Hey creatives, I have long been a fan of Chris’s cool creative site and it is rare I am not downloading freebies featuring all kinds of cool tools such as this one I am highlighting today! And yes, I am somewhat obsessed with adding grain in my imagery so this is a nice bonus set to have on hand.
8 Free Stipple Shading Brushes for Adobe Illustrator
This is a pack of 8 stipple brushes created by Chris Spooner to paint grungy details and features into your artwork with Adobe Illustrator’s brush tool. He created this and the reasons I am picking these brushes out to pass along to you guys is that they really have a variety of excellent uses in any kind of fantasy / fairy tale creations.
“One popular shading method I’ve noticed is particularly prominent in apparel design and illustrations with a retro vibe is the use of stippling, where fine vector textures are added to build up tones and shade in areas of darkness. After seeing how effective this technique is, I created my own set of Illustrator scatter brushes to provide myself and my readers the tools required to create this effect.”
