With traditional materials, stippling can be really slow and tedious as you draw every single dot individually. With Procreate, stippling can be SO much faster when you have the right brushes.
Procreate stippling brushes can lay down a lot of dots at once, saving you the headache of drawing every dot individually in your piece of art.
Also, Procreate stippling brushes always lay down dots of the same size. No more worrying that you’ll put too much pressure on your pen and end up with a bigger dot than the others.
Lastly, let’s talk about the best part. Even though they’re used digitally with Procreate, these stippling brushes don’t look fake and manufactured. You’ll notice that every stippling brush we talk about looks VERY natural.
Achieving a natural look is something that Procreate excels at. It’s also something that Procreate brush creators care a lot about. You’ll be blown away by how much these Procreate stippling brushes resemble traditional stippling.
Stippling is DEFINITELY an area where technology shines. Being able to have uniform dots that are equally spaced and laid down in large quantities is a game changer. That’s why, if you’re interested in stippling, you’ll love this article.
We’re diving into all of the best Procreate stippling brushes and stippling brush packs you can use to create quick, easy, and beautiful stippling art in Procreate.
Some of these stippling brushes and brush packs are paid (and totally worth the money), but some are absolutely free! Let’s get started.
1. Procreate Stippling Brushes Kit
If you want to start stippling in Procreate, don’t just grab one brush and call it a day. Even though it seems like you would only need one, straightforward stippling brush that’s a collection of dots, you’d be missing out.
In reality, there are SO many different types of stippling brushes that will give you different sized dots at varying densities. This is a MUST if you want to create dynamic stippling art with all of the freedoms to create the effects you’re looking for.
Well, this Procreate Stippling Brushes Kit will meet all of your stippling needs. It comes with 15 Procreate stippling brushes with different types and numbers of dots.
Some are high density and great for darker areas of shading, while others are more spaced out and great for areas closer to your light source.
I put this stippling pack first because you could purchase it, stop reading here, and be set with all of your stippling needs. These 15 brushes make up a comprehensive stippling collection that gives you more than enough choices for your art.
2. Hand Stippling for Procreate
What I like about this pack of Procreate stippling brushes is that they’re specifically designed to work with pressure sensitivity. For example, some of the brushes have dots that become larger with more pressure.
There’s no doubt that these brushes are unique and really fun to use. With the pressure sensitivity, it’s almost like having multiple brushes in one.
The Hand Stippling for Procreate set comes with 13 brushes with fun names. Here’s what you’ll get:
