Common Questions

How can I import brushes into Procreate?

The first thing you’ll need to do to import new brushes into Procreate is download them of course. Individual brushes come as .brush files and full brushpacks as .brushset files. When importing brushes into Procreate, make sure the file is either a .brush or .brushset file.

Unzipping

When you download Procreate brushes or brush sets, it might be that you get a .zip file. Since you cannot import .zip files directly into Procreate, you’ll have to extract the files first. If you’re working on a PC or Mac, you can unzip the files before transferring them to your iPad, but if you are working on an iPad alone, you’ll have to use an unzip app to extract the files. You can use an app like Winzip or Zip Browser for this. Once you have unzipped .brush and .brushset files on your iPad, you’re ready to go and import them into Procreate.

NOTE: If you get a bunch of folders and small files after unzipping, then the file wasn’t meant to be unzipped. Something went wrong and you might need to download the set or brush using another browser for instance or rename the .zip file to .brushset for instance

Multiple ways to import

There are multiple ways to import brushes into Procreate. If one way isn’t working for you, please try another method. Sometimes it can help to re-download a brush or set, to use another browser (like Chrome or Safari) or to clear your browser cache.

Import through Brush Library

The first way to import brushes into Procreate is by following these steps (make sure you have the .brush or .brushset file on your device)
  • Open a (blank) canvas
  • Select the brush tab
  • You’ll see a + in the upper right corner, click it
  • Select import in the upper right corner of the Brush Studio
  • Navigate to the location where you saved the .brush or .brushset file
It’ll take a few seconds for the brushes to import. If you have imported a full brush set, then you’ll find it at the top in the Brush Library. If you have imported an individual brush then you’ll find it all the way at the bottom under Imported.

Import with Secondary Window

Another way to import brushes is by opening a secondary window on your iPad and dragging the brush file onto Procreate.
  • Open a (blank) canvas
  • Open a secondary window by gently swiping upward from the bottom of your screen. Drag the folder app to one side of your screen
  • In this secondary window, navigate to the location of the .brushset
  • Open the brush menu in Procreate
  • Drag the .brush or .brushset file onto the Brush Library, you’ll see a green + appear
  • Just drop it to let Procreate import your new brush set!

Import from your local folder

An even easier way is to just open your local folders, locate the .brushset file and tap it. It’ll automatically import the new brush or brush set to Procreate! Again, you’ll find individual brushes in the imported folder at the bottom in the Brush Library and full sets at the top.

Importing from Google Drive or Dropbox

You can also import files straight from an app like Google Drive.
  • Locate the .brushset file in Google Drive
  • Tap the three little dots
  • Select Open in
  • Navigate to Copy to Procreate (if it doesn’t show up, try selecting More)
  • Tada! Your new brush set is imported into the Procreate app
The same thing can be done with Dropbox, navigate to the .brushset file, tap the three little dots, select export and navigate to Copy to Procreate. Easy as that!

Import right after downloading

When downloading a set through a Google Drive link (I often use Google Drive links), you can import it straight to Procreate. When you are downloading a big brush pack, you’ll get this message first.

You can tap download anyway.
In the next screen you’ll get the option to import the set straight in Procreate.

How can I get the color palettes for the You Can Draw This tutorials?

You can find a link to download my color palettes in the description of my You Can Draw This videos, you can access the description area by clicking the little arrow underneath the video (on the right side) when you are on a mobile device. If you are on a desktop, you’ll just have to click ‘show more’. The link will bring you to a public Patreon post and at the bottom of that post you’ll see a .swatches file. Click that to start the download. Can’t see it? Refresh the page or use a different browser like Chrome.

How much does Patreon cost?

At Patreon I offer different tiers, only the $10 and $15 tiers give access to video tutorials.
The $10 tier gives access to the tutorials of the current month and previous three months and the $15 tier gives access to all content I have ever shared at Patreon.

I have subscribed to the treasure chest, but I still haven’t received a link?

If you haven’t received the email to open the treasure chest then please be sure to check your spam folder or use the search function in your email inbox, the subject line of the email is ‘Open your Treasure Chest!’

It could also be that the email has been delayed, so please be patient.

If you have unsubscribed from the newsletter and re-subscribed recently, then you won’t be getting a new welcoming mail. Just hold on and check the weekly newsletter that gets sent every Friday. A link to the treasure chest is in every single newsletter email.

Why do my colors look different than yours?

Don’t worry if your colors look a bit different than mine. Colors can look a bit different on various devices, but also keep in mind that I’m recording my drawing with a camera and that the recording gets edited.
Do make sure to use the same color profile as I’m using, that’s sRGB IEC61966-2.1.

You can set the color profile when creating a custom canvas. You can check this short video to see how to do that.
