Once again, the Artifex Forge has been on an urban adventure – exploring the bright lights of the city in order to bring you better design resources! This time I’ve been searching for the best neon tubes to bring this super-realistic set of brushes to life.

Neon Realistic Brush Set

If, like me, you find the majority of existing neon effects limiting, lifeless and a little unrealistic then this is the perfect set for you. With these brushes, you can really give your design the wow-factor. So, why are they so much better?

• True-to-life: they are sourced from real neon tubing, so no flat, lifeless vector effects.
• Multiple highlight options: this recognizes that when you have a group of neon tubes together, they illuminate each other, creating more highlights.
• Flexibility: being brushes, they are malleable giving you more scope to create the images you want.
• Fun: you’re drawing with neon tubing… what more can I say?

The pack contains all of these fantastic components:

• The Brushes

28 flexible neon tube 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 that this feature only works in Illustrator CS5+).

• A quick reference guide

This will help you find the right brushes for the task in hand quickly.

• Instructions

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

Software compatibility: Adobe Illustrator CS5 and newer.

  2. Alisha Christian

    I love this set, but I do not have AI, would these by any chance work for Photoshop Elements? (Fingers crossed)

    • Carol Stratford

      Hey Alisha,

      Thanks for the comment and I can definitely help with your query!

      I am really sorry to disappoint you but this won’t work with Elements for you- this has been made for Illustrator as opposed to PS. When it comes to Elements, we have found that if the compatibility is listed as PS CS3 or lower, Elements can usually work with it. Any higher versions of PS tend to not be able to work within Elements.

      I hope that helps and please do let me know if I can help with anything else!

  3. Philip Dobson

    Any chance there would ever be an Affinity Designer version of this available? Thanks

    • carol@designcuts.com

      Hey Philip,

      Thanks for reaching out about this! We can definitely reach out to The Artifex Forge about this to see if this is software that he would consider creating his work in but we can’t guarantee that this will happen!

      We will definitely get the product team to keep an eye out for more Affinity compatible for you though as well!


    I want to make T shirt designs with this. Am I free to use it for T shirt Design? I have a few ideas for this

    • annabel@designcuts.com

Rest assured I have popped you over an email with more information :)
