Realistic Watercolor Calligraphy Brush for ProCreate

April 3, 2017

I’m so excited to finally share with you that I created a realistic watercolor calligraphy brush for ProCreate app! Just as a note, I have literally been trying to create this for months off and on, but just never quite had it right. A few nights ago I took yet another stab at achieving the watercolor look..and I think I finally have it.  My goal was to try and get it to look as realistic as possible (especially when doing calligraphy) as it has such great variation in color/opacity in real life.

Well, this one is pretty darn close (am I right)!? The best part is that it even acts very similar to a real watercolor brush by fading out of ‘ink/paint’ if you keep writing. So when you lift up you apple pencil and then re-apply pressure to continue writing, it’s dark again (as if you are apply new paint). Feel free to check out the video below!
