#alt#An image of the Procreate Layers menu with numbers indicating the steps for working with PNG coloring pages.

How to Work with PNG Coloring Pages

For PNG files, you can simply add a new layer beneath the imported image and use it for coloring. This is because PNG files have transparency, making them an easy-to-use format for digital coloring.

Here's how to organize your layers in Procreate:

  1. Open the layers panel in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Add a new layer by tapping the + icon.
  3. Tap the new layer, and drag it under your coloring page layer.
  4. Color on the new layer below your coloring page.

#caption#Using Blend Modes in Procreate is an effective alternative way to work with coloring pages.

#alt#An image of the Procreate Layers menu with numbers indicating the steps for working with JPG and PDF coloring pages.

How to Work with JPG & PDF Coloring Pages

For PDFs and JPGs, you’ll need to change the blend mode of your layer. This is because the areas you'd color need to be made transparent instead of white.

Here's how to organize your layers in Procreate:

  1. Open the layers panel in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Tap your coloring page layer and hit the N icon next to the layer name.
  3. Scroll up to Multiply and tap the layer again.
  4. Add a new layer by tapping the + icon.
  5. Tap the new layer, and drag it under your coloring page layer.
  6. Color on the new layer below your coloring page.

Once you’ve made the necessary adjustments, you’re ready to color!

Keep in mind that you’ll need to set up any page that you import this way, so be sure to refer back to this section to verify that everything is set up correctly.

FAQs: Coloring Apps vs. Digital Art Apps

We've been talking all about the beauty of using coloring pages in Procreate, but there are other options out there.

Coloring apps have made a splash in the last few years.  Why not download one of those rather than a dedicated art app?

Let's break down the key things you might be wondering about when comparing dedicated coloring apps and art apps like Procreate.

What's the difference between coloring with a coloring app vs. a digital art app?

The biggest difference is that coloring apps are designed with a library of coloring pages already installed.  Finding one with coloring pages you like will be a case of exploring for yourself.

But that ease of use comes with a tradeoff.  Most of these apps are subscription-based, meaning that you’ll pay a monthly fee to access their library and color in their app.

On top of that, your coloring selection may be limited to its own library, and you may not be able to import your preferred coloring pages to the app.

On the other hand, drawing apps like Procreate are more open-ended.  Setting up a coloring page in Procreate takes a few extra steps, but it isn’t difficult.  Once you’re done, you have free rein to do whatever you want.

How do I know what colors to use?

Depending on the app that you choose, there are sometimes curated color palettes provided to help guide you, which can be helpful for beginners.

In digital art apps like Procreate, your color palette is up to you. Check out our article on the best color palettes in Procreate to help you get started.

Are coloring apps easier to use than apps like Procreate?

A coloring app is dedicated to one function, making it great for hobbyists who don't want or need other advanced features.

Procreate has a variety of capabilities and brushes. While it requires a little more setup, it's still a good tool for beginners to use for coloring.

What are the coloring tools available in coloring apps vs. in digital art apps?

The free brush tools in coloring apps are usually limited in terms of effects and textures unless you're willing to upgrade for a one-time fee or subscription. Some are also designed as color by numbers, so you can just tap to fill areas with color instead of using your Apple Pencil.

In Procreate and other drawing apps, you’ll have a wide brush set selection by default. Both programs have brushes that are known for their realism compared to traditional materials. You also have the option of flooding areas with color if you prefer.

Wrapping Up

Adult coloring pages are a great way to destress and get even more use out of using your iPad and Procreate. With such a powerful tool, you can achieve such a level of realistic effects and textures that you'll probably forget you're coloring digitally.

Hopefully, this list provided you with some fun and unique coloring pages that you can have fun with.
