Tip Top Ballpoint Pens is a set of super fun and expressive Ballpoint pen brushes for Procreate! These are absolutely wonderful for creating expressive, natural-looking sketches and illustrations with that ballpoint feel.
We analyzed REAL strokes made with different ballpoint pens and were able to re-create the magic inside of Procreate! The brushes are pressure sensitive, and react in many different ways to speed and pressure. We also tossed in a few real scribble marks as a bonus :-), which can really save your forearms!
Check out the video at the top for a live demonstration of the brushes! Here's a detail shot of the artwork:
Included are 12 brushes:
7x Pressure-sensitive Ink brushes: Each brush has unique properties, with names such as "Super Low Ink", "Fat Boy", "Split Dry", "Classic Rollerball" and more.
5x Scribble brushes: These come in really handy when you need to fill large areas with pen! All while keeping a natural, realistic 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.
