Real Ink


This is Real Ink, a collection of grungy, gritty, authentic, REAL ink transfers, smears, and textures for both Procreate and Affinity Photo/Designer (purchased separately). A staple of graphic designers and illustrators for decades, we utilized dozens of techniques to give you as much variety as possible. You can now add an immense wealth of character and professionalism to your Procreate projects with Real Ink.

For Procreate: Comes with 30 individual brushes! Import seamlessly as one brush set file!

For Affinity Photo/Designer: The same content as Real Ink Procreate, but condensed into 6 MEGA BRUSHES!

Whats a MEGA BRUSH? Affinity designer has an amazing feature allowing you to combine multiple marks into a single stroke for ultimate natural feel and look. So its all 30 individual marks condensed down into 6 seamless brush experiences. It's really something!

As usual, we always use the highest quality materials. After scanning in SUPER high resolution, we carefully separated the marks from the paper with the utmost care for preserving the detailed nuance in each image.

Here is an example of combining some of the marks to create a custom texture:


Here are some examples of individual brushes. You can drag your finger/stylus (they are pressure sensitive to control size, you can get some great results that way) on the screen to create a unique shape for each brush, or can simply tap to apply the mark.

Remember, variety is key! Use a different brush every couple of strokes/taps, and be rewarded with your own unique creation :-)


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.
