Top Procreate Brushes for iPad illustration
These Lettering Procreate Brushes are my most used BY FAR. I got them when I first started lettering on my iPad. I love the calligraphy brushes, but my favorite is the monoline.
I use the monoline brush to create really clean lines like my Baby Yoda illustration. I drew out all the
Inkers Procreate Brushes Set – I use Smooth Like Butter for details like lines in leaves, highlighting certain areas, or if I want a less polished look, I’ll use it for lettering. Swipe right on the image above to see detail work!
I use the other brushes in this set, too, but Smooth Like Butter is my FAVORITE! You’ll see how I used the polka dot brush on the mandala design above.
When I want to create a hand painted effect, I use the Wild Markers Procreate Brush set. My go-tos are the Detail Brush, Valhalla, Smidir, and Perfect Blend, but I’m used almost ever single one of these brushes. They add texture without being too harsh.
You can see the Valhalla brush really well in the background of image above.
For my Lizzo drawing above, I drew everything out with the Monoline Procreate Brush, then I colored it in with the Valhalla and the detail brush and blended with the perfect blend brush and the next brush on my list….
I couldn’t find these brushes without purchasing a gigantic pack, but they’re really inexpensive.
I was so overwhelmed with uploading these to procreate that I haven’t even scratched the surface, but if you do purchase these, make sure you FOR SURE download the Copicesque Blender brushes.
If you love the grainy styled shading in this Wizard of Oz inspired design above, you’ll want to get the Gouache Shader Brushes and download the Number 1 Varied Opacity Brush. The other ones are great, too…but this one is my favorite.
And if you want the Straggle Brush to create this stray hair effect, take the Skillshare Course Fun with Faces!
