Creating tile brushes is one of my favorite go-to ways to bring a cultural reference into an illustration. A little bit of tile can take a boring door and turn it into a gorgeous Spanish neighborhood!
You can use your tile brushes (and my free ones below) to add so much gorgeous detail and variation to architectural illustrations like these.
