The Secret to Warm Analog Grain & Noise Textures
If you're an illustrator and want to bring the magic of warm analog textures and noise to your work, this is going to be the best thing you see today!
Our Lo-Fi Subtle Grain and Noise Brushes put all the classic paper and ink textures you love in one handy library. From the soft graininess of newsprint to the beaten gritty look of comic books abused by the dirty oily hands of a teenager — we've got you covered.
We dug deep in our stockpile of vintage relics to find the best subtle textures for adding grain and noise to your work. These textures were carefully chosen from our expeditions to antique shops, garage sales, flea markets, and attics.
Watch the Brushes in Action
Now you can warm up your work with a catalog of analog imperfections. Here are some of the textures you can achieve with a little experimentation:
- Subtle texture of ink and newsprint
- Rough bristled dry brush shading
- Toothy grit of ink on thick cotton paper
- Warehouse ink and labeling defects
- Soft textured ink and paper oxidation
I have to point out just how inspiring it is to have this volume at your disposal. To use textures that were curated and collected by people who love this stuff from real junkin' adventures and hours of browsing through crates of catalogs and comics.

These brushes are exactly what I was looking for, and I'm sure that I'm not even using them properly. I have been learning how to create digital art for about two years now (Affinity) and have only really begun to explore brushwork (using a tablet) - the effects possible are overwhelming to me sometimes!
Anyway I have some vector art that needs scuffing up/softening a bit and these brushes are helping me to realise the image that's in my head - soooo hard!
