Learn how to take a linework brush created in Adobe Illustrator and apply it to a path and use it.
- [Voiceover] Even though Line Work brushes are intended…to be used with the paintbrushes as I showed in the…previous movie, and I use 'em for creating what I call…the foundation of vector painting.…They can also be used exclusively to achieve a nice look…and feel of their own.…And you've seen me demonstrate this one time.…I'm gonna demonstrate it again here.…I mean, it's okay, the vector art, in terms of what it is.…I just don't think it's very compelling.…
It's kinda boring with all the line weights being the same.…And I'm just using this as an example to show you how you…can create a really nice authentic looking kind of…hand-painted line work on a simple vector motif like this.…So, we're gonna do that to the image on the right.…This is the exact same art.…All of this is nothing but paths.…You can see those.…They're actually masked into rectangular shapes here.…But we're gonna apply the brushes to some of this line work.…
And you're gonna see how nice and authentic it's gonna…create in terms of the overall aesthetic.…
