This kit has helped me greatly in my process, I recommend it to anyone who wants to give an aged ink effect to their project. The rendering is qualitative and it's easy to use: 10/10.

huge variety + great effects

The only somehow "negative" point is that there are sooo many brushes, some of wich are quite similar. But actually I like this because you have a texture for lots of different situations.

Super efficient and individual at the same time

I love how I was able to start using the action pack and brushes right away. It’s pretty straight forward. You can watch the tutorial to understand all the ins and outs about but you don’t have to. One of the very few tools that’s efficient but allows for highly individual designs at the same time.

A revelation

Discovering these kits has been a revelation to me. They are so well produced, and add such subtlety and nuance to an artwork, that they pay for themselves straight away. Here you get more texture brushes than most people could use in a lifetime, and since they can be mixed in any combination, the creative possibilities are pretty much infinite. If you've never bought an add-on kit, this is well worth trying out. The documentation, support and community is second to none.
