Neil says…

I had the idea for the Twisted brush pack when I experimented with Affinity’s fresh engine that is multi-brush. I thought it would be cool to have the ability to lay single strokes of colour which ultimately seemed like pictures down, so I started to make a brush pack.

I wanted the brushes to sense fresh and different to anything something which could exploit the chances of the multi-brush engine in an original way. I think these brushes allow you to add immediate style and thickness to a graphic or digital art project with one stroke, and do just that.
