The easiest way to paint RAIN in Procreate 💧

Updated: Sep 10, 2022

Did you know you could add a rain effect in Procreate in less than 30 seconds? Ready, set, go!

Quick browse:

Step 1: Draw pale blue dots everywhere

Making sure you are working on a new layer above the rest of your artwork, cover your entire canvas with little dots. Depending on how much time you want to spend drawing dots, there are a few techniques you can use:

  • Drawing every dot one by one

  • Using a stippling brush to draw a series of dots following your strokes

  • Using a splatter brush to add clusters of dots

  • Using my free rain brush 💧

Pro tip: The more dots you draw, the heavier the rain will appear at the end.

Step 2: Add Motion blur

This is where you get to fully customize your rain!

  1. In the adjustment panel, select Motion blur.

  2. Swipe your finger in the direction you want your rain to fall.

  3. Swipe a short stroke to create lighter rain, or a long stroke to create heavy rain.

Step 3: Play with blending modes

If you want, you can also play with the blending mode and opacity of your rain layer.

I personally really like the vibe you get by using Add.

Pro tip: Consider duplicating the layer once or twice to stack the effect to get an even more dramatic result!

Ta-da! 🥳
