I recently took a trip down memory lane and, while sorting through old school and art college sketchbooks, re-discovered a love for the fine-liner. I used to spend more hours than I probably should have, making patterns, shapes and doodles. I soon realised that there was no brush set that would allow me to return to these roots and do this digitally in Adobe Illustrator. There began my desire for Fine Liner Brushes & Patterns!

Fine Liner Brushes & Patterns

The Artifex Forge is therefore pleased to present this authentic and versatile tool kit, which includes a huge range of different pen marks – straight and rough outlines, dots and dashes, stippling, hatching, zigzags and more.

Most of the brushes use the pattern brush feature, which tiles a section along the stroke meaning that the brushes don’t over-stretch on long strokes, streamlining the drawing process and saving you time. I’ve also included a few outline art brushes for shorter sections. Finally, there’s a set of seamless, repeat patterns, which I designed to fill large areas quickly.

Included in this set:

• The Brushes
– 6 Stipple Brushes.
– 4 Dot and dash pattern brushes.
– 4 Scribble and zigzag pattern brushes.
– 1 Outline pattern brush – use it for medium and long strokes.
– 9 Short outline art brushes.
– 5 Star and cross pattern brushes.
– 8 Star and cross scatter brushes.
– 3 Parallel line brushes.
– 4 Hatched line brushes.

If you are a tablet user, you’ll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included. Please note: This feature is available for CS5, CS6 and CC only.

• The Fineliner Patterns
In ten varieties. Use these to fill large areas quickly.

• A Quick Reference Guide
This will help you quickly find the right brushes for the task in hand.

• Example Files
A selection of the preview images. Use these to see how I achieved the look.

• Instructions
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes is supplied.

Software compatibility: Adobe Illustrator CS4-CC or newer.

    you should make a collection of just patterns like the ones included in this one. that’s what I’m looking fore but the focus seems to be on the brushes and I cound’t find any pack with just patterns in this style.

    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks so much for commenting and for letting us know your feedback Eric, this is really helpful!

      I am really sorry for any disappointment caused. We currently do not have any similar packs that only contain patterns, however I have popped Adriann, our Product Curator a request to see if we can possibly include something similar for you in future!

    Love the look of this product, will it work with Procreate?

    • Carol Stratford

      Hey Cait,

      Thanks so much for the comment :) So we can’t guarantee that this will work for Procreate as it hasn’t been listed in the compatibility but if you want to purchase it to test it out, I am more than happy to refund it if it wont work for you :)

      • Bethani Key

        Hello. I have done exactly this and unfortunately cannot be imported onto procreate :(

        • Annabel Smith

          Hey Bethani,

          Thanks so much for commenting! I am really sorry to hear that these brushes are not working for you in Procreate, however I really appreciate you letting us know- this will certainly be helpful for any of our community with similar queries.

          I can see that you have also emailed us so I have popped you a message so that I can get your refund organised for you :).
