      Spot on

      Really pleased with the brushes. The reference chart of colours is good but the videos are a bit too fast and don’t give you time to read the information while watching tutorial. Could do with a tutorial drawing going through it from start to finish.

      Paper textures are brilliant and easy to use. Well worth the money. Only had them for a few days and managed to create a few illustrations.

      So Much Fun!

      I'm an absolutely terrible "artist", but Kraftone has made my pieces look incredibly cool and like they were dug up from some old, dingy box of b-grade comics. There was definitely a bit of a learning curve at the beginning, but once you get the rhythm down, it's fluid. I'd recommend this to anyone, so definitely check it out!

      Great stuff!

      Really adds that vintage feel effortlessly. And it's easy to work with, partly because of the very well-structured guide that's included. Neat!

      This Process Took Me back to the 80's.

      I had a lot of fun using the color chart, brushes and 4 color process to make a cover for a client that looks like it would 40 years ago! The brushes were especially fun, as they were nuanced enough to make just the right line pressure for me.
