Animals are among the elements that are often used in design. This is why, we decided to round up animal-themed design elements that you may find useful in your projects. Last time, we listed a big collection of high-resolution animal fur textures that you can download and use for free. In the past, we also put together a great number of animal silhouettes clip art in vector format.
In this post, we rounded up more than 600 animal-themed brushes contained in 35 sets. You can choose from wild animals to domesticated animals or from land animals to water animals. With this wide range of choices, we are pretty sure that you will find something that’s useful for you in this round up.
