This was by far my hardest brush pack project ------
Especially in trying to balance AI's hadling of the brush --
(making sure it wouldn't crash everyones system when applied)
and making it look somewhat like real water.
I almost gave up ----- twice
The more realistic it looked ---- the slower it would apply
The more stylized the water elements -- the less it looked like - water
But I think I was able to achive a balance of the two --
at least it works on my system -- and I'm pleased with the look
( They may slow yours to a crawl -- some feedback would be nice -- if you use ---- or just play around with )
No rules for use as usual -- except please - don't repackage or try to sell them as your own...
They are watermarked –
Being Illustrator you are encouraged to edit, bend, change, and mutilate to your hearts content;
just have fun and make stuff.
1. Download -
2. Unzip to - Adobe Illustrator\Presets\Brushes
3. Draw circle or whavy type line
(squares and sharp angles may require a little extra work to get them to look right )
4. Apply bursh of choice
5. EXPERIMENT with "opacity, blend modes, stroke" size, direction, color, etc...etc... to get the look you want
It doesn't have to be water ----- It could be any kind of liquid --- or whatever
a fav –--or just a quick note - or emoticon (ha) – makes providing free stuff a lot more worthwhile
Also link showing how you have used them (if you use them) --
would help me come up with some new ideas as to what types of burshes or other resources would be useful to the community.
(see new poll)
I'll be putting the thumbnails in the edit comments so others can see your work
example of use
