Learn how to take a set of custom vector-based brushes created in Adobe Illustrator and save them out and import them into any other file using brush sets.
- [Voiceover] Creating brushes like this…to use in Illustrator is pretty addictive.…I mean, I've created hundreds of them now,…and it makes them more useful,…the easier you can give access to them.…And, you can do that in several ways.…You can open old folder, or an old file that is…and just throw away all the art in it,…and you'll have all the brushes you used…in the Brushes palette for that specific file,…rename the file and start using it that way.…
I've done that as well, or you can set it up…as it's own brush set and save it,…and then load it into another file.…And, that's what I wanna show you here.…Here's five different paint brushes…that I created all from scratch…all hand-painted, I scanned them in…and created these vector brushes from it.…I've already created the brushes.…You can see them in the Brushes palette over to the right.…And these just show them applied…to these vector paths right here.…
So, I wanna have access to this brush set…from another file that I don't have…these brushes loaded into that specific file.…
