Discover how to paint and draw with Adobe Illustrator’s powerful object-creation brushes. In this course, artist and author Sharon Steuer will show you how to use art brushes, pattern brushes, scatter brushes, and brush-like symbols to warp, bend, repeat, stretch, scatter, and distribute objects along a path, and quickly populate scenes with complex groups of objects. You’ll learn how to scale, colorize, and modify your objects; create different versions of brushes; edit the underlying paths; and fix common mistakes. You’ll also see how to prepare artwork to make into brushes, resize brushes, and understand which brush or symbol is appropriate for different drawing situations. Plus, learn to paint with raster objects in dynamic new ways, and auto-generate corners for vector and raster pattern brushes.



See the previous course in the series, Artistic Painting with Illustrator: Natural Media Brushes, for Sharon’s insights on more traditional tools like the Paintbrush and Blob Brush.

Topics include:
  • Creating and experimenting with object-creation brushes
  • Preparing artwork to make into brushes
  • Scaling and distorting brushes by varying line weight and stroke profiles
  • Stretching versus repeating portions of a brush
  • Colorizing complex brushes
  • Fixing problem brushes with vector editing tools
  • Exploring different ways to make and use pattern brushes
  • Customizing pattern brushes and adding auto-corners
  • Modifying scatter brush parameters
  • Adjusting brush definition and tablet pressure parameters
  • Fixing common mistakes
  • Using scatter brushes versus symbols
  • Warping and bending raster art using brushes
  • Combining stroke effects with brushes
