How to Download Procreate for Windows 10?
Since some of you might have already dropped $600 on a Gaomon PD1560 tablet, many digital artists don't have the money to drop another couple hundred bucks on a brand new iPad + Apple pencil.

Why Are We Hyped for Procreate for Windows 10/8?
As is said - "The unique brush engine is a game changer"
People are comparing Procreate with Photoshop, and I'd say they are two different things.
Procreate focuses mainly on digital painting, therefore, the ability to tweak and create custom brushes has won its fame and popularity dramatically. Painters can get more control over their stylus like magic.
"Using the default brushes or downloading free Procreate brushes someone else has made may be the most obvious option for getting started. However, I find it so satisfying being able to create something that will help me create something else"
However, Photoshop falls to a boarder use of image manipulation, images of any kinds – photos, web designs etc. They offer certain amount of brushes to aid digital painting, but very limited.
