Learn how to take a scatter brush created in Adobe illustrator and apply it to a path and use it in a design.
- [Voiceover] I think scatter brushes…are one of the coolest features in Illustrator.…They're kind of magical in terms of how they work…and even though they can be somewhat memory intensive,…the more you use it, the bigger the file's gonna get,…it's worth it in my opinion because…the aesthetic qualities it adds to an illustration,…especially a flat vector based illustration like this…created from geometric shapes, happy, little flower,…we're gonna add some scatter brushes to it…and I think you're gonna see just how much quality…of aesthetic it adds to a design like this.…
So the first thing we want to do,…whenever I'm working with brushes,…especially the more complex a composition gets,…you want to use layers,…you want to manage and organize your brushes…into layers that make sense…so you can turn them, one, on and off,…but you can access them 'cause you're gonna be layering…one thing on top of another to get a certain look and feel…or you need to have a hierarchy of shapes in such a way…to give the appearance you're after…
