Hi! Today I present to you a list of Fur brushes for Procreate – Free, and Premium!
Last time I gathered a list of Ink brushes to Procreate, and while looking through the internet I found some amazing brushes that I think will help you to draw fur and hair. I focused here mostly on animal fur brushes, and plan to create a separate list, solely dedicated to procreate hair brushes, in the future (I will link it here when it will be ready!)
I hope this list will help you to save some time on drawing fur and enjoy the process of painting your illustration even more – right below you can find the quick list with direct links, and a little further I gathered a detailed list with brushes’ descriptions and specifications.
The sets are made specifically for the Procreate app, but a few of them have variations that work in Photoshop and other graphic software – I added direct links to these sets in “software compatibility” details.
Many of these sets were created by artists for themselves and later made available to download and use by other fellow artists.
I always try to link to the artist’s portfolio/social media page, so if you have some free time and like a certain brush set – please check out also the artist’s websites! You can see some of their brushes in action, and some of these artists create even video tutorials on how to paint in Procreate.
Please remember to give them a “thumb up” or leave a comment under the artist’s creations to show them an appreciation for their work, thank you!

Here’s a free pack of brushes created by Witherlings. They were originally created for photoshop (they also work in GIMP), but later remade them to work in Procreate.
These brushes were created in 2011, but still a lot people download them and leave positive comments (on Deviantart).
Witherlings published also a different, wildlife brush pack(These brushes are free for use in your personal or commercial artwork) where you can also download fur brushes – however, these are not saved in .brushset format. You may need to tweak them to achieve the desired effect.
If you have any questions, I suggest you to look at the comment section on Deviantart, you might find there answers from other artists or some tips on how to use these brushes, or even files remade to work with other graphic software.
File Types Included: .BRUSHSET Software compatibility: Procreate 5x or later
Another brush pack created by Lisa Bardot! I mention her brushes also in other lists on this blog – she’s an author of various brush packs, tutorials, and freebies (available on her website), including these FREE fur brushes!
This pack includes 17 brushes that you can use to create 5 unique fur textures. If you just started using iPad and Procreate, and are not sure how to use the software, no worries – Lisa has created a Skillshare course where she shows How to Draw Fur in Procreate with Custom and Built-In Brushes.
Here’s one of her Procreate tutorials on Youtube, you can take a look at some brushes from this brush pack:
I definitely recommend you to check out the rest of Lisa’s channel, it’s a gold mine of amazing procreate tutorials!

*This pack doesn’t contain Photoshop or Affinity files, they are available to purchase in separate sets, linked above.
I already admire Eldar Zakirov aka Ldarro for his Ink brushes and amazing illustrations. Luckily, he decided to share other brush packs with us, including fur brushes, which he developed over a few years and uses to create his professional artworks.
These brushes are used by the artist to speed up the process and were initially created for Photoshop. Later they were adapted to work in Procreate and Affinity.
In the pack, you will find 28 brushes + PDF file containing some tips. As this brush pack was created to meet Ldarro’s specific needs, you may need to read the tips first in order to be able to achieve your desired effects or tweak the brush settings a little bit.
Ps. If you are curious about Ldarro’s artworks, you can take a look at his portfolio!
A brush pack, created by Xrosecookie and published on Deviantart. There are 4 brushes in the pack – not much, but they are free and people love them 🙂
If you have any problems with them, check out the comment section – you may find your answer there (and a link to direct download if you have problems with Deviantart).
Ps. Watch out, some people steal free brushes and post them on etsy to sell – the same happened with this brush pack. You can download this pack for free from Xrosecookie’s on Deviantart (you need to register/be logged in to download it).
Painting various realistic fur will be much easier thanks to this set. Art with Flo created a set of diverse fur brushes, you will find here procreate brushes for short fur, long fur, rough fur, fuzzy fur and more. There are 14 brushes in total, many people use them all to draw human hair.
Some people pointed out that they have a problem that their brush doesn’t follow their stroke. If that’s the case, you may need to change your brush settings – these fur brushes have been designed so that the fur will follow the direction of your brush strokes.
Anyway, if you have any problems or questions about this set, just let Art with Flo know, she is ready to help.
Ps. Art with Flo runs a YouTube channel and a website ( you can download some freebies there) – check them out!
You can download a free fur brush sample on her gumroad.
Here’s a beautiful pack of 32 fur brushes by Mel!
You will find here such brushes as “kitten plume”, “dirty dog”, “fluffy tail”, and even “fleece” and “duckling”.
This pack was created mostly with animals in mind but can be used to draw people’s hair too.
You can use these brushes to smudge as well as paint, and build up layer by layer. Tip from Mel – Try out layer blends to give your work real depth of colour and richness. Overlay works well.
Mel began putting sets of photoshop brushes which she had produced during various personal design projects on DeviantArt, and later on her website. Besides procreate brushes, she created also Photoshop, Illustrator brushes, and clipart drawings (png and vector).
She also published on her website some stuff that you can download for free – so check out her site melsbrushes.co.uk 🙂
Loyalty Art specializes in creating procreate brushes and stamps, including realistic animal fur brushes. There are 30 of them, a part of these brushes are better for painting the base, the rest will help you to quickly add the details.
You can get this pack via Etsy – all purchases are available automatically after your payment ( Etsy app doesn’t offer download files, so if you want to download anything to your mobile device, you need to use your browser and log in your etsy account).
Loyalty art also offers “Curls and waves” hair brushes (you will find there dreadlock brushes too) and even a separate “Afro hair” brush pack.
If you are looking for animal fur texture brushes, this is the pack you should check out!
Ludmila Stepanova created 55 gorgeous fur brushes, that include various types of fur – such as astrakhan fur, fox and mink fur, goat, leopard, tiger and others.
Here’s a pack of 10 realistic fur brushes for Procreate, made by Alina Mykhalyuk. In comparison to other packs, these brushes are pretty simple, but received a lot of positive reviews.
Additionally, you will also get a JPG instruction on how to use the brushes and draw fur.
Seamless Team provides us a set with a big variety of different fur textures and brushes:
• 28 Fur Brushes
• 8 Fur Build Brushes(Every brush has regular, light, dark and smudge version)
It’s purpose is to speed up drawing fur, and that is, whatever kind of fur you want to draw – soft, sharp, pointy or curly.
I’ve already mentioned their other brush sets, and probably will include some of them in future brush lists, since Seamless Team created a LOT of brushes – over 70 sets!
Another pack created by Seamless Team, it has 30 different texture fur brushes – Horizontal and vertical. The texture follows the brush’s direction.
Also, these brushes are color dynamic which means brush strokes vary in light and dark color, which is very convenient if you want to add some depth and dimension to the fur’s texture.
Here’s a pack of super-realistic fur by Extremebrushes! It has 8 brushes in total – a small pack, but worth checking out. My favorite one is the “X Jumpy fur”, which seems perfect for drawing fur on tails. Rodd Lopes (creator of Extremebrushes) is an artist himself, and also an author of other brush sets that may be a nice addition to your collection – the Procreate Feather Brushes and the Dragon Scale Brushes.
