Core "Photoshop-Like" Brush Set For Procreate


A set of 25 custom, "core painting" brushes I've made for Procreate in order to mimic my painting workflow from Photoshop. Updated June 2019 with two new brushes, and tested in Procreate 4.3.x. If you like these brushes, you might like some of my other brushes too!

NOTE: I've designed these brushes for working on the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil (or comparable pressure-sensitive stylus). They haven't been tested for non-pressure-sensitive work, or for working on a smaller iPhone screen. 


Brushes include:

MM Marker - my go-to for blocking in strong, crisp shapes with rough energy. 

MM Marker Grit - a variant marker with a grit texture.

MM Marker II - another marker variant.

MM Lines - my default, basic brush for thin lines & details

MM Flat - often used for painting terrain details in perspective.

MM Vert - great for structures and quick thumbnails (inspired by Jama Jurabaev's workflow.)

MM Block Hard - I use this for blocking in shapes, especially when working in a more lasso / flat style. Also useful for quickly pushing paint around as a Smudge tool

MM Block Rough - for blocking in with a bit more texture and not-quite-opaque fill.

MM Square - my default chalk-like brush for blocking and erasing.

MM Square Grit - a variant chalk brush with added grit.

MM Soft - a custom airbrush that puts down much softer, slower paint.

MM Bristly - for a gouache-like effect and more textured paint coverage.

MM Fan - spaced out vertical bars with grit, I often use this for foliage.

MM Smudger - my default brush for soft blending with the Smudge tool.

MM Smudge Rake - a hard rake-like shape for quickly pushing paint around with the Smudge tool (inspired by Jama Jurabaev's workflow.)

MM Smudge Hard - a hard geometric shape for pushing paint around.

MM Speckle - great utility brush for a variety of speckle effects / highlights.

MM Grit - a gritty scatter-brush for applying texture or rough smudging.

MM Scatter - a very "noisy" brush for applying chaotic shapes, or roughing-up edges with the Smudge tool.

MM Cloudy - for laying down interesting areas of fog / clouds / smoke / mist.

Bonus Brushes:

MM Diag - applies abstract geometric shapes in a diagonal pattern. Can also create interesting results when used with the Smudge tool.

MM Geo - applies a scattering of abstract rectangular geometric shapes.

MM Birbs - put some low-poly, abstract birds on it!

MM Tris - an abstract, triangular scatter brush. Good for energetic polygonal notes.

MM Diamonds - applies a scattering of abstract rough diamond shapes.

Release Notes

- Added 2 brushes: MM Block Hard, MM Block Rough.
- Added "MM Core Brush Set.brushset" file, using Procreate's new .brushset format so that you can import the whole set (instead of each brush individually.)
