Illustrator, Photoshop, Affinity and Procreate Brushes at Artifex Forge

Software compatibility: These vintage pattern brushes work with Illustrator only. Find a Photoshop version HERE an Affinity version HERE and a Procreate version HERE

While the Artifex Forge offers some very successful (and very useful!) vintage Illustrator texture brushes, even digitally drawing realistic, vintage artwork can be time-consuming and fiddly. So, why not try a new way to easily create your authentic-looking, etched illustrations with this incredibly realistic set of engraved, repeat, Illustrator patterns?

This nifty short-cut is so simple to use – just layer the patterns at different rotations to create hatching and build up shading. And if that wasn’t easy enough, I’ve also supplied each of the engraving patterns at different rotations as one-click graphic styles (at 90, 22.5, -22.5, 45 and -45 degrees) to further reduce the time it takes to create your vintage art! So much quicker than having to draw hundreds of cross-hatched lines!

The patterns are supplied in black but it’s super easy to adjust the color and I’ve supplied comprehensive instructions on how to do this.

Please note: the patterns are designed to work with vector shapes only and will not work with bitmap images. The product is designed as a quick way to build up tone and texture and not as a one-click effect to convert photos or other images.

Check out the TUTORIAL VIDEO and be amazed at just how easy the patterns are to use!
