Learn how to size a vector brush and change its orientation on a path in Adobe Illustrator.
- [Voiceover] Many of the methods I'm going over…in this course…overlap and relate to one another.…Meaning even though…I'm going to show you…several things in this movie…that I've already kind of touched on…in other movies,…I want to encapsulate all of them…into one movie…because there's a couple other elements…in terms…of controlling and using…a brush…that are important to know,…because you're going to run into using…all of these methods…as you compose your own Vector painting.…
So that's what we're going to do here…and the first type of brush…I want to go over…with you…is, once again,…just a simple…painted brush stroke…as the one showing here.…This is the base art,…here I've applied it to this path…using this brush…in the brushes palette.…And once again,…to apply a brush to a path,…you just simply select a path…if it's precreated…using a pin tool, by example.…And you just click on the brush…to apply it.…Now to change the color…of any brush on any path,…you just simply click whatever color…in this case…in the swatches palette…
