In this movie, we're going to make a Twill Tape brush;…a little more complicated than the other ones we've done, but I'll break it down…into easy steps for you to follow.…Let's start with a rectangle.…Grab the Rectangle Tool, and make a rectangle that is 4 points wide, and 8…points tall, and click OK.…We're going to change the Stroke to None, and the Fill again to gray,…but we'll make a really light gray this time.…Now we're going to draw a line segment, so grab the Line Segment, click on the…page; we're going to make a line segment that's 12 points, and 45 degrees,…so we don't have to worry about rotating it. Click OK.…
There is our line segment.…We're going to change the Stroke to 0.25, and we're going to make the Stroke…color a slightly darker shade of gray than the gray we've got going.…Now we can make copies,…so let's just move this out of the way of the rectangle.…I suppose I could zoom in just a little bit more to move these over, and we're…going to go ahead and make a copy of this, but we're going to use the nudge…
