- [Voiceover] The next brush type I want to go over…is a line work brush.…Now, if you're painting traditionally…and you had to do smaller detailing,…you'd use a smaller brush, with a smaller nib,…in order to paint, let's say, fine little lines.…And that's what this brush is replicating.…This is for doing smaller detail,…outlining perimeter vector shapes…so they're not really clean and precise,…they're more organic and flare.…And that's what we're going…to use these type of brushes to do.…
That said, they also work really great…on their own to create certain types of graphics as well.…But like all the other brushes the same way,…is if I zoom in on this, just so you can see the detail,…all it is is just a little, small, thin, narrow dry brushing…and you saw me create some of these…in a previous movie,…and now we're going to turn it into a vector asset,…like we've done all the other ones.…By going to Window + Image Trace…and we'll click Ignore White.…
We want the image to trace really well,…so we're going to pull Noise over to nothing…
