How to Get the Most from Your Illustrator Brushes

by Dustin Lee October 22, 2015

You probably know that Illustrator brushes are way different than Photoshop brushes.

Especially art brushes. Unlike Photoshop brushes that can generate strokes dynamically, Illustrator brushes (Art Brushes) are essential shapes that get stretches and compressed.

As a result, it takes a little more finesse to get amazing results. The upside is that it's vector. So once you get that great look you can resize it and adjust it with ease (unlike Photoshop).

In this video I'll show you three simple tips for getting the most from your Illustrator brushes.
