    I've just started and have no idea what I'm doing. But I'm pretty sure I want more brushes. Once I have them I'll figure out what to do with them. ;)

    I have it, and it sure is nice, but I don't use it. If only I could draw or paint...

    Affinity Designer is my main weapon of choice.

    I would love some nice textured watercolour packs, gouache, or acrylics.

    I've just got Procreate last month and I think I have too many brushes at the moment. I would definitely love to see colour swatches and worksheets bundles for Procreate! :)

    I do. I've had it for a while, though I'm pretty poor at drawing/painting - I use it more for messing around with typography a lá @Ian Barnard :)

    I'm still learning to use it, and just messing around right now trying to get comfortable with it.

    I was eyeing these from Stefan Kunz. https://www.typoxphoto.com/shop1/paintmarkers

    I would love to but my iPad is too old I think. I have one on order at work but it's taking FOREVER for them to get it for me for some reason. (like it's been over 6 months!) Maybe if that ever comes in I can try Procreate.

    My pc has been acting up for the last year or so, but I have been having so much fun with ProCreate that I barely ever use Photoshop and don't mind too much that my computer is slow. I love it, the only thing that makes me a bit crazy is the layer limitations but now that symmetry, clipping masks and the shapes options have rolled out I have really transitioned over to it. I use it for photo manips, making art journal pages, some graphic design stuff, lettering, sketching and painting portraits etc.

    I think brushes would be great, I am on the lookout for good painterly style ones. Also maybe template files that could be layered files that include a watercolor paper texture or canvas texture, chalkboard texture etc...something like that.

    I have been going through all of my Photoshop brush packs that include .png versions and converting them one at a time to ProCreate brushes...it takes forever and is super dull, so I definitely would love more brushes.

    Yes, I just recently started using it because I got a new iPad (not a Pro - just the regular 6th gen) and was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is compatible with the Apple pencil! (The first non-pro iPad which is). So I got an Apple pencil for Christmas :smile: I'm still getting the hang of it but thankfully I already had a few brushes and packs to test out in it from previous DC bundles and freebies from various sites.

    I am loving the new Procreate section of the marketplace! Currently "building a bundle" in my cart. (And finding it hard to stop, lol).

    I would love to see some of these in the DC marketplace or bundles, because it is my preferred place to buy from where possible (I found these through CM but have linked to their main sites instead):

    Thank you for all the lovely suggestions!

    I am super partial to well designed textures. I think the basic inking and sketching brushes that come with Procreate are the workhorses but I don’t use much else that comes with the program. Custom made brushes that have really great textures are my jam - I’ve been using a lot of gouache and stipple brushes lately. I also really like tools that help with layout like grids and builders. :)

  • This is so good to know guys thank you all so much for the feedback ❤️
