Illustrator CC Art Brushes
Using Illustrator brushes is a great way to add natural textures to your artwork, and with Adobe's Mobile Brush app, you can capture textures with your phone or tablet and create vector brushes specifically for use with Illustrator right inside the app. The Adobe Brush CC app has some great editing tools so you can crop, rotate, and refine your brush using the app. Then back in Illustrator, the Brush automatically syncs to your libraries when you're connected to Creative Cloud, and you can start painting right away. It happens so quickly that it's easy to maintain a creative flow between the app and the desktop. My name is Laura Coyle. I'm a freelance illustrator, and in this hour-long tutorial, we'll explore the amazing creative potential of using Adobe Brush CC to capture textures from the world around you. In Illustrator, we'll explore the many options for customizing and using the brushes creatively. We'll be focusing on Art brushes, and even if you don't use the Brush app, there's so much to learn from this course about editing brushes, working with pressure sensitivity, masking, and other tips. The exercise file for this class contains a collection of Art brushes ready for you to experiment with, so grab your mobile device, launch Illustrator, and meet me in the next video.
