About This Class


In this class, you'll learn how to create Procreate texture brushes using some paper, ink, and found objects that you probably already have at home!


I’ve gotten so many requests from artists and designers around the world who want to see how I create my texture brushes, so I wanted to show you this super quick process that you can do in under 30 minutes.

First I’ll show you how I create my textures from start to finish, and talk about some found objects and techniques that you can use to create dynamic textures that give your work realistic scuffs, scrapes, speckles, splatters, and scratches.


Then we’ll talk about some easy ways to turn your paper textures into digital images, and look at how to turn the texture into a brush shape.

Next we’ll create a brush and test it out on some finished artwork to turn a flat image into a gritty composition with tons of variation.


We’ll look at a few ways to adjust your brush shapes and brush dynamics so you can achieve the exact brush you want to make.

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the apple pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.  We’ll also be using some ink and found objects to create our textures. If you don’t have any ink lying around, you can just break open a gel pen to get the ink out.

So let’s get started!
