Illustrator, Photoshop, Affinity and Procreate Brushes at Artifex Forge

SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY – These vintage brushes work in Affinity Designer only. Get the Illustrator Version HERE and the Procreate version HERE 

After a trip to Sicily, where I saw some stunning ancient Roman mosaics, it occurred to me that there was no tool which allowed Affinity Designer users to draw their own mosaic designs. So, I set about making this complete mosaic tile tool kit – it contains everything you need to create your own realistic looking fauxsaics.

In this pack I’ve captured the irregular, chipped edges of the original Roman source material (c. 4th century AD) allowing you to create stunning designs and illustrations with a sense of antiquity. However, the pack isn’t just for adding a vintage look – as you’ll see from the screen-shots you can use the Affinity Designer brushes, patterns and textures to bring a unique twist to contemporary designs too.

To test the pack I studied real mosaics and put the Affinity brushes through their paces by re-creating a real Roman design – the bear image screen-shot.

Don’t worry if you’re new to Affinity Designer brushes, I’ve included full instructions and created this handy TUTORIAL VIDEO Find other handy tutorialsHERE

This was my first Artifex Forge product and my first plugin for Affinity ever! I’ve always loved roman mosaics so when I saw this, I couldn’t help but grab it. Actually I wasn’t even familliar with Designer then, but Jeremy makes his tools so easy to use that The Mosaic Maker turned to be a valuable learning tool for me. Thak you so very much Jeremy for creating this!
