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.
I've made you some piece of art, but, I needed to make something for you. So, you could see this particular strange feature. And that is, I'll show you in options. I'm just going to make somthign, and apply the brush. And look at that nasty stuff that happens. It happens when you have a stroked object that overlaps in a strange way and here is the option for it, its here this overlap, and look at that I fixed it, that's pretty cool it doesn't always work. And it seems to work better in Illustrator CC then previous versions.
There are some bugs, so let's look at this other one. As I said sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, there, that's fixed, and there, that's not. There you go. And not. Let's try another one, okay so here it is. And there it didn't quite fix it, now sometimes if you reapply it, it works and especially if you've got pre CC it sometimes will work the second time if you don't do it.
But again its only were it has intersect you can try adjusting the overlap. Making sure it says, adjust corners and folds to prevent overlaps, and that's where that feature is. So, most of the time, you're going to want that on, I suspect there are times when you're going to want a special effect where it overlaps corners and folds. I can't think of it right now. If you do, feel free to send me a link to something, so I can see why this is an amazing feature that you should have enabled, but most of time you're going to want to just know that this is where you prevent the overlaps.
You're not going to notice it on most objects, it's stroked objects that are going to make the difference.
