Tip Top Color Pencils are the first truly realistic collection of Color Pencil brushes for Procreate! These have been designed with color in mind, and every effort has gone into making sure they layer well, and the colors behave like they do in real life. They pair beautifully with our Master Color and Toon Color swatch collections.
This collection is pretty much all you need if you're doing illustrations and want that "color pencil look" :-) and includes 16 brushes!
Color Pencils includes:
Real Marks: Based on our Color Pencil Scribbles freebie, we took it to the next level and did a bunch more! these are great for adding in as accents to really sell the color pencil look.
Line Brushes and Shaders: These are very special, and we absolutely love these pencil brushes! You can turn the Apple Pencil on its side and gently glaze in layers of shading of real, sampled color pencil texture. Each brush has a different quality of line - for example the "hard shader" and "soft shader" are both design for gradually building up layers of color, retaining that special texture. But the "hard shader" has more holes in, giving it a harder lead look.
You'll need Procreate 4 to take advantage of all the brush features, and preferably an Apple Pencil for the pressure sensitive brushes.
Procreate 4 is here, and its amazing! You can now install a LOT of brushes at once using the new Files app in iOS 11. We recommend backing up your purchase using an iCloud account (its free), or syncing them to Files with iTunes.
First things first... USE SAFARI on iPad!
Also make sure you open the link in the full Safari app (it must be Safari, no other browser will work), as the side-loaded one gmail/other email apps use won’t work.
Tip Top Brush sets use the new "Brushset" file format made available in Procreate 4.2+. This is great! You can now load brushes with one single file. Once you've completed your purchase, select the blue button "access digital content" and you will be presented with a list of your purchased brush sets.
If it ends in *.brushset, it is the file you want (color swatches go in the swatches menu.)
1. Using Safari on iPad, tap the file and wait for it download (might take a few minutes if you have a slow collection, the brushes often use high resolution textures). Most sets are around 30MB, but it tells you next to the file name. Please make sure once you click the brush file name you give it long enough to download, especially if you have a slower internet connection. Once you click the link it will begin loading another page, but it won’t look like much is happening until it’s done.
2. Now select "Open in Procreate". Done! The set can be found as a new group in the brushes menu.
