Each week, we offer up a free brush set for our SketchBook Pro members, and since we’re heading straight toward Halloween in the next two weeks, we thought we’d give our users something that was appropriate for the Season of the Witch: Blood. Download the Blood Splatter Brush Set, upload it to SketchBook, and start adding murder and mayhem to your drawings today.
What’s in the Blood Brush Set
This set is full of stamps and smears that are perfect for adding a bit of horror to your drawings, including bloody handprint stamps (both hands), drips of blood, slashes of color, drips and droplets and stabs and chops of chunks of don’t even ask what that is. These brushes have appropriate names like Desperate Smear, Sad Puddle, and “Oh, God It’s All Over.” Mix and match them for maximum mayhem. If you’re a fan of grotesque art, you’ll probably be happy with this set, but even if you don’t like that sort of thing these brushes are good at adding subtle background effects. It works great with the Skullz Brush Set from earlier this year, especially if you like to create one-color art that is just red (with white or black).
