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.

If you're interested in creating, sharing, and even selling your own brushes for Concepts, you've come to the right place. Find resources below for how to create your own custom brushes for Concepts for iOS, prepare them for sale, and share them with the world via your personal Patreon, Creative Market, Gumroad, Etsy or other site. (Custom brush creation is coming soon to our Windows and Android platforms.) 

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 (see the instructions below). We may feature a selection of them as free samples in our market that designers and artists can try in-app, then link back to your store to purchase the full set.

We wish you the best with your creative work.

Featuring Your Brushes

We want to help support your work. If you'd like the opportunity to become a featured Concepts Creator, including in-app promotion of your brush library, make sure you've checked all items in our Custom Brush Checklist, then submit the following to

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.

4. A link to your brush pack.

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.
