Top 20 Best Painting Brushes for Procreate

Top 20 Best Painting Brushes for Procreate

Introduction

Procreate has become the go-to digital painting application for artists and designers, thanks to its powerful features and user-friendly interface. Whether you are a professional artist or an aspiring hobbyist, having the right set of brushes is crucial for creating stunning digital artwork. In this article, we will explore the best painting brushes for Procreate that will help you unleash your creativity and take your digital artistry to the next level.

Understanding the Importance of Brushes

Before we delve into the best brushes for Procreate, it’s essential to understand why brushes play a vital role in digital art creation. Brushes determine the stroke, texture, and overall appearance of your artwork, allowing you to mimic real-world painting techniques digitally. From fine lines to bold strokes, the right brushes can add depth and realism to your artwork.

The Top Essential Brushes for Procreate

2. Watercolor Painting Brushes for Procreate

What’s included: -20 Watercolor Brushes -3 paper textures canvas

The PDF file you downloaded has the Mediafire/Google Drive option to download the product ZIP file.

The Zip file downloaded using PDF files includes: (Unzip is required before installing brush in Procedure.) -(20 watercolor brushes saved as .brushset files) -(3 paper texture canvas saved as .procreate file)

IMPORTANT: This brush requires an iPad(Procreate version 5 or later installable iPad), Apple pencil, and Procreate app (version 5).

The actual reason why watercolor expression is difficult in digital work is because of texture expression. Imagine drawing a watercolor painting on a piece of glass. Would it be the same as a normal watercolor painting on a sheet of paper? The texture of the paper is a very important factor. With my digital watercolor brushes, you can express those textures just like a real watercolor painting.

You can see the watercolor effect with a few strokes. But, drawing a full-scale watercolor painting art is not easy to do. So you need to know how to paint with digital watercolors.

I will make digital watercolor tutorials on YouTube regularly. If you follow my tutorials, you’ll find how I do things with my digital brushes and learn how to paint watercolor. If you have any questions, please contact me.Thank you for your purchase and I hope you have a great time.

8. Watercolour Procreate Bundle – 6 brushes for calligraphy & painting

Watercolour Procreate Bundle

Digital download Digital file type(s): 1 ZIP

A complete set of brushes for watercolor lettering and painting in Procreate app on iPad Pro. Bundle contains 6 professional hand-made brushes that I myself use everyday. 6 brushes for the price of 3 (for a limited time).

1. Watercolor Calligraphy Brush Works magically like real watercolours, complete with a slight feathering of the edges, automatic fading just like when a brush runs out of colour, and layering of transparent strokes. Took me a long time to get it just right. Also uses a little ‘streamline’ to make all your curves automatically smoother. Available in my shop as a separate brush. (It’s a bestseller!)

2. Watercolor Outlining Brush A thin brush that changes thickness and opacity on pressure to simulate strokes done with a thin paintbrush and watercolors.

3. Watercolor Painting Brush Closest thing to using real watercolors. Fades on pressure so you can layer strokes to create the watercolor effect. The florals in above pictures are done using this. Complete with a little feathering.

4. Watercolor Painting Flat Brush A variation on the above without the fading on pressure for when you just want to do the base layers wth flat colors. Still creates a feathered and layered effect simulating watercolors.

5. Watercolor Washes Brush Of course, you also need to do the backgrounds. Perfect for creating large watercolor textures with just a few strokes. Layer some different colors for beautiful effects.

6. Watercolor Dry Washes Brush A variation on the above that simulates a dry brush. Great for smaller washes and when you want to introduce a slightly different texture.

Please note this is a digital download only. You need the Procreate app for iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to use this brush. Does not work in Photoshop.
