Using brush-on style Geometric brushes like these is not the same as using normal brushes. Our brush-on style brushes need to be used correctly, or you could find issues with reduced quality and overall usefulness. 

How to use for best results / Geometric Brush tips

Recommended canvas size

The recommended canvas size for these brushes is a massive 6000 x 6000pixels. This is because using these brushes at smaller scale can vastly decrease the quality of them. You will notice when you reduce the size of any of the brushes, it can affect quality. Read below for ways to counteract this.

*Tip! It is always better to start a new layer before using the brushes. This makes designs much easier to move around, manipulate, warp or erase.

Resizing Brushes

You may find that when you reduce the size of a brush, it reduces the quality. Or you want to reduce the size of the brush, but not the actual design. Sometimes it is just not as straightforward to use the usual sliding scale to adjust the size of a geometric brush. You can however use a couple of settings within the brush to adjust it to how you want it, without affecting the quality. 

There are three main settings that will help you. The main one is the 'Scale' setting, which you can find in the 'Grain Menu.' Here:

 

Increasing the scale will make the design larger within the confines of the brush tip size. Adjusting the maximum size setting in the 'Properties' menu below will enable you to correct the proportions to your liking. You can mainly work with the 'Maximum size' setting to get the correct sizing you are after:

 

You may need to go between the two settings to find the size combination that works whilst keeping the quality from reducing. 

Why some brushes appear 'stretched' and how to fix it.

You will have noticed that some designs look slightly stretched. Unfortunately this is completely unavoidable within Procreate but very fixable. The reason? To create brushes you need to make a perfectly square stamp as a base image - this is not possible with original designs made on an isometric grid (this is basically a grid made of hexagons fitting together), you cannot fit a 6 sided hexagon into a perfect square without needing to squash it slightly:

If the original design was made with a square grid, they will not appear stretched. 

The main way to fix this is to use the brush on its own layer, and select the area to adjust the sizings. Here is a short video on how to do a quick fix for stretched brushes:

 

Don’t forget to add a new layer before using the brush.

I realise this isn’t ideal, but it is the only way these specific designs can be created as brushes (in Procreate), so it’s either this, or nothing at all. Clip Studio Paint app has a feature that prevents this and corrects the brush - so you could always scrap Procreate and download Clip Studio... (If you are like me, I much prefer Procreate though.)

Tip! Make sure your canvas is straight before applying the brushes. A canvas that is on an angle can distort the design. 

Inverting Brushes

If you have recently updated Procreate and you are wondering how to invert brushes, here is the answer:

For 'brush-on' style brushes:

For stamp style brushes, you will need to be in the 'Shape' menu instead of 'Grain':
