9 – Procreate Pencil Case

This set is a great way to start all your creative projects. The idea was to recreate that old pencil case you've had in your room or backpack for years, filled with pens and pencils in various states of repair.

The unsharpened pencil, the stubbed fine liner or that inky marker that's been used way too many times. I wanted to build a set of brushes that will give you all the tools you need to start creating excellent illustrations, lettering and everything in between.

There's hopefully something for everyone in here. I've tried to create a wide range of lining brushes that go from silky smooth to downright straggly and bumpy, as well as a collection of grainy shaders and stipplers.

There are 34 brushes in the pencil case spread across a range of styles and uses.
