Splatter Brushes Freebie from Corelila -in 2008, when I was 14 years old, I uploaded a pack of photoshop brushes to the website DeviantArt. As a young person, I was completely obsessed with art- most specifically, digital art! Part of my motivation was that I had received so much help and free resources from the good people at DeviantArt… I wanted to give back.

I still want to give back!

These splatter brush freebies have been downloaded over 40,000 times. I can’t even tell you how huge that number is to me. It’s massive. I feel so lucky to have been even a small part of that many people’s lives. Funny story… my first “big kid design job” actually had my brushes saved in their elements folder. Yes, mine. No, I didn’t save them there. They had been using my work for about four years before I was even hired!

So here they are, in all their 14-year-old Molly glory.


If you really want to see some cringe, my old Deviantart page is still up. My username was Corelila, as you can see by the heart. Go easy on my young, young self. lol.

When I decided to make my Etsy shop in 2013, these were some of the first listings I created. I decided it was time to go big or go home. Time to do a little… rebranding. So Splatters brushes evolved!

In the second stage of the evolution, I went super minimal and you know what? I think I actually prefer the original version in 2020. Maximalism is in, and all of that.

For the sake of it being 2020, and this is another brand new website, I thought it would be fun to rebrand them yet once again.

To be completely honest with you guys, I still think I prefer the original more. But hey, maybe you have a different opinion. What do ya’ll think?

You probably want to get to downloading the dang things now, right?

You may:

  • Use these for commercial work (I SWEAR I saw them in a Ford commercial one time)
  • Use these for personal artwork… in fact please do.
  • Send these to your friends, coworkers, whoever.
  • Use these creatively!

You may NOT:

  • Re-upload these to your website and let people buy them, or give them away for free there.
  • Rename the file, and pretend like you made them.
  • Put them in an art book as is and sell that book.

If you would like to link to these from your website that is awesome and I totally welcome that- but send them here, to digitalpresscreation.com and let them download from this blog post.

If you would like to give me credit for my brushes in your artwork, credit digitalpresscreation.com (I could honestly really use the backlinks… I scratch your back, you scratch mine?) You are under no obligation to do this, but if you would, I totally would appreciate it! 🙂

The little 14 year old inside me is scratching her head on how the decision to try and make these brushes had such a massive ripple effect on who I am today. Kids. Teens. You don’t know it yet, but pretty much everything you do builds on itself.

Thank you all so much for everything!
