Once again, the Artifex Forge has been on an urban adventure – exploring the bright lights of the city in order to bring you better design resources! This time I’ve been searching for the best neon tubes to bring this super-realistic set of brushes to life.
If, like me, you find the majority of existing neon effects limiting, lifeless and a little unrealistic then this is the perfect set for you. Most are entirely computer generated and therefore lack the lifelike qualities and quirks of genuine neon tubing. With these brushes, you can really give your design the wow-factor. So, why are they so much better?
True-to-life: they are sourced from real neon tubing, so no flat, lifeless vector effects.
Multiple highlight options: this recognizes that when you have a group of neon tubes together, they illuminate each other, creating more highlights.
Flexibility: being brushes, they are malleable giving you more scope to create the images you want.
Fun: you’re drawing with neon tubing… what more can I say?
