Using the Hue Shift option

In this final exercise of the chapter, I'm going to show you what's going on with that Hue Shift option, how you can actually manage the process, because it can't be a little bit chaotic. We're working inside of a catch-up document called Now for Hue Shift.ai. That's found inside the 14_Brush_Factors folder. Both Brush Type and Circus Arts, both of these brushes are expressed as grayscale artwork as you can see here inside the Brushes palette so there is Circus Arts, there is Brush Type, they're both grays, similar shades of gray as well.

And yet, when they are applied to exactly the same color paths, so both of these paths are stroked with a common color, which is 100% magenta and 75% yellow. Both of them are set to Hue Shift but somehow they end up becoming completely different colors as a result and Hue Shift is supposedly finding the average hue inside the document and applying that to the brush stroke, but it must be doing something a little more complicated...
