Real Ink


This is Real Ink, a collection of grungy, gritty, authentic, REAL ink transfers, smears, and textures for Procreate. 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.

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

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 5 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 that gmail/other email apps use won’t work.

Note: Brush files end in *.brushset 

Once you click the file name/download button, a blue arrow in a circle should appear in the top right corner of Safari. This is the "downloads" area. Tap this icon and you should see your download appear in a list like so:

Simply tap the file and it should automatically open in Procreate. Depending on if you've performed this before, it may ask you what you want to do with the file after tapping it, in which case you would simply find the Procreate icon and send it there.
