Rull Brushes, a set of painterly, surprisingly gritty paint brushes for Procreate on iPad, inspired by the famous "Nikko Rull" brush from revered Procreate and concept art veteran Nikolai Lockertsen. You can quickly and easily paint grungy, eroded strokes, great for concept art and starting a painting!
Rull Brushes includes:
Uni-direction brush - great for painting a combination of marks like straight lines and faded sides
Follow-stroke brush - which will follow the direction of your finger, or the angle you tilt your Apple Pencil (apple pencil required for this feature)
The next freebie of 2017 is Light Brushes, a set of 5 Procreate brushes sampled directly from real, high-quality photos of light.
If you've ever wanted to add realistic light flares to your artwork, these are for you! You can either 'stamp' them in and position them with the transform tool, or you can drag your finger in the direction you want the light to point.
Colored Pencil Scribbles, is a free set of 2 child-like, authentic-looking colored pencils for Procreate on iPad. Designed to have an organic real-world feel, the lines have excellent color blending, and work GREAT with Toon Color and Master Color from Tip Top Brushes. The have tons of character and are indistinguishable from real scribbles on paper. great for children's books and design!
Colored Pencil Scribbles includes:
Pencil Scribbles 1 - probably the more generally useful one, as it features the most even-toned edges of the two, allowing for smoother blending and coloring.
Pencil Scribbles 2 - This one has a bit more character with darker lines and single flourishes, making it a great choice for adding texture and detail to outer edges.
Crayon Scribbles is a free set of 3 child-like, authentic-looking crayon scribbles for Procreate on iPad. Designed to have an organic real-world feel, the lines have tons of character and are indistinguishable from real scribbles on paper. great for children's books and design!
Crayon Scribbles includes:
Crayon Scribbles 1 - This is a very loose, direction-changing scribble pattern, great for layering colors (which I highly recommend).
Crayon Scribbles 2 - This one is a bit more dense and 'whispy' looking, great for creating an overall crayon 'texture'.
Crayon Scribbles 3 - This one is unique as it has straight lines, which when painted in have a cross-hatched feeling to them.
Watercolor Swatches, is a set of 5 free Procreate color swatches sampled directly from real, high-quality watercolor gradients.
Digital color is amazing, but it can be challenging to know exactly how colors would mingle and react to each other in real life. This is where sampled color palettes come in super handy!
Color is highly psychological, and transitions don't happen perfectly smooth like we expect them to. Across a real gradient, saturation can increase/decrease, lightness and hue too, completely variable every step of the way. With these sampled palettes, you can take the guesswork out of the equation.
These color swatches pair beautifully with Tip Top Watercolor, as you might expect :)
Watercolor Swatches includes:
Lavender and Red - Soft, delicate purples transition to a warm red.
Blue and Yellow - Warm, almost cerulean blue transitioning through warm and cool greens to arrive at a soft yellow.
Rose and Sand - A deep, rich red transitioning through light warm pinks to gentle sand color.
Cyan and Orange - Ocean colors, a greenish-blue transitioning to warm sand orange.
Blue and Green - Vibrant, warm and cool greens.
Creamiscle - Kind of a bonus, rich red red transitioning through pinks and yellow to deep orange.
I started with a base layer of of the darkest blue, and built up several layers with different grunge brushes and colors. The trick to getting rich combinations of color is layer layer layer! I even sometimes use actual separate layers, alpha lock them, and use a soft watercolor brush to color the brush strokes with multiple hues.
