    The (T)Rusty Nib

    Overall it took me a bit to try all of the nibs, brushes and add-ons included. But, I had fun doing it! Found few of my favourite ones to draw absolute bullshit with, and few that I can use for actual work. Would recommend 99% (the 1% for the urge to draw absolute bullshit effortlessly)!

    All you need in one set

    This set is overall perfect. Tidy folder sections and great feel from dry to watery brushes. But wait... the Bonus effects are awesome - shader and pointilist not only tilts but it change sizes of dots and lines too. Such a helpful tool for illustrators!
