The Urban Sketching set was specially handcrafted for artists who participate in urban sketching—the act of observational drawing and documenting your day-to-day life. No matter your preferred subject or location, whether that be the city or the zoo or your living room, urban sketching is something everyone can do and the iPad is the perfect tool to use. I created these brushes to mimic traditional tools that on-location sketchers use and love. So if you're an artist who enjoys sketching anything, this set is for you!
Featuring 17 custom brushes in a variety of realistic tools including pencils, inks, pens, and watercolors. Every texture used is seamless to ensure perfect brush strokes every time.
This product is only compatible with Procreate 4+.

Why buy Procreate brushes?
Your art supplies—both digital and traditional—are super important.
I used Prismacolor pencils for most of my life. They were the only pencils I had ever used and they were within my budget. But eventually I found myself struggling to get the pencils to do what I wanted them to do. The wax bloom would drive me crazy and the blending wasn’t smooth. It was frustrating and sometimes I felt like quitting because my tool was working against me (and then I would blame myself for being a bad artist).
Recently I researched better pencils. I found the Caran d’Ache Luminance Colored Pencils Set for a whopping $200. I had to do some mental gymnastics to justify the purchase. “Okay Sadie you’re going to use these EVERY DAY to make them worth it,” I told myself. I knew the fancy pencils wouldn’t make me a better artist, but they made the process of creating art a million times more enjoyable for me and in turn I created work I was happier with. The pencils changed the way I worked for the better and oh were they worth it.
Digital is no exception. I started creating my own Procreate brushes to improve my workflow and make digital art more enjoyable. I love the look and authenticity of traditional mediums so I designed my brushes to emulate quality traditional mediums. My brushes use a variety of rich, high resolution textures. They're handmade with real mediums and a scanner. They are the brushes I love and use in my professional work, and I hope you love them too.
