      Great for Gentle Distressing

      A lot of art I create requires some light texturing to give the effect of old, distressed print. Dead Subtle Brushes is PERFECT for exactly this!

      Great work team!

      I've been a huge fan of Staybold's work for ever so this was an instant purchase for me. I was pleasantly surprised by how usable these brushes are in so many different designs. You can actually get a lot less subtle than the name would imply too.

      Hand made feel without the headaches.

      These tools are must haves for modern designers looking to create digital works with a hand made feel. What's great is that Andrew and the TGTS team know both ends of physical and digital art making. You seriously couldn't produce stuff on this level of thorough quality without having years of getting your hands dirty
