Affinity Designer is a pro-end workhorse that brings desktop and iPad artists together, so it’s quite evident why more and more creators opt for this app. And though Affinity has already confirmed its status of revolutionary design software, artists still search of quality and appealing textures and brushes.
We’ve decided to save some of your time and bring a selection of twenty Affinity Designer brushes, including shader, wax, crayon, liner, and grunge brushes from The Artifex Forge and RetroSupply Co.
Our Team’s Top Pick
Hand Drawn Affinity Designer Brushes
The pack by Pixelbuddha you’re looking at right now contains 20 pixel and vector brushes — two essential formats of Affinity Designer Brushes. All of them are accompanied by cute llamas that you can recreate using a sponge, pastel, marker, or noise brush.
Perfect Pencils — Affinity Brushes Pack
This exciting pack features quality Affinity Designer brushes that don’t stretch when strokes are elongated. With this set, you can use just one brush to create a range of stroke lengths without having to switch brushes. This will make drawing quicker and much more like the real thing.
