After a trip to Italy, where I saw some stunning ancient Roman mosaics, it occurred to me that there was no tool which allowed users to draw their own mosaic designs digitally. On my return I set about making this set of authentic tile brushes and patterns. And now, after receiving so many of your requests for a Procreate compatible version, the wait is over!
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 them to bring a unique twist to contemporary designs too.
In order to make the pack I studied loads of real mosaics and tested the brushes by re-creating a real Roman design – the bear image screen-shot.
The pack contains all of these fantastic components:
- A Thorough Instruction Manual
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and use the brushes is supplied. This also includes a step-by-step guide, explaining my methodology for creating mosaics. With helpful screen-shots guiding you through.
- Mosaic Tile Brushes
A variety of mosaic tile brushes, all sourced from genuine 1600+ year old material.
Although you don’t need an Apple Pencil to use most of the pack, there are a number of pressure sensitive brushes which won’t work fully without one.
- Mosaic Pattern Brushes
Authentic mosaic repeat patterns – perfect for backgrounds or for flooding areas with tiles quickly.
- Layered Mosaic Pattern Brushes
Each pattern design is supplied as multiple brushes. This allows the user to flood areas quickly, choosing a different color for each part of the pattern and saving you time! Some of the designs also make great borders – as seen in the screen-shots.
- Texture Overlay Brushes
2 Stone textures and 2 grunge overlay texture brushes – use these to flood areas quickly and add age and authenticity to your designs. The featured textures are seamless, so you can fill any sized area.
- Mosaic Adjustment Brushes
These are perfect for creating and editing unusual shaped tiles and drawing lines of tiles that include small curves and odd angles.
- A Quick Reference Guide
This will help you quickly find the right tool for the task in hand.
