Illustrator, Photoshop, Affinity and Procreate Brushes at Artifex Forge

Please note! These charcoal vector brushes are compatible with Adobe Illustrator CS1 to CC only. Get the Affinity Designer version HERE

Our authentic charcoal brushes are the result of hours of experimentation, which produced vector brushes with smudgy, life-like, soft textures that look so real that it’s hard to believe that they’re vectors. Use these tools to up your vector illustration game and create authentic looking artwork in Adobe Illustrator!

Use them to build subtle layers of charcoal tone but setting the opacity to ‘Multiply’.
