How to Create and Sell Your Custom Brushes

A Concepts Tutorial for iOS

Resources for how to create, prepare, market and sell your custom brushes with Concepts App.


Dear Creator, thank you for helping us to design awesome tools for the Concepts community. Below, you'll find resources for how to create your own custom brushes for Concepts for iOS (Windows and Android coming soon), and share them with the world via your personal Patreon, Creative Market, Gumroad, Etsy or other site.

This means you're welcome to sell your brushes, give them away, or do whatever else you can imagine with them... like promote your hard work and creative style. We won't take any of it, it's yours.

If you choose, you can send us your collection of brushes for review. We may feature a selection of them as free samples in our market that designers can try in-app, then link back to your store to find more of your creative work.

Below, you can find resources to help you start creating brushes, learn how to prepare them for the professional world, and contact us for support and featuring. We wish you success and look forward to working with you!

We love to see and share your work. If you'd like the opportunity to become a featured Concepts Creator including in-app promotion, make sure you've checked all items in our Custom Brush Checklist, then submit the following to support@concepts.app:
 

1. A piece of artwork created with the brushes.

2. A paragraph describing your brush pack and the inspiration or reasons behind it.

3. A bit about yourself, so we can get to know you.
 

The possibilities for brushes are endless and unique, but if you'd like an example of what we're looking for, take a look at Concepts Creators Matthew Baldwin and MiksKS.
