As a thank you for the support I'm getting on my Drawing Box – Procreate Brushes pack, I decided to release this free ballpoint pen! It behaves like a real pen so you have to build up to your darks with pen pressure and hatching.
A couple tips for getting the most realistic results:
1. Use the brush at smaller sizes, like a real pen tip.
2. Work on the same layer to take advantage of the multiply + luminescent brush blending mode. If you need to go over a dark color with a lighter color, create a new layer.
This product is only compatible with Procreate 4 and above.
Work created using Ballpoint Pen:
Tag me @sadielewski or use #slewbrush on Instagram or Twitter, I'd love to see your work using the brushes!
Do Procreate 4 brushes work in Procreate 5?
Absolutely! Procreate brushes are backwards compatible (meaning a new version will support brushes from previous versions), and the brushes function exactly the same in Procreate 5.
How do I install Procreate brushes?
Once you receive your order confirmation email, select the View Order button within the email which will open Safari. Select the button Access Digital Content. Select the file you would like to download, and your iPad will prompt you to download the file. Select Download. The download will then save to your iPad. Once it finishes downloading, select the downloads button within Safari. It’s the down arrow with the circle around it on the top right side of your screen. Select the file you just downloaded. It will automatically open Procreate and install the file (both .brush and .brushset files) for you.
Can I use the brushes commercially and for any end product?
Yes, you can use them commercially for any end use. However, do not resell or redistribute the brushes.
