The Retro MaxPack - Brushes for Procreate

197 ratings

The Retro MaxPack is a set of brushes compatible only with Procreate 5+

Enjoy 70 of the most uncanny digital brushes you've ever experienced with this eclectic mix of nostalgic brushes. The collection is a celebration of natural texture, with an inspiring variety including pencils, inks, pastels, a host of new gouache brushes, sponges, and some versatile grungy texture brushes. While this pack will no doubt enable you to paint in the style of your favorite 50s style editorials, animation artists, or timeless picture books, it will also be the perfect set of brushes for concept artists looking for loose, expressive marks and heavy texture. For the gouache enthusiast who already owns and loves the Gouache MaxPack, this set expands on it and explores another more adventurous side of the medium; a little rougher, less polished, and celebrating its natural imperfections. Subtle color variation and sophisticated transparency effects make these the most realistic gouache brushes available anywhere. The Gouache Natural family is buttery smooth, with Natural Wash and Natural Thin acting as evolutions of my Watercolor brushes. The namesake Gouache Retro family is my love letter to Mary Blair. These are thick and bold with strong pebbly texture on the edges. The fan-requested Photocopy brushes are very aggressively textured yet delicate tools inspired by mid-century animation backgrounds. Liner Strong and Stipples work together to create clean graphic linework and stippled shading you might see in anything from bold traditional tattoos to mid-century illustrations. The warm, familiar textures in the pastels are absolutely irresistible and capable of soft, dreamy marks or bold, aggressive toothy strokes. There’s a host of texture-focused brushes and Sponges that are ideal for foliage, rocky landscapes, or for adding a bit of color breakup to some nice clean flats in a lasso selection based graphic workflow. And because no pack would be complete without some fun sketching tools, I’ve included 2 new atelier-style pencils, a blending stump smudge brush, and the Vis Dev Sketch for clean, production-ready design work.

3 Versatile Sketch Brushes

Pastels and gouache work best when used on beautiful toned papers, and I've got you covered with my Paper Pack. And, if you want the perfect complement to the washes in this pack, The Watercolor MaxPack is what you need.
