Stunning Procreate brushes to take your art to a whole new level.
We've put together an extensive list of premium and free Procreate brushes to inspire your creativity.
There is such beauty in drawings, paintings, or lettering done by hand. And in this fantastical digital age, there is a desire to be able to create the same lines or brush strokes digitally. Unfortunately, not all digital art programs are created equally.
The good news is Procreate has quickly become one of the most brilliant programs for creating artwork digitally. And today we’ve put together a list of some of the best Procreate brushes, both premium and free, to take your art to the next level.
For those of you who are new to Procreate brushes, it’s important to know a few details before you decide if it’s the best digital art program for you.
Most importantly, Procreate is a program you can use to draw on an iPad with a stylus. While this will give you more control over your strokes and shading, it does require having an iPad and the Procreate program. However, once you have these two things, it’s a breeze to get the brushes and backgrounds you need to make beautiful, realistic artwork.
A benefit to Procreate is once you have the right brushes, many of which you can find in our list below, your options to create are limitless. With one stylus, you can switch between different brushes, markers, or even pencils to create detailed, intricate designs. The nature of Procreate allows for minute nuances in your designs, giving you the ability to play with shadows and light in a way that hasn’t been seen in a digital art program before.
With so many varying brush options and styles, Procreate really has advanced the world of digital art. You can go from watercolor to stencils to metallic engravings with just a few light taps of the stylus. For artists, especially those on the go, Procreate is a life changer.
Procreate is often compared with Illustrator, but the two digital art programs are quite different. For one, Procreate uses raster-based images. As a result, you can’t scale your Procreate designs, but you do have more control over how they’re created.
On the other hand, Illustrator is a vector-based program. Vectors are easy to scale and maintain their quality no matter their size. However, in order to be scalable, vectors don’t have the flexibility of a raster. Procreate allows you to create pixels, while Illustrator has already formed paths you can adjust.
Another big difference between Procreate and Illustrator is how they’re used. As already mentioned, Procreate is used with an iPad and a stylus. Illustrator, however, works best on a desktop.
Both Procreate and Illustrator are great programs for artists and designers. However, for those who want the realistic feeling of drawing, painting, or sketching, Procreate is the way to go.
