When creating the previous Create Sketchy-Style Vectors tutorial, I created a number of brushes. I started playing around with the brushes and was happy with the results. I ended up create more of the brushes so I can distribute them. These brushes are great for creating sketchy or grungy vectors. Just apply the brushes to any path or object!
How To Use The Brushes
Download the Illustrator file at the bottom of the post and open it in Illustrator. Use your Brush Tool (b) to draw shapes or apply a particular brush to any object by selecting the object and then selecting a brush from the Brush Panel. Try playing with the Stroke of the brushes for different results. Below is some example uses of the brushes.
Save Brushes For Easy Use
You can also save the brushes so you don’t have to open the Illustrator file every time you want to use them. To save, click the bottom left pop up menu of the Brush Panel and select Save. Illustrator will default you to correct folder to save the brushes. To call up the brushes on a new document, click the pop-up menu of the Brush Panel and select the saved set from the User Defined option.
