I created a brush using some newspaper print. I thought it would make an interesting background texture to illustrations. Procreate already has some great brushes and textures to make your own brushes, but it was super fun to try out my own ideas.
I love playing with calligraphy in Procreate but sometimes find the angles of some brushes don't suit me personally, so it was great to have a go at creating my own and get the brushes to behave the way I wanted. It was fun to take it all a step further and add my own textures, I really liked the effect the dot pattern gave, like a photographic halftone.
