Elder Sketcherman Procreate Customised Brush

Georg, an amazing Procreate brush creator, and designer at “Gde Trafic?”, has create a pencil brush that is named after a friend of mine, Robsketcherman. The brush is called Elder Sketcherman, that I have just began to test. Thanks to Rob’s recommendation on this awesome brush. So far I have done 2 “serious” drawings with it on my iPad Pro. Here they are: img_0821-3707735 To me, it has all the light touches of a pencil yet it offers a good range of tonal qualities of a very soft charcoal pencil, minuses all the smudges. It is textured to emulate the texture of a smooth newsprint too or the likes, so marks don’t look too digital. img_0822-3637155 It delivers thin and thick lines at the same time, as well as the tilt function of the Apple Pencil to give a light broad stroke just like a charcoal stick, depending of the pencil pressure, but not so sensitive that it will give a thick black line. This part is my favourite. I like how it is unpredictable as well. Maybe I have not fully understand the functions of the brush yet, but so far, I have no complain. Honestly, my interest in using the iPad Pro and Procreate to sketch began to wane late last year, just after I did a workshop with Apple for “Today at Apple” event. The reason was, I am starting to feel a little bored with the brushes presets that Procreate provide. Even though I bought a customised brush named “Flourish”, it is not giving me the sensitivity that I am looking for. On the non-digital side of things, I have been using Pentel Brush Pen and Hero Fude fountain pen a lot. These give me a lot more variety of lines and the potential is pretty endless. I need something like that from Procreate. So far, the Elder Sketcherman pencil brush is satisfying my palate more than anything else. In fact I have bought Georg’s Megapack that comes with tons of nice brushes. I have tested them all out yet but I am quite sure I will find something else that I like. Here’s the link to his brushes.



Sadly I have yet to find something that works like the Pencil Brush pen and my hero fountain pen. Maybe I should learn how to create a procreate brush from scratch. I just need time.
