Fantastic Quality

The consistent quality of these brushes is fantastic. I appreciate the clear labeling and categorization of each type of brush, and the bonus effect brushes were great. Overall, these brushes are a time saver and did well to recreate the look of ink drawing on paper, which is what I was looking for. Well worth the price.

My go to brush pack

This is really my go to brush pack for final pieces. I have many of True Grits packs at this time, I love them all, but this one might be my favourite. The text brushes as well as the many many pens and also paper textures make this one I constantly return to. I don't think I've created any art without the Rusty Nib since I purchased it.
