Illustrator, Photoshop, Affinity and Procreate Brushes at Artifex Forge

Watercolor Brushes are compatible with Adobe Illustrator CS1 to CC only. Get our Affinity Designer watercolor brush set HERE

After months of experimentation, The Artifex Forge is very excited to release our naturalistic, watercolor vector brushes. This versatile watercolor brush pack for Illustrator features a huge range of authentically textured watercolor brush strokes that were sampled from real watercolors for maximum authenticity. Why not grab these flexible watercolor textures and take your digital art to the next level?

Real watercolors are applied by building up washes to create tone. The unpredictable runs and blemishes give watercolor both character and charm, and I’ve captured every element in this super-realistic texture brush set. They not only look great but are also amazingly easy to use – enjoy yourself with brushes that are both well-made and full of creative potential! To use them, just set the brush blend mode to multiply and overlap the brush strokes, building up that all-important watercolor texture and tone.

Here’s what happy customers had to say about Watercolor Brushes –

“Really nice work, I’ve tried other illustrator watercolor brushes and none deliver what they promised or looked realistic, so I’m so glad to have found these, great work!”

I am new to AI brushes and am getting the hang of these watercolors. I really love the deepening of color when you overlap and then multiply. Love this shop!
