Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting color and tint, part of Designing a Poster with Custom Brushes in Illustrator.
- So now that I have my brushes and my symbols…loaded into my Brushes and Symbols panel,…I'm ready to go ahead…and start customizing some of these.…So what I'm going to do first is,…I'm going to go over to my Stroke and Fill,…and make sure I have none set for my Fill,…and just a black Stroke for right now.…Next, I'm going to take my Brush tool.…I'm just going to brush a simple curve stroke in here.…Choosing one of my brushes, you can see…how it applies to the different variations.…I want to customize the colorization method for this,…and make sure that it's set up so that it can accept…new colors as I go forward.…
To change this, simply go over to your Brushes panel,…and double click on one of your brushes.…Down below, we have a section here called Colorization.…By default, the Colorization Method means None.…And if I hit OK, you can see that what this is going to do…is just leave my brush as is,…and it's not going to color based on my stroke color.…I don't want that.…I want to be able to change my color as needed.…
