Micron-like brush for procreate?



  • I’ve been using procreate for years now. I’ve searched far and wide for a brush that emulates a micron pen or really any technical pen. The technical pen brushes I’ve used before just don’t feel right. Their movement never feels right and the lines lack the subtle textures of a technical pen. So this is my last ditch effort, have any of you found something similar to a micron on procreate?

    I used to regularly used a Micron pen to ink my renderings before scanning them into digital format to add color and such. I don't do that very much anymore, but finding a good substitute for my inking hasn't been that much of an issue. There are many MANY folks out there that specifically put out a variety of different Inking brushes that have a myriad of different looks...

    One thing that I can suggest is to save a brush that is similar to what you're interested in on your desktop. Change the file extension from .brush to .zip . Then open the zip file. This should allow you access to the brush's tip shape or soemtimes the grain, which you can then share to your iPad again and use to create your own brushes (well, it works for me on my Mac most of the time, but sometimes it doesn't). You might be able to mix and match something with a bit of adjusting in the Brush Studio to have the exact qualities you'd like... Just a thought...
