About this course

Brushes give you awesome effects especially when you want to create a unique illustration style or add some texture to your designs. You can create brushes out of anything: crayons, charcoal, dirt, ink pens, pastels and heaps more. This simple course will show you how to create your own brushes from scratch, edit them in Photoshop and build them up in Illustrator so you can use them right away.

What project are we going to develop?

On this course we're going to develop your own vector brushes that you can use on any project without having that much experience. The steps we take are simple and if you follow along you can always create brushes in the future.

Who’s this course for? Requirements

We're going to show how to use Adobe Illustrator with basic knowledge required. We're using Creative cloud (CC) so if you have a previous version it may look a little different but the basic tools are still the same, so you shouldn't have any problems.
