Lynda - Artistic Painting with Illustrator: Object-Creation Brushes



Lynda - Artistic Painting with Illustrator: Object-Creation Brushes
Genre: eLearning
Discover how to paint and draw with Adobe Illustrator’s powerful object-creation brushes. In this course, artist and author Sharon Steuer will show you how to use art brushes, pattern brushes, scatter brushes, and brush-like symbols to warp, bend, repeat, stretch, scatter, and distribute objects along a path, and quickly populate scenes with complex groups of objects.
You’ll learn how to scale, colorize, and modify your objects; create different versions of brushes; edit the underlying paths; and fix common mistakes. You’ll also see how to prepare artwork to make into brushes, resize brushes, and understand which brush or symbol is appropriate for different drawing situations. Plus, learn to paint with raster objects in dynamic new ways, and auto-generate corners for vector and raster pattern brushes.
See the previous course in the series, Artistic Painting with Illustrator: Natural Media Brushes, for Sharon’s insights on more traditional tools like the Paintbrush and Blob Brush.
