Love this

I have the kraft tones pack, but sometimes I don't want to put the formular together and just want a simple fill or shader and this is absolutely perfect. Has sped up my work flow whilst keeping that retro flare to my drawings. I recommend!

Love it!

The variety of brushes gave me exactly what I need for my halftone illustrations.

You get brushes for coloring and brushes for shadowing which is super convenient.
