John Singer Sargent is a master Realist painter from the era of Impressionism and his work has been an inspiration to me for a long time. I enjoy painting in his style so I handcrafted brushes for Procreate that help achieve the same look.
The Sargent’s Oils pack features 14 custom brushes with realistic brush shapes and a seamless fabric canvas texture. Most brush tips were created with actual paint brushes—I painted strokes on canvas and then scanned them in at a high resolution. All brushes feature the same fabric canvas texture for consistency, like you’re working on the same canvas no matter which tool you use. The canvas texture is similar in appearance to the canvases that Sargent used.
A short description of each brush is in the product images to help you get a feel for how the tools can be used. All master studies I painted in the preview images were created using only brushes in the pack.
This product is only compatible with Procreate 4+.
UPDATE 03/24/19: I did not expect this pack to blow up as fast as it did, thank you so much for your support! I’ve added two new streaky brushes to the pack that are great for brushwork & texture.The .brushset file now includes the new brushes.
Tag me @sadielewski on Instagram or Twitter, I’d love to see your work using the brushes!
Having trouble unzipping the file on your iPad?
Step 1: On your iPad, download the free app “Unzip” from the Apple App Store.
Step 2: Once the app finishes installing, download the brush file from Creative Market.
Step 3: Select the option “Open in Unzip” (because your iPad will ask how you want to open the zip file right after you download it).
Step 4: It will take you to the Unzip app. Select the zip file. It will create a folder with the same name, basically unzipping it for you.
Step 5: Select the new folder which will open it.
Step 6: Click on the ‘i’ button with the circle around it on the right-hand side next to the file name.
Step 7: A menu will pop up. Click “Send”.
Step 8: Select “Open in Procreate”.
Step 9: It will then switch your screen to Procreate. Procreate will say “Importing”. Once you see the checkmark it’s completed, and the brush set will appear at the top of your brush library.
