You may have just purchased your iPad and install Procreate. You haven’t bought your stylus yet, but you’re impatient and can’t wait any longer: you want draw with your finger in Procreate.
I’ve been there too, and it’s a question I asked myself when I started. Let’s see together to what extent this is possible.
So can I use my finger to draw in Procreate?
The answer is yes of course you can use your finger to draw in Procreate !
Here are the steps to achieve it:
- from your gallery Procreateclick the + at the top right of your screen
- Choose the size of your canvas. Since it is about drawing with your finger, I recommend that you choose a large format
- Your new canvas is created.
- Choose a brush from the Brush Library, accessible from the brush icon at the top right of your screen
- Draw with your finger…
However, as you will quickly notice, draw with your finger not very suitable to do precision drawing : In fact, your finger will be much thinner than a stylus, and it will be difficult for you to precisely control the lines you are going to make on your Canvas in Procreate.

of course it is draw with a pencil. And without hesitation, the best stylus to draw on your iPad it is Apple Pencil (please check its compatibility with your tablet version before purchasing).
