SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY – Our oil paint texture brushes work with Illustrator CS1-CC. An Affinity Designer version is available HERE
This authentic oil paint brush tool kit is the result of hours of experimentation, discovering the diverse textures that can be made using oil paint. I’ve used brushes, palette knives, cloths, scraps of cardboard and even my own fingers. The resulting Adobe Illustrator texture brushes are the closet you’ll get to real oils in Illustrator.
So, why is this pack so useful?
Real Canvas Background Pattern – I’ve included a seamless canvas pattern swatch to add extra realism to your designs! Supplied as an Adobe Illustrator texture swatch.
Diverse texture brushes – a wide variety of different paint textures are included.
Anti-stretch brushes – The pack contains a mixture of anti-stretch pattern brushes (which don’t distort over long strokes) and art brushes which add a more dynamic feel.
Made with mixing in mind – the gaps in the brushes allow the user to layer the strokes so that the colors below show through – simulating roughly mixed paint.
Authentic look – every stroke was created using real oil paint.
The pack contains all of these fantastic components:
- The Illustrator Texture Brushes
50 authentic, messy oil paint brushes. If you are a tablet user, you’ll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included (please note that this feature only works in Adobe Illustrator CS5+).
- The Canvas Background Pattern
Add further realism to your artwork. Sourced from real canvas and supplied in bitmap format.
- A quick reference guide
This will help you quickly find the right brushes for the task in hand (a PDF version has also been included for users of Adobe Illustrator CS1-CS4).
- Example files
A selection of the preview images. Use these to see how I achieved the look (Please note: These are available for Adobe Illustrator CS5, CS6 and CC only).
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes is supplied. This also includes specific tips explaining how I made the screen-shot designs.
