The Charcoal Shader pack includes 16 custom made brushes with unique brush shapes and textures. The Charcoal Shaders are best for achieving smooth blending, seamless value gradations, and authentic texture. They’re also great for filling in large areas of shading efficiently. All brushes use the Apple Pencil’s tilt capability so you can get realistic side shading too.
As someone who uses a tortillon/blending stump traditionally, I couldn’t find digital brushes that achieved the same smooth effect I wanted and still felt real like charcoal/graphite… so I created my own. These are nicely complemented by the default pencil brushes in Procreate.
