25 Best Pencil Brushes to Elevate Your Procreate Sketches

25 Best Pencil Brushes to Elevate Your Procreate Sketches

Are you an artist looking to take your Procreate sketches to the next level? Well, you’re in luck! In this article, we’re going to explore the 25 best pencil brushes that will help you achieve stunning and lifelike sketches using Procreate. These brushes are designed to mimic the texture and feel of traditional pencils, making your digital artwork feel more authentic than ever before.

Introduction

Digital art has revolutionized the way we create and appreciate visual masterpieces. However, for artists who are accustomed to traditional mediums like pencils, recreating the same organic feel on a digital platform can be challenging. That’s where pencil brushes for Procreate come into play. These brushes offer an array of textures and effects that can transform your digital sketches into realistic, hand-drawn works of art.

Why Pencil Brushes Matter for Digital Sketching

While Procreate offers a wide range of brushes, pencil brushes hold a special place in the hearts of artists. They allow for precise control, subtle shading, and the creation of intricate details that can be challenging to achieve with other brush types. Pencil brushes bridge the gap between traditional and digital art, enabling artists to bring the warmth and character of pencil sketches to their digital canvases.

Choosing the Right Pencil Brush for Your Style

When selecting pencil brushes for your Procreate sketches, consider factors such as pencil grades and texture variation. Different pencil grades, from H to 6B, offer varying levels of hardness and darkness, allowing you to create a diverse range of effects. Texture variation, on the other hand, adds depth and authenticity to your sketches, replicating the grainy appearance of paper and the tactile feel of traditional pencils.

► A set of 14 handmade charcoal and pencil brushes for Procreate to give a traditional media look to your drawings! The set includes charcoal brushes (great for shading), and different pencil brushes that can be used for sketching.

► You will receive a ZIP containing the 14 brushes, in .brushset format.


To use these brushes, you will need:

  • The iPad app Procreate (the brushes will only work in Procreate)
  • An iPad + stylus: even though the brushes will work with other iPad models and third party styluses, I recommend the iPad Pro + Apple Pencil combo, as they’re currently the most precise & accurate tools for drawing in Procreate. The brushes were created & tested using an Apple Pencil so I cannot guarantee that they will behave as advertised with third party styluses.

9. Procreate Pencil Brushes

's procreate pencil brushes

This Procreate brush pack contains the 4 brushes I use for all my drawings in procreate and an additional 10 pencil-like brushes that you might like, making it a total of 14 brushes! The goal of this pack is to give you a few brush options so that you can find one or two that feels comfortable and suits your style

Since I got my first iPad in 2016 I’ve been struggling to find pencil-like brushes that actually looked good and felt comfortable to use. That’s why I customised my first pencil and sketch brush that you can find for free here: https://gumroad.com/l/rosn However, those two are a little outdated now since my style and preferences has changed (and the app and iPad changed as well) so I decided to make a bunch new brushes so that I could switch from a computer to only using my new iPad for all my art and comic work. My go to is the Charcoal HB which is a lookalike to my favourite brush in Krita (a drawing program not available on iPad)!

Included in the download is a 10min video of me going through the brushes, 3 example procreate videos with artwork where I used these brushes and a screenshot of my pressure sensitivity settings (to avoid hand strain and injury). This pack has a total of 11 pencil brushes, 2 gradient brushes and 1 colour block brush.

I currently use an iPad Pro 4th gen, Apple Pencil gen 2 and Procreate 5+ . I’ve tested the pack with my 2016 1st gen iPad Pro and Apple Pencil gen 1, and it appears to feel and work the same, if this is not the case for you and you receive and error please do contact me. Also if you have any issues with the pencils do contact me via: info@hushbird.com or send me a DM on Instagram telling me you bought the brush pack

Thank you so much for your support!

12. Pencil Pack – Procreate Brushes

pencil pack – procreate brushes brushes pack 99223

Get These Brushes

The Pencil Pack features 21 custom brushes in a variety of different pencils and textures. These brushes started on real pencil and paper, were then scanned in at a high resolution, and optimized in Procreate to make them as realistic as possible.

Many brushes use the Apple Pencil’s tilt capability for realistic side shading. Every texture used is seamless to ensure perfect brush strokes every time. A short description of each brush is in the product images to help you get a feel for how the tools can be used.

Also included in this pack are 8 color palettes which are based on real colored pencil sets. I eyedropped every swatch to make sure every color was accurate to the real thing. Luminance and Polychromos pencils are my favorite to use traditionally so I picked these two sets for color palettes.

Lastly, 2 textures I created and scanned are included in this pack. They are high resolution images—3000 x 3000 pixels at 300dpi—and seamless so you can use them no matter how large you work. They’re best used with blend modes.

This product is only compatible with Procreate 4+ and above.

Here’s the thing that regularly slips aways from our minds when observing the finished work of art — this infinite excellence has started with a pencil sketch. It could be a detailed one, encompassing every conceived element of the composition, carefully taking its place. Or vice versa, the pencils can set the quick and vague outlines to grasp the core concept, leaving some space for the imagination to elaborate later. Despite the intentions, it all starts with the graphite pencil, which means this collection of *Pencil Procreate Brushes couldn’t be more relevant!

The enjoyable workflow has just become even more convenient thanks to the well-crafted tools you can charge your Apple pencil with — 25 Procreate brushes, featuring various sorts of graphite styles. Give a test to soft, hard, hatching & elegant strokes, behaving as the real-life pencils, responding to the pressure sensitivity level. But what illustration can be done without the canvas?
